Magic in Motion

Photo Oct 22, 1 06 33 PMWhen it’s this close to Halloween, and the full on lush of fall has spread into the city, there is an air of change that is as exciting as it is scary. Teaming up with self proclaimed witchy woman, photographer, Katie Essick in St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill neighborhood we captured some magic one bright autumn morning. It was a stunning outcome as Madeleine stomped around in the crisp air with hints of warmth from the fleeting sun. Too cool for winter, too hot for summer. Only fall can feel this way.

I do – You do.

The beginning of the year always has us prepping for wedding season. As we dug out our cream of the crop rhinestone pieces and all the white, off-white, cream and blush fabrics, inspiration started to flow. L’avenir’s Minneapolis headquarters has honed in on some beautiful statement earrings, while Seattle’s main focus has been on feathery fascinators and intricate beading.



While we have our strengths in different arenas, we use team work and communicate daily to allow for creativity to harness itself. If the juices are flowing over there on jewelry, hand sewing might be what’s working here. Apart, we are able to collaborate in a new and exciting way, our creativity being fueled with differing perspectives. You can watch the process unfold through our Instagram account and find these pieces in person exclusively at Via’s Vintage.
