Modern Romantic Styled Elopement in Downtown Calgary, Alberta

From the Creative Team

With the help of Lynn from Chemistry Events and Larissa with Stemistry Floral Design – yes, Chemistry & Stemistry… dream team, right 😉 – our goal was to represent our current global situation by featuring a realistic Elopement held right in the heart of Alberta. We reached out to The Garret venue in downtown Calgary, AB to ask if they would be kind enough to host this collaboration and they graciously accepted.

Our hearts go out to all of the brides and grooms that have been affected by the pandemic. Hitting our own roadblocks during the planning stages of this styled shoot proved challenging to navigate. Putting ourselves in our client’s shoes opened our eyes to their current obstacles. As travelling was no longer an option for many, we set out to create something that our hopeful love birds could get excited about envisioning for themselves! As a team, we came together to create this beautiful Downtown Styled Intimate Elopement.

Our vendor team came together wonderfully in this romantic Downtown location featuring hints of industrial decor balanced with an elegant muted colour palette. Our models are a real couple from Calgary who happened to fit our vision perfectly!
