I’m excited to share with you today a beautiful photoshoot courtesy of a group of talented vendors from Southern Manitoba, collectively known as the “Southern Suite”. It’s organic goodness at it’s best, filled with boho details, natural arrangements and wood-grained stationery. Some of the ‘ingredients’ used in the bouquet (apples, berries & succulents) should inspire us all to be a little bit creative for our own weddings, don’t you think? Happy Thursday everyone.

The Southern Suite is a collection of wedding vendors all working in Southern Manitoba. To introduce our team of vendors, we ran a contest where couples submitted their love stories and were voted on for the public’s favorite. Robin and Dan were one of our lucky winners and what a treat to work with - this lovely couple is getting married this winter and it was a great opportunity for them to get comfortable in front of the camera. Clearly, it worked!

When it came down to selecting themes we wanted something that was trendy, could be adapted to today’s weddings and showcased our work and the couple flawlessly. Settling on an organic theme for our first session with Robin and Dan we styled the shoot in natural elements like wood, berries and vintage furniture while playing up the soft and pretty side with a fitted lace gown, a flawy updo with a handmade boho halo and dreamy makeup to really contrast the elements.

We hauled out lots of goodies and printed things to the location in Morden, Manitoba to complete the Organic look. The location was picked for it’s long grass and rows of apple trees that created the perfect backdrop to toe in the details of the woods and fruits. The birdcages were a must for the overgrown bush, the vintage table was from a loyal customer’s Grandma that she graciously lent us.

The bouquet in this shoot was designed to be something with loads of unexpected elements and an atypical shape. Fresh Apples (we are the home town of the Corn and Apple Festival after all) succulents from our local greenhouse, berries still on the branch, droopy calla lilies, amaranthus, fall coloured leaves, and more rich coloured beauties.
