Canadian Rocky Mountain Pastel Wedding

This panoramic mountain wedding captured by Christine Pienaar Photography is pure pastel perfection. It’s impossible to pick a favorite moment. From the Mori Lee donning Bride’s ‘First Look’ with the couple’s daughter, to those sweet as can be blooms by Canterbury Flowers, every single image in the gallery could be straight out of a fairytale and the video by Jordan Craig Weddings below proves it!

From Christine Pienaar PhotographyI am so excited to share Kelli & Dylan’s beautiful Panoramic Mountain wedding. Not only was the scenery at this wedding breathtaking, but the first look between the bride and her young daughter was one of the sweetest moments I’ve ever captured.

From the Bride… With only two years to plan the wedding, I didn’t spare anytime. The Pinterest board “Ireland Wedding 2014” was immediately created and the ideas started flowing. Being in University, working, and having a brand new baby didn’t leave much time for wedding planning, but every free moment I felt inspired I would plan.

I had always envisioned a quiet and quaint mountain wedding. Partially because Dylan and I spent any chance we could in the mountains. With this in mind, we made sure to incorporate colors that were both natural and elegant. We fell in love with mint green, coral and splashes of gold, which inspired the rest of our wedding.

After finding a beautiful mermaid style dress in Vancouver with my best friend, I decided it might be a bit easier to purchase the dress in Calgary for alterations and fittings. I was so eager to purchase the dress that I made appointments in Calgary immediately. Unfortunately, the owner of first store I visited was so mean to me I left the boutique crying. Dylan was so sweet and did some researching on his own to find another store that carried this particular dress. I arrived at Embrace Bridal in Airdrie a few weeks later and the ladies were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I can’t even begin to explain how friendly and personable the girls were, I remember thinking I should ask them to go for drinks after the fitting! They didn’t have the exact dress but made me try on a similar one for fun and I fell in love! It was a blessing in disguise.

The days leading up to the wedding were beyond exciting and at times, very stressful. I decided I wanted to DIY a lot of the decor. Everything from the centerpiece, wedding advice, table numbers, and lemonade stand were small pieces of the wedding I personalized. I also rummaged through tons of garage sales, estate sales, thrift shops and family barn yards to find old furniture, picture frames, vases, crates, and anything I thought would be a good fit for our mountain meets shabby chic wedding. I designed the wedding madlibs cards with a mint green watercolor brush using Photoshop and also used the same design for our seating chart which I hung using twine and clothes pins on old windows borrowed from a 100 year-old farmhouse. For our favors, we used small mason jars filled with a mixture of our favorite candy. My amazing Mother made over 50 bottles our favorite wine, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc and our friends mom, made a yummy chocolate and peanut butter cake topped off with our sparkly gold cake topper from Etsy.
I can’t thank my friends, family and hubby enough for the many wine and craft nights!

With the big day just weeks away and our venue not built, Dylan and I were a tad nervous we would have to move our location which would not be easy in a small little ski village like Panorama. Our friend who owns the course told us not to fret. For me being the planner I am, it was quite stressful not being able to see the reception room beforehand. Looking back, it was surreal – the high ceilings, stone fireplace, big windows, wrap-around patio, and rustic wooden beams completed the “quaint mountain” setting. While the bridesmaids and I got ready in our cute little floral robes, one of my girls, a Calgary-based food blogger, served up an amazing breakfast complete with yogurt parfaits, apple-spiced pancakes, mini frittatas, fruit kabobs, mini donuts served in coffee and fresh juices. Once we had finished breakfast and I got into my dress, my photographer suggested I do a “first look” with our daughter, Jovi. This was such an emotional and memorable part of the day for me. I hid on the patio while Jovi, who was two years old at the time, in her fluffy tutu dress slowly walked outside. Unsure of where all the girls were leading her, she peeked around the corner and immediately smiled and ran into my arms and hugged me like I hadn’t seen her in days! I balled like a baby. Our wedding was more amazing than I could have ever imagined. To share this special day with our daughter was perfect…words can’t even begin to describe the joy, the happiness and the tears – I’m so in love!

Modern Yellow Toronto Wedding

Full of whimsical touches from start to finish (balloons and donuts, lemons and limes), this was one fun wedding. When a couple infuses their own spirit into every bit of their celebration like this one, it reminds me why I love weddings so much. A Brit & A Blonde captured every adorable moment and a smile will be plastered across my face for the rest of today as I squeeze every bit of joy out of this gallery.

From A Brit & A BlondeKatherine and Andrew are a ton of fun. They met in University while studying law out East. They got married in beautiful downtown Toronto. Their ceremony was held at Trinity College Chapel at the University of Toronto, followed by cocktails and reception at The Royal Conservatory of Music. A most rad venue. The bride played many piano recitals there as a child. And the couple are both big fans of music.

The decor was modern, with hints of vintage and whimsical. Adore all those pops of yellow. Lemons played a big role in the decor – Kat & Andrew enlisted the help of their wedding party to scour Toronto for as many lemons as they could muster. They joked during the speeches that there are literally no lemons left in the city that weekend. Guests sat at long banquet tables, encouraging conversation and mingling while they feasted on dinner. Lisa from Sweet Woodruff did a great job marrying all the decor elements with an eclectic mix of floral arrangements made of ranunculus, anemones and dahlias, dispersed among mercury candles, bell jars and accents of lemons. Wine crates and even more lemons decorated the reception tables, while guests browsed a display of framed old family photos nearby. Guests were asked to sign the back of postcards – that were designed by the couple. Palettera created beautiful custom name cards and the lovely invitations. Rebecca Chan and her team helped bring all the vision and details that the couple had been working on to life. The reception set up was picture perfect.

