Welcome and thank you for taking the time to read our very first blog post as Olive Tree Décor. We’ve had a few months to get into the groove of everything that this business has brought our way. We are thankful for the support all of you future brides have given us and we can’t wait for this upcoming wedding season.
How fitting that we start Our Journal with the sharing of a massive project.
A few months ago, in the early stages of Olive Tree Decor’s beginning, we found ourselves wanting to do something big to showcase not only our work, but the work of those we look up to. What better way to do that than creating a styled shoot. This would be our chance to highlight our inventory and the services of other wedding vendors in Prince George. We all met on the same page and wanted to step out of our comfort zone. It was our goal to show Prince George and area that there are new and upcoming wedding trends that are now readily available in town.
We have been so lucky to have the help of a group of women already successful in their businesses in this community. We realized early on that their help was going to be crucial in getting our idea off the ground. We first reached out to Mellissa, from Mellissa Receveur Photography who captured Kyla and Andrew’s wedding day. We had mentioned to Mellissa our business idea and from day one had her support and encouragement. It was a no brainer that we were going to ask her to take the photos of our styled shoot.
Having been wowed by a new floral presence in town we quickly reached out to Melissa from Something Blue Floral Design. Prince George is so lucky to have another addition to the Special Event Floral industry. Melissa’s work is stunning. Recently settling here from Ontario, she has brought her years of experience and creativity to a community that welcomes her with open arms.
We can’t say enough about the amazing art that North Soul Studios brings to Prince George. Dani was a warm and welcome addition to our shoot. Her calligraphy skills are out of this world! Her friendly and fun demeanor made it so easy to approach her with this idea.
And finally, Fabulous Cakes by Jenn. We have reached out in the past to Jenn to make cupcakes and cakes for our special life moments, and she never disappoints. Her work is exquisite! Her decorating skills are beautiful and they are by far the best cupcakes and cakes we’ve ever had.
Now that we’ve introduced our choice vendors, lets get into our vision. When shoot day arrived the weather provided us with many ups and downs. Wind, rain and sunny breaks added a variety of feels and natural light. Gold, geometric shapes, beautiful script and natural earth elements grounded our vision.
Hope you enjoy what we have come up with. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
