Blushing Blue Bridesmaid Inspiration

Filled with sweet blooms, the most charming basket-bedecked bicycle, and one of the cutest black tie-ready pooches I’ve ever seen, this is exactly how I envision spring in Toronto. Courtesy of the winning team of Phoebe Lo Events and Rhythm Photography, this Bridesmaid inspiration shoot is just brimming with loveliness, all in the gallery here!

From Phoebe Lo EventsOur Blushing Blue Bridesmaid inspiration features a classic floor length Nouvelle Amsale chiffon dress paired with a delicate bouquet of ranunculus. Gracefully wisping through the marshes of Toogood Pond in north Toronto, a delightful showcase of a summer bridesmaid style is captured through traditional and contemporary elements.

Greeted by a corridor of freshly bloomed lilacs, our bridesmaid enjoys an elegant bicycle ride with a basket full of locally crafted goods inspired for fanciful keepsakes at any wedding celebration. A bunch of locally grown lavender playfully blossoms alongside a stack of literary classics. The papier ensemble basks with a vibrant bouquet of handmade flowers alongside an array of crafted stationery and thank you cards.

An ode to the beautiful Canadian creative culture peers through the basket and takes form of a national flag. Made by salvaged wooden planks sourced from local apple farm crates, these wooden design seconds as wedding centerpieces or a gift for guests and friends. A tastefully wrapped gift embellished with a vintage inspired emblem chariots the party of handheld luxuries and flourishes with a sweet parcel of artisan marshmallows.

Completing the vision are a set of dazzling metallic tattoos that redefine a traditional bridesmaid style with a charismatic contemporary spin. Our bridesmaid’s visit is also accompanied by the dashing bulldog, Chino, who will be making a charming appearance at any summer wedding affair.

From Laura Kelly PhotographyIt rained for six days straight leading up to the wedding. Clearly someone was watching over Jamie and Chris as they prepared for their outdoor ceremony and tented reception at The Herb Garden. When the big day finally came… there was nothing but blue skies and warm sunshine.

This wedding will certainly be one of my favourites from the season!

Ontario Anniversary Shoot in High Park

My hubby and I are closing in on our five year anniversary (how in the world did that happen so fast?!), so this sweet little anniversary shoot captured by Injoy Imagery of these two love birds (see their wedding herehas me itching plan just a session. Because celebrating love just might be my favorite thing ever, and there is a whole lot to celebrate here.


From Injoy ImageryNewlyweds, Claire and Bryan were married last summer and decided they wanted to celebrate their 1 year anniversary with a beautiful cherry blossom-filled spring photoshoot. So in love with each other and so in love with married life, it’s always so beautiful to see the excitement carry on even after the wedding.

Cherry blossom season being one of Claire’s most favorite times of the year, there was no better place than Toronto’s High Park. Claire being the crafty, Pinterest- savvy lady that she is, ensured all the lovely little details were taken care of. From a simple and elegant baby’s breath bouquet, to adorable Anthropologie mugs filled with pink peonies spelling L-O-V-E to their BHLDN vow booklets from their wedding day and my favorite, a picture of the two of the from when they were babies. That’s how long they’ve known each other and they still share this sweet, beautiful, romantic and playful love. It doesn’t get any better than that!

Whimsical Spring Wedding at Berkeley Field House

I may have a new venue to add to my favorites list. Toronto’s Berkeley Field House continues to get me excited and this spring celebration captured by Rhythm Photography reminds me why I’m falling more and more in love with the chic, minimalist style – with a bit of whimsy for fun. The whole shindig was simply stunning, ending with one fab creation from I Do! Wedding Cakes that leaves me craving more!

From the Bride… We wanted our day to be fun, laid back and personal. My gown was the Mabel from Vera Wang’s Spring 2015 collection. Simple light ivory silk crepe with a deep v-neck and back, and handmade fern-pattern lace cap sleeves. We fell in love with the Berkeley Fieldhouse as soon as we saw it, and didn’t look anywhere else. It had exactly the vibe we wanted, gorgeous high ceilings and a lofty industrial feel, contrasted with the beautiful courtyard and greenery outside. A little oasis in the city.

Our biggest focus was that it be intimate and that we had all the most important people in our lives there. We wanted it to feel like a nice cozy dinner party with incredible food and all of our favourite people, and then to have an amazing Motown dance party. Other than that, we went for simple, minimalistic décor, with a bit of a rustic touch. Our colour palette was white and mixed metallics and hints of green and peach.

Everything from the ceremony, through cocktail hour and dinner to the dance party was executed perfectly by the planners and staff there, we couldn’t be more grateful. Our day was all about good food, family and friends, letting loose and celebrating. The music we played throughout the day was from the 60s and 70s mostly, some 50s and some old school hip hop later in the dance party. We wanted everyone from our 2-year-old nieces to our grandmother on the dance floor, and they were!
