Linsey + Mitch were surrounded by the scenic rocky mountains at their Silvertip Resort Wedding in Canmore, Alberta.  Knowing that his love was a major Disney fanatic, Mitch proposed to Linsey at Disney Land!

As guests arrived they were serenaded by Amante Duo.

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.

A hand-painted mountainscape two-tier wedding cake drew gasps as we brought guests in to the reception. Of course we didn’t get a chance to snap a photo of it later once more florals were added, once the ceremony concluded. It was even more beautiful once more florals were added.

This sweets table featured desserts as far as the eye could see; everything from macarons and profiteroles, to sandwich cookies, donuts, brownies, blondies, and various mini pies and tartlets!

One small guest was especially impressed by the sweets table!  I overheard the little girl ask her daddy if she could go get her dessert. He agreed, but her eyes must have been bigger than her stomach because she returned with a half full serving platter!  After we stifled our giggles, (after all, there was no shortage of sweets) her dad told the little girl that she had to offer the desserts around her table.  Boy was she ever disappointed, but she did share the platter.  Such a sweetheart.

One of Linsey + Mitch’s friends is a dance choreographer, so she taught their friends and family dance lessons. They rehearsed and staged a surprise Flash-mob group dance!

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

What an amazing day with an incredible couple!  We are so honored that you chose us to be a part of your special day.

In an intimate twilight ceremony in the heart of Banff National Park, Vanessa and PJ renewed their vows.  The two 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 Ceremony

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. After their Banff Vow Renewal ceremony, Vanessa and PJ have made some new memories. This time, 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 renewal 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!

Tamara of Bake My Day created this gorgeous mountain cutting cake. The mountains match Vanessa + PJ’s blue and grey colour scheme and watercolour theme. Yes, she made that beautiful flower too and it’s edible!

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 planning your special day Vanessa and PJ. Your Vow Renewal ceremony was so beautiful, and your family is lovely!  We’re so happy that you now have some photographs to hang on your walls.  Yours is a love for the ages!
