Keri + Justin | Calgary River Cafe Wedding
Baby, You're a Firework
This past summer we got to have a bit of a Katy Perry moment. No, we didn't diss Taylor Swift or date John Mayer (although one of us wishes) or bring in two shark costumes (but if we did, Steph would totally be the one on the left). Instead, we got to light up the sky at one of our weddings with some fireworks!
K+J got married at The River Cafe this past August and it was stunning (if we do say so ourselves!). They had an outdoor ceremony, an intimate cocktail hour (complete with live music) and a beautiful indoor reception. The evening also included not one, but two surprises - a serenade from the groom to the bride and a fireworks show that rivaled that of Stampede (but clearly with less horses and denim).
They married under one of our favourite wedding arches to date, used the River Cafe's signature canoes as place card holders and were our first wedding ever to have an end of the night houka party on the patio (if we could make this a trend, we'd like to!).

A note from K+J:
"Paper Doll planned and executed the most beautiful wedding for us. My husband and I were both very busy leading up to our wedding day and they took care of absolutely everything. From helping us identify the key dates and deliverables, to connecting us with the best vendors in the city - Lindsay and Stephanie did it all. I would say the best part about working with these talented women, was that they truly took the time to understand what we wanted and they did such a good job of steering us in the right direction. To be totally honest, the day was so much better than I had ever imagined because they thought of every detail, which I certainly did not have the capacity to do. If you are planning a wedding, reach out to them. They are extremely talented and are a lot of fun to work with!"
