The season of engagement is supposed to be FUN and filled with joyful anticipation! If you’re not feeling that way right about now, we have a stress free guide to wedding planning for you, but also, these retro engagement photos should help! The planner, As You Wish Weddings, went with a playful theme based on this millennial pink motel that the bride & groom couldn’t not enjoy. If you gave us champagne pancakes and a bouquet of fresh blooms, we would be smiling too (just sayin’).

The overall vibe we envisioned for this shoot was retro-chic, playful and fun, with mid-century modern elements – featuring a newly-engaged couple in love on a Sunday brunch date.
Motel Restaurant in Hamilton, Ontario (about an hour’s drive from Toronto), with its pink walls, turquoise floors and neon signage, was the perfect setting for our couple as they enjoyed the restaurant’s showstopper menu item – champagne pancakes. Decadent and delicious, the stack is topped with whipped cream, raspberry and pink champagne coulis, and to top it off – edible gold flakes!
After brunch, we envisioned the couple would enjoy a slow stroll through their neighborhood, stopping by the local flower truck for some fresh blooms. They’d end their afternoon discovering some cute spots right in their own neighborhood – like a fun wall mural, as well as a local laundromat that shares the same vintage, nostalgic feel of the restaurant.
