Moody Winnipeg Wedding Inspiration with Regal Undertones

Old World Elegance Wedding Photography & Styling Inspiration

The Millennium Centre is in the heart of the Exchange District in downtown Winnipeg, Canada and one of the most popular wedding venues.

The building is primarily abandoned today, and has the feeling of forgotten grandeur. Peeling plaster has taken on the appearance of beautifully marbled walls, and a forgotten fireplace served as a wonderful backdrop for our table. This aging beauty set the tone for our moody and upscale shoot.

Winnipeg Wedding Photographer veil Boudoir

It was important for us to have the photos illuminate the sensual confidence of our bride, as well as her glowing gracefulness. The dress by Anna Lang was chosen for its flow and movement as much as for the rich earth tones.

You don’t have to be in white on your wedding day – you just have to select a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident.

We layered the table with classic pieces, adding dark, edgy tones for a modern touch. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Calligraphy is such a beautiful way to add romance to your table, and can be used for table numbers, escort cards, or menus. Here we used it to add just the perfect pop of gold.

The elegantly marbled cake design shows that your wedding cake doesn’t need to be overly elaborate to make a huge impact.

The rich color palette was completed with the touches of antique oranges and pinks against the deep purples of the flowers.

The tones selected make this palette perfect for all seasons. With Ultra Violet being the Pantone color of the year, purple tones are everywhere, so we were very happy to be able to share how easily it can be incorporated into your wedding planning.

Nikita + Andrew's stunning wedding at the Millennium Centre, Winnipeg

I am happy to feature Nikita and Andrew's wedding today.  I really got to know this couple as I documented their rehearsal as well. They used their Connection Session for this coverage - as Andrew took Nikita to Paris to propose... Yes - that true.

He organized a photographer to capture the proposal as well - and although the lead up to the question being asked was not all that smooth, it all fell into place when she said yes.

Look out for the wonderful details at their reception.

To add to this story, their ceremony was planned to be outdoors at the forks, overlooking the river. We all woke up to a forecast for rain right around the time ceremony was scheduled.  And although we all hoped it would not be - the clouds opened up and sent guests running for cover the minute Nikita was to walk down the aisle.  Nightmare you might think - maybe for 1 minute it was, but everyone laughed it off, moved on to the Millennium Centre and enjoyed a wonderful ceremony indoors.  It all worked out and they have a crazy story to tell.

Here are a few of my favourite frames.

I am happy to share highlights from Ben and Terilee's wedding today.

Ben and Terilee booked us online and although I only really met them the week of the wedding, it was a very relaxed and easy going day. Like friends hanging out.  Here are a couple of my favourites from their day.

Janelle + Brent's Winnipeg Wedding at The Millennium Centre

Janelle + Brent's Winnipeg Wedding at The Millennium Centre

It's strange to blog my last wedding for 2013.  This year has come and gone too quick!

I had Janelle and Brent over for their screening last night. It was great to see them again and relive some highlights from their wedding day.  It's also so nice to hear feedback from my couples about the little things that stood out for them on their day - one thing always a constant - that the day was over in the blink of an eye...
