I thought for awhile about doing another styled shoot now that I was living in Vancouver and wanted to connect with some local talent here. So after brainstorming with Umbrella Events, we thought of a Frida Kahlo inspired spring themed shoot! Which is fine by me as I adore her. I was once even Frida for Halloween one year. 🙂

We wanted to reflect the colourful Spanish culture. Cristie from Umbrella events mentioned Stretch Yoga Studio would be perfect for the shoot as it’s a blank slate with a ton of window light!! So we had a lot of  bright pops of colour and a lot of the backdrops were flowers and streamers. You can thank Make Merry Shop for those beauties. The cake table from Cora’s Cake Shop was my favourite as there was a mix of everything.  From mini cactus and succulent cakes, to the Mexican skulls that I’m loving! We also had a fun gold piñata from Kolorina Pinatas. 

We thought that dress was perfect for Frida as it was a boho off the shoulder lace number with frilly sleeves from Bisou Bridal.   We thought the flowers should also reflect the Spanish culture as well so that’s why there’s so many different ones all with pops of colour from Concept Floral. Also the other look that was TRULY nailed in this shoot was the epic makeup and hair crown from Save the date Beauty!  With those red lips, thick brows and colourful hair braid.  

We thought it would also be good to get our two gorgeous models Levi Sophia & Bland Brifkani to do a reception dinner. That’s why we have a lot of fun table set ups such as multicoloured utensils that were used as place holders, gold placemats, and pink and yellow paper to use underneath the plates. Another one of my favourites were the invitations from Fox and Fancy. It was very Frida inspired as it had a ton a flowers surrounding the edges, and had a great type on there it was very retro from a 1930’s art deco diner menu. We also managed to get some tasty treats from Edge Catering.  Cristie brought some gold coloured letters with her and we thought it would be interesting to do a Spanish “Te Amo” since we’re keeping to that theme. Which ended up working out pretty well, especially across that bright paper backdrop and that bright red table cloth and white chairs, with those colourful flowers as the centrepiece! Of course we can’t forget A & B Partytime rentals for all the magnificent props. 

We were also lucky enough to have some gorgeous vintage jewellery pieces from 100 Ways. Which included a very unique pink floral spiral ring with a gold band. We ended overlapping that one and another pink and navy blue floral ring as well to make it look more of a statement piece. The bracelet was very unique as well as it had a paisley design. It was made of gold and had intricate designs along the outside.
