Vancouver Engagement Photos by Simply Sweet Photography, Full Post at www.elsacorsi.com

These days, most photographers include a pre-wedding shoot or Engagement Shoot with their photo packages for your big day. Don't miss out on the opportunity to have little fun with it!

Whether you are normally shy or or a selfie queen, this is a great moment to get cozy with the people you will be spending a lot of time with on your wedding day! The best photos are always the ones where you can let your true smiles out naturally!

It's also an opportunity to experiment with some hair and makeup styles without the pressure of it being on the wedding day! We find our brides like to do a little more of a playful style for these shoots and opt for a classic bridal style for the actual day. So it is a great way to satisfy all your style aspirations!

All of the jewellery and hair accessories from this shoot are available online now for purchase.

Elsa Corsi

It could be said that Elsa Corsi was destined to become a jewellery designer. Heralding from a long line of Italian shoemakers turned merchants, it was only natural that she inherit a passionate eye and skill to pursue aesthetic beauty. It was in 2006, to celebrate her own wedding that she came out with a dedicated collection of bridal jewellery. Clients were attracted to the vintage technique mastered in the collection and were thrilled to have their own piece of heirloom jewellery. Her bridal and special occasion jewellery has been sought out by the city’s top stylists and fashion editors for photo shoots and Real Brides wearing Elsa Corsi jewellery are regularly featured online and in print in Real Weddings, Weddingbelles, Grace Ormonde and Wedluxe Magazine.
 

FEATURED: Carrie + Mr. Big in Wedluxe Magazine

It is so fun after many accessory visits to see a brides Bridal Style Vision come to life and be featured in the pages of Wedluxe Magazine! Carrie had already chosen a beautiful Romona Kaveza Gown with clean lines and gorgeous sparkling belt so as soon as we saw the photos she brought we knew we had the perfect earrings to go with! Voila! The Kara Earrings!

Carrie, Lori Miles, Wedluxe

A bridal belt is kind of what we like to call a "Necklace for the waist" so opting for a bit of a longer earring to go with it eliminates the need for a necklace and creates an overall balanced look!

This is such sweet moment of her sister helping her put the jewels on, especially because we also did her sisters wedding jewellery about seven years ago! 

Sisters, Lori Miles, Vancouver Wedding

If you are wondering why all her girls look so fabulous...it is not just because her other sister owns a fabulous beauty parlor called The Glamoury that we have blogged about before!

Bridal Party, Lori Miles, Vancouver Wedding

...it's because they got it from their mama! No boring Mother of The Bride outfits here! We love this sparkly ensemble complete with our Three Marquise Post Earrings and darling Hair Pins from Jeweliette Jewellery!

A West Coast Wedding As Seen In Style Me Pretty

Style Me Pretty is one of everybody's favorite wedding blogs! It showcases oodles of inspiring content and some of the most beautiful weddings around the world. So naturally when one of our brides is featured on it-we are thrilled!

Set within the super stylish walls of the Rosewood Hotel Georgia and bedecked with white blooms and leafy greens from Garden Party Flowers, not even our Vancouver rain could put a damper on Betty and Steve's beautiful day!

Betty wore our Pave Halo Earrings and double strand, freshwater pearl Violetta Bracelet. Each bracelet is hand strung to order so we were able to customize the fit of the bracelet to a perfect size. We then hid the clasp with a sparkling design of Swarovski crystals so there are no gaps or hanging chains, just a seamless circle of beautiful jewellery.

Both of Betty's pieces are available in our Online Shop and can be customized at check out.

Real Wedding | All The Pretty Details

Styling lace wedding gowns is one of our favorites! There is just something so classic and so creamy about this fine fabric that makes it perfect for a wedding day and a natural compliment to our pearl and signature marquise designed jewelry. 

We love that Chrissy chose our Petite Elsa Button Earring and Petite Jasmine Necklace to compliment her beautiful gown from Isabelle's Bridal. The Petite Jasmine features three beautiful strands of freshwater pearls that we knot individually using silk and then flanked on either side with two brooch-like designs. The smaller piece in this particular set was designed to go with the earrings perfectly!

Real Bride: Irene Lee Nails Her Wedding Day Style (Literally)!

Our brides are pros at nailing their wedding day style, and when they are also Irene Lee of Pure Nail Bar- they are nailing it in real life as well! Irene is the founder of the popular beauty chain and just recently welcomed a new baby into the fold at Marine Gateway, Pure Beauty Bar, which includes the whole gamut of beauty services from hair to waxing.

We loved her choice of a flirty, short Monique Lhuillier gown! Clearly it was hit, as the newlyweds turned heads and stopped traffic on one of the busiest intersections in the city!

We were so honored to have played a sparkling part of her wedding day and delighted when she invited us to come experience a NCLA Gel Pedicure at the new Pure Beauty Bar. We couldn't help but think to ourselves during the foot massage, what a great location this would be for a pre-wedding pampering party! Be sure to check out their Instagram and www.purenailbar.com to take advantage of their opening specials ( $49 for a mani and a pedi, hello!)

A Modern Ismaili Celebration

We love it when brides find a way to infuse their cultural traditions into their wedding day style, like Narmin did by combining Mehndi with her sparkling Elsa Corsi jewels!  

Vancouver Ismaili Wedding

If you are not familiar with the practice of Mehndi art, it is henna that is applied in elaborate designs a few days before the wedding to the hands and legs of the bride. This ceremony is believed to symbolize happiness, love and prosperity & strength in marriage. 

Bridal Mehndi Vancouver

The Mehndi remains on the hands and legs of the bride to develop the color of the henna. It is believed that "the darker the Mehndi, the deeper the love".

Vancouver Ismaili Wedding

For Narmins first look, she wore our Nicole Earring! The marquise crystal shapes used in both the bracelet and earring are the perfect compliment to each other!

And then for the evening, she did the ol' switch-a-roo into our Margo Earring and a stunning Jenny Packham style gown. Very Old Hollywood meets Bollywood meets Gatsby, we love it!

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Love Narmins style? You can shop both the Nicole Earring and Margo Earring in our Online Shop!
