Romantic Luxe Portrait Session by Joel Bedford Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography

I can’t tell you how in love with this portrait session I am.  The couple?  So gorgeous. The flowers?  Stunning. That Reem Acra gown?  Totally dreamy.  Joel Bedford did such an incredible job with this one.  Mat and Shannon have been together for a very long time (since 1999)!  and they married in a destination wedding a few years back.  After having their first son, Beau, and returning to Ottawa- the city where they met- it was the perfect time to relive the wedding experience. Justyna and Joel took the lead producing a romantic, luxe portrait session for them.  Feast your eyes, friends…

Michelle VandenBosch designed the stunning textured bouquet of orchids, cock’s comb and dahlias. It’s downright one of the most beautiful fall bouquets I’ve ever laid eyes on.   Shannon’s side braid was accented by a few pretty blooms creating a look of relaxed, natural luxury. 

A big thanks to Justyna and Joel… and many congratulations to Shannon and Mat on thirteen years together!

Late Night Snack, Anyone?
Posted by Kate. Filed under Wedding Inspiration

Here’s a little something we put together for a late night snack table, cute shower, or just a fun party.   It’s a simple, colorful concept that’s easy to DIY!  The inspiration started with the vibrant color of IZZE sodas.  We matched fabrics, paper sacks for popcorn, and simple florals to complete the clementine and ruby color palette.  

The finishing touch? An old-fashioned buttercream cake- yum!

A Ruby & Violet Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Talk about romantic… Vancouver natives, Dianne and Richard, had a destination wedding at the Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley… the ceremony was lovely, against the beautiful landscape of the resort.. the reception was utterly exquisite, filled with candlelight.  But most of all, we’re swooning over the ruby and violet color palette. Many congratulations to the happy couple and a special thanks to Briana Marie for sending this over!  See more photos in our Real Wedding Gallery.

Go to the Full Feature…

Dianne and Richard are the sweetest couple you can imagine, and wanted to travel from their hometown Vancouver, BC, to Napa Valley for their November wedding.  Food and wine are very important to them, so they selected the Calistoga Ranch for their special day.  In addition to amazing cuisine and paired wine, the resort features intimacy and luxury accommodations that Dianne and Richard wanted for their guests.  This is an especially close family, because Dianne’s twin sister is married to Richard’s first cousin and best friend, making this a true family affair!  There were twenty-eight guests in attendance, including two-week-old baby Isla who received her passport within hours of the wedding and traveled with her mom, the bride’s sister and Matron of Honor, to arrive at the last minute!

Two weeks later Dianne and Richard hosted an at-home reception for over a hundred friends and family members.  As the bride describes, “It was a bit crazy at the time trying to organize two events within two weeks of each other, but it was an amazing night to celebrate our marriage with all our friends and family and have everyone be a part of our happiness.”  -Suzy Berberian
