Yesterday we shared the Lakeside Wedding shoot we created for the new Calgary Bridal Guide, and today we’re sharing more of the details! All the photos were taken by One-Edition: Weddings by Rafal Andronowski Photography, and the gorgeous flowers are from Sarah Mayerson Design. Both Rafal and Sarah are super creative and talented at their craft! I’m so enormously grateful to work with talented wedding professionals on collaborative works like this.
For our lakeside wedding table decor, I wanted to keep the look fresh and uncomplicated; suitable for the outdoors. I chose to use a light linen runner and a simple place settings. I used real weathered wood for a place mat and chose a crisp linen napkin on white china. The same weathered wood veneer used for the placemat was used to create a simple, natural themed menu. For the “place cards” I made tiny wood paddles from maple wood leftover from other projects! To complete the theme I added lots of natural elements such as rocks and driftwood.
In keeping with the weathered wood theme, we made a wood table number and bride and groom chair signs from reclaimed barn wood.
A simple, rustic cake placed on a weathered wood riser, with a canvas “cake topper” flag to match the canvas bunting.
And of course, what outdoor, lakeside wedding is complete without s’mores by the campfire?
A few more details to enhance the ambience!
We hoped you’ve enjoyed our Lakeside wedding shoot and perhaps found some inspiration for an outdoor wedding in the Canadian Rocky Mountains! Thanks for stopping by. For more inspiration, check out the Calgary Bridal Guide which is on newstands now in the Calgary and surrounding areas!
A huge thank you to the Calgary Bridal Guide for featuring this shoot, to Sarah Mayerson for the stunning florals, and to Meg and Raf from One-Edition: Weddings by Rafal Andronowski Photography for sharing these great photos with us! And of course, to Don from Naturally Chic who built the tables, wood risers and some of the decor, and helped with the set up at Two Jack Lake!
