A purple-themed Thunder Bay Wedding

Colours.... How does one pick their Wedding colours amidst all the choices out there? You may have a colour scheme in mind, say blush pink and soft gold, and then when you go dress shopping,, can't find too many dresses in your colour choice. So a colour switch this shades of PURPLE or as a little 2 year old was heard to pronounce  ....pooooiiiiple. Can fake flowers look real  .... absolutely!. These flowers are all faux botanicals  ( in plain English, silk-like flowers).

Bridesmaid bouquets designed by The Camellia. 

The Bride's Bouquet - of Hydrangeas, peonies, roses, statice, ranunculus, berry sprays and freesias. 

Hours of labour go into designing a Bridal bouquet like the one above. Shape, colour, texture all play an important role. Here at the Camellia, our focus is on designing the most realistic looking bouquet for you. We start with the best quality botanical flowers. And the best part, you can use your bouquet in your home after your Wedding. 

We do boutonierres and wilting or crushing and you can have them ahead of the actual Wedding  day. can't do that with fresh flowers....

Miniature deer horns worked into the boutonierres - a special request from the Bride. 

Table centres - a perfect mix of rustic and soft. Birch slices and Babies Breath with a square of rough burlap. 

Venue :    .  Venue is the Royal Canadian Slovak Legion Branch #129 at 801 Atlantic Ave. Thunder Bay. P- (807)623-3354

Couple lay in coffin for Engagement shoot

What sort of Engagement shoot are you planning? 

Most couples like to go back to the place where  they first met, or to their favourite hangout, or fishing spot, or the Restaurant where they had their first meal together.

They pose with cute, Pinteresty wooden sayings between them. 

Flowers are usually involved. 

But not too many use a casket as a backdrop.

Take a look at this couple: click on the link. 

Yes, death is part of Life. What do you think? 

Would you use a casket in your Engagement shoot?
