chantal & ryan's fabulous forest nuptuals; fernie wedding photographer

Chantal & Ryan's spring wedding in the forests of Fernie were high on style and low on expectations. Their Sunday looks ripped out of the pages of a style magazine thanks to the design savvy bride and owner of Freyja, Fernie's fashion house.  She orchestrated an ornate gilt mirror and gold antlers hanging from trees.  An old trunk held candle holders, antique books and a spray of florals. And stately furniture completed the outdoor living room.

Chantal was a Greek goddess in Ray Bans and red patent Rockstud Valentino's with interchangable red patent Hunter boots.  She also donned some of the prettiest, most inspiring florals - The Green Petal's bouquet and flower crown - I've ever seen in lipstick red, coral, lemon and blush peonies, tulips and ranunculous.  The girls' look was capped off with faux fur stoles to combat the forest chill.

Made me real happy that this girl changed her date for me!
