Filled with some seriously fun color combinations and a heady dose of glamorous gold, Raquel and Darren’s wedding, photographed beautifully by Amy Steed Photography, channels the modern fun of a Kate Spade wedding theme in the most perfect way!
From Amy Steed Photography – “Raquel and Darren’s gorgeous summer wedding came together in just a few months and was a labor of love for both of their families. Every detail was well thought out and perfectly executed by the bride, her mother and her sisters. Her sister Hilary made the cake, another did her hair and makeup and her father even made the chandelier!
The ceremony was a private religious ceremony in the Cardston, Alberta temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, followed by a dinner reception with the bride and groom’s many family members and friends.
Raquel wanted a modern, classy wedding and her choice of a black and white color scheme with accents of fuchsia and peach was the perfect palette for just that. The accents of gold were a touch of class and the gold sequins backdrop was a definite stunner. Another personal touch included the bride and groom’s beach cruisers on display, as riding bikes is one of their favorite hobbies. Raquel’s vision for flowers was something colorful, yet romantic and modern and Jennifer Hendry’s use of garden roses and berries were the perfect touch to create a stunning and unique bouquet.
The search for the right wedding dress ended at The Bride’s Shop in Salt Lake City. It was a simple taffeta trumpet style dress, which the bride’s mother added a beaded belt to for some additional glam.
The night ended with a family friendly dance for the thirty-something nieces and nephews of the bride and groom, which included Virginia Reel – a family tradition of Darren’s.”
