Stylized Wedding ShootOld World Charm Meets Modernity

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on July 17, 2015

Who doesn’t love a charming stylized wedding shoot? Combine the already beautiful venue with a blend of loose floral arrangements and the charm of antique china shot by Red Bloom Photography and it’s a win for amazing inspiration!

Reflections Weddings & Events gathered a group of Calgary wedding vendors at the British House to shoot this perfect blend of old beauty with modern day romance.

The colour palette combined the romantic and fresh colours of turquoise, white, lavender and punches of fuchsia to create a unique summer palette.

The water colour cake and stationery brought the old world into the new again and the mix of 19th century antique furniture with the 2015 Hayley Paige wedding gown showcased that everything old can be new again.

Enjoy the awe-spiring images below!

Forever LoveStylized Shoot: JoyFoley Weddings & Team

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 27, 2014

In previous issues of Blush we’d coordinate our own photo shoot and design a set to provide engaged couples with wedding day inspiration. It’s always a lot of fun for us to select models, dress them up, and then build an entire set around a specific theme. Since we are also open to submitted stylized shoots, Stacey Foley with JoyFoley weddings sent us an email with images of a shoot she worked so very hard at. At the time, we were also on the hunt for the perfect cover! We had yet to cover a wedding cake and we refused to go with an ordinary one, it had to be over the top to grace the cover. Well, not only did Stacey’s shoot receive our fashion/design spread, the cake designed by Style Cakes graced the cover of our Spring Summer 2014 edition. Luckily, Stacey had great photographers, Eternal Reflections Photography captured all the details so beautifully! There are more local vendors to credit below the pretty images.

Dress My Day PreviewVendor Spotlight: Dress My Day Linen & Chair Cover Rentals

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on December 6, 2013

Although Dress My Day has been operating for two years, it is likely that you will be hearing much more about this rental company in 2014. Located in Edmonton, Dress My Day, led by Priya Khan has advertised at Edmonton Bridal Expo and in Blush Magazine, but there is no mistaking that in 2014, Khan and her team will become a leading option for Edmonton’s brides. Currently a home-based business, Dress My Day is looking forward to one day opening a showroom.

Dress My Day is based on a “yes” philosophy where a bride’s vision is achieved. Khan says she does not “want brides to [think] their vision is [un]attainable” which is why she offers custom options. Providing personalized service, Khan is with her clients from the initial consultation to the event. Khan personally ensures that a client’s vision comes to fruition; therefore, she has opted to take a maximum of two events a weekend, with no more than fifty events a year.

Dress My Day invited us to have a sneak peek at their 2014 catalogue. Some of our personal favourites: full sequin linens available in a variety of colours, as well as the assortment of prints — particularly the art deco styles!

Services:

  • All linens/chair covers available for rentals
  • Unrestricted hours of consultation from beginning to end
  • Theme and style development
  • Decor design and planning
