    Easter Elegance and Whimsy

    Love this light and playful Easter wedding inspiration from WPIC set in downtown Toronto! Gigantic golden wings set against the CN Tower accompanied with spring/Easter color scheme of green, blue, purple and pink.  It was so lovely to see the shimmery iridescent tables covered in opulent china, crystal and gold and as well as the fun cotton candy-topped cocktails, and smoke bombs.

    From the Planner:

    This Elegant and Whimsical styled shoot took place right in the heart of Toronto at the amazing Vantage Venues on the 27th Floor overlooking Lake Ontario and the amazing city-scape.

    This lovely styled shoot was actually a second wedding for our couple, Rachel and Jason. I officially married them in a beautiful, intimate Microwedding exactly one week before! The first wedding was for their family and friends, so the couple was thrilled to have a completely different wedding just for them.

    The ceremony took place in front of giant golden wings set against the CN Tower as a backdrop. The white aisle runner was lined by colorful floral arrangements and elegant candles. Gold and white Louis Chairs added to the luxurious elegance of the space.

    We later set up the head table against the windows over looking the Toronto waterfront and the CN Tower, with the giant gold wings. The tables were topped with iridescent linens that changed from green, to purple, to blue.  

    Our theme was carried through with whimsical, dreamy florals in those same colours and gorgeous place settings with blue and pink alternating china and topped with a dome of macarons. Gorgeous glassware continued the whimsically elegant feeling with each place setting having pink, blue, purple and gold-rimmed crystal. The china sat atop mirrored charger plates and was flanked by gold utensils. We also had round guest tables with the same design.

    The chef at Vantage Venues created mouth watering dishes that not only looked amazing, but they were delicious! Rachel and Jason toasted their new union by sipping on champagne and cotton candy cocktails. These were a real favorite of Rachel’s (the entire team really enjoyed them!)

    We then went outside to take photos in the heart of downtown, to add to the whimsy we set off a smoke bomb, again with the CN tower at their backs.

    Our team of wedding planners dubbed ourselves “Team Unicorn” because of the soft spring colors and dreamy esthetics of the shoot. It was such a wonderful day and everything flowed so smoothly with such a terrific group of wedding professionals!

    Idaho City Winter Elopement Photos

    Winter is still here and we’re still celebrating the beauty of it all! Enjoy this gorgeous winter shoot up in the mountains of Idaho City. Love the use of a chic white bridal hat to complete the look. What do you guys think?

    Photography by Miranda Renee Photography:

    The models (Bo and Blake) nailed this Styled Trendy Winter Elopement in the mountains in Idaho City (just north of the state capitol of Boise). The coordinators who set up the day made it complete with a flat lay station, real flowers, cake, and all the perfect little details to make it feel like a real elopement! We got all set up at our location when a Sheriff drove by and told us that specific spot was closed, but the snow had knocked down signage. So we moved to an equally beautiful location along Grimes Creek where we stayed until the sun set behind the mountains. We enjoyed some of the cake and while cars warmed up for the drive back to the city.

    Punta Cana Beach Wedding: Geneva + Romeo

    From Taylor Ashley Photography:

    When Geneva + Romeo asked me if I wanted to join them for their destination wedding in Punta Cana, my answer was HELL YES. Nothing sounds better than white sands and tropical vibes for a spring-time wedding. What I didn’t realize was how freaking epic this day would be and how INCREDIBLE her friends and family would be!

    I flew out to the Dominican Republic for the weekend and was immediately welcomed by their whole crew. We ate until we couldn’t possibly eat any more, drank all the delicious drinks, and got super silly! The morning of the wedding Geneva was the most calm bride ever and I could tell she was just so excited to finally do the damn thing. She looked absolutely gorgeous, seriously beyond words! Their ceremony was on the sand at Jellyfish Restaurant overlooking the stunning turquoise waters. Once Geneva + Romeo said “I-do” the party was onnnnnn! Everyone was enjoying shots of mamajuana and sharing their best stories about the couple.

    Honestly, I was unprepared for how LIT this dance party was about to get. Their DJ turned it up and everyone was dropping it low and twerkin’ their booties on the dance floor. There were even hand-rolled cigars being made next to the bar! I can’t believe how epic their Punta Cana wedding was!

    Bright & Airy Bridal Inspiration Shoot

    From Stelios Tsikas Photography:

    The Ancient Temple of Heraion dedicated to Hera, Goddess of marriage in Greek Mythology, captured our attention and infused our creativity.  Inspired by the backdrop of this Mediterranean landscape we created a bridal shoot for a free-spirited, fresh & romantic personality. Situated in a small cove off the Corinthian Gulf close to Athens, defines a remarkable translation  of ancient antiquity and a modern city aesthetic .

    Styled with an ethereal colour palette of nature’s best in mind, soft beige & neutral browns, crisp tones of green, and the undeniable hues of blue. This bride evokes style, a modern freshness, sprinkled with classic details to compliment a rustic setting . The bouquet made of olive branches symbolising peace, longevity, & union, spinning together a dreamy creation. Details of lace showcase a light and graceful mood for the wedding dress, perfect for a beach or rustic location. Pampas added to the hair with an exquisite head piece adds that free-spirited freshness. All in all, simplicity is effortless.

    Kleinburg Copper Creek Golf Club Wedding Photos: E + B

    Bringing you a beautiful wedding heaven with E + B’s intimate wedding at Copper Creek Golf Club in Kleinburg, Ontario.

