What a blast this collaboration at Stevenson Farms was!
I kept this shoot close to my heart for weeks, as I busted with excitement! This team of 14 are some of the areas finest wedding professionals – a total Dream Team, they really nailed the vision, and the extraordinarily beautiful Mon Salazar was an absolute treat to work with!
It all started with the Venue. After a tour this past spring at Stevenson Farms B&B and Harvest Spa I fell in love. The farm itself, located just north of Alliston, situated down a long tree lined driveway, is a local historical site. Many years of restoration projects transformed this breathtaking property to a Bed and Breakfast, Spa Retreat, and Wedding Venue.
I immediately added it to my bucket list of wedding venues I need to shoot at. The team from Stevenson Farms also attended the South Simcoe Bridal Show, and that’s where the vision began.
The coral, pink and gold wedding palette, inside a romantic outdoor farm wedding was my vision. Coral is one of my personal favourites, and perfectly complimented by romantic shades on pink and gold. I wanted a vintage feel, true to the venues style, with some rustic elements that are very much on trend in our area.

I wish delicious scents could come across the interweb… These rustic cut, handmade bars of soap topped with dried florals are a charming thank you gift for your guests. Check our Jen Kleinpaste’s artistry at Bridlewood Soaps.
