Frances & Mike

A few weeks ago, Linna and I invited Frances Lam, and Mike Kostiuk to model for a beach wedding. The easy bohemian theme was inspired by the concept of a loose, unstructured celebration of love. Working with Frances and Mike was an absolute treat, and personally as someone who loves the water, it was awesome to work on Woodbine Beach.

Frances was dressed in a vintage embroidered shift from Pretty Freedom, a vintage store in Kensington Market, which complimented Mike’s easy going linen shirt and open vest from a wonderful bespoke menswear store Green Shag. Linna also prepared clam shells for the ring and I DO cuff links from Green Shag. We brought a picture frame, made a wicker “I DO” sign. We wanted to create a delicate bouquet that would last as long as the photographs, so Linna created a custom one out of branches and paper.
