M & W - 1920s themed Carriage House Inn Calgary Wedding

M & W - 1920s themed Carriage House Inn Calgary Wedding

In Calgary, we see a lot of rustic styled weddings. While these are lovely, I always get excited when I meet a couple with a different plan! Melanie and Wilson planned an elegant 1920s themed wedding reception at the Carriage House Inn. They focused on lots of fun details that wove their theme together. Melanie and Wilson started their wedding day with a beautiful outdoor garden ceremony at the Calgary Zoo. One of my favourite perks of having part or all of your wedding at the zoo is that you have access to all the beautiful spots on the island for photos! Surprisingly, the dinosaur area has some of the best hidden spots... as long as you can hold off the busy Saturday afternoon crowds!

Katrina & Steven - Garden wedding English Inn on Vancouver Island

I'm very excited to share Katrina & Steven's beautiful Outdoor Garden Wedding at the English Inn on Vancouver Island. Katrina and Steven were married on the May long weekend in beautiful Victoria, BC. I met Katrina at a bridal show more than a year before their wedding. As she described the intimate garden party they were planning on the island, I knew it was going to be an amazing weekend. Katrina described the incredible venue: "When you enter the grounds, you don't even feel like you are in Victoria anymore. You don't even care where you are, you just don't want to leave."

Amy & John - Spring Garden Wedding

Amy & John - Spring Garden Wedding

Amy and John had their heart set on a beautiful Spring Garden Wedding. They picked their wedding day based on when the Lougheed House was available because they had their heart set on ceremony in the formal gardens. Now as anyone who has lived in Calgary for a while knows, June is about the only time of year that we get rain. The day before Amy and John's wedding it was terrible, grey and rainy all day long, so plans were made to move the ceremony inside, much to the bride and groom's disappointment. But on Saturday morning, the clouds cleared and and a we had the most beautiful, sunny day in June.
