Just wait until you see the explosion of killer style at Jocelyn and Julian's wedding at Devonian Gardens in Calgary: the bride's undercut style with green highlights (that match her green cape!), her grey gradient dress with silver corset by KMKDesignsThey ♥ OBB; we ♥ them, the groom's matching grey suit, the masquerade theme, and the "I just want you" cake topper. It's a Canadian masquerade wedding that is making our lives.

Jocelyn's dress was made while she was pregnant, but she said Kaitlyn at KMKDesigns made it a breeze. They also supported a lot of local Calgary businesses to keep it all in the local family. Since it was Halloween, the kids in attendance had to miss out on trick-or-treating, so the pair set up a RAD candy buffet with tons of candy, costume pieces, and trinkets like glow sticks, pencil crayons, colouring pages, and LEGO mini figures. You'll also love the ivy centerpieces propagated by the bride herself with books from a local book shop that focuses on charitable giving.

They ♥ OBB; we ♥ themThis post features Offbeat Vendors! Check out their vendor listing to see how they cater to Offbeat Brides:

  1. Love that dress! So so much! But what are the bride and groom doing with each other's shoes in that photo?

    • It's the shoe game! Bride and Groom face back to back with their shoe in one hand and their partner's in the other. Some one (DJ, MOH, BM, etc) asks a series of questions that can be answered either Bride or Groom e.g. Who made the first move? Who is messier? Who wears the pants in the relationship? etc. Conflicting answers from the couple lead to some fun for everyone =)

      1 agrees
  2. My dear fellow Canucks, I cannot get over the sheer gorgeousness of this – your happy faces, your sweet kids, those amazing outfits, the lovely tree pics, etc. Breathtaking, all of it!

    2 agree
  3. Wow! What a beautiful day. I just love their style, so different and unique and them. Way to rock it out and capture them perfectly!
