HOLY… Is this bride’s style game strong or what?! Let me start off by saying, there was a pool + private cabanas at this wedding! Held at Toronto Event Centre (Beach Paris) patio deck, Dalia + Corey shared their vows at sunset on warm summers night. Starry-eyed from love and the chic paradise oasis of the space – you hardly feel like you’re in downtown Toronto. Shot by the ever-so talented + local Angie Choi (Eyekahfoto).
THORN was delighted to build florals for the first-ever wedding (what,what?!) at this unique venue! Hold on tight, this is going to be a long blog!
I’m a west-end Toronto gal – so I don’t visit the east side all that often. I know, I know – alllllll the way across the city!? It’s a sad excuse, I am aware! Especially when there’s so many beautiful gems on the other side – like Archeo.
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!
Couples can plan their heart out when it comes to their wedding day. Down to every 15 minute interval – but you know what?! Life is unpredictable as heck! Much like who we fall in love with. You just gotta roll with it – And for this couple, that’s exactly what they did! (Spoiler alert: the groom was injured on their wedding day)
On February 17, 2018 – Steph + Conor weren’t going to let a little accident stand in the way of proclaiming their love for one another. A few weeks shy of their wedding date, the groom became injured while playing basketball – which resulted in a boot-like cast, crutches and at times, even a wheel chair. Shot by talented Tamara Lockwood, Steph + Conor’s small, intimate wedding had a big, adorable story!
As a wedding florist, you get the chance to build the magical day so many little girls and boys dreamt about… Their wedding day!
If you’re like me – you’ve had the lucky opportunity of getting picked as wedding florist + bridesmaid on the same wedding. Not once, but twice has this happened in my career. It’s amazing, stressful and so so so heartwarming! But since, we’re just a few days shy of an anniversary – I’ll chat about my oldest gal pal’s wedding day at Hart House (October 2017).
Meet the Mr & Mrs! Aren’t they so adorably in love?! Talk about a match made in heaven!
Like every couple, every wedding day is different. Some brides follow the old tradition of not seeing their soon-to-be husband until they walking down the aisle. While others choose to include the relatively recent wedding addition known as a “first look” or “the reveal” pre-ceremony.
Because I couldn’t have said it better myself – “If you want to see two people who are full of life, hilarious, and pretty much always have a smile on their face, look no further than Mary, and Alex. Their touching card readings brought out the emotions of the day! Then they let it all out at the Warehouse venue, which included an amazing choreographed dance!” – Twenty 5 Films
As a wedding florist, I absolutely love seeing the professional shots from a couple’s wedding day. Captured so perfectly by Twenty 5 Films, this wedding film really lets you relive Mary + Alex’s magical day!
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.
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!
