Meet The Winner of our $10K French Tea Party

She came, she saw, she conquered! On April 4, 2017, one lucky bride-to-be won a complete remake of the $10,000 French Tea Party Giveaway featured in the Winter/Spring 2017 issue of Toronto’s Elegant Wedding Magazine and it was fabulous. The moment winner Ashley Marie Bloomfield was introduced to the contest at our Canada’s Bridal Show booth on January 7, she knew she HAD to enter.

Produced by Valencienne Bridal Design and The White Book Company, the extravagant French Tea Party started with pampering by Ladylyn Gool, Dawna Boot Makeup and Elsa Corsi for bride Ashley and 10 friends. Inside the Colette Grand Café, delicate florals by Living Fresh covered the tablescape; vintage props and furniture by Warehouse 84 set the scene; custom ferris wheel invites, menus, place cards and thank you notes by Ferris Wheel Press provided the perfect keepsake; and a scrumptious three-tier cake by Truffle Cake & Pastry was served. As for the elegant bridal shower dress, Kim from Valencienne Bridal Design custom-made it to fit Ashley. There to superbly capture it all was Mango Studios.

Congrats again to the incredibly talented team of vendors who put together this one-of-a-kind contest!
