A warm sunny day at Ashbridges Bay
Last week we had the pleasure of working with a number of amazing vendors on a rose gold themed style shoot at Ashbridges Bay. We collaborated with makeup artist Sonia Kang, photographer Thomas Zitnansky, florist Therese Guidolin, and Sinfully Sweet by Sonia J. With the combined efforts of these vendors and the entire Whim Event Coordination and Design team, the outcome was nothing short of stunning. The day was sunny and beautiful, and Ashbridges Bay was packed with people, all enjoying the gorgeous weather. The team arrived in the afternoon and quickly put together a simple, but stunning sweet table.
With the initial theme development by Whim, event coordinators Alisha and Michelle decided to execute their vision in a park-like setting at Ashbridges Bay in Toronto. The table decor and beautiful mock invitation made by Michelle was meticulously set up underneath a large oak tree near the beach, with Thomas Zitnansky expertly using the natural light to complement his photographs. One of the table setups included a soft rose coloured satin tablecloth with a delicate pink lace overlay. The second table setup featured a white satin tablecloth with a rose-sequined tablerunner down the front and sides of the table.
Despite the number of passersby and disruptive wind, the team of vendors managed to pull off a phenomenal shoot. The shoot was a wonderful experience, with many spectators stopping to say hello and ask about our shoot. By the end of the day, we all enjoyed some of the yummy sweets, had fun taking many photos, and had tons of ideas for our next collaboration. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome, and we have many great photos for the new version of our website (coming soon!). Stay tuned for more pictures from this lovely styled shoot, and please check out our awesome team of vendors!
On Sunday October 12th, Michelle and I had the pleasure of working with Nirvanie Srikishun Photography to do a lovely fall engagement shoot for our clients, Ashley Lawan and Ben Constable. Ashley and Ben are a sweet couple who have been together for over 5 years. Ben proposed to Ashley in July of 2014 with a lovely sunset proposal outdoors at a conservation site. So for their engagement shoot, Michelle and I envisioned a simple fall picnic with the beautiful Toronto Music Gardens as the backdrop.
Since the shoot was scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend, Michelle and I handcrafted a cornucopia that featured sunflowers and green berries. The colours popped beautifully and set the stage for the simple picnic look that we were envisioning. A few helium balloons, a wicker picnic basket, a simple beige picnic blanket, and champagne with flutes completed the look. While the set up was simple, Ashley and Ben provided all the romance needed, and you can feel the love in every photo.
This lovely couple is getting married next month, and we can’t wait to experience the joy of witnessing their union. We had a great time working with Nirvanie, too! She captured awesome shots of our couple, and managed to capture a few of Michelle and I being silly behind the scenes. Nirvanie specializes in lifestyle and fashion photography, and we look forward to working with her again in the future. In the meantime, enjoy the photos from the shoot, and stay tuned for our behind the scenes video!
