Ainslie and Joshua’s clean lined, modern wedding at SMITH Restaurant in Winnipeg. Stone House Creative Provided:

I love working with couples who are planning their weddings from out-of-town. Ainslie and Joshua live in Edmonton, and are both busy professionals, which meant that they didn’t have a ton of time or focus to dedicate to the planning of their wedding. That suits me just fine - I love it when a couple gives me some basic direction (a colour palette, the style they like, etc) and then lets me run with it! In this case, Ainslie gave me full reign over the reception decor as long as everything fit within their pre-determined budget. The one difficulty we had was with the floor plan - given that it was at a restaurant, we had to figure out how best to use their space, tables, and chairs which aren’t typically used for a wedding setting. After a few iterations of the floor plan (thanks to the ladies at Soiree Event Planning, I didn’t have to do any of that work!), I was able to put together a complete design plan for the entire reception space, with a few favourite elements: clean lined black vases, modern black pillar candles, simple white florals with a few statement arrangements, and a hint of metallic glimmer.
