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.
Rock n roll, baby!! From an early age, I was always certain of two things – I really loved loud tunes and fun, off beat florals! So this shoot was as sweet as my favourite song – Totally chimed into my deep-rooted love of music, especially if it’s got a little edge.
A quaint, funky place setting for a backyard session in The Junction neighbourhood. Built in collaboration with lovely, talented Michelle – founder of Magnolia Studios.
Held at Mint Room Studios last month – interior designer Christine Dovey + stylist/art dealer Alessandra Salituri lead an interactive workshop focusing on the art of home styling. Feminine + fluffy florals handmade by THORN.
Toronto based photographer, Danica Oliva hand-selected an amazing team of female entrepreneurs for a bridal session. So naturally, when she asked THORN to join the crew – I was grinning from ear to ear!

The ever-so talented Emily (Emily Lauren Photographer) the nailed every detail!

Last month I blogged about our ‘Times Like These’ collaboration with a fun team of local vendors. 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.

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!
