Spring Wedding Flowers

Apr 16, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   blog, wedding  //  No Comments

Spring is finally in the air! We had the pleasure of providing wedding flowers for Duckhee & Gwan Woong, who got married in a charming church in North York. The bride wanted to have a spring theme so we incorporated yellow, orange and green for the flower colors. It really got us into the spring mood and the wedding season ahead!

Old Hollywood Theme Bridal Shower

Apr 6, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   blog, party, wedding  //  No Comments

I’ve been MIA for a while on the blog front. Please forgive me but I was actually quite busy due to my own wedding last month! With help from wonderful staff and friends, we created a one of a kind wedding that was absolutely perfect. Photos are coming soon so stay tuned~

In the meantime, I wanted to share photos from a recent bridal shower that we decorated. It was held at the bride’s friend’s house in Toronto. The theme was “Old Hollywood” so we chose the color scheme as black, white and red. We focused the decor on the main dining table, as it was the focal point of the room, and recreated the glam with crystals, glitter, and flowers.

To add a unique touch, we printed photos of guests and the bride and groom to be in a old film motif and hung them as ornaments on the centerpiece. We also made custom signs with the bride and groom’s initials to give it a personal effect.

Enjoy the photos below! If you are planning a party or an event, we’d love to help make it extra special so contact us for more details!


Wedding: Barb & Duncan

Feb 27, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   blog, wedding  //  No Comments

In the cold winters of January in Toronto, Barb and Duncan, one of the sweetest and down to earth couples I’ve ever met, celebrated their marriage with an intimate wedding with loved ones. As you can see in the picture, Barb was pregnant – and with twin boys! She made the cutest bride with her baby bump and the dress looked absolutely stunning on her.

Barb and Duncan were back and forth from San Francisco to Toronto so Nspired Events had the pleasure of planning their wedding as well as coordinating the big day. We also provided the lovely wedding gown and accessories for the bride and the tea length tulle dress worn by the junior bridesmaid (and Barb’s youngest daughter).

Congratulations again to Barb and Duncan! We wish them the best in San Francisco as they wait for their twins to arrive.

First Birthday: Noelle

Feb 13, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   birthday, blog  //  No Comments

Last weekend, we celebrated the first birthday for Noelle at Sariwon Korean Restaurant in North York! We decorated with an elegant white and pink theme for baby Noelle.

Instead of the traditional balloon pillars or balloon bouquets that we typically do for Korean First Birthday decor, we used paper lanterns because Noelle’s parents wanted to do things a bit different. And we’re glad they did because it turned out great! There are a lot of alternative options if you don’t fancy balloon decor – i.e. paper lanterns, tissue pom poms, paper fans, paper flowers, etc! At Nspired Events, we like to put our personal touch into the design by custom making most of the decor items. So sky’s the limit for possibilities!

Enjoy the photos from Noelle’s birthday bash below. You can also check out other birthday decor on our flickr page.

100 Day Baby Photography

Jan 17, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   blog, photography  //  No Comments

In Korean culture, the first 100 days have a significant representation for parents and a newborn baby. It’s a tradition that was recognized a long, long time ago and one that is still celebrated today. Historically, the survival rate of a newborn before the first 100 days was rare, so when a baby reaches 100 days old, there was a big celebration to commemorate the moment.

Today, many parents are still celebrating the first 100 days either with a big party with family and friends, or taking professional photos of the baby to remember the special moment in the baby’s life.

At Nspired Events, we have a new baby photography package for kids of all ages. Our baby photography packages start at $200 and up. Having friends with kids and watching my nieces and nephews, I realize that kids really do grow up in a blink of an eye! So don’t miss out your opportunity to capture their precious moments. Contact us for more details! In the meantime, enjoy these special 100 Day photography of our favorite model – Soo Hyun!

First Birthday: Woo Jin

Jan 15, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   birthday, blog  //  No Comments

Last weekend, we celebrated Woo Jin’s first birthday at Momiji Japanese Restaurant in North York. Woo Jin’s parents didn’t want the typical blue or green theme for boys and so we chose chocolate brown and gold colors for the little guy. They also didn’t want the decor to be too cutesy or baby-like, so we tried to tone it down and go for a more classic look. And we absolutely loved it!

Check out the photos below and let us know what you think! All decor items are custom made by yours truly. Contact us if you want to learn more about our first birthday decor services.

Wedding: Jihae + Tae

Jan 11, 2013   //   by NSPIRED   //   blog, photography, wedding  //  No Comments

This is the second time that Jihae and Tae have graced our blog. A few months ago, they took pre-wedding photos with us (check it out here). Now they are back with their wedding day photos!

Jihae and Tae are the sweetest couple ever. Compared to a shy and reserved Jihae, Tae is a burst of energy and quite funny as well. We took their wedding day photos near the lake in Mississauga and their ceremony / reception was held at the Roma’s Hospitality Centre. One memorable event was when Tae surprised Jihae with a romantic serenade during their reception! Very sweet.

Enjoy the photos below!
