Whitetail Meadow Wedding
We are so fortunate to be a part of so many gorgeous events and this one is no exception. When I met Melanie and Ian, I knew they would be the perfect couple to work with Kristina. Their calm attitude and big smiles matched her personality to a tee! Whitetail Meadow has been on our “bucket list” of venues since the day it opened. To finally have the opportunity to work there with such an amazing couple was a dream!
From the moment you step foot on the property you know you’re in for a treat. This venue and the surrounding grounds scream romance! From the gorgeous pond, wooded areas and wrap around deck, each space makes you feel like you are truly in a fairytale. Melanie and Ian chose to have their ceremony on the front lawn with the pond as their backdrop. With the beauty of the area, we opted for gorgeous wood benches and a simple arch as the decor.
As if the gorgeous ceremony spot wasn’t enough to make your heart melt, the couple took a romantic canoe ride in the pond and got some beautiful photos. If this isn’t a fairytale scene, I don’t know what is!
Moving inside the venue we kept with the theme of ‘less is more’. With gorgeous wood harvest tables and mahogany Chiavari chairs provided with the venue, our decor was minimalistic. We opted for simple greenery lining the tables and white dishes and napkins. Our pop of colour came through with the menu cards and gold cutlery to complete the look.
For the head table, we re-purposed the arch florals onto the fireplace mantel and added lots of candles to create the perfect backdrop. Adding some simple greens and bridal party bouquets to the front of the table – voila! A clean, minimalistic look.
Melanie and Ian have a bit of a sweet tooth, so we didn’t hold back when it came to dessert! We decided to make this a focal point in the space by utilizing Whitetail Meadows gorgeous buffet table, a little doughnut wall, some flowers, and there you have it!
” Kristina went above and beyond to make our wedding planning smooth and easy. She was professional, offered great suggestions that can only come from experience in this industry and kept us on track. We used her services for the ‘Month of Coordination’, and I don’t know what we would have done without them. “
” My husband, who was initially skeptical about the investment, was the first to say how happy he was hiring Melanie Parent Events when we reminisced about the wedding the next day.
If you are on the fence about a wedding planner, JUST DO IT! It’s well worth being able to enjoy the wedding you’ve spent so much time on…and these ladies are the best! ”
