the greatest review to receive!
this summer we showed Mike and Michelle their wedding film at a private 'premiere' event... it was a perfect evening and a lot of fun for family and friends to come together to re-live the day! Mike set up the camera following the movie and we chatted with a few of the couple's friends and family...
dreaming of warm summer nights and movies in the backyard!
it ended up being an evening of lovely conversation between friends-we chatted work, dreams and enjoyed a few items from the menu... so good! i hope these few images are inspiration for the bride, the florist or the designer... enjoy!
we had the perfect backdrop, Mimosa flowers having dressed up the front porch of Ravine Winery. a venue that is so charming all it needed was a few glowing candles and some fresh flowers. aaaaaaand a platter of oysters from Tide and Vine...
Ravine... you continue to be one of my favourite places to photograph. you... with your vines and the rustic buildings... your outdoor bread oven and the backyard firepit. the lawn that is friendly to the occasional ping pong game and the passing around of a soccer ball. continue being fabulous!
join us next sunday at the vintage hotels wedding show! we'll be at the pillar and post near the back of the room! chat with our team, watch a film, check out our albums and enter a fun little GIVEAWAY!
a little wedding planning inspiration for y'all today! feast your eyes on these beauties... rustic and warm, simple with sentimental meaning, and sparkling!
all created by the talented My Bouquet
happy planning friends!
i have a giant chalkboard wall in my coffee room. it's where i start my day. filling up my cup and reviewing the board. on it there are lists of things that need to get done, there are inspirational quotes... and usually a few love notes from guests. i also took some time in the beginning of the year to write down a few goals. one of them was to 'shoot for artists'... i didn't know what it meant when i wrote it down... but i gave it space on the board and it has organically evolved. i have recently teamed up with artist and writer extraordinaire, jennifer, to interview and photograph local niagara artists.
The Abstract Project: Exploring head-space and studio-space of Niagara artists.
A project created by photographer Nataschia Wielink and artist/writer Jennifer Elliotson which endeavors to expose the heart behind the work of artists in the Niagara region. It involves many curious and probing questions, thoughtful answers, amazing art (obviously), and lots of coffee.
our very first muse, tamara, lovingly welcomed us with a warm cup of coffee and gave us a tour of her home-her home is a gallery of paintings that she's done and a few that have been gifted or purchased because they inspire. Jennifer tells Tam's story much better than i... so be sure to visit Cherries in the Sun for the first edition of : The Abstract Project
