Craigleith Ski Club Wedding

Photos By: Michael Rousseau

It’s always the sweet little touches that make a wedding truly shine – like the fact that couple Shannae and Sean exchanged vows at the same ski club where Sean spent vacations skiing with his family. Their wedding day was full of unexpected pops of fun, like the dove release during the ceremony, the sequined bridesmaid dresses, and the dramatic floral arrangements by Pink Twig Floral. Thank you Michael Rousseau for bringing your A game as always!

From the bride, Shannae: We decided to get married in Blue Mountain, Ontario at a Ski Club where my husband grew up skiing with his family and the venue (Craigleith Ski Club) had a rustic cabin feel to it so I wanted to replicate that in the look and feel of the wedding. We would describe the vision as rustic, mountains, glam, plum, gold.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Start a pinterest page with a board for every category or item that you need for your wedding and buy your dress and before seriously planning decor. The dress sets the tone of the evening and Pinterest will help you map out your day. Be present on the day of, take everything in. This sounds so cliche but I feel very grateful to have been given this advice and I’m thankful that I listened. I remember every moment and everything that happened on our wedding day and I am very grateful for that!

Slate Gray Wedding Inspiration

Time and again we’re blown away by the beautiful images that come out of photography workshops, just like this one from film photographers extraordinaire Jess Barfield and Taylor Lord. Anne Brookshire Photography happily took part in the day, capturing moments of delicate and sophisticated beauty with some of the prettiest cool blues and grays we’ve seen yet, styled by Lindsey Zamora.

From the stylist, Lindsey Zamora: I was so honored to design and style the summer workshop series by Jess Barfield and Taylor Lord. I am loving the dusty-blue color palette at the moment and even more in love when it is combined with grays and creams. The overall feel for the shoot was soft and romantic, a feeling that would be translated into every element. I loved how the bride’s wrap caught the light so perfectly and the effortless flow of the gauzy linen across the worn table; it is this juxtaposition that I seek out in every design.

From the photographer, Anne Brookshire: This is the styled shoot from the August 4th Jess Barfield & Taylor Lord Workshop! The designer/stylist Lindsey is so talented. She was inspired by the color of slate with blue tints & built the concept from there! I love the mix of soft & modern elements, as well as all the floral pieces that Lindsey foraged from her own backyard.

River Bend Colorado Wedding

Photos By: Our Love is Loud

Truth be told, I can’t even begin to count all the ways I love this wedding captured by Our Love is Loud with team Organically You Events and Bella Lu Floral. Paige and Dillon’s wedding took place under the Colorado trees in front of an aisle lined with antique rugs and enough twinkle lights to make your heart start swooning. Prepare to fall hard for this one, folks!

From the bride, Paige: My wedding was not something I ever thought about until I got engaged. The only thing I knew for sure was that I wanted it outside… the whole thing! I love the free spirited, bohemian look and tried to step outside of the box. I didn’t want anything to be overly “typical”.

Flower recipe: Oh man.. Flowers were the biggest part of my wedding! My bouquet was made of willow eucalyptus, pieris, burgundy ranuculus, bright pink spray roses, sword fern, blackberry twig, Queen Anne’s lace, purple kale, bay leaves and some pheasant feathers! My girls wore arm bands and they were all different. My flower crown and bouquet were absolutely amazing!

Boho, whimsical, and earthy or flower child-y (not even a word!) are probably the best ways to describe the look of my wedding. We did not have a color scheme. My bridesmaids’ dresses were a sage and my maid of honor wore a dark purple dress with a flower pattern! My mom created the sign directed people to their seats and also gathered a birds nest for the ring bearer. Other than that, we used a lot of etsy!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? Try your very best to have fun and soak up every second of your engagement! It is a once in a lifetime experience and it shouldn’t be wasted stressing about the wedding! Also, do what you want to do and take everyone’s opinions with a grain of salt. I had to fight a few battles to get exactly what I wanted, but so happy I did!! Everything will fall into place.

From the photographer, Our Love is Loud: We recently shot an incredible wedding at a new venue in Lyons, Colorado called River Bend. Last fall a flood swept through Lyons, Colorado causing all kinds of damage to the land and community. River Bend was a venue by the river built during the restoration of the town. We think its one of the most beautiful venues in Colorado. Not only did this couple bring it with some killer style wardrobe wise, the details of both the ceremony and reception put on by Bella Lu Floral and others are incredible.
