What a wonderful way to end the week with a bridal inspiration feature on Burnett's Board that my friend, Meg, from Arroh and Bow planned and executed.  Here's a little snippet of the inspiration behind this shoot:

“Inspired by wild love, food lovers and all things local to Canada, this styled elopement set the stage for what it means to plan a wedding that is truly your own. Meg Brunetti, from Arroh and Bow, dreamt up this alternative elopement inspiration to highlight couples who aren’t afraid of embodying their bold style on their wedding day!

A forest green Arroh and Bow infinity gown for a wedding dress, a bouquet made by the groom whilst perusing Ottawa’s charming Byward Market for the best eats before reading vows amidst the wilderness of the Gatineau Hills will get any indie-couple excited about the possibilities of bringing all the things you love into your wedding day!”  See the full feature here!

We are battling jet lag this week, and it's beating us up so far.  So we were super honoured to have our 'Botanical Rhapsody' bridal inspiration planned and executed by Toast Events, featured on Artfully Wed this week! 

"Our concept took shape while walking through the perennial fields at our shoot location, picking flowers on a whim, pairing natural blooming vines, exposed greenery, post-bloom flowers – while designing onsite. We focused on combining organic, earthy and raw materials with ethereal highlights."

Qatar will always have a special place in our hearts.  Hayat spent much of her first year of life here.  She helped us see life here with much more focused and appreciative eyes.  Her first giggles, words and steps were taken here. This makes my heart swell with an abundance of rainfall-like emotions.  Gratitude.  Humility.  Thankfulness.  And a mission.  To continuously look at life through her innocent, curious, unbiased eyes.  Full of wonder.  Reckless abandon.  Millions of possibilities.  Always with a smile and a laugh ready to be bellowed out by any joke.
