Engagement sessions are much more meaningful when held at a location that is important to both the bride and groom. Today I’m sharing Kim and Brenden’s session captured by Matthew Clemente Photography.
Says Matthew: With Brenden being a rugby player, Kim and Brenden often find themselves at the Twin Elm Rugby Park in Ottawa. So it was only fitting that their engagement session capture all the memories they forged here. We timed the shoot just before sunset to take advantage of the beautiful golden October light.

This will surely start your week off on a beautiful note as I am sharing a recent collaboration that is sure to inspire you. Captured by Oak & Myrrh Photography, models wore unique floral creations by Reannan Ross Floral in non-traditional ways to show you how gorgeous it is when you step outside the box of typical wedding design. Makeup and hair was done by Beauty by Melissa Joy.
An absolutely lovely wedding graces the top of the blog this morning, held at the Holland Marsh Winery in Newmarket, Ontario. While there are many colours used throughout, they’re all soft and complementary to the rustic vintage theme making for the perfect mix. Trica and Adam worked with Bliss Events to create an event that was not only beautiful but also a treat for guests including a drink station at the wedding ceremony, flip flops for dancing and steel drums for the reception music. Almost makes you wish you could have been there! Photography is by Pink Bliss Photography.
Trica & Adam wanted a rustic-chic wedding at the beautiful Holland Marsh Winery. Tricia’s love of Pinterest and wedding blogs gave her lots of ideas for a fun beverage station when guests arrived to the ceremony, a beautiful vintage window shutter seating chart, and adorable flip-flip stations outside the ladies room. This beautiful was all smiles on her big day, and her husband-to-be was nothing short of gushing. The two shone with love, and were surrounded by joyous friends and family.
The vineyard was a perfect location for the two to tie the knot, and mother nature did not disappoint with the sun shining all day. When the fun finally went down, twinkle strung lights lit up the terrace, and candles filled the indoor exposed wood beam event room. Guests dined family style and filled the room with laughter. Wooden planks with mason jars full of garden flowers sat on the tables, and the head table was caped off with a custom cake by one of the bride’s family members.
Tricia, Adam, and their family kept the party going all night long with amazing music and dancing, and displayed one of the most electrifying “Electric Slide”‘s that we have ever seen.
I’m just absolutely smitten with today’s wedding inspired shoot. Held in the beautiful Niagara region, Bruna Sanches and Kathie Barone paired up with some amazing Ontario vendors to create a spring photoshoot that’s just oh-so-dreamy. The beautiful peach blossom orchards served as the picture perfect backdrop and was paired so unbelievably well with the pink and gold hues used throughout the decor. Chevron sequin linens, gold plated tea cups, lovely floral arrangements and a beautiful bride…gorg! Photography is by Simply Lace Photography.
This styled photo shoot was set in the breathtaking Niagara Region in Ontario, amid the beautiful peach blossom orchards that come to life for only a short, fleeting time each year. The inspiration for this styled shoot came to me during the long winter months that we had this past year. I craved the sunshine, fresh flowers, happiness, romance, lace and soft tones of spring. I wanted to capture the reawakening of the pastel pinks, blues and greens of spring, as they emerged from the winter greys. I’m honoured to have met and worked with some very talented vendors who helped me bring my vision to life.
This year, the peach blossoms proved to be elusive and never really came into full bloom. As we anxiously waited nearly a month for the first blossoms to bloom, we had to work hard to adapt and prepare every vendor to be ready to go at a moment’s notice, while not having a set date.
But the challenge was so worth it! I’m so happy with the romantic and soft feel of this styled shoot. I have a love for all things pretty, dreamy, airy and magical– I am a total romantic!– and I think the shoot captures all of those. I also hope it will inspire brides and show that something simple and soft is easy to create when it’s set in a beautiful peach orchard during those magical spring days.
