Radisson Hotel Wedding Sneak Peek

Kelly and Cole were married at the Radisson Hotel last month, and I really can’t say enough about how awesome it was to work with these two amazing people!

We work so hard to make every couple’s wedding day as spectacular as possible, and when they are over the moon happy and go out of their way to send us a thank-you message, it makes all of the hard work worth it.

“I need to text you! Firstly, I owe my life to you. Thank you so much. Today is my first day back to work and the whole office is raving about the day. You made it perfect for us. Thank you so much for everything. And for everything you did that I don’t even know about!” ~Kelly

Check out a sneak peek of this amazing day by visiting the blog post from their fab photographer Michael Scorr Photography.

Full post of photos coming to the blog soon!

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Ashgrove Acres Wedding – Jess & Eric

We always love working with Ashgrove Acres – such a beautiful country wedding venue. So we were thrilled when Jess and Eric chose it to tie the knot.

Everything about this wedding was F-U-N. From the bride’s green sneakers to the lawn games at cocktail hour, Jess and Eric wanted to have a day that truly reflected their style and showed their guests a great time – mission accomplished I’d say!

I adored the colour palette that Jess chose. Deep green, black and white with natural touches. The natural green grounds of Ashgrove Acres provided the perfect backdrop! It was really the perfect venue for this awesome couple.

Congrats to Jess and Eric and big thanks to all the vendors that made it such an amazing day for them both.

Wedding at The Forks – Rebecca and Sean

I love weddings at The Forks – the Oodena Circle is such a unique location for a wedding ceremony, and Inn at the Forks is a top notch wedding venue. With both locations being so close to one another, it’s the perfect one-stop local for a beautiful Winnipeg wedding.

I had the amazing pleasure of working with Rebecca and Sean to bring together their wedding at The Forks this summer. Not only are they super nice people, but they are so darn cute together! I was so happy to be a part of such an amazing day.

We also got to work with Peggy from Winnipeg Wedding Photographers Collective, which is always fun. Check out her amazing images below!

Wedding Venue Spotlight – Bridges Golf Course

Today on the blog I want to spotlight one of my favourite wedding venues, Bridges Golf Course.

This gem of a venue is located about half an hour west of Winnipeg, nestled in the community of Starbuck. With gorgeous sprawling grounds, a timber frame reception space, and the ideal location for an outdoor wedding ceremony, Bridges Golf Course has everything you need for your beautiful wedding day.

I am always impressed with their exceptional service, and how great it is working with everyone over at Bridges. They are always so helpful and make coordinating the wedding day a breeze!

Bridges has it all, including a gorgeous green space designed specifically for wedding ceremonies. It’s the perfect spot for you to say I Do in the outdoors, complete with a stone stage and a backdrop of towering trees.

Willow Grove Orchard Wedding – Kayleigh & Brandon

We had such an amazing summer here at Divine Weddings – so many awesome weddings and THE BEST clients!

Kayleigh and Brandon were no exception. These two lovebirds tied the knot back in July at Willow Grove Orchard in Argyle, Manitoba. The cutest little rustic piece of wedding goodness you have ever seen! Every inch of this space was perfect for Kayleigh and Brandon’s country wedding – from the rustic barn to the outdoor bar area – it’s filled with quaint country charm. Megan Steen Photography captured all the beautiful details perfectly!

These two are so in love – it was such a pleasure working with them to create this amazing day for them and their young son.

Congrats Kayleigh and Brandon, and big thanks to the vendors for making this day so freakin’ awesome!

Camp Manitou Wedding – Stephanie and Andrew

Camp Manitou is a hidden gem in Winnipeg. Nestled in the trees alongside the Assiniboine River – the 28 acres of dreamy forest area was the perfect spot for Stephanie and Andrew to say I do!

And when I say dreamy, I mean DREAMY! The gorgeous outdoor ceremony was tucked away in the forest like something in a movie. Take a look for yourself – the images by Izabela Rachwal captured the pure magic of this amazing location.

The entire day was such a celebration and we were so happy to be a part of it. Congrats Stephanie and Andrew!

Fave Outdoor Winnipeg Wedding Photo Locations

While planning your wedding, you will eventually have to decide where to take your wedding photos. In a previous post, we talked about our favourite indoor wedding photo locations in Winnipeg – you can read it here. Today I am sharing my favourite outdoor wedding photo locations.

Winnipeg has so many beautiful outdoor spaces to take your wedding photos – here are my faves!

Stephen Juba Park

My absolute fave, Stephen Juba Park on the Waterfront right next to the Exchange District is the perfect spot for outdoor wedding photos in Winnipeg. The perfect spot for your first look photos and enough space to bring the entire wedding party, it’s green space makes it a gorgeous stop on your wedding photo list. Best of all…it’s free!

Assiniboine Park

An iconic Winnipeg wedding photo location, Assiniboine Park has been a favourite for couples and wedding photographers for years! The floral gardens, sculpture garden, and Pavillion offer beautiful green space and variety for your outdoor wedding photos. Time slots for wedding photos have to be booked by contacting the park events office.

Millennium Library Fountain

Not a popular choice, but a fun stop if you are already downtown. Some nice green backdrop space and a misty fountain to cool you off if you are getting married on a hot summer day.

St. Vital Park

My ultimate fave for outdoor fall wedding photos. St. Vital Park, with tons of green space and beautiful ponds is an excellent choice for your outdoor wedding photos. The colours are absolutely stunning in the fall months!

St. Boniface Cathedral Basilica

Regal and elegant, the basilica at the St. Boniface Cathedral has the best of both worlds. Gorgeous green space with elegant stone walls and arches. Spots must be booked by contacting the church office.

