The City of Light is the inspiration for this French brasserie styled shoot; we’ve taken the romance of dining in Paris to an intimate celebration of love at a Calgary restaurant. Decadent shades of merlot, cream and French blue in the décor and stationery are a whimsical nod to the tricolour flag. Crisp white linens and pops of gold in the table setting add a luxurious contrast to the crinkled table runner and rustic floral arrangements. Our bride’s loose chignon and simple drop earrings are the perfect accessories to her flowing gown of lace and chiffon, while her debonair groom pairs a lustrous charcoal suit with a classic black bowtie. If a relaxed vibe and pure romance is the theme for your day, consider a cozy fête at your favourite local restaurant. Indulge in fine food, wine and company, and raise a champagne flute to joie de vivre.
