Water Front Wedding

Water Front Wedding

Since I moved up here three years ago I had always dreamed of planning a wedding right at the waters edge and with the help of several other people I was able to make this dream a reality. The inspiration behind this shoot was to play of the whimsical elements and the laid back wedding style with an edge.

This style shoot was a fun one and I love being able to collaborate with some inspiring women that are great at what they do.

A lot of couples are moving away from the traditional type of wedding and are really trying to put their own spin on creating something that is uniquely theirs. Brides + Grooms look to create a unique setting by cutting down their guest list, making it a very intimate setting and by bringing in items that are personal to their relationship to enhance the experience.

In this shoot, we wanted to play off a Bohemian vibe while bringing in our own unique flare from being on the Bay. Having our couple go down to the beach and hang out on a pink SUP is not what you would call a traditional style shoot but it totally works.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT MYSELF

I decided to start a blog so I can share all the fun and exciting things that I am doing! It is going to be a mash up of weddings, events, travel, food and everything that sparkles. 

After 5 five long years living and working in Toronto, I needed a lifestyle change. So I decided enough was enough, packed by bags and headed North to Collingwood for a simpler life. Collingwood was a little crazy to most people…who am I kidding…everyone! Moving to the sticks….where is Collingwood?…were just some of the comments that I received. It was a crazy concept for most. 

Starting my own events company with no friends or family in the area was, and still is daunting! But there was no way I was going to let that stop me! A quote that I live by everyday is "Design the life you want to live" which is what I set out to do. 

Design the life you want to live

I have now been living in Collingwood for two years and haven't looked back. It is still really hard some days but what makes up for it is living in one of the most beautiful places in the Canada. 

Look at this blog as a photo journey for everything that inspires me!
