Bright & Beautiful Wedding Collaboration
Posted: Jul 09 2014
On a very magical evening down at Jericho Beach, 5 local kick ass entrepreneurs modeled some of our dresses as part of a Wedding Collaboration photo shoot. The intention of our “Wedding Season” shoot was to illustrate how wonderful our dresses can be for a bridal party. However, when you have gorgeous, inspiring and intelligent women all dolled up, it’s impossible not to get photos of each on their own. Absolutely stunning in our bright and bold Summer 2014 colours, not only are they beautiful, but also the beauty of what they do and who they are can’t help but shine through.
Photography: Jamie Lauren Photography
We were very honored when Jamie came on board to work with us. Jamie is one of the most sought after photographers in town and her shots speak for themselves. She prides herself on being able to capture true personalities…and even “camera personalities” that may not otherwise show on a day-to-day basis, most often resulting in moments that feel natural and look absolutely beautiful. Jamie was a real pro to work with, she took control of the shoot and made the whole experience very easy and fun for everyone involved.

Anyone familiar with the Vancouver’s food truck scene has probably already heard of Culver City Salads.

Dressings are made from scratch, gluten free and vegan. They work with local farms, whole ingredients, and strive to be as sustainable as possible, using only 100% compostable packaging. Recently Culver City Salads reached their fundraising goal on indiegogo to get a solar-powered food truck. #Welldone!

Bride: Erin Treloar
We’ve been following Raw Beauty Talks on instragram and have been truly inspired by its mission. Real women. No makeup. No Photoshop. No filters.

What a perfect person to be our ‘bride’. Congrats Erin! You are truly the embodiment of ‘I AM LOVE’.
