This past summer we were inspired by a shallow lake in Jasper National Park and decided to make it the location for an edgy wedding shoot featuring an awesome black wedding dress and amazing floral jewellery. Edmonton wedding planner Julia Pringle from Once Upon Your Day put together a spectacular tablescape in the middle of the shallow lake with beautiful chairs, plates and linens from Special Event Rentals combined with stunning florals from faBLOOMosity to make this one of my favourite stylized shoots I’d done to date. You just can’t go wring with the stunning natural beauty in Jasper National Park and with the romantic table for two set in the middle of the lake, we sure garnered a lot attention from park visitors travelling by. This shoot wouldn’t have been complete without the amazing florals… let me gush about them for a moment! The floral jewellery was spectacular and so intricate… amazing! I loved the living ring! The centrepiece and the bouquet were just fabulous too. Krystal and Mike made great models and didn’t mind getting soaked and rolling around in the semi-chilly lake to get some great photos. Krystal’s hair and make-up by Erin Regis was beautiful and didn’t budget, even with all that splashing and rolling around in the water! So here’s some of my favourites from this awesome shoot! I can’t wait to go back to Jasper to photograph more weddings and portraits too, so if you’d like to photographed in Jasper, get in touch!
The winter tends to be a bit slow for Edmonton wedding photographers so that’s the time we get to have lots of fun and create inspiration shoots. Let’s rewind a few months to February for this wintery vintage-inspired tablescape designed by Edmonton Wedding Planner Julia Pringle from Once Upon Your Day. We had waited until February in hopes of having lots of snow… no such luck there! At least there as little bit of snow so things weren’t barren, but we were hoping for piles of the white stuff to complement this white and creme table set up with hints of red from the surrounding cherry trees. The fabulous rosette table linen and beaded chargers were from Elegant Touches, the chair covers and jewelled accents were from A Chair to Remember and the gorgeous cameo-inspired cakes were made by Style Cakes. The vintage-inspired brooch bouquet was by by the Wild Orchid Flower Shop. The retro chandelier was from my studio (originally purchased from Urban Barn). The menu card was from PinkPolka Design.
As an Edmonton wedding photographer, I get to see lots of great decor ideas at all of the weddings I photograph and it’s fun to help show off lots of new ides for wedding decor inspiration. I was pretty excited to shoot this gorgeous tablescape and sweet table design by Edmonton wedding planner Juli Cragg of A Modern Proposal Event Planning. The colour scheme is just WOW! with bold yellow, pretty aqua and modern grey. I love the paper-flower inspiration for the cake, cupcakes and backdrop. The overall design is fun and whimsical with the stripes mixed in.
The Crystal Gallery at the Delta South Hotel in Edmonton is a beautiful modern venue and I love the unique chandeliers in the room. It made for the perfect backdrop to the table setting which featured clear acrylic Chivari chairs, chargers and pretty satin linens from Special Event Rentals (swoon), gorgeous flowers from Akkiko Floral Artistry, awesome stationary by PinkPolka Design and a beautiful table runner and backdrop from A Chair to Remember.
And let’s not forget the amazing sweet table featuring a gorgeous cake, cupcakes, cake pops, macarons and sugar cookies by Bluebird Cakes! And the best thing to compliment the sweets? The signature Blue Lagoon and Hard Lemonade cocktails that matched the design perfectly.
A while ago I asked my friend Juli from A Modern Proposal to come up with a table theme in turquoise and tangerine. I really wanted to see something pretty put together with these colours, and I tied it to the Rock the Dress shoot that I did last week to get more turquoise and tangerine inspiration. Well, Juli absolutely hit what I was looking for! The orange is beautiful and vibrant, and the turquoise is just perfect! I loved the placecards on the wineglasses with the table numbers, cute and unobtrusive. I’m not sure where to start with how beautiful and organic the centrepiece is! Gorgeous orchids, lillies, moss, and stones, just spectacular! The arrangement is from Flur, a new shop on 124 St., can’t wait to see more flowers from them! Ok, on with the gorgeousness!
