Having completed our most recent stylized shoot at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia has been a long time coming. For those looking for a classic ballroom Vancouver wedding venue, look no further. To make this vision happen required a talented team: Sarah Lam Beauty, Elle Weddings, and Cinematic Wedding Studio. Rosewood Hotel Georgia wedding photos are some of my favourite wedding photos. The options are endless when capturing photos here with amazing natural light, and the ability to be creative with the architect and using dramatic light.
Since it’s beginnings in the 1920s, the hotel has been filled with historic celebrities with the likes of Elvis Presley, Katharine Hepburn, Frank Sinatra. In addition, the interior design and craftsmanship are not to be missed. Classic wall decor, marble flooring, and beautifully wall installations, with furnishings from the original hotel in 1920 give this hotel character. Because of its elegant and luxurious look, our team wanted to pay montage to the interior design of the hotel and its history focusing on the classic and luxurious look.
This was my first time planning a stylized shoot, as a result, I had to bring the best of the best with me. This literally would not have been possible without the helping hand of Leslie and Sarah who did a lot of the heavy lifting and coordinating with vendors. Their experience and eye for detail is impeccable and made this whole experience enjoyable for me. When Sarah first contacted me in January, I was worried if the timing would work out. In all honesty, I was even nervous the night before not knowing how everything was going to come together.
Old World Meets Modern Romance in Vancouver’s Historic Wedding Venue
Our morning began right at 8 am, where Sarah prepped our models Kate and Manny. Within that two-hour time frame, our decor, florist, and cake started to trickle in transforming the Spanish Ballroom.
Starting off in the classic 1927 cocktail lounge of the hotel, I wanted to use this area to bring out the classic feel. Manny, wearing a tuxedo from Black and Lee, rocked out the look. Following our photos in the lounge, our next set of photos brought us to the infamous marble staircase. Highlighting the bride, while using the staircase was a bit tricky with the lighting being dim. However, using my own lighting I was able to accentuate Kate’s dress by Everything but the Groom, designed by Mori Lee.
The Tudor Ballroom often used as the bridal room is absolutely perfect with its high windows! Using this room, we did our photos here for the cake and invitations. The white and gold 4 tier cake was designed by Adorable Dolce. The intricate details of floral patterns and fondant complimented the room. Furthermore, adding to the cake was the tall mutated roses from Vivio flowers. Our exquisite handcrafted invitations and cards were designed by Eunice from Fiddle and Ink. You’ll notice the elegant writing and details Eunice puts into the invitations!

To conclude our shoot we headed into the transformed Spanish Ballroom. Rosewood Hotel Georgia is known for its glamour and luxury. With lush, textured patterns, hanging glass baubles, muted roses, handwritten menus, we took the time to get some glamour style shots.
