A windswept veil gets us every time.

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.

The Montreal wedding of Mary & Robert was a beautiful occasion that was both love-filled and opulent. Their incredibule day was captured by Grey Sparrow and expertly planned by Blanc Events, who utterly transformed The Panoramic Hall at the Montreal Science Centre into a magnificent enchanted forest.

A word from the bride: "Robert and I both dreamed of getting married in the country, as we both grew up spending our summers there. However, getting 300 people to the country is no easy task. Instead, we thought it would be easier to transform a room at the Science Center in Montreal into an enchanted forest. The color scheme revolved around warmth and greenery, focusing on deep burgundies and dark mauves, as well as introducing tons of wood and muted silvers."

Mary chose to wear Vera Wang's Liesel gown; the intricately beading dropped waist bodice and full layered skirt suited her beautifully. If you are experiencing major shoe envy right now, you are not alone; we LOVE her Jazzy Doll heels by Christian Louboutin.

" an earthy yet muted red wine colour with strong brown undertones.. "

marsala colour wedding cake

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.

" Inspiration for this event came from my 4-yr old daughter. Being a huge Frozen fan, she was in love with snow princesses! She dreamed of meeting a real snow princess someday. "

Snow Princess Bride

Styling, production, photography and narration by Jenny Vandersteen, Mill Canyon Photography - Pincher Creek, AB.

At the same time I always hated winter, but thought that the winter offered some of the most beautiful photo opps, and infrequently saw many winter weddings. Doing summer weddings year after year, I wanted to create something different. I chose the model because I loved her look- both beautiful classically, as well as a bit edgy, with the brown/purple/red hair. I loved the contrast created with her hair and the snow, along with her gorgeous eyes, I thought she would make the perfect winter bride.

Gorgeous Pnina Tournai wedding gown

What a trooper! Kassidy Czerniak poised & gorgeous in the sub-zero Alberta winter conditions!

We own a beautifully, scenic ranch, which was the perfect backdrop for this shoot. I do not work in a studio. I do all of my photography outdoors, on our ranch. It offers unique, amazing spots, from beautiful mountain vistas, to secluded forest trails, flower-filled meadows to old vintage vehicles, tall hay fields, steep rocky cliffs, and stunning streams and ponds. Not to mention all the wildlife! (bears, cougars, elk, deer, fish, eagles, songbirds, moose..)

The gorgeous winter fur-lined cape

Living in the heart of the southwest Alberta Rockies, winter is a big part of our year. I wanted to create a beautiful inspiration to brides to consider the majesty and uniqueness of winter weddings. I started gathering ideas of inspiration for this shoot, selected my ideal model, designed the headpieces & bouquets, found the perfect gown, and the best hair & make-up artist. Everyone involved was from the local area, which I loved as well!

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."
