fall french cafe wedding

From GingerSnap Photography – “A rich, cozy palate was the inspiration behind Jacqueline Rae Wedding’s autumnal styled shoot at the historic Vendome Café, tucked in the heart of Sunnyside, Calgary.

‘When I think cafe, the first thing that comes to mind is comfort. Warm, nourishing food, bold colors and romance,’ says Jacqueline. And romantic it was. The Vendome Café offers the old-world charm of a European bistro, complete with marble countertops, painted brick and vintage crown moldings.”

“The wedding table was bathed in wide florals, elevated on rustic butcher blocks and housed by a textured gold vase. The bouquet echoed the shape with a mix of jewel tones that popped when the bride put on a mustard/ochre pullover for warmth. Gold flatware, antique candleholders, blackberries and navy blue candles anchored the setting in deep, lavish tones. Classic crystal glassware softened the moodier pieces of the table beautifully.

Seated banquet style, the tablescape included old-fashioned plates and light serviettes, accompanied by bold menus and homemade mini pies for guest to enjoy.”

“Accented with gold pears and pies, a stunning two-tier pastel cake sat atop a traditional platter, draped with stunning florals and lush berries. The dessert table contrasted the playful chalk-board sign seamlessly.”

Our lovely bride and groom were effortlessly elegant, incorporating warm elements into their wardrobe, including a fall bohemian sweater and their adorable pup! The overall variety of texture and jewel tones created a comfortable, yet sophisticated atmosphere for these two on their special day.”
