Totally loving the style of Toronto-based wedding photographer, Samantha Ong.  Here the vision
was to create a romantic and rustic wedding shoot with a whimsical undertone. This whisper soft color palette fuses blush pinks, whites and creams, as well as hints of gold-- the style ideal for the romantic, down to earth bride who loves flowers, ruffles, lace and everything pink!

 The Details:  The Trillium Trails Banquet & Conference Centre is a Bavarian style lodge with impressive grounds showcasing lush hills, an adorable foot bridge over a pond, a stone foot path and plenty of blossoming trees. The grounds focal point is a deluxe white arbor, spanning the ceremony space. For this shoot the wedding professionals decorated the main alter space with a custom made paper garland showcasing white doilies, white ruffled cones, and pops of pink textured flowers.

The table was dressed with a medium weight lace overlay, with a pink tablecloth peering through the intricate lace pattern. The romantic, whimsical feel was carried through the place setting which included ruffled edge bone china plates and lightweight stainless steel cutlery. Wine and champagne glasses sparkled and added a touch of elegance to the rustic table.
Avoiding the single centerpiece design, check out the 3 pink-gold mirrored vases and 3 clear glass lantern vases featuring a variety of soft, luscious flowers, creating a casual cascading centerpiece. The table was anchored by a lovely floral table-number frame, and mini-frames with guest names for a personalized seating experience.

The stationary included a circular rose-print style menu card with charming font. The invitations were stunning with a white invitation card dressed up with a gold painted doily overlay, elegant font, and a blush pink envelope with a rose pattern peek-a-boo interior. The whimsical program cards featured a pictogram wedding party on a rustic cardstock. The ‘Just Married’ sign continued the floral theme and was a perfect touch of whimsy for wedding photographs.

The cake sat upon a magical ruffled edge cake stand. It featured a soft blush ruffle layer dusted with a hint of gold on the edges sitting beneath a white pearl beaded layer topped with a flower with delicate pink petals and a jewel-like gold center.

The wedding dress with beaded sweetheart neckline and a-line tulle skirt provided an effortlessly dreamy silhouette. The bride wore elegant drop pearl earrings, with a matching pearl necklace and double pearl bracelet, not to outshine the classic, singular stone engagement ring.  The bride’s beauty was enhanced with soft natural blush lips, pink hue eye shadow, mascara and liner to enhance her eye shape, and an overall warm wedding glow. Her hair was styled down with loose, natural curls allowing bounce and movement.

The floral headpiece focused on mini pink roses to frame the bride’s lovely face. Her stunning bouquet featured peonies, roses and other soft florals creating a blush-peach-pink-rose palette. The greenery added interest and brought back the rustic outdoors feel to the bouquet wrapped up with white lace and pearl pins.

From beginning to end the ‘Blushing Bride’ wedding shoot focused on romantic, whimsical elements in a gorgeous rustic setting. The blush pink, white and gold wedding palette is a classic, beautiful scheme suitable for a bride who enjoys a romantic rustic atmosphere with delicate ruffle and lace touches.
