Summer Jasper WeddingKailey + David: Summer Jasper Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 30, 2018

While studying medicine, Kailey feigned an interest in orthopaedic surgery just to meet Dave for a coffee. She asked him out for a drink later that day and they spent their first official date skating at Hawrelak Park.

The Proposal

While living in Ottawa, the pair rode bikes along the Rideau Canal, over the Love Lock Bridge and into Gatineau. As they were sitting down to a sunset picnic, Dave popped the question.

The Big Day

Kailey and Dave exchanged vows in front of the grand fireplace at the Jasper Park Lodge—a place they had shared many memories together and with their families. Kailey’s brother performed a hand-fasting ceremony to honour her Scottish heritage. The newlyweds then drove off in her dad’s Triumph TR-6 convertible to have some fun moments alone before the big party.

Varying shades of blue, grey, gold and pops of deep red complemented the late-summer colours of the Rockies. The reception room featured décor they found while living in France, framed family wedding photos, and Kailey’s dad’s vintage skis as a guest book. The sweet-toothed couple created a French Pâtisserie-inspired dessert bar and used their initials to come up with the ultimate midnight snack—deluxe “KD” Mac n’ Cheese.

Newlywed Advice

“We were initially on the fence about doing videography and we were so happy we did it in the end. It captures the feeling of the day so well and we’ll be watching it for years to come. The grandparents that couldn’t travel to the wedding also really appreciated it.”

The pair have recently moved to Victoria, BC, and are excited to explore the island, advance their careers, and start a family together.

Edmonton Ice Castles ShootStyled Shoot: Winter Wonderland

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 13, 2016

Ice Castles Edmonton is an icy attraction from another world. The hand-built glacial formations, archways, and maze-like tunnels transport you to the Arctic in one visit.

No other location could quite capture the whimsical wonder of a winter like the Ice Castles. This was the first year our city hosted Ice Castles so photographers and designers were all over it, giving us so many beautiful shoots to go through. We’ve even seen couples head over there for their wedding photos.

This shoot captures the themes of winter weddings and proves that love can be celebrated year-round!

New Years Eve Great Gatsby WeddingMeredith + John: NYE Gatsby Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on February 2, 2016

Meredith and John’s lives were in sync even before they met. Initially they were both not planning to attend a mutual friend’s birthday bash, but a turn of events led them both to the party and consequently to each other.

The Proposal

John’s proposal was nothing short of thoughtful perfection. Meredith fell in love with a photo her stepsister took while in Paris of a young couple on a bridge with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Planning to visit Meredith at the end of her business trip in London and travel to Paris together, John knew the perfect place to pop the question was on the same bridge in the cherished photo—and that’s exactly what he did.

The Big Day

The couple’s Gatsby themed wedding was influenced by Meredith’s affinity for the 1920’s era and inspired by The Great Gatsby film. The edgy, industrial, speakeasy feel of Paul Hardy Design Studios perfectly complimented the energy channeled from Gatsby’s mansion soirées characterized by fun, celebration and glamour. Deep hues of red paired with gold, sparkle, black, lace and pearl elegantly draped the atmosphere ushering guests back in time to the roaring twenties. Complete with a Bourbon room and streamers falling from the sky, Meredith and John agree their wedding was perfect.

Favourite Moments

Meredith:My favourite moment was when we did our reveal. My husband was such a smokeshow in his custom Pal Zileri navy tuxedo.”

John:Marrying Meredith”

“Hire a wedding planner if you have the budget to do so. Sheryl was so amazing, professional and organized. Live and love your relationship and being engaged rather than your life turning into the wedding. It really worked for us.”

Rustic Bow Valley WeddingAmanda + Irfan: Rustic Bow Valley Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on November 17, 2015

Academic climates seem to draw Amanda and Irfan together. While technically meeting in pre-school at the age of four, Amanda and Irfan reconnected in a business communications course their second year of University. They spent time together on group projects, became friends and soon thereafter fell in love.

The Proposal

Irfan expressed his love to Amanda by whisking her away on a surprise trip to beautiful Tofino, BC, where he planned a candlelit dinner proposal at The Pointe restaurant. Overjoyed by his romantic gesture, Amanda whole-heartedly said—yes.

The Big Day

When it came to wedding plans, everything neatly fell into place. “Deciding on the wedding theme wasn’t really a decision,” says Amanda, “when we found our venue, it blew both of us away, and we knew we had to get married there. The venue certainly guided the rustic part of the theme.” Bias towards whimsically romantic flowers, Amanda chose to accent the rustic deep red and rich green colour scheme with elegant hints of pink, purple and ivory.

Favourite Moments

Soaking in every minute of that perfect day, the newlyweds’ most magical moments were being sun kissed on a cloudy day during the vows and sharing the last dance to an acoustic version of Latch by Sam Smith with loved ones around.

Amanda and Irfan most look forward to creating memories through the everyday adventures that life brings.
