Marry Month of May Wedding Theme

Today’s blog post is borrowed from an earlier guest post I did for Bloomed to Last by blogger Kristi Richardson entitled “The Bridesmaid Luncheon“. “Marry Month of May” is a play on words from the original poem by Thomas Dekker, … Continue reading


Over the weekend we felt the approach of a wet winter… well in Sydney we did. I was happy to get into my warm office this morning to this ahhh-mazing wedding that celebrates the rain. I adore how this couple play with the rain and allows it to only enhance their style and fun through the wedding shoot. The talented Naomi V Photography shot these beautiful photos and captured the couple’s fun personalities and the excitement of the day.

Megan and Brad had almost been together for 10 years when Brad popped the question to Megan, whilst they were on, what Megan describes as a “Christmas holiday from hell.” It doesn’t sound great but Brad’s proposal wasn’t only filled with love, it also had a sprinkling of magic it seems.

Every time I see this wedding, I am reminded of how beautiful French-inspired decor is. Something about those crisp whites, warm creams and blushes, mixed with crystal and gold are perfect for creating a mighty sophisticated event. The couple, Casey and Adrian, played up the theme as well by incorporating some great details into their wardrobes (I can’t get over the top hat!). Shannon Kennedy, the wedding planner, whose “modern romantic” touch certainly made the couple’s dreams really come to light, has more to say about the couple:

“Casey and Adrian were married in Toronto, Ontario in November 20, 2011. Hosted in the historic King Edward Hotel, their intimate ceremony and reception was filled with friends and family from around the world. With only six weeks to plan, Casey and Adrian’s wedding was full of romance and personal details. Mazel tov!”

By the way, is that venue not absolutely breathtaking? According to Toronto…
