Retro, Rat Pack style meets sleek and modern in this smokin’ swanky wedding editorial featuring our Astrid & Mercedes Spark gown! Set in The Watch That End the Night, the kind of establishment that serves up fine mixed drinks, food, and conversation, it was inspired by Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Photographer Chantal Routhier put it this way:
“Currently, in our fair city, we are experiencing a business revival with many new businesses opened in the last two years. Since Dartmouth is only across the bridge from Halifax, many references have been made calling it the new Brooklyn of Canada.
Since most of us both live and work in Dartmouth, it only made sense to have the direction and inspiration of this shoot be the backdrop of our lives and a natural extension of our home. The direction was high-end modern with a retro twist. You can see the charming elegance of New York style paired with the pops of whimsy The Watch That Ends the Night bar provides. KokoMod was the visionary and stylist for the shoot, threading all the elements into one cohesive storyboard. Her flower choices brought the whole shoot together.”
Even if you don’t live in Halifax, the cool of this shoot would slip right into your fave local spot—it’s perfect for a laid-back wedding with polish!
