Spring Bridal Inspiration // A Flower Shop Styled Shoot

This April, I had the sincere pleasure of working with some really talented people to create my very first collaborative styled bridal shoot.

The inspiration for this shoot all started when I first visited Megan at her Vancouver Gastown flower shop, Olla Urban Flower Project . Not only was the flower shop a beautiful heritage space, with amazing floor to ceiling windows, exposed brick and ancient wood floors; Megan’s flower arrangements just blew me away. So original and beautiful. Not to mention Olla Flowers uses local/ethically traded/farm grown flowers, and gives back to the local community! Yeah, this girl is good.

We used some edwardian era elements in the flower shop to create a somewhat Modern Classic feel to the photos. I love the vintage buttons on the bouquets, the ornate mirror, the tea cup terrariums, and the super cute gold jewelry box.

The gorgeous gowns are from Pure Magnolia; stunning, and eco-friendly! Patty uses sustainable fabrics for her gowns, and I’m seriously in love with both these dresses! The Jewelry designed by Leah Alexandra perfectly complements the gowns. I love it when brides are creative with their wedding jewelry – don’t be afraid of colour!

A big thanks to Emily Cheng Makeup and Hair  for the amazing work she did on these girls, and to Laura Sugden for making the already beautiful set, even more perfect!

The lovely models Jennifer Walls and Kayla Anne Thomas captured my vision perfectly, and were so fun to work with!

And of course a big thanks to my husband, Dylan, who helped with anything I needed, and took some great behind the scenes photos that I will share soon!

All of these wonderful vendors and products are local to the Vancouver area, so a huge shout out to awesome Vancouver talent! Check them out!
