A Dream Team for the Ladies!
The intimate moments a Bride and her bridesmaids share on the wedding day morning is something I find so special and unique. My intention for this creative shoot was to capture those celebrations while showcasing some amazing talents every lady should have on that special day! Now don’t get me wrong, there are SO many amazing talents in Calgary, but this particular group of industry friends helped create my vision of beauty, aesthetics and delicate details and I am so grateful for the results. I hope you find inspiration, excitement and that special vendor you’ve been looking for!
Distilled Beauty Bar + Social House is “Beauty, flavor and relaxation, all distilled into one space.” This gem is in the heart of Marda Loop and is the one stop shop for so many occasions!
Signature cocktails and a pedicure. Hot latte and a styled mane. Glass of wine and painted nails. Get it!? Distilled Beauty Bar proudly serves tapas, vegan and vegetarian options while providing a full service beauty bar! How awesome is that!? Be sure to catch a glimpse of Liam,’s smile, Lachlin’s hospitality and Lisa’s welcoming embrace!
Maide The Label Lauren Larsen’s designs are what inspired this entire shoot. The colours of the gowns, the gorgeous styles and the message behind a custom fit, high quality gown that you will want to wear again! Having been in the industry several years with her “made-to-measure suiting business,” (Atelier) Lauren knew the ladies deserved the same. These gowns compliment every body shape, size and style.
Lovenote Bride “is both a design studio & a bridal boutique.” In the heart of Inglewood this beautiful boutique showcases top quality gowns that represent individual style. In addition to international designers, Lovenote’s made to order gowns crafted in Vancouver BC are sure to capture the eye of every kind of bride.
Something Borrowed Beauty is a team of Calgary based hair and make up stylists who travel throughout Alberta and BC. Co-Owner Kelsey and her team graciously agreed to style 5 models with hair and make up and boy did they nail it! Not only were they so kind and ready to go at 7am on a MONDAY!- but they worked so efficiently together! Kelsey and the team took the time to understand the vision and the final outcome and through skill and attention to detail, complimented each gown, hair accessory and earring for every model. I highly recommend the Something Borrowed Beauty Team to all my clients!
Luna and Stone “is a collection of bespoke bridal accessories for the effortless and ethereal.” Based in Winnipeg (but able to ship anywhere!). Steph hand-makes timeless pieces for Brides and her ladies that can be worn time and time again. Hair pieces, earrings, necklaces, garters, sashes, bracelets! You can get it all with Luna and Stone!
Chickweed Cottage, where to start with the ever so lovely Carly!? Carly’s talents match her personality-beautiful, inspiring and will be sure to bring joy to your day. Carly perfected the design and colour palette of this creative shoot and the bouquets were beyond gorgeous. Carly went above and beyond with little extra’s to add and everyone would be lucky to have her on the team!
