Despite calling for thunderstorms, yesterday evening was so beautiful! We may or may not have stressed about the rain that started when we arrived at the sunny Britannia Beach, but those clouds were passing by attempting to scare us! We had an amazing team of Ottawa based wedding vendors come together for a styled photo shoot! I couldn’t have asked for a prettier sunset to be able to make this vision all come together! This will surely give some brides creative ideas for their upcoming weddings in terms of wedding gown, decor, hair, makeup,wedding cake, custom stationary, vintage plate settings, custom handmade tables, photos and more!
When I asked the “bride” if she would like to participate she jumped at the idea of re-living her wedding day, this time with her daughter Clare by her side. I am so glad Alison and Colin agreed to be part of this special event as they are still truly in love! Alison looked amazing in her Rivini Gown exclusively from Ashton Station Bridal in Carleton Place. The bouquet, centrepieces, and decor all came together beautifully. The coordination of colours were flawless and timeless. This is sure to inspire some true wedding day fairy tales.
I decided to put together a styled wedding because that is the best way to practice, meet vendors and build experience. It took only 2 weeks for everything to come together. There were ups and downs and only a select few vendors were open to the idea. At the end of the day I was able to collaborate with the most amazing people. I am so drawn by the golden hour as a photographer that I envisioned the photos to be done outdoors, near the beach, with the sun cascading in, and I am so lucky this was made possible! We came so close to postponing, but in the end everything came together beautifully. The best part was eating the most delicious cake and celebrating the success of the day!
All vendors will be listed below, so please check out this dream team of people, because not only were they absolutely wonderful people, they are all truly passionate about what they do. You won’t find much better than this!
