Indie Elopement in Alberta’s BadlandsStyled Wedding Shoot in Drumheller

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on January 19, 2016

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.

Which Ceremony Design Do You Love Most?7 Ceremony Designs From Blush's Featured Weddings

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on November 26, 2015

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 VINEYARD INSPIRED CEREMONY

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.

THE CANDLE-LIT CEREMONY

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

Persian Rugs

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

Outdoor Summer Wedding: Kara + Kyle

Photography: Lunss photos

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.

THE REGAL CEREMONY 
Jenny & Hon's Oasis Wedding

Photography: Sharon Litchfield Photography | Design: Jennifer Bergman Weddings

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.

I’d Stand In A Lake For YouStyled Shoot in Canmore, Alberta

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on July 25, 2015

Being in Alberta gives us the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains as the perfect backdrop. Thanks to this inspiration shoot by Lucier Photography, we get to envision what engagement or wedding photos in Canmore would look like. Rather than shooting models, Danielle with Lucier Photography chose a real-life couple she photographed in 2014 to capture a more genuine connection. Victoria’s dazzling gown was complimented by bold floral arrangements by Audrey’s Flowers. Leigh surely rose to the occasion to give us incredible shots in the lake while carrying his breathtaking wife.

Edmonton Bridal Expo 2014Blush Magazine At Edmonton's Largest & Most Elegant Bridal Show

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on October 22, 2014

If you’ve been following us on social media you have probably seen a ton of updates regarding the Edmonton Bridal Expo. Blush Magazine has proudly attended the show for four consecutive years giving us the chance to meet thousands of brides and their special guests. Katherine Lomax and her team do an excellent job organizing this event each year, even the exhibitors find time to enjoy the expo. This year one exhibitor that still sticks out to me is Borsellino Photography, this company is run by a husband & wife duo. Aside from awesome props, what makes them really stand out is their digital sharing features, once your photo strip is printed you have the option to text message, tweet or share the images on Facebook. A few new vendors we were so glad to meet were Samantha Pham with KS Events, Becka & Bryan with Twitchy Finger Photography, Jenna Fisher with Cocktails & Details, and Justine Milton with Milton Photography. I wish we had images of all their booths to share because you won’t believe how these exhibitors transformed a conference centre.

With the help of Janelle Jamani of Special Event Rentals, Fabloomosity, and McCallum Printing we were also able to create an incredible booth. Everyone that paid us a visit received a complimentary copy of our Randy Fenoli issue. Here are a few images from our booth and of other lovely exhibitors: Delica Bridal, Dress My Day, Cocktails & Details, Elegant Touches, and Special Event Rentals.

If you recently got engaged and need a show to attend in the Fall of 2015, the Edmonton Bridal Expo is one to mark. Photo Credits: Shandro Photo
