A note from the photographer and event designers -Whitney, Erica and Rosemary:
"Our fairytale begins on a rustic farm where Cinderella feeds and cares for her farm animals. Cinderella lived a very unglamorous life, with her main quarters in a dilapidated dark barn. One day, Cinderella receives an invitation to The Royal Ball. She sews her own dress from the left over scraps she is able to find, and steals away on her beloved Clydesdale, Bella.
On her way she experiences a magical transformation. Before her eyes, appears a botanical horse drawn carriage, and her attire is suddenly adorned with blooms from her bodice down to her shoes.
At the ball she enjoys dinner and dancing with Prince Charming in the private setting of his Royal Estate Gardens. They fall in love. Our story ends when the clock strikes midnight and upon her departure she leaves behind her botanical slipper.
A vintage carriage pulled by Bella, the beautiful Belgian Clydesdale, initially inspired our Cinderella shoot. Being in the Pacific Northwest we put a botanical spin on the classic Cinderella Fairytale. Our story exudes a feeling of old world grace with endless greens and over-the-top botanical embellishments.
In our design concept we stayed true to the classic Cinderella periwinkle blue while adding strong accents of green to show the lush beauty so prevalent in the Pacific Northwest. We were inspired by the contrasting settings of the Farm and the Estate Gardens of the historic Lewis and Clark College. These two settings symbolize the dramatic transformation Cinderella experiences in her story."
