Floral dresses for weddings are definitely on trend for 2015. Bridesmaids in pretty pastel prints and bold blooms are popping up on wedding blogs left and right. After the recent article by the Calgary Bridal Association, Tara decided to track down floral bridesmaid dresses that are available to ladies shopping here in Calgary.
March of this year a talented group of Calgary bridal vendors collaborated together to transform a wedding space in Priddis Alberta from ordinary to extraordinary. We transformed a small heritage homestead – barn at the base of luxury boutique hotel – Azuridge, into elegant complete with luxury and bright coloured spring florals, linens, silverware, menu cards, cake and our own beautiful bride!
For this photoset The Art of Beauty created unique flower-inspired hairstyle design complemented with bright and yet elegant makeup that might be great addition to any collection of perfect bridal look ideas you might have.
Remember the days when women “stayed at home,” and did all the cooking, cleaning, never had a job or career, just stayed at home and raised the children: Women were all expected to be typical Stepford Wives. These images were depicted in famous works by many artists, most notably Norman Rockwell.
The inspiration for this pinup shoot came from the satirical (humorous) spin put on these images, for example the ones featured here:
These inspired Lyana so much that she decided to collaborate with the best, locally, to recreate these images with her own added flare. Together with Csaba Diglics (photographer), A Vintage Affair (clothing), Just Cake Me (vintage cake) Oleksandr Nadoloshko (Videographer) and the stunning Summer Morgan of Sophia Models Int.(model), they recreated this funny, timeless beauty that every woman can relate to.
Lyana used her exceptional makeup and skill to transform Summer’s face into a porcelain perfect, image of a vintage house wife. Her hair was curled with a victory roll in the centre of her forehead… And from there the magic began.
As you can see, the images are absolutely pristine. This is the result of an amazing team working together, and naturally Csaba and Lyana’s amazing talents together.
Working with Csaba is such a pleasure. He’s well experienced in both the fashion and wedding industry, and his work speaks volumes about his talent. His pictures are truly breathtaking. His post production editing isn’t over exaggerated, it makes everyone look their absolute best (especially when teamed up with lyana’s perfectly styled hair and makeup). I have yet to see an image from Csaba that I don’t like, every single photo he takes is magical. (The ones he took of me are still some of my favourite). Not only is he professional but also very kind and has a sweet nature, he truly is a joy to work with. I highly recommend his talents.
Speaking of recommending talents, Lyana has put together a list of trusted professionals in the wedding industry available here: theartofbeauty.ca/calgary-wedding-vendors
And lastly behind the scenes Oleksandr caught some candid footage of how this magic actually takes place! Stay tuned for that!
I can’t express enough how in awe I am of this shoot. Lyana truly sees beauty in every aspect of the world and not only show cases it, but creates a masterpiece. Lyana truly is artist in every sense of the word. I look forward to the next inspirational beauty you have for us!
