Anit + Ivan | Vancouver Swan-E-Set Wedding on Style Me Pretty

Anita + Ivan’s wedding story published on Style Me Pretty Canada.  See the feature HERE.

Reception Venue: Swan-e-set Bay Resort | Bride’s Shoes: Badgley Mischka | Bridesmaids’ Dresses: David’s Bridal | Hair Stylist: A La Mode by Alex | Groom’s Suit: Armani | Bride’s Dress: Augusta Jones via Bisou Bridal | Brides Accessories (Bracelet & Earrings: Nadri | Makeup: Makeup by Ariana | Photographers: Mark + Elizabeth Kowal from White Album Weddings | Transportation: Vancouver Trolley Company

It doesn’t take long after meeting Ivan + Anita to realize that they are both true romantics.  On the morning of the wedding Ivan gave Anita five gifts wrapped in separate boxes and numbered them.  One of them included a photo of a willow tree that Ivan had planted in their new home together since Anita loves willows, and another was a journal full of letters he had written to her since the day they first met.  Every detail they planned for their wedding was something personal to them.  They both love quotes and Anita framed a quote for each of the reception tables.  We loved this quote on one of the tables; “What greater thing is there for two human souls that to feel that they are joined – to strengthen each other – to be at one with each other in silent unspeakable memories”. [George Eliot]  See more on Style Me Pretty.

Anita + Ivan, your whole day was absolutely beautiful and perfect, and we wish you both a lifetime of memories together.

 

 

We chose Mark + Elizabeth Kowal from White Album Weddings. We wanted a romantic and natural feel for our photos. Photography is the most important thing for me as I love pouring over photos over and over again and to have beautiful photos to look back on and remember our special day will be the greatest gift, for us, and to be able to share with our families, friends, and our future children, grandchildren and hopefully great-grandchildren!!

THE SHOOT:

Vancouver Makeup and Hair artist Felicia Bromba and White Album Weddings photographer Elizabeth Kowal came together to create an inspirational bridal photo shoot inspired by the classic elegance of old Hollywood. Together, with a group of creatives they created a feeling of bold bridal luxury. Bringing together a new twist on modern elegance and vintage flair, with a touch of marsala and complemented by a rich color palette of deep oranges and reds.

Rowena’s Inn on the River’s idyllic surroundings became the perfect setting with it’s English-style manor nestled along a private waterfront, and Gatsby-esque glamor; complete with a large formal dining space, classically designed furniture pieces throughout, and a natural stone wood-burning fireplace.

The elegant wedding gowns by Truvelle feature plunging necklines, with open sides and striking back detail; showcasing draping chiffon, flowing effortlessly from the waist to the floor, beautifully finished with a silk bow. Paired with jewelry designed and created by Powder Blue Bijoux for an added touch of luxury sparkle, fit for any bride looking to a make a statement. The final touch to bring together this glamorous inspirational shoot is the perfectly elegant makeup and hairstyling; showcasing soft vintage pin curls for a classic, elegant, and polished bridal hair design complimented with a stunning and bold burgundy lip color to complement the harmonious and sophisticated bridal makeup application.

The two bridal bouquets were created by Deborah Lee Designs. Red and orange-toned floral accents sit atop gold linen tablecloths, bringing together an opulent, visual showcase of rare gold rimmed plate settings and antique silverware and décor items and furniture from Spruce Collective Vintage Rentals.

    This session is gorgeous Elizabeth. The setting, the beautiful woman, your images. Breathtaking. I love how the skirt makes her look like a mermaid in the image where she is leaning on the table. So pretty!ReplyCancel

J + M drove out in a green vintage Firebird and we headed out of the city for their engagement photos until we were surrounded by mountains and forests and alpine meadows covered in wild flowers.  Here are some of our favourite photos from Part 1 of J + M’s engagement session (more photos from Part 2 and the Firebird later!).
