Citrus Shoot in Paris, France

VISION

With a company name like “Bisous” it’s clear I get a lot of inspiration from my husband’s homeland and how can you not?! So much history and beautiful architecture in all crevices of the country but in particular, Paris, where my husband spent much of his life. I decided that while in Paris, I would put together a shoot to capture the beauty of the city. Although it is such a populated city, it is regulated that buildings can be a certain height so not to impede the view! We decided we would shoot ontop the city at Montmatre, overlooking the gorgeous city. This area of Paris is so soaked in history, it has its own museum (definitely check it out if you have a chance)! Being named “The City of Love”, it’s clear why with all its winding cobblestone streets, large ornate doors, shuttered windows and traditional Parisian rooftops. To play off the typical cloudy Paris weather and slate blue roofs, we incorporated beautiful yellow and orange citrus hues. Captured by Whitney Heard, we brought on Floraison to create divinely delicate floral arrangement and bouquet. The warm tones and blooms were perfectly mimiced by the cake and coloured desserts by White Lotus Cakery. Hair and makeup by Ludivine Francois highlighted the romantic lace dress provided by The Lace Atelier, and organic stationery by Little North Company. Being able to shoot at the historic Moulin de Galette Restaurant was such a dream and a perfect backdrop. Until next time, Paris! A bientot!

Jenn + Andy's Vibrant Fall Wedding

Have you ever gone to a party where you weren’t officially invited as a guest but you tagged along but somehow you felt right at home? Well this is exactly how it felt at Jenn and Andy’s wedding! Everyone else was of course invited as a guest and I was just there as a vendor but the entire night was just so fun and their guests were also equally fun! From the second I met these two, I felt the chemistry not only between them but the love just filled the room they walked into. What can I say? I fell for them. No in all seriousness, this wedding was just a dream to be apart of!

The wedding theme definitely played off the natural elements of the room - accents of gold and warm mauves and reds (also in the stage drapery), vintage feel like a modern spin. The florals included lots of trailing greenery and bud vases to maximize table space while giving the room an intimate and fun feeling. Their adorable pups was of course there to join them in the processional - absolutely the cutest! One of my favourite moments of the day was keeping the special performance secret from the couple themselves! They had a song by Wax Mannequin (don’t worry I hadn't heard of him either) as their processional… and he came out and actually performed that song live! On top of that, he stayed for dinner just ‘cause… amazing!

Thank you to this lovely couple that make this process so fun! The love between all your guests and between both of you is infectious. Wishing you all the best!
