Elegant + Ethereal Bollywood Wedding Inspiration

Fun fact: We’re labeling this gallery as the ideal scroll session, perfect for the every girl. The lady who loves lush blooms layered with soft hues paired with texture. An elegant inspiration from Justine Milton that you’re going to want to bookmark ASAP. Because any day graced with Amy Sanderson and Birds & Honey magic is one you’ll want to revisit time and time again. Get started and see it all in THE VAULT!

From Mana of Birds & HoneyWe hoped to create a minimalist shoot that embodied a modern, effortless South Asian bride. A little bit of wind and a breathtaking bride were all the elements we needed as inspiration for this Bollywood inspired editorial. Most south Asian brides are accustomed to bold and brighter tones of deep red and pink tones when planning their weddings, but we wanted to showcase a softer, more muted touch for the modern bride. I find so much beauty in simplicity and showcasing softer, neutral palettes. There is still an element of the bolder homage to the beautiful culture of the bride with her stunning jeweled Lazaro gown while the florals balance everything out. The beauty is truly in the movement of the bride as she is walking towards a new adventure in her life and how the wind delicately blows her saree, her hair and the stunning silk and willow ribbon in her bouquet.

Cozy Winter Wedding at Lake Louise

I’m not going to lie, after shivering my way through college just north of Chicago, the only way I like snow is when I can drive to it—and then away from it. But, I’ll admit that snow makes for stunning wedding photos, especially when they’re taken by Matt + Lena Photography. And with a rustic setting and seasonal florals, this wedding is the definition of a winter wonderland! See it all in THE VAULT!

From Matt + Lena PhotographyLes and Mel met while working at sea, on a cruise ship about 6 years ago. They were both dancers at the time, traveling the world and enjoying the adventure! They have since moved to Edmonton Canada to start their life together and a wedding was one of the top things on their list!

When these two asked us to photograph their wedding we were super excited! They are awesome people with amazing travel stories and a shared wanderlust to explore the world. Their wedding sounded amazing filled with loads of DIY projects, and their venue was a cozy lodge nestled in the Rocky Mountains at Lake Louise. They tied the knot on January 31st 2015.

The day was amazing, just the right combination of sunshine peaking though and a soft falling of snow. The backdrop was the vast snowy mountains and evergreen trees. For the portraits we took a short ride to a lookout point to capture all the magical scenery :)

From The Groom… Mel, having 3 brother, talked them into being her Brides Men. Her Man of Honour was her best friend Jeff, who did an amazing job making sure the day went smoothly. We knew we wanted to put a lot of ourselves into the wedding and decided to pour lots of effort and time into our ideas.

Luckily I’m pretty good at photoshop so all of our invitations and seating placements were home-made. The only real trick was having to make the envelopes too (but after making a life sized Delorean out of cardboard and tin foil for a cruise ship “Back to the future” themed party, it was an easy task :) )

Our venue was pretty incredible so we only had to accent it. We just chopped down and cut some birch trees into manageable sizes and then collected mason jars, candles and evergreen branches to assemble our table centerpieces.

The cake. At one time I was a chef, when Mel and I lived in Italy and played house for a year. And so I had a pretty good understanding of what it takes to make a cake. I made our cake as well as the topper.

I bought Mel’s rings at people’s jewelers. My ring was made from an early 1900’s penny. We had it nickel plated and it’s perfect.

The guestbook was pretty awesome, a handmade quilt with leaf shaped pieces of fabric to be signed and later stitched into the quilt.

Our DJ and friend, Lucky, kicked the celebrations off! Everyone had an amazing time and I owe him big!

The party carried on well in to the night and eventually spilled outside. The sky was packed with stars above the lake, it was the perfect end to the night.

Teal + Gold Cochrane Wedding

These two? They’ve got the kind of love that you could bottle up and watch it glow for eternity. High school sweethearts who built a friendship and a love for ten years before they said their I do’s, it’s no wonder I can feel my heart swell with every glance at Justine Milton‘s imagery of their Big Day. Thankfully, I can get a dose of that goodness any time I want, right here in THE VAULT.

From the Bride…Mike and I are started dating in grade 10 and after ten wonderful years we got married at a golf course with a beautiful view of the mountains. We spend so much of our time outdoors enjoying the lakes, forests and mountains in Alberta and around the world. So when it came to planning our wedding the only thing for certain was we wanted to keep it relaxed, simple but beautiful and portray our love of the outdoors. My favourite part of the day was exchanging of the vows. We decided to write our own and keep them a surprise until the day. I had to go first because I’m a huge crier and we all figured I would not make it through mine after listening to Mikes, and we were not wrong! I was so blown away by what he said and really could feel the love behind every word. It is something I will never forget and was the perfect way to start a marriage together.

From the Groom…While it is so hard to pick just one moment, I would have to say the speeches were a definitely one of my favourites. Everyone had such amazing things to say, they were funny, they brought up fond memories, and we could really feel the love. We are so lucky to be surrounded by such amazing family and friends and we were just excited to share this with everyone. While we did not have great weather, not even the rain could put a damper on our wedding. It was exactly what we had envisioned and it was the perfect day to celebrate with all our loved ones.
