For my second creative shoot I wanted to choose a theme that was completely opposite from the first. I wanted a theme that had lots of character and unique details, with that being said, I decided my second theme to be a vintage tea party. The idea came to me while I was browsing Chapters one afternoon and came across The Vintage Tea Party book by Angel Adoree where she gives tips on hosting the perfect party. I thought to myself what a great theme it would be going back to old traditions, proper etiquette and vintage ways. Most of the vendors from this shoot were from my first one with the addition of Jamie from Dreamy Faces and Icon Models who provided me with two gorgeous models that were lovely to work with. (Not to mention, they made a perfect pretend couple) I really hope that you guys enjoy this shoot as much as the first one.
Today I would like to share with you my first time collaborating a creative shoot ever….ever, ever, ever. The process took about 4 months from planning, to styling, to execution and I was just filled with all kinds of emotions. I was nervous, anxious and excited all at the same time.
The shoot took place at the McClean house at the Estates of Sunnybrook located on Bayview just south of Lawrence. The McLean house is just 1 of 3 beautiful spaces available for weddings and private events at Sunnbrook. You can read more about the venue here. This creative shoot was a huge collaboration with 8 other vendors within the GTA. You will be able to see their work with the photos below.
To be honest, there was no real reason as to how or where this theme came about. I wanted something fresh, simple and modern since the weather was getting nicer and I wanted to showcase a little bit of my style. Lemons were fresh, versatile and simply easily accessible. They were used everywhere as place card holders, lemonade, incorporated into the flower arrangements as well as decor on the sweets table. Although this creative shoot was a lot of work I felt a sense of accomplishment once it was done. I had so much fun working with all the vendors and styling this shoot, I really hope you guys love it as much as i do.
