Calgary wedding photography details

Is it alright if I squeeze in one more “wrap-up” post from 2014?  Recently I posted a selection of sweet wedding moments and today I’m sharing my favourite wedding details from last year.  Some are from real weddings and some are part of inspiration shoots that I styled.  Today’s bride and groom put a lot of time and effort to ensure that their wedding reflects who they are as a couple.  As a result, they often include pretty and personal details that are a delight to photograph.

First up is this getaway Vespa with an adorable twist on the tradition of tying shoes to the bumper.  Thanks to Fleurish Flower Shop for the blooms and Modern Pulp for the ‘Just Married’ sign.

This “will you be my bridesmaid” brunch in Stampede style is a favourite of mine and it’s been very popular on Pinterest.  In keeping with the Stampede theme,  Ali from Modern Pulp created these bags to hold mini donuts.

This Spring inspiration shoot in the Oval Room at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel included many pastel touches including these geometric place card holders by Naturally Chic.

A market-style bundle of tulips wrapped in brown paper, make a cheerful favour for wedding guests.


I loved the floral robes from Singing Slowly that Kari gave her bridesmaids before her Kelowna wedding.   What a kind and practical treat for her ladies.


Recently this botanical-themed wedding shoot at Meadow Muse Pavilion was featured in Avenue Magazine.  Two of the smallest, yet most impactful details from this shoot were these little gold deer scattered throughout the decor and terrarium favours from Plant in Inglewood.

From this same project, I’m completely smitten with this loose and unstructured bouquet from Sarah Mayerson Design, complete with market-fresh ingredients (kale and artichokes).


I love the colour and whimsy that yarn from Stash brought to this ceremony inspiration shoot with Flowers by Janie.  The boutonniere and bouquet were wrapped in colourful strands of seasonal colour.  Oscar’s dapper attire came from Ed Williams Menswear in Crowfoot.
