Words from the bride Kim: “I would say we met the modern way…online. Who knew that one late night, and a pint of Guinness later we would be here today. We connected on our love for travelling so we knew when we decided to get married it would be a destination wedding. We wanted something unique but wanted an easy travel for our guests. I wouldn’t say Mexico was unique but with the help of Fidan at Designed Dream we were able to make it just that.

Daniel asked Genevieve on a date, and they’ve been together ever since.

Is there anything better than a fresh garden of blush and mauve blooms? We certainly don’t think so! Karena and Henry’s whimsical garden wedding was seriously breathtaking. We are MAJOR fans of the organically-styled gold branches in the floral arrangements.

The hall décor was simply beautiful and it was surreal seeing our vision come to reality. The delicious food, crystal encrusted cake and a fabulous DJ, all combined made an outstanding wedding celebration.

For Fidan Ismayilova’s daughter’s first birthday, the sky was the limit. After all, I had survived 365 days of no sleep, 6 full weeks of full blown colic, along with eczema, reflux and a zillion other moments that challenged my every fiber. So when it came to throwing a party, a party I would THROW.
