Some words from our photographers, Chicks that Click…..
The venue was a 1956 Red Barn near Carmose, Alberta. Husband and Wife models were a perfect edition to the shoot, allowing their love to create a true feeling of romance. The vision we had was to create a balance between rustic and vintage. The setting in the barn was perfect for the ‘rustic feel’ as well as creating a romantic setting for the couple. With the decor we brought in the vintage feel. The head table displayed chairs from the early 1900’s, complete with lace table cloth that gives the entire shoot elegance.
The DIY details are what completes this shoot. With handmade menus, signs, favors, delicious cherry pie and decor are pieced together perfectly.
It wouldn’t be a True Alberta Wedding without the chance of snow! These two braved the ice cold winds and we are so glad they did. This shoot wouldn’t have been complete without these beautiful snowy images.
I couldn’t agree more. When I get married, please just duplicate everything!
Thank you SOOO much to Chicks that Click for this stunning shoot that made our inspirations go into overdrive. Also, thanks to the talented vendors who made this shoot possible.
I am personally a fan of DIY projects. I love showing my personality and giving everything at an event “my stamp”.
I helped my brother and sister-in-law with DIY projects when they were getting married but I do understand that it may not be for everyone. (See wedding photos here) For some of your crazy busy bees out there, maybe it’s best to leave the wedding projects in someone else’s hands!
