Pop Up Chapel August 11th, 2017………my sister got married!!!

Tanya List


I was already involved in this amazing pop up chapel organized by the ridiculously talented Lynzie Kent at Love By Lynzie.  I was asked to create a large foliage backdrop for the ceremony portion of this pop chapel held at The Drake Hotel in downtown Toronto.  Lynzie mentioned that they were opening up a few more spots for more couples to get married and asked if i knew anyone…..i immediately sent the details to my sister Kelly asking her she and her fiancé Curtis wanted to get married……..she emailed back in less than 5 minutes with a YES and that was that.  Kelly & Curtis got married at a pop up chapel for $600 (proceeds by the way going to SKETCH Canada, we raised just under $6000 for SKETCH, a charity that empowers street involved youth and youth living on the margins (ages 16-29) through the arts.)

There were soooooo many amazing vendors that came together to make this day happen:

Elynn & Joe July 8th, 2017

Tanya List

Everyone by now knows that i’m a bright colour lover….but……..as far as white and green/soft colour weddings go……..this is one of the best EVER!!!!  The mastermind behind the design was Shealyn from Shelly Angus Weddings & Event with the help of the brides mom Sandra::).  No detail was forgotten.  There was tons of texture, mixed with brass, gold, candles, plants, fabric, flowers, greens, you name it, we had it all:)

I never met Elynn until her actual wedding day.  I had no idea how sweet she would end up being….and how gorgeous!!!!  Please take a look at the many pics below and also the feature in Wedding Bells Magazine of this truly fabulous Muskoka wedding.

The green wedding

Tanya List

I’ve always wanted to create an all green wedding. Maddie let me do just that::))) ALL floral elements were green except for the few white astrantia in her floral crown.

This was the single windiest day i have EVER had setting up a wedding……  I almost blew off a ladder several times while decorating the chuppah (i included a few “windy” pics to prove my point).  I actually had to run inside twice because it started to downpour.  Lets just say i used about 100 zip tie’s to hold the greens on the chuppah……but in the end the sun came out and the outdoor ceremony was simply gorgeous set in the middle of the lake.

Please take a look at the pictures below taken by the lovely photographer Daring Wanderer Weddings.


ps Maddie had my favourite dress of the summer on::))

sarah & thomas a muskoka island wedding

Tanya List

Delivering a wedding to an island is never an easy task.  Lots of planning, organizing (re-organizing), loading/unloading happens before the final product ever comes together.  Bryn and her team at An Artistic Affair did it to perfection.  It is not a job i envy, i don’t think anyone ever can appreciate the amount of work that goes into orchestrating such an event and yet somehow Bryn made it all look easy and effortless.  Please take a peek at these fabulous pics of this relaxed boho island wedding in Muskoka:

Jennifer & Kevin were one of the first couples to book there wedding flowers with me after moving my life from the big city, back home to Muskoka.  In fact our first meeting, the studio was still under construction and there were boxes everywhere and we had to meet in my living room:)  They thankfully could see my love for arranging flowers through the mess of my house!!!

Please take a look at the beautiful pics taken by Jenny at One Worth Framing

Kelly & Morgan, Real life Muskoka Wedding: Saturday August 16th, 2014

Tanya List

Well…..all i’m going to say is that Kelly and Morgan just got married 5 days ago and already the very talented photographer Samantha Ong has pics ready!!! (never have i seen a photographer be so quick)!!!!

All details were designed by Kelly herself and never have i seen such team work from friends and family to make the day possible, it was truly incredible.  It was a ton of work considering that there wedding was held on an Island and everything had to be transported over by boat or barge.  Congrats Kelly and Morgan and thank you for letting me be a part of your wedding:)

Floral and bitch work..lol (i was Kelly’s assistant for the friday set up:)= Tanya List Design

a gorgeous summer wedding

Tanya List

What do i say….i love this couple Naoise & Greg.  They are the type of people who are gorgeous on the inside and out:)  So damn happy that i met them and i hope that we always keep in touch.  The wedding was held on a perfect summer day at Trillium Lake Resort here in Muskoka.  My hubby Ry and i stayed the day and into the night styling the wedding and even running the very “eventful” photo booth (filled with all my vintage finds).  While having dinner, we chatted with the SUPER nice and ridiculously talented Reid from When He Found Her.  (yup, same name as my daughter…perhaps why i loved him:)   Please check out all the gorgeousness:
