An Elegant Wedding With Modern Details in Canmore, Alberta

  |  By Kimberly Aglipay

Jeanine and Jared's wedding was an elegant, timeless celebration with unique modern accents. "We envisioned fresh florals in ivory, champagne and light caramel like you might see at an English garden party," Jeanine shares. "We contrasted this with black stoneware charger plates and black taper candles in gold candlestick holders."

Gorgeous flowers from Flower Artistry tied the theme together. "I was so overcome with emotion when I first saw the bouquets," Jeanine recalls. "They were everything I could have imagined and Lyn from Flower Artistry was able to capture my vision with such creativity."

For the couple, the first look and the ceremony were the highlights of the day. "We had the most beautiful location overlooking the mountain valley and town of Canmore, and our gazebo was draped in stunning flowers and greenery," Jeanine says. "The whole ceremony felt like a perfect representation of our relationship and our love for our friends and family."

Wanting to do something different for their first dance, Jeanine and Jared enlisted the help of a local dance studio to choreograph and teach the couple a collection of dances for three songs that were all different styles and genres. "We learned ballroom dancing, jazz, and a Michael Jackson rendition, complete with a mini flash mob at the end with our wedding party joining in," Jeanine says. "It felt so rewarding to have practiced and rehearsed for so many months and it all came together so well."
