I am so excited to share this wedding with everyone today. Not only was this wedding at one of my favourite wedding venues in Winnipeg – Bridges Gold Course – but it’s also the wedding of a very dear friend. Brittany and I met years ago and were also tag team wedding assistants with Divine Weddings when I first started wedding planning. So I was very honoured to help her and Gilbert celebrate their big day.
I love the trend of the First Look – Brittany and Gilbert decided to share their First Look moment with their wedding party and close family. I love everyone’s anticipation and excitement when Brittany walked out to see Gilbert for the first time. Awwww. They also had the cutest little people in their wedding party – just wait until you see the images of their ring bearer helping the two little flower girls down the aisle – cuteness overload!
The whole day turned out so great and I loved seeing my beautiful friend marry her best friend.
Do I have a treat for you today! For any brides out there that attended the Wonderful Wedding Show in Winnipeg this past January, all this gorgeousness might look a little familiar. We put together a beautiful styled shoot, along with a kick ass group of vendors for the show’s VIB Magazine. In case you missed it, you can see the feature here.
The entire styled shoot was designed around the color peridot – gorgeous shades of green that we used in the flowers, dresses, jewellery, cake, and stationery. The beautiful natural landscape of Cielo’s Garden was the perfect location for this elegant theme. We were so thrilled to showcase it at the Wonderful Wedding Show.
A huge shout out to all of these amazing vendors – we rocked it! Stay tuned to the blog to see the awesome video by 111 Films in the weeks to come.
Erika and Vince were married in a romantic ceremony in the concert ballroom of The Fort Garry Hotel. The romantic touches and pretty decor made this wedding day spectacular from beginning to end. Their love for one another was felt in every moment and every detail. Check out their feature here.
The brilliant folks at The Picture & The Poet captured their love perfectly and put it all together into this gem of a highlight video. Seeing Vince get emotional when talking about Erika will give you some serious lovey dovey feels!
Last August we got to help Courtney and Chris with their beautiful wedding at The Rustic Wedding Barn in Steinbach. To say it was one of the prettiest little rustic weddings we’ve ever seen would be a total understatement! A soft pink colour palette, gobs of greenery and a red hip roof barn – it was rustic perfection.
It’s always a pleasure planning weddings and being a part of bringing couples together in marriage – you can’t get much better than that! Working with Courtney and Chris was extra special – not only are they a gorgeous couple that is deeply in love, their adorable son was also a part of the celebration. It was so awesome watching them celebrate their little family with their guests.
Check out the images from this gorgeous wedding and keep your eyes out for their wedding highlight video coming to the blog in the next few weeks!
Who wants to see something super pretty? Erika and Vince’s wedding at The Fort Garry Hotel was full of the most elegant details and romantic touches. Not only was this wedding beautiful, but the bride and groom are so crazy in love, and that’s always a bonus. 🙂
From the romantic flowers and candlelight to the personal touches like the paddles for guest books and pine tree wedding favors, every inch of this wedding reflected Erika and Vince’s love and personal style. Just wait until you see the gorgeous wedding ceremony – so romantic and pretty!
Best of all, Erika and Vince and their families were so awesome to work with. My girls and I really enjoyed helping them celebrate their love day!
Jennifer and Mike’s wedding at Cielo’s Garden last September was an incredible day full of love, family, and celebration. From the very start of the day to the very last dance of the night, every cherished moment was captured perfectly by our friends at 111 Films.
A meaningful wedding ceremony, a gorgeous tent reception, and a beer pong kissing game – what more could you possibly ask for in a wedding day! Check out their wedding feature here to see the stunning images from this outdoor vintage wedding day and watch their wedding highlight video below. It’s bursting with love and happiness 🙂
A few times a year, we get to help the folks at Crown Royal in Gimli plan their media tours. As you can imagine, it’s super fun! Planning corporate events are such a fun challenge for me and with a different theme and venue for each of these events, it’s never the same event twice. It’s fun designing new concepts for them and coming up with unique ideas to enhance and show off their brand.
Their last event was in October – a two day extravaganza filled with whisky tastings, crafted specialty cocktail demos, a tour of the distillery, a helicopter tour of the town of Gimli, an outdoor tent dinner with hands-on ice sculpting and a bonfire, and an eclectic dinner at Sous Sol in Winnipeg.
I always enjoy working with this amazing Manitoba company and the awesome vendors that make it all happen.
There is nothing better than an outdoor wedding on a beautiful summer day. Samara and Darrin’s stunning wedding in Plum Coulee, Manitoba had everything an awesome outdoor wedding should have – a stunning couple exchanging vows in a beautiful outdoor ceremony, amazing outdoor wedding photos in grassy prairie fields, and a gorgeous wedding tent with a rocking reception.
Samara and Darrin are SO IN LOVE, which can clearly be seen in their wedding highlight video by Prairie Film Co. They brilliantly captured all the laughter, love and happy tears that surrounded the day. I am so happy for these two and their little boy.
Check out their wedding feature here to see all of the amazing images from their wedding day.
In the meantime, get some tissues ready because this wedding video is going to give you all the ‘super in love, can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you’ kind of feels.
2017 was a great year for us at Divine Weddings. We worked with so many fabulous clients at so many amazing venues across Manitoba. But there is one wedding that stands out as my favorite – my sister’s wedding. I had the honour of not only helping my sister with the planning of her wedding but was lucky to be a bridesmaid as well. My wonderful team stepped in for the day to coordinate every detail, and it was amazing.
It was so much fun working with some of my favorite vendors in the industry – thank you so much for your hard work and creative brilliance in making this day as amazing as it was, and for making my sister so happy.
Cielo’s Garden is one of my favorite venues – a beautiful gem of a venue with a clear top tent, stone chapel, and the most hardworking owners that are so lovely to work with. A heavy rainstorm came through (thankfully once all the guests were inside the tent) and the owners were on site, happy to help and to make sure everything was ok.
Everything came together perfectly, and it’s so wonderful looking back at all the photos and remembering the memories our family created that day.
Stay tuned for their wedding video coming to the blog in the next few weeks!
Last summer, on Canada Day long weekend, we ventured up to Clear Lake in Riding Mountain National Park for a fun celebration of love and family. Amber and Matt tied the knot in a lovely outdoor ceremony, had a Canada Day afternoon party for their guests complete with lawn games, and then celebrated with a reception at Danceland – a gorgeous cabin-like venue with wooden beams and rustic charm.
