MARRIED! Anne + Dan


What can we say about Anne and Dan apart from this? We're crazy about them!

These two are real. They get it. They completely understand that a wedding should be about being yourself, surrounding yourself with loved ones, and not taking anything too too seriously.

They chose to have their wedding at Poplar Grove Winery in Penticton, BC. Dan's family has a vineyard nearby, and they provide grapes to Poplar Grove, so the connection to the winery is rich (and delicious). As a wedding gift, Dan's parents grew a special section of grapes, which Poplar Grove made into a wedding wine, just for them. Incredible, right?

Some highlights from this gorgeous wedding include:

Anne's amazing shoes

A First Look in the vineyard

One epic first dance!

An enormous amount of love goes out to these two beauties! Enjoy photos and a little taste of video in a Tiny Vid, below.

STYLED! Bohemian Beach Shoot

A Dreamy Beach Shoot at Elk Island

Back in the early Spring, when it seemed alllllmost a little nuts to do a shoot on the beach, a group of our very favorite Edmonton vendors drove out to Elk Island to style a gorgeous beach shoot. The whole thing was designed by Jenelle Jamani and photographed by dear friend Kristin Zabos. FaBLOOMosity provided the most insanely gorgeous airplant bouquets - they almost seemed surreal.

We brought out some of our favorite Neat Rentals pieces, like our dreamy peacock chair, poufs and rugs, and debuted our new handmade macrame backdrop, which was transformed into a dreamy altar for the couple.

We captured a behind-the-scenes Super 8mm plus digital film - take a look! And check out all the incredible vendors, listed below the vid. See the full feature with all the gorgeous photos on the Perfect Palette post.
