I’m absolutely in love with today’s wedding captured by White Photographie. As you know, we don’t often share vintage inspired weddings, but this one has so many beautiful details that have just thrown us on the vintage train! We love the floral headpiece, dress, bowties, boots, cake and snowcones…it could go on. Introducing: Karyn & Nic.

From the bride: As most would agree weddings are designed to represent the couple, this was definitely our goal as we set out to plan and design our wedding! Right from the night of the proposal we had been dreaming up our magical wedding and brainstorming ideas.

The very first venue we visited ended up being the only place we needed to see. From the moment we stepped onto Ruthven’s property – we were sold! From the open fields, to the cobblestone coach house and the surrounding old stone walls, this location had us grinning from ear to ear.

I had my own vision for the church from the very beginning. As a photographer myself, and someone who tries to do things a little differently, my vision was to hang hundreds of rose pedals from the ceiling of the church.

After the ceremony we were eager to get back inside the church and start taking pictures underneath the rose petals. Without being able to visit with our guests directly after the ceremony for a traditional receiving line, it was very important to us that we made time in our schedule for the day to enjoy a cocktail hour with our family and friends. My sister-in-law co-owns a snow cone company called Sweet Ice, so we were more than happy to have them there to serve fresh fruit snow cones to our guests and us!

I really love fashion and wanted to have a unique look for my bridesmaids. I had so many ideas and wasn’t sure if I could pull off this look, but with the help of Jean’s Flower Shop in Hamilton; my bridesmaids were able to have full crowns of flowers to wear along with their blush pink flowing dresses and cute little boots! As for my groom, he has been a bowtie guy since we met and could have none other for his groomsmen.

For the cocktail hour I wanted to have bit more of a fun look to my Vera Wang dress so I added one of Vera’s bows to bring a more fashion forward look to my dress. As well, I also switched from my traditional veil to a fresh – flower headpiece to match the rest of my bridesmaids.

Niche catering served our delicious dinner and our whimsical cake was made by the groom’s cousin Tiffany Melfi of “Miss Beauty Baker”. To cap things off we decided to have our first dance under a beautiful gazebo on the grounds of Ruthven Park.

The day felt like it was out of a movie and was truly magical for us. White Photographie captured it perfectly and represented our style through every photo. They allowed me to express my photo ideas as well and were so accommodating to our needs. We couldn’t have been happier!
