This spring, I wanted to take a step back from the craziness of “spring bloom” photos. It was my busiest spring yet, with so many amazing families and engaged couples wanting to take advantage of the magnolia flowers around the city, and I was in a creative need of something a little different!
I talked to Amy from Unmistakably You and told her that I wanted to do another styled bridal session, but something really out-of-the-box this time. She came up with the idea of using musical instruments as the base of our design. It was the perfect starting point for what started transitioning into a rockabilly-inspired bridal session with a 90’s twist!
Mary from Springhill Flowers is beyond talented at what she does. From the framed floral backdrop, to a cascading table arrangement, to a stunning bracelet and necklace, she truly did not disappoint! As planning went on, it really felt like we had a “dream team” of vendors. Dani from Invited by Dani created the invitations and stationary, including guitar-pick program fans, labels for our “Moonshine” favour bar, and even a custom overlay for our drum kit. Rounding out the amazing team, we were joined by Catherine from Catherine Krahn Makeup Artistry and hair stylist Dustin Schumann, who created the most perfect looks to compliment the stunning gown provided by Nada from Elle Couture.
I can’t thank this incredible team enough for all of their hard work, but need to give a special shout-out to our models, Erin and Mike, as well as Nada, who all came to the rescue and joined at the last minute after we ran into a bit of a bump in the road during planning!
We may have ran into a few snags along the way, and we may have been battling against 26 km/hr winds, but the outcome was exactly what I was hoping for. In the end that’s all that matters ;)
