The inspiration for this moody shoot comes from the beautiful historic Greek Revival mansion of Willowbank, situated on a picturesque lawn hillside overlooking the village of Queenston, in Niagara. The mansion is an elegant example of the rural estates of 19th century wealthy settlers in Upper Canada, and is named after the grand willow trees that once graced it elegant grounds. We're in love with this venue, for both the architecture and the story behind it, so when we saw this editorial we had to feature it! We also really enjoyed that it has a little more of a masculine feel with the addition of a barber in the morning. This one goes out to the Vineyard groom!
