Vancouver Vintage Wedding | featured editorial

May 15

This past December, Jeanie Ow and I embarked on a project: to create a Vancouver Vintage Wedding Editorial that would highlight the joys we both manifested in our hearts.  Little did we know, it’s results would soon become the birthright of Heirloom Magazine.

From conception, the purpose of our project was to capture an eclectic Vancouver vintage wedding. Not only would it  feature traditional vintage elements , but a whimsical mix of indie and craft. In addition, we were determined to meet and collaborate with other vendors who’s desire was to specialize in vintage nuptials. While you’d think it would be easy, it took months of careful planning to curate a master team.

Together, along with  a dozen of finest Vancouver’s vintage wedding experts, we fought snow, hale, rain and sub zero temperatures to capture the images you see today.

Our models were troopers, embracing all that mother nature brought us!

Like seriously… real troopers!

The vision was surreal; far more than we had hoped for. The results: nearly eight hours of shooting!

The dinner vignette featured a collection of personal treasures, hay bale benches, an antique door table top, two rustic wine barrels and a genuine antique theatre chair.

A hand-crafted paper heart chandelier hung gracefully at it’s center.

Nestled between the trees, the sweets station was a personal favourite.

An assortment of unique  guest tags doubled as the seating chart.

A vintage decanter and adorable “Sip” embellished mason jars.

And to complete the rustic charm:  a Polaroid photo booth and paper heart garland backdrop.

 This sensation shoot is now featured proudly as an editorial feature in Heirloom Magazine; vintage goodness for the modern bride.
