Neutrals and soft blue and grey hues set the perfect tone for this romantic garden inspiration shoot. We wanted to bring those wishful outdoor wedding feelings of our early spring brides to life. And so, it had to be all about the florals. Janie with Flowers by Janie, created the most amazing spring arrangements that complemented our colour palette better than we could have imagined. The gold accents and blue gauze table runner from Shasta Bell Calligraphy lend such a classic, airy and timeless feel. We kept our models hair and makeup fluent to her own natural beauty and the simple elegance of her gown. With the playful balance of romance and elegance we love how this shoot came to life!

I absolutely loved creating this seating chart for a Inspiration Shoot with Parrish House Photos. How dreamy is it as an entrance to one of Calgary's most beautiful restaurants, Royale Brasserie. I have to admit, I might even use the word "obsessed" to describe this seating chart in this venue. The ornate details compliment so many elements of Royale Brasserie. In love! Heres to beautiful details, timeless calligraphy, gold wax seals, and wild greenery!
First things first - any drink served in a coupe is already a classy success. Garnish it with a fresh sprig of rosemary and a few cranberries - heaven. Shouldn't all cocktails be served in coupes?! This Cranberry Ginger Fizz is sure to be a hit at your holiday party. It's also just the right touch for an intimate night in with your love. Perfectly tart and not too sweet. There is a hint of savoury from the rosemary garnish and it's divine. Ginger ale tops it off adding a little sweetness and fizz.
2 oz vodka / 2 oz white cranberry juice / .5 oz simple syrup

How gorgeous is this inspiration board created for one of our 2017 brides! Translating the vision and inspiration for the day into an inspo board [first thing] is one of my most favourite parts of the planing process! I think it is such a crucial part of the design process for every wedding! Inspiration Boards are now part of our Month-Of Services!
We were so fortunate to be apart of Boutique Wedding Market this past weekend! Nothing beats chatting with Brides (and a few Grooms too!) and hanging out with some of Calgary's most wonderful industry friends! See you again in the Spring!
August ninth you say? Yes, that makes sense. Right about this time, excitement begins to ensue for my favourite season of the year. In my mind, despite the weather, summer is over. Or at least, I'm over it. Dare I say I am not a summer person at all?! No I don't think so. I do appreciate summer and am always ready and even anticipate it when May rolls around. But! It must be said. Fall truly has my heart. Fall colours, smells, sweaters and boots; The Holidays just around the corner. And lastly, but most importantly, Fall weddings. Here is just a snippet of what is inspiring me this season.
Now, back to your iced coffees, bathing suits and flip flops. I will see the rest of you over here in a few weeks!!!
