A Styled Shoot
There is just something about the fall season that makes you get those warm fuzzy feelings inside, just like you feel when you’re in love.
We went “sightseeing” one day to check out a local wedding venue that we had heard amazing things about. The Coutts Centre for Western Canadian Heritage, is something that you think only exists in magazines. With the stunning fall colours as our backdrop our styled shoot inspiration was created.
Coutts Centre, is a unique century old homestead near Nanton, Alberta with beautiful gardens, walking trails and stunning views of the Canadian Rockies. This was the background of our shoot, and it was truly breathtaking.
We took the essence of the venue and came up with what we like to call our “rustic glamour” theme for this shoot. Playing off the textures of wood, wheat, dried leaves & twigs, adding in the warm colours of, Honey Gold, Burnt Orange, Deep Navy, Wheat Beige and Gold, our shoot fell together with ease.
Lovesky Design Inc. brought this theme to life with the paper goods including; Save the Date cards, Invitations with RSVP’s, and menus.
The Wed Group of Companies had the perfect rentals to emphasize our “rustic glamour” featuring a gold sequin table cloth, geometric lanterns, paired with rocks and wooden slabs created the perfect combination for our tables and centerpieces.
Adding in lots of accessories like wooden ladders, crates, customized signs from Sign It Up, the stunning, velvet Fall table runner from Lindsay Rempel Art, and gorgeous floral arrangements by Pretty Petals Floral Designs and – volia! Rustic Glamour is in the house!
Shelby & Carter, our models, are one of the cutest couples we’ve met. We were so happy they agreed to do this shoot with us. One of our “must-haves” for our shoots is to have fun, happy, totally in love couples – because that’s what we want to portray in the photos. The couple was styled thanks to The Bridal Experience Boutique and the perfect bridal gown, and Renouvelez la Boutique had just the right look for our guys attire. Both outfits were accented with beautiful jewellery thanks to Forge & Facet Jewellers
Now onto THE FOOD! Florence & Ron Brown are the two lovely people behind Brown’s Enterprizes, and the caterers for Coutts Centre. They cooked up a few meals to showcase the deliciousness they can create for your event! They use only the best ingredients and staff to make your event a success, and we wish you could have smell-o-blog because man-oh-man it smelt divine!
With all good food comes good cake! WOW, usually we have a billion words to describe the beauty of something but “wow” truly sums up this cake by Sugar Illusions. It fit our theme perfectly, and Stacy made that happen with just a few descriptive words. She is truly talented, and anyone who hires her will be amazed by her work.
Last, but certainly not least, we had the pleasure of working with Rocket Pop Film Studio for this shoot. Rocket Pop Film Studio offers storytelling wedding films, adventure films, and a variety of custom business related services as well. They are bringing back the wedding day video, and doing it with class. A video of your wedding day is something we think everyone should have – and Rocket Pop Film Studio is who can make that happen for you!
And now, the moment you have been waiting for….the photos! We cannot thank Bosalita Photography enough for jumping on board with our idea and helping us to capture every aspect so beautifully.
