Well this was a fun styled wedding shoot! The power of positive thinking really came into play this day.
The weather started off sunny and beautiful, and I had everything all packed up, waiting by the door to be taken to the lookout at Bertram Creek Park. Then the sky decided to change it up a bit. I got calls from everyone involved wondering if we were going to brave the wind and rain storm that had started in on our shoot location. However I was determined and optimistic enough for everyone that we were going to be ok.
Some say that it is good luck if you get rain on your wedding day – and I think it is. It poured the morning of on mine and the day of my vintage gold, maroon and nude styled wedding shoot in Kelowna. I think both days turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.
So if it rains on your wedding just keep saying “it will be fine, don’t worry” and it will be. I think the dark clouds gave the soft toned colour palette a bit of depth.
I purchased the flowers from Art Knapp here in Kelowna BC and arranged them myself – a great way to save money on your wedding day is to do the flowers yourself.
I also made and decorated the cake the day before the shoot. I was going for that nude, or naked cake look. It was a little soggy by the end of the day, being in the rain but the cast and crew ate it anyway.
