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.
 

Best Reds With Great Friends on www.ilikeherstyle.com {Part 2}

What an honor it was to be included in a follow up to our Fabulous Friends Creating Beautiful Business feature in the print issue of I Like Her Style Vancouver with Best Reds With Great Friends along side Jasmine Hoffman and Stephanie Lewis.

www.elsacorsi.com/blog

This feature was all about Red Wine and Red Lips! As Jasmine knows, we never wear a red lip however she assured us that she had the perfect red in her kit just for us! Exciting! Apparently, everyone has a perfect shade depending on their complexion and undertone.

Ours was Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in "Beso", a beautiful true red that looks great with any skin tone. Well, if it didn't have us channeling our inner Gwen Stefani! 

If you are ready to find your perfect red, you can book a makeup lesson with Jasmine Hoffman which includes a full face lesson, colour theory, take-home face chart and shopping lesson on how to choose the best brands and build your makeup kit.

A Black and Gold Color Palette

Styled shoots are one  of our favorite things to collaborate on. Not only do they  give us a chance to stretch our creative mojo but we also get to work with a collective group of professionals that are just as passionate about weddings we are! For this shoot, Planner and producer Pamela Nahal from Maude Weddings contacted us with her vision of a multi stacked statement ring. We loved making this piece and honing our filigree bending skills! Truly a one-of-a kind piece, it now resides in Pamela's personal collection!

Today we are sharing some of our favorite out takes from this Black and Gold Shoot that originally appear online at RealWeddings.ca

Lilac Love

Brides, you are going to want to get pinning once you see these soft, feminine details from our latest Style Shoot inspired by lilacs recently featured in Rocky Mountain Bride. Our new Kara Earring with a Vintage Rose Swarovski Crystal center was a perfect match paired with a blush Lazaro gown from Bisou Bridal.

We shot the photos in the middle of a field at Maple Ridge during sunset, which resulted in a soft and warm glow.

Although the shoot was originally planned to take place in a Buttercup Field, the yellow and purple combination worked out perfectly! Not only are they opposite but complimentary colors on the color wheel, this paring will also satisfy your inner Laker fan! To add this to your collection, visit our Sample Sale page to purchase this item.

Take Us To Sweden!

Our jewels are certainly living the glamorous life these days! First Paris, then Hawaii and now Sweden! This styled shoot was shot on location by Denise Lin Photography in Gotland, Sweden's largest and most charming island affectionately nicknamed the "Pearl of the Baltic". An island with a jewelry comparison? Obviously, we love it!

Gotland Sweden Wedding Photo, Full Credits at www.elsacorsi.com/blog/take-us-to-sweden

A custom backless gown from Little Pink Dress styled with a relaxed beauty look captures a medieval meets modern bridal style that feels right at home against a background of architectural delights. Turrets, castles and cobble stone streets alongside the natural beauty of a sandy shoreline give this destination an olde world charm that storybooks are made of.

And, of course, our jewels from Jeweliette Jewellery were there for just the right about of sparkle! Shown on the right, is a one-of-a-kind couture earring we designed featuring a rare color of Swarovski Crystal called "Stormy Crystal" paired with Cyclamen Opal and on the left our small version of The Vine Comb.

Valentine's Love

In the spirit of V-Day, we thought it would be apropos to do a boudoir post! Sure, it's the sexiest day of the year but why stop there? A boudoir photo session is a great way to keep the love going all year round and makes the perfect wedding, birthday or just-because gift for that special someone in your life! YOU! (But we don't think your guy will complain either *winks*)

As if you need an excuse to get pampered and feel empowered, a dreamy photo session with Nomo Akisawa of Simply Sweet Photography and make-up by Jasmine Hoffman is the perfect time to get all dolled up and embrace your unique beauty.

Bridal Boudoir Photoshoot Vancouver
And don’t think that you have to be a perfect 0 to do boudoir, look like a Victoria’s Secret model, or be as young. Boudoir is for every woman every shape & size, every age, and beauty is truly in everyone. You just have to leave it up to the photographer to embrace it. Boudoir is for the every day average woman – you DO NOT have to be a model.
— Nomo Akisawa, Photographer
image.jpg
Don’t be nervous to do one. I will guide and pose you, and use my creative eye to get all the right angles. You don’t walk in a model, but by the end of the session, I promise that you will feel like one! Stop giving yourself excuses as to why you can’t do one. Just do it!
— Nomo Akisawa, Photographer

Elsa Corsi Hearts Remmington

It's no secret that we are absolutely, ridiculously head over heels in love with all gowns Hayley Paige. She just gets us. And our jewels look fabulous with her creations! 

In particular, one of our favorites is the Remmington from her Fall 2015 Collection. Behold the beauty....

IMAGE VIA http://www.jlmcouture.com/

IMAGE VIA http://www.jlmcouture.com/

It is described as "Rosewater long sleeve A-line bridal gown, illusion floral beaded bodice with bateau neckline and low open back, layered English net circular skirt." Swoon!

So when we found out that our Calgary store, The Bridal Boutique, was bringing it with them to Vancouver for a styled shoot-we might have done a little happy dance! Aaaand it might have looked something like this...

Here are some of our favorite photos taken by Blush Wedding Photography of the Remmington Gown from the garden inspired styled shoot that ended up being featured on 100 Layer Cake! Just lie me in a bed of roses...

Hayley Paige Remmington Vancouver Hycroft

The lush grounds at Hycroft Mansion were enhanced with additional florals from Granville Island Florist. The result? If it were not for the characteristic Vancouver rain, we could have sworn were transported to a Tuscan Villa!

Hayley Paige Remmington Vancouver

Our Jennifer Earring incorporates various sizes of marquise crystals and teardrops into a beautiful culmination of sparkle! The double pointed edges on the marquise shape are a natural compliment to the botanical beadwork on The Remmington by Hayley Paige.

Hayley Paige Remmington Earrings
Hayley Paige Remmington Bracelet

In most cases, when accessorizing a long sleeved gown a bracelet is not always necessary. However, we could not resist pairing our Bee Bracelet that was color mixed in a combination of Light Silk and Crystal Clear Swarovski Crystals with this look! You can shop the Bee Bracelet in our Online Shop, here: http://www.elsacorsi.com/shoponline/beautiful-bee-bracelet
