We always love travelling up to the Sunshine Coast BC. It is such a beautiful, tranquil and special place. We love coming here for the environment, adventures, swimming and of course WEDDINGS!
Or in this case, a gorgeous bridal styled shoot with two of our most favourite Sunshine Coast wedding talents, Jennifer Picard Photography and Weddings by Sasha.
The inspiration for this shoot was the breathtaking simplicity of the stretching west coast and the calming surroundings of the pale blue sea and evergreen trees. Everything was about allowing the subtle details to shine, the long lines of the timeless Pure Magnolia gowns, the modern jewels by Sarah Mulder Jewelry and the minimal styling by Weddings by Sarah and the fresh bouquets she created.
For the hair and makeup we wanted the look to be really natural, flowing and soft. The skin was bright and glowing, with soft pinks and golds highlighting the eyes and cheeks. For the hair, we created soft waves and rustled curls and a long and loose mermaid braid with woven in curls. We love how the overall vibe of natural west coast beauty came through the amazing eye of Jennifer Picard Photography.
Big LOVE to our beautiful models Orianna & Rhea.
This is not the first time we have shared a wedding with the incredible PopUp Weddings, the awesome team who creates amazing elopement adventure ceremonies for their couples, with the collaboration of a small team of wedding professionals to facilitate and capture the special moment. This sweet couple chose one of their dreamy packages that include a helicopter ride up one of the gorgeous mountain ridges surrounding Vancouver for a private mountain top ceremony. But sometimes the weather refuses to cooperate and the team is forced to improvise. On this particular mid November day, the sky was so foggy, the helicopter had to land in this beautiful valley, which ended up being a perfect impromptu setting for their wedding ceremony.

When you hear the words ‘Destination Wedding’ your imagination is immediately swept away to sun drenched beaches, tropical blue waters and ceremonies in the sand. No tropical destination offers all these amazing things so accessibly like Mexico. Whether you dream of a boho barefoot on the beach ceremony or a luxurious 5 star resort terrace affair overlooking the ocean, Mexico has options for any budget. For high end glamour, the incredible Le Blanc Spa & Resort is a gorgeous choice for your destination wedding. Rated #1 resort in Cancun by Trip Advisor, they offer a range of ceremony styles to suit your taste, with even the most basic complementary option a totally breathtaking backdrop. Resort weddings can often take the pressure off of the couple, as they usually offer a one stop shop, with their choice wedding planner, photographers and stylists. This is something to keep in mind, as you may not be able to personally choose your own vendors. If you are looking for something more free spirited and DIY, consider one of the lovely little towns lining the Pacific Coast side. Just north of Puerto Vallarta lies the wonderful little town of Sayulita. This bustling surfers paradise is equally as idyllic a setting for your relaxed destination wedding. For a small party, consider renting out of the fancy private homes on SayulitaLife. If adventure and privacy are high on the list, the dreamy La Caletas Beach Hideaway, accessible only by boat may be the place for you. No matter where you choose, your Mexican destination wedding is sure to be an unforgettable host for memories to last a life time.

Planning a destination wedding can be as exciting as it is overwhelming. Make your life easy by throwing these 5 must have items into your destination wedding travel bag.
Sounds like a no brainer but finding a high quality, non harmful sunscreen on the road can be a challenge. Plan ahead and pick up Kiss My Face Sun Spray Lotion, not only is it easy to apply, it is water resistant and non nano. We also love this resource for checking how your favourite sunscreen measures up.
2. Waterproof Makeup
Absolutely essential for those teary moments or the hot summer heat. One of our favourites, for long lasting waterproof coverage is Makeup Forever Full Cover Concealer. There are shades to match any skin tone and it will totally keep you covered morning to night.
3. Anti Humidity Hair Spray
Keep those fly aways in place and combat any tropical humidity with Bamboo Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray by Alterna Haircare. We love Alterna because all their products are FREE of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates & other harsh or unnecessary additives.
4. Setting Spray
Keep your makeup in place without the ‘cakey’ look of too much powder. We love Urban Decay De-Slick Oil Control Makeup Setting Spray. Mist on this weightless spray to control oil, deflect surface shine and help makeup stay put all day.
5. Hair Oil
All the sun, sand and sea can really take a toll on your hair. Keep it healthy, shiny and frizz free with our most favourite hair oil, Davines Oi/ Absolute Beautifying Potion.

Sunlit surf and sand along the pebbly shores of Tower Beach. The styling is easy going summer beauty. Minimal makeup with peachy coral tones, playing to the slightly vintage styling of the second look with a pop of red lips. The hair is wind swept loose waves woven into romantic braids wrapped around the crown, adorned with wild flowers plucked from the lavish unruly floral bouquets. Bright blue skies overhead, the sand stretching languidly lined by the lush wall of greenery, make the perfect setting for this boho bridal beach themed shoot.
The Sunshine Coast BC is a little piece of British Columbian Paradise and an absolutely romantic location for your destination wedding. Just a ferry away, the Sunshine Coast Highway weaves along the serene coastline through tiny towns decorated with flowers and foliage and some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. At the edge of Halfmoon Bay, lies Sergeant Bay, the exquisite and tranquil location of this dreamy destination wedding shoot by our mobile hair and makeup stylists.

We are so pleased to share this amazing feature on Junebug Weddings with the incredibly sweet and talented jennifer armstrong photography. We all agree that it was such an honour to be a part of Cheryl & Tyler’s beautiful wedding at the completely magical Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island. Not only were the people, location and day absolutely wonderful, it was also our first introduction to the exceptional talented work of Olivia Headpieces. This wedding will forever remain one of our all time faves!
