I'm excited to announce that one of my all-time favourite projects was published on Wedding Bells today! The theme of the shoot was inventive new ways to work flowers into your wedding and it was a collaboration with the Toronto Flower Market and many other talented artists who are listed throughout this post. You can check out the post to read all about the concept, or scroll down to see some of my personal favourite images. This was one of my first projects upon moving back to Toronto, and I considered it a wonderful welcome home present from my friend Natalie Petozzi, who invited me to get involved. Stay tuned for a behind the scenes post in the near future, but for now, read on!

Our location was the resplendent Holcim Waterfront Estate in Mississauga, Ontario. A special thanks goes out to Marisa Mercanti for coordinating things and making it possible for us to have such a beautiful backdrop.

All of the bride's dresses were provided by & For Love. In the photo below, our bride is wearing the Ines dress, while the bridesmaids are wearing an Alexander Wang dress and Tamara Mellon jumpsuit, both available at Holt Renfrew. Speaking of the bride and bridesmaids, we had three lovely models from b&m: Alice (our bride), Linnea and Jac (from left to right). All the girls did a wonderful job and wore the garments with grace.

The amazing florals were created by Jill Galucci of The Rose Mint. She is a true creative genius and I'm excited to collaborate with her again in the near future. In the images below, our bride is wearing & For Love's Geneviève dress.

Alice wears & For Love's Amy dress and a gorgeous wrist corsage by The Rose Mint.

This set of photos below features the Véronique dress and an awe-inspiring floral crown by The Rose Mint.

And finally, Alice is wearing the Dani dress alongside a cake styled with wildflowers.

This shoot was made possible with production and creative direction from Natalie Petozzi and Natasa Kajganic. My wonderful friend Jenny Boucher did the stunning art direction. The cake was created by Cake and Loaf Bakery and styled by Jenny and Jill. All shoes were provided by ALDO.  Alyson Kelly helped out with production assistance.  

I took care of the photography, makeup and hair, which was so much fun! But I would have been totally lost without the help of my assistant (and former bride!) Karly Boileau. Karly did everything from help me protect my equipment in the extreme weather conditions to setting models' hair in rollers. She was an absolute godsend and I feel so grateful that she helped out. Thank you, Karly.
