♥ The Dino Martinis ♥
rom the moment they stepped on the stage with their red glitter suits it was obvious The Dino Martinis were there to have fun and bring the party.

Karen and Brad hired The Dino Martinis for their wedding and I don't think I've ever seen such an energetic dancefloor! They had everyone on the dancefloor and some guests even braved heading up on stage to sing a couple of songs with the band.

As I mentioned before Karen had asked if the band could learn a couple of polka songs to surprise her Dad. Not only did they learn the songs she requested but they actually got in touch with the musician who created Karen's favourite polka song and read a few words of well wishes from the musician to her. It was a very thoughtful surprise from the band.

♥ Lynn Fletcher Weddings ♥
had to share this transformation of a room by Lynn Fletcher Weddings from a wedding that I photographed this week-end at The Banff Springs. Trisha and Josh had a 16 foot ice bar that featured two martini ice luges at either end just outside the Cascade Ballroom in the conservatory.

It was amazing seeing the room transform as the outside light got darker and the lighting started to glow. It was a great use of the space. The guests LOVED the ice bar and the lounge seating and lighting encouraged people to hang out together.

Lynn is the master of transforming spaces. She understands the power of using lighting and some pipe and drape to create focal points. Beyond the design of the decor though Lynn's designs are always thoughtful in terms of how a wedding really uses a space and she creates spaces that encourage guests to move throughout. Lynn also understands that having the right team in place is critical in making sure she can make a couple's vision come to life on time. The team from Stardust Event Group did an incredible job with the lighting and I love that they understand the importance of colours with regards to photography. As a photographer I really value professional lighting.

I thought I'd share some photos of the space the night of the wedding and what it looked like the next day so you can get a better idea of the transformation. I can't wait to share more from this wedding!
Frozen Memories created a 16 foot ice bar with martini luges at either end. The middle piece featured a custom design that read "Gustav's Icebar" a nice nod to Trisha and Josh's dog Gus.

♥ Vintage wedding car Banff * 1952 silver Bentley ♥
A few pictures of Gerrard from Highland Executive Chauffeur.
Gerrard looking sharp in his uniform.
I love the Chauffeur caps imported from Britain.
The gorgeous peacock feather bouquet that Leo at Willow Haven created for me. I absolutely adored how the skirt was so luscious with peacock feathers. The details count and as Leo pointed out he's always disappointed when he sees a picture of a bride carrying her bouquet upside down as she's walking and the skirt of the bouquet has not been taken into account. I think I might be tempted to hold this bouquet upside down just to show off the skirt!
I love reds and blues together. Leo is always so creative and his work is finely crafted.
This is the Gerrard that I know best always with a big smile on his face and lots of laughs.
