Whimsical Carnival-Themed Summer Wedding in Canada

Posted by Caitlin on Jun 25, 2013

Miquela & Jason 

July 2

Alberta, Canada

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one? 

We knew the second we saw the Blatchford Hanger that it was perfect. We wanted something different, sort of a blank slate we could work with. The setting of the historical park and the nostalgic feeling around the entire area worked for us. We also loved that we could open the space up to the outdoors for dancing!

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Jason had given me a card before the wedding. Inside was a little pin with a piece of toast and jam. It was so cute, and the perfect color, so I pinned it to the bottom of my bouquet. When I walked down the aisle and saw Jason, he had pinned the matching toast and peanut butter pin to his boutonniere. It was the best moment when we saw each other and realized we both had the pins– just a little reminder how well we go together.

2. We had so much fun going around the city taking photos with the wedding party! We stopped in antique shops, candy stores, clothing boutiques, the old midway– whatever we saw that looked fun. Everyone was so wonderful, allowing us to take over their businesses for a few minutes to get some good shots. While we walked from place to place, strangers were cheering, people were clapping, cars were honking – it was so nice!  

3. We had set up a blank canvas at the reception and asked all of our friends and family to paint a little something on it throughout the evening. Not knowing what the end result might be, we were left with a really amazing piece of art that now hangs proudly in our home. It’s the best reminder of our day; full of love from the ones we love.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

Our first dance! I didn’t know, but Jason had organized each place setting to have a candle with a note saying “ Please help me surprise Miquela during our first dance by lighting this candle. Each candle represents a special moment we have shared with each one of you, and I am hoping we can create ONE moment together we will never forget….” Needless to say, when we started our first dance, and I saw candle after candle light up around me, I was totally surprised and overwhelmed with emotion. It was a very surreal moment, and a memory that I will never forget.

Personalized, Outdoor Wedding Overlooking Lake Tahoe

Mandy & Adrian 

September 22

Tahoe City, California 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The fenced-in outdoor lawn and stately pine trees. It was also two blocks from Skylandia Park, which is a  Tahoe City Public Park with Lake Tahoe as a backdrop.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

Our DIY bunting flags, our DIY programs and menu cards, courtesy of my sister & maid of honor, and our cupcakes and macarons instead of a traditional wedding cake.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding day that you cannot stop thinking about.

Exchanging our vows with each other! We had each selected our own vows and waited to share them until our wedding ceremony. We were both very overwhelmed with emotion and tears of happiness came pouring out!
