Remember Shivonne and Kyle? We shared their #DenimOnDenim engagement session on the blog last summer. Well, these two lovebirds tied the knot at The Juniper Hotel in Banff in a super special, heartfelt family wedding, and Raf had the honour of being there to capture the memories.
Shivonne and Kyle have been together for about a decade and have two beautiful kiddos, who took centre stage as THE CUTEST flower girl and ringbearer. (Check out the pictures for hands down the best ever fringed flower girl boots.)
The Juniper in Banff has a lovely terrace with panoramic views across Banff and the ancient glacier-carved valley. The skies were a tad stormy, but it made for some stunning photos of Shivonne, Kyle and their bridal party. We <3 dramatic skies!
We also love seeing the details that our couples choose for their weddings. It’s all the little things that reveal their personalities and make their day so, well, them. Shivonne and Kyle’s day was filled with beautiful, rustic details. Just perfect for the setting on the side of Mt. Norquay, surrounded by trees and meadows and the mountains of the Bow Valley.
The guests were given teeny little bells adorned with lace to ring as Shivonne and Kyle were announced husband and wife. The place cards were the most fun, delicate, vintage-y teacups filled with succulents and moss.
Big, fun sunflowers were mixed in with bright blooms for the centrepieces. It made the room look so happy (just like Shivonne and Kyle)! The photos make me want to put on Pharrell Williams Happy song and dance around the living room with my puppers!!!
And we must talk about Shivonne’s floral crown. IT’S SO COOL! It’s intricate and pretty and so right for Shivonne’s lush bouncy mane of big ol’ wavy hair. (I have wavy hair too – let’s hear it for the waves, woop!)
The day ended with a dusting of snow on the mountain tops and a big rainbow breaking from the heavens. I think it was a sign that beautiful things are coming for this beautiful family.
So with love from our family to yours… Enjoy! x
