Featured: Vogue’s Ultimate Wedding Planner Master List

After taking a brief hiatus to welcome my baby girl into the world, I couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off my year. VOGUE has included Blue Lavender Events in their Ultimate Wedding Planner Master List along with some of the best planners in the world and to say that it is the most incredible honour is an understatement.  It’s unbelievable how far BLE has come from launching just 3 years ago and I couldn’t have done it without the unwavering support of my friends, industry colleagues, couples, family, and most importantly my favourite person in the world – my husband Koh.  I am more in love with this industry then I was when I first started and cannot wait to see what else is in store for BLE.  Thank you all so much for your continued faith and support!

Huy & Graham | A Burroughes Building Wedding

Huy + Graham’s intimate shindig was a perfect reflection of their classic style, charismatic personalities and impeccable taste.

These downtown Toronto dwellers chose the Queen West Burroughes Building as their venue of choice, providing the perfect backdrop for the 20’s inspired Art Deco wedding with its exposed brick and historic charm. Thoughtful touches of black, ivory and gold, tables lined with phalaenopsis orchids plus lots and lots of candlelight set the tone for this romantic affair.  Every detail, from the bride’s showstopping Jenny Packham gown and handmade vintage jewelled bouquet to the stationery, sparkling chandelier and colour coordinated dinnerware was an homage to the Art Deco theme and the result was picture perfect.

While the couple wanted a wedding that pulled elements from the glamourous aspects of the era, they also didn’t want the celebration to feel stuffy, so a lot of fun details were incorporated to give the day a non-traditional vibe.  Floating glass bulbs filled with candles provided a unique backdrop while the couple exchanged nuptials in front of their loved ones. Ribbon-tied flatware lined the beautifully adorned table tops and instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple opted for a decadent tower of Croquembouche.  Guests were also treated to a delicious raw bar during cocktails as well as a gourmet coffee station where they could drink to their heart’s content!

What a beauty of a day. Thanks to the dynamic duo of A Brit and A Blonde – Jessica and Jason for these gorgeous captures!
