Babes and Brides

Spring Collection Volume 1

A few months ago I had this vision of having a shoot with a bunch of brides. I have created and have been lucky to be apart of so many styled "couple" shoots over the years but this is a first. I am always thinking of new ways to continually think "outside of the box". As soon as the idea popped into my head I sent the idea to my good friend Kim from @borrowedandblueevents and of course she was on board. If you ever need a wedding planner she is your girl 100%. The day began in Nanaimo at my shop Salon Muse, you may even spot two salon muse gals in here. We had gowns everywhere, music going and hair/makeup was going down. Coastal Limo and Tour picked us up and transported the group to the Affinity Guesthouse in Duncan. I love this location and if you ever are thinking about a farm style venue I would 100% check it out. Kim had the shoot set up and ready to go. It was AMAZING. The dreamcatchers were custom made from @decorbynaturemg and the decor was provided by @darlingvintagerentals and @bashspecialty. I am obsessed with there peacock chairs. If you ever see any hook a girl up I'm on the search! The yummy cake was from @cake_bytaryn, who I've actually never met in person but she's on my list of people to meet this season! The gowns were from my lovely client Tove who owns White Bridal Boutique in Lantzville. White Bridal is a quaint consignment shop with various styles and sizes for all brides. We had @toddmacsweenphotography for videography. Todd was unable to be with us but we had his assistant who dedicated his entire sunday to hanging out with a bunch of girls, so basically he rocks. Photography was from the lovely @islandmomentsphotography, a mother-daughter duo based in Parksville. If you ever need a photographer I can guarantee you won't find anyone more vibrant. They give all the good vibes. The adorable cookies were from @rmbbakes. She's new to the baking world but she's so talented! I get custom cookies for my shop and I'm more obsessed with each batch. Ive always wanted to do a floral hat, I wish I could wear a floral hat everyday! Florals were from @fleur_de_lii. Its pretty amazing how a group of six women can come together and totally rock a shoot like its no big. The day was long but oh so worth it! I hope you dig this shoot as much as we do.
