Danique and Dane eloped in Truro, Nova Scotia at sunrise late last fall, and Styled in Lace featured their misty morning elopement! It was a chilly misty morning, and the ceremony took place in the presence of only 8 family members, at the lake where they shared their first kiss. They shared a first look in a steamy farmer’s field, and then walked through a rocky forest of greenery and waterfalls for their photos following the ceremony. She is a fellow photographer, Danique Rowsell, so needless to say, I was nervous of giving her everything she envisioned. The last time I photographed her Danique and Dane, was when their baby boy Xavi was born, remember this sweetheart?
Dane is in the mining industry, and loved the idea of a non traditional stone, so he proposed with a beautiful custom Sunstone ring made by Resa Wilkinson, which is a member of the Feldspar family, and is named for its warm shades of gold, orange, reds and browns that sparkle like the sun. It is said that its energy brings all potential life from within the Earth. It is a Stone of Leadership – of personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. Reflecting the qualities of light, and brings openness, benevolence and warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others. Because he is in the mining industry, he isn’t able to wear a metal ring himself for safety reasons, so his ring is made of black silicone.
Danique’s beautiful floral design was created by her good friend Jill of Miss Fancy Farmer, with plant dyed silk ribbon from Littlest Flower Farm, and her bridal gown sash was stunning Oh Dina! custom piece. The energy on this misty morning was so uplifting, and filled me with so much inspiration, they couldn’t have picked a better day to become husband and wife.
