When Judy Pak asked if I wanted to collaborate on a styled shoot with her, I jumped at the chance. Despite it being October and the peak of wedding season for many of us wedding folk, I just adore Judy's works so much, I had to find a way to work with her on this. I am very happy I did! It was so much fun working on this styled shoot with a super talented group of people. We wanted to create a Great Gatsby styled shoot with a young indie rock and roll twist. The de Seversky Mansion served as the perfect location for the shoot.
Michelle Edgemont styled the shoot and handmade so many unique items. Including the geometric paper decor for the ceremony arch and the confetti bags, which matched the invitation envelope liner from Make Merry.
Tara from Barbara’s Flowers kept the floral decor loose and wild, with pops of colour of romantic burgundy.
Julie from Big City Little Sweets provided a delectable dessert table of goodies. Her cake pops are ridiculously good. Luckily for us, we got to eat them after the shoot. What I wouldn't give to have a few more right now!
The book's couple were called Daisy and Jay, so Judy thought it would be fun to use the same initials in our shoot. We named our couple Dahlia and Jayden, and Michelle Edgemont handmade these awesome signs to go over the bar.
Many thanks to everyone for lending their time and talent to this shoot. Special thanks to Judy Pak Photography for sharing these dreamy images.
