Alberta Styled Elopement in Old Train Roundhouse
Misty: This gorgeous Alberta wedding inspiration is beautiful on it’s own. What really caught our attention was the story of how the shoot happened. We’ll let Raelene Schulmeister Photography’s words tell it:
“This creative session was a dream come true for me! The colour palette my designer and I chose was copper (a play on the blush tones that are so hot this year), yellows and greens. Here where we’re located, there is a lot of burlap and babies’ breath used in decor and we really wanted to show brides in our area that you can think outside the box and find inspiration elsewhere! Our location was amazing! We utilized the rubble and skeleton walls of an old train roundhouse.
There was a bit of a hiccup in terms of weather, being that it rained…then snowed and stayed cold. Originally we wanted our table and set up outside, but with the temperature being so cold and the wind a little stronger than we’d like, we chose to use the interior of an old grain elevator. The florals were one of my favourite elements of our shoot! Our floral designer took inspiration from blooms coming up through cracks in the sidewalks, flowers growing where there is rubble and ruins, a little bit of brightness in solitude.
There’s a lot of texture in all the elements of this shoot and I’m so incredibly proud of it. I hope future brides take notice of the fact that your location doesn’t have to be something all fairytales are made of…she can make her own.”
Mike: I wish there was a way to go back in time so I could have a piece of that cake. If it’s anywhere as delicious as it is beautiful I’m sure that it would instantly change my life. Oh yea, there’s also some amazing portraits taken in an old mill that are absolutely stunning. The juxtaposition of beauty and old falling down mill is perfectly represented.
