This Brontë Bride editorial shoot is brimming with talented Albertan vendors who came together to produce a stunning terracotta-toned shoot with gorgeous bridal gowns, a Moroccan meets Boho-vintage vibe, and a venue that’s to die for!

Which bridal look would you pick?

We’re obsessed with these clay earrings from Tidy Clutterings. Give us a pair in every colour!
Ralph Klein Park is a conservation area, located just East of Calgary Alberta, filled with natural wetlands and wildlife.
We love the clear juxtaposition of the modern cement building paired with the surrounding natural wildlife area. It’s a stunning venue placed in a picturesque landscape. If you’re looking for a venue that is modern, but still connected to nature, and that has both indoor and outdoor spaces available for events, Ralph Klein Park is probably the perfect venue for you.
From the Florist:
“For this shoot I wanted to keep the flowers similar and complimentary to the dry, grassy Alberta environment. My main goal was to keep everything light, airy, and organic. The ingredients that I used, and inspired me, were Protea, Willow Branches, dried Eucalyptus, dried Yarrow, foraged grasses, and then a pop of coral Naranga roses.”
-Bailey from Faint Floral
Kristyn Harder is a master of both digital and film photography, and she did an incredible job capturing the beauty and colour of this shoot on both.
rooftop ceremony: rustic meets wild
We love this rustic triangle arch from Rare Vintage Rentals, paired with the wild florals of Faint Floral, and the beautiful wooden benches from Rustic Rentals by JL. The combination makes for a stunning ceremony setup!
Not to mention that rooftop view overlooking the wetlands doesn’t hurt…
Why have just one gorgeous bridal gown when you can have two?!
We love collaborating with Blush & Raven, a high-end bridal boutique in Calgary who’s line-up of gowns and designers are always chic, elegant, and expertly curated.
This stunning invitation suite from Plush Invites.
The dreamy tones, modern type, and terracotta accents put us in a state of absolute adoration.
This clay wall hanging, along with all the place card tiles you saw on the tablescape, were handmade from Tinsel & Thrift!
outdoor lounge: scenic & SERENE
The vendors for this styled shoot included a lineup of amazing local businesses and professionals which we want to make available to you as well! We love supporting local! So please see our credit list at the end of this post for the details on each vendor!
Prosecco Cart? Yes please!! We love this adorable mobile bar and all the bubbles that come with it!
How incredible is this cake!?
We bet you’re thinking those flowers are real… but guess what, they’re not!
Whippt Catering created those flowers out of sugar. If you’re not sure whether baking is an art, then think again. Keep scrolling for further proof.
