While planning her own own wedding, Clionadh – the founder of The Sweet Treat Co. (a.k.a. The Queen of Candy) – became frustrated at the lack of original and unique ideas for the big day.  She wanted something that worked with the stylish theme, while indulging her guest’s affinity for fun!

In that moment, she decided that all Nearlyweds looking to make a statement, with unparalleled style, should have a place to go…and so The Sweet Treat Co. was born!! Now, Clionadh works with a carefully selected team, to turn dessert dreams into a sweet reality!

Completely and utterly obsessed with creating beautiful displays at home and in the garden, Clionadh approaches the Sweet Treat Company with the same passion and creative styling. She researches trends, event styling, and always looks for ways to add a bit of shimmer and sparkle.

Stationary isn’t just about invitations anymore. More and more couples are opting to have their Stationary Artists create gorgeous packages that include Save The Dates, Invitations, Ceremony Programs, Table Menus, Table Numbers, Escort Cards, Seating Charts, Favour Tags, Thank -You Cards, and sometimes even more. The most memorable pieces are custom designed and handmade with love; each matte perfectly aligned and every font chosen with care.

“I personalize every design to each, individual bride. I create timeless styles to suit each couple’s theme and budget using only the highest quality of paper, the most beautiful lace trims, elegant satin ribbons, and just the right amount of bling, crystal accents, and chic buckles.

Tess works closely with her brides to design not just an invitation, but unique pieces of art. “I’m often told that guests thought the invite was so beautiful that they just couldn’t throw them away after the wedding. Many of my pieces end up displayed in china cabinets and saved as a token of an memorable celebration.”

Whether you’re recently engaged, planning a bridal shower, or planning a birthday party or baptism, every picture-perfect celebration begins with an invitation, and Istilia Roché will make sure yours is unforgettable.

Eco-Chic Accessories | Custom-Designed Stationary :: Boston

———-

“The luminescent glow of a freshwater pearl, the crisp texture of a handmade paper, the way that a new journal feels in your hands – these are the things that I seek to preserve in my designs.”

- Aurora Palesca

 AuroraPalescaLogo

 

Luxury.

Hand-crafted.

Eco-conscious.

– All things that our WG event designers love, love, LOVE!​

AuroraPalesca Custom Jewelry Stationary Design Belgium 

Aurora Palesca Designs opened for business in the spring of 2009, the inevitable result of a life-long love affair with art and beauty. Designer Robyn Palescandolo, nicknamed Aurora Palesca, began selling her beaded jewelry to classmates when she was only 10 years old, and received her first paid calligraphy job at the age of 12. She has spent much of her life wandering the halls of art museums and galleries, and has traveled the world discovering unique perspectives. She is a self-taught artist and artisan of many trades, has exhibited her paintings in Boston area restaurants, and holds a degree in Art History from Boston University.

After 10 years of working in art-related fields, Aurora Palesca had fully realized that nothing could satisfy her artistic impulses better than creating simple, natural, and handcrafted goods that make everyday life a little more beautiful. In the spring of 2008, she decided to take the plunge. She left her full time job at a cutting-edge virtual tour company in order to pursue her dreams. Aurora Palesca is now a full-time mother, a full-time business owner, and a happily prolific creator of handmade luxuries.

AuroraPalescaHandmadeBridalJewelry

“One of our primary goals at Aurora Palesca Designs is to celebrate what is naturally beautiful. We like to think that what we are making adds something special to our world, rather than taking something away from it. Because of this, we feel a strong commitment to providing a fully sustainable and ethical service. So we choose materials not only for their beauty and superior quality, but also for their sensitivity to our world and the people who live in it.

“We also run a green studio focused on the beauty of craft rather than productivity and profit margins. Our philosophy is simple — respecting our world, our creations, and ourselves deepens the sense of pride that we feel in our work.”

Custom Designed Eco Stationary Belgium

Aurora Palesca’s jewelry and stationery has been described as eco-chic, understated, and elegant. She designs primarily in sterling silver, gemstones, and natural papers, but is constantly exploring new media. She runs a green studio, and uses ethical and environmentally friendly raw materials whenever possible (think: recycled metals, textiles, and fairly traded stones! so lovely!).

These stunning pieces are currently sold online, through private parties, and at various craft shows. Robyn also frequently donates items to charity auctions.

To have your very own Aurora Palesca custom-designed pieces accentuating your one-of-a-kind wedding day, send us a note about the dreams you have – and we can’t wait to watch them come to life!

The Original Wedding Soirée | 2014

{ the Grand Carnival }

A few weeks ago we helped to unveil Toronto’s finest Original Wedding Soirée at The Warehouse Event Venue — putting on a wedding show of epic proportions: the first intimate and interactive wedding showcase in Ontario.

This curated + themed experience promised to delight and inspire every bride, guest and industry visionary, so of course we had to send our team of WeddingGirls to experience the festivities!

