On April 20th a bunch of super talented Winnipeg wedding vendors came together to collaborate on a beautiful Fall-themed wedding styled shoot and today I’m excited to finally share the photos with everyone!

This styled shoot has been in the works since I first discovered the talents of a Winnipeg wedding decorator by the name of Kara Wiebe. She is the creative genius behind HEM design, who specializes in vintage wedding design and decor. Kara has been decorating children’s bedrooms and baby nurseries since 2011, and she’s recently expanded into wedding decor. She’s passionate about adding vintage appeal and rustic charm to weddings, and as soon as I saw her design work, I just KNEW I wanted to collaborate with her on a photo shoot!


We knew we wanted to add even more Winnipeg talent to the team so we started asking local wedding vendors if they wanted to come on board. We got overwhelmingly positive responses, and in no time we had built a great team of like-minded individuals to contribute to the shoot. A big THANK YOU goes out to everyone who jumped on board with us and shared our vision. The shoot was made perfectly complete by everyone involved and we are honoured to showcase their creative talents. Here’s everyone who joined our team:

Oak & Lily – florals

High Tea Bakery – desserts & cakes

Poppie Clothing – bride’s dresses

Make sure to visit all the vendors’ websites and like their Facebook pages. I’d highly recommend each one since they were all an absolute pleasure to work with (not only because of their talents, but also because of their lovely and fun personalities!). These are people you’d want to share your wedding day with!

Another thank you goes out to our models Erin and Mike who also happen to be engaged in real life! They were a delight to work with and we’re happy they let us doll them up for all these photos. Thanks guys!

Here’s the gallery of photos. Enjoy!
