If you were to ask me how many times I've watched Beauty and the Beast growing up, I probably already lost count. I've watched it plenty of times that I know the lyrics to every song and know the lines of each character by heart - I know, you're probably thinking I'm crazy but WHO DOESN'T LOVE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST? It's a classical Disney movie that has all sorts of pretty and distinctive elements and catchy songs - so what's not to love?
When I was five, I dreamed of remaking my favourite Disney Movie. I told myself, I will somehow recreate Beauty and The Beast and do my own take to it. Well as you can see, that obviously didn't happen.
Fast-forward to many years later, the thought about recreating Beauty & The Beast was still on my mind and it was not until recently, I found the perfect opportunity to do so- through a styled shoot.
Who would've thought that the opportunity would literally just present itself to me? After stumbling upon Hart House and getting their event coordinator to say yes to my request to collaborate, the planning started shortly. I already had a few vendors in mind and finding the rest would literally just be a breeze and so it was.
When the day came, it was everything I hoped it would be. From the dress, flowers, decor and the model (mind you she was the perfect belle and he was the perfect beast), it was just super magical and I thought to myself, wow - I was able to plan and execute this with a great team of vendors behind me and we made this shoot come to life!
It was a magical shoot indeed - oh and it's even more magical because this dreamy shoot was recently featured on The Wedding Planner Magazine's Blog. AMAZING RIGHT? Well, I could honestly say it was a dream come true and I'm truly honoured to have had the opportunity to work with such amazing vendors who made this all happen with me.
I picked my favourite photos from this shoot. If you'd like more information and to see more photos, head on over to The Wedding Planner Magazine's Blog by clicking the link above.
Oh and feel free to fall in love to this beautiful classical animation by watching out behind-the-scenes video below!
THIS SHOOT IS ALL SORTS OF DREAMY. I'm still in awe of everything we did and I wouldn't have been able to pull this off without the following vendors!
