This colour palette of deep reds, golds, deep jewel tones, whites, blush and lots of greenery is just beautiful for a winter wedding! Romantic, cozy and full of life, we could just feel the love in the air and of course all the excitement for the gorgeous images about to be captured! We had so much fun planning and perfecting all the small details that made this shoot so different. I really enjoyed putting together a polished, beauty look that would pop with this palette! I wanted it to stand out as  naturally glamorous using neutral and blush tones with gold to highlight Kara's features. Leah Craig hand crafted the gold, hanging geometric globes and they turned out so awesome! Lori Karpow hand made this beautiful, fresh garland that wrapped and surrounded the sweetheart table our lovely newly-wed models Kara and Adam sat at. And how about that suspended, upside down cake made by Chrissie!!! I have never seen that before and man did it look cool, not to mention smelled absolutely delicious. Stephanie's flower arrangements, colour combos and how she placed it all together was absolutely breathtaking, I could not take my eyes off them! Jessica nailed the stationary design integrating the geometric details and organic vibes we were all loving! Erin rocked the hair for both of our models! Kara's big, voluminous braid was so dreamy and structured just perfectly,  especially with the organic, green head piece she incorporated designed by Stephanie Karpow. Big thanks to Valentina’s Bridal for the oh so glamorous, vintage blush wedding dress Kara rocked! Huge thanks to Denise Belanger for capturing all this beauty and Leah for coordinating it all as well as the Arlington Hotel in Paris for allowing us to shoot in their romantic venue right on the water. I am so thrilled with how this all turned out, we truly are the ultimate wedding dream team!

Ladies Night! DIY At Home Wedding Prep Spa!

The big day is creeping up ever so quickly!! Money is tight, pimples be coming out of no where and the dark circles are just a little more visible than on a normal day. Stress, excitement and all the emotion paints our faces with all those special little bits were not so happy to see. So how do we take care of these little surprises last minute with out paying out the wazoo at the spa? Keep reading!! 


Gather the girls for a spa night in to refresh, brighten and prepare skin ! Grab the comfies, slippers, and a great play list! You can always incorporate some veggie and fruit trays into an event like this for everyone to enjoy,  food makes everything better!! Honeydew and watermelon are delicious and an amazing, natural way to reduce water weight! The key is to stay super hydrated, inside and out so get a big ol' jug of H20 , slice up your favorite fruits to throw in there for some anti oxidant action! Lemons to refresh and any kind of berries are  great add ins! For a hot drink, grab a box of green tea bags! Not only can you use these to make a yummy beverage packed with anti oxidants and anti aging benefits but you can also use green tea bags as a de-puffing eye mask when dipped into cold water. Create your own at home face mask that will give you the glow with some fresh strawberries and some talc free baby powder. Blend up 4 strawberries to 1/2 tea spoon of baby powder for about 2 minutes and apply to skin for 5 minutes, rinse off with warm water or mineral water. Strawberries have so many benefits that cleanse, tone, protect and treat our skin! Pop those green tea bags on your eyes while you kick back with your mask on for the most relaxing experience.  Last but not least, grab some left over pineapple from the fruit tray and rub all over your lips to soften, throw on a little Vaseline to lock all that juicy goodness and vitamin c in and your set! 
Gotta love a good girls night!
