I am so honored to be featured in the inaugural issue of Rocky Mountain Bride’s Canadian Magazine! What a truly magical location Emerald Lake Lodge is, and we had so much fun working there. All that and getting to bring together all of these amazing vendors?

I wanted to do something that I haven’t done in a while; design a really elegant, classic tablescape. I used opulent details and a colour palette inspired by natural elements.

To achieve that natural yet luxe look, I chose glass chargers, gold flatware, gold-rimmed glassware, scroll place cards, menus calligraphed on cloth napkins, clear phoenix chairs, and lush florals. Champagne gummy candy favor boxes were a fun way to top off my tablescape.

Champagne Toast

Because who doesn’t want a prosecco toast following their ceremony?! We’ll of course arrange for sparkling cider to include your non-drinking guests.

Wax Seal

For the place cards we chose calligraphy on a layer of vellum, with a wax seal of the north star on a compass. Hand torn paper was tied with a smokey blue raw silk ribbon.

Wedding Centerpiece

Raw edge bespoke cloth menus served also as cloth napkins. Elegance is in the details.

Gold flatware along with gold-rimmed glassware and plates take this tablescape to the next level of luxe. The finishing touch? Champagne gummy candy favors that would make any guest smile!

Wedding Charcuterie

Charcuterie and hors d’oeuvres were catered by Emerald Lake Lodge and were delish of course.

Meet the Couple

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.Bridal Bouquet with succuletsCarla of Carla Lily Flowers put together the gorgeous textural posy for our Bride-to-be turned model, Sara.
