We started working with Kaitlin & Cory in October 2014 to plan for their July 2015 wedding day. They were looking for some decor help and some day of wedding coordination. Kaitlin was a bride who defiantly knew what she wanted, lemon centrepieces to go with her yellow and grey colour scheme and help on the day of and leading up to the big day. Over the course of the 8 months we created many centrepiece trials, we played with different vases, tested real and faux lemons, added flowers, decided on the perfect grey table runners, researched different table number ideas, etc. We brought all our findings to the Kaitlin at her venue so she could get a visual of it all put together. At the venue we decided on 2 varieties of centrepiece, a head table decor concept, ceremony backdrop, and some layout logistical solutions.
40 pounds of lemons later we created 2 masterpieces that Kaitlin & Cory absolutely loved! Their guest couldn’t stop raving about how fresh and fun the centrepieces were! They truly popped on the charcoal grey table runner and made for a beautiful colour scheme!
We made sure that the ceremony backdrop and floral arrangements were multi-purpose so when it came time to switch over the hall after the ceremony to prepare for the reception we did a little swap of our own. We moved the ceremony backdrop behind their sweetheart table, added a gorgeous gemstone chandelier and stationed the floral arrangement by their sweetheart table as well.
Kaitlin & Cory were so amazing to work with, we love when clients have an idea of what they want but leave the creation of it in our hands. Their easy-going, and fun-loving attitudes truly made for a great atmosphere leading up to their wedding and on their special day!
We wish you both a lifetime of happiness!
We also had some added entertainment during the ceremony, thank goodness for generators! Insert “through light & through darkness”

"I just wanted to thank you again for making our wedding so beautiful. You made my vision of the lemon centrepieces come to life, they were perfect! Thank you for being so easy going and being there whenever I was getting stressed with all the wedding planning. There were a few times where I questioned whether I needed a day of coordinator but the day after I said several times "I'm so glad I hired Melanie to be there" , everything just went so smoothly because of you! I also heard a few days ago that you had to deal with finding stands for the ceremony flowers last minute, I had no idea and I'm glad I had you there to deal with it! I had several people tell me how great you were.
I would recommend ITM events to anyone!!"

"I was lucky enough to work alongside Melanie during a wedding this summer (2015). I was so impressed by all the attention to detail that had gone into K&C's wedding! As a wedding photographer, I usually always end up helping coordinate the day, but this time - I really didn't have to! Everything was done, and done so well! Melanie was on site the day before, and of course on the day of making sure everything ran smoothly. I can't say enough good things about them, and I have recommended ITM events to my 2016 brides! :)"
