Birdcage Theme Stylized Shoot by Picture That and Just For You Photography

Over the past couple of years I haven't been able to devote as much time to stylized shoots. I was particulary drawn to being a part of this shoot not only because of the fabulous photographers and vendors, but also the bird theme requested for the stationery. I'm a sucker for animals or anything remotely classified as "cute". Below are some of the photos of this fresh bird-inspired photoshoot.

For more photos check out this photoshoot featured on Wedding Obsession!

Real Wedding :: Michelle & Ryan

Michelle & Ryan came to me with a clear vision of stationery for their May 18, Grouse Mountain wedding. They wanted to incorporate the ski hill and outdoor aspects of their wedding location. The invitation suite was based on a ski lift pass and the rest of the stationery followed suit. We even included some bear prints for an extra element of fun! Thanks to Matt Kennedy Photography for sharing these photos. To see more photos of their wedding view his blog post here.

Featured Work :: Special Event Rentals Showcase

Last night Special Event Rentals hosted an evening for event planners featuring some of their newest linens and rentals. The highlighted tables were nothing short of gorgeous and I was happy to compliment the tables with customized stationery for each themed table. Other vendors who contributed to the tables included: FaBLOOMosity, Dasee, Wild Orchid, Flirt cupcakes, and Cake Couture. I was able to get a few photos of some of the tables below. Thanks so much to SER for inviting me to be a part of their successful event!

Personal Project :: Vintage Bridal Shower

Because of my skill set, I feel honoured to be able to contribute to the special life events for all my wonderful friends. This featured bridal shower was no exception. My dear friend, Shauna, was showered with love from her friends and family before tying the knot in Jamaica earlier this year. Her mom orchestrated and executed this Pinterest-worthy ivory and pink vintage bridal shower. I supplied all the stationery including: sweet table labels, drink flags, favour tags, and signage. I also must mention the delectable catering by The Butler Did It and sweets by The Art of Cake. Enjoy some of the photos I was able to capture below!