The amount of DIY was astounding! With the help of friends and family – these guys got super crafty and it looked fab. The groom’s parents helped create the marquee lights. Which looked gorgeous all lit up during the reception. Guests found their seats by the super creative piano-key inspired escort card display hung on an old window frame created by Palettera. We loved this – such a nice touch since it the reception took place at the Royal Conservatory of Music.The rustic table numbers were constructed by the groom’s family. The Mr. & Mrs signs, the chalk board signage, the table decor – all done with love and smiles from the couple and their friends and family.

From The Bride…I had always dreamed of an outdoor setting for our wedding, and take advantage of the gorgeous Vancouver Summers. We were lucky enough to find a venue that allowed an outdoor ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour on the terrace, and a full dinner on the terrace.

Coral, blush, and white, flowers paired wonderfully with the gold accents and coral bridesmaid dresses. The overall feel was romantic and had a vintage touch. As the evening light dimmed the outdoor dinner setting under the stringed cafe lights was gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. Both Brian I wanted to be sure all our guests had an amazing night. The overall setting and our band did not disappoint!

Thank you to everyone who made our date what it was! For all our friends and family who supported us along the way, to all of our out of town guests from across the world we so enjoyed seeing, and to Brian’s parents and grandma for their contributions and support. Thank you to my parents who were so generous in hosting the dinner, bar, attire and décor, you helped make the night perfect! Also to all the talented vendors that made everything pull together and made my vision come to life.

Waterton Lakes National Park Anniversary Session

Anniversary sessions never fail to leave me super sappy and sentimental. No props needed, there is just something so wonderful about people coming together years after the big shebang to say – “after all these years, you’re still it.” So I couldn’t be more grateful that Marcie Meredith Photography shared her beautiful images of this couples’ beautiful story with us, and you can see why here.


From Marcie Meredith PhotographyDuring their 10 years of marriage, this couple has been through a lot. It was a sweet way to celebrate their upcoming anniversary by photographing their love in such a beautiful setting.

From The Couple…Our marriage is precious to us, and our time together as a family even more so. Two full military deployments to combat zone, and many months of away trainings to various locations, have made us forge a bond between us that cannot be broken by time or distance. Our three sons have shown us our best and worst traits, and they continue to help us grow as their own unique personalities allow our family to see and experience different perspectives. Much has happened since our wedding 10 years ago: between us three college degrees, three major open-heart surgeries for our second child, and half a dozen moves across the county. We would not change it–our marriage is what it is because of the things we have gone through together. We look forward to seeing how the next 10 years will strengthen it even more.

From Epic EventsNaomi and Gavin chose to have a laid-back, super chic, garden party to celebrate their love! Naomi spend countless hours curating the perfect touches and details for their wedding. From Etsy to BHDLN, no details forgotten. They started their day with 200 guests joining them for a lunch time ceremony and reception at London Heritage Farms. Guests were welcomed by a custom watercolor guest book painting that was created by friends of the bride. Guests were encouraged to write their names on the colorful bunting.

After a personalized ceremony conducted by a long-time friend of the family, Pastor Mark Johnson, guests were treated to games and lunch in the gardens of the farm. Food trucks hold a special place in Naomi and Gavin’s heart. While they were dating, they were working a few buildings apart in downtown Vancouver. They would regularly meet for lunch and pick a food truck to visit and find some steps to sit on to eat. It was an obvious choice when selecting a lunch time caterer to pick for their favorite food trucks and serve their favorite dishes to their guests. So after picking up their fresh, local food, guests sat on picnic blankets in the shade or at picnic tables to enjoy!

In the evening, Naomi and Gavin had a more intimate cocktail dinner for their immediate friends and family at Gavin’s parents beautiful private residence. Under patio lighting, guests were treated to a fully catered reception. Lanterns lit the way around the garden and they had provided a beautiful (and delicious!) dessert buffet with cozy places to sit and enjoy the food and music.

As this gorgeous Bride put it, “what’s more beautiful than two people in love?” I can’t think of much. See even more here.

From The Bride…I can now understand why people say your wedding is one of the best days of your life. What is more beautiful than 2 people in love? Kevin and I met in high school at the young ages of 15 and 17 years old. I have to say I feel so lucky to have been able to grow and experience life with him from such a young age. Seeing Kev at the end of the aisle and being surrounded by the most important people in our lives could not have made my heart more happy. The day was perfect from start to finish and we truly would not have changed anything.

Our wedding vision was vintage-glam. I have always had a love for all things vintage and find things like this intriguing. Kev and I started the hunt for the perfect antique items as soon as we got engaged. We picked out the typewriter, old books, watering can, dresser etc. to make our vision come to life while still adding in sparkly and glittery touches whenever we could! (There is never enough sparkle!). Our ceremony was held at an old cathedral style church with a stunning red carpet aisle and the reception took place at an ultra modern venue in Assiniboine Park with glass windows from the floor to the ceiling. My dress was purchased at Kleinfeld and designed by the amazing Pnina Tornai. Lucky me, it was her trunk show that weekend so I actually got fitted and measured by the designer herself! (such a cool experience!). Everything fell into place and Kev and I truly had the wedding of our dreams!
