Welcome back lovelies. We hope you all had a fabulous holiday and are rested, refueled and ready to jump right into our first gorgeous post. It involves copious amounts of bright, fluffy peonies so you know it is bound to be good. Add to that a fun loving bride and groom and images by M Photography and this Ontario wedding is completely what the doctor ordered for your Monday morning.

Shannon had a million amazing ideas to create this very special day that was as much about their guests as the two of them. A vintage photo booth, name tags, lovely custom illustrated invitations, programs and menus, are just a few of the many details that went into creating this chic modern vintage styled day. We had an epic engagement session. Anyone who has worked with me knows that I LOVE my engagement sessions and this one was nothing short of a blast. With New York inspiration, we had the amazing time shooting around Ottawa. During this session, I had the oppourtunity to meet Jon, who simply adores Shannon. The chemistry between the two of them is truly magical…like watching two people dance through life together.

Throughout the planning time, the ideas were getting bigger and more beautiful and with the assistance of some wonderful wedding vendors like Miranda Forbes, our rock for the day and expert wedding planner at the Courtyard restaurant in the Byaward Market, Mood Moss Flower Design, Third Avenue Candy Store, Buttercream Bakery and the Candy Store, the vision for the big day came together beautifully.
