~ Modern style with romantic accents
I had the opportunity to collaborate with some amazing wedding vendors to create the entry set up at The Wedding Fair on January 13th, 2019! All vendors worked their butts off, but it was worth it – and the pictures are awesome!
With this look we wanted to bring the mountains to Calgary. We live so close to the mountains, and the mountains are always a part of us. We wanted to bring the mountains to Calgary, to show guests that you can have a mountain wedding without having the high costs that come with booking in the mountains! Any bride could have this look carried through with a ceremony in a traditional church, or reception at a hotel or restaurant.
Cardboard cutouts in soft white silhouettes of trees and bears help set the stage. These cutouts are cost effective ways of decorating and are great photo opps for guests as well. The white drapery, white sticks and white cutouts together create a sophisticated 3D effect of space, texture and light. Creative Edge Flowers created a circle floral hoop of feathered pampas leaves, greenery and flowers takes center stage and is the perfect ceremony backdrop. Wispy branches, and more greenery ground the space on either side of the hoop.
With mountains as our main theme it was important to keep the decor as natural and rustic as possible. Over-sized farm wood tables, and gorgeous wood chairs help ground this look. Rustic wine barrels lead guests through the space, from the entry and prominent cake table to the bar/flat lay table.
Greys, silvers and soft dusty pinks with black and white helped the stationery blend throughout the space. We used modern prints of marble on the stationery and table runner decal, which represented the stone and rock of the mountains. We took a geometric approach to the menu, with a triangle pop up, to represent the shape of the mountains. The pop up brings a modern approach to the menu, and is a fun detail that brings drama to the table. The place cards mimic the menu, tucked under the wine glass, the triangle name stands up so that it is easy to read. The soft grey and dusty pink colours work so well together in the stationery. There is a large contrast in clean modern all-capitals text throughout the stationery line, and the rough, brush stroke font of the names and monogram that make this look clearly modern.
