I was lucky enough to be involved in Oriana and Morgan's wedding last August. I say lucky because she is such a lovely girl, inside and out.
Oriana is a statuesque blond...a natural beauty. She wanted to have a soft look that reflected who she is and it was definitely my pleasure to work with her to create that vision for her! She surrounded herself with some of the best vendors Edmonton has to offer, and although her journey wasn't without a few speedbumps(after all, what wedding isn't), having those vendors definitely paid off for her!
About 10 days prior to the wedding, Oriana contacted me to ask what I thought about making a change in her hairstyle. She had seen something she really loved and when I saw the inspiration picture she sent me I knew it was perfect for her.
With no time to do another trial we both had to have faith in one another that this was the right thing to do. As it turned out it was the amazing thing to do!
She looked exactly like she should have-natural, soft, romantic and like the most beautiful version of herself. While we both loved her original style, this had the right amount of natural, classic and modern with a pinch of personality:)
The morning of her wedding was relaxed and fun-she and her bridal party filled their suite with laughter, fond memories and anticipation of new memories to come! This is such an important time for brides, it can be highly emotional but so extremely special.
This is often the last opportunity the girls have to spend together before they get swept up in the festivities of the day. I see so many different ways of spending the morning but the most important thing I see is for the girls to enjoy their morning together relaxing and enjoying the moment.
I always stress how important it is to go with the flow on the wedding day(especially) so you can enjoy every minute of it. Oriana took that to heart from the minute we showed up to the minute we left!
Thank you for that Oriana, it truly was my pleasure to be included in such a special moment for you.
Aren't the dresses lovely?? Oriana wanted to make sure I gave special mention to the ladies at Bridal Debut for saving the day and making sure her attendants had custom dresses on extremely short notice when her original dresses fell through...good work Bridal Debut! I love hearing about how someone turns a bad situation good.
Oriana and Morgan had their reception at the Hangar in Fort Edmonton Park(one of my favorite venues as my husband and I had our reception in The Clerk's Quarters). I always love seeing pictures from Fort Edmonton....:)

Thanks again Oriana for being so amazing from start to finish-you are the reason why I love my job so much! I wish you and Morgan many years of happiness:)
