When I think about our Grand Opening I could have never imagined the way our space transformed, the love and support that came with every guest and the complete awe that I felt watching the whole thing unfold.
It was truly beyond my creative scope to have imagined this space, our amazing staff and the support that we received that night.
Thank you. To each and everyone of you who came to celebrate our Grand Opening in the Petrie Building. If you would have asked me 5 years ago, in our tiny first shop, if I imagined any of this I can truthfully say; only in my wildest dreams.
We are so grateful for everyone who has helped us get to this point, from contractors to friends and family who took the time out of their everyday lives to help out. Our amazing landlords and of course our staff who we truly couldn't do any of this without. All of the love and support we have received is so amazing.
Where do we even start? Planning our Grand Opening Party was so much fun... hectic at times, but so much fun nonetheless. We are so lucky to know so many talented people who helped make our event amazing! Each vendor brought their absolute best and every little detail brought our night to life. From our incredible, larger than life floral wall, the spot-on bar and food service, our DJ who kept us moving all night, the videographer and photographer who captured the entire night, to the hair and makeup and the models who made the fashion show one to remember!

The food was nothing short of amazing! So tasty and the presentation was elegant, as always!
Foodies Anonymous is by far one of our favourite catering companies in Guelph. They not only provide exceptional food AND service but they are innovative, passionate and seriously unique! I would have to say that their Califlower, Beer, Ceddar soup was by far my favourite with all the other food coming in a close second!
The set-up crew was so fast and the finished result was incredible! Our staff are nothing short of amazing!
From our little TMB family to you - thank you so much and we love you!
The team at Coccola blew my mind! I had given very little direction on how I wanted our models to look; nothing too "bridal", show me editorial and current. They did not disappoint. Our live-action hair and make-up backstage was nothing short of magical and Elissa and her team made the Gemini girls look runway fabulous.
We love these photographs - the ones that capture the little moments. Whether it is just a quick glance or a stolen kiss, these are the moments that give us the butterflies.
Alana at 1486 photography was an easy choice. She has an incredible eye and a presence that makes the fake smile fade away and become completely genuine. She spent the evening capturing the moments I will look back on for many MANY years!
Our fashion show was intended to show our style, and the ladies of Gemini models did just that! We stood at the end of that runway in amazement as our curated collection was revealed.
A big shoutout to Brooklyn, Val, Reily and Leanna for an exceptional show and for bringing all our gowns to life!
It would be impossible for us to pick a favourite look!
Here are some of our favourite photos from the night! Who doesn't love a good candid?
Big props to these guys from Brother's Brewing for fixing our keg! So glad that we are Petire Building neighbours, your place has certainly become one our favourite place to grab a pint!

A picture sure is worth a thousand words - would love to know what they were looking at!
We are truly over the moon, and so exhilarated as the future unfolds for TMB!
Thank you to everyone who drove from near and far to christen this space and celebrate our current success and the adventures yet to come! A very special shout out to Alicia, Taylor, Sierra, Adele, Melissa and Jay who make TMB the best place to work and for always putting our bride first.
Also, to Sarah Gostlin (honorary TMB staff) for helping the night go smoothly, and for her constant support in my dreams!
Here's to the future, may it always look so bright!
