Wedluxe Editorial: Pride and Prejudice

As seen in Wedluxe Magazine.

Last fall we had the honor of having our Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice shoot featured in Wedluxe Magazine and I just realized that I never shared it here, better late then never! Pride and Prejudice is one of my most favorite books (little unknown fact: it also inspired my 12th grade grad dress choice-no I will not be sharing photos!).

Set in the early 19th century in England, Pride and Prejudice is the story about how not even the strongest of pride can stand in the way of true love. I loved Elizabeth’s strong character, her passion and her determination for not marrying for any reason other than true love. Equally, I loved Mr Darcy’s silent admiration of her loyalty to her family, her intelligence and her beauty of course. This was a challenging editorial for me as I really struggled to convey the love and chemistry between Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy without having a Mr Darcy in the shoot. I decided to use their love letters and the color contrast of a blushy pink and periwinkle blue to help communicate their love. Little did I know during the design process, but a few short months after our editorial was published, Pantone announced the 2016 colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. I love being ahead of the trend!

These editorials are a labor of love and creativity and they are not possible without the hard work of an incredible team. A. Elizabeth Cake’s utterly blew me away when she showed me that she had created not one, but three cakes for this shoot with love quotes from the book and a painting of the English countryside. I may have cried when I saw them. Gloria and her team at Flower Factory understood my vision and brought it to life. The details on our lovely horse’s harnesses, all floral, are breathtaking. Our horse was so patient with us and loved the camera. Please see below for the full list of talented contributors.

I hope you enjoy!

Silvana + Pawel’s Summer Wedding

Wedding Planning by Alicia Keats | Wedding Photography by Lucida

We are so thrilled to be able to share Silvana and Pawel’s beautiful summer wedding with you this sunny Sunday morning. From the second I met Silvana and her family, I was dying to work with them. It was a perfect fit. We had a great group of creatives on involved in bringing the wedding vision to life starting with Ashley and the team at Bisou Bridal and Love by Phoebe who provided all of the stationary.  Just like today, the weather was perfect for Silvana + Pawel’s wedding. The ceremony was held at the Celebration Pavilion in Queen Elizabeth Park. Nadia add her magic with Silvana’s hair and makeup and Flower Factory did an outstanding job on the flowers….peonies anyone?!

The reception followed in the beautiful ballroom at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel. This is one of my favorite ballrooms, it is bright, light and the service is always outstanding. Upright Decor added some of their magic to really transform the room. The intricate details, soft colours of the floral centerpieces and the ombre macaron cake by Soirette added a delicate feel to the reception. After dinner, guests then danced the night away with SideOne Band. We hope you enjoy taking a look at Silvana and Pawel’s special day. It was such a pleasure to work with them. I wish we could do it all over again!

With Love,

Alicia xoxo

Corinna and Mike’s Shaughnessy Restaurant Wedding

Wedding Coordination by Alicia Keats | Wedding Photography by ShoeBox Photography.

I met Corinna years ago, before she was even engaged. We would chat about my job, what I think makes a beautiful wedding, what she was dreaming of for her wedding and as we were chatting, I would always say to myself, I really hope I can be a part of Corinna’s wedding one day. So you can imagine how excited I was when Corinna reached out to me and said that she was starting to plan her wedding and could I be a part of it. I was ecstatic!

Corinna and Mike wanted an understated West Coast wedding, filled with natural elements and personal touches, great food and most importantly, they wanted to make sure that it was a really good time for their friends and family.

The wedding ceremony took place on the newly renovated patio at Shaughnessy Restaurant in Van Dusen Gardens. The weather could not have been better for a late September wedding as you can see by the magic light ShoeBox Photograhy captured after the ceremony was over. The aisle was lined with garlands of laurel leaves and Posy created two stunning arrangements in birch bark vases for the top of the aisle. The reception was inside the restaurant, with understated touches of rosemary sprigs on each place setting and more beautiful West Coast inspired arrangements by Posy. Hilarious and touching speeches followed throughout dinner. Corinna and Mike opted to cut the pie instead of a wedding cake which was lovingly made by a family member for them. And then it was time to dance and drink the night away. As I watched Corinne and Mike on the dance floor surrounded by their loved ones, I couldn’t help but smile and feel giddy to be able to have been a part of their day after so many years of wishing that I would be.

With love,

Alicia xoxo
