Being a Calgary wedding photographer means that I get to be surrounded by the mountains continually. I absolutely love shooting in the Rocky Mountains, not only is the scenery beautiful but it fills my heart with joy and peacefulness.
This amazing Lakeside Love wedding shoot was an absolute pleasure to collaborate on! It combines a serene beach wedding with the timelessness of a lakeside Rocky mountain-scape. Focusing on outdoor elements, pastel colours, smooth drapery and rich light – the overall design is fluid and natural. The interplay between soft styling and majestic wilderness make for a remarkable wedding scene.
Furnished by Orange Trunk Vintage Rentals with extra pieces from Special Event Rentals, Jacqueline Rae set the table with a custom blush chiffon runner, adding milk glass floral centerpieces, anchored with rock details. Place settings consisted of detailed ivory chargers, blush plates and circular menus. Three-dimensional cookie place cards were framed with gold flatware and grey accents. Gentle blush tulle accented the table runner, draping down to a rough beach, emphasizing the powerful contrast of this design.
Blush and Raven supplied an exquisite beaded Jenny Yoo Mia Dress with a crisscrossed sweetheart neckline draping subtly off the shoulder of our bride. The A-line silhouette elongated her figure and the sweep train created a compelling, ethereal feel perfect for a beachside wedding. Perla Mia, our custom jeweler contributed some one-of-a-kind pieces including a gorgeous freshwater pearl, 14k rose gold drop pearl earrings as well as a delicate bracelet that reminds us of the ocean.
Ed Williams Men’s Wear fashioned an outdoor elegant look, complete with a blush dress shirt, navy linen tie, captain’s jacket, and grey textured pants with a natural roll hem.
The four-tier cake sat atop a heritage white dresser, adorned with more chiffon and a champagne tower of vintage glassware along with blue stained glass mirror and florals in a crystal pitcher. A stunning weathered vintage rattan chair housed the bouquet and was placed beside a weathered farm table from Special Event Rentals, edged by French round, cane-back napoleon chairs.
The centerpiece featured textured stunning floral items from Fall for Florals, including the organic bouquet, groom’s boutonniere and the cake table arrangement with loose and varied floral on display. Sweet Art by Nicole created the four-tier masterpiece, along with the three-dimensional cookie place cards. Nicole skillfully handcrafts imaginative cakes and cookies using top-quality ingredients, resulting in brilliant, tasty pieces of art.
The award-winning company, Lovesky Design provided a romantic stationery suite, designed specifically for this dreamy lakeside shoot. Soft watercolors lend a dreamy feel. Specializing in luxury bridal styling, Something Borrowed Beauty blended a natural, yet bold eye makeup with a warm blush palate and tousled curls for our striking red-haired bride-to-be.
