BRITTANY & ZACH HORTICULTURE BUILDING

toast events wedding planning ottawa

I almost pinched myself when I walked into the Horticulture Building at 9 am to check in on set-up. There were no words. Even with partial decor I knew every design detail we worked tirelessly on was about to live it's own life.  It's one thing when you're designing on paper- but to see it all come full circle, is truly special. 

We first met Brittany when we're invited to plan her surprise proposal by Laura Kelly Photography. I had never met the bride or groom until just shortly before the proposal, when I shouted from a bush "Zach- show me the goods". (aka the ring) before I walked him to where his unsuspecting fiance-to-be was waiting. And I didn't know it then- but we were in it for the long run. 

Almost two years later Brittany and Zach tied the knot at the Basilica Notre Dame with their reception at the Horticulture Building. Brittany chose her vendors well, investing in the best of what she loved and trusted them to take her wedding from what she envisioned to something which was more beautiful then she could have ever expected. 

It was an absolute honour to plan and work with such a talented team on behalf of Brittany & Zach. 

FROM THE BRIDE:

I can’t believe this is the subject of this email - i’m still a crying wreck today, I can’t believe how emotional I’ve been about all of this.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, from the very bottom of my heart, for everything you (and your team) did for us. Not just on Saturday but throughout the whole engagement. I’m still beyond overwhelmed at the perfection that was Saturday. Walking into that venue was a serious highlight for me.

Not only the set-up/vision (which i know included so many little touches from your own stash, which were truly breathtaking), but also the timeline, organization, and going to bat for me with the crazy people at the church - i cannot thank you enough!

I can seriously say that i look back on Saturday with zero regrets. There is not a single thing i would do differently. I honestly felt like I lived the Toast motto - i felt like the most special guest at my very own wedding reception! I let go of all of my anxiousness, nerves and stress and was able to just fully enjoy all of it!! I cannot thank you enough. Every single one of my family/bridal party who interacted with you and your team this weekend had glowing things to say. We could NOT have done it without you.

I’m so so proud of my wedding day - thank you so much, this is the best feeling!!

Minimalist + Monochrome European Wedding Inspiration

In a nutshell, these three words sum up the essence of everything I try to emulate within my work. And I'm particularly proud to share our latest feature on Ruffled

This creative collab started with a quick coffee at Starbucks with no other than Laura Kelly from Laura Kelly Photography. And as we sipped our latte's on a dreary February afternoon, Laura pitched her shoot idea about olives. Yes, the little seed, which was really an olive - began to sprout new ideas of how we wanted to take our shoots to the next level and that perhaps take us out of Ottawa for a mini creative retreat in Montreal. 

So we set ourselves some specific goals. I can't speak for Laura, but I can definitely say I promised myself that I would stick true to my own personal sense of style. Minimalist, Scandinavian, European, while pulling a few period pieces in like the gorgeous scale you'll see bellow. Needless to say the details came together effortlessly with a solid creative team backing the whole project. 

So enjoy my pretties, and I promise, you will see much more minimalism inspired design from me in the future ;)
