To incorporate their Disney Land proposal into their big day wasn’t hard, first they used Disney trivia to determine the order at dinner.  Then instead of clinking glasses guests were to recite a Disney quote to get the newlyweds to smooch.

This Sweets Table featured desserts as far as the eye could see- everything from macarons and croquembouche, to sandwich cookies, donuts, brownies, blondies, and various mini pies and tartlets!

One small guest was especially impressed by the sweets table!  I overheard a little girl ask her daddy if she could go get dessert, her eyes must have been bigger than her stomach because she returned with a half full serving platter!  After we stifled a giggle, her dad told the little girl that she had to offer the sweets around.  Boy was she ever disappointed, but she did share.  Such a sweetheart.

Couple's First Dance
Little did Linsey + Mitch know, that their friends had staged a Flash-mob group dance!

Afterwards, I took the gorgeous flowers to YYC Petal Project.  They took our donated centrepieces, bouquets and garlands and split them into several smaller bouquets which they distributed to a Senior’s Care Centre.  As a Nurse (and a total sweetheart) Linsey was so thrilled by this suggestion.

What an amazing day with an incredible couple!  I am so honored that you chose me to be a part of your special day.

Amy + Paul’s Sailing Club Wedding

arch flowers
Overlooking the water on a gorgeous day in August,  Amy + Paul wed among loved ones.

The intimate event blended urban style with bohemian charm, and a minimal aesthetic set the tone for their special day.  Decor plays an important role in any event, but that is especially true when your Bride is an Interior Designer!

The reception was brought to life with lush florals and leafy greenery
beautiful, from their gem embellished place cards to their first dance at twilight below the strings of bulb lights.  We added to the timeline a special time for Amy + Paul to sneak off for a sunset photo session.

Vanessa + PJ’s Intimate Banff Vow Renewal

In an intimate twilight ceremony in the heart of Banff National Park, Vanessa and PJ renewed their vows to one another and expressed their ongoing love for one another after over a decade of marriage. They did so in the presence of their two beautiful children, their parents and a few close friends.
Intimate CeremonyBanff Wedding
Vanessa and PJ returned from their honeymoon to discover that sadly their wedding photographer had shut down and left town with the film.  Their lone framed photo of their wedding day was snapped by a friend, but now they have made some new memories and the lovely Jennie Guenard has captured these beautiful images for them.

The inspiration behind everything from Vanessa’s stunning Elizabeth Dye gown to the watercolour vow booklets and even their cake was inspired by the pretty colours in their mountain backdrop and the way it looked like a watercolour painting at twilight.  I hope you all love these photos as much as we do!
Banff Wedding
Tamara of Bake My Day created this gorgeous cake and yes, she made that beautiful flower and it’s edible!

Bohemian Wedding

Isn’t Vanessa breathtaking?  (and how about that gown?!)  Vanessa wore the Elizabeth Dye Halo Gown in glacier and ivory.

What an incredible honor it was to be a part of your special day Vanessa and PJ.  We’re so happy that you now have some photographs to hang on your walls.  Yours is a love for the ages!

Holly + Brett’s Wedding at The Commons

birch-and-bunny-weddings-and-events-2Holly + Brett are a truly unique couple, so their wedding had to stand out!  Laid back, sentimental, and so much fun, their wedding incorporated their personalities into every detail.  Find out what they swapped out instead of the traditional wedding cake, bouquet or guestbook!
Holly and Brett Wedding Bride and GroomInstead 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”
Industrial Chic Wedding

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.
