Swish Worthy

Made with Love

ALSO FILED UNDER > Swish Loves This!, Wedding Color Inspiration, Wedding Décor

It's winter across the entire country and this styled shoot comes to us from Rachel Peters Photography in PEI! I'm diggin' the natural details, the pop of green and who doesn't love their hot cocoa with marshmellow hearts! On top of ALL of that... it's a good day whenever there's a horse involved! 

The inspiration for this shoot and the colour scheme both came from an adorable angora sweater; hand knit by our bride's loving Grandmother for her wedding day. Inside the sweater, she sewed a tag with the words “made with love, by Grandma”.  

Located on the beautiful northern shore of PEI, the Green Gables Heritage site in Cavendish was chosen because it is the setting of Prince Edward Islands greatest love story, Anne of Green Gables. We used the romantic backdrop of lovers lane and the charm of the Green Gables Heritage House as our main location for this shoot. We showcased the talent of islanders by bringing in handmade items, made with love,such as knitted mittens; afghans; cross stitching and quilts; all of which speak to the tradition and simplicity of the Island.

ALSO FILED UNDER > Swish Loves This!, Wedding Color Inspiration, Wedding Décor

Well they've done it again!

This week, Pantone released their 2015 Colour of the Year, and it's sure to appeal to brides and grooms of all styles, taste and wedding season! We can see this paired with blush pink for Spring, gold for Summer, copper for Fall and a slate blue for Winter, providing an opportunity for couples getting married any time of year to enjoy the lush, richness of Marsala!

"Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors." -www.pantone.com

Visit the old red barn at Honsberger

ALSO FILED UNDER > Wedding Venues

Christine and Rob's rustic wedding this summer was perfectly suited for the barn at Honsberger Estate Winery! You can view more images from their celebration here! 

The barn is decorated a little differently this weekend-It's getting ready for the Christmas Handmade Market and if you've never been... you need to schedule your vendor meetings and your cake tastings around a little visit to the Winery in Jordan.  Leave the planning for the afternoon and gather your bridesmaids and do a little shopping-for christmas, for the gals... for you!  

See you there friends!
