I set out to inspire Birch & Bunny brides and grooms who are dreaming up their own wedding themes. I wanted this inspiration shoot to be rich and elegant, but to marry that sophistication with the natural beauty of the outdoors, hence a woodland glam theme. To accomplish this, I choose a colour pallet of deep Marsala, bold berry hues, and accents of gold and bling.When Grace Kerr of Photographs by Grace came on board, I was thrilled by her enthusiasm for the concept! We had such a mild winter, but it was so windy that day (a severe wind warning was issued) that we almost blew away!Beautiful flower garland, bouquet and floral crown were created by Occasional Bloom, using rich deep colours and lush florals juxtaposed with curly willow branches for texture.Cake artist Handmade Cake Company crafted a semi-naked red velvet cake using all natural and preservative free ingredients. It was garnished with persimmons, fresh berries, pomegranate seeds, as well as a sumptuous pavlova, and raspberry cream filled meringues.
Our model’s hair and makeup were done by MaddPretty Makeover Studio, and a fur stole from Calgary Bridal Capes kept her warm.Alyssa of Plush Invitations designed and then dip dyed the stationery in water colours of luscious berry hues.
A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of the vendors who contributed to make this photo shoot amazing!
