Congratulations Michelle and Justin!

Set in the beautiful Gardiner Museum, this couple's wedding celebration was a true family affair. The bride's sister in law made the decorative vases; and everywhere you looked friends and family were adding special touches to the festivities. Michelle and Justin made their reception a representation of their cool style with rented black leather couches and black glass tables. Jamie Kennedy Kitchens provided the catering which included an outdoor kebob bbq station and a special request for Kraft Dinner.
Working with this couple was a dream, and it let me reunite with some of my favourite people (I've been friends with the bride's family for years). Wishing Michelle and Justin a lifetime of happiness and love.

Wedding Shoes

Hi all,
Summer has finally come to Toronto!
It's wedding season and the invitations are filling your mailbox.
For brides and bridesmaids (MOBs, MOGs, and anyone else looking for a great look) I had to pass on these fabulous shoes from the bridal collection of Chie Mihara.
Chie Mihara is a Japanese-Spanish designer who makes beautiful, unique and, most importantly, comfortable shoes that you can wear for hours.
Take a look:

Type A Events has no affiliation with Chie Mihara, just a respect for the work she does and the products she produces.

On a beautiful day in late September, Rob and Lara said "I Do" in front of their closest friends and family. This artistic duo chose to use their favourite authors as the theme to their wedding. Type A Events worked closely with them to bring this theme to life. From the author-dedicated tables, to the fun "Polaroid" station-this brunch wedding was filled with warm and lovely moments. The relaxed atmosphere, and the love between the bride and groom helped make this one of the most memorable weddings of the year!

The "Salinger Table" named after one of the couple's favourite authors.
Each table had a favourite book by the chosen author that was given away
as a gift during the games portion.

Wild flowers, the bride's favourite, were used everywhere.
Dancing the Hora, followed by dancing a traditional Armenian folk dance.

The kids sat at the "Dr. Seuss table"--Green Eggs and Ham were not served at this brunch.

Long tables added to the warmth of this event.

Petals lining the aisle.

The Polaroid station was a big hit with all.

Each table also had scrabble tiles which spelled out "Love" in a variety of languages to
display the couple's love of travel.
When one cake just isn't enough...

Special guests that just happened to be in the neighbourhood!

Lara's High Tea Themed Bridal Shower

There's nothing like a good cup of tea and delicate scone heaped with devonshire cream to put you in a celebratory mood. Lara's close friends and family gathered to celebrate her upcoming wedding with a English garden themed high-tea. And yes, hats were required!

Each guest was given a unique tea cup to use for the day.

Each table was named after a different type of tea that the bride-to-be loves.

Not surprisingly, "Lara's Candy Shoppe" was a popular stop.
