In the 1930s and again in the 1950s, a combined total of 800 cherry blossom trees were gifted to the city of Vancouver from two Japanese mayors. This was done as a token of good friendship between 2 nations and as a way of honouring the Japanese Canadians who served in WWI. Those trees now line many of Vancouver’s streets, and they flourish every Spring and add a newfound colour to what some might call a gloomy city in the winter. The cherry blossoms are loved by locals and tourists alike, so when we received these beautiful styled shoot photos from a team all the way in Kansas City, Missouri, we couldn’t help but feel a sense of familiarity.
Chanel wore our Geneva dress for this Japanese inspired vow renewal session. Perhaps we're biased, but its breezy chiffon ruffles and lightweight lace are a perfect match for the setting here: a light-soaked room, Pinterest-worthy tablescape, and an adorable hubby. As always, we’re honoured to be included in moments like these.
