Stacey + Ryan – A Rustic Chic River Café Wedding

Stacey + Ryan – A Rustic Chic River Café Wedding

Stacey and Ryan’s rustic chic wedding at the River Café in Calgary was to be an intimate, romantic party for their friends and family. The River Cafe has some of the best food and service in Calgary and made for a rustic chic venue that complimented the couples personality and style. All of the details at the reception were carefully chosen by Ryan and Stacey. And at the end of the night their family and friends were encourage to take home their Moscow/Kentucky mule copper mugs that were engraved in their seal designed by Ryan himself.

The day started with Stacey and Ryan getting ready in separate rooms at the Sheraton Hotel near Prince’s Island Park. They chose to do a first look, followed by portraits of the Wedding Party and the Formal Portraits of the Bride and Groom. After a quick refresher for makeup and fluids, Ryan, Stacey, their wedding party and families gathered at River Cafe for a few family photos. Stacey’s brother had the honour of providing acoustic guitar music at the ceremony and surprised them with a little song he wrote for them. After the ceremony I was able to steal a few Newly Wed photos and after Ryan and Stacey joined their guests for a beautiful cocktail hour hosted on the patio of the River Cafe. The reception was kicked off with great food, hilarious and sentimental speeches and drinks. Stacey with help of her friends and family shut down the dance floor. =)
