Engagement Session in a Canoe – Guestbook07.25.14

Sheila and Rob came back to Ottawa from their home in Alberta to tie the knot. On one of their rare visits home, we were able to shoot their engagement session. Rob is an avid canoeist and the setting of a beach/canoe inspired engagement session was perfect for them. We took some of their personal favorites and created an interactive guestbook on fine art paper. It was beautiful and a great way to engage guests on the big wedding day.

Engagement sessions are included in our collections. We find it is a great way to get to know our clients in advance of the wedding day.

Wedding Bouquet – Made with Love07.24.14

Brianna and Shane were married at Saunders Farm just outside Ottawa. I was instantly struck by how beautiful this bouquet was and when I learned that her Grandma not only grew these flowers herself, she also lovingly stored them in her fridge to perfectly time their blooming including a rare yellow peony. The result is a wedding bouquet made with her gran’s whole heart. We just had to share it.

Latest Issue of Wedluxe Magazine – Canada’s Luxury Wedding Magazine06.18.14

We are very excited for the latest issue of Wedluxe magazine to hit stands on June 23rd, 2014. Look for our gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana inspired style file “Teatro Verde”. A stunning and lush editorial that will inspire that bride whose feet are firmly planted on the ground but who wants to create a luxurious experience for her closest friends and family in an intimate setting. What I love about the editorial is that it is an achievable floral design and in a colour that is always fresh and classic. The Ines Di Santo wedding gown is perfect for the setting and adds an airy natural softness and the amazing shoes? Well those aren’t Jimmy Choo or the expected Louboutins…nope stright from Spring Shoes for under $100 :) I think you will really enjoy this beautiful editorial with the creative direction from the lovely and talented Paige Lewis of Paige Lewis Events in Toronto.
We are also excited about another one of our editorials that will be in this issue, “Inspired by the Colours of Capri”. With the talent from Covers Couture and 24 Karat Events, this is an editorial that will appeal to the young vibrant Kate Spade inspired bride. Full of colour that is bright but not overwhelming. The eclectic mix of florals in this style file includes citrus fruits, anemones as well as classic peonies, roses and hydrangeas. The desserts for designed to take inspiration from the gorgeous red Valentino shoes and all the beautiful colourful floral yumminess. I look forward to the blog post on Wedluxe BLog so that you can see the full suite of desserts from the talented Connie Cupcake.
So be on the lookout for the new issue and our new ad seen below. We can”t wait to see this new issue that will be full of colour inspired wedding ideas!
