WPIC Office Table Design Challenge

One Table, Three Looks

One Table, Three Looks

We decided to have some fun and have a ‘WPIC Office Tables Design Challenge”.

The rules were simple:

  1. Each person had to use the same chairs, table, glass and silverware.
  2. Each person was assigned a coloured chair flower to build their table design around.
  3. A budget of $150 to make that vision come to life.

silverware

The wonderful Rohan Laylor, of Phat Dog Visuals, agreed to let us take over his gorgeous studio in Toronto for our design challenge and he documented the whole day for us.  We had so much fun.

Now we need you to choose the winner of our challenge!

So here are the designs, we won’t reveal who is behind each one until a winner has been decided.  Check out the designs and tell us in the comments which table design is your favourite.

WPIC alumni at Nordik Spa Nature

Mother Nature really helped us out providing great weather during July’s WPIC Alumni Regional Workshop in Ottawa, which started out with a warm welcome from the professional staff at Nordik Spa Nature. Armed with notepads and bathrobes, we got an exclusive tour of the facilities with Groups & Events Coordinator, Karine Laroque-Martineau. She showed us the ins and outs of the facilities and explained the various activities and events that the Nordik can accommodate. She also let us in on some of their future plans, which will be major game changers! Stay tuned.

As part of our site visit, we had the pleasure of touring the Nordik Lodge, which you (yes, you!) can rent for a sleepover. This is no cabin in the woods, folks. It’s a fully furnished, luxurious lodge that comfortably accommodates 14 during the day, and 12 overnight. Its amenities include a private sauna, wood-burning furnace, wrap-around balcony and much more. The Alpina Lodge, a little further up the hill, also boasts a hot tub and beautiful private space where we all immediately started staging a private ceremony/cocktail area/outdoor dance floor. Kudos to Stephanie and Kiley who trudged up the mountain with wedding legs! (picture “Nordik terasse”)

We got to experience the Nordik Lodge’s accommodations by having a makeup workshop in the boardroom/dining room, led by the talented and beautiful Melody Iafelice. Don’t let the topic mislead you. We weren’t getting our makeup done, although given Melody’s talents, that would have been a treat. Instead, she let us in on some of the secrets of the makeup artist’s world. It was incredibly helpful for us planners to get tidbits on what the ideal setup and timing is for these professionals, and to get ideas on the essential emergency kit (Melody’s Fab Five). But ultimately, those who benefit the most from this knowledge are the stars of the show: our couples. By wedding experts working together, openly and honestly, we heighten the standards of our industry. What’s good for the industry is good for me, and what’s good for me is good for the industry. Are you fed up of hearing me say that, yet? Perhaps. But it’s the truth.

Now, I leave you with images of this incredible facility, which was conceived and continues to develop with the most admirable philosophy. Be sure to keep track of their expansion; Winnipeg boasts their first jaunt with Thermëa by Nordik Spa Nature and, as a piece of great news for our GTA Alumni, Nordik’s third project is coming to you soon.

This One’s For The Girls -Styled Shoot by Tracey M Events

Submitted to us by WPIC Co-founder, Tracey Manailescu, of Tracey M Events

This styled shoot was previously featured on The Wedding Opera

“This styled shoot was a collaboration of some truly remarkable and talented people. Our goal was to showcase Toronto weddings and all that they encompass.

 Downtown Toronto is a mixture of cultures, customs, food, fashion and decor.  It’s exciting, romantic and lively. We tried to show this in our styled shoot with friendships from different backgrounds, blending a touch of heritage in a modern and whimsical way, and adding personal touches throughout.

The colors are bold, yet dreamy, and the overall feel was accomplished by being warm and trendy at the same time.”
