Brides adore Fresh Look Design for their breathtaking décor, ‘above and beyond’ mantra and infectious personalities
Once we saw what wedding designer, Ainsley Poirier, and her team could do, we knew we had to share our love for the beautiful possibilities that come from choosing Fresh Look Design. From FLD’s philosophy that every couple’s wedding should be unique to their personal style, to a company-wide commitment to bringing fresh, innovative and creative ideas to every single couple they meet, FLD’s popularity is growing with each wedding they help design.
One bride told us, “People NEED to know about Fresh Look Design… it should not be a secret!” A photographer who has worked on a wedding with FLD was so blown away by their work that she says that she can’t imagine using another designer for her own wedding. Here’s more on this fabulous design guru…
Their fabulous design team
Ainsley, owner and Lead Designer, is the face of Fresh Look Design, “I bring the couples vision to life and make sure that it is followed through by the rest of the team on the day of the special event.” Ainsley is proud that her team has grown over the last decade from a one (wo)man shop to a team of 10. Ainsley’s original vision remains the ultimate goal of FLD today…to surprise their clients with creativity and passion for new and innovative styles- for any event, theme or design.
Her team really is just as passionate about fabulous weddings! Jessie Simoes, a designer at FLD, says “I always had a passion for design and décor. So my mother encouraged me to pursue it.” After studying English and Religion at Wilfred Laurier, Jessie enrolled in Conestoga College to help enrich her creative outlet. “While at school I loved staging and styling and knew weddings would be an incredible way to pursue what I loved! So I reached out to Ainsley and luckily enough the timing was perfect as she was looking to grow her company and bring on another creative member.”
Tonia Coletta hired FLD for her wedding and says her wedding décor was absolutely flawless:
“I loved their ability to think outside the box and provide unique options for our wedding. We wanted a classic, yet very unique décor theme and Fresh Look Design provided unique and one of a kind design and décor options. They collaborated with us and offered realistic solutions when I had high in the sky ideas or wanted a specific look. They had unique pieces in their closet (from lighting to tables to candles), but were able to create specific pieces or décor options based on the look I wanted. They were incredibly flexible and creative.”
For the FLD team, planning and designing weddings is a dream come true, “We love the satisfaction of a job well done. Being able to work with couples to bring their unique personality and vision to life is an experience we never tire of! We have the opportunity to work with many different styles and themes which makes our jobs truly exciting and keeps the creative juices flowing.”
Jeremy Ellis agrees, adding, “I honestly can’t state the calmness I felt moments after Ainsley arrived to set up the hall. I knew she was a professional, not only with her attitude but with the detail she puts into her decorating skills.”
“My favorite memory would be the personal service I felt I received, the quickness in answering any ideas or emails we would send her. The fact that she did a walk through of the hall before the guests arrived, shows the professionalism and dedication to her customers that might be lacking in other businesses.”
One of our favourite things about FLD is their commitment to always bringing in fresh, creative innovative ideas to all of their couples. “We use creativity and innovation to transform any space and we try to see opportunity where many don’t… with the vast amount of inventory and additions of unique pieces we are able to add the key pieces to any space for any theme!”
But it’s also their fun and flexible personalities that has couples raving about FLD. Ainsley told The Ring, “We pride ourselves on the memorable relationships we build with our clients and treat every event as if it were our own. We are a family business and want our clients to feel like they are a part of the family.”
Jill Ross-Melanson used Fresh Look Design for her wedding at The Tannery… “The options were endless, they were able to create everything I was looking for. One of the most talked about things at our wedding was the gorgeous décor, it was simple yet elegant, they knew exactly what I wanted and created it all for our day. They were creative, friendly and easy to work with.”

Ainsley adds that, since she uses their inventory sensibly and creatively, she is able to avoid paying large costs and in turn, passes the savings along to each couple. “This helps with the smaller budgets and for the larger budgets, I have great sources to allow for creativity to blend well.”
Groom Jeremy Ellis told The Ring, “We felt the prices were very fair and ended up being exactly what Ainsley quoted! There were even some extras she included that I know didn’t end up on the bill. It was a great day for my wife and I.”
