Edmonton Wedding Photographer | Aqua, Yellow & Grey Tablescape at the Delta South Crystal Gallery

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

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.

Banff Wedding Photographer | Banff Springs wedding with a vintage-y, antique feel & more detail shots than I’ve ever taken before!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

So a few months ago, in March to be precise, Derek and I headed off to Banff to attend Susan and Krister’s wedding. I did my best to be a good guest and stay out of the hired photographers’ way while still nabbing a few shots during the ceremony (at St Georges in the Pines) and the reception (Fairmont Banff Springs) for fun. The detail shots, however, were where I got to run wild! Susan asked if i’d be ok to shoot the details for them, and of course I was! For one, I’ve never just “hung out” between the ceremony and reception, I’m always off taking pictures of the family and the wedding party, so what in the world was I going to do for 3 hours other than take photos? Secondly… well, look at the details! It’s a wedding photographers dream (ok, maybe not all photographers love the detail shots, but I do) to have hours to shoot the details with no pressure and no time contraints. And, um, yeah, look at the rings I got to play with for the ring shots… love!!

The details at Susan’ and Krister’s wedding were spectacular! There was an awesome vintage/antique feel which really suited Mt Stephan Hall at the Fairmont Banff Springs. There were lots of different flower arrangements and tons of awesome vintage tins used in the centrepieces for the tables. There was a pretty rockin’ latte bar too, with lots of vintage teacups and the sweet table… oh my, the sweet table! It was decked out in super tasty cookies and had the most awesome cake from The Art of Cake. I love the cake topper which was just perfect for a pair of photographers getting married. I do wonder if it’s wrong to pledge my undying love to chivari chairs… ok, it’s is, but I can’t help it! Look how amazing those chairs looked! Everywhere you look there were thoughtful, fantastic details. Also totally loving Krister’s felt flower bout… awesome!

Speaking of awesome, well, that had to be Susan and Krister’s wedding planner, Rebecca from High Culture: Weddings & Special Events. Rebecca was fantastic and was very speedy with the set-up of things, and as we can see from the photos, the reception was breathtaking. The gorgeous flowers were from Studio Bloom in Edmonton.

Green, white and black sweet table | Wedding Inspiration

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

A few months back I was part of a wedding open house called Get Married Edmonton. Rebecca from High Culture put together an awesome sweet table in my office for the event using lime green, white and black for a colour scheme with a few baroque detals and it looked awesome! All of the goodies were delicious and looked amazing! You can buy all of the tasty goodies from the The Art of Cake . The swanky linens are from A Chair to Remember!  I love the idea of a styled sweet table for your guests at your wedding reception. It’s a fun alternative to individual guest favours too, just like a candy buffet! Here’s few images of the super aewsome table set up! Feast your eyes on the yumminess!

Wedding Inspiration – vintage-inspired sweet table in pastels

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

This fantastic table of goodies was designed by Juli from A Modern Proposal to fit a vintage-y pastel wedding scheme. A sweet table is a nice alternative to individual favours and can really add to the overall look of the reception decor. This sweet table featured a pretty yellow three-tiered cake with white lace accents and yellow flowers. The cake, cupcakes and cookies are from Jam on Your Face and were absolutely delicious! The table featured glass bowls with Kisses surrounded by coconut marshmallows from Duchess Bake Shop. Let’s not forget the wicked tasty macarons also from Duchess. The table was finished off with antique milk glass vases with yellow flowers. Oh so pretty!

Ok, so I can’t share the actually goodies, so feast on the photos instead….!

Wedding Inspiration: Sweet tables in Aqua and Red

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

This fantastic table of goodies was designed by Juli from A Modern Proposal to fit an aqua and red wedding scheme. A sweet table is a nice alternative to individual favours and can really add to the overall look of the reception decor. This particulat sweet table featured a two-tier cake made in aqua with a modern red circle geometric pattern. The cake was also completed by matching sugar cookie cakes with red flowers. The cake and cookies are from Jam on Your Face and were absolutely delicious! The table featured glass jars filled with strawberry marshmallows, aqua M&Ms, blue Jelly Bellys, blue candy-coated Jordan almonds, and red Swedish Berries. As if the table of yummys wasn’t pretty enough, Juli put together two pomanders of red carnations to complete the table, along with a great aqua and red polka-dotted table runner.

Ok, so I can’t share the actually goodies, so feast on the photos instead….!
