Last fall, my sister Amber became engaged (on their decade anniversary)! I immediately booked a dress shopping appointment at The White Peony – my favourite bridal gown boutique in Victoria.
Armed with my camera of course, my mom and two sisters made a day of it and it struck me how much this girl time was an integral part of the wedding day experience. A girl looks forward to inviting the women in her life to this anticipated event and I was so happy to have these photos of my sister’s first bridal excitement and my mom’s maternal reaction. I thought that photographing this celebration and relationships should be a more common practice surrounding the event and pitched the idea to Trish at The White Peony.
Sarah from Fresh View Events made a beautiful and fragrant bouquet for the brides to complete the look, while Jenna from DM&Company salon offered quick mock trial soft updos and makeup applications. Cupcakse, goodie bags and champagne was the icing on the cake and we had a fabulous day of veils, lace and emotions.
Brides, thank you for attending! You all looked beautiful. Download your photos for free HERE.
