A Stuning Vintage Inspired Winter Wonderland
“For this magical shoot, the talented planners at Confetti and Co. wanted to create a festive-winter feel without being too over the top with the “red and green Christmas” theme. Elliot Tree Farm was the perfect backdrop for this wintery shoot. We love all the blue shade and cozy vibes! Captured by Jessica Imrie Photography”
Enchanting Ruby Manor Inspiration with Old World Beauty
“Today’s enchanting manor inspiration evokes a sense of Old World romance through its bold ruby hues and elaborate climbing floral arrangements. There’s an airiness about it too, contrasted perfectly by the sexy and almost mysterious mood. From the bride’s unconventional gowns (doesn’t that last one look like a waterfall?) to the lunar-textured charcoal cake, these images from Purple Tree Photography will have you hooked!”

Broadview Hotel Wedding Inspiration
Mango Studios put together a romantic styled shoot at The Broadview Hotel – “I was inspired by the hotel’s rich deep textures and colours. I wanted the entire photo shoot to feel intimate, cozy and relaxed. I would keep it small and simple, all I needed was two people in love, a delicate winter bouquet and beautiful wedding gowns to bring my vision to life.”
Stunning Style Shoot at The Richmond : Your Soul
“Stripping away any excess and allowing the organic beauty of love to shine through is the basis of this fresh, romantic style shoot. Created by the beautiful minds at Love Laced Weddings & Alicia Jenelle Events, the shoot is set at The Richmond, an art gallery in Toronto that quickly became the perfect canvas for this sweet synthesis of soft shades, wooden accents, and wispy florals.”
Simple & Organic Wedding Ideas
“Focusing on the “getting ready” portion of a wedding day is as important a part to your story as the remainder of the celebrations. It’s often the first time in a while that the bride gets to sit still and think about the events to come. When Toronto photographer WHEN HE FOUND HER was hosting a 1:1 workshop he bought on stylist SHAW EVENTS and florist BLOOM & CO. to create the story. Following the bride getting ready, was an intimate ceremony. “We wanted to tell the story using layers, fabric and the uneven stoned texture of the mill as a backdrop.”
Elegant and Modern Wedding Style
“Between the space and silence lies an infinite world of inspiration and imagination. Unraveling the elegance and style embedded in the simplicity of minimalism, uncovering a beauty between forms, discovering a treasure trove of priceless gems, of the eternally beautiful and majestic, all hidden in plain sight.”
Whimsical Inspiration in the Middle of a Forest
“What happens when you combine a gorgeous muted-tone color palette, a whimsical boho design, and a majestic woodsy setting?

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.”

Camille and Andrew celebrated their wedding day in a multi cultural way and had few requirements to celebrate their day the right way. All they wanted was for they’re day to be adorned with Lavender and to have happy chill vibes. The venue, The Burroughes, was a perfect back drop for their relaxed contemporary wedding.

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.
