It’s currently the Big Valley Jamboree weekend here in Alberta. getwed wanted to share a session of one of their couples that was held at the Jamboree as it was where they got engaged.

Valeria and Jeremy’s outdoor engagement is sure to put a smile on your face, especially with the beautiful weather we’ve been having as of late. Styled by WuLaLa Weddings & Events , the combination of balloons, bubbles and an evening picnic are pretty much perfect. Photos are by Lucy Chang Photography.
Says Lucy (photographer): After a long and cold winter, Valeria and Jeremy wanted to celebrate their engagement shoot with something festive and outdoorsy; the solution was to have a picnic-themed shoot! So we took a ferry to Centre Island and picked the perfect spot on the grass surrounded by tall trees, a beautiful lake and a beautiful sunset serving as a backdrop. The location worked perfectly: the fresh green grass, the vintage picnic basket, the colourful balloons and flowers, the classic Coco-Cola bottles and treats gave the perfect aesthetic to their beautiful shoot!

This morning we’ve got a vibrant styled shoot that from Montreal based photographer, Chantal Levesque. It’s always fun to showcase unique ideas. Inspired by the Color Me Rad marathons that’s been all the rage lately, Patrice and Helene wore white and had loads of fun covering each other in color.
Today’s featured wedding centered around the theme of ‘old world romance’ in it’s luxurious feel, filled with sparkle, abundant blooms and crisp, styled stationery. Captured by Delmore Creative Inc. Photography, Melissa & James worked with RL Designs Inc. to create an outdoor tented reception that guests would not forget, held at the Knollwood Golf and Country Club. On the bride’s bouquet was a horseshoe inscripted with a “Here’s Luck” on it to remind her of her beloved grandmother. Read on after the images to learn more.
For Scottish brides it is tradition that the bride carry a horseshoe in her wedding bouquet for goodluck. My great-grandmother had a door knocker of a horseshoe inscripted “Here’s Luck” that she brought with her to Canada when she immigrated, and it was on her door until her passing. I have vivid memories of asking my Grandmother to pick me up so I could knock it when we visited, until I was tall enough to reach it on my own. I thought it was the perfect way to incorporate both the memory of my Granny and our culture into our wedding day.” “If our wedding had a theme I would say it was Old World Romance. My dress and veil were classic and romantic. The men were stylish in dark grey tuxedos with ink navy accents. The bridesmaids were gorgeous in their romantic and flowy – but still sexy ink navy gowns. The decor was exquisitely executed by Ryan Longo of RL Designs Inc. who created a luxurious and romantic feel in the venue with cream coloured hydrangeas, roses, floating candles and amazing centerpieces – describing it doesn’t do his work justice. The rolling hills of the golf course were the most incredible back drop.” “To give our wedding a touch of old world elegance we had a 1931 Ford Model B at the reception that was restored by my father in law. It was also the same colour as the bridesmaid’s dressed.
