Well, here is the final segment of the Eco Wedding shoot I did at the end of January. I apologize for the delay in posting this, but I have a few good excuses (prepping all week for the wedding fair and some family emergencies lately).
I am so excited about this part of the shoot! This is the part that comprises the culmination of everything I intended for this photoshoot ~ green wedding vendors that are local to Vancouver. I really wanted to focus on showing what fantastic resources we have in our own backyards in regards to recycled, sustainably-grown or sustainably-made items for your wedding. And there is lots out there! All you need to do is a little bit of legwork in researching some alternative options and you might start to find some surprising things out there! And this is a good place to start.
Since it was the middle of winter, I also wanted to focus on a West Coast wintry, rustic, woodland theme so I made sure to incorporate lots of natural textures with jute, bark, natural knits and Patty’s gorgeous gown fabrics. And being the dead of winter, I also needed a location that would have dual indoor/outdoor function and the Eighteen Pastures Golf Course in Mission provided just the right amount of rustic-ness that I needed. Of course, it rained pretty much the whole day, otherwise I would have taken more photos of this lovely dress outside!
So without further ado, here is the exhaustive list of amazing people that were willing to partner with me on this project. Putting together this shoot was so much work, but so worth it in the end! I hope you enjoy it and please leave your comments below!
