Vintage wedding inspiration – a vendor collaboration photo shoot!

I’m so excited to reveal the results of a project I’ve been working on for some time! It started as a small idea with only a few people, but it expanded to become a collaborative effort with some very generous wedding vendors, both locally and nationally.

The idea was to make up a small scale scene, with a model as a bride. I found a couple of used dresses, a model, and a florist, but I decided that it would be much cooler with more people involved. Vendors sent things in from everywhere, I went to pick up several things, and a few people even showed up to help out! I ended up having so much stuff, that I needed to switch out items and backgrounds so that everything matched.

We managed to pull it off, highlighting each vendor at least a little bit. I intended to do much more, but the rain became an issue and shortened the time we could spend on each shot. I swear, Seattle is usually sunny by late June! I also had a problem with my preferred method of lighting, so we made do with alternative lighting options underneath the gloomy clouds. Despite all of the complications, I think the shoot went pretty well! I certainly am happy about a lot of the shots, and I hope that each vendor feels the same.

Be sure to see the list of contributing vendors below! They all have great stuff to offer! Our model Alexandra also did a fantastic job!

Anyway, on to a lot of photos!

Midnight Blossom provided the pretty bouquet. They also lent me the cool bird cage, which I sadly only got one shot of because we were running out of time.

Cameron Catering made the yummy chocolate treats possible.  They also provided the small potted flowers seen in a few shots.

The UW Botanic Gardens was the gorgeous venue where the shoot took place. Good Fellow Grove is the specific spot in the gardens.

All on Location Hairstyling was responsible for the model’s hair and makeup.

Veils by Jules provided the cool hair accessories and veils.

Kate Hiccox, a Stella and Dot stylist, showed up to decorate the model with lots of fun jewelry.

Cakes by Look provided the gorgeous white cake.

BrainFry Concepts sent me the fun black and white invitations and matching paper goods.

Chic Ink also sent me some invitations and menu cards (the cute ones with the tree).

The Favour Shoppe provided the cute little espresso set favors.

Alexandra Flint was our fabulous model.

Thanks everyone for a job well done! 🙂
