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.”

We’re ending the week with a lovely engagement from Julia Park Photography captured in the heart of downtown Toronto. Jacob and Lily admit they aren’t the type of couples who often take photos, but given their engagement, they felt it was the perfect time for them to capture themselves as a couple on film. Says Lily “We wanted the photos to not only represent our personalities but to be timeless with a touch of whimsy.”
The paper flowers were made by the bride-to-be and surely a sign that this DIY maven will be creating some items for her own wedding day. Lily shares with us how she created the lovely large blooms.
The flowers were handmade with doublet crepe paper, 180 gram florist crepe paper, florist tape. 18 gauge florist wire and wooden dowels. Each paper flower was made of 5 tear drop shaped petals and 15 heart shaped petals which were cut from doublet crepe paper, stretched then curled for a more life like effect before being taped with florist tape around a wooden dowel. Leaf shapes were cut out of 180 gram florist crepe paper and taped onto floral wire.
It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve posted and I’m so excited to get back into the groove by sharing today’s utterly creative wedding. Remember those lovely laser-etched barn save the dates I shared with you last year? You ain’t seen nothing yet. Today I’m sharing Shauna and Darrell’s wedding captured by Ania & Tyler Stalman that is just cooler than anything I’ve ever seen. Details galore, the wedding is just utterly inspiring in black and white with pops of gold & mint. Shauna, a graphic designer, had the wedding invites printed on tea towels and the reception was held at a gorgeous barn in Okotoks, Alberta. She transformed the space into a feast for the eyes, including a gold dipped feather backdrop, bunting, and even homemade strawberry jam for each guest to take home.

Today’s wedding captured by Lisa Mark Photography is the perfect mix of elegance and fun. Lesley-Ann and Glen’s reception planned by Fab Fete Event Planning at The Rosewater Restaurant was nothing short of elegant, with gold and ivory details throughout. But come time for the entertainment, the event became a party, with Caribbean dancers who escorted the newlyweds into their reception.
Says Lisa: “Lesley-Ann & Glen’s urban Toronto wedding was a true blending of families, as they each already had beautiful children when they met and fell in love. It was so lovely to see how the happy couple incorporated their children into the wedding day festivities. Every tiny detail was carefully planned by Lesley-Ann & Glen, and the ivory & gold touches everywhere were just perfection!”
