May we start using a new wedding term as of today? Because I think this shoot can only be described as Vintage Field Chic! Florals by Calyx Floral Design and vintage pieces from Special Event Rentals were beautifully designed to create a romantic outdoor setting with a unique vintage style.

Folks, this next shoot is as cool as it gets. The all-star team of talented vendors which includes Jenelle Jamani, Kristin Zabos Photography backdrops, Blush Artistry, Ruth Banks, Neat Rentals, Special Event Rentals — just to name a few — put together an eclectic boho shoot inspired by nature and bohemian styling. This is one you won’t want to miss!
What is the formula for a perfect shoot? We get asked this question a lot! The ‘Indie Elopement in Alberta’s Badlands’ shoot checked all the major points; distinctiveness, high quality photography and details. Even with all that, the location is what really blew us away. Local wedding vendors drove across the endless golden prairies into the hills and rock formations, Alberta’s badlands, for the perfect setting.
Knowing that the very ground this was shot on is filled with ancient bones of dinosaurs who once ruled the land will keep you in wonderment.
Twins! Pantone has for the first time crowned two colours of the year for 2016. Rose Quartz and Serenity are shades of pale pink and baby blue.
Pantone’s annual announcement is watched closely by the design and fashion industry as the tipoff to a trend that usually spreads through home décor, fashion and design.
Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
Here is an inspiration board we’ve put together to showcase what a Pantone 2016 wedding may look like.
The wedding ceremony is truly a reflection of two souls coming together and uniting as one. We’ve chosen some of Blush’s favourite ceremony designs that reflected unique aspects of the couple’s personalities.
THE MODERN CEREMONY
This design showcased a modern and chic style. The arctic theme of the Renaissance Edmonton Airport Hotel was enhanced with the choice of silver chiavari chairs. Greenery on modern tall vases with vines on each side of them symbolically reached towards the center where the couple united and recited their vows.
The wine barrels, candles, floral colour tones, custom wood boxes, and the stone wall all played a part in achieving a romantic vineyard for this couple who’s inspiration came from Napa Valley.
This couple was able to bring to their wedding a medieval and sensual atmosphere. The dark wood and the hanging candle-lit chandeliers, along with the candle outlined aisle set the ambiance for an intimate wedding ceremony.
THE OUTDOOR CULTURAL CEREMONY
The amazing thing about nature is that it is beautiful in it’s own simple way. This couple let nature be the decoration, Persian rugs were added to pay a nod to the groom’s culture.
THE LAKEFRONT CEREMONY

A still lake, freshly cut logs, and a pop of colour with yellow sunflowers makes this the perfect backdrop for a “girl and boy next door” feel.
This type of design exudes glamour and romance. The drapes and floral were all different shades of white made which made for a regal and grand feel, tall vases and floral were setup at the top of the stairs for where the prince and princess would unite and recite their vows.
THE BEACH CEREMONY
The blue skies, the blue water, the beach as the backdrop, and the benches for chairs made this wedding chic yet casual all at the same time. This couple was able to show their passion for water in this beautiful beach ceremony.
