The vision for this styled shoot was born when Cyndi Sweeney of East Coast Glamping approached us (Styled in Lace) with an idea to feature their luxury safari-style canvas tents in a way that would be attractive to couples as a place to host their wedding or as a place to relax on their honeymoon.
From there, an incredible group of local wedding pros came on board to collaborate, with Melissa Fendley of Paige & Peacock Event Design overseeing the design, décor, florals, and set up. Chantal Routhier Photography beautifully captured the seaside glamping styled wedding shoot and showcased each wedding vendors contributions perfectly.
Polka Dot Cakes baked the delicious raspberry and grapefruit naked-cake and maple whoopie pies, while Atlantic Oak Island Resort & Marina created hors d'ouerves and a haskap berry cocktail.
Paper Pony Co. created the custom, hand-painted stationery, while Make Merry Events provided the vintage rentals and Boom Builds provided the wood charger plates - all completing the rustic vision perfectly.
Our beautiful model, Jamie Smith, had her hair styled by Karen MacDonald and wore a flower crown by Oh Dina!, while Selena Marchand applied Jamie's makeup. Katrina Tuttle Bridal created a custom-designed dress for the styled shoot and looked incredible on Jamie. Jamie rocked a necklace and wedding band designer, Locusart Jewellery, and earrings from Harper & Honey.
The airy and romantic bell tents, set against the backdrop of a beautiful orchard and along the shores of Atlantica Oak Island Resort & Marina, served as the primary inspiration for this styled shoot. Our idea was to help couples think outside of the box with a wedding style full of colour and vibrancy in a natural setting.
The fresh, spring colour palate of fiesta coral, lush green and rose quartz accented with copper and limpet shell, highlighted the chosen location of an orchard by the sea. The vibrant snorkel blue colour was inspired by a vintage camp fire pot from East Coast Glamping's accessories collection and made all the other colours pop.
