"I wanted to create something vibrant in the middle of a very natural location. I was inspired by the headpieces, the colors, the involvement of the bridal party, the jewels, the gown changes and the natural elements that made this wedding different than any I had ever seen before. So, I teamed up with Aaron Haslinger Photography, Richardson's Florist, Rusty Love Vintage Rentals, Preston's Stationery, Robert Ashtin Salon and Second Nature by Meg Browning to create an editorial style shoot that brought the latest tribal trends in fashion to the wedding scene. The team was great. The models were awesome! And, the results were daring and fresh. While this shoot is definitely an exaggerated take on a fashion trend, I think REAL weddings can be inspired by it's fun color scheme, amazing stationery, and willingness to take risks in pulling fashion trends into bridal."

Today's couple is too simply too cute! Ann Ahrens & John Teigland met early in life & havent let go of one another for a moment! When the time came to bring their wedding together, Ann, along with a small army of close friends & family rolled up their sleeves & went to task! Essentially every aspect of this wedding has been personally touched, worked on, created & so much more! From the heirloom brooch bouquet to signage, chalkboards galore, fabric bouquets, even the men's gorgeous boutonnieres! This wedding is a DIY'ers dream!

I wont pretend as if you have possibly not yet seen this wedding already. I have seen it already featured all over the wed web world & that truly is a wonderful thing for the couple & photographer, seriously kudos! When I realized how much exposure this wedding had already gotten before it headed in my direction, I almost immediately shot it down. For whatever reason though, I didnt clear it from my queue right away & as such, it keep staring at me.

Oh my dear friends, its only Monday and we are off to a wonderfully sweet start!! Candy as a wedding theme is not exactly a new idea, however, time & again, its the execution that separates the doers from the triers. What on earth am I on about right? Ideas are great in theory, but if the taste level isnt there, the creative execution & most importantly design savvy, the simplest of ideas, do not pan out as expected. LivingSimplicity, along with some other stellar British Columbia vendors came together to create a world of vintage rustic charm providing the perfect background for a Wonka worthy Candy Theme. Utilizing a gorgeous old school floral pattern, the plates along with the distressed wood tables offer up a place for the candy dream to take flight creating whimsy at every turn. Rock candy, reinvented cotton candy, cupcakes, giant rainbow swirl lollipops, taffy, and so much more playfully join together in harmony. Vintage books & their pages are used to create a familiar design aesthetic not only on the tablescape but in the bunting as well which frames the dessert table. Pops of lace & pearl serve to soften up the rustic wood tables, giving a light feminine touch to the overall feel. Dynamic florals in strong technicolor hues provide powerful bursts of color in the form of garden roses, peonies, billy balls and my own personal OMG is that....Meringue in the bouquet?! Absolutely brilliant! I love love love the act of incorporating sweets into the arrangements themselves in a lovely complementary way! With this shoot as a styled guide, I hope to see a surge of many more stunningly sweet affairs!
