Glam roof top engagement in toronto
“The cityscape views from atop the Lavelle in Toronto are truly breathtaking on their own, but the talented folks at Luxe Proposals had a vision in mind for a glam rooftop proposal filled with candle light and florals, 13 stories up! It’s enough to sweep any lucky gal or fella off their feet!
The romance of this engagement shoot in undeniable. Our favuorite part? Who can say no to a pretty pair of Manolo Blahniks and a gorgeous new dress for the occasion! We’re channeling our inner Pretty Woman here (minus the whole hooker part, but no judgement!) and excited to share all the must-see details with you captured by Mango Studios.”
ETHEREAL WIND WEDDING INSPIRATION
“The Brides Boutique Planning Agency looked to the easy breezy qualities of Mother Nature for this ethereal wind wedding theme. Balancing modern elements with natural, the tablescape features a mix of fresh greenery and lavender floral centrepieces; hand-painted metallic mini cakes; and agate place cards. As an ode to the wind theme of the shoot, invitations were cleverly embossed with clouds. Drawing inspiration from Filipino bridal designer Mak Tumang, the lavender cake by Fruitilicious Cakes flows with sugar flowers and hand-painted vines gradually making their way to the top. Find the entire “Whisked Away” style shoot in the Summer/Fall 2017 issue of Elegant Wedding Magazine.”
Le Soir, The Evening by Johnothan Ball
“Our Spring style shoot was titled Le Soir which was inspired by art nouveau pioneer Alphonse Mucha. We wanted the lines of the models and bridal gowns to echo the art and iconic style of french art nouveau’s organic lines and textures, while keeping a clean sophisticated modern take on bridal style. The Berkeley Bicycle club provided us with a truly unique backdrop for our images.
The original home of Toronto’s Gooderham family, famous for creating Toronto’s Historic Distillery district and the Gooderham and Worts Distillery. Originally built in the 1890’s the mansion is full of organic textures and one of a kind hand made design elements. The two bridal gowns generously provided by Sash & Bustle on Queen Street, designed by Daalarna Couture and Karen Willis Holmes helped create a feeling of timeless elegance with a hint of modernism. The floral arrangements generously provided by Hello Midge Flowers created the lush garden that framed our models. The images inspire the modern bride as well as showcase one of Toronto’s most fabulous, historic and intimate venues.”

ART GALLERY OF HAMILTON WEDDING INSPIRATION BY KAYLA YESTAL
We are such fans of Kayla Yestal and what a pleasure it is to see this stunning shoot featured on Joy Wed’s blog! The details of this shoot are truly exquisite and Kayla’s photography style is what dreams are made of. Full of rich tones, depth and a keen attention to detail, you always know with Kayla comes perfection!
From photographer Kayla Yestal: For this shoot we were inspired by blending sleek, modern elements with more romantic and wild components. Shooting at the incredible Art Gallery of Hamilton allowed us to start with a blank slate of sorts, complete with clean lines, white walls, and high ceilings. From there, Danielle from Shaw Events was able to bring in elements such as the loose feminine florals from Roses and Twine Floral Studio and the more classic looking invitation suite from Flourish Calligraphy. To pull everything together, we styled the bride in a simple and elegant Elizabeth Dye gown with a lot of movement to really bring in that passionate and romantic quality. The whole look was tied together by her messy but stylish ponytail for a more modern take on a traditional up-do. Our resulting shoot really blended everything together, resulting in the perfect wedding for a more fashion forward bride.
VICTORIAN WEDDING INSPIRATION FOR A MODERN BRIDE
Who says a Victorian wedding can’t be modernized? We are swooning over this creative! The Berry tones mixed blissfully with gold for this Victorian wedding inspiration shoot captured by Madison Rose Photography at Ball’s Falls, Niagara. Caught between fall and winter, the outdoor scene features lush burgundy florals, a rustic table for two, as well as wooden signage and a vibrant red settee. To push the Victorian era, the redheaded bride wears a delicate gown by Karen Willis Holmes from Sash & Bustle.
