Jen and Selorm’s Stylish Calgary Lakehouse Wedding on Lake Bonavista
We met Jen and Selorm for a beer at Craft Beer Market to discuss their wedding plans. (One of our favourite spots in Calgary for good beer we might add!) It was pretty clear from the beginning that Jen and Selorm wouldn’t just plan any boring old wedding. They had some amazing ideas about how to make their wedding experience memorable for guests.
First of all, they decided on one of Calgary’s top and most sought after wedding venues; The Lakehouse on Lake Bonavista. Three words: Drop dead gorgeous. This restaurant is run by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts. They are known for world class cuisine in world class settings. Definitely a fantastic choice. Secondly, they hired Olivia from Love Crush Weddings for decor consultation and day-of co-ordination. It’s like Style me Pretty and Pinterest had a baby and they’ve posted the photos all over Instagram. That’s how we would describe her style. She’s sleek, modern and whimsically romantic. Those traits are at the forefront of her designs. She pulled the whole day off without a hitch.
As their wedding plans progressed, they threw around the idea of live music at their wedding reception. That’s something you don’t see often these days. Many couples opt for a DJ at their wedding reception. Not these two. They wanted something different. By the time our final meeting rolled around, they had booked Marquee Pianos. Guys! They booked duelling pianos for their wedding reception! We couldn’t believe our ears. SERIOUSLY. AMAZING. After having experienced it first hand, it as the entertainment highlight of our summer. Not kidding. The artists from Marquee Pianos were phenomenal. Oh, and they played EVERYTHING. AC/DC, check. Michael Jackson, check. No diggity? No doubt. This was so super cool.
A note about personal style
Can we also say how stylish these two looked? There’s no better way to inject a little personality into your wedding day than letting your style shine through in your wedding attire. Jen was a vision in her modern and classic gown from Beautiful Bride.
Enough about the bride (it’s always about the bride). Selorm’s suit was a show stopper. Can we just take a minute to appreciate that? A groom with impeccable stye sense? Yes please. A beautifully tailored suit from Harry Rosen with one of the most modern and unique patterns we have seen to date. This was an investment worth making.
Don’t they look amazing? These guys win, hands down, as most stylish couple Photographik’s 2016 season.
