Whimsical

From The Bride…Planning was fairly relaxed, other than a few wedding party glitches and eccentric family members everything went pretty smoothly. We wanted our wedding to be the same, just about the celebration. We wanted it to be whimsical and dreamy. The first thing we did was to pick our colors. I knew I wanted mint and ivory with touches of gold and coral. Relaxed, vintage romance, like a 1950s summer’s afternoon.

The first thing we booked was our venue, and we chose Summerhill Pyramid Winery because of the beautiful setting and many options for photo locales, including a “homestead” and old mint truck. The reception venue was cozy, complete with wooden doors and oak barrels. This combination provided the perfect backdrop for the day. We then found our photographers and the ??vision? all came together. They were just like our dream wedding – fun and full of love.

We decided to have all of the guys in suspenders and slacks, all light and airy, sleeves rolled up. The girls wore mint lace dresses of their own choosing. We weren’t sure how it was all going to come together until the day of, but it worked!

I wore an ivory lace over champagne satin Jim Hjelm gown. It was the first one I tried on and definitely fit the bill. I went with an “old hollywood” look for hair and makeup and I carried a whimsical bouquet of White Mums, Coral & Light Peach Roses & Seeded Eucalyptus.

I wanted soft candle light in mason jars to mimic fireflies around the venue with the sun setting in the background. We had country music, strawberry cupcakes, and little pots of golden honey for guests to take home. We put together a thumbprint tree, handmade quilt guest book and advice cards to help us remember the day.

The result was one that exceeded even our expectations and left us with fond memories for life.

Sweet Peach Wedding Inspiration

Inspired by all things peach, this group of talents set out to craft a photo shoot that marries organic details and a touch of whimsey. It’s ripe with beautiful wild blooms by Dandie Andie Floral Designs, fun whimsical touches crafted by Lisa Ho Studio and a dessert bar from Sweet Table that dreams are made of. Sneak a peek at the rest of this beautiful shoot through the lens of Magnolia Studios.

From Lisa Ho StudioOur vibrant peach inspired wedding is the perfect marriage of organic elegance with whimsical details. Multicolor tones of peaches added understated color which allowed for the bride and her layering of the soft, delicate accessories to stand out against the natural backdrop.

The bride wore three separate gowns, all vintage inspired with shoulder coverage, and a beautiful cape added a unique touch to her ensemble which is sure to provide brides with inspiration for their own weddings! We also paired a long back necklace with the open back wedding gown.

The sweets table was designed to resemble a peach stand at a farmers market which included colourful chocolate covered oreo cookies, and glass candy lollipops with real flowers inside. The hand painted stationary added a personal, homemade touch which tied all of the natural and peach elements together.

Rustic Vineyard Engagement Session at Niagara on the Lake

When you’re this in love with your fiancé – and when you’re in a place with as much natural splendor as Niagra-On-The-Lake – its a whole lot easier to ignore the cold. Especially when you structure in frequent hot chocolate and reading breaks. Thanks to Andrew Mark Photography’s able eye, our hearts = warmed. So feel free to ramble through a labyrinth of grapevines with them in the full gallery.

From The Bride…Our photos were taken by Andrew Mark Photography in stunning Niagara on the Lake, Ontario–in our early dating days Ray took me here because he thought I would love it and he was right–I haven’t had enough since! It was one of those gorgeous end-of-fall days full of soft neutrals and the anticipation of Christmas. It was cold, windy and so clearly almost winter (it snowed the very next day)! We had to make a hot chocolate stop half way through the shoot to warm up! It was such an amazing day full of adventure and laughter.

Our vision was to add a pop of color to this already beautiful day– we wanted rustic romance, elegant, soft, pretty, and natural. Ray and I both love to read –So we brought a picnic blanket, some gorgeous vintage books and ourselves and we adventured through Niagara–exploring vineyards, forests, barns, and big beautiful open fields. Andrew and Emma are such wonderful photographers!
