Today we are sharing mystery and magic wedding shoot deep in the woods! Becca at Rivkah Photography teamed up with the planners and designers at Blushing Ivy to run wild with that magical theme, creating a visionary day straight out of a fairy tale.
Tucked away in the rainforest of Sooke, British Columbia lies Cedar Haven Weddings, a venue lush with fern, cedar, and all of the green offerings of the West Coast. This sanctuary, as its name proclaims, is truly a haven that acted as the perfect setting for our modern day fairy tale elopement. Lead by newcomers to the wedding industry, Blushing Ivy and Ingrid Rose Floral Artistry, the color palette and vision for this magical day was ultimately determined by the changing seasons.
As winter became spring and cherry blossoms began to bloom, the stylists chose soft mauves, blush pinks, and ivories, complimented by a pop of pink – an ode to the start of spring and the colors to come. Of course, no fairy tale is complete without a muse. The muse here was Belle, a strong female lead who challenged the social ideologies of her time and made us all want to head to the bookshop, tuck into a comfy chair, and read of far away adventures.
The bride wore a Maggie Sottero gown from Blush Bridal Boutique, with royal hair and makeup by Prive Beauty Lounge. Didn’t she portray Belle the best way possible? Studio 745‘s brilliant calligraphy brought the story to life. Ingrid Rose Floral Artistry is the true genius behind that cherry blossom backdrop and all the gorgeous floral details.
