Okay, so after the venue, onto the second most important thing 😉 THE DRESS...
I love shopping. I could do it all day. I did NOT love wedding dress shopping 😂 maybe that’s because I didn’t know what I wanted and only a very clear idea of what I DIDN’T want. I went to three boutiques in total and tried on many different looks but found that so many of the styles I thought I’d love, and do love on others, just didn’t suit me. Lace was a no. Spaghetti straps, a no. Boho a no no. I despaired and felt like a child playing dress up in everything I put on.
I felt a glimmer of hope when I pulled on the very final sample dress I’d ever try on. It was simple, free from any embellishment or fuss and a style I considered classic. I’d love to say that I immediately thought it was “the one” but actually, I really wasn’t sure if it was. It had invoked tears from the bride tribe and even I got a lump in my throat when I caught myself in the mirror and thought I FINALLY looked like a bride but truth to be told, I was scared to say “yes to the dress”. It’s a big commitment isn’t it? What other time in life do you put so much pressure and hang so many hopes on one outfit? As I stood there looking at it, with 7 pairs of eyes looking at me, Tori from the @bluebowbridalcompany asked me the most helpful question which made up my mind: “if you keep on looking, what else would you be looking for?” and I knew then that I’d be looking for the dress I was wearing and repeating the process at many more bridal shops to end up going full circle. If you’re struggling to say yes, ask yourself that question and see how you feel. Oh and make sure you visit @bluebowbridalcompany for the most wonderful dresses and sweetest service 💙

Is there anything more beautiful than layered textures of ivory lace and silk? Just remember... no matter what dress or accessories you choose for your wedding day you should still look and feel like YOU.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Our first real winter weather is coming down today, and I've been bundled up with Netflix & blankets all day.
I hear traffic outside, I see people posting about the road conditions, and I can see the untouched snowy sidewalks if I peek outdoors.
My daughter took a long bath, I'm pretty sure my son is still in pajamas, I napped earlier, and my only goal today is to enjoy some hot tea in a short bit.
Yesterday was meetings & editing & bookings. Tomorrow will be the same. But today's snowfall was just begging for relaxation and cozy, comfy clothes and fluffy socks and warm, sleepy kids & kittens underfoot.
When your wedding design tells your unique love ❤️ story beautifully 👌
Jennifer Kennedy-Maksymiw Owner of and Head Stylist from @tuftsandtoile in conversation about styling the beautiful wedding Joanna & Andrew at Berkeley Fieldhouse wedding venue Toronto.
Q: When you first started creating the wedding vision with Joanna and Andrew, what were your first thoughts about the potential of this wedding?
A: Joanna & Andrew came to me with an idea, a few pinned inspiration images online and open minds. They loved the design of their wedding invites so much, they knew they wanted to see more of that design reflected throughout the wedding decor. The invites were an awesome starting point, and just from seeing those few pinned photos, it really made this couples style clear to me. Luckily for me, it was a style I really loved and was very excited to plan around. I pulled some of the colours for their #weddingpalette right from those invites and created the bulk of their paper goods with similar design details, including the table numbers, seating chart cards, reception table place cards and reserved tags for the first few rows of ceremony seating for their guests. The invite design was also used in their beautiful wedding cake by LeDolci.
