THE BLUSH CREATIVE ✨ So incredibly inspired and still blown away by the thoughtfulness, authenticity and talents of Alex @blushandbowties Tellie @huntandgather Scarlet @scarletoneill and Paige @studiobicyclette. You ladies are truly game changers for the industry and words cannot describe how encouraging it is to see the love you have for your craft and the support you have for one another. Thank you for speaking to my creative + business spirit and being so real in sharing your stories with us. So much respect for each of you! @whatjanecreates so glad we got to experience this weekend together and rooting for what’s coming ahead of you! Wishing all the ladies who were also there all the best on your journeys! .

ARIEL & TOMMY ❤️ . Photo Credits: Carly at @purpletreephotography . What a beautiful capture! It was a true winter day but no crazy snow could stop the love of these two. I’m glad they have this moment to show how beautiful they are together. Ariel is so sweet and has such a keen eye for design. Tommy is solid and has a true heart of servanthood to all those around him. Through every season, may you remember the love you have for each other as you start on this new journey of marriage! . . . #artod2 #realwedding #winterwedding #torontowedding #married #marriage #love #wedding #beauty #hisoneheronly #lovestory #loveauthentic

ATTIC GOLD 💍 It all starts with a promise, and sealed with an adornment to say - I will cherish you, forever . . Not only are they Toronto-based, but they are custom built on principles of longevity and simplicity by design. My current swoon is over their grey rosecut diamonds 😍 . . @atticgold it was so nice to meet you at @wedluxeshow! . . . #atticgold #customjewellery #personalized #engagementrings #rings #weddingideas #weddinginspo #weddinginspiration #weddingdetails #simplicity #longevity #cherished #promise #solidgold #greyrosecut #diamonds #toronto #torontowedding #engaged #brides #torontobrides #bridetobe #swoon #marriage #vsco #vscowedding

ARIEL + TOMMY ❤️ . Got to meet with these two yesterday and can’t believe it’s officially one week away till they get married! . When I saw this cotton bouquet, it made me think of Ariel, so I couldn’t resist to present these as they welcomed me into their soon-to-be home, while tying up some of their final wedding details! The BEST part? They were preserved with care so they are intended to last forever - as I wish the same for their marriage . There’s something about holding something you find beautiful while being held by someone that finds you beautiful that says, “You are my beloved.” #artod2 . . . #realweddings #torontoweddings #torontobride #torontogroom #wedding #engagedcouple #engagementring #ring #cottonbouquet #modernbouquet #eucalyptus #winterbouquet #forever #everlasting #love #beloved #thatsdarling #beautiful

ODYSSEY OF LOVE | SHIP OF DREAMS 💭⚓️ . . “Your story isn’t calm. The road has been chaotic at times, filled with detours and rain and loss so sudden, and soon. Sometimes the bliss was so elevated your heart could hardly hold it. Sometimes it was maddening to have and to lose. You learn soon enough it hardly ever goes as planned — gentle, easy and smooth. But that my friend is what makes you fascinating. You have something to tell. Something you’ve walked through. Something wild. Something courageous. Something true. You’re made of stories within stories within even more stories. Those quiet depths of you.” - Victoria Erickson . .

🙈🙉🙊 . Thankful for these two ladies I get to call roomies. We each are our own busy so it’s always nice when we can get together, especially to celebrate the good times. I don’t get to say it enough in person, but as different as we are in personalities, there are traits that are similar I can admire in both - the spark of the hustle, the glimmer of creative minds, strong leadership initiatives and deep down sincere hearts. Thanks for accepting me with my food photo craze and taking this photo with me hehe.. Here’s to our first year of living and a cheers to our next! . . . #thankful #roomies #celebrate #goodtimes #differentbutsimilar #laughter #smiles #hustle #creative #strong #sincere #girls #toronto #vsco #vscotoronto #exteriordesign #white #pink #ootd #october #latergram

When we don’t respect ourselves, we can easily be dishonest with others. This allows for little transformation in our lives. We have to practice speaking things we want to be TRUE if we want to see it happen. . . . #mondaymotivations #inspiration #cafecancan #interiordesign #floral #restaurantdesign #pink #torontorestaurants #torontofoodie #foodie #vsco #vscocam #vscodesign #vscotoronto #october #latergram #thatsdarling #love

The first frost has hit Toronto! ❄️ As the days become darker and colder, we must gear up - not only in our layers of clothing but also in our minds and hearts! Life ain’t always easy but let us build on our mental toughness and share our heart struggles, to keep us in the light of hope. It may surprise you to meaningful conversations and life-giving chats. Reach out to someone today, give them a word of encouragement, listen to what they have to say - you may discover something new about that person and yourself! . . . #fridayfeels #firstfrost #vulnerability #meaningful #lifechats #accountability #knowledge #mentaltoughness #heartstruggles #light #hope #encourage #listen #allwhite #outdoors #design #marble #stripes #patio #torontorestaurant #torontofoodie #foodie #vsco #vscotoronto #cafecancan #frenchbistro #motivation #inspiration #lovely #thatsdarling
