Katie + Brett I The Lake House Wedding
Guys.... where. do. we. even. start!! We have a special place in our hearts for these two and are so excited to get to share this wedding with y'all!
Katie + Brett are legit model clients. Not only do they look like models (you'll see more below!), but they are kind, funny and even made a full on wedding 'model' for the big day (complete with pie chart!). The wedding vibe was classic, beautiful, timeless and elegant.
When we started the design process with K+B we were inspired by the natural elements of the venue. We focused on bringing in organic greenery to compliment the stone and wood in the Lake House. We incorporated olive branches into the design (who doesn't want the symbol for peace in their wedding!) and brought in a large greenery installation for the mantel, garlands for the tables and greenery for signage. We topped it off with a wooden signage suite complete with hand lettering and a custom monogram.
As the venue transitioned from the ceremony to the reception in a short time frame, the planning focused on creating elements and timelines that allowed for a seamless transition of the space. We planned for a beautiful cocktail hour, a fantastic dinner (complete with stationary additions from one of Katie's talented bridesmaids) and a raging dance party.
The We'll-Remember-This-Always Moment
We'll give it up - K+B had some of our favorite vows. Honest, sentimental and with a side of humour (if you're looking for a vow writing coach, they might be good to contact!).
The Wrap Up
We were almost sad to see their wedding day come because it meant our emails + meetings were going to come to an end. We're so glad we were included in this one. Keep scrolling to see all of the beauty below!

A PS From K+B
"During our first meeting with Paper Doll Events, Lindsay and Steph asked what my (now) husband and I wanted from our Wedding. Our answer- was to be stress-free, to enjoy ourselves and to create a space where everyone felt the love. We owe the success of our wedding to the Paper Doll Girls. Every detail was carefully thought out, planned, and executed to perfection! Dealing with Paper Doll throughout the course of our engagement was a joy. Steph and Lindsay were responsive, had incredible insight into the Calgary Wedding scene, including recommendations on local and not-so-local Vendors, and what options were best available to fulfill our wants for the Big Day. Post Wedding, my husband and I agreed, that the best decision we made for our Wedding (apart from the whole “I choose you for the rest of my life” thing) was hiring Paper Doll. I wish we could get married every year so that we could work with them again. Steph and Lindsay- thank you for making September 9th 2017 the best day of our lives."
