Well, I’m pregnant (surprise, surprise) with a baby boy! So exciting!! Currently 30 weeks, witth only 10 weeks until his due date. To document my growing baby bump, Silver Linings Photography Co. & I spend an afternoon in Centennial Park Conservatory, Etobicoke.
THORN floral opened up June 1, 2017. I’d been meaning to write a blog reflecting on the last two years – the ups, downs, learning curves & growth of THORN. And here we are – A month overdue and blogging on a Saturday night. Maybe that gives you an indication on how things are going… Busy, as heck!?
Leading up to THORN floral’s 2nd anniversary, I had the pleasure of hanging with the lovely & talented photographer, Emily Suzanne Harris.
THORN connected with Olivia of Liv Chic Events when working together at Drysdale Tree Farms last wedding season. I was delighted when her invitation made its way into our inbox, because I love creative collaborations with local vendors! And I especially love the winter rustic vibe of this styled shoot. The ever-so talented Emily (Emily Lauren Photographer) the nailed every detail!
Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of hanging with the lovely, fun & talented Rebecca Wagler of Wee Three Sparrows. She is a Toronto based wedding & portrait photographer. We spent the morning chatting about life, our growing businesses, florals, photography & travel.
The styled videography + photography shoot was held in the unique, industrial Jam Factory T.O. The theme around the shoot was this romantic couple embracing their first dance.

After shooting a gorgeous wedding together last season (2017) – the sweet, talented & world-travelled photographer: Emily Michelson – reached out to THORN floral to collaborate on this vineyard shoot. THORN said – Cheers!
This dreamy styled shoot took place on a vineyard located in St. Catharine’s, Ontario – once again Emily blew me away with her magic behind the lens!
Earlier this May, I had lovely morning with Tania Dee, of Verveine Studios. As a female entrepreneur, it’s so beneficial chatting with like-minded, hard working individuals. THORN floral is all about supporting strong willed, hustling women! Who run the world – GIRLS!
I’ve worked with Tania on numerous, gorgeous styled shoots last season. To date, all of our editorial collaborations have been published on established wedding blogs. This day we did something a little different.. Tania shot my little floral shop, which included the women behind THORN floral – myself, Victoria!
Who doesn’t love the beach – Seriously?! Shot within mid summer of 2017 at Scarborough Bluffs, a natural escapement within Toronto. The setting of this styled shoot was romantic & coastal chic. I’ll say it again & again, THORN floral loves collaborating with local, talented wedding vendors.
This shoot was published on Elegant Weddings Online Blog
We can all admit, that bus is seriously cool – right?!? The Photo Bus Booth is a mobile photo booth operating out of a 1971 Volkswagen Bus.
The owner (Mitch Brown) and I had been chatting about collaborating this vintage ’71 bus, with some fresh, THORN floral styling for some time. Then one Spring-like day, it finally happened! A local, Toronto team was recruited and we were headed to the beautiful grounds of High Park. Our intention was to create floral packages to be paired with the photo bus to offer our unique clients!