———-

A Sunday afternoon with the WeddingGirls at The Original Wedding Soirée?

Uh, yes please!! It was a great experience, and our team had tons to say.

First off, the Soirée was meticulously planned, beautifully executed and well attended. We have nothing but all the respect in the world for the planning team behind this event! It was a gorgeous showcase of high-quality vendors, delicious eats, and unique entertainment – row after row of lovely things for the WeddingGirls to share with their followers.

We especially enjoyed meeting some incredible businesses owners with an awesome passion for what they do; it was brilliant chance for brides and industry professionals in the Toronto area to meet, greet, and network.

Original Wedding Soiree Toronto 1

We arrived at The Warehouse Event Venue, walked through lavishly-draped curtains, onto a red carpet reception. At once  we were surrounded by spectacles engaging every sense: refreshing tequila and grape cocktails,  a life-sized wedding dress dessert stand {complete with gorgeous bride inside doling out delicious cupcakes}, aerial acrobatic performances, sweet serenading by talented vocal group Cadence, ice cream made in front of our eyes with dry ice, a string ensemble providing ambiance while entertainers {think stilts, ballerinas and acrobats} roamed throughout… the list went on. This really wasn’t a show to miss!

Our very own Carmelina especially loved the gourmet snow cones. Just imagine your summer wedding guests cooling off with inventive, all-natural flavoured apple cider or lemon lavender essence!  Carm appreciated the incredible variety of vendors, and how well they all designed their booths to contribute to show’s theme and ambiance.

Original Wedding Soiree Toronto WeddingGirl.ca 7

Our in-house travel expert, Miss Vanessa, praised the show for having something for everyone – even the munchkins! A team from MelonHead were offering haircuts and stylish do’s for the little ones. Favourite show moment? watching four WeddingGirls turn to mush as a 2-year-old, sporting a tiny blue mohawk passed by – it was the cutest!

Vanessa also especially loved our photobooth fun. We had a blast posing with the goofy props and were warmly welcomed to snap multiple pictures and selfies. Oh, did we ever!

Cocolily Original Wedding Soiree WeddingGirl.ca

Our photo strip will always remind us of Soirée fun – so if you have a silly, photogenic guest list we highly suggest you consider having one of these interactive entertainment stations at your wedding reception!

Linda even managed to sneak a shot of Lisa’s mini make-up session. These ladies were having a great time, giving visitors touch-ups and chatting up other vendors. They embodied the elegant, friendly vibe of the show – a total delight!

Our resident Marketing Maven, Bianca, loved the custom invitation options at the Vibrance Designs booth. There was so much talent to take in and endless options to include personal details at every turn.

We ventured outside with our Social Media Rockstar, Miss Laura, to check out the options for lunch. WG Lifestyle Writer, Linda, is a huge foodie and especially loved the inclusion of food trucks. A wedding she attended last summer brought in a late night poutine truck, it was fantastic!  Kudos to the Soirée for helping support the urban food truck movement.

The Original Wedding Soiree earn a sparkling 5 stars from every one of the WeddingGirl’s in attendance. WG Planner Lisa raved that it was one of the best shows she’s ever attended; the variety and quality are what stood out to us and rocketed the Soirée to the top of our list for shows not miss next year!

We’re all looking forward to seeing what this fabulous team does in the future, and extend many thanks on behalf of all the WeddingGirls for inviting us.

Maria Miranda | Toronto Wedding Photography

Maria Miranda Photography Toronto Logo

We couldn’t be more excited to shine today’s vendor spotlight on an incredibly lovely and oh-so-talented Toronto lifestyle photographer with an exceptional eye for catching fleeting magical moments of being seriously in love with life.

Meet Fabulous Photographer:  Maria Miranda

We recently had the pleasure of discovering Maria Miranda Photography, learned a little bit more about her and now want to share her with all of you!

So what makes Maria stand out? Well, from a childhood in rural Chile to a life in the fast-paced urban jungle of Toronto, Maria has had the unique opportunity to live in and observe two very different worlds. This wonderfully unique perspective reveals itself in all the work she creates. Maria can view a scene from different angles, orchestrate creative shots, and catch the sweetest expressions her subjects didn’t even realize they were making.

Maria Miranda Photography Toronto Friendship

She was on track to become an English teacher back in Chile but then fate stepped in and Maria found herself in love and embarking on an international adventure. Once she arrived in Toronto, the adjustment wasn’t exactly easy; Maria often felt homesick and disconnected from her family and culture.

She then started photographing and documenting her life in Canada to share with the people she missed the most. It was the desire to stay connected and share stories that sparked her passion for photography. It was being in love with what she did that inspired her to change her entire life.

It wasn’t long before her love of her art grew and Maria started taking on more creative projects: capturing events for non-profit organizations, weddings and portraits all while still pursuing personal projects.

