Big News! : : Rebrand

Hey hey hey!

I hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start! I know I may sound like a HUGE liar when I say I really want to blog more but these days I have been swamped and overwhelmed with a TON of projects.

However, I want to take the time to spread some fantastic news. We are in the middle of a huge REBRAND! I . MEAN . HUGE! I don’t want to go into too many details as I want to keep something things a surprise but I am just filled with so much excitement. I can’t wait to launch and share all the fantastic details with you.

In the meantime we are working on so many fun projects including being a part of my town of residence’s 100 year celebration which will take place from spring 2014 to fall 2014. We will be participating on a show called La Petite Séduction for which I will be one of the 3 main organizers! OH MY WORD this is about as out of my comfort zone as it gets but I’m really up for the challenge.

I’m also planning on working with Ella Photography on another creative shoot much like the one we did for the Mariage Chic 2014 issue.

And so much more that I will continue to share as we move over to the launch of the New Brand!

So don’t give up on us just yet… I will continue to post until the big reveal and in the meantime here is another little teaser from our creative!

Photo shoot : : Winter fun by Jessica Goodsell Photography

Hello lovelies,

I’ve been a tad bit M.IA the last couple of weeks. I’ve been (once again) concentrating on marketing and such. You may have noticed that Aïcha has been off from the blogging world as well. And well, she should be since she’s getting married this weekend! Congrats to her!!!

Today I will make up for lost time sharing on the blog. Back in January I shared a sneak peek at Amy and Sathy’s photo shoot with the very talented Jessica Goodsell. As it’s a winter wonderland today in Montreal, I figured this was a pretty perfect time to share the session with you. They had such a great time that day and it was totally portrayed through these wonderful shots.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!

Wedding Planner : : i love my job

Hello again!

I know… I know… I’ve been M.I.A for a while. As you can see by my countdown calendar on your right, my main squeeze and I were away on a wonderful trip to Spain (more to come on that). It may seem as though I’ve been slacking off but in all honesty I’ve been swamped playing catchup! I’ve been battling the beast (my inbox), meeting and contacting vendors and meeting clients (whether new or existing). I’m busy, busy, busy. However, ask me if I would trade what I do. The answer to that is without a doubt: NO! I meet some pretty awesome people throughout this journey. Regardless if they are vendors, potential clients, people wanting to join the team or the person behind the counter at the coffee shop, it’s always a pleasure. It’s dealing with people that are wanting to express and share their love for one another with their family and friends. How can that be crappy?!?!

I didn’t sit as a little girl and dream about my perfect day or wanting to be a wedding planner like Jennifer Lopez’s role in the Wedding Planner. But after helping my best friend plan and design her wedding and watching the stress level go down when I was around because she could just trust that things would get done, that was the moment. That was the moment I thought “this is what I want to do. I want people to sit back a year, 5 year, 20 years later and say “that was the most incredible day of our lives. Thank goodness that Maxine was there to take care of it all.”

That being said… I spent my Sunday driving 2 hours to the Eastern Townships… Hanging out on a farm in the pouring rain…

The absolute gratification I feel when I see the look on the bride to be’s face when she walks into the perfect venue… PRICELESS!

Happy weekend!
