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.

When you’ve seen loads of engagement sessions, you really appreciate ones held at unique locations. Along with 3Photography, Emily and Paul had their session held at an indoor conservatory in Toronto that was filled with loads of lush greenery and vibrant florals.
Says Jaclyn: Emily and Paul are a fun, loving, and vibrant pair, and this location reflects them as a couple so beautifully. They were totally in their element here. Emily had suggested we do our shoot at Allan Gardens and I was of course on board because it the most lovely place to shoot – a photographer’s dream! Not only was it the most perfect light inside of the green house, but it was JAM PACKED with the most incredible plants, flowers, succulents, you name it. Beautiful, curving stone paths took you through the entire gardens which was so peaceful and calming. After taking some shots inside of the greenhouse, we decided to step outside and take advantage of the awesome outskirts of the greenhouse, especially the windows looking inside.
Both this couple and the location are pretty amazing. Can we also note how incredible Emily‘s amazing red hair looks against the wonderful greens in these photos? I love it! Emily and Paul were so easy and fun to shoot, and I cannot wait for their wedding!
Today’s wedding is classic with a vintage flair. The bride in lace had her hair set in beautiful waves and she carried a bouquet made out of colourful brooches. Captured by K Push Studios, the event was held at The Doctor’s House in Kleinburg, Ontario.