As a photographer Maria prefers to remain the observer.  She aims to capture the beauty and innocence of unaware,unguarded subjects. However brief a gesture or expression, Maria freezes it in a moment of still beauty. Her passion is to showcase subjects in their natural state: unaltered, genuine and alive.

Maria Miranda Photography Toronto Lifestyle

Maria Miranda Photography Toronto

Documenting romance is, without question, Maria’s favourite part along her journey.

She strongly believes in the values promoted by WG {=}: that Love is love and that love is never wrong. Like everyone on the WG team, Maria knows that being in love comes in all shapes, sizes, colours, and desires – and learning about individual love stories is what ignites her passion for waking up every morning.

Here at WeddingGirl we absolutely adore Maria’s romantic, whimsical, candid shooting style. Her portfolio speaks to her love of catching unexpected moments and her love and support of our WG {=} values makes us love her ever more.

World’s First International Wedding Planners Accepting Bitcoin

{ WG Blazes Global Wedding Trail

:: Now Accepting Bitcoin } 

The WeddingGirl team believes that, like digital currency,

falling in love and planning a wedding should be without borders

WeddingPlanningBitcoinBride

BREAKING NEWS:

The WeddingGirl.ca team announces it now accepts Bitcoin as a form of payment for local and international wedding planning services as well as retail purchases made through its online wedding marketplace.

WG BC logo

Blushing brides and wedding vendors from around the world can now work alongside a team of our event planning experts to turn lavish dreams in to magical memories, on a budget.  WeddingGirl.ca is the world’s first wedding planning service provider to accept Bitcoin payment as an alternative to costly credit card and money transfer options from international clients.

“We receive hundreds of international inquiries for wedding planning services as well as online marketplace purchases, “ states WeddingGirl.ca founder and CEO Mary Bratko. “Love has no borders. Planning your wedding shouldn’t either!”

We-Accept-XBT

Bitcoin is the most widely used virtual currency in the world.  “Central banks charge costly currency conversion fees which often dissuade brides from placing international orders,” states Bratko. The fees for an international Bitcoin transaction will only cost the bride a couple of cents to send any amount of money from anywhere in the world to anywhere in the world. “And working with us will save her thousands!”

 Pink Piggy Bank Bitcoin

Today’s bride, regardless of where in the world she lives, spends hundreds of hours planning her wedding online. Newly engaged couples are inundated with costs, fees, and hidden expenses associated with their upcoming nuptials that they mostly have never even considered. Bitcoin is the most logical solution for online payments. Not only does the WeddingGirl team help couples make smart spending choices with booking venues, décor, transportation, and flowers, now they can pay for international services and avoid additional currency exchange expenses.

It was a serendipitous conversation with a Toronto-based attorney, while Bratko, herself was overseas, that prompted the virtual expansion. Bratko says, “There are no coincidences. We are in the midst of launching the WeddingGirl blog in Europe and this Bitcoin system just fits so seamlessly into our expanding WG puzzle.”

To plan your international wedding with the WG team,

or to shop, without borders on the WG Marketplace,

Tales from the Wedding Planning Trenches | #WGx

Filed under: Author: Lisa Hardie,Bridal Blog,Real WG Weddings,Vendors,WGx — WeddingGirl @ 10:30 am

{ A Real-World Wedding Planning Experience }

By: Lisa Hardie

#WGx

I recently had the opportunity to join forces with Mary and start planning my first wedding. It was so great to meet Julia and Steve and I am so excited to start working with them. They’ve been madly in love for over eight years and it’s come time to make it official! With a stunning sparkler on her left hand, Julia became a bride and the two set out to plan their picture perfect Happily Ever After.

Ashley Brooke Designs Save The Date Toronto

Our first meeting with our happy couple was all I expected and more (although there always seems to be more details when you plan someone else’s wedding than when you plan your own!).

Hearing the details of the Who’s, What’s, and When’s was so exciting and putting together their preliminary Day-Of timeline really made everyone involved feel more at ease toward the end of our meeting. When deciding specific details on the floor plan, where to have their photos taken, and asking who in Toronto makes the best gluten-free wedding cake, you could tell our bride and groom felt that they were in good hands, having two experts to help make the final decisions!

Julie + Steve - wedding cake - two tier, 80 guests

Next up in their planning process? Contacting our final few vendors, confirming guest counts, arranging floor plans and all of the nitty gritty details including favour placement, escort card design, transportation logistics and things they hadn’t even thought of… like a kissing game! (nobody wants to listen to 150 guests clink glasses).

Toronto Hunt Club Sample Floor Plan

 

I am truly looking forward to this experience as all of these finer details are exactly what I have done in my previous role as a Training Specialist. It’s funny, actually, how so much of what I’ve done professionally up until this point has inadvertently prepared me for launching my dream career. Though nothing could have prepared me for how much is involved! It’s easy to see the glitz, glamour, photo shoots and all the fun stuff I’ve gotten to do as part of the #WGx team but there really is a lot more to it than meets the eye.

