Traditional-Modern Toronto Wedding

Happy Friday lovelies! Well…wow is all I can say after seeing all the beautiful details and overall pretty that went into this Toronto wedding by Mimmo & Co. The photography is breathtaking and so is the wedding! Down to every-single-detail. This wedding is kind of like a two in one deal; the reception, held at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club provided a serene backdrop for the couples vows and after the vows celebration. But this wedding isn’t just about the gorgeous ceremony and reception. From the bride… “Our favorite moment was the conclusion of the “laava,” or walk around the Guru Granth Sahib, which describes the soul’s journey to unite with the infinite. This is when the partners’ souls are united according to the Sikh faith, and we were officially married – one spirit in two bodies.”

I love the cultural significance mixed with beautiful modern sophistication and this couples own vision that makes this wedding one of my very favorites!

2013 Spring Wedding Trends

Hellooo spring? Where are you? Obviously nowhere near Manhattan that’s for sure… we still have icicles, winter coats, and the occasional flurry. But that’s not stopping any of the exciting and fabulous spring wedding ideas we have coming your way! And it feels like the best way to start is a round up of a few of the spring trends. I gathered a little of this and a little of that from what we’re seeing in spring weddings, fashion, and of course the blogging world to come up with my own list of 8 top trends. But my list is a little different because I didn’t want a bunch of random thoughts; instead I wanted a cohesive list of spring trends and how you can incorporate them into one wedding (yes, all of the trends in one!)

1. {Mint} Well mint and other pastels, but for me, mint tops the list. So a palette of mint it is
2. {Cactus} What? Yep, that’s right the fabulous cactus. These can be used as centerpieces, favors, or pretty decor, but trust me they work (second and ninth photos)
3. {Lace – used discreetly} Let’s be honest lace is a bit overused but one way to make it more trendy is to use it in a unique way. Case and point; these adorable wedding invites (third photo)
4. {Adorable invites} Speaking of invites, one big trend this year is small business, homemade items so why not get on the bandwagon; there are plenty of options out there that are affordable, creative and very cute (third and forth photos)
5. {Flats} These are popular on the runway so I’m thinking we’ll be seeing more fun options for wedding shoes led by the popular flat (love these loafers, fifth photo – they may be for the groom but they are technically still “flats”, and the J Crew ballet slippers, thirteenth photo)
6. {Tea Cups} These are definitely on the way back along with everyone’s love of vintage; I’m guessing dainty tea cups are going to be a big and wonderful part of weddings this year (sixth photo)
7. {Outdoor Lounge} One of my personal favorites and a big trend in 2013 so far, pretty obvious why these are so popular- because they are so cool! (seventh photo)
8. {Family Style Tables} The round table is out, family style long and very fun tables are in (eighth photo)

Happy Spring!

Dress of the Week – Anaessia

As Wednesday rolls around, I’m apparently still in my own little fairy tale world by the looks of our dress of the week by Anaessia. There is something so perfectly whimsical and feminine about this dress; it’s just one of those head turners. But it’s not a head turner in the typical wedding dress kind of way; and that’s what makes it so fun! From the lovely tulle skirt, the belted bow, and the gorgeous vintage lace bodice, everything about this dress screams {very} pretty little details!

City Slicker – Washington DC Engagement Shoot

City engagement shoots always have that giddy, “love them so much” effect on me so it’s not a surprise that I lit up with excitement over this DC shoot. Karen Seifert Photography captures the city and the couple (KC & Adam) magically; you can see just how happy they are wandering around the capital city and National Portrait Gallery! And the pictures made for a perfect guestbook for the couples destination wedding in Puerto Rico! Speaking of… would love to go there {proverbially of course} after this stop in DC! We could all use a little sun right now, especially in NYC! Happy Tuesday!

Board {#4} A Cinderella Wedding

After seeing Cinderella on Broadway this weekend {please, hold back judgement until you see it – SO good!} I was inspired by the fairy tales we grew up with and the only thing I could think to channel all the happiness was to create a little Cinderella inspiration wedding board. The result? Well, I like it… if an explosion of pretty in pink and pale blue are your favorite wedding colors, then I think you may too!
