I have a tradition for the New Year at OED - and its is a portrait session I do with my fab team! This time around we did a dramatic #Dolce&Gabbana style shoot. We filled the studio with flowers, accessories and coffee and just spend time together, as well as take beautiful photos of course.

The same as our company's style, this shoot was classic mixed with a bit of sexy. We loved combining the blacks and whites, adding the soft pastel roses and modern glistening accessories. The Classic, The Glam, The RockNRoll and The Dapper one -  all captured in the most perfect way.

This is one of the most romantic places to travel to in ontario, there have been studies that have shown that niagara on the lake is one of the most popular places in ontario to either have a wedding or elope in! How cool!

This beautiful area is not just about the vineries and the orchards, there is a lovely town with a big clock in the middle and so many boutiques to look in and explore! When holding a wedding in Niagara in The Lake you can always have the option of outdoor, with the beauty and the nature that is available that is always an option!

Fall Florals!

Now that summer is almost at an end we can start thinking about the wonders of fall and the beautiful colours that we have to look forward to! Everyone gets excited for fall colours, especially when it means you can pull them out of your closet! Floral arrangements for fall are also amazing, it just adjusts the colours you use! You can use colours you like ad want to use at any point in the seasons but these are known for being fall colours! There are lots of plaids, you can incorporate plaid in any arrangement or centrepiece!

There are a couple colours that really stand out in the fall time, there are dark oranges and reds and deep browns, more earthy colours are trending this fall! The weather starts to get cooler and the colours get deeper instead of the summer colours from the previous season that are all vibrant and bright! Outdoor weddings can still be achieved and they can have a wonderful tie in with nature, they are still amazing, you just might have to add some heating lamps at night time because the fall tends to get cooler around when it starts to get dark out!

I love fall and personally can not wait for the colours and the feel of the leave falling off the trees making beautiful walkways of everyone!! The colours are just amazing everywhere you look!!

Modern Minimalism: Wedding style!!

Sometimes the less you how is better! Minimalism is an amazing style that is for those who love a good simple colour or style and would like to show it all over the wedding or event you are hosting! Having a minimalist wedding is very easy you really just have to stick to one colour, usually white.

To pull of the minimalist look you need to have as little as possible or make it look like there is as little as possible out (make it deceivingly detailed), there can be cute decor like lights and florals but mainly just one colour of floral, the trend in 2016 so far has been to use green and greenery around, lots of succulents, lots of geometric holders and containers to fill the table spaces with. There has been a trend of having clear glass as well, there is a way that you can make the table look flawless by adding a little amount of decorations and just making it personal.

The overall appeal of the wedding has to be minimal if you are going to try to achieve this. This can also be cost effective, you wont have to buy as many supplies to create the biggest wedding ever. With the brides and grooms you can also achieve the look of minimalism with simple dresses and colours, a simple tie or bow tie for the men is perfect and thats all you need! For the bouquet you can keep it to one colour, maybe a pop of colour or just even a simple white bouquet with hints of another colour from your wedding in it would be perfect! The hair styles and trends of the times can also make a big influence on what you consider to be minimalist. The simple tied back hair with a detailed piece in it could be perfect for the whole attire! It depends on what type of look you are going for and it really is a person preference, you have to be in love with your day, don't try to impress anyone else!

Peach and Grey colour scheme!

Peach is a very spring and summer colour! Especially with it being peach season in ontario, peach is the perfect colour for a nice summer wedding! Pairing peach with a grey colour is the perfect way to explore a subtle colour but still have the classy feel of a neutral wedding! Having a colour theme for your wedding is great but you can stray from the colours once in a while, you can often throw in some greens and some blues that will look amazing when they are all paired together!

In a colour scheme you can use peach decorations and some grey accents! Floral bouquets are amazing because of all the different tons of peach and coral can make the contrast between a white dress or black suit look truly stunning! having draping peach and grey fabric either over chairs or hanging from a wall will look classy and sophisticated! These are truly amazing This colour in the summer would be amazing for an outdoor wedding or event, using tons of subtle ad natural colours is great and makes for one amazing wedding!

Boat Weddings!!

Either you love boats or you are a fan of them but are not to fond of getting on one! There are solutions for you! Having a boat themed wedding doe not necessarily mean that you have to go on a boat to hold your day, it can be themed like it is on a boat; nautical accents give this vibe! The wedding doesn't have to be on a boat, you can hold the reception on a boat and have the wedding on a dock then move right over! These are amazing and the views you have and are capable of having an amazing time with your friends and family!

On the boat you can have florals and candles, beautiful fabric dropped and amazing to go with your theme! Or you can have a nautical themed wedding that can incorporate things from boats like anchors and wheels, things can be coloured like the dark blues and nautical colours with stripes and whites! The weddings that have nautical themes are amazing and can have tons of florals and tons of decorations!

Boat weddings and themed weddings are amazing and can have the best outcomes!
