Rachel A. Clingen Professional Shoot

Its that time again when we need to update our professional shots. A few of our dear wedding industry friends, shared their love and talents with me to make a whole lot of magic happen. The gorgeous lobby at Bellvue Manor was the perfect spot to show case our pretty table-scape and and to take a few beauty shots. My heart was touched by the helpfulness and talents of Make Up Artist Brittany Grey from Fancy Face.  She certainly didn’t have to much to work with, at least compared to all the beautiful models and young brides she encounters but I think its fair to say she took a few years off me! Our friends Mike and Erik from 5ive 15ifteen somehow capture our work with perfection every time. This was no exception! Thank you to our own team, including Andrea, our lead florist and Stephanie our on site manager. You girls are loved more then you know!

Our Cherry Blossom Garden Debut At The Wedluxe Show

The Wedluxe Show at Arcadian Court was one spectacular presentation showcasing some of Toronto’s leading wedding industry vendors. We were thrilled to be a featured area and created the most magical space, a true inspiration for brides. We were honoured to create and share the space with our dear and talented friends, wedding planner Laura from Laura & Co. Events as well as Jarar and Zehra from Fine Cakes by Zehra. Our Parisienne Blossom Garden was a feast for the eyes and it was hard to miss our massive cherry blossom tree towering over 20 feet tall. It took our team a full day to create the masterpiece but what a spectacular sight it was. Equally if not more impressive was the nine foot tall cake named ‘Charlotte’ created by Zehra. It was indeed truly breathtaking and had most lookers starstruck! Other features in our booth were a floral wall created for Lauras’ area as well as a beautiful and extravagant head table. Crystal bowls loaded with flowers graced the mirrored table top along with crystal candelabras and candlesticks. The booth was photographed by the super talented L’Atelier Lumber

Inspired By Louboutin At Graydon Hall

Inspired by the legendary designer Christian Louboutin, we worked with a fabulous team of Toronto wedding vendors to create this bold, colourful and glamorous wedding creative including the very lovely wedding planner Sunny from Lux Events Co.  Captured beautifully by Verve. Photo each shot reveals vibrant hues of ruby reds, fusias and an unusual pop of blue. Geometric and abstract patterns embrace an eclectic and luxurious feel. Our head table scape floral design included our vintage candelabras mixed with indian inspired lanterns. Those beautiful shoes are totally edible and were hand made by cake visionary Fine Cakes By Zehra

White Wedding at LeParc

Simple, elegant and romantic. Adele and Tarek’s pretty all white wedding at Le Parc in Markham, was recently featured in Wedluxe Magazine and we are excited to share it with you! When discussing the flowers and decor for their wedding, Adele and Tarek loved the simplicity of groupings of all white hydrangeas accented with silver vessels and loads of candles. We also created a modern back drop for the ceremony and reception with our custom and hand made paper flowers. We were so thankful to receive these lovely images from the talented ladies at Amsis Photography and are thrilled to share them with you!

Navy and Peach Hanging Gardens Of Babylon Wedding Creative

On a very hot and humid August day we were honoured to co-produce this beautiful wedding creative for Wedluxe Magazine with our sweet friends and wedding planners at Laura & Co. Events. The floral experience at the Toronto Botanical Gardens was inspiration overload with their beautiful walls of hanging ivy and foliage and gardens of boxwood hedges. Yes this would be the perfect venue for our Walls Of Babylon inspired shoot. Captivated by the beauty and lushness of this historical architecture, we would embrace the beauty of the Botanical Gardens to set the stage for a spectacular coral and navy tablescape loaded with luxurious flowers and gold vessels. As fate would have it, our timing was perfect! The venue was on a rampage of trimming all the hedges and overhead hanging greens for which we were able to re-cycle on our gorgeous stone and floral gazebo, loaded with flowers. Among other industry greats, we were able to work alongside our friend Sam, from Visual Cravings who captured every detail with incredible sharpness and beauty!
