A Romantic NYE Wedding

I had the immense pleasure of working with the two most amazing people to plan a one of a kind celebration. What better way to ring in the new year than with a celebration of love! Jenna + Sarangan rang in the new year with 260 of their favourite humans and threw quite the party.

We designed this wedding to reflect the style of wedding J+S wanted to have, a party to remember! Simplistic decor elements featuring the stunning FC crystal chandeliers, hanging greenery installations and lots of candles created a romantic atmosphere.

The ceremony started at 8:00PM followed by a cocktail reception. Guests had the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of food and specialtly cocktails before The St. Royals took the party to the next level. As midnight approached, our team handed out a variety of NYE hats, necklaces, glasses you name it, we had it! The clock struck midnight and the entire crowd went wild, it was electric.

HELLO FROM JAZ

I grew up in a small town where everyone knows everyone, and most likely their entire family too. The town is known for it's OHL hockey team, The Owen Sound Attack, the Bruce Trail and the crystal clear water of Georgian Bay. It’s a hidden gem to shut off and refuel with waterfalls, beaches and lush forest areas all around.

My journey in the event industry began 9 years ago. In 2010, I moved to Sydney, Australia to pursue my dreams of becoming an event planner. On my very first day in Sydney, I met a French Canadian on the beach and married him 5 years later. He is a passionate entrepreneur and owns a cafe in the Distillery District, Arvo Coffee, inspired by our 4 years spent in the land down unda. The second love of my life is a furry feline that loves a good cuddle and to constantly walk across my computer keyboard, Oscar. He is seriously the best.

I knew right away that I wanted to work in the wedding industry but, I needed to define the why. There are hundreds of amazing wedding planners, what could I possibly bring to the industry? When we moved back to Canada, the “why” became clear and ATJ was born. I launched ATJ as a creative expression of an inward desire to bring back what a wedding is truly about, a celebration of love. My goal is to bring back the heartbeat of the celebration without the unnecessary frills. The approach to design revolves around the concept that planning a wedding is like hosting all your favourite people in your dining room. It’s intimate, exciting, involves good wine and an electric atmosphere.
Now, let’s bring that living room vibe into an external space and make it come alive.

When I’m not planning events, I love to explore new galleries, cafes, travel and freelance as a floral designer. I am a creative at heart and love all things in the vast realm of the creative industry. Someone once told me, “we were created to be creative” and that has resounded with me ever since I can remember.

I am truly grateful for the amazing clients that have allowed us to be apart of their celebration. 2019 is our biggest year yet and I am SO excited to work with the most amazing humans .

Sarah + Tim

Sarah + Tim are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet. They are both generous, kindhearted and have a contagious love for life. Sarah’s attention to detail while planning her wedding was such a treat. Every element of their day reflected their love. Unique features included the coffee bar (they LOVE coffee), handmade favours, special dessert stations and many more details you will see below.


S+T’s intimate wedding took place in May at the Alton Mill Arts Centre. I love this space. It allows for an outdoor tent style wedding with all the perks of an existing venue. The ceremony was hosted in the main gallery space, cocktail hour in the lower level and dinner under a beautiful tent in the Annex. Guests were encouraged to explore the venue with many local artisans work on display.

Earthtone colours were selected to highlight the existing charm of the space. Snowberry Botanicals was the perfect florist for the occasion. The organic aesthetic featuring potted plants, olive sprigs, lavender and lush bouquets were the highlights of her work. Soft candlelight and edison lighting created an intimate dining experience under the tent. Following dinner guests were invited back into the venue to dance the night away.

A beautiful celebration.

Chantelle & Jacob's Romantic Estate Wedding

Oh my heart, this wedding is one that I will forever cherish. 
It's not everyday that you meet people like Chantelle and Jacob. Loving, compassionate, kind and all kinds of wonderful. When I met with them to begin planning their wedding, I knew it was going to be an extra special occasion. Why? Because they desired to celebrate their love first and foremost and the details would follow. 

They chose to have an intimate wedding of 110 guests on a family property in Chatsworth, ON. A beautiful fall wedding would highlight the natural beauty of the property as the tress would be changing colour and the sun would set beautifully across the harvested grounds. 

Every detail was thoughtfully planned to be unique and memorable to C&J.  Intentional simplicity was key into designing their day. The reception featured the BEST grand entrances, heartwarming speeches, a surprise gift for Jaxson, a musical performance by the father of the bride, dancing and fireworks. The atmosphere was electric. 

 My favourite part of all their personal touches was the ceremony. They had their closest friend of 15 + years marry them. It was full of humour and raw emotion as C&J declared their personal vows to each other and their son, Jaxson. There wasn’t a dry eye in site..including mine!

A Surprise Proposal

I love a good surprise, don't you?! My dear friend Lydia asked if I would like to be involved in a very unique event, a surprise proposal! Naturally, I was over the moon to design and be apart of this special moment. The idea was to plan a mock shoot at the place where Shane and Sarah had originally met, the beautiful pine forrest in Guelph, ON.  Sarah and Shane agreed to be our models and the plan was set in motion! As you will see from the photos, Sarah was completely surprised and said "YES" to marrying the love of her life.
Congrats Sarah & Shane!

Chris & Sarah Mad in Love

When I first met with Chris and Sarah, they had a venue booked, a custom top hat on the way and a dream of throwing an Alice in Wonderland inspired wedding with a mad hatter twist. C&S wanted more than your typical wedding, they wanted a celebration of love and an experience for their guests. The journey of planning, designing and crafting a concept into a real life wonderland lasted 14 months.

As I watched their first look, I couldn't help but shed a few tears of happiness. Two individuals head over heels in love and fully living in the moment on their wedding day, I'm not sure there is anything better than that. 

A HUGE shout out to the amazing team of vendors who brought various parts of the vision to life
