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!

From Tufts & Toile Vintage Rentals & Design… For me, there is nothing more peaceful than to stare at an endless sea of waves as the sun is about to set. On the day of shooting we were given this ideal lighting near dusk that truly brought out the blend of soft, airy delicate details that defined this ethereal shoot. Our model had beautiful movement throughout, walking barefoot along the beach. She adorned two looks, one boudoir and one bridal, both looks complimented by a breathtaking cathedral veil. An intimate sweetheart table sat right on the edge of the water. The waves tried relentlessly to push the organic runner closer to shore and left remnants of the lake on the legs of the furniture as they rolled backward. The organic floral arrangements brought in the perfect amount of soft colour, using blush, lavender and peach. But it’s the lavender that is ever present throughout, from the calligraphy ink and vintage stamps, to the fondant floral detail on the cake and the amethyst stone on the vintage ring. These stunning images were captured on film by Kurtz Orpia. I’m always thrilled to work with such inspiring photographers and his images get me every time. This was my first creative working with a film photographer, which brought forth so much excitement, and anticipation to see the final images. We are so spoiled with our instant digital playbacks. It gave me a new found appreciation for the art of film, and the uniqueness it brings to a creative shoot.

From White Event Studio…The inspiration for this shoot came from one of my favourite countries, Italy- specifically Tuscany. Villa Marco Polo is a venue located in Victoria BC and thanks to its European, al fresco look, bringing our vision to life was effortless. The yellow house created such a beautiful backdrop and the sunny weather together with the scenic gardens really helped us set the mood.
A mix of dusty blue silk and organic linen were perfectly paired up with lush florals, handmade charger plates and copper elements to create a romantic and soft tablescape. One of my favourite inspiration details for this shoot was a 4-tiered ‘cheese cake,’ a delicious option for those who prefer savoury over sweet. For our ceremony dress, we opted for Alexandra Grecco’s delicate “Vivienne” gown; perfect piece for a spring celebration with its beautiful hand embroidered silk petals and spectacular movement. Our reception dress was the super chic yet classy Macabeau high waisted lace skirt with the gorgeous Macdowell top by Houghton.
When designing an event, there is nothing more important to me than being able to take my client’s inspiration and transport the guests through my design; especially when I feel so connected to the main inspiration (Italy) ideas flow naturally!
