Can I have a wedding party?
Yes, the wedding party will be included in your guests count. They can be standing right up there beside you and your partner or watching from the front row. If you wish to have them be a part of additional services such as hair and makeup or would like for them to have florals, please let us know and we can add them to your quote.
How does the 90 or 120 minutes work? Won’t I feel rushed?
You are in complete control of your wedding timeline! You can decide how long you’d like the ceremony to be, how long you would like to rent the venue for and how long you would like to spend taking photos or taking part in other activities (e.g first dance, speeches etc)
Additional hours can always be added to accommodate your perfect timeline! While we may take down the decor and pack up the cake, the party doesn’t have to end with us! Feel free to stay and enjoy the space for as long as you’re able to or head out with your crew for a night on the town!
Sample Elopement (60 minutes):
5-10 minutes to get guests settled and the couple ready for their chosen entrance.
10-15 minutes for the ceremony.
35-45 minutes for champagne, photos or treats (or all of it)!
Sample Pop-Up Wedding (120 minutes):
10-15 minutes to get guests settled and the couple ready for their chosen entrance.
10-15 minutes for the ceremony.
90-100 minutes for champagne, speeches, slow dances, family photos, couple photos, cake cutting and/or appetizers.
What can I expect for the mini cocktail reception?
This is your time to enjoy some nibbles and sips with your guests to celebrate after the ceremony or keep them happy while you’re off taking your photos!
Dependent on the location, we can serve just about anything that you’re craving! Generally couples opt to serve something sweet such as cake, cupcakes or pastries along with cheese, meat and/or veggie boards with crackers, breads and/or paninis. For drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options are available.
These are generally not hot foods so they will not require heating or special kitchen equipment to manage making it super easy to set up anywhere! However, if you are interested in serving hot foods, we can always find the perfect caterer to help out or use the venues in house catering team (if available).
*Please note, some venues require that we only use their in house catering for both drinks and food and may charge additional fees such as corkage or cake cutting fees for any foods/drinks brought in from elsewhere.
THE WEDDING DETAILS QUESTIONS
What do the decor themes look like?
Romantic: This will often include neutral or pastel colours, candles, lace, and mirrors.
Quirky: Taking from fun current trends, with the use of bright colours and other fun knick-knacks.
Rustic: Think light neutral colours, wood, burlap and antique looking decor.
You can upgrade to a custom decor theme starting at $525. There are so many themes out there, if your heart is set on a certain theme for your wedding – this add-on is perfect for you!
What do the Bouquet and Boutonnière look like?
If you have no preference, we base the flower colours and styles on the season. Colour scheme will be kept fairly neutral for Romantic and Rustic themes and brighter for Quirky themes. If you have a favourite colour or flower let us know and we will do our best to incorporate them!
You also have the option to upgrade your Bouquet and Boutonniere to include specific flowers that may be out of season or to a different material (such as handmade paper flowers, or silk bouquets). You can also upgrade to have real flower decor on your chairs, archway, or table. All of these options have custom rates.
If we decide on adding a videographer to our wedding package, what do we receive?
After filming for 90 minutes, you will get a full cinematic 5 minutes long edited video. Relive your amazing celebration any time you like!
Can we personalize our ceremony?
Our officiant performs a ceremony with vows pre-written. If you would like to personalize and bring your own or include readings, we ask that you let us know during the initial consultation or at least 3 weeks prior to passing it on to our officiant to skim over and prepare.
How does the ceremony music work?
If the venue allows music, we will have a collection of music that will be played through your 90+ minute wedding. If you have particular songs you would like to play during the ceremony, please let us know. We will have to be able to download the song, if we are unable to do so, we will ask you to supply the song.
For live music, the musician has a set they will play. If you have a particular song request, please let us know and we can see if the musician is able to include it in their set.
Can I bring my own vendor?
Whether you have your own officiant, caterer or photographer in mind we do not offer discounts in any of our services. You are more than welcome to discuss with us anything you may have in mind.
Should I get a makeup trial?
We only work with or recommend artists that are well established and versed in the world of hair and makeup, but your wedding day only happens once! At your makeup or hair trial, the artist learns about your dress, colours, inspiration and helps you put together a look that you will be comfortable with. They get to learn how makeup sits on your skin, the texture of your hair and can make recommendations for both hair and skin care before your big day. Most importantly, during a trial, the artist can adjust the look without the stress of a timeline which is much harder to do on your wedding day.

Where will you stay?
The most convenient place relative to where the ceremony will be taking place. Whether that’s an AirBnb, hotel or a tent we always consider how we will be able to best manage the timeline and to do list ahead of us!
Will my wedding be legal in Canada/Alberta?
Our photographer will try to stay hidden and take some shots before and during the big ask. Once they have said yes, the photographer will take a few posed shots of the two of you.
