A Gorgeous Alfresco Wedding Among the Vineyards

Surrounded by orchards and vineyards, this couple had the ultimate alfresco wedding. And just when we thought the scenery couldn’t possibly get any prettier, Fleurish Design Studio stepped in and designed what can best be described as pure floral arch awesomeness. Sneak a peek at the full celebration captured by Julia Park Photography with even more in the vault.

From the Photographer… Alex and Marian got married at one of the most beautiful Niagara Venues – Gracewood Estate. Their day was full of beautiful details – and most importantly pure joy, all around! The open air ceremony and reception among the orchards and the vineyards made everyone feel they were celebrating somewhere in warm Italy. Their ceremony set up included the most gorgeous flower branch and church pews.

All eyes were on Maria as she worked down the else with her dad holding her hand firmly. Alex was so giddy seeing his bride for the first time. He was smiling ear to ear, and as they joined their hands, they exchanged the cutest giggle. And you could see that at that moment nothing would make them happier than marrying each other. After a cocktail hour in the cooling shade of a peach orchard, the guests were invited to be seated in the garden of cherry trees for dinner.

The time of the year couldn’t have been better to be sitting under the cherry trees, as ripe cherries were hanging down, where you could reach some with your hands, without standing up! Talk about fresh snacks! As the dinner started, clouds covered the sky and at the end of the dinner, refreshing rain fell, and everyone continued the celebration under the tent. Cutting their cake surrounded by friends and family, while holding sparklers, was one highlight of the day.

Inspiration for the Chicest of Toddler Rooms

I’m right in the midst of transitioning from baby to toddler room and I must say, this stunner is giving me major kid room goals. If you are a mama to a baby girl or just enjoy a gorgeous wallpaper moment, then this pink space is just for you. Designed by mom, Raewyn Fahlenbock, this gives our favorite wallpaper nursery (also designed by Raewyn) a serious run for its money. Get inspired to go Team Pink with the full tour shot by Elza Photographie.

The concept for this room popped into my head the second I found out that I was having my first baby girl. I knew that I wanted the space to feel dreamy and serene. A place that I wanted to spend time, and hopefully a place that would promote a good nights sleep!

I have a deep passion for wallpaper, so finding the perfect one was very important to me. Once I found this Designer’s Guild pattern however, I immediately knew that it was the one. Because the pattern was so subtle we papered the whole room. The flowers look like a watercolour painting, and truly make it feel like you are walking on a cloud the second you walk into the room. 

From there we added the girly pink elements such as the curtains, the Moroccan pouf and the ever-growing collection of dolls. For furnishings I turned to two of my favourite baby stores, Pottern Barn Kids (the change table and bed) and RH Baby and Child (rocking chair). The dresser was actually mine when I was a little girl, and is the perfect place for Olive to display her treasures and books. 

The little jewelry box is also a hand me down. Olive loves collecting all of her precious things to store in the little drawers. I love wall-to-wall carpeting in a kid’s room, as it adds a level of padding for floor play, and just generally makes the room feel cozy. 

We live in snowy Canada, so cozy is very important to us! Because wall to wall can be a bit dangerous with kids, I layer neutral area rugs and sheepskins on top. These are easily washable and can be easily swapper out if they get destroyed.

 Since Olive’s little sister Juniper was born a year ago, she has developed a deep obsession with caring for her own babies’. She loves putting them to bed in her little Design Stuff cot and singing them songs before bed. I couldn’t be happier with this room, and most importantly my girls love spending time in there. It’s a comfortable place for them to play, imagine and grow.

Minimal White Wedding Inspiration for Winter Lovers

Being a lover of all things white, this bit of beauty crafted by A Blush Moment and Rhythm Photography sings to my heart. Because when it comes to winter weddings, what’s more beautiful than a fresh canvas that lets you layer on the texture, intricacy, candlelight and metallics? Sounds like a cold-weather fete I’d raise my hand to attend. You too? Dive into The Vault for more.

From A Blush MomentThe term less is more was definitely prominent in this creative shoot styled by owner and lead wedding planner Jeannie from A Blush Moment. Simplistic was key when it came to executing a minimalist theme with clean lines, gold accents and an almost monochromatic colour palette. Tucked away in the heart of the distillery district Airship 37 was the perfect venue for this minimalistic shoot. An open space area made it possible to style the shoot from the ground up. Everything from the modern Ikea dining table to the ghost chairs from Chairman Mills to the hanging gold geometric prisms from A Blush Moment were carefully chosen for the shoot. Every item had its place. White pillar candles, which ran along the length of the dinning table, replaced the flower centerpieces commonly seen in weddings. The place setting was kept to a minimal with accents from the gold cutlery. The touch of gold was carried through in the hairpieces and earrings provided by The Loved One.

The bride had her hair and makeup done by May from Muah Beauty before she slipped into two classic yet contemporary gowns provided by Elmwood Brides. The groom wore a custom grey suit from Wingmen Suits. A 5-tier cake created by the talented team at Sugar Tiers was the showstopper of the day. It definitely was too pretty to eat. This wedding shoot was captured beautifully by Anita from Rhythm Photography as well as Norris from Norris Films. Both photos and video showcased this timeless occasion for years to come.
