From Amanda Douglas Events...This shoot was a beautiful collaboration of some great Winnipeg vendors. We had the idea of creating a shoot that was fresh, warm, bright and 1920s inspired. We tried to focus on the fun and elegance of the 20s but bringing in brighter colors light gold, pink and ivory. The table was set with oversized floral arrangements of hydrangeas, roses, gold berries, and greenery accented by crystal candled holders, a music sheet table runner, simple white plates, antique gold cutlery and vintage lace wall set behind. The focus was on sweet elegance and charm and the love and whimsy that comes from people in love.

The location was selected in an old building full of studios and lofts in the Exchange district in Downtown Winnipeg (Manitoba, Canada).  We wanted to work with a bright white space that had beautiful wood floors and a rustic wood table, bringing in some natural elements to the shoot. The stationary was designed to be simple and sweet. Grey text was used on the invite with pale pink for the names and date. We softened the look of the invite by rounding corners and aging the edges. By combining all these elements it gave the stationary an overall feminine and romantic feel.

Our couples were done up to be angelic and fresh, using soft neutral tones, with dusty rose accents. We worked with the girls’ natural beauty picking a nude lipstick for one and a more punchy pink lipstick for the other. The hair design was the most influenced by the 1920's. The flare was romantic, soft and beautiful, to play in with the soft tones and antique edge of the decor and clothing. The cake was a four tear ruff iced beauty adorned with wax flowers, golden berries and garden roses.

The dresses were picked thinking of the classy and romantic women of the 20s but of course with a more modern and edgy flare to what would have be the style back then. We love the look and flow of these off white lace and silk dresses.  The men’s outfits were chosen as simple and clean, accenting the beauty of their ladies and their dresses. Over all this shoot was a beautiful and elegant day full of laugher, music, romance, and fabulous vendors getting to work together to create something we’re proud of and happy to share.
