A luxurious wedding, soft romantic details and a gorgeous couple, this wedding had it all. We planned Tera and Ahmad's entire wedding with mother of the bride Debra. With the couple living in Dubai, Debra hired us to bring it all together for them.

team to pull it altogether for her and our couple. And that vision started with Tera and Ahmad’s colour palette. They chose plum with white, a classic and clean pairing. White pinched linens, plum satin table runners and white satin chair covers dressed each reception guest table. The head table décor was nothing short of amazing. Madeline’s Premium Head Table Design featured white satin linens, swooping plum pintuck, plum satin chair covers and matching napkins wrapped in rhinestone rings. The head table was lined with plenty of fresh rose petals, flower buds

A clean and classic tone suited the vision our couple Lisa and Ryan had been dreaming of for their wedding day. Gorgeous flowers, exquisite linens, a modern reception location and tantalizing sweet treats, this wedding fulfilled every part of what their special day should be. Lisa and Ryan chose a wedding colour combination of ivory and plum, a romantic and elegant choice. Each guest table was dressed in ivory satin linens with plum overlays as well as ivory napkins, table runners and ivory chair covers to tie in their look. Their head table, which featured Madeline’s Premium Head Table Design, was nothing short of amazing. From ivory and plum linens to swooping organza to plum chair covers, this table had it all. Filled with fresh rose petals, bouquet glass holders and lots of votive candles, we brought forth the romance even more with our rhinestone wrapped cylinder vases and floating candles. And finally, accented by our crystal backdrop, our

Signature Spotlighting was placed all around the ballroom – enhancing the mood and making the entire ballroom simply stunning as guests first entered. Another fabulous and widely popular hit was the candy buffet Lisa and Ryan chose for their wedding favours. Guests who were looking for edible goodies were in for a fun surprise with the candy buffet and the amazing cupcakes the happy couple chose. Lisa and Ryan incorporated their monogram on the cake itself – a great detail! If you can’t decide between a wedding cake or cupcakes – this is the perfect way to go. Lisa had a gorgeous design already created for her wedding invitations and was looking to us to re-create that same look and feel. Madeline's was able to closely match the invite design and colours and carry the fun abstract floral design right through to all the reception stationery. The reverse side of each menu featured a fun fact guests could read about the newlyweds. What a great way to personalize the stationery. We also worked closely with Lisa to create table numbers that would fit silver frames she had for each table. Another gorgeous detail featured on each reception table.

Refined elegance set the tone for Lindsay and Andrew's wedding at The Fort Garry Hotel. Our couple wanted all the details looked after and so they came to the right place. Madeline's was on hand taking care of their linens, dĂŠcor and ensuring the day ran smoothly just for them. Lindsay and Andrew were such an amazing couple to work with. So thoughtful and appreciative right from the start. We knew we could create the perfect reception for them. With a sophisticated palette of ivory and plum, we designed a reception space filled with beautiful linens, an inviting guest table and a stunning head table that was sure to impress. Our day-of wedding coordinators were with Lindsay and Andrew on their special day, making sure everything was

absolutely perfect for them. From lighting candles to placing their own specialty designed stationery, we made sure everything was in its place before the couple saw the Crystal Ballroom for the first time. Each guest table was dressed in satin plum linens, plum overlays and ivory satin chair covers. Tall cylinder centerpieces with hydrangeas, white feathers and hanging crystals stood beautifully on each table. Complete with an ivory backdrop and spotlighting, their gorgeous head table was dressed in plum linens with swooping plum overlays and matching chair covers. Madeline's Premium Head Table Design featured tall and short votive candles, glassware and ivory rose petals along the top. The front of the table featured tall cylinder vases with floating candles and more fresh rose petals. Their fabulous ombre wedding cake (a Madeline's personal favorite) was placed directly in front of the head table where all the guests could see its amazing colour and detail. The romantic mood was set and our couple was more than thrilled. Reception The Fort Garry Hotel Flowers The Floral Fixx
