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.

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.

2019 Wonderful Wedding Show | Winnipeg

2019 Wonderful Wedding Show

We are thankful that the extreme cold has passed, but even more thankful for the time we received from so many newly engaged couples at the 2019 Wonderful Wedding Show in Winnipeg this past weekend.

It is always such a whirlwind week for us, but the meaningful conversations we had and the genuine love for our work, makes it worthwhile and rewarding. It was our 8th year as a Winnipeg Wedding Photographer exhibiting at the show. That is still sinking in for us….

These are a few of the photos that received a lot of attention at the show. Please remember our Wedding Show Promotion will be ending on the last day of January. We look forward to hearing from you and securing your date, so we can create some stunning photos together.

Whitetail Meadow | A Winnipeg Wedding Venue Review

Whitetail Meadow Wedding Venue

I had the great privilege of photographing a couple of weddings at the new, Whitetail Meadow Wedding Venue, just outside of Winnipeg.

As a full time, professional photographer for the last 10 years, it is always exciting when new venues open their doors, especially when it brings something new to the wedding venue scene.

From the Whitetail Meadow Website

“Several years ago, Dave had a vision for a salvaged 80-year-old hip-roof barn and a stunning riverside acreage.  With the help and support of his wife Lori, that vision is now a reality.  Whitetail Meadow. 

Dave and Lori worked tirelessly to restore the building and beautify the grounds to make it a one-of-a-kind wedding and events venue nestled in the Red River valley. “

It is a rustic yet modern wedding and events building.  Original barnwood elements and rough-cut timbers juxtapose the clean, bright walls and ceilings and state-of-the art amenities for a perfect marriage of old and new.

Whitetail Meadow Venue Features:

- Seating for 300-320 guests (Depending on table configuration)
- Fully-Equipped catering kitchen
- Bar area with coolers & ice machine
- Projectors and P.A. Equipment

Centre dance floor where couples can be surrounded by family and friends during their first dance.

I was really impressed by a lot of things, starting with the friendly, kind and super helpful owner, Dave, that greeted me on arrival and had all the time in the world to show me around.

The overall impression of the venue was one of country luxury, with an intimate charm. Perfect for small gatherings or larger parties.

The outdoor ceremony location (there are a few options) was also amazing. On the one side you had the stunning restored Barn and on the other a tranquil pond with trees swaying in the breeze. One felt surrounded by nature, without having to walk deep into the woods.

I also loved that the bride has a little cabin, on the property, where she can do all her getting ready and even stay over for the night before or the night of the wedding. No stress of running from place to place the morning of the wedding.

As a photographer, there is also no shortage of backdrops and interesting elements to incorporate in the photos. We did not even have to leave the venue to create amazing Bride and Groom photos. I also did the formal family photos, close to the trees with the beautiful pond in the foreground.

Here are a few photos to show you how I experienced this amazing venue, and if you were still looking for a wedding venue in and around Winnipeg - I would highly recommend Whitetail Meadow!

Qualico Family Centre Wedding | Lesya + Kellen

Qualico Family Centre Wedding

One of our favourite times of the year is when we get to do a Qualico Family Centre wedding in Winnipeg IN THE WINTER!

Lesya and Kellen had an amazing wedding with a full traditional wedding ceremony and a very elegant reception with close family and friends. It was a cold day, make no mistake, but that all seemed to fade to to the background with the laughter, emotion and general and genuine feel good vibes.

These are a few of my favourite moments and one photo in particular means a lot to me as a documentarian on people's lives and stories. It's the photo of Lesya holding an original print from her parent's wedding day.

As we learn, as we grow and we win and as we lose - the moments change and the things that remind us of those moments change and one thing that is for sure, is that a photo of a precious moment only grows in value over time.

It was a great honour for Leah and myself to be invited to capture these moments for Lesya and Kellen and can only wish them well and many happy and fond memories as they look back at these photos over the course of their lives. I sincerely hope I am still connected to them, one day, when their kids can have a photos of this day, at their wedding as well.

Congratulations guys. We love you!!