Willow Springs Winery; Destination Wedding Inspiration
Finding the words to describe our excitement over today’s wedding inspiration feature is a challenge! “Perfect” may just sum up every last detail in this wedding design by wedding planner, Rainbow Chan Weddings, and photographed by Therese, owner of Artiese Studios in Ontario, Canada. This wedding planning team chose Willow Springs Winery in Ontario, Canada to host their bridal collaboration. The bright, natural light on the grounds paid compliment to various setups; including a wedding ceremony site that boasted a floral design arch by Mums Garden, a wedding reception table doused in details such as menus by So Pretty In Print and napkins wrapped in hand-dyed silk by Silk and Willow. There is even a dessert table covered in all types of edible decor crafted by Sweet Regards by Daniela. And let’s not forget the added touch of a bridal swing covered in a floral palette that is sure to make a bride feel like the princess she is on her wedding day. Tie in a soft up-do and natural makeup by Fancy Face and not one but two wedding dresses from Sash and Bustle, this bridal inspiration is a wedding dream come true.
Moon Light Inspiration
“There was a full moon that day, and it was a welcome addition to the photos! The style of this shoot incorporates traditional opulent elegance mingled with clean geometric lines and shapes. Elegant, but not ‘too much’. Modern, but still soft. A harmonious balance between the two usually quite opposite styles.
The floral arrangements are relaxed and organic, which juxtaposes nicely with the ornate antique details in the tablescape. We also think it’s important to not upstage the beauty of the venue too much – important to find a good complimentary balance.
We hope this shoot inspires the romantic, traditionally-inclined yet relaxed couple!
A SEA OF LOVE: COOL, BLUE WEDDING INSPIRATION
Inspired by its beachfront locale, this Toronto styled shoot incorporated water-hued blues into every element as far as the eye could see. With the goal of inspiring swells of emotion, this shoot was soft and beautifully romantic, including as few details as possible as to not distract from the emanating passion.
Modern Day Factory Girl on The Wedding Co
“Our main objective was to create a timeless yet unique, elegant aesthetic with thoughtfully placed pops of industrial accents to bring vivacity throughout the space. The juxtaposition between the airiness of minimalism with the weight of the industrial elements created a striking balance of delightfulness and charm.”
“To play up the minimalist motif we selected a stunning plain white dress with a timeless silhouette that any fashion blogger would adore. The open-back and train add dashes of drama and modernity without the use of ornate embellishments. The jewelry was kept to delicate pearls to contrast against the structured neckline of the gown. We also styled the dress with a translucent white sash to add some softness as an alternative.”
Kailey & Michael at the Kortright
“Kailey and Michael are one the kindest most easy going couples i’ve had the pleasure of working with. These high school sweethearts started dating when they were just 14 years old and were even voted couple most likely to wed.”
“Their beautiful forest wedding was simple and easy going but filled with diy details and personal touches throughout, such as a Dr Seuss reading of “Oh the places you’ll go”. Their entire wedding took place outdoors, followed by dancing under bistro lights and featuring a bonfire with s’mores for dessert.”
Fashion Magazine: Stylish Canadian Weddings
“Inside of seven months, the two whipped up an August affair at the groom’s family home in Whistler B.C.”
“Choosing the perfect dress was definitely a challenge therefore it only felt right to select two. I wanted an elevated classic look for the ceremony and then a fun party gown for the reception. Kate chose an Oscar del la Renta from Kleinfelds in Toronto for the ceremony and a Theia gown for the reception [from] Sash and Bustle.”
Junebug weddings feature by Olive Photography
“Between the terrariums, metallic finishes, and industrial vibes we’ve noticed trending in wedding décor lately, we couldn’t help but notice one thing they all had in common: gorgeous geometric shapes! Shot in an Ontario apple orchard, this candlelit elopement shoot by Olive Photography captures the ultimate geometric wedding inspiration.”
“Gold accents and organic florals are perfectly natural juxtapositions for this elopement inspiration shoot’s terrariums, wooden ceremony arch, and geometric desserts!”