The Exchange District

You can’t get married downtown without taking a spin through the Exchange District for some wedding photos. The rich character of the old buildings and industrial spaces creates a fun backdrop your wedding images. And the best part, take a break at the Kings Head Pub!

Tips for Beating The Heat on Your Wedding Day

The 2018 wedding season here in Manitoba has been one for the record books. Heat wave after heat wave has had me sweating through many weddings this summer. Even though you can’t avoid the heat completely on a wedding day, there are a few things you can do to stay cool and comfortable.

Here are my stay cool wedding tips for our hot hot hot Winnipeg summers.

Avoid the heat as much as possible.

The key to beating the heat on your wedding day is to avoid it as much as possible in the first place. Choose a venue for your ceremony and reception that are indoors and airconditioned. If you are having a tented wedding reception, ask the tent company about portable air conditioners and fans. They can help take the edge off of a hot day. When it comes to your wedding photos, have an indoor option booked like a studio or historic building to give everyone a break from the heat.

Drink tons of water.

Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate. I can’t say this enough. You have to stay hydrated on these sweltering days (and no, champagne and beer are not the same, but nice try lol). Make sure to have plenty of water available for everyone in the wedding party. You don’t want anyone becoming dehydrated – headaches and dizziness are not welcome on a wedding day – not fun!

Choose the right clothing.

It’s impossible to avoid the heat entirely, but there are ways to make yourself more comfortable. Choose a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses that are light and expose your shoulders and arms. Going sans suit jackets for the groom and groomsmen will also make a huge difference for the guys. No one wants to wear a jacket in this heat! Another tip is to have the guys get two shirts – this way if they sweat through their shirt they can change into a fresh one for the reception.

Keep your guests comfortable.

Your guest’s comfort should be your number one priority on your wedding day – especially if your wedding day lands in the middle of a heat wave. Providing hand fans, cool beverages, and keeping anything outdoors short and sweet will ensure your guests don’t melt in the hot sun.

Sweat-proof your makeup.

Your make-up artist can sweatproof your makeup to ensure you and your girls stay fresh the entire day. Using a primer before application and applying facial mist throughout the day will keep your makeup from disappearing in heat and humidity. Ask your makeup artist for samples so that you can apply touchups throughout the day as needed.

Crown Royal Event Sneak Peek

We are very fortunate here at Divine Weddings to be able to plan Crown Royal’s bi-annual media tours. Twice a year, the folks at Crown Royal plan a two day extravaganza to wow media professionals and to immerse them in the full Crown Royal experience.

Every event includes a tour of the Crown Royal distillery in Gimli, Manitoba, followed by a dinner complete with craft cocktails. This year the event took place at Gimli Harbour – a beautiful summer evening beside the lake, complete with a bonfire and s’mores.

Day two had the guests enjoying dinner and drinks at Cibo Waterfront Cafe – such an amazing space for corporate events!

Pro images by BLF Studios are on their way but in the meantime, these sneak peeks from my iPhone will have to do 🙂

Fave Indoor Winnipeg Wedding Photo Locations

There are so many great spots here in Winnipeg for wedding photos. Of course, you’ll want to have lots of photos in the beautiful outdoors, but you should always have a plan B in case of rain. It’s also nice to book an indoor location to get you and your wedding party out of the heat for a bit to chill out!

Here are our favourite indoor wedding photo locations in Winnipeg.

Aspire Studios

This is a must-have when it comes to indoor wedding locations in the city. Each studio has a different style and theme, plus they have the coolest retro sofas!

Our Favourite Wedding Sweet Tables

We’ve seen plenty of sweet tables over the years here at Divine Weddings. There are so many talented bakeries in Winnipeg, and we are lucky enough to have sampled all of their sweets (tough job, but someone’s gotta do it).

I sifted through all of our wedding photos to find our favourite sweet tables. You can definitely add some personality to your sweet table and design something that fits the style and theme of your wedding. Have fun with it and get creative! I know designing a sweet table is one of my favourite parts of the design process. And the tastings are pretty fun too 🙂

This first one is from a wedding at Bridges Golf Course. The bride wanted something vintage with a garden feel to fit the theme of her wedding. She found this antique dresser and refinished it with a chalkboard instead of the mirror. Amazing DIY!

This next one was super fun! A Canada Day wedding at Danceland in Clearlake – a rustic wedding cake and Canadiana inspired maple leaf, polar bear, and loon sugar cookies! So awesome!

winnipeg bakery

Pretty and vintage. This couple got married at The Gates on Roblin and wanted a very vintage reception. The sweet table mimicked the entire design, including a vintage desk, teacups and lace (and High Tea Bakery’s delicious imperial cookies).

You can’t have a wedding at the Rustic Wedding Barn in Steinbach and have an ordinary sweet table! This multi-tiered wooden cake stand was perfect for this barn wedding! And the single tier cake with the love birds is pretty cute too.

Elegant and chic – this couple tied in their sweet table perfectly for their wedding at The Fort Garry Hotel. Bold colours of red, black and white looked so chic when it was all brought together. And did I mention they had cheesecakes on a stick? #sweettablegoals

This sweet table will probably go down as one of my all time faves! Not only was it the perfect touch to this outdoor tent wedding in Lake of the Woods, Ontario, but it brought together candy and sweets with the perfect touch of boho. Sa-weet!

A fortieth wedding anniversary is something to celebrate! I love the vintage touches and the gold and mint colour palette!

Another gorgeous wedding at Bridges Golf Course! This groom was quite the outdoorsman, so a rustic wooden cake stand for their wedding cake and cupcakes was the perfect touch.
