Inspiration to Reality: Anita + Ben

Anita + Ben’s wedding design blended a romantic colour palette with modern geometric shapes. Beginning with their invitations, we worked with Pinkpolka to develop patterns that had an edgy, unique look while using materials and colours that were timeless and romantic. This inspired us to tie the geometric shapes into their ceremony and head table backdrops, a custom DJ booth, as well as the wedding cake.

Inspiration to Reality: Tess + James

Tess + James’ vision for their Lake Louise destination wedding was an intimate celebration full of warmth and romance. With nods of Tuscan influence, an abundance of lush, organic florals in tones of blush, pink, peach and crimson covered the tables, while gold candelabras and candlesticks added formality and glamour to the elegant Victoria Ballroom.

Inspiration to Reality: Julie + Kyle

A lot goes into the wedding design process at JBW. We begin by determining a bride and groom’s wedding style – the look they envision, the atmosphere they want their event to evoke, the level of formality. We then create visual inspiration boards and detailed design plans. Once we’re all on the same page, we execute, securing rental and décor items, collaborating with a florist to design centrepieces and bouquets, and working with a stationer to create the couple’s invitations and stationery to perfectly reflect their wedding style.

We’re excited to share some of our 2014 weddings along with the design boards behind them so you can get a glimpse at how we take inspiration and make it reality!

Julie + Kyle wanted their rustic, summer wedding to reflect her carefree spirit and Kyle’s love of the outdoors. We designed the soirée around a soft, muted palette of creams and taupes with whimsical touches of mint and peach. Woodland accents including antlers and birch stumps brought the outdoors in to the Hangar at Fort Edmonton Park.

This delightful Edmonton wedding was also recently published in Blush Magazine (available for purchase online or at Chapters / Indigo)!

Nicole + Blake’s Banff Springs Hotel wedding was designed to enhance the dramatic elegance of the venue with a non-traditional colour palette to reflect their unique personal styles. Mixed metallics and laser-cut stationery details hinted at the medieval characteristics of the hotel, while lush brightly coloured florals added romance and femininity.

Bouquet Inspiration: Organic

The  last of our bouquet inspiration series features gorgeous organic bouquets perfect for the bride who desires a rustic or outdoorsy element to her wedding day style.

Organic bouquets are full of texture and mixed elements. Think beyond floral – succulents, cotton, berries, scabiosa pods and fiddleheads add so much dimension and movement. Earthy tones give the bouquet a rustic feel, while soft pastels convey whimsy and romance.

Bouquet Inspiration: Romantic

So far we’ve looked at Classic White Bouquets and Bright + Bold Bouquets. Today it’s all about romance!

Lush peonies, full-blown roses and soft pastel colours exude luxury and romance in these JBW bridal bouquets. These talented florists created a beautiful balance between feminine florals and delicate hints of greenery or dusty miller to add texture. To finish your romantic bouquet, add flowing ribbons, brooches or satin and lace handles.

Bouquet Inspiration: Bright + Bold

Part 2 of our bouquet inspiration series – we’re featuring bright and bold bouquets full of colour! Bold bouquets really pop against a white or cream wedding dress.

Keep it all one colour for a more classic look, or play with various shades of a colour for more dimension and texture. To make an even bigger statement, pair complementary colours such as fuchsia and kelly green or violet and tangerine.

Here’s a collection of JBW brides who have chosen to go with bright and bold bouquets on their wedding day!
