Garden Tea Wedding Inspiration

I’ll give you a moment to get your parasol because today’s inspiration shoot is so charming, graceful, elegant, light, enchanting – it’s raining pretty over here today! Photographed by Calgary wedding photographer Christy D. Swanberg’s Photography at  Spruce Meadows, the styling of this shoot by CNC Event Design is a Springtime delight.

Featuring two gowns from Blush and Raven, Calgary’s artistically styled, couture bridal boutique, each gown has a vintage delicacy that is soft yet bold, gowns with classic style with modern twists. The short cropped hair with rustled curls makes this bridal style playful and light-hearted.

The decor was inspired by a bridal tea, and Spruce Meadows makes for the perfect garden setting. With grounds that are impeccably maintained throughout the year, this wedding venue is a flower lovers dream. The styling of this shoot embraces pastels with blushes, teals and butter yellows inspired by vintage china patterns found throughout the shoot. Pairing these delicate teacups with classic rustic pieces like barn wood tables and wood chairs gives the perfect juxtaposition to let the beauty of each element shine. With desserts fromYvonne’s Delightful Cakes designed to light your sweet tooth ablaze, A stunning shoot from a host of Calgary wedding vendors, meet the entire Creative Team after the jump!
