I met Brittany & Richard through a good friend of mine, a few years ago. These two are honestly some of the most good-hearted, hilarious people I've ever met. They are [both] witty, sarcastic and loveable.
They chose a late afternoon ceremony, outdoors, with 175 of their friends and family. Luckily, the rain held off until the reception began. [Have you ever heard a thunderstorm under a party tent? because I hadn't until then]
They went very untraditional with dinner [which is my favorite] and had Nitiza's Pizza in Sherwood Park cater, it was delicious, and surprisingly hot when served. Nitiza's staff were friendly and very organized, which made my part in dinner, a lot easier.
Brittany + Richard chose their siblings to MC their wedding and it was a great choice! Richards sister definitely knew how to keep it light and funny.
This will go down as one of the best parties I've I have never seen so many people on one dance floor, & NOBODY left! It was jammed packed the entire night. I'm not sure how they had that much energy!
Their rustic-chic theme was simple, gorgeous and elegant. Plus Brittany pretty much DIY'd the entire wedding! Look at this gorgeous arch (that's some serious talent)!
Oh. The best part of the wedding? 11:30 late lunch catered by McDonalds + cheeseburgers. Can you say amazing or what?

A few weeks ago, I was able to be a part of my first wedding in 2018! [Also, my first wedding in almost 4 years!]
I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am and how excited I am to begin doing what I love again! I was given an opportunity without even realizing the motivation it was about to give me.
Samantha and Paul are the perfect examples of pure, true, love. The way they looked at each other melted my heart and the love I saw they had for each other was so refreshing. They chose the most gorgeous venue, just outside Spruce Grove and went with a rustic country theme.
Samantha and Paul shared their special day with 120 of their closest family and friends. They had a BBQ-style buffet.
The love and support they have from their friends and family were incredible to see.
They had games set-up for their guests when they arrived, which was a fun twist on the outdoor party and a scavenger hunt to keep the guests entertained and get some fun photo ops.
The vision matched so perfectly with their personalities; carefree, easy-going and full of love.
& I might have fallen in love with a couple of new country songs!
I’ve been thinking about getting back into event planning for a while now. Of course, I had to weight out every single aspect; Good; Bad; Positive; Negative; and of course logistics, before thinking it may be might be a good idea. Well, here we are; May 1st and I think it’s a GREAT idea and a great way to start back up into event planning, even if it's only part-time. I recently got into Virtual Assisting and realized it’s such a good fit for what I do day-to-day, what I want to do in the long run, and what I have a passion for. I have a passion for planning, I love helping people, and I consider myself to be very organized [I mean what 20-something year old uses a paper planner to plan their entire life when there’s such amazing technology out there?] So why wouldn’t I tap into a market that could benefit a business, AND that I would truly enjoy doing? I am currently in the process of putting a business plan together, get my name out there and take the steps necessary to get back out into the event planning world. I’m excited to share my journey; I’ll be posted a
Laura, one of my best friends, turns 30 today. I was lucky enough to join her [& 5 of her other friends] on a weekend getaway to Calgary, a few weeks ago. I've known Laura for the majority of my life - we actually grew up together and ended up working together years later. She is one of the funniest women I know and I'm happy London's gets to call her auntie. We drove up and spent the afternoon shopping at Crossiron Mills, which I haven't personally been too since they originally opened in 2009. Of course, I spent more money on London than I did on myself. Even though I promised I wouldn't buy her anything
