Mike + Kiara - October 10th, 2015
Mike and Kiara are an amazing couple. When the bride and groom asked me to make a bow tie and pocket square for the groom I was honoured. The couple also asked my husband and I to help style Mike for the big day. It started with Kiara showing me pictures of her wedding dress and us having a discussion on the look and feel of her wedding while on a double date at a Raptors games. Immediately when I saw her dress, I guessed how she would style her hair and makeup...a vintage boho beauty!!! Next, my husband...
Sean + Christina - September 5th, 2015
Sean and Christina are a match made in heaven. They had a simply modern wedding with hints of vintage details at the Estates of Sunnybrook and their theme and colours were expressed throughout the venue with their florals.
Sean made sure he was dressed to the nines with his custom S&C cufflinks, Hugo Boss oxford, suspenders, light grey suit and of course a Boarded Hall bow tie.
The groomsmen looked ever so dashing with their grey slacks (a darker shade of grey then Sean's suit), suspenders, and the grey polyblend bow ties I had the pleasure of making for them....
Gideon + Alice - July 19th, 2015
I had the pleasure of accessorizing 7 groomsmen (including the groom) and 3 ring bearers for Gideon and Alice's big day. Their venue could not be more beautiful and fitting for their rustic engagement. The bride and groom gave me free reign to find a fabric that would fit their colour palette and theme.
We ended up selecting a fabric that had blush, white and grey to compliment the groomsmen's trousers and bring out the main blush colour the bride wanted to express throughout the wedding. Sometimes the tipping of the tie can be overlooked. I found...
Keith + Nicole - January 22, 2015
Imagine being married on open sea waters in the Atlantic ocean, on a beautiful bright sunny day, with a captain as your officiant...Well, my father (Keith), experienced this beautiful setting when he married Nicole earlier this year, and they asked me to prepare all the bow ties for the bridal party. I suspect they "hired" me mainly because of my talents but also because I'm the daughter of the groom, but I know they love my work and want to help me succeed in any way possible.
I was tasked with preparing 4 bow ties; all bow ties were done in peau...
Andre + Marsha - August 30th, 2014
Do you remember the handsome chap below? Well he tied the knot with his University sweetheart back in August 2014 and I was honoured that he asked me to make him my first peau du soie bow tie for his nuptials.
Andre had a James Bond vibe for their 'modern elegance' themed wedding with a navy blue suit with black lapels. Some people believe combining navy and black to be a fashion faux pas, but I say to hell with those naysayers. If done properly, navy and black can look...
