Dana and Darrell’s Vintage Sophisticate Wedding at Hotel Le Germain, Calgary

Dana and Darrell were married last year at Hotel Arts in downtown Calgary. I was so excited to see it featured in Calgary Bridal Guide!!!

The ceremony was simple and beautiful, and it was such a joy to watch two amazing people join together.

We began our day at Dana’s childhood home. Dana incorporated vintage elements, like her beautiful mirror, and tied them together with modern items, like her bright red Stuart Weitzman shoes. It was only appropriate, as the couples’ colors were red and black, to have an amazingly detailed black sash on Dana’s gorgeous bridal gown.

Dana was joined by Darrell for their first look and family photographs amongst Dana’s mother’s stunning display of flowers.

Off to the farm! Dana led us to her family’s gorgeous, secluded farm, complete with peeling red paint, towering grain buildings, and long wispy grass.. We used the barn as our backdrop for photos of the wedding party. Darrell couldn’t stop looking at Dana the entire time. It was obvious he was so in love with his bride-to-be.

We turned the corner to go to a different part of the farm, and ran straight into a small herd of donkeys! Dana warned everyone not to get too close; apparently they kick! Needless to say, we got out of there pretty quickly!

Everyone headed back to Hotel St Germain for the ceremony. Very cool venue.  Fabulous modern art along with the vintage feel, made a wonderful combination. The ceremony was sweet and romantic, and Dana and Darrell looked so happy.

The reception was also held at hotel St. Germain. Lots of personal touches here: Darrell made the table numbers, the couple made the cake toppers (perfect replicas of themselves), super cute! The bright centerpieces featuring leafy greens and soft white flowers contrasted perfectly with the red and black linens and personalized m&m favors.  The night was so fun with fabulous speaches, and a hola hoop contest that ‘got the bride and groom to kiss’.  Favorite moment of the night…When Darrell wanted to kiss Dana, he got up and swung the hula hoop a few times himself!!!!

Thank you to this beautiful couple!
