Enchanted Garden Shoot on Vancouver Island


Today is Vale + Vine's 50th post.  In the 9 years I've been blogging about my travels and my photography work on my personal blog, I have likely published more than 50 posts, but 50 in 2 months (10 weeks to be exact)?  Well that's a new level of blogging commitment for me that just feels like something to celebrate!  

So beginning today, I'm starting a week-long celebration in honour of fine art wedding inspiration as interpreted by Canadian industry professionals.  I wanted to kick off that celebration with a styled shoot photographed by Rebecca Amber, featuring florals by Clare Day, and I'm so grateful to share their gorgeous collaboration.  It's moody and sweet all at once, and offers a sense of heritage and timelessness.  The gardens of Villa Marco Polo create a lush ambience that speaks to its Pacific Northwest feel, but also offer a distinctly European flair that contributes to the shoot's heirloom quality.

Thank you all so much for joining Vale + Vine in this journey as Canada's first fine art wedding blog dedicated to emphasizing natural elements and outdoor settings from across the country and beyond our borders.  I'm so excited to watch how the community surrounding and supporting Vale + Vine continues to grow in the future, and am looking forward to this coming week as I'll be sharing some of those opportunities with you all.
