As seen on Style Me Pretty Canada (click here to see feature)

This stylized shoot was dreamed and designed by Jessica of Trove Vintage, and although this isn’t their real wedding Amelia + Jason are a real life couple and they were so great to photograph.  Everything was carried in and set up in a rock quarry at the foot of Sumas Mountain!  When Jessica contacted us and asked if we would do the photography for her we loved the concept so much and of course agreed!

Huge thanks to all the vendors who made this all possible!

THE SHOOT:

Vancouver Makeup and Hair artist Felicia Bromba and White Album Weddings photographer Elizabeth Kowal came together to create an inspirational bridal photo shoot inspired by the classic elegance of old Hollywood. Together, with a group of creatives they created a feeling of bold bridal luxury. Bringing together a new twist on modern elegance and vintage flair, with a touch of marsala and complemented by a rich color palette of deep oranges and reds.

Rowena’s Inn on the River’s idyllic surroundings became the perfect setting with it’s English-style manor nestled along a private waterfront, and Gatsby-esque glamor; complete with a large formal dining space, classically designed furniture pieces throughout, and a natural stone wood-burning fireplace.

The elegant wedding gowns by Truvelle feature plunging necklines, with open sides and striking back detail; showcasing draping chiffon, flowing effortlessly from the waist to the floor, beautifully finished with a silk bow. Paired with jewelry designed and created by Powder Blue Bijoux for an added touch of luxury sparkle, fit for any bride looking to a make a statement. The final touch to bring together this glamorous inspirational shoot is the perfectly elegant makeup and hairstyling; showcasing soft vintage pin curls for a classic, elegant, and polished bridal hair design complimented with a stunning and bold burgundy lip color to complement the harmonious and sophisticated bridal makeup application.

The two bridal bouquets were created by Deborah Lee Designs. Red and orange-toned floral accents sit atop gold linen tablecloths, bringing together an opulent, visual showcase of rare gold rimmed plate settings and antique silverware and décor items and furniture from Spruce Collective Vintage Rentals.

As wedding photographers we’re busy, busy, busy all summer and then in winter we enjoy a somewhat slower pace.  A good time to rest, spruce up our website and and catch up on all those things that we got behind on during our busiest seasons, including photographing some creative shoots.  Here’s a couple’s session in the snow with Michelle + Justin who were brave enough to put up with the chilly weather!
