This real wedding makes us want to shout from the mountaintops that Jasper, Alberta is one of the prettiest places in the WORLD to host a winter wedding! Darla & Jeff's winter wonderland wedding, captured by Sofia Katherine Photography, boasts some of the prettiest bridal party portraits that we've seen in a long time! But don't take our word for it - see the breathtaking beauty for yourself and be prepared to swoon.

Frozen lakes and snow covered mountaintops offer an incredibly picturesque backdrop and these two lovebirds knew it would certainly be worth getting a bit chilly for!

From the bride:

We loved the idea of having a winter wedding with snowflakes everywhere and there was no better place for that than the beautiful Rocky Mountains. We have a love affair with the Rockies, plus it's where Jeff got down on one knee and popped the question!

Darla wore a Maggie Sottero gown, which she describes as the dress from her dreams:

"It was covered in Swarovski crystals and when I saw it, I thought it sparkled like snow and knew that I had to have it!"

This little guy's name is Charlie and his cuteness factor is just. too. much!

Elegant, classic, and heartfelt; three words that describe the wedding of Antonella and Frank perfectly. The Ontario couple were married in a beautiful church ceremony and lavish wedding reception at The Venetian Banquet Hall.

Erika Hammer of Ten·2·Ten Photography captured every intimate moment of the couple's day, and shares a few words about their love-filled nuptials.

From Erika:

Behind all the glitz and glamour of a wedding day are two people who are truly in love. Frank and Antonella's wedding day was filled not only with lavish and luxurious details, but also with love for one another and from their families. Having photographed over 100 weddings, I rarely get a chance to see such an incredible outpouring of love.

Ariane and Henry tied the knot at one of Vancouver's much-loved venues, Cecil Green Park House. Situated on the grounds of UBC campus, Cecil Green is simply breathtaking, to say the least.

<< click on any of the photos to see more images. >>

With a picturesque setting like this, is it any wonder that Cecil Green Park House is one of Vancouver's most coveted wedding venues?

Kailey-Michelle, of Kailey Michelle Events, planned a wedding that perfectly showcased the couple's spirit, as well as their vision. Describing themselves as a goofy, spontaneous, movie-loving couple; Ariane & Henry's wedding day had a light-hearted, happy atmosphere that suited the couple perfectly.

From Kailey-Michelle: I first met Ariane through her sister, whose heart was to ease her sister's stress and worry, when it came to both planning her wedding and enjoying the day. If Ariane [and her family] were to savour the day and be fully present to absorb every moment, then she needed someone she could trust to make the magic happen. And the day was exactly that.. magical, filled with sweet sentiment, great food and the most luxurious of settings; like your most elegant dinner party nestled within the walls of history, character and prestige!

Akin to every girl's fairytale, the room dripped with hundreds of fresh cut roses, orchids and strands of pearls. But more striking than the beauty of their wedding day, was the sheer joy these two shared in finally being each others, at last.

Ariane's beaded lace wedding dress fit her perfectly, and her classic bouquet of pink roses by Wedding Design Studio fit the fairytale romance of the day, beautifully.

New Year's Eve has to be one of the best nights of the year to get married. Period! Everyone is already in great spirits on December 31st, and the fun and festiveness of a wedding only adds to the merriment.

Cara & Selwyn tied the knot with their family and loved ones at the Diamond Ballroom in Vancouver.

For better or for worse, when Pantone speaks, the wedding and design world listen. The leading authority on all things colour sets the tone every year and we all follow suit, in one way or another. Over the years, designers, decorators, florists and brides have rejoiced in exciting hues of green, orange, pink, and blue but this year's surprise winner has caught many off guard. A far cry from bright and exciting, Marsala, an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones, has been named Pantone's colour for 2015.

This is a rich, warm colour that signals confidence and strength while giving a sense of groundedness. It is not a fun, flirty colour like what we've seen over the past few seasons but it is one that beckons sophistication from its richness.

Last week, we shared part-one or our two-part editorial with Blush Bridal and Coco Events & Weddings, and we are very excited to reveal the rest of this gorgeous story! Part-one revealed a playful and feminine side to Rosa Clará and Soft by Rosa Clará; two of the newest additions to Vancouver's Blush Bridal.

In part-two, the impressive juxtaposition of this editiorial is revealed; illuminating an entirely new, dramatic side to Rosa Clará. Lara Taylor, of Vancouver-based Coco Events & Weddings, led the creative direction for the editorial and shares the inspiration behind it:

"Inspired by our travels in the East, and our years living in Southeast Asia, we were energized by the myriad of textures and colors in the décor used for celebrations, and in places of worship. We were captivated by the use of rich, strong, metallic, jewel tones and weighted fabrics; contrasted against light and delicate florals, folded papers, and lights.

This shoot was meant to portray the emotions and feelings brought about by two opposing elements. In part one, the paper floral wall created an intricate and whimsical canvas for portraying the delight and playfulness evoked by the anticipation surrounding one's wedding, that one magical day. In part two, the rose gold metallic wall acted as a bold contrast; showing elegance and expressing an intrinsic thread of tradition."

We wanted to have a fabulous, inspiring start to the new year, and decided that the perfect way to do just that, was to debut part one of our two-part editorial with Blush Bridal and Coco Events & Weddings.

Rosa Clará and Soft by Rosa Clará are two new (& gorgeous!) bridal lines that Blush Bridal introduced to Vancouver brides this past year and here at Bride.Canada, we are thrilled to help Blush formally debut the lines. Based in Spain, Rosa Clará gowns standout for their high quality fabrics and precision tailoring. Best of all, Rosa Clará offers something for everyone; whether it be a soft and romantic lace dress, a vintage-inspired beaded sheath, or a refined and elegant ballgown.

Lara Taylor, founder & co-owner of Vancouver-based Coco Events & Weddings, expertly produced both the set design and styling for our editorial. Every consideration was taken when choosing the elements that would best portray all sides of Rosa Clará. The inspiration behind the editorial is best told by Lara:

"This shoot was meant to portray the emotions and feelings brought about by two opposing elements. In part one, the paper floral wall created an intricate and whimsical canvas for portraying the delight and playfulness evoked by the anticipation surrounding one's wedding, that one magical day. In part two..." (sorry, you will have to wait until part two to find out the rest!)

We hope you enjoy part one; be sure to click on the photos for larger views and full image credits!
