Cherry Blossom Bridal Styled Shoot

The winter season is finally over and the summer season is well underway. I kind of skipped it all with how busy I was and now it's already August. Where did the time go??

In Ottawa the cherry blossoms come out for a 2 week period in May every year. With the funky weather we had early this year really screwed things up and made is so the blossoms were delayed and not as great this year.

Thankfully with the help of some wonderful vendors we were able to put together a last minute styled shoot with the cherry blossoms before they died. The Dominion Arboretum has a beautiful grove of trees that bloom with beautiful pink, white and dark pink blossoms. They look FANTASTIC! 

When planning the shoot we wanted something that was simple and elegant to not overwhelm the blooms. We chose a satin dress with a fitted skirt and a beaded top part of the dress. Pairing it with simple earrings and a bracelet helped to give it just a little bit of sparkle. Thank you to La Maison Bridal Boutique for providing the dress, veil and jewellery. 

To continue the simple bridal look, Shannon from SD Beauty chose to do a side hair do with cascading curls. It turned out amazingly and worked so well. They make up was the definition of classic bridal, Shannon did an amazing job! 

Our models Caitlin & Jordan are an actual married couple so it was awesome to capture real love and true emotion. 

Images are by me of course, it was such a great styled shoot! Enjoy the gallery!
