This styled shoot’s palette includes all the colors you’d find in your everyday citrus favorites. Highlighting the rich orange of kumquats, it’s paired with soft pinks and yellows to create a soft, warm yet bright tone. This is shown in the invitations featuring kumquat vines, the floral bouquet, and centerpieces that are so wildly unstructured and the little details on the tablescape. To balance things out naturally; there was no shortage of lush greenery provided by Rikki Marcone Events.
Set in the quaint courtyard of the McLean House, we show that in the midst of Toronto’s bustling city, brides can still plan a beautiful outdoor wedding, transporting their guests into an intimate garden wedding filled with romance in the air.
Window Floral InstallationLeading to the second floor there was a little nook of a windowsill with the perfect amount of light floating in. As the bride sat on the ledge she was surrounded by blooms and vines. The florals resembled the vines that grew on the walls outside of the estate that had found its way inside to frame the bride for an angelic moment.
Airy Wedding GownWhat really ties everything together is the brides gown by Catherine Langlois. The peachy pink color differs from your classic white and offers a softer touch. The light material adds to the overall airiness, perfect for a playful and free-spirited bride and can we talk about the pearl details at the back of the gown! These delicate details are paired perfectly with The Loved One’s bridal accessories.
