Isn’t this hairstyle breathtaking? An updo is such a good choice when you’re wearing something like the Waterfall Dress from BHLDN. Those silk buttons! This entire ensemble really encompasses D + B’s small garden wedding. The intimacy allowed them to write little notes to each guest, connect with everyone, and snag the right venues. Everything was as timeless as that dress—for $13k in under five months, too.

Thanks to Kristyn Harder Photography for the images below!

The bride’s favorite elements of both Reader Rock Garden in Calgary + their reception and catering, Open Range Restaurant: I liked that both places didn’t require any decorating. The garden was immaculately maintained and already had a gazebo on the main lawn. The restaurant, open range, was very rustic inside, but having ate there a couple times before, it was definitely the food that made it our top choice.

Bonnie says, Our aisle song was Knocking On Heaven’s Door over the piano, although I don’t think even a quarter of the song played, I basically ran down the aisle to Dan. We never got a formal first dance at our wedding so a few weeks later I lit tea lights all around our kitchen before Dan come home, we opened a bottle of our favourite champagne and danced to What A Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong. This was a good fit for us as all of our best dances take place in the kitchen!

A darling mix of peach avalanche roses, Juliet garden roses, cream astilbe, and wheat.
