A Colourful Muskoka Wedding At Taboo Resort

Shauna and Jordans stunning colourful wedding at Taboo Resort in Muskoka is enough to take your breath away. Ok so, yes, we think the flowers and decor are eye catching.. but just look at Shauna and Jordan, what a gorgeous couple! Shauna, along with her talented father, aka, wedding planner, Alf, have and eye for colour and design and it was a pleasure to work with them and all the enthusiasm they brought to each and every appointment. Shauna’s beauty goes far beyond what you see. Her friendly spirit and happy attitude shine.  We had loads of fun together, creating a colourful palette of jewel toned flowers and decor. The ceremony on the patio at Taboo was rich with Muskoka accents, including birch aisle stands bursting with brilliant purple orchids, pink roses, and fucshia peonies. The gazebo at Taboo accented with a luxurious arbour of coordinating flowers. No detail was overlooked including the custom dance floor by Dance Floor Decor. Friends and family danced the night away in the boat house as the sun set on the beautiful waters of Lake Muskoka. Our stunning images all captured by Muskoka photography gurus, Erika and Ryan of Rowell Photography. For always stylish decor in the Toronto or Muskoka regions visit us at www. rachelaclinge.com

Shabby Chic Wedding Creative

Its always fun to get together with a few of our wedding peeps to show case some wedding creativity with beautiful flowers and unique decor elements. I have always loved the idea of mixing the old with the new. In this creative, recently featured in Elegant Wedding Magazine, beauty comes with a twist of irony. I can’t help but notice how an old chair with a significant tear, can be paired with luxury crystal candle sticks, chandeliers and beautiful flowers to create the shabby chic feel of this shoot. Antique distressed decor elements mixed with new pieces seem to create a natural beauty and a style of its own. Designing weddings means flexibility with styles. Artistic impression often comes with blending various themes. Enjoy this whimsical combination of things from days gone by and be inspired to find a style that is reflective of you and things you love! A warm thankyou to Jennifer Klementti Photography for spending the day with us and capturing our vision and to Laura & Co. for assisting us in this project!Our stunning model Jessica was one of our brides. We thought she was perfect for this creative. Her natural beauty is hard to ignore and she looked radiant in the Ines DiSanto gown.