What aspiring wedding planners don’t see are the countless hours we spend using social media. Sure, this can seem like a lot of fun, but we’re not using it for updating our girlfriends on our daily lives or posting what we just made for dinner. Social media has become a tool that helps us run a viable business and I’ve learned to make careful consideration in what I post, who sees it, and the true purpose of what I’m doing online. I’m finding myself spending hours making sure my online presence is done just right…. on top of the time I’m spending doing research for my new couple! 

No one sees me staying up until 2:00am so that I can catch up on emails, respond to planning inquiries, answer vendor questions, and sift through hundreds of spam messages that somehow are already making their way into my inbox.

Behind the curtain, most don’t see our researching and staying on top of current and upcoming wedding trends; constantly writing blogs; researching destination weddings, doing all of our homework so that our couples don’t have to.

We are literally always working. Although, Mary warned us, when we came on board, that that’s what being in business for ourselves would look like.

You may have read her recent post on being an entrepreneur.

This is my life now.

Being a wedding planner, bridal lifestyle blogger, social media stylist, and entrepreneur all comes with a territory and Mary’s post really summed it up.

It’s scary, but it’s what I love, and it’s what I feel I was meant to do.

While planning is my passion, with the hopes of making more wedding dreams come true, I am just starting to get used to the lifestyle that comes with it.

I am always on-call; always on.

I have a husband and a toddler at home who will always take priority, but this is the career I’ve chosen and with that comes with the fact that sometimes I won’t be able to make that special birthday party or dinner because I have a commitment to my Couples. It’s just the way it will have to be at times. And I’m okay with that. (Good thing my husband and little boy are too!)

It may not be easy, but it’s so, so worth it. In true entrepreneurial spirit, I will go on. I am lucky enough to have a great team of women standing behind me, and an amazing mentor to help lead the way.

Mary Bratko WeddingGirl.ca WGx Toronto Wedding Planners

I can’t wait to watch Julia and Steve’s plans for “I Do!” unfold in the next few months. I look forward to learning more along the way and sharing my lessons from the wedding planning trenches with all of you.

Luxe Shopping Experience | Toronto | #WGx

{ all things luxe }

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely Jamie-Lee Braunack, Director of Luxe Shopping Experiences, warmly welcomed Bianca, Carm and Laura from WeddingGirl.ca out of the cold and into their media launch at the Four Seasons in Yorkville.

Luxe Shopping Experience Industry Event Toronto

As the three girls made their way up to the third floor, they could not help but stare at the sophisticated and grand interior design of the hotel, perfect for a luxe special event.

The doors of the Jasper Room opened and the girls were greeted with smiling faces and beautiful bling. There were five retailers from the Yorkville area in attendance, ready to show off what they had to offer brides and grooms on their big day. The vendor’s enthusiasm, passion, and level of excellence exuded from each booth and the girls were instantly drawn in.

Their first stop was to White Toronto. They gazed upon gorgeous wedding gowns any fashionista would be proud to wear and exquisite, custom bridal accessories.  Andrea Anastasiou, owner of White Toronto and Montreal, could not contain her excitement as she explained to the girls about her designer label dresses, one-of-a-kind jewellery, and stunning shoes.

Myra Kastner and Sandi Wilder from Knar Jewellery were sensational. Listening to the history of the company and getting to know more about diamonds was fascinating. The Hearts on Fire was the star of that evening, boasting a cut above the rest in the diamond world. Their magnificent custom pieces caused the girls to dream big and the sparkle of the diamonds were reflected in their wide eyes!

Meeting the talented and distinguished celebrity makeup artist and skin care specialist Victoria Radford was unbelievable. Carm jumped right onto her chair and was instantly transformed as Victoria instructed on the proper use of the eyebrow brushes and pencils.

The girls immediately noticed the enthusiasm she had for beauty and they were impressed with how willing she was to share her knowledge and educate others. Victoria currently runs her own makeup school in Toronto and has an incredible energy about her.

Treccani Milano, a luxury brand specializing in custom and ready to wear pieces, was the next stop for the girls. All their pieces are handmade in Italy from only the finest leather and materials. They design and create men’s and ladies shoes, handbags, golf bags, boots and dress shirts.

The last stop of the evening was Gotstyle Grooms. They are a full service shop for men. They offer an excellent selection of suits, tuxedoes and accessories. An on site tailor is there for any alteration needs and a Barbershop that offers both haircuts and hot shaves.

It was a delightful night, filled with delicious hors d’oeuvres, wine, awesome stuff, and incredible vendors! They really do bring the royal treatment and the three girls look forward to their next luxe shopping experience!
