A Roaring Twenties-Inspired Wedding in Priddis, Alberta

Bride and Groom

Meeting at just 19 and 20 years old, this couple knew from the beginning that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Daniel popped the question the day he and Nadine took possession of their newly-purchased home. “We were both exhausted from a long day of moving and unpacking but the moment was electric, utterly perfect and genuine to who Dan is,” Nadine shares.

Nadine and Daniel have always been fans of the 1920s, so this seemed like an obvious choice for their wedding theme. Everything from the couple’s fashion choices and opulent decor to their signature cocktails and art deco stationery perfectly reflected the decadence of the roaring twenties.

One of Nadine’s favourite parts of the day was her first look at her groom. “Daniel was patiently awaiting my arrival as I made my way down from my bridal suite balcony. I still remember approaching him and gently tapping him on the shoulder. When he turned around I thought I might burst. He looked so handsome and had the most remarkable smile on his face; I felt beautiful and so utterly loved. It was such a calm moment for us both and started off our day together in the best possible way,” she says.
