When I was asked to design a styled wedding at a new venue in Alberta, I was thrilled. The constant lockdowns and lack of real weddings has definitely taken away our opportunity to create beauty and magic for our clients. I felt inspired by the venue’s blank canvas of white walls and natural lighting to create a fresh look, so I went with a modern peach and citrus palette that makes you crave sweet, summer air. The ceremony featured soft, rosy linens that hung from the ceiling with a romantic poem printed down the middle and hand drawn peaches and florals on the sides. We hung rows of fresh blooms in front as the piece de resistance with more whimsical arrangements on the floor. It looked like a fairytale garden. The happy couple were both elegantly dressed in white. We loved Andrea’s sleek, low ponytail with the handmade pearl wrap and Eric’s blush bow tie to complete his look. I dressed the table in a white majestic linen with a peach satin runner. Each setting featured gold rimmed charger plates with bella white dinner plates and modern white and gold flatware to tie the pieces together. The clear ghost chairs were a deliberate design choice to achieve the fresh and modern look. One of my favourite pieces of the table were the custom printed linen napkins. Each napkin unfolded to reveal the menu, making the reveal and experience. My other favourite part was the custom, small batch chocolate bars made as the guest favours. Each white chocolate bar had dried orange peel, florals and a delicate vellum wrap with a gorgeous white ink design that was sealed with wax.
