We’re starting off this beautiful spring week with a nautical inspired wedding held at the Point Claire Yacht Club in the West Island of Montreal. Captured by Nancy Kendle of I Will Photograph, Maryam and Ryan’s wedding was complete with long reception tables covered in yellow, pink and green centerpieces and Maryam wore a gorgeous lace detailed gown by French designer Laure de Sagazan.

You’d never guess that Ryan and Jennifer’s wedding was primarily full of DIY elements. In fact, I was so eager to put the images together, it was only after I wrote the credits did I realize that the gorgeous floral arrangements were actually arranged by Ryan’s mother, aunt and grandmother. The flowers were all grown on the family farm. Their special day was held at Belcroft Estates in Ontario and captured by Kayla Yestal.
Says Kayla: Ryan and Jennifer’s wedding truly represented the term “labour of love” in every possible aspect. All of the flowers were grown on a family farm and beautifully arranged by Ryan’s mother, aunt, and grandmother, Jennifer’s jewelry was hand crafted by her aunt, and the photography was actually a wedding gift from the photographer who happens to be the grooms youngest cousin! Donations were even made to the Arthritis Society in honour of Ryan’s fight with Sarcoid Arthritis. It was such a huge reflection of who they are as a couple, with everyone they love coming together to create something unique and meaningful for them. The perfect day to celebrate eleven years together as not only lovebirds, but as best friends.
It’s mid-week and spring is finally here. So let’s celebrate by doing a giveaway! I’m an avid supporter of Canadian wedding businesses, so I am so happy to be partnering with Blair Nadeau Millinery. I met Blair at the first Wedluxe show a couple years ago and adored her wedding hair accessories. She recently shared her 2015 Collection captured by Whitney Heard Photography. This season was inspired by weddings of years past, especially the gracefulness of brides from the early 1900’s as well as brides from the Elizabethan era.
One lucky reader will win a $100 credit towards one of her hair pieces showcased on her Etsy shop which has bridal accessories for every style of bride. See below to enter or you can leave a comment for this post telling us “what’s your bridal style?“. Contest ends April 20, 2015.
Starting off the week with a romantic bohemian inspired styled shoot captured by Nicole Sarah Photography that is just breathtaking.
Says Nicole: “I had been planning this creative session for some time. In my head I knew I wanted something that was the epitome of a connection to nature. Soft, feminine, romantic and alluring, with a touch of whimsical. I love all things bohemian! I took many ideas from some of my most recent beautiful weddings and combined them into a luxurious, richly coloured, yet boho session. I really wanted to focus on the simplicity and beauty of nature and how it can be one of your best assets or “props” if you will for the wedding day. The ethereal nature of the sunset helps to add significance to a wedding. The day and it’s moments are so powerful and emotive, yet fleeting.”
