Inspiration Behind the Shoot

From the Photographer

We love the fine balance between rustic and modern. Our goal was to meld those styles and create something truly unique! To balance the modernity of clean lines, we utilized texture wherever possible. We incorporated modern style with the use of hexagons in our stationary, built ceremony structure and details.

Another aspect of modern style was our model's custom-made wedding gown, created for us by local designer Liza Diaz of Diaz Fine Design. The modern and clean lines of the dress paired sweetly with the brides cathedral-length silk tulle veil. In addition, the dress's clean lines and simplicity created harmony between the beautiful rustic setting and corresponding vintage details in the shoot. The model's hair and makeup was vintage inspired and paired beautifully with her Elsa Corsi crystal drop earrings.

The textiles we used for our shoot included hand-dyed silk ribbons for our bouquet, and hand-dyed muslin for our table linens in shades of rose quartz, jewel-toned pinks and deep marsala.

The florals made by our team were textured, organic and jewel-toned. We incorporated several different types of textured foliage and various exotic in season flowers. The colors complimented the details throughout our shoot such as, our marsala-colored stationary, our linens and our beautiful Persian rug.

Luna Bianco Family Country Estate is a stunning property located in one of British Columbia's most equestrian neighborhoods. Its beautiful Mediterranean architecture is reminiscent of a Tuscan country estate in Italy, and its expansive property created the perfect backdrop for the rustic and modern style we were aiming for.
