Wedding Bouquets

I have done a lot of wedding shoots creating stunning dresses to coincide with other talented wedding vendors. One thing you always notice in these shoots. are the beautiful floral arrangements and bouquets. I really have been wanting to share some gorgeous inspiration and options with you so you can find something you love and maybe even have a florist close to home that you had no idea existed.

Simple, elegant and green, is sometimes the best way to go. You can do a really light and airy look and have a really sweet colour like the pinks in these captures to create a soft and lovely wedding theme. (For more from this shoot)

Floral Designer - Flwr Club

Again very soft and light but with a whimsical type of theme, very flowing and care free. This bouquet is one that jumps out at you in the most beautiful way. I love the combinations used here and then the subtleties used for the cake and her hair are the perfect match up.

Floral Designer - Raindrops on Roses (she’s actually one of my faves and I have worked with Chi several times, she creates that most fantastic floral designs.)

This is so BOHO I love these flowers, again very carefree and simple with just the right amount of everything, the way it all just comes together perfectly for these shoots on the day of is amazing. It is literally like planning a wedding, minus the guests and giant bill haha, in only a few months.

Floral Designer - Rain Drops on Roses

This one gives a few different options and totally for spring/summer. When we did this shoot there was a snow storm the night before and it was absolutely freezing outside, these floral definitely had us dreaming of warmer weather. The floor arrangement was tall and perfect for your alter, a hanging bouquet for a more dramatic feel and one that was so bright and sunny I could feel the sun, while the last was soft and just the ultimate summer loving kind of bouquet.

Floral Designer - Hilary Adele Floral Design

Omgoodness this shoot smelt incredible let me tell you, all the fresh fruit and florals I was in heaven. I love the bright and gorgeous colours used for this one. I actually had a dress that had a pink skirt, so gorgeous. I can’t show you too much of this one because we are waiting to be featured, BUT I had to share these little snippets of a fabulous array of colours (heart eyes all day!)

Floral Designer - @mariakarimfloristry

Slowly inching through summer and transitioning into fall. This floral crown was perfect for this 1970’s shoot taking from the gorgeous bouquet that had orange Gerbera daisies that are just my dream flower, they’re so pretty and soft. These again can be paired with many different styles of weddings, outdoor and boho come to mind. I just think if you want a flower crown then wear one!

Floral Designer - Rain Drops on Roses (can you tell I love her!)

Okay here comes fall and such stunning rich colours, each designed beautifully by the amazing Rain drops on Roses. I just love working with her because I know her work is always going to be absolutely flawless. That floral crown was definitely a perfect piece for this elopement wedding shoot but would one hundred percent be a wonderful piece for a destination wedding. That’s a little how I see this shoot, like a destination wedding, with the skirt that is removable on that gown.

Another Bohemian Beauty, these deep delicious colours scream fall, the burgundies, oranges, greens and pops of blue are everything. I was not able to be at the shoot but the captures made that day have me swooning for fall and comfy clothes (I love everything fall - little known fact about me!) - See more here!

Floral Designer - Labelle Fleur Design

Last but not least on this epic floral journey, some that are made with fabric, fake flowers and paper! The stunning, handmade floral fabric bouquet is one of my favourites for sure. Marie is so talented at what she does, making hair bows and clips. I asked her if she could create this and she blew me away. I can’t find the girl that made the paper flowers for me but a bouquet with these created by someone who is really good, could do something really stunning for you. The fake flowers bouquet was made by yours truly for a shoot I did with the second wedding dress I ever made, yes it was pink! (Check the link to see more!)

I hope this inspires you!

A Pink Wedding Dress

This was the second wedding dress that I ever made and how much FUN! This two in one twirling ruffle and cocktail style was perfect for this bride. AS I tell a lot of my brides with custom you can do anything and this shows you that 100%! She wore this one for her at home wedding from city hall to love with family. It was such a pleasure to be apart of this because I’ve known Meghan for such a long time and for her to help support my beginning is amazing! You can see in these fantastic shots shes absolutely stunning.

Elopement

At the end of last summer, I did an amazing collaboration with quite a few talented ladies. This Fall elopement shoot was incredible. We just got to the location just after a storm passed at 8am, it was a bit chilly that morning and very windy. But as we all arrived and got every thing set up, Models dressed and camera ready. It got warm, blue skies appeared and the sun created such great light peaking through the woods.

Claireville Conservation in Brampton, Ontario is like a dream. Especially for a photo shoot, we had several landscapes to choose. From rolling Hills to a rocky road and even into the woods, no wonder we all had such a fabulous day! 

The couple were gorgeous and really so in love, which truly takes your breath away with such intimate moments. I was lucky to be apart of something so very special. If eloping were just like this, I think more couples would do it ;).

Creating this dress was really wonderful, from the first designs to the day of the shoot. It is romantic and flowing plus a little flirty underneath the beautiful veil like removable skirt. I love the way the wind carries and fills it up in some of the gorgeous pictures by Roxana Martinez Photography.

I hope this inspires you and fills you with so much joy!

Do you plan to have two dresses for your Wedding Day but it’s adding up to be too much for your Budget? A removable skirt may be the perfect option for you. Beautiful and elegant for down the isle and then a reveal for the reception and ready to dance the nice away. Check out the fun and flirty blog post of the amazing pink Wedding Dress that goes from twirly to cocktail hour.

Boho Wedding

Boho Wedding

Last spring I created a simply elegant bohemian wedding dress for a Spring Photoshoot with Michelle Liane Photography. My favourite thing about these collaboration shoots, is that I am given a rough idea and can run with it. Being creative is one of the best things life can offer, the joy I feel when it all comes together is just the greatest thing! Working with so many other amazing creatives is so worth while. You will see that the beauty that comes from each of us illuminates through the moments that were captured in the shoot.

This couple was real, completely and totally in love and it shows. Little do you know the sweet nothings being whispered were pretty silly jokes which made her laugh so incredibly true. I know that my guy would be the same way, silly and trying to make me laugh, so people aren’t super lovey dovey and that’s okay! I think even on a wedding day being silly is one of the reasons she has chosen to be with him or vise versa. These captures are stunning and I am so happy that even though I was 7 months pregnant at the time I could totally be apart of it. You wouldn’t know that there were a million mosquitos and it rained basically the whole time, HA!
