A Glamorous Affair: Winter Inspiration

January 18, 2016
On behalf of a star studded cast from Ottawa, Canada, I'm just 'bursting-at-the-seams-excited,' to share this amazing shoot entitled, ‘A Glamorous Affair.’

Make no mistake about it, m'dears! I'm 100% smitten. Because, you guys? Somewhere between the first image and last image of this shoot is my ultimate happy place.

It's a design-lovers dream brought to life by Ali and BatoulPearl Decor, and Ottawa Flowers, and it's guaranteed to have you swooning in  oh you know, about .2 seconds flat.

 A Glamorous Affair: Winter Inspiration

Shot just last month in December, this wintry wedding inspiration has it all!

From the designer, "We were inspired by old vintage Hollywood, earthly greens of a snowless winter, a palette of ruby red, marsala, fuchsia, light pink, navy blue and gold."

The berry tones within this palette were brought to life with plum and pomegranate fruit accents....

...as well as through a bright, bold lip color choice and the hypericum berries in the florals.

These little pops of berry gave vibrancy and warmth to the traditional gold and navy palette.

Mismatched vintage furniture proved to be a gorgeous choice...

Make-up artistry by Klava Zykova was done so beautifully...
