Holly + Brett are a truly unique couple, so their wedding had to stand out!  Find out what they swapped out instead of the traditional wedding cake, bouquet or guestbook!

Instead of a traditional bouquet, Holly opted for handmade fabric flowers on her couture dress and to drape everything in flowers and greenery from top to bottom.  Check out this pretty hanging greenery and ceremony vignette where Holly + Brett said their “I Do’s”

Fun details like this pair of vintage typewriters as a guestbook alternative, made Holly + Brett’s wedding so unique.  Holly collected these items and created the banners for the reception decor herself.

Holly carefully selected vintage pieces to create a warm and inviting lounge area.

Brett worked on his 1960 Chevy Bel Air so that he could drive his Bride Holly away in it after the ceremony.  He and several of the couples’ friends showcased their classic cars between the ceremony and reception.

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Holly + Brett opted for a vintage popsicle cart from Family Freezed. The popsicle sticks were even personalized!

Rose Quartz & Navy Winter Wedding – Inspiration

I was so thrilled when Birch & Bunny Weddings and Event Rentals was approached to style this wedding inspiration shoot by Nicole.Field Photography.  She really allowed us to have fun with the theme and style!

Sara + Steve are just so in love, you can see it in how they interact and how they look at one another.

The two lovebirds had met through a mutual friend a few years prior to dating.  After meeting for coffee one day though, Sara and Steve really felt a connection.  Not wanting the coffee date to end, the two talked for hours and hours.  It was obvious that sparks were flying and soon began spending more and more time together and fell madly in love!

Their Proposal

So utterly romantic! This past summer, in Venice, Italy – one of the most romantic cities on the planet… surrounded by iconic canals and beautiful architecture, this is where Steve declared his love and popped the question to Sara. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While planning the colour pallet, I felt inspired by Rose Quartz, one of the two Pantone Colours of the Year for 2016.  I chose Navy to balance out the soft femininity of the Rose Quartz/ Blush.

Sara took our breath away in this stunning gown from Cameo & Cufflinks.  She kept warm in a fur wrap from Calgary Bridal Capes.
