Leave it to Vera to design the most stunning wedding gown I’ve ever seen – in burgundy. The styled shoot designed around that beautiful Blush Bridal dress is urban chic at it’s finest and Tamiz Photography + CountDown Events Planning + Design have me really craving a wedding inspired by this shoot. I’m sure I could convince a few of you brides to go there with this gallery!
From the photographer… The entire line of dresses we used were gorgeous Vera Wang’s. Soha Lavin (an incredibly talented and respected coordinator in Canada) styled an elegant shoot with an urban flair. Our primary location was L’abattoir which is one of the hottest restaurants currently in Vancouver.

Here’s an idea that I can totally get on board with: a pre-wedding photo shoot with your future hubby-to-be a year before the wedding. I mean, talk about an awesome way to celebrate your upcoming nuptials… just you and yours in your finest wedding attire and a whole beach full of pretty. See it all captured by Kirill Bordon Photography in the full gallery.
From Kirill Bordon Photography… Nicole and Brendan are getting married this summer in Mexico and this was a pre-wedding styled photo shoot which we all enjoyed very much! Nicole is an actress and a model and Brendan is a cinematographer. His behind scenes photos are exactly what i was looking for! It took some time to find right team for this photo project but we did it and are very happy about it! The shoot took place at a hidden beach in West Vancouver with large west coast stones and forest surroundings.

If there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that a rainy day in Canada makes for one seriously romantic setting. Add some vintage-inspired goodness to the mix and, well… I am all sorts of twitterpated (that’s a word). Especially when that vintage goodness comes from the likes of Natural Touch Wedding and Event Planning, Vintage Origami and Sarah Beebe Photography. See all of the lovely right here.
From Sarah Beebe Photography… I was so excited for the opportunity to collaborate with Kelowna vendors for this vintage mock-up wedding project. This team has such amazing vision and creativity, I knew it was going to be good! I’m completely in love with the products from Vintage Origami Wedding Rentals and their retro styled look. Plus, Susanna from Modern Invitations made beautiful menus to finish the look.
Setting everything up with Melissa from Natural Touch Wedding and Event Planning was a lot of fun… even in the rain! It rained and rained but we didn’t give up hope. Our mock-up groom said to me, “We are rocking this out rain or shine, I will get my umbrella if I have to!” But he didn’t have to. Thankfully the rain stopped and we finished our setup. The table looked so lovely at the top of Ancient Hill Winery, overlooking the farms below. Finally, the sun came out! And it came out just in time for golden hour, my favorite time of day!
This was an absolute dream to shoot. I had a wonderful, supportive team and freedom to walk around the winery, not to mention a terrific bride and groom to work with. They’re so sweet and in love, the bride always giggling at her man. They seemed to enjoy every moment together and were such good sports, up for anything I asked them to do! Amy from Tie the Knot Hair Design did a fabulous job with our bride’s hair, creating a unique rose look. Bri from Bri Stein Artistry is so talented at makeup and made our bride glow with a subtle yet beautiful application. Thank you to everyone who made this vision a reality! Enjoy!
