Decor & Design: Stylized Shoot for 9th wedding anniversary; Leather, Willow, Copper, Pottery/Ceramic
One of our favourite stylized photo shoots was for the Calgary Bridal Guide. Our canvas was the iconic Emerald Lake Lodge. We had the Cilantro ballroom all to ourselves and took great advantage. With soaring ceilings, tall windows, rich wood, and a stone fireplace we were in heaven. The task at hand was to incorporate the 9th wedding anniversary elements; Leather, Willow, Copper, Pottery/Ceramic.
The point of a stylized shoot is to come up with unique ideas and showcase them along with gorgeous elements. To make the table special we had a custom made copper frame and added curly willow, ivy, and three ornate chandeliers hanging above it. String lighting was hung to add more romance. All frames, fixtures, and lighting were provided by the talented team at Orange Frog Productions Inc. This was the main feature of the room. However, when we got started with flowers, we couldnt stop! We covered the entire middle of the head table with flowers, flowers, and more flowers! Copper wiring and accents were twisted and thread through the floral additions, with candlelight interspersed. We amazed even ourselves at what we and our in house florist came up with.
The table and chairs were dressed in rich fabrics provided by Special Event Rentals. Double stacked charger plates in wood and glass were placed at each setting and accented by a triple layered napkin in monochromatic pink tones. Chairs were enhanced by adding leather belts with custom made buckles from CG Designs, a unique and fun way to incorporate the required elements. Impressive handmade ceramics were used to give the "bride and groom" seats a distinguished look, provided by About Canada Banff, and "Mr." and "Mrs." signs in copper glitter from Pink Umbrella Designs. Then we added beautiful copper bears at each place setting from About Canada Banff along with delicate stationary from Pink Umbrella Designs. Floral additions were placed on each menu to finish the look.
There is so much more to say about this beautiful shoot, but I'll let the below pictures say the rest. Photos by the wonderful Beverley Cavanagh Photography. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did and still do!
