When I moved to Vancouver I started two brands. Olivia, which probably you already know and The-Favourite. The latter was more casual and fun and I used to sell it under consignment in a bunch of stores across the city. It was mostly non bridal but sometimes I would make some wedding goodies. One of the stores I used to sell The Favourite was Fine Finds, a neat spot in Yaletown that has become the go-to place for gifts, clothing and just nice unique stuff. So through them Jaclyn had her custom bridal headband made. Custom made orders are to me the ultimate gesture of trust. You are paying upfront to some one you don’t really know, for something you haven’t seen. I enjoy this trust and I love the element of surprise. Cause even the idea is basically done in my head, it’s always intriguing to find out if I’m going to make it right or it will end up like an old pressed bitten cotton candy and everyone will finally call my bluff.
After a year I decided to kill The Favourite and just stick to Olivia. Consignment is not for me and I think I was too ambitious and naive to think I was going to be able to properly manage two new brands in a place where I just moved and didn’t know anyone. But who knows… maybe in the future we might bring The Favourite back.
Anyways…. This are some of Jaclyn’s wedding pictures! The photography was done by Sarah and Graeme from The Nickersons, a husband & wife photography team from Vancouver that have become one of my favourites. Visit their blog to see why. They have such great taste! The wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty so pay them a visit if you want to see more shots from this awesome summer wedding.
