ALSO FILED UNDER > Wedding Color Inspiration, Wedding Décor, Wedding Photography, Real Weddings

This winery wedding from Julie Nicole Photography is over the top with details as beautiful and warm as the couple! We love hearing from the couples featiured on the Swish List...they know first hand what worked best for them while planning their wedding and Gia kindly sent in a little advice for our readers:

'Our wedding day was beyond perfect and it exceeded our expectations. If I could go back in time before the wedding I would tell myself to enjoy every moment of our special day- take a deep breath and smile! Would I plan something different? I would definitely make sure my groom and I have a private moment for the "first look." Make sure to tell family and friends this is your moment and privacy is very much appreciated. My favorite memory of our wedding is definitely seeing all of our family and friends having a great time on the dance floor- feeling everyone's energy exuding love & happiness! My advice to any bride would be to get your groom involved in planning your special day. My husband and I planned our wedding ourselves, side by side as a team; and the planning experience was invaluable as an exercise in working together as a partnership and foundationally defines who we continue forward to be as husband and wife.' -Gia, Bride.

Congratulations Gia and James!

Rhonda + Bob by Robert Nowell Photographer

ALSO FILED UNDER > Wedding Color Inspiration, Wedding Flowers, Wedding Photography, Real Weddings

These brilliant yellow florals and the beautiful decor should brighten your thursday afternoon! I'm also inspired to look for my roasting sticks and set up our back yard fire pit to roast a few marshmellows!  Thank you to photographer Robert Nowell for sending over a few images from this lovely Niagara orchard wedding!

From the Photographer: My very first wedding at Kurtz Orchards was perhaps one of my favourite weddings I've ever done. Bob & Rhonda are an easy going couple, both work in real estate and their first priority for their wedding was that it be fun for their guests. I'm pretty sure everyone was already having the time of their life but when the staff broke out the chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows to make s'mores at the fire pit tables I was really impressed. A beautiful and elegant wedding reception meets summer camp! Love it!! Kudos to the wonder staff at Kurtz and to you Rhonda & Bob. Also special thanks to my assistant Lauren Valvasori!  Florals by the lovely and talented Marsha Howe of Marsha's Floral Design

Rob + Danielle’s Lookout Point Wedding

ALSO FILED UNDER > Wedding Color Inspiration, Wedding Décor, Real Weddings

Today's wedding inspiration is brought to us from behind the camera of Serena Swan Photography.  Classic and traditional decor with a soft palette turn this venue into a romantic backdrop for this lovely couple.

Rob and Danielle's wedding day wasn't just about them, it was about family and friends. After they each spend a morning surrounded by smiles and sometimes tears they made their way to the alter where they said "I do" in a traditional catholic ceremony. Danielle's gorgeous colour pallet and details was such a joy to capture. Florals by Ooh La La Designs of Fonthill filled the room with soft colour and fragrance while the venue itself lent a rustic feel. Guests enjoyed the views of Niagaras wine county while they sipped on local wines before a delicious dinner was served by the Lookout Point Staff.

Congratulations Rob and Danielle and thank you for sharing your beautiful Niagara wedding celebration with us!

Backyard Whimsy by Sugar Photo Studios

Jade and Finn’s ‘intimate backyard wedding’ inspiration came from the growing trend, and want, for a beautiful and unique wedding but with a more approachable setting and feel. It is intended for the couples who truly want to celebrate their love with their nearest and dearest, in a setting emphasizes their love. To create this, the team chose a forested backyard scene to display the whimsical altar, cigar bar, beverage station, candy buffet and reception. For the décor, they chose vibrant and fun colours that go hand-in-hand with the fun and upbeat feel of the wedding! 

The wedding takes place in a 3 acre 'backyard' in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada's famous wine country, during our warmer months. Pinks, Oranges and purple accented by gold adorn the scenery. The drool-worthy menu is made up of cute-sy and yummy food items, complete with a rice krispie wedding cake! The bride and groom are dressed to compliment the style of wedding, upscale yet casual. 

As a small and intimate wedding photographer, this is truly a wedding of my dreams! It is jaw-dropping-ly beautiful, it is unique and it is definitely inspirational! It is a fun, intimate, backyard wedding with over the top inspirational details. Please enjoy the photographs; It has been so exciting helping to plan and photograph this wedding and I truly hope inspires some beautiful, heartfelt ‘backyard’ weddings.

John + Hilary   Wine + Roses

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

A Gatsby inspired wedding with vintage details graces the blog this morning... complete with a sweet love story! 

From the Photographer, Julie Nicole Photography: Hillary had a sophisticated, classic, elegant, vintage style that I just adored.  She had her two sisters as her bridesmaids and it was very sweet and special.  John is one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and he kept Hilary and all of us laughing the whole day. It was a beautiful, fun, stress-free day full of love.

John and I met and became friends while attending The University. After college we both moved back home, John to San Diego and myself to the Bay Area. We rekindled our friendship a little while later and decided to give long distance a try. After 3 years of long distance I convinced John to move to the bay. John and I got married exactly 1 year to the day of our engagement. We were married in the chapel on our college campus. It was very special to us to go back to the place where it all began.
