It was a day filled with the last rays of summer sunshine---a dreamy concoction of iced tea sipped from pretty striped straws and served by charming little boys sporting colour-coordinated bow ties, bridesmaids' locks adorned with loose vines and flower crowns, cafe lights swinging lazily from the rafters of the Old Orchard Hall, parasols and picnic blankets for guests to shade themselves and lounge upon. All of it, the vision of the talented and beautiful bride Gemma, who is herself, something of a wedding industry specialist, having spent several years as an event stylist and currently, as the owner and lead stylist of Gemm's Hair and Makeup. And yes, the bride did create the delicate floral accents in the hair of each of her bridesmaids!
Here is part 1 of Gemma and Matt's stunning day. Please come back soon and join us for part 2....much more pretty to come!
Much appreciation to Yvonne Campbell for second shooting with me on Gemma and Matt's special day. All the talented wedding industry specialists who helped Gemma bring her dreamy DIY vision to life are listed below.
