I was beyond ecstatic when I got asked by Cortnie from canvasandcanopy to help on this amazing inspiration shoot for Nonpareil magazine for their December issue! She knew I would have a few pieces that would fit for the shoot but Cortnie definitely worked her magic and gathered it all herself! When we got to the location ( Santa Barbara museum ), I kept getting distracted as our photographer Elizabeth Messina also brought some insane antique pieces…okay maybe I was drooling! It was definitely an all day event and although tedious I just love setting it all up! I was blown away by all of the vendors who collaborated on this shoot, you could tell they were all very excited about the creativity and unexpectedness of the shoot! Here are some images I just could not live without:
Hair and make up by Fiore Beauty was flawless. I was in love with this necklace and Cortnie chose the most perfect dress to channel this “Shipwreck/bohemian” feel.
One of my favorite details was the hand dyed yarn that Cortnie made for the chairs.
Laura Hooper provided the Calligraphy…
A fun way to display seating cards, and a map of mine to show off the boutineers.
Bride and Groom chair… Elizabeth capturing a sweet moment..
A vintage suitcase and a trunk full of treasures…
Of course I have to end this post with this sweet shot through the netting… and some killer designer shoes.
Thank you to Cortnie for letting me be a part of this amazing shoot…a great experience indeed. This shoot was also featured on Green wedding shoes!
