Returning to Mexico and Playa del Carmen this year, we knew we wanted to pull together a few creative styled shoots. We started with wardrobe here in Vancouver because we wanted to ‘travel with’ a few of our home based gems. We got in touch with our new friends, the wonderfully brilliant Fern and Moon to lend us a few pieces. These exceptionally driven best friends are the masterminds behind this super versatile and supremely designed line of bridal separates. Their modern pieces offer any bride the perfect combination for her figure and style with soo many options from crop tops to bodysuits (with every desired sleeve or no sleeve option) to full skirts to the most impeccably fit pair of suit pants. AND on top of all that, they travel outrageously well! We also asked the amazingly talented Kady, the woman behind the so so stylish Jane Rhyan the Collection for a few of her stunning veils. She let us take all our top faves with a perfect mix of 60’s mod, timeless simplicity and just fun! One of her veils was so feisty that it kept taking air during one of the shoots… hopefully there will be a photo to prove it…
Once we had wardrobe and our Vancouver representation sorted, we set out to connect with a few inspiring local Playa del Carmen/Cancun/Tulum wedding talents and of course, ‘brides’ or our models!
The incredible thing about social media is the social factor and the ability to connect directly with anyone anywhere in the world. We searched hashtags for the areas we were in and scoured other accounts we already followed in these cities and surrounding towns. We were super lucky to discover the extraordinary Moni & Adri Photography and her super cool new video project Sail the Veil and their awesome team. And we reached back to last years connections, friends and photographers we had met, like the totally talented Hideki of Button Up Photography who introduced us to his new endeavour the WLKRS with his lovely and also talented friend Andre Gouin Photography. We also connected with some wildly gorgeous models Tonje, Aleksandra and Luna. It is seriously awe-inspiring how it all comes together. Having an idea, sharing the idea, connecting, chatting, brainstorming, troubleshooting and really making new friendships and connections based on wanting to create beauty together. Everyone we connected with during our creative shoots showed up this way, open, friendly, present and excited to be there and create something special. We even had gorgeous and glam venues like Andaz Mayakoba and El Pueblito Mayakoba open their doors to host us because we reached out with a determination and a plan/dream.
We can’t wait to show you what we have been up to (even more) during our travels in the Mayan Riviera, to show you more of our love of creating and collaborating with other inspired people!!!
