Pink & Gold Enchanted Forest Shoot.

Sometimes, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives you a fairy tale.

We had the amazing opportunity to participate in a magical photoshoot at the end of May.  The location was Fernwood Hills which is hidden away in the woods outside of Komoka, Ontario.  This venue is absolutely enchanted.  From wooden benches for your guests to sit on during a rustic ceremony to dancing under the stars all night, this venue has it all!

For this shoot, we used our new exclusive, romantic skirt from our private collection.  We paired it with our blush, sparkly top.  This is part of our separates collection, so we can mix and match top and skirts together!

Rosemary from Time 4 Flowers created the perfect bouquet for this enchanted forest photoshoot.  The colours were a perfect match for the blush & gold theme and it smelled delicious.

It was a pleasure to meet Anna from Devorah Beauty for the first time at this shoot.  She created a flawless look in our model, Sarah's makeup.  Liz from Hairstream Beauty swept up her hair in a romantic up-do.

Stephanie from Bright Eyes Bakery created the most stunning naked cake and macaroons.  To be honest, this was the first time I had ever tasted a macaroon and they were DELICIOUS!!

Falling In Love With Fall..

It’s hard to imagine that fall is almost here on a hot day like today, but it is.  Time moves so quickly these days.  I love fall.  I love everything about fall.  I love new beginnings and new schedules.  I love that it kicks off our wedding season at the store.  We’ve got some great bridal shows lined up & I so look forward to meeting new brides, seeing old ones & chatting with some of my bridal industry friends.  I love cool evenings & wearing boot socks & boots.  I love drinking hot apple cider & watching the leaves turn colors. 

Our store opened in fall.  This fall we’ll officially adopt our two children & become an official, legally binding, never going to change, family.  September 19th can’t come soon enough!

Here’s a little fall inspiration.


Sarnia Bud Gowan Bridal Show.

It's my favourite time of year! The official kick off to bridal show season for Once Upon A Time Weddings always starts with Bud Gowan's bridal show in Sarnia.  I'm super excited because we'll also be deputing our new line of wedding gowns, Fiore Couture.  This line is sold exclusively in CANADA at our store!  That's right.  Love it.
