A Family Affair

We would like to apologize for being so far behind on blog up dates. This season has absolutely been amazing! We have had to hire on more full time staff to keep up with all the demands for Special Events. We have loved the individuality of each client. Each wedding has been so unique and personalized, this has allowed us to be so much more creative. We look forward to the 2012 wedding season and being apart of so many people's cherished memories.
This year also found us with the first member of our family to get married. Our son Benjamin married Elisha K. ( our on staff photographer ) on Oct. 1, 2011. Their wedding ceremony was held at Trillium United Church and their reception at the historic Galt Country Club.
I personally have a new respect and understanding for weddings like never before. I am dedicating this post to our talented family and all our dear friends in this industry that truly made this day magical for all of us. After the photos I am listing all our vendors, suppliers, family and friends that made this day possible. These people are the best of the best and we truly love and appreciate them all.
