Leanne and Adam
Fall Qualico Family Centre Wedding
Rain or shine, the show must go on! That was Leanne and Adam’s attitude at their outdoor Qualico Family Centre wedding this past Fall. Even though the weather was not on our side; these two were determined to get married in the beautiful outdoor Leo Mol Sculpture Garden, so my team and I made it happen!
Leanne and Adam got married under grey skies and drizzling rain, but you would never know it by the smile on their faces! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a couple embrace the rain like these two, nothing but happiness and laughter.
Following the ceremony, we moved indoors and enjoyed a gorgeous cocktail hour and reception at the Qualico Family Centre. The whole space was simple and beautifully accented with the couples touches. My favourite part was the Oh Doughnuts dessert bar. Adam had proposed to Leanne while eating their favourite treats, so it only seemed fitting we incorporate them into the day.
Having a planner on your day wedding is extremely valuable. As the planner we were the one the vendors could contact to discuss if we we’re moving the ceremony indoors or not. We had previously discussed these options with Leanne and Adam and confirmed exactly what they wanted. So on the day we already knew the answers and we didn’t have to bother them knowing that we had everything in place a head of time!
Here is what Leanne and Adam had to say about working with me and my team:
“My wife and I used Melanie for our Day Of wedding coordination. Don’t let the “Day Of” title fool you…Melanie helps out with so much along the way. From coordinating all of our vendors to even bringing spare umbrellas to our wedding in case it rained, Melanie went above and beyond our expectations.
There were many things we didn’t thinking of that Melanie brought to our attention that helped shape the program of our day. Every time we met with her she brought us a sense of relief to us that our day was going to go smoothly. If you want to plan your own wedding, but need some extra help I would definitely recommend Melanie’s Day Of services!”
We appreciate these kind words and couldn’t be happier with how the day turned out, these two deserved nothing but the best!
