This styled shoot features an ice cream-coloured palette to complement the world of plants and wildflowers which provided poet, Emily Dickinson, with a constant source of inspiration and companionship. Glaze and John Events produced the “Poetry of Flowers” editorial, which can be seen in our “Literary Love” issue on newsstands now, working with an elite team of Toronto-based creative professionals.

Paper & Poste designed a custom watercolour-inspired floral motif that was incorporated throughout the shoot, from a stationery suite displayed with matching pastel-coloured chocolates adorned with flecks of gold to a large-scale backdrop produced by Event Graffiti. The tablescape was designed with a summer wedding in mind, our team was particularly taken with the Pinterest-worthy upside down ice cream cones from Nadia & Co~ that function as place cards.

Nadia & Co~ also created an exquisite cake with hand-painted flowers for the shoot and lollipops with edible fleurs, while Sweet Sammies Ice Cream Sandwich Co. designed a colourful plated dessert along with striped ice pops and slushies —a perfect cold treat after a sun-soaked ceremony or long night of dancing!

Artiese Studios was on hand to beautifully captured all of the details on location at Berkeley Fieldhouse. You can learn more about the shoot, including the Emily Dickinson poems that speak to the different elements, in our Summer/Fall 2015 issue (Eastern Edition), available for purchase here.

Turkish Designer Dilek Hanif's intricate couture works have been the secret of red-carpet stylists for years. We love the structure of her Spring/Summer 2015 Couture collection (reminiscent of Chanel collections from years past) and the sorbet shades of both the dresses and the adorning floral appliqués. The caped evening gowns are still fresh for a black-tie event, particularly the embroidered ice blue look, a modern-day interpretation of Grace Kelly's famed gown from To Catch a Thief.

Opulence reigns in this styled shoot inspired by the story of King Midas, a popular figure in Greek mythology who is known for his power to turn everything he touches into gold. With the myth in mind, producer and creative director Diana Pires of Truly Yours Planning designed a shoot that was filled with golden touches and decor fit for royalty.

The ceremony set up features abundant floral displays by Ooh La La Designs with soft purple, blue, champagne, and mauve-coloured blooms dusted with gold. Gold Louis XVI chairs from Detailz Chair Couture frame the aisle and are adorned with custom pillows from Megan Wappel Designs that serve as ceremony programs.

Simply Beautiful Events Décor Inc. created soft gold chair covers for the shoot that pair beautifully with gold Chiavari chairs and a mirrored table topped with shiny gold tableware.

And what would a royal celebration be without cake? The Wedding Cake Shop designed a four-tier, ivory masterpiece with touches of gold to match the “Midas” theme. Amsis Photography captured all of the details on location at Toronto's One King West Hotel & Residence.
