Here’s how I knew I was going to LOVE this wedding.  Not only did the gorgeous couple (oh, are they ever) DIY most of the sweet details themselves, but they had their First Look in a garden that they frequently take walks in AND held their ceremony + reception at a gorgeous little Italian restaurant downtown (the beautiful Bonterra Trattoria Restaurant).  Are they amazing or what?!?  Add to all of that pretty a fairytale Lazaro gown and an entire gallery of gorgeous captured by Katch Studios and I think we found the meaning of “adorability.”  See so much more in the full gallery.

From Katch Studios… This wedding took place in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in the summer. The bride was extremely crafty and almost all of her details were DIY or were handmade items she bought from Etsy. Their theme was “vintage, rustic & romantic” which was reflected in the soft colors, the simple and sweet florals, her romantic lace and tulle gown, and lots of wood and lace details throughout.

What makes this wedding unique is that the couple did a “First Look” at a little overgrown garden/fountain that they often take walks through as a couple. Also, their beautiful wedding was held at an intimate Italian restaurant in Calgary’s downtown. The ceremony took place in the lovely outdoor courtyard and the reception took place inside the warm, candle-lit restaurant. My favorite detail inside was that they displayed large framed pictures on the walls of themselves from their engagement session– such a nice, personal touch.
