The inspiration behind the shoot revolved around a bridal brunch for the modern and yet laid-back bride who values friendship and community. We utilized mauves, peaches, and organic hues, while throwing in a little bit of bold with the deep plum and sweet yellow tones.

The short, Moroccan table created a space where the bride and her maids could relax, laugh freely with one another, and enjoy friendship. The pillows and layered rugs with cowhide and woven pieces assisted in adding texture and the flare of the bride’s personality.

Vintage table pieces hinted at the bride-to-be’s forever, while the soft and delicate florals whispered new beginnings. Her peacock chair and wicker lounge area helped to bring the space alive with the touches of greenery and leathered poufs.

This golden wedding inspiration complete with a Clydesdale horse took place at what looks like a modern day castle. Set on rolling hills beside a vineyard, The Farm at High Shoals offers an incredible backdrop for this inspiration full of texture, dusty blues, and romantic details.

The bride wore a netted lace gown and floral headpiece, the cocktail tables were adorned with blue linens and apple filled centerpieces, and the reception table overflowed with a jaw-dropping centerpiece that grounded the watercolor calligraphy table runner. An incredible team of vendors helped bring this inspiration to life.

From Leslie Dawn Events:

So many of us have memories of visiting a farm with the smell of hot baked apple pie drifting  through the countryside and fresh eggs on the table as the early morning sun broke through the clouds. There was something so comforting and also romantic in the early hours of the day.

We wanted to design a wedding concept reminiscent of those early mornings on the farm. We chose a muted palette of neutrals and brought in fresh baked goods. We wanted to convey a sophisticated and soft farmhouse style with slight rustic elements that created a charming and romantic backdrop.

Inspiration from Payton (Promise Event Planners): This shoot was inspired by my parents’ wedding china. My parents were married in Texas in 1990. While everyone was registering for classic white and blue or floral china, my parents decided on this modern, onyx black hexagon set. They were way ahead of their time and passed along their love of black to me.

From the china, we built a dark colored and modern mood for the shoot. We went for blacks, deep emerald greens, with pops of white, and assorted metals. I have a love for combining contrasting design styles. We combined modern clean lines and shapes in a natural and organic space at Cottonwood Glen.

Through the medium of film, Tamara Gruner Photography effortlessly captured each image while taking her time to get the perfect shot. Her eye and use of natural light and fine art style was a compliment to the modern styling that blended in contrasting harmony.

House of Yonder created a textured bouquet of dark lush greenery and fall foliage with soft touches of blush garden roses and white ranunculus. The spilling organic centerpiece gracefully complimented the mid-century modern style table, wood slat chairs, and wooden tapered candle holders. The black champagne flutes were complimented by the green crystal goblets. They also provided the lounge setting staged in the middle of a field.

 

The stationery suite by Stefanie Hofmeister was comprised of a black origami inspired folded invitation. The opening of the invite revealed a modern script and organic polka dotted pattern. The envelopes were a contrasting black with white calligraphy. Stefanie added in touches of glimmering copper to tie in the metallic touches.

The models have a remarkable story of their own. The couple met on a styled bridal shoot years ago. While pretending to be a couple in love and displaying their chemistry, they fell for each other during their shoot. The rest is history. They are now married with two beautiful children. Their real-life love shined through in the photos more than we could have imagined. The groom wore a classic black suite with a polka dotted black bow tie. The bride adorned a two-piece gown from Emma & Grace Bridal. The modern constructed bodice met the flowy bottom to create a sexy yet ethereal bridal look.

Using my parent’s actual china in the shoot was something that was so personal and incredibly special. This shoot was a breathtaking combination of opposites that came together to create something so beautiful and seamless.

Inspired by the magic of sitting on a patio of a charming cafe in Paris, sipping coffee, Jessica Hoang of Bisous Events collaborated with an incredibly gifted team together to design and create this stunning styled shoot. Within the rustic brick walls of The Jam Factory, and the muted tones of the blush and neutral florals exquisitely designed by Mum’s Garden, you can’t help but be inspired by the enchantment of a wedding in France. In these gorgeous images you will see Jessica’s genius vision come to life, and luckily Lénaïc Sanz was there to capture every amazing detail.

Coffee always brings to mind so many wonderful memories. The aroma. The conversations. The meetings. The dates. The taste. The energy. The escape.

For this styled shoot produced by Toronto wedding planner and creative director, Jessica Hoang of Bisous Events, it was inspired by the one word “cafe” that Parisian photographer, Lenaic Sanz, had sent her for inspiration.

Nothing is more Parisian than the idea of a cup of coffee on the patio of a Paris cafe. The location was not only on top of a cafe but was inspired by the colors of coffee seen in the bricks and tones of the editorial. Our bride, Sophie, (played by model, Tanya) exudes that confidence of an urban girl with bold makeup by Ford Beauty while embodying the carefree nature of a small town country girl in these flowing gowns (Sash and Bustle). She gets ready for her big day by styling her hair (by Bridal Hair Collective) while spending most of the morning in her custom robe ByCatalfo.

The wedding is under way and it is beautiful decorated with lush flowers by Mum’s Garden, including a climbing arbor for the ceremony and lush table arrangements. It’s an intimate wedding with vintage pieces such as the amber stemware, bronze cutlery, and brass candle sticks. The custom stationery by Paper Mache Co. set the tone for the sophisticated affair.

Guests woke up to the aroma of coffee in the air at home and ended their dinner with a shot of espresso to continue the night dancing.
