Whimsical Dream by Sanaz Safari

I’ve taken a while to blog this shoot + these photos are so incredibly near + dear to me.

When I planned this shoot, I envisioned soft + ethereal, modern + whimsical. The power of simplicity through the use of neutrals brought the vision to life. I embody this with my work as I believe this is a great representation of my brand.

Muted tones with textured fabrics portrayed the effortless aesthetic. By intentionally promoting a lack of contrast, balance was inspired through pops of color.

Overall, the concept stayed on trend through minimalism, + this shoot came together perfectly and was oh so dreamy!!

Garden Inspiration by Sanaz Safari

Hello !

I’m excited to feature this stunning garden inspired shoot that I was honoured to be part of!! This was indeed the first styled shoot for me at Grey Harlowe Collective. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to connect with each of these amazing vendors + creatives, and to see it featured on Real Weddings! (yayy!!)

The scene was set along a stunning backdrop of the pavilion, where the ceremony and sweetheart table set up shined beautifully; a creamy soft blushing rose + peach palette with lush greenery was soft and whimsical and so sooo pretty!! The stunning floral arch was the focal point of this shoot and all other decor aspects complemented it perfectly.

For this shoot, we were involved in the decor and styling aspect. We utilized our rental inventory and as well some additional decor pieces.

tip: the addition of items such as ghost chairs and lucite accents add a modern touch and balance. As trends continue through a minimalist approach, utilizing furniture + decor pieces made from clear, transparent materials like acrylic and lucite add a chic touch. My favourite approach is to blend in lucite with vintage decor. It’s a sure way to maintain the bold, vintage vibes, while still remaining super chic!

From the beautiful invitation set + menu cards to the rustic benches; the gorgeous ball gown and soft braided hair style, it all came together wonderfully to showcase a vision that is sure to inspire so many brides + grooms for their special day :)

((( RANDOM SIDE NOTE: A dream of mine growing up was to work as a stylist. It was between magazine editor + fashion stylist, but never did I imagine I would be involved in wedding styling + coordinating. I LOVE IT! )))
