{design palette} Professional decor & DIY savviness come together in this gorgeous rustic wedding 

In this wedding, which was a mix of DIY savvy and Fresh Look Design Event & Wedding Specialist's savvy, Krista & Dave celebrated their wedding in a gorgeous yet rustic wedding day that we adore. Ainsley Poirer, owner of Fresh Look Design Event & Wedding Specialist, says "It's great to put a bit/touch of yourself into your day [via DIY projects], but just remember; you have more important things to worry about on your wedding day than decorating your hall!" And that's where Ainsley and her team come in, picking up on the details left undone, the design concepts that bring it all together, and the planning that make it all happen at once, on your gorgeous wedding day!

{expert tips} Four keys to a killer dance party 

Expert tip by Olympic Sound Owner (website | review), Jasmyn Vickery-Lancinger

Olympic Sound Kitchener Waterloo Cambridge Wedding DJ Disc Jockey

1. List what you love and what you don't: Sit down with your soul mate and write down your favorite songs together - creating the "must-play list." Then write out what you absolutely do not want played - your "Don't you dare list"… Jasmyn recommends, "Once you've handed over the lists, leave the rest up to the pros. Try not to micromanage your DJ. That's why you hired us!" If your must-play list gets too long (more than 10 songs), create a third list. This can be more of a "wish list" of songs you'd like to be played only if your guests respond positively to them.

2. Pre-ceremony music sets the tone: Jasmyn recommends playing prelude music thirty minutes prior to your ceremony. "Many couples don’t think of this. With prelude music playing while guests walk in, it sets a mood - an ambiance. And it encourages socializing......

Melissa Hoogenraad's search for her wedding dress

Mystery dress story shows a community cares: the search for a Brockville bride’s missing wedding dress

Photo, left, "supplied photo"

FROM ANNE EDGAR PHOTOGRAPHY BLOG, MARCH 2015 | Last week I got an unusual request, from a Brockville photographer I knew about a decade ago.  

The call went kinda like this; "Hi Anne – it’s Mark Oliver calling, do you remember me?  I have a strange request – I know of a bride who is searching for her wedding dress.  Her wedding was in 2003, and she recently opened the previously sealed dry cleaners box containing what she thought was her dress – only to discover the the dress inside was NOT HER wedding dress.  This bride is searching for the owner of the dress in the box – in hopes that that true owner of this dress might have hers.  Can you take a look at a photo of the mystery dress & let me know if you might remember this dress from 2003?”

So kind of a ‘switched at birth’ scenario, only this one is a ‘switched at the dry cleaners‘ version.  Truthfully my first reaction was ‘are you kidding?’  There is NO WAY I will remember a dress from 2003.  But for some reason I don’t truly understand myself – I am a bit obsessive about keeping ALL the work I have photographed these past 25 years, and so it was an easy task to go and pull the entire collection of images photographed in 2003.  Really not having any expectation that I would find the ‘mystery dress’ in my archive, I dove in to many hours of opening image files.  And eventually – there it was.  Or at least there was a dress that could be, might be. Full story...