    From Samantha Ong Photography:

    E and B had been dating for over 11 years! Their wedding day set at Copper Creek Golf Club was so beautiful. They had chosen this as their wedding venue because of the gorgeous scenery, the intimate setting and the amazing food.

    E wore a gorgeous dress from Becker’s Bridal and had chosen blush pink and gold as their wedding colours. She surprised Bruno before their ceremony during their reveal with a monkey mask. Although, Bruno had a hunch that she would do something like that since she asked for the mask a few days before the wedding and it was something she would typically do. That goes to show that they know each other so well.

    We photographed their wedding portraits around the venue and up by the beautiful big tree that overlooked the golf course. Their wedding ceremony had the same gorgeous view which made for such a romantic setting to say their I Do’s.

    Spokane Fall Wedding at The Barn on Wild Rose Prairie: Shae + Jordan

    Today we are blessed with this joyous wedding at The Barn on Wild Rose Prairie in Spokane, Washington.

    From M. Laine Photography:

    Writing this was especially intimidating, partially because I love the images so much and partially because the bride, Shae, is my younger sister. It’s always an honor to be chosen to document a wedding day, but documenting my own family is a special kind of treat.

    Shae and Jordan chose The Barn at Wild Rose Prairie in Spokane, as their venue, and as their photographer, I loved this choice! The options for photos there are endless.

    We chose to do their first look in an open field, and Shae even surprised Jordan with a journal full of their memories afterward. Afterward, we had a great time taking photos of the bridal party!

    Shae and Jordan’s ceremony was beautiful, and many tears were shed, mostly by Shae — she’s always been the sensitive one of the family!

    Everyone was excited for Veraci Pizza at the reception, and after a few emotional first dances, Shae, Jordan and I snuck away for a few portraits at sunset. These are some of my favorite photos from the day!

    When we came back to the reception, the bridal party livened up the dance floor with what has become to be known as “the Jordan heads”. They were originally made for Shae’s bachelorette party, but when they showed up at the reception, they were the life of the party!

    Like all good things, the party came to an end too quickly. Shae and Jordan made their grand exit under string lights and bubbles, but not before adding a dramatic dip and kiss!

    Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme, style or colour palette? Did you incorporate any cultural or religious traditions in any part of your day?
    The overall inspiration behind my wedding was a simple neutral colour palette. I felt like it aligned well with my day to day style and was fiance approved!

    Let’s talk about wedding decor. How did you decorate your space for the ceremony and the reception? Was any part of the decor DIY?
    I did my best to keep the decor simple because our outdoor venue provided a lot of natural beauty. I used items that had been handed down from my older sister’s wedding and added twists to personalize them.

    What were the florals like at your wedding? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centrepieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding?
    The florals at my wedding were also more simple. My bouquet was the most important floral item to me and it was! My bridesmaids had smaller bouquets to add some greenery to the natural palette and we included greenery on all of our centrepieces.

    Did you personalize the day in any way (food trucks, guest entertainment etc.)? What were some of your favourite parts of your wedding?
    One of my favourite personalized parts of our wedding was our officiant. He was had been a mutual best friend of ours and known our relationship from the day we met. My now-husband and I helped give him a general outline of what we wanted, including our favourite verses and quotes. We also read it and approved it ahead of time – which is nice because on the day I didn’t hear a single word he said.

    Let’s talk about fashion. How did you both choose your wedding day look? Describe the looks in detail.
    I chose my wedding day look at what exemplified my true style. I loved the modern look of the illusion lace combined with a timeless classic look of a simple mermaid silhouette.  It wasn’t over the top, but the lace gave it details that made it exciting.

    How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.
    We met in college and became best friends – JUST friends. After college, he decided to pursue me. For the proposal, he took me back to our college campus, Whitworth University and proposed in front of the dorm we met in. He had my photographer sister hiding in a hammock to capture the whole thing!

    What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?
    The most special moment of the wedding day was unexpected to me. I had been anticipating the first look for weeks, but what really hit home for me was the exchanging of our vows.  That was the moment where I felt it really hit home that I was marrying my husband.

    Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day?
    I think my biggest piece of wedding planning advice is to set a budget and stick to it.  It is really easy to get carried away, so you have to remember to stay disciplined!

    Power House Modern Romance Wedding

    Magnolia Collective:

    The Power House is a new venue that just opened in Rocky Mount, NC and when I first toured it, I immediately started dreaming of designing a wedding for the space.  When they approached me to help them style the opening event for the space, I knew I had to jump at the chance.

    Considering the fact that the venue is situated in a town that has very few event spaces, I knew that I wanted to create a space that would make people say “this is a beautiful event” rather than “this is good for small town USA”.  

    Tiffany Johnson, our photographer for the shoot, reached out to one of her couples from last year and we were absolutely thrilled when they agreed to model for us.  We made it a priority to utilize as many local vendors as possible, in order to showcase that couples did not have to travel to a larger city in order to have a beautiful event.

    Romantic French Wedding Inspiration: Printemps en France

    This incredible bright and airy styled shoot with French vibes is featured on the blog today! Alyssa Matt Photography:

    This shoot was styled after spring in Paris. The Sweet Peas and other garden blooms gave everything a soft a delicate touch. The wedding dresses were designed by a French dress maker, and nods to Paris were found throughout each of the details, crowned by an edible portrait of the Eiffel Tower itself on one of the 3 elaborate cakes.
