Brrrr, it’s chilly outside this morning but Cliona and Sean’s Charbar Calgary wedding takes me back to a much warmer evening in the East Village. A few things stand out in my memory. There were gorgeous flowers, a smidge of tradition (a nod to the bride’s Irish heritage) and of course, lots of love and laughter. What a treat to work with such a warm and generous couple on their wedding day.
I do love a first look and this one was no exception. The East Village is a bustling area but we found a quiet spot for this moment on the Bow River.
At their photo viewing, Cliona mentioned that she and Sean visited Phil & Sebastian’s on their very first date. Only appropriate to see the sign peeking through the trees in the background.
Pretty Details at a Charbar Calgary Wedding
The flowers at this Charbar Calgary wedding took my breath away. Janelle from Flowers by Janie simply outdid herself when she dressed the copper wedding arch from Rus Vintage with fall blooms. It was also a treat to work with Christy from Beyond the Proposal, who was responsible for the day-of wedding coordination. Everything was flawless.
We finished the evening with a few shots of the happy couple on the rooftop of the Simmons building. Congratulations to Cliona and Sean!
