Real Wedding Wednesday – Camille & Ryan

Camille and Ryan were married in September 2009.  I actually met Camille in a scrapbooking aisle at Walmart!   She was looking for a cardstock to match a ribbon, so that she could make her own invitations.   We got to talking and in a week or so, I met with her fiancé Ryan (who, by coincidence, I went to elementary and highschool with him and his brother). 

Camille & Ryan

Camille was a big DIY bride!  Everything needed to be and was perfect!  She made her on invitations, cardbox and designed her own wedding cake to be made by someone else.

They got married at a church in Ajax followed by a reception at Le Parc Conference and Banquet Center.  Their colours were pink, pink & more pink!

Camille and Ryan’s reception was DJ’ed by Ryan’s cousin DJ Navi – he had the entire dance floor packed the entire night! 

I’ll never forget when Camille danced with her dad to “My Girl” by the Temptations!  This is my favourite father/daughter dance song and everytime I hear this song, I still think of Camille dancing with her dad!  (It also reminds me of the classic movie, Father of the Bride, father/daughter scene!)

Real Wedding Wednesday – Sandra & Nick

Happy Real Wedding Wednesday!

Today’s featured wedding is Sandra and Nick.   Sandra and Nick hired Morganley for Month of Management services.  I first met Sandra when she was a bridesmaid in Karena & Stan’s wedding. 

Sandra is probably the most organized bride I’ve ever had!  She knew everything she wanted and made it happen and as a result their wedding was gorgeous!

Upon signing with Morganley, Sandra and Nick were told that the week prior to their wedding, their coordinator would be away at a conference with limited phone and email communication.  They were strangely calm about this!  That’s how cool this couple is!  We made sure that all details were completed before the conference.  Doing so made sure that Sandra and Nick had the down time to relax and not think about anything wedding related the week before!

During the time that their coordinator was at the conference, during email communication Sandra had told the coordinator – stop emailing me, go enjoy the beach, everything’s fine!

Sandra and Nick were married at a Catholic Church in Scarborough, ON.  This couple was so thankful and relieved for Morganley to be apart of their day that:

  • the groom thanked me when I sent him down the aisle
  • the groomsmen thanked me when I sent them down the aisle
  • the bridesmaids thanked me when I sent them down the aisle
  • the bride and her parents thanked me, followed by a huge hug from the bride
  • the bride and groom thanked me while coming up the aisle after being married
  • the bride and groom & bridal party along with family members thanked me non-stop throughout the entire wedding day

THAT is what makes me so happy to be a part of someone’s wedding day!  To get something so simple as a thank you, makes you know as a wedding coordinator you’ve done an amazing job at making their day special!

After the ceremony, the bridal party and family were off to Scarborough Golf & Country Club for photos with the amazingly talented and one of my favourite photographers: Leon Chai.

Cocktails and Reception took place Riviera Parque Banquet Convention Centre.  The staff here was so helpful, accommodating and organized!  I even got to sit down with the banquet manager at the end of the night for a little chat.  (How often does a wedding coordinator & banquet manager have time to do that??)  The room was so beautifully and simply decorated by Luxel Decor.  The centerpieces were designed by the bride and groom and created by Morganley’s Wedding Coordinators that day.  The bride and groom were speechless when they walked into the hall for the reveal!  It really was stunning!

The dinner was delicious, the bridal party put together some amazing speeches and the party rocked on into the wee hours of the night by Prodigy Entertainment.

Thank you to Morganley’s assistants, Megan, Janis & Diane and all of the fabulous vendors Sandra and Nick put together to create this perfect day.

Thank you, Sandra and Nick!

Kim is certifed by the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada Inc.  I am Kim.   I specialized in Event Management in college, where I obtained my Advanced Diploma in Hospitality and Tourism and then went back and got my post graduate diploma in Event Management.  I love planning events.  Big or small.   From birthday parties (surprise one’s too!), anniversaries, bridal and baby showers, bachelor parties and of course, weddings!   I love weddings!  It is the most important day of a couple’s new life together and I love to be there to make it special for them! 

Hiring a Wedding Planner can be the most important decision you make when planning a wedding.  You only get married once (hopefully), we attend weddings every weekend!  We know how it’s done, we know the proper etiquette, we’ve been trained to do this and we know how to save you money and time!

I am bold and confident.  I say what’s on my mind.   I love purple.  I love country music (don’t hold that against me).  I have a sarcastic sense of humor. 

I love helping couples plan their wedding because:

  • I love calming the nerves before they walk down the aisle
  • I love tearing up with them during their vows
  • I love seeing them so happy and in love the entire night
  • I love planning & organizing
  • I love seeing the dream become something real and amazing and personalized to that couple!
