Melissa Johnstone of Sugar & Soul Photography brings us this sweet, fairy tale inspired winter styled photoshoot, set in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Loosely inspired by the Brothers Grimm tale of Hansel & Gretel, this editorial embodies all of the fun and festive possibilities of the holidays.

We will leave the rest of the tale to Melissa, who tells it the very best:

"Heidi and Markus embark on a journey to get married on a magical winter day in the forest. Leaving breadcrumb trails behind them, (in case they get lost!), they discover a witches hut decorated in candy. They say their vows amidst an archway of candy, then head into the hut for their whimsical reception - complete with snow globes, pretzels, and lots of holiday treats and warmth by the fire!"

"As they walked through the trees, they left a trail of crumbs behind to mark the way." Photography by Sugar & Soul Photography.

Bride with braids holding a rich holiday inspired bouquet.

A beautiful, winter-inspired bouquet by Oak & Lily. The rich reds, oranges, and yellows stand out against the snow perfectly.

The roaring twenties in all their glory relived at the Teahouse Restaurant in Vancouver where vintage glam meets modern bridal style in an early springtime debut. The lavish creations of Jenny Packham bridal and Monique Lhullier and Lazaro bridesmaids add a perfect combination of luxury and glamour, qualities that are synonymous with the abundance and affluence of the 1920's.

We invited Kailey Michelle Events, Bisou Bridal to join us in paying homage to "Gatsby" week by combining 2013 style with all the extravagance and splendour of this incredible bygone era. The results were stunning ~ and vividly documented by award winning photographer Matt Kennedy.

"vibrant, energetic and expressive "..

Emerald Green wedding theme for 2013 colour board / styleboard

Click for Details ~ Photo credits & sources, below..

Alas, it was not mint to be! (lol) Pantone, the design world's authority on colour, has chosen its colour of the year from its 2013 spring colour palette collection and emerald green is the ONE!

Well, we were very close, predicting a "green" tone would be crowned 2013's wedding colour of the year but in the end, the vibrant, energetic and expressive emerald green beat its soft, elegant, and ethereal counterpart, mint.

How to use Emerald in your wedding theme?

Punch up brilliant white, elegant ivory or stylish grey with this super hot hue as an accent, or..

To make it super-current, pick between yellow or coral accents to a dominant emerald theme and create an extra chic 2013 combination!

Let the planning officially begin!
