Soft yellow mixed with black and white damask, set against the backdrop of a charming rustic lakefront venue, was the absolute perfect pallet for this eclectic vintage inspired wedding at FortWhyte Alive, an environmental preserve, in gorgeous Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Thank you so very much to the amazingly creative and talented Tracy and her equally as delightful groom, Jay, for sharing their special day with us.
The bride was beautifully adorned in an authentic 1960’s vintage mermaid cut damask wedding gown and vintage-jeweled birdcage veil. Her shoes, by Sam and Libby, complemented her Swarovski accessories and unbelievable crystal belt. The groom wore a dapper pinstriped suit from Moore’s and a bit of Swarovski bling himself. SWOON!
Fabulous food served in an easy and elegant environment was the experience the couple wanted for their 98 guests. Guests we served an amazing three course meal inspired by local and organic Manitoban ingredients and were invited to enjoy a refill of their Sweet tea lemonade before hitting the dance floor to the bride and groom’s own personal play list. Special touches that made this wedding really pop against the fresh, green backdrop of the lakefront venue included; hand selected vintage vases and milk glass, birds and birdcages, steel colored damask table runners against white linens, yellow daisies and white zinnias, and fresh lemons and lemonade. The best part – many of these lovely details were DIY!! This bride knows style and we LOVE it!
House-farmed honey jars stacked in lemon crates and tagged with a personal note of thanks from Tracy and Jay were given as a special wedding favor to their guests.
