A Rock and Roll Meets Glam Styled Shoot

November 2, 2023 BY: Bailey

“Whether as wedding planner, creative director or content creator, I always want to surround myself with the best people in their field, and this shoot was no exception. In partnership with a TOTAL dream team of vendors, this Rock Glam styled shoot is for those push the envelope thinkers, outside-the-box doers and the “I wanna see something different” type of people. The rundown…. Venue: From day 1, The Polygon Gallery was the only place for this shoot. It is a blank slate which allows you to really make it your own and transform it to whatever vibe you are going for. Photography: This was not going to be a mainstream shoot, and as such it was important to have a non-mainstream photographer at the helm. We were so blessed that Tomasz Wagner was stoked about this concept and joined the team right off the top! Tomasz brings an eye and style like no other. Décor: As far as colors, black was definitely going to have a major presence in this shoot, and nothing was better suited for this look then Loungeworks Avenue Collection of black on black inventory. The Avenue black bar back, bar, dining table and round bar backs were to die for, and just the right statement pieces. Koncept Event Design provided all the tabletop décor and the killer mirror pillars (used for the welcome sign and cake stands) which added a touch of sophistication & Little Rose Party Company designed a fabulous matte black balloon install which was a definite wow piece. Floral Design: Floral genius Maxime Vialade of Écorce Flowers brought in softer elements which gave the overall space more dimension and created stunning & sculptural floral pieces. He concentrated on white as the color with a touch of silver hues and used roses, babies breath, anthurium and palms (to name a few). Stationery & Signage: Although acrylic and cardstock have been a continuing trend, it was important to mix it up for this shoot. Mirrors were used as the base for the majority of signage and stationery which complimented the disco ball install from Loungeworks nicely. Amari of Making Memories w/ Stationery, who designed the pieces and Ray from Printed By Ray who provided all the materials & did the laser printing & vinyl, totally hit it out of the park! Cuisine: It was a top priority that the cuisine featured was not only super luxurious but something you don’t normally see – enter, Edge Catering. As Vancouver premiere choice for luxury catering, Edge delivered absolute perfection with their unique custom menu created just for this shoot! It was total culinary artistry from beginning to end! Cake: Tanya, from Le Gateau Bake Shop is a maverick when it comes to wedding cakes, so it was a no-brainer to collaborate with her on this shoot. Tanya brought in softer touches with her 3 cakes which helped balance out all the edgier pieces. Hair/MU: Hair and makeup are such an integral (and beautiful) part of any shoot. Eugenia from Makeup by Supernova & her hair stylist, Yulia are absolute masters at what they do. This shoot was about being effortlessly glam and Eugenia and Yulia most definitely hit the mark. Fashion: It was important to have our models in 2 looks – one a bit more traditional, and the other a “party all night” outfit. For our groom, Bespoke Made Suits designed Scott a custom tux that was SO slick. We started the shoot with Scott fully decked out and then for the second look he took off the shirt and bow tie. As someone with his body almost entirely tattooed, I knew that a no-shirt look was essential. For our bride, Clara, it was hard to choose, but it was the sexy yet understated Blake gown from Vagabond Bridal (available at Everly Fine Bridal), that was the final pick for the first look. For our bride’s second look, 100% it was going to be Fern & Moon as they are the definition to cool bridal & their new Sam Crop with Portia Mini was the perfect selection. It’s not a wedding without rings and I was so happy to be able to feature 3 gorge rings from the very popular Cavalier Gastown in our flat lay shots. This Glam Rock shoot was a blast to produce with a team of immensely gifted vendors. I hope that it gives couples fresh new ideas on how they can have an envelope pushing, outside the box thinking wedding of their own.”
