Seriously, Amanda and Matt are hands down, one of my most favorite couples I’ve worked to date! With so much creative freedom from the wedding photography to the calligraphy side, I had a blast working with them for their Charbar wedding in the heart of Calgary.
The stationery was one of my favorite things from the wedding details side because we narrowed down which elements they wanted to use for the wedding and what was important to them. When their first engagement session got postponed because of a thick fog covering the downtown, it obscured any hopes of an urban look. So we took that chance to hang out and talk about their invites. I met their little hedgehog pet Wonton and I suggested he should play a part. When I got to their reception, I was pleasantly surprised to see a charming hedgehog cake made by their friend baker Shana. Their reception was gorgeous decorated with those terrariums that ended up being the mystery prize at each table based on who was the youngest and oldest at each table.
Congrats Amanda and Matt on your beautiful wedding day! I’m always grateful to be a part of a wedding day, and this one will always hold a special place in my heart.
The first look was one of the highlights as it allowed them to get a glimpse of each other privately before anyone else did. You can definitely see all those happiness overflowing when Matt turned around.
Flower girl Isobel is efficient distributing those flowers. So cute tipping the entire basket in one go!
