This week I did a really special photoshoot for my Grandmother Elise’s dress that I restored. I documented the process so far with videos here on my Youtube channel everything thing from washing the gown to repairing and finally altering the hem.
Now with the photoshoot done I can now move on to the final video which will be properly archiving it for long-term storage. This is something every bride should think about and plan to have done once their wedding is over.
The weather couldn’t have been better for the day, started out cloudy in the morning and then the sun came out when it shooting time. I like to think Oma had something to do with that. If you are looking for a traditional, vintage feeling venue location with a great garden, look no further! St. Ann’s is absolutely beautiful, can’t say enough good things about it.
I couldn’t have done it without these fine people:
I’d like to thank Hattie Root Photography for taking the time out of her busy schedule to take the photos. I can’t wait to see them, I know they are going to be amazing! Check out her website and you can see for yourself she does great work.
Also a big shout out to Amanda at Brown’s the Florist Westshore for her amazing bouquet she made especially for the day. There is nothing like a bouquet to make you feel like a bride, and I sure did holding that pretty specimen.
And finally to Art & Soul Framing in Saanichton who were the ones to expertly re-frame my Grandmother’s wedding photo which was also part of the shoot but I won’t give away the details until I have the final photos.
Thank you so much for coming together and making the day even better! And that’s my little tease, you’ll have to wait like me to see the final shots which will be coming soon.
