I had a personal project in mind this summer and with a small army of some of the most talented wedding vendors in Ottawa – it came to life and I am so incredibly excited to showcase this beautiful stylized session with you!
Inspired by the gorgeous golden hour lighting that takes place just before sunset, I set out with Anna, my gorgeous model and Amanda, Tiffany and Jen from Charmed Events to create a stylized summer wedding shoot with a soft, sun-kissed, romantic garden feel. The essence of this summer shoot was inspired by the blush of a bride, garden flowers and a relaxed vintage and feminine style. The soul of these photos show through the blush-toned wedding cake, with lace trim and beautiful handmade sugar roses, peonies, hydrangeas and ranunculus was brilliantly crafted by Christie’s Cakes – the most talented cake artist in Ottawa! Beautiful, soft and romantic – the bouquet, headpiece and floral arrangements by Sophie from Sage Designs feature garden flowers in hues of pink and creams with green accents. The bride’s lovely loose curls, styled by Melaina Landriault, were accessorized with a ethereal flower crown matching the bouquet and adding a touch of softness and whimsical romance to the shoot. Sophie is so incredibly talented and her floral arrangements were just breath-taking and an intricate part os this stylized session. Mandi Hutchinson drew inspiration from the pink and pastel hues in the bouquets for the bride’s make-up palette creating a soft, lovely glow suited to the golden hour garden party. Charmed Events did an amazing job in staging each vignette to bring a natural and vintage feel to every shot. They assembled a garden party backdrop noting the importance of each personalized element. The addition of natural touches such as pinecones and lemon slices were chosen to suit the outdoor setting – these talented ladies added an air of modern day nostalgia that followed the sun to sunset!
A million thank you’s to everyone who came out and worked hard with me in making this sessions such a stunning success!!!
