MAD FOR MAUVE

FAIRMONT WATERFRONT, VANCOUVER

Inspired by the dreamiest colour tones of mauve, blush, creme and gold, this whimsical editorial session was shot at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel Ballroom. The inspiration behind this editorial was to combine modern glam with a touch of romantic flair. With its classically beautiful crystal chandelier, the interior of the Waterfront Ballroom served as the perfect venue to bring our vision to life.

For the floral elements, seasonal foliage was handpicked to compliment the blooms including roses, spray roses, hydrangea, eryngium, eucalyptus, olive branches, and limonium. Deckled handmade paper was used for the stationery suite, and the delicate calligraphy was paired perfectly with the understated typography. To create a romantic ambience, the sweetheart setting was lit with candle lights, and we also added string lights to the backdrop, which bring out the soft and whimsical aspect of the blush canopy.

Both bridal gowns the model wore are from the 2019 Pronovias Collection. The dress with the sweetheart table, was a spectacular princess dress, fitted at the natural waist, has a full skirt made with flowing organza ruffles that overlap in a cascade to give it greater volume. The skirt blended into a delicate long-sleeved bodice in lace and guipure, where flowers framed a suggestive closed illusion neckline that opens into an open back.

The gown with the flower backdrop was an evasé skirt, fitted at the natural waist, crafted in chiffon and soft tulle with beaded thread and Chantilly appliqués. A design overflowing with details and nuances intended to emphasize the femininity of the bride with its silhouette and light fabrics. The flowing skirt with layers of soft tulle and Chantilly panels blended with a bodice with a V-neckline and bias-cut chiffon trim that contrasts with the illusion back in crystal tulle with thread-embroidered floral appliqués. The bodice was complemented with a lining to minimize the sheer effects.

For the desserts, both the donut bar and the cake station were featured with hand crafted paper flowers, as well as gold laser cut signs. The donuts from the donut bar were the Wedding Specialty Donuts provided by Cartems, and were displayed on a crystal board, framed with hand crafted paper flowers and leaves.

The wedding cake, decorated with delicate handcrafted sugar flowers, was displayed on pedestals in front of a large white circular backdrop. The flowers on the cake and on the backdrop were created to harmonize with one another, with hydrangea, roses, and peonies. Not to mention that each flower petal on the cake is meticulously hand painted to match the overall theme.
