Our Snow White inspired bridal shoot was a thrill for us to coordinate and to see it so wonderfully come to completion. One thing we love about projects like this is the ability to use local vendors and support the communities we live in! We worked with two amazing photographers; our very own Sabrina Gidon and Tabitha from Tabitha Cliff-Daase Photography. Our Executive Planner, Bernadette Maguire, was the driving force (the visionary, the motivator, and the do-er) behind this whole shoot and she is the main reason for it all coming together.
The day we chose for shooting was extremely cold (and rightly so, since we chose Snow White as the inspiration!) and our model, Janelle Raddatz, was very brave. She faced the elements dressed in an exquisite wedding gown provided by Truvelle; a lovely, local bridal line whose store is located on Cambie Street in Gastown. Janelle’s makeup was done by Erin Nicole Makeup Artistry and her nails by Liz from Paint Boxx Nails. One of my particular favourites was the gold and red hairpiece, which was lent to us by Aimee at Xoxo Couture, along with another hair piece and the veils. Every detail involved in turning Janelle into a ‘Snow White’ bride was carefully considered and in the end her look perfectly complimented our set and blew our expectations out of the water.
In order to create our set we used vintage furniture and décor from Spruce Collective and décor from Valley Weddings. We also provided some of the final touches ourselves such as the beautiful floral arrangements. Going forward we will be continuing to partner with Valley Weddings in order to provide full décor services to our clients (we are SO excited about this!).
In the end, we were very pleased with how everything came together and we are so excited to share the results with you (as we warm ourselves with a hot cup of cocoa)! We feel inspired when we see something that we had simply dreamed of before so fully come to life, and we hope you do too.
