Fall Wedding Inspiration – Blue Willow

I was involved, with an amazing group of wedding professionals, in a styled shoot inspired by the Blue Willow china pattern and the gorgeous colours of a Nova Scotia autumn.  Thanks to each and every one of them for including me in this experience.  It was cold and it was a long day from the time I loaded up a van, drove to the Annapolis Valley, participated in the shoot and drove home, but it was worth every minute.  Here are the creds:

Elegant Productions – Lauren and Katelyn:  http://elegantproductions.ca  I had a chance to work with these two creative ladies a few times over the 2013 season and appreciate the business they sent my way and for suggesting Borrowed for this shoot.  It was fun to see them in action, their organizational skills and how they made things seamlessly flow throughout the day.  Who doesn’t need that on a wedding day?
Flowers:  http://www.chelsealeeflowers.ca  –  when I saw those flowers in my cobalt bottle collection my heart stopped!   If I had been on a chair I would have fallen off!  And the bouquet, swing (THE SWING) and halo were equally amazing.  She made sure every bloom was in perfect, photo worthy condition!

Cakes:  Those blue birds are handpainted on the cake!  Talented!  http://www.frostingcakesandevents.com

Wedding gown, bride’s cape (made from vintage doilies –  you know I was loving on that), bride’s necklace http://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/GillianHannahBerry

Food:  How delicious does that look?  http://localsourcemarket.com/catering-2

Stationary:  http://www.creativedestiny.ca – One word – beautiful!

Hairstyling:  http://truebeautysalonspa.ca – Soft and flowing but managed to last the day.

Makeup: Allison Kirby  – well just look at Drew 🙂

Models: Drew Campbell & Jono Horne – beautiful/low maintenance:

Ta da!   Photography by the incomparable http://candaceberry.com (with special props to her husband Dave for the “heavy lifting”).  See her blog post here:  http://candaceberry.com/blog/2013/11/blue-willow/ (Plus the link will appear when watching my slideshow – credit where credit is due)
I’ll be featuring the photographs which so stunningly capture the beauty of my inventory (plus some others that I just couldn’t resist sharing) and showcase some ideas on how to incorporate them into your day.
