We Could Write a Love Letter to This Ethereal Inspiration Shoot

Dear, Katie Nicolle Photography and Sue Gallo Designs, we’re declaring our love for this soft, romantic and ethereal inspiration shoot. With loose spring florals, lovely beauty from Tahnee Marie  and Honor Beauty, mesmerizing lettering from Corsivo Calligraphy and a dreamy gown from Sash & Bustle, this editorial at Willowbank has us completely smitten. See why in The Vault!


From Sue Gallo DesignsWe are utterly enchanted with each beautiful image captured by photographer Katie Nicolle. So delicate and lovely is her ethereal inspiration shoot around the preparation that every bride goes through on the morning of her wedding. Set in the ever so stately historic mansion of Willowbanks on Niagara on the Lake, this romantic vignette is timeless.

Katie drew inspiration from the neutral color palette of the mansion, allowing for the swaths of muted tones in the bouquet created by Sue Gallo Designs to take center stage.

Madison is resplendent in a gorgeous gown by Sash & Bustle. Her tousled waves by Tahnee Marie and soft make up by Honor Beauty are only matched in sparkle by the gorgeous heirloom jewelry from Corsivo Calligraphy. Who took Katie’s vision of timeless romance and gave our love letters a vintage angelic feel. Our intimate setting is simply devine..our bride…utterly refined…we are completely smitten.

How to Have a Traditional English Garden Wedding No Matter Where You Are

Though this Bride and Groom wanted the rustic landscape and natural beauty of Muskoka to set the tone for their summer wedding, they also incorporated touches of a traditional garden wedding as a nod to the Groom’s English upbringing. The result is a wedding that’s relaxed yet elegant, and beautifully romantic. See every gorgeous detail, courtesy of Crimson Photos and Images Life Media, in The Vault!

From The Bride…Since I was a little girl I have always spent my summers in Muskoka. The sun, lakes, and endless blue sky are a huge part of who I am and some of the happiest memories I have with my family and friends. The very first time Roger came to stay with my family there (he’s English) he fell in love with it as well. When we got engaged we both knew exactly where we should be married and wanted all of our friends who know Muskoka well and also those from England who have never been, to experience its beauty and charming character. I envisaged our wedding as relaxed yet elegant and beautifully romantic. I wanted the landscape and the surroundings to set the tone and the food, drinks and entertainment to refine it. As a typical Muskoka weekend does, Mother Nature threw everything at us. On our Friday Welcome Drinks we had pure sunshine and blazing heat. Saturday was overcast but warm, which made it perfect for pictures, and all of the guests appreciated a little bit of wind whilst on the boat ride from the church to the reception. Sunday was driving rain (the Brits felt right at home) and we had the most amazingly fun catered BBQ and all ended up dancing down on the dock, in the rain, in our bare feet, just the way it should be in Muskoka!

One Look at This Wedding and You’ll Want a Donut Bar, Too

After seeing Dru and Seeralan’s romantic-meets-rustic big day, I’m convinced every couple needs to follow in their footsteps and have a donut bar at their wedding. Why have just wedding cake when you can have wedding cake and donuts? But that’s not the only idea you should steal. This wedding is full of pretty inspiration — from the pastel color palette to the wild florals to the Bride’s lace wedding dress. Get inspired, courtesy of The Love Studio, in The Vault!

From Sara Baig DesignsThe inspiration for Dru and Seeralan’s reception design stemmed from Dru’s choice of a dusty pastel palette, her romantic, flowy lace dress and their poise and grace captured beautifully by Andreea from The Love Studio. They hosted an intimate soiree for their close family and friends at The Arcadian Loft. We loved the city vibe of the space, the exposed concrete ceilings, the oversized metal doors and the reclaimed brick accent wall. Dru and Seeralan selected a beautiful palette of serenity blue paired with hues of dusty pink and blush with antique gold accents setting the tone for a luxe rustic ambiance. The bouquets were designed with textural florals and cascading blush satin ribbons for the bridesmaids and serenity blue ribbon for the bride. We styled the groomsmen boutonnieres to match the chic blue checkered ties and their classic navy suits. The long harvest style tables welcomed the guests with green foliage garlands running the length of the tables, intertwined with mercury glass vintage vases with loose floral bouquets and a sea of candles. The mercury glass accents and driftwood details encapsulated the season bringing the outside in against the grandiose City Hall backdrop spanning the length of the room. We love it when all of the design details become a seamless vision from décor and florals to stationery and cake design. Our team collaborated with Jimmy from The Ferris Wheel Press to create soft, romantic floral inspired day of stationery printed on luxe shimmer paper. As well as The Rolling Pin, who created a rustic naked cake to feature our fresh floral arrangements. Our labour of love is styling, and we loved designing a beautiful display for a doughnut barscape. Doughnuts are one of the brides’ favourites, and we were thrilled to incorporate Dru and Seeralan’s pictures enjoying their favourite dessert. The doughnut bar details we enjoyed styling the most were the mini-doughnut paper cones made out of hand picked watercolour and gold striped paper, and the tower of doughnuts atop a luxe gold pedestal vase surrounded in rustic cascading greenery.
