I am always so thankful when I get the opportunity to collaborate with other talented women in the local wedding industry. Holly Lalonde from the Hollywood Salon & Spa put together this Winter Wedding Inspiration at Elements Luxury Camping in Renfrew. She did a wonderful job modeling along with her real life handsome husband of eight years, Danny. Kim Chenard from Crazy Beautiful Dresses provided the amazing bridal gown and the inspiring florals were arranged by Lisa Hammond-Nugent Floral Design.
“The property at Elements has such raw beauty! I was born and
raised when it was Storyland….so much history in that property!”
“Ever since I was a little girl I have been intrigued by cake decorating so after I finished my culinary training I took some classical and private decorating and gum paste design. I have been decorating as a hobby for the past 10 years on and off.”
The striking marble fondant wedding cake over pink with a merlot ribbon and lace topped with fresh flowers was created by Amy Nguyen.
In her signature style of floral watercolour invitation suites, Casey Snyder Design framed the beautiful calligraphy text with a gold shimmer painted shield, deep wine tones and soft pinks flowers and draping greenery. With a hint of watercolour on the edges, this suite fit the tone of the shoot perfectly. Also featured is a matching menu and place card design to finish the table setting.

The bridal arrangement consisted of soft pink stocks, pin-cushion protea, Brunia, ranunculus, anemone, spider Fuji poms, sword fern, asparagus fern and white limonium
When it comes to weddings I have no set price list because I order flowers specifically for each individual bride. Floral prices change seasonally. I strive to work with everyone’s budget.
