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!

Colourful Boho Wedding - Sneak Peeks C+H

The day after I got married, I got a call for wedding planning for the exact venue I got married in. I was actually on a mini-honeymoon but they sounded really cool so I was excited! Before we even had the chance to meet, Chelsey and Holden booked me while being at home in Nunavut. When I finally got to meet them in person, they wore clothes as if they were going hiking... and I realized these two were not only in love but an adventurous pair. The bride mentioned since the wedding was going to land on Cinco de Mayo, perhaps a colourful wedding would be fun but changed her mind to appease the idea of a typical formal wedding colour palette of blush, gold, ivory... but after meeting them, I knew a colourful, whimsical wedding would be perfect for them! I went ahead and put together a colourful mood board for them anyway and they loved it! 

This wedding was just so much fun to plan - all the colours, traditional Jewish components, the band, the inflatable duck (although this did cause me a little bit of stress seeing the bride so high up in the air with heels on)! 

Thank you so much to this couple for being beyond trusting of me to be able to do what I do best!

City Rustic Wedding at Malaparte

Shannon & Matthew's Beautiful Rooftop Wedding

Colour palette: Jade green, navy blue, grey, white & gold
Style: Modern & rustic


After meeting, Shannon and Matthew, I knew I would have fun planning their big day with them! Shannon was meticulously organized and knew exactly what she wanted but such a dream to work with. She wanted to bring a little countryside styling to the urban setting of their rooftop wedding. We made sure to utilized all the beautiful spaces the guests got to explore from the bright lobby where we set up a selfie backdrop with laser-cut names of the couple, the stunning white rooftop tent ceremony, the outdoor elevated cocktail area and the sleek sloped ceilings of the main reception room.

We added the rustic flair to the trailing ribbon on the bouquets, the grey textured linens, the wood box centrepiece containers, the harvest wood chairs, garlands on the guest tables, the dessert station decor, the succulent favours and the home-made cookie favours. 

You could see how Toronto's modernity was infused into the wedding as well from the cocktail furniture, the gold cutlery, modern letterpress invitations, the immaculate food and the view from Malaparte's rooftop of King Street West. 

One of my favourite details was the fact that the bride, Shannon, actually made the entire dessert table and the cookie desserts.. that didn't last past salads!

Thank you for trusting me on your wedding day and I wish you both all the best!
