Last week, we shared part-one or our two-part editorial with Blush Bridal and Coco Events & Weddings, and we are very excited to reveal the rest of this gorgeous story! Part-one revealed a playful and feminine side to Rosa Clará and Soft by Rosa Clará; two of the newest additions to Vancouver's Blush Bridal.

In part-two, the impressive juxtaposition of this editiorial is revealed; illuminating an entirely new, dramatic side to Rosa Clará. Lara Taylor, of Vancouver-based Coco Events & Weddings, led the creative direction for the editorial and shares the inspiration behind it:

"Inspired by our travels in the East, and our years living in Southeast Asia, we were energized by the myriad of textures and colors in the décor used for celebrations, and in places of worship. We were captivated by the use of rich, strong, metallic, jewel tones and weighted fabrics; contrasted against light and delicate florals, folded papers, and lights.

This shoot was meant to portray the emotions and feelings brought about by two opposing elements. In part one, the paper floral wall created an intricate and whimsical canvas for portraying the delight and playfulness evoked by the anticipation surrounding one's wedding, that one magical day. In part two, the rose gold metallic wall acted as a bold contrast; showing elegance and expressing an intrinsic thread of tradition."

Camboya offers brides a modern, beautiful way to truly feel like a princess on their wedding day. We love the way the lace overskirt cascades over the layers of soft tulle.

Megan Toriglia, of Toriglia & Co., continues to amaze us by capturing one mood after the other and expertly portraying Rosa Clará's versatility.

The next setting takes Rosa Clará in yet another direction; from regal and romantic, to elegant and striking.

Evan, of Flowerz, certainly rose to the challenge when it came to creating two opposing sets for this editorial; this tablescape matches the refinement and elegance of Santel, beautifully.
