Something Old, Something New, Something Cold, Something Blue – Edmonton Wedding Inspiration

Let’s sneak in one last winter-inspired post before welcoming this awesome Edmonton spring weather with open arms. Read on for the details of the shoot, written by Sandra of Sandra Bettina Weddings & Events

Living in Alberta, our winters tend to be cold but insanely gorgeous with lots of snow and skies that stay sunny, bright and happy. Knowing that a winter shoot was the main goal, I set out on the hunt for the perfect location. After finding the incredibly quaint and historic “Old Stone House” in Onoway, Alberta (which serves amazing brunch!), the inspiration & ideas just came flooding.

Mixing rustic elements with new and modern pieces, a cozy but elegant and romantic shoot was our end result.  Wearing the Holland gown from Blush by Hayley Paige, our bride looked effortlessly gorgeous as she snuggled up with her groom for sun-kissed hugs and romance with the Old Stone House & property as the perfect backdrop.

Soft powdery blues, creams and whites were used and incorporated throughout, complimenting our elegant winter theme and beautiful outdoor scenery. In designing the shoot, three “stations” were created.

Our first was the formal dining table with a gorgeous floral runner of fluffy hydrangeas & big roses. Mixing the unexpected elements of plexiglas and wooden accents, an elegant but inviting feel was created. The menus and place cards continued the hydrangea and rose theme in a subtle but stunning black and white colour pallet.

Next, our couple headed over to a snuggle station with a bench for two where pies in jars awaited them and some quality alone time could be enjoyed. Cuddled up under a cozy blanket, the couple kept each other warm while sneaking in some kisses in between bites of the delicious pie.

Finally, our rustic wine and dessert station was nestled in the woods and featured German Gluhwein, an assortment of delicious pies and a small but stunning naked cake. Accented with beautiful florals, cinnamon sticks, grapes and acorns, this would certainly be a guest favourite at any event!
