Great Gatsby Styled Shoot

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.

Jenny Packham's Azalea gown was just breathtaking.  So beautiful from the front and the back.  Emily Riggs created the pretty hair pieces we used.

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.

Big City Little Sweets

Look what a beautiful box we received last week!  I met with Julie the owner of Big City Little Sweets.  We connected immediately after I heard about how she also left her big corporate job to pursue something that she truly loves.  It was clear how passionate she is about creating these elegant bite-sized desserts and I know she would be a total pleasure to work with.  She generously gave me a box of delectable treats to try!

Move over cupcakes.  I totally adore these cake lollies!  I don't really like things that are too sweet and these were just the perfect level of sweetness.  The cake inside was incredibly moist and flavoursome.  The thin layer of icing on the outside creating a perfect crunch as you bite.  Crazy good.  I think these are so perfect for weddings.  Eating a cupcake, especially a large one, can be a messy affair.  These are such an elegant parcel.  I can see guests grabbing some of these and heading back to the dance floor to eat them.  Big City Little Sweets also offers mini pies, tarts, macarons, cookies and cupcakes.  They can custom design a dessert bar for you.  A table filled with these beauties would be an incredible addition to any wedding, birthday or shower.
