What exactly makes something romantic and what makes some glam... While they might seem like contrasting thoughts, the genius that is wedding photographer Jen Huang along with the breathtaking styling of One True Love Vintage eloquently put on a clinic of how beautiful a glam bride can be with soft romantic undertones. To make a something glam, there is a need for refinement & sophistication. To be romantic, there is a need for softness in the likes of color & texture. Details in this glam bridal that sensationally bring together the whole are touches like the swept up textured locks into a loosely pinned updo hair style & gorgeous orange kissed makeup with just the right hand by Melissa Hoffmann . The Liancarlo wedding dress from Kinsley James Bridal Boutique exudes the perfect balance of structured lace bodice coupled with a free flowing romantic tulle trumpet skirt. The vibrant florals from Natalie Bowen strike the perfect balance between bold & detailed while the petit gâteau from Honeycomb Events are dialed up posh & lovely. Its all about balance... a touch of structure meets a a moment of letting go.

One of my more favorite parts to the whole summer loving experience is definitely the carnival/amusement park experience. Food, rides, games & all the bright vibrant lights as the sun goes down, the whimsical air gets even the biggest of cynic caught up! Along with all the fun, these playful hot spots are the perfect environment for summer love or even better, the kind of love that lasts. This is exactly what Jennifer & Jason soon realized after joining a group of friends at the Calgary Stampede Rodeo. Before they knew it, Jennifer & Jason not only hit it off but fell deep in love! Heading back to the place that love struck was a natural fit for Jennifer & Jason's amusement park engagement session with Alberta wedding photographer Paisley Photography. With a country air, the pair revisited the place their love blossomed while playfully enjoying the world around them & they're hard to miss sweetness on one another. Their amusement park engagement session is tender & lighthearted, making me crave these warm yummy summer months to come!

They say if you can make it here, then you can make it anywhere and that's just what the duo at Lakum are striving to crush. With a somewhat newly launched line, Sathya & Heather recently debuted the follow up to their inaugural collection, showcasing their Spring 2016 Bridal Collection. While the new wedding dress collection is a stark departure from their hardware favoring debut line (we're hoping some of those brilliant hardware pieces find their way back for the fall!) the flirty feminine undertone that is emerging as the backbone of Lakum is on point. The new collection shows a softer side, toying with body draped silhouettes which offer detail points that show off real personality. Be it large floral lace work patterns, sultry open backs or hovering ball gowns, Lakum's latest collection achieves the most delicious feminine balance between designer eye & wearable, something every bride should covet. Perhaps a wedding gown isn't really your thing... don't worry my dears, the Lakum ladies have got you! Just when you thought your were dead set on a wedding dress...
