Have you ever attended a surprise wedding? Well this couple opted for an untraditional route and decided plan a complete surprise for their family and friends! Their guests unknowingly arrived at Ridge Meadows Estate, thinking it was their engagement party, and were shocked to realize it was actually the couple’s wedding instead!
Besides that surprise element, this wedding also features a stunning floral arch from Meadow & Vine, romantic styling, and mix n match bridesmaids attire in the perfect tones for fall! Scroll down to see so many beautiful and special moments throughout the day, all captured by Calgary photographer Nora Hanako.
From the Photographer:
Such an adorably sweet first look moment!
We love this combination of mix and match midi-length bridesmaids dresses! You can find more fall bridesmaid dress inspiration here.
