I DON’T EVEN THINK THERE ARE WORDS THAT I COULD POSSIBLY STRING TOGETHER TO EXPRESS ALL OF THE LOVE I FEEL FOR THE WEDDING INSPIRATION I’M ABOUT TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY!
There are very few things in this world that speak to my heart the way that flowers in the spring do. Especially the sweet smell of lilacs, which was the jumping point for an entire evening designed as a way to inspire the soft feminine bride. Working together with some of my absolute favourite local Ontario vendors from Elora, Guelph, Niagara, and Cambridge, we executed what is truly a June bride’s dream!
SOMETHING THAT I’VE MADE A POINT OF DOING IN THE LAST FEW YEARS IS ALWAYS USING REAL COUPLES AS MODELS FOR STYLED SHOOTS
You might remember our couple, Mira and Dane, from this apple orchard engagement session back in 2017! They are newlyweds who tied the knot last summer and had just welcomed a brand new puppy into their family! One of my absolute favourite things about photographing them was that it became far more about them reminiscing on their own wedding day and their first year of marriage than just acting as a portfolio piece. On top of that, their little chocolate lab, Eddie, completely stole the show while he spent the entire evening running around in the open fields of Scotsdale Farm on his first real trip outside of the city!
We styled Mira in a lace dress full of incredible texture from Emmy Mae Bridal that was both a show-stopping focal point on its own and a soft backdrop for the spring blossom bouquet created by Forever Wildfield. Ultimately, these subtle details were brought to life by all of the stationery details that Flourish Calligraphy designed for the day. In particular, the stunning menus that were printed on a beautiful muted oatmeal linen and became our favourite aspect of the tablescape. Placed underneath subtle blush and gold decor pieces from Simply Beautiful Decor, they added a necessary organic element that brought us full circle to our original inspiration source.
