Another gorgeous wedding on site from spring of this year... Thanks for posting! ... See MoreSee Less

Back in May I had the honour of planning & decorating a wedding for a very special couple at the beautiful Hockley Valley Resort. The ceremony was held in the outdoor garden tent and the reception was held in the 'oh so chic' Restaurant 85...I absolutely LOVE this venue! If you know me, you know how much I love TEAMWORK, and I was so lucky to work with my amazing team of vendors! allison clark | photography took these amazing shots, my old friend & colleague Ashish Sharma was the DJ, the talented Christine Edwards on make-up, Victor (dream team) Byenkya as MC, my favourite florist to collaborate with Indra Tan, and of course the amazing staff at Hockley! This wedding was intimate, elegant, modern, and stylish, truly outside the box, and I loved every minute of it!
