Where to even begin with this lovely duo. I first met Steph a few years back when she stood in one of her bestfriend’s weddings as a Bridesmaid, alongside some the sweetest gals. We hit it off almost instantly + I always remembered wonderful she was. Fast forward to years later, you can imagine the thrill of receiving the most excited email from Steph, letting me know that she was officially engaged to the love of her life Carlton + that she wanted me to capture it all!
With inspiration galore from every wedding website around, this gal’s spot-on boho inspired style was soon starting to come to life, with every gorgeous detail she selected. Steph’s unique Maggie Sottero gown from Bridal Couture was a sight to be seen on this gorgeous Bride. Accented with a cathedral veil + floral headpiece addition by Forget-Me-Not Floral Boutique, Steph was transformed into the dreamiest modern day boho Bride.
I arrived early that morning to find Steph along with a few of my favourite all time Bridesmaids, sipping mimosas in matching pastel coloured robes, getting the last finishing touches on their hair + makeup. The backyard at Stephanie’s Parents was the perfect backdrop for her Bridal details + where she would soon step foot in to her Maggie Sottero beaded gown. After a blissful morning it was off to meet Carlton at Lakewood Park for their 1st Look.
Steph + Carlton shared a few private moments + embraces together, before boarding the bus with their entire Bridal party to head out to Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery, to get the day started!
Just a few details that I especially LOVED about this day: the mixed lavender + neutral tones of the Bridesmaid dresses, the Rose Gold wedding bands + the addition of the Vineyard chairs against the beautiful rustic setting at Sprucewood.
After a super fun Creative Session, it was time for these two to tie the knot in an outdoor Ceremony, before their very closest family + friends. Tears of joy were shed by both Steph + Carlton, it was so endearing to clearly see that these two each hold such a special place in their hearts for one another. They exited the aisle with happy tears + the biggest smiles, and made their way into their jaw-dropping gorgeous Reception, decorated by the amazing Allure Events. Not one detail was overlooked, so I was definitely giddy with excitement to snap everything in site!
As the sun began to set, Steph + Carlton toasted the night away with their guests, they laughed, cried + were inseparable the entire night. I could have watched these two bask in their newlywed glow for hours 🙂
Steph + Carlton I adore you both + cannot wait to see what your already incredible 1st year of marriage has in store for you! xo
