There needs to be a national campaign all about the beauty of Alberta – and I nominate these pics by Emily Katharine to be the leading images. With a scene set by JoyFoley Weddings and florals from Fleurish Flower Shop, it’s a pure romantic escape. The Pretty Haus made sure our Bride was beaming and you can see every beautiful bit in our Vault right here!
From Stacey of JoyFoley Weddings… Romance, beauty, passion. A mountain elopement so full of emotion, love and sweetness. When I was first contacted by Emily and Thomas, of Emily Katharine Photography, to create an editorial for them during their visit to Canada, I knew that it needed to include the beautiful rocky mountains, a wonderful couple in love and some of Calgary’s finest wedding vendors. When I envision the perfect mountain elopement I envision Rob and Sarah. The sweetest couple, so content in their love, so passionate for each other, and so wonderful to be in the presence of.
Sarah was dressed in the beautiful Zephyr gown by Elizabeth Dye from The Bridal Boutique in Calgary and Rob was suited up by the gentlemen at Ed Williams Menswear. I went for a classic, romantic feel that would allow the beautiful backdrop to add the simple drama that we wanted. Jaime Gage from Fleurish Flower Shop helped to bring my floral visions to life with a soft, elegant and romantic floral scheme. The bouquet, accented with beautiful ribbons from Frou Frou Chic, was the perfect combination of simple and dramatic. The floral boat garland, floral crown and cake flowers were the epitome of accent piece perfection. Jill Mayer of Art & Alexander brought her a-game to our custom calligraphy vows. Written in a soft grey ink, to perfectly pair with our The Mrs. Box ring box, Jill created vows that would make even the biggest romantic melt. The beauty team was created with two of Canmore’s greatest talents. The Pretty Haus and Lilies and Lace Beauty Co. Worked together to create Sarah’s soft and romantic look. A neutral color scheme allowed us to accent Sarah’s gorgeous eyes and her perfect pout. Sarah’s hair was upswept and created the perfect amount of drama around her face.
Our editorial took place around the gorgeous Lake Minnewanka in Banff, Alberta. One of my favourite locations for many years, the lake provided the perfect background for two gorgeous people in love!
