What Happens When Vendors Collaborate!

Yesterday marked one year since I joined forces with some of the most amazing wedding vendors in Kamloops to create a romantic lakeside styled shoot at the picturesque Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Resort.

Below is an insert I created to go along with the shoot for publication. We were blessed to be published with Rocky Mountain Bride in October of 2016.

We were inspired to tell a story of two young people, who love deeply and the innocence of their relationship.

The Quaaout Lodge provided the perfect backdrop. The lodge is nestled along the shores of Little Shuswap Lake. With its untouched natural beauty of woodlands, whispering willow trees and stunning lake views, we were inspired to capture a feeling of romantic innocence.

Renee, from Wild Sage Events set the tone for the day! The colour palette of muted pastels, accompanied by the natural woodgrain elements was nothing short of breathtaking. A touch of soft vintage layered the table, with beautiful cream linens, a green foliage runner intertwined with candlesticks, gold rimmed china, and pink glass accents.

The cathedral pew was an inspiration entirely on its own. To create the feeling of pure emotion, we used the pew in its most raw state. The textures of the wood and the lines of the design, were accompanied by a beautiful cascading foliage runner and surrounded by an abundance of pillar candles.

Maurelle, from Maurelle Calligraphy designed the invitation suite. I love how she added the personal touch of using actual menu items that are offered at the lodge. The beautiful textured paper and embossed rose coloured ink complemented each setting.

Amber, from Sheer Florals and Silk created the floral arrangements. The use of beautiful blushes and lights creams created a natural dreamy feel. To add a whimsical touch, cascading ribbons were added to the bouquet filled with garden roses and anemones.

Megan, from Cocoa Dot Cakes listened to our vision and transformed it into a beautiful piece of artwork. With delicate touches of watercolours and hand drawn flowers, the cake was simple yet very soft and elegant.

The naturally beautiful bride adorned a Truvelle designed gown and Bella Belle Shoes from Aglow Bridal Lounge. The elegant lace straps, open back and flowing skirt of the gown added the perfect uniqueness of vintage and romance.

The models were a real life couple and the brought their A Game! They allowed for me to capture a very authentic feeling of true love!
