This natural wedding inspiration (sneak peek) was a collaboration between Great Events Group, Tara Whittaker Photography and Naturally Chic. We came together on a beautiful fall day in Calgary at the Meadow Muse Pavilion in Fish Creek Provincial Park.
Meadow Muse Pavilion is one of Calgary’s newest wedding facilities operated by Great Events Group. It’s a beautiful open air tent complete with hardwood floors, chandeliers, wood bar and incredible views of the Park. It’s as close to al fresco dining as you can get (but with complete coverage if you need it) and it lends itself to beautiful, natural decor like its surroundings. That said, it’s also a beautiful “blank canvas” that’s suitable for any decor style!
I’m extremely humbled to be asked by Tara to participate in this shoot with amazing professionals like Sarah Mayerson Design and Ali from Modern Pulp stationery design. Aside from collaborating with some extremely talented people, what I also love about this shoot is that we used linens and decor from Great Events‘ rental department (the stunning botanical linens, striped napkins, gold chargers, plates, glasses etc.). It’s a perfect, “one-stop” for venue, catering (have you tasted their food?) and rentals!!
Sarah Mayerson is simply one the best local talents for beautiful, natural floral arrangements!
Ali’s menus were a perfect complement to the decor and I love her place cards on the little wood blocks we made to hold them! I made the wood block place card holders from wood scraps left from other projects.
These gorgous cakes were from Brenda at Cake Works!
This is such a cute favour display of mini terrariums from the Plant in Inglewood. I think guests would love to receive a wedding favor like this! I made the chalkboard bunting from wood scraps left over from other projects as well.
Stay tuned as there will be more of this shoot later on!
