Elegant Nautical Wedding

Fold a bold and beautiful colour combo of navy and white with the stunning background of The Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener and a bride’s love of everything nautical and you get a fun themed wedding that will take your breath away. This event was one for the ages.

Some of our favourite moments including the “first look”, the moment the father of the bride saw his daughter, the bride sneaking a cheesecake lollipop and of course the Hacienda beautifully decorated by Pink Poppi of Kitchener.

Redefining ‘Cheesecake’

Sometimes, even the most classic dishes need to be revisited. Sure, a traditional New York Style Cheesecake is a fine dessert option, but why not take the idea of a ‘Cheesecake’ and make it a little more… literal? Our chefs at AY use cheese wheels to build a cake made solely of cheese; at this particular 75th birthday party, the cake was made up of Papillon Noir Roquefort, Chabichou Chèvre, Telagio, and Prestige de Bourgogne, stacked on top of one another, with fresh berries, fruits, herbs and edible flowers surrounding them. We placed the cheesecake on a retired wine barrel, with a beautiful weeping amaranth flower arrangement towering overhead. As the famous gastronome Jean-Antheleme Brillat-Savarin once said, “A dinner which ends without cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye”.

What an adventure we have had over the last month!  Caitlin and team were off across Canada to organize a road show for one of our corporate clients held at Cineplex Theatres.  From venues in Ontario, Quebec, Montreal, Kingston, Ottawa, Winnipeg , Calgary and Vancouver hosting an event at Cineplex Theatres are great venue options and we have seen them all! Staff sit in comfortable theatre chairs with presentations run on the main screen and all eyes on the speakers, for undivided attention.  AY staff were on hand to ensure the event ran smoothly, all rentals and decor arrived on time and helped guests navigate through the event. On their down time, dog sledding in Montreal and shopping in Quebec and adventurous meals made up their spare time.  When it comes to Event Planning it truly is a passion for us and we love delivering more than what our clients expect!
