Joelle Make Up

it's a pleasure to introduce you all to one of my absolute favourite wedding and event vendors, Joelle Cote. I've worked along side her for many years and she has offered nothing but the absolute best to our clients! Each and every one of them have raved about her services and generosity, she's a star in Montreal and I'm lucky to share so many clients with her! Often when I meet with my own I'm excited to share names of those they may want or need; people that I know, trust and love. Joelle is always at the top of my list.

Her site is getting it's make over (pun intended) and will be launched this month. To get ready for that I've decided to share a shoot we worked on together this summer prepping for it.

Joelle tackled a number of looks to share what she's capable of. In this teaser we have bridal looks, boudoir and maternity. We had a great team of models, and absolutely amazing hair stylists Meital and Kellie from The Only Chair.

Something extra I love, on top of everything, is that Joelle offers lashes and airbrush to all of her clients should they want, and brides can leave with a touch up kit. We all know touch ups are necessary after a few hours, and so often clients are left with nothing when the MUA has left. So smart!

I hope everyone gets the chance to experience an afternoon at Wonderblush in Montreal at some point, whether it be your next hair treatment or your next event! My dear ladies and I in the industry, Katrina Schaller and Tania Stratti of Deka Events were pampered by the owner Melanie Hachey to a bright face and hair stylings by her incredible expert Blanca.

I felt more than well taken care of the moment I walked in, we were greeted with a coffee of our choice from the in-house café and I was beside myself with the results. It's rare my face is on the blog but you'll see me in the last 4 images! The company is a labour of love, they've told us that it doesn't feel like work when you have this much fun.

The space is incredibly bright and beautifully decorated! I wanted to explore the area after to take photos of our results but there was no need to leave!

Never stop treating yourself if you can, and I highly recommend you let Wonderblush help you do that!

'Espresso Your Love'

I'm thrilled to announce the project that has been a true labour of our love for months. Myself and a brilliant team of creatives banded together to generate an unforgettable vision heading into 2017. Our beloved espresso inspired event takes shape in this entry.

Katrina Schaller of Deka Events speaks on it's concept: '‘Espresso Your Love’ captures the pure essence of a country themed brunch wedding with a boho and modern edge. Located in the heart of Hudson, Deka Events conjured up local entrepreneurs and artists to collaboratively showcase their talents while creating the epitome of the coffee lovers’ dream. Accented with bold and rich coffee coloured tones and complimented with copper elements throughout; it is reflected from the table top accessories, to the delectable desserts, all the way down to the thoughtfully designed stationery.'

Our locally renowned barista, Elizabeth Glazier of Mikko Espresso & Boutique writes, ‘Our mobile services will meet your next event with a coffee menu designed to suit your tastes. From corporate events to weddings or seasonal fairs, enjoy a range of hot and cold espresso beverages, served by our passionate baristas.'

Also proudly showcased: Handmade boutonnieres, Mr. & Mrs. coffee cozies, a wildly spirited florist, beauty team’s opus, down to the savvy craft beer brewers.  All this charm took place in the rustic atelier where many old and unique items are given vitality.
