AG Photography

Darren and I chose our wedding photographer right after we got engaged. It was a very important decision for us, and I think it was probably the thing that Darren cared about the most in the planning process.

Amanda Gallant of AG Photography caught our eye pretty early on, and we snapped her up right away. We really love her work and we are so excited to have her capture our day. You can check out her blog here.

I was on her website a while back and I noticed some beautiful pictures she took. It was a series called "On the Bus". These photos made me feel very nostalgic. Growing up in Alberta and having a family who loves to ski, we often took winter drives through the prairies to the mountains. There is something so magical and dreamy about a still, snowy landscape. These pictures sum up that feeling perfectly and is one of the reasons Darren and I wanted to have a winter wedding in Banff. Another thing-I am a huge sucker for negative space.

It is officially summer!  Vancouver has pulled through today and made me believe it.  What an amazingly sunny day.  I can't wait to finally take advantage of how amazing this city is in the summer.  The beach, barbecues with friends, patios, road trips, listening to Vampire Weekend (I can listen to them all year round, but to me they will always be a summer band).  So many great things to look forward to in the next upcoming months.

One thing that I love to do in the summer is hang dry my laundry outside.  I love getting the smell of fresh air in my clothes.

More stores

My bags are going to making their way into more stores in the next upcoming months, which means that I have been sewing tons. Today I was cutting out some new bags that are going to be here specifically.

Favorite is a wonderful little shop in North Vancouver that sells exclusively Canadian designers.

I have not been posting very much lately for two reasons.  The first is that I had visitors, and the second is that Vancouver has become a bit hockey crazy.

Yesterday we lost, but we are all crossing our fingers for game 7.  Darren, myself and some friends headed downtown last Friday right after we won game 5.  It was so crazy to be in the crowd with so many happy people.  It reminded me of the Olympics.

The Bridal Pouch

The perfect size to throw some makeup, a phone, some mints, and a couple Kleenex.

Or the Mini Rectangle if you are wanting a bit more leather...

Calling All Brides!

Wedding season is approaching so I will be making/posting more bridal bags.  I just posted this one yesterday.  If you are wanting something custom, please contact me in advance, as white and cream recycled leather is a lot harder to come by!

Blue day

Blue is my favorite color. Today I gave into my instincts and used all blue. Some will be available here. Others will be sent off to stores.
