Richelle is the sweetest gal you’ll ever meet.

She’s one of the hardest working ones too…

…she’ll do anything….

…there is so much to love about this girl!

Yes, that’s Richelle…. she’s teaching her, now fiancé, to play leap frog…LOL

You see, she’s a gymnast and a dang good one too!

A little history….

Richelle has worked part time for Stage Right etc for about three years…

…but much to our dismay she took a gymnastic teachers job in Vancouver  last fall.

So the story goes like this….

Brandon went down to Vancouver to visit and they decided they would go up to Grouse Mountain to do some snowshoeing…..

…he had planned to propose at the top but when they got there there was a couple feeding birds…

…plus it was foggy…

…but I like the ‘bird story better’…

Richelle doesn’t really like birds so she got off the lift and was swinging her poles…

…needless to say she wasn’t met with enthusiasm…

Brandon, realizing it wouldn’t be the appropriate time to pop the question, aborted the mission!

They continued down the hill with Richelle singing

” Feed the Birds” from Mary Poppins…makes me laugh out loud 🙂

( wish I could insert the picture in my head )

Brandon and Richelle had packed themselves a lunch of…

…my mouth is watering typing this…. pulled pork sandwiches….yum!

They wandered through the village looking for an appropriate place to sit.

Found a great bench and ate their lunch…

…that’s when he…

…oh, wait for it…

got down on one knee and popped the question….say it with me…


I love it!

So our wonderful young lady is getting married on September 13th 2013 …

…we’re delighted to be able to be a part of this happy couples lives…

Bye for now…..








On Trend for 2014

April 17, 2013

As Wedding Designers one of our jobs is to keep a pulse on the upcoming trends.

With many couples planning their big day for 2014 we thought we’d do our best to help you out a bit with tips for ‘what’s in’.

No matter if you’re a ‘ keep with the trends ‘ type or…

a ‘ buck the trend’ type…

Stage Right etc is here to help you brand and bring your vision to life.

It seems that vintage and rustic have held on for several years now.

Seemingly this trend is continuing;

however, we are also seeing a strong trend towards  1920’s Glam formal .

…think Damask prints, colors, feathers, soft florals, lighting, crystals and the list goes on.

….If cupcakes were what you were thinking…

consider doing some unique elegant desserts in their place.

Fresh fruit in fancy teacups!


…fancy pastries…

Your guests will LOVE you!


Stationary can play such an important roll in creating the look and feel of your day.

Here at Stage Right etc we design your stationary, in house and specifically for you.

Below is a set that we had created for our clients Jenn and Tom.

Their style wasn’t 1920’s Glam but more vintage; however it gives you a taste of how we at Stage Right etc. design

‘specifically’ for you, making all your ‘day of’ stationary cohesive.


We love what we do and we hope it shows!

If you’ve enjoyed this post leave us a little note and let us know what you’d like to see in the future.

Have a wonderful day!



so I took a five minute break today… and found the most amazing site ever…

True confessions: I’m a bit of a shoe lover . I have just a ‘few’ pairs stashed away in my closet!

This is one of those ideas that begs the question,

” Why didn’t I think of that?”

Customizable shoes!!! I mean, super customizable!!!

I remembered with fondness a couple of our clients from past years who’d chosen

colourful shoes, moccasins and even fancy flip-flops for their day.

Well ladies…

here’s a totally new way to express yourselves and you’re going to LOVE love love it….

If you fancy stilettos, mid heel or flats,

they are all available in whichever style you like and there are hundreds to choose from!

Have fun and let us know what you like!
