Spring Whimsy in the Island Wedding Dress

When Lacey from Island Moments Photography got in touch with us to be a part of a special mother/daughter shoot among the cherry blossoms, we jumped on board with excitement! There's something so magical about this time of year, when all of the flowers start blooming and the sun begins to shine a little warmer with each passing week. When we asked which dress she was thinking of using for the shoot, Lacey asked for our recommendation saying that the inspiration was a romantic, spring time vibe. We knew right away that our Island gown would fit right in to this particular mood!

The Island Wedding Dress is a beautifully unique combination of modern meets bohemian. It's actually made up of two dresses that you put on separately; an inner strapless ivory charmeuse gown, and an outer tulle and lace layer. While the inner dress hugs you comfortably, the outer dress is a total show stopper with its gorgeous blush and silver lace accents and statement trim along the train and bell sleeves. With no additional layers or petticoats for volume, this gown falls to the floor naturally and is perfectly carefree and comfortable! Needless to say, the dress fit in perfectly to Lacey's vision and these wonderful shots were captured. We're still swooning!

A Cider Farm Styled Shoot with Aurelia

It seems like so long ago now that we didn't have all of these worries. It has been a very stressful time for us all in different ways. For some, the income that we could typically rely on in has all but ceased to exist, and for others it is the sheer isolation from others that weighs heavily on the head and heart. For many, it is both aspects, combined with the constant worry for our loved ones who are older or have underlying health conditions. Looking back at this beautifully-broody styled shoot that we were fortunate enough to be a part of before this all happened makes us smile, and takes away some of that stress (temporarily at least)! Our Aurelia Wedding Dress was pictured alongside the styling, products, and hard work of other female led businesses, and boy, it turned out SO gorgeously!

Sea Cider is a wonderful farm venue on Vancouver Island which grows organic heirloom apples to produce delicious award-winning cider. Their grounds provided many different locals for the shoot, creating a variation of atmospheres which our couple rocked perfectly! Taylor from Secret Waters Photography was her usual amazingly talented self, and you can check out the full list of excellent vendors at the bottom of this post where we've linked everyone's Instagram pages!

Wishing everyone health and safety!

A Wild West Coast Styled Shoot in the Isra Bridal Skirt

Recently our girl Taylor from Secret Waters Photography ventured down the road to our rocky PNW beaches and captured the Isra Bridal Skirt in the dreamiest coastal shoot yet! The lighting was absolutely perfect on the day, and the sunshine reflected off of Isra's sparkles so magically.

This too-cute couple perfectly posed the day away with the help of a couple awesome local vendors! Alexandra Loughton worked her hair and makeup skills, and Alina May Hall from Cook St Greenery created this stunning bouquet. Ashley looked absolutely stunning alongside her man and we love the off-shoulder sweater she paired with the skirt, truly creating a carefree boho vibe. Needless to say, we're still swooning over the images. See for yourself!

Broody Butterfly Sanctuary Shoot with Wisteria & Artemis

Well, it's official! Our collection launch happened and we couldn't be more chuffed with how much wonderful feedback we've received from you all! You've made all the hard work worth it! It was such an exciting week leading up to the hour in which the website went live and emotions ran high. As much as we love our designs though, it's the brilliant work of many that have really made the new collection shine. Beyond-talented photographers, uber-talented florists and makeup artists, and amazing models have all assisted us in bringing this vision into existence.

One shoot in particular that happened recently took place at a butterfly sanctuary outside of Victoria, BC. The stunning backdrop of lush leafy greenery all around really made the gowns stand out and shine. The team captured two SWF dresses, Wisteria and Artemis along with the latter's long floaty cape to evoke a gorgeous vibe that evokes elegance, uniqueness and even a touch of broody darkness that we are absolutely LOVING!
