Today’s moody Old World wedding inspiration from Julia Park Photography is sure to leave you breathless – or at least in the mood to watch Chocolat! With dark neutrals juxtaposed against natural light pouring through oversized windows, we get a sense of relaxed elegance in a romantic Old World setting. There is purpose and intentionality in every piece of this story, and we are loving the wispy, natural wedding flowers prevalent throughout. Airy but anchored, these images are a dream and you’ll want to read on for more details below!
From the event planner, Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events: There’s something inspiring and captivating about a simple yet refined style. Bringing together the perfect ensemble of colours, textures, themes and accessories, and crafting a truly timeless, vintage, and sensual memory. Between an aura of elegance and a delicate display of charm, there is a universe to be found within the subtlety of the specially selected pieces which form the perfect style. Something majestic, something grand, something “sacred”, would be what motivated us as the main inspiration for our latest styled shoot, “Sacred Memories”. And in creating a style befitting the theme of sacredness and elegance, we’ve encapsulated something beautiful through the romantic interplay between color palettes, thread and texture, and a venue’s environmental ambiance.
Simple, exquisite, sharp, and altogether sensual; embracing and gracefully uplifting the senses. To earnestly capture such a “sacred” aesthetic, our stylists had selected the Hartman Gallery, a chic, stylish and altogether vintage venue and art gallery in Whitchurch-Stouffville, in a perfect countryside locale just north of Toronto. A vibrant creative space in a demure and quiet location, the Hartman Gallery would be the perfect fit to encapsulate the essence of what’s sacred in our style. And in piecing together a sacred and memorable theme, our stylists had brought together a unique and delectable ensemble of style points and inspirational elements which crafted the crux of our styled shoot’s irresistible charming quality, and created a breathtaking, unique, and unforgettable wedding theme.
From fond memories of winter snowfall conjured from aged wood, and the irresistible appeal of jet black, our chosen color palette would play on the enduring allure of light and darkness, and earthen hues to complement the evocative interplay of various colorful tones; from butter, beige, mocha, charcoal, and black. To this effect, our stylists had made judicious use of the Hartman Gallery’s countryside fireplace and bar, its dining hall and various quarters of the immaculately kept venue to emphasize a sacred and solemn style direction. Between the use of aged wood for the styled shoot’s dining table, to the elegantly arranged wooden elements that appear all throughout the shoot, we had captured something which echoes time long past, yet presciently present in our modern day.
For the floral arrangements, we had a light and crisp bouquet sent from Leaf and Bloom, arranged lovingly throughout the venue. Atop the aged wood, the wedding day flatware would reflect the theme of charcoal black, with a specially selected design care-of Tableauscapes. Continuing the theme, the inclusion of a charcoal black and elegantly fashioned cake design provided by Rococcoa Butter would be a styled shoot centerpiece, and the magical arrangement of stationeries, calligraphy, and a beautiful wedding ring box by Brooklin Paper Co., JW Lettering, and Cynthia Findlay respectively, would craft a magical, romantic, and altogether classic wedding day design. So cozy up with us by the fireplace, have a seat, and share with us a tale or two, as you immerse yourself in something beautiful, elegant, and everlastingly enchanting. Come with us, and share in these “Sacred Memories”
