Graydon Hall Manor – Open House

Took some time out of a hectic work schedule to attend Graydon Hall Manor‘s Open House today. Located uptown at 401 and 404 – this is a beautiful manor in a quiet residential area, with convenient access to 2 major highways. If you are into traditional elegance, then you’ll love Graydon Hall.

A peach and cream setting in the main room at Graydon Hall Manor.

Simple baby's breath centerpieces. Tip: with a beautiful backdrop like this, you can spend less on decor and flowers.

A round table setting in the main hall.

A 2-story chapel space inside (but the outside garden is beautiful for a summer wedding).

Chandelier in the main stairway.

And the view looking down, great place for dramatic portraits.

A few smaller rooms are available upstairs, along with a beautiful bridal suite.

One of the rooms upstairs, decorated for a small event or after-wedding brunch.

Another upstairs room at the manor.

A biscotti station is perfect for after-ceremony snacks or brunch receptions.

So end our tour of Graydon Hall Manor. Thanks for having us over.

I’ve been working a lot of late nights the past few months, so unfortunately the blog postings are coming a little slower now. But hopefully not for too long. Thanks for your patience and thanks for following this blog.

99 Sudbury TIFF party

This was a busy week! We had an awesome time checking out a new event space on Tuesday while celebrating the arrival of TIFF with Candice&Alison event management. 99 Sudbury has two modern event space for rent, The Lounge (seats 130 ppl, max 250), and The Glass Factory (max 750 indoors). In short: exposed bricks, high ceiling + open space = lots of possibilities.

Check out highlights of the night below.

White and black table setting contrasting with the blue uplights. Love it.


The Glass Factory.


Rows of wine glasses & a few candles line the shelf behind the “blue” bar, making this functional shelf a great backdrop.

This weekend we checked out the fall National Bridal Show, and dropped by the PMA PhotoExpo next door to try out some new lenses. Show highlights coming right up.
