Real Wedding Sneak Peek: The Shoes that Started it All

Charlene the bride, contacted me less than a month before her wedding. She was cool, calm and collected. I, on the other hand, knowing my wedding schedule and limited time available was direct and to the point.Only one month to figure out her style, likes, dislikes etc. I better get on this!
Charlene is from Calgary and I prayed she was one of those bride's that answered her emails promptly. Thank goodness she was :) Charlene told me her wedding was all about the shoes and emailed me the above photo. AAH, I thought to myself hot pink satin shoes...ideas started to form.
Charlene wanted to use hydrangea for sentimental reasons. She likes simple, monochromatic bouquets.
The bridesmaids wore lilac and purple knee length dresses .
The flower girl was not even two so she carried this little hydrangea posy. It was so tiny and sweet that every time I looked at it I said, "Aww".
The Groom's boutonniere.
The wristlet was made on a seed pearl bracelet and unfortunately the image I took of it in the studio was blurry. I am no photgrapher. Sigh.

Two different kinds of centerpieces short and tall. In the studio.
One of the altar pieces in the studio. Lace table cloths are great to hide all the floral debris!
The tall centerpieces. I am now seriously considering taking a photography course this fall.First, I must get a decent Camera, one that has not been dropped and is held together with tape!
Altar flowers. Outdoor ceremony by the ocean.
Centerpieces in the venue.
Each table was named after a different cocktail. The children' s table was called "Shirley Temple" and they did not get a centerpiece but instead got toys on their table.Good idea to keep them entertained during the reception.
I am looking forward to seeing the professional photos for this wedding. I think they will be beautiful. Congratulations to Charlene and Darrell married on this day of July 4, 2009.Thank-you for letting me be a part of your special day and thank-you Charlene for sending me that photo of the shoes. The shoes that started it all!
