 My very first wedding back in '08

 Kiss The Bride is 5 years old this month. I can not believe that half a decade has passed since starting this dream. It has been five years of changes, ups and downs (mostly ups) and I am so proud to have built this company from scratch, into what it is today. Of course, none of that happens without lots of support and help so to my family and friends I must give a lot of credit. As well as vendors in the industry, the relationships I have developed with them and last but not least my clients who have been fantastic and inspiring for five straight years! I am celebrating on Facebook all month long so be sure to stop by my page (link in the Facebook tab above) to see what is going on!

Another photo with clients from my first season. I am looking pretty young here!


PEI Beach Surf Shoot as seen on {Style Me Pretty Canada}

 What happens when a crew of vendors from Prince Edward Island come together on the hottest day of the 2012 summer? A fantastic collaboration of photos which is featured on Style Me Pretty Canada, showcasing the many talents and beauty of PEI!! I couldn't be more pleased to have been the coordinator for this shoot! Being the organizational part of this type of collaboration is never without a dull moment. Watching "the creatives" and their ideas come to life is always very fascinating!!

"Amy's" perfect hair and make up were the work of Michelle Cudmore of PEI Make Up Artist & Cheryl Delaney-Weeks respectively!  


 At times it is difficult to imagine when everything is laid out for a shoot how it will be portrayed through the camera. The one thing that I never have to worry about is that it will be done absolutely beautifully with the talented Rachel Peters of Rachel Peters Photography on the other side of the lens!

 The stunning shoot design & tablescape is the work of Modern Jane Design!


 Yes it's beer, root beer. Guests enjoyed this delicious drink courtesy of JJ Stewart's Root Beer on PEI.

 All of the creative and fun stationery was the artistic work of Kim Roach of Kim Roach Design!

 Guests also received these original hand crafted bracelets by Alisha Stephen of Love Charlie!

 Chef James Oja of The Big Orange Lunch Box cooked up some PEI eats for all!

 The mouth watering sweets including this to die for cake, orange and yellow macarons and so much more were all products of the talented Jennifer Prinz of City View Bakehouse!

 Flowers were generously donated by Alan Preston of Hearts & Flowers!
