February 21 2009

On February 21st we got the chance to return to one of the most beautiful and romantic venues in our area, La Hacienda Sarria. Upon entering this place you feel immediately transported to somewhere in Europe, the architecture and attention to detail is awe inspiring. That being said La Hacienda lends itself wonderfully to a romantic event like a wedding. From our first meeting with the Bride (Jenn Mullin), we knew that the event would be spectacular. The centrepieces consisting of deep red roses adorned with crystals, the chair covers in ivory with glittering buckles on a black sash as well as a ceiling decorated with chandeliers and fabric draping all came together to produce a gorgeous setting. We wish Jenn and Greg all the very best.

Weddings for February 14 2009

This past weekend saw two really beautiful weddings. We were given our first opportunity to decorate the Art Gallery of Hamilton, a wonderful venue. We would like to thank Jodie Faulman and the staff of AGH for their service and attention to detail. For this wedding we got a chance to test our new lighting effects and were really excited with the outcome. We will now be able to offer couples lighting that reflects their style. We can now design patterns or text to be projected on any flat surface for any event.
Our second wedding for the weekend took place at the Polish Club of Cambridge. Love was in the air for this traditional valentine wedding. The decor featured Hearts and Roses and a romantic colour scheme of red and black. We would like to thank the catering staff of Joe Leite Catering Co. for their attention to detail in coordinating their settings to match our decor.

We wish all the best to our wonderful couples that were married on February 14th.

New blog, new address, new direction, new beginning.

After 15 years of being in one place you become attached. 626 King Street East has become somewhat of a second home, with that comes many fond memories. We will always cherish the many couples that spent time with us here and put their special day in our hands. Although we will miss 626, we are excited to announce that as of April the 1st 2009 we will be in a new location at 614 King Street East. Our new location is better suited to providing you with the type of experience that we at Special Events like to provide. A few of the excitng things that we will be showcasing in our new showroom are; new lighting effects, new fabrics, new chair covers and many new and original designs created by Special Events. We look forward to the new direction our new home will take us. We have taken a few photos of our current showroom in memory of the past, looking forward to the future.
