Today’s Real Wedding is a little out of the norm coming to our Head Over Heels team from Manitoba, Canada.
The backdrop of Karmen and Kyle’s wedding was too cute to pass on, wedding planner Allison Polinsky of Alli Mae Fresh Events sent us all the details and some awesome images.
Here’s what Allison told us about this Winnipeg Wedding.
Their wedding theme was ‘The Hunt Is Over” (a fun play on Kyle’s love of hunting) full of whimsical, playful details with lots of DIY touches.
We created the head table backdrop out of various pieces of green velvet, white silk, and glitter fabric panels, and spray painted hundreds of mini animal figurines gold to accent them on guest tables, sweet table and receiving table.
We also made 100 hearts out of patterned scrapbook paper and craft sticks and arranged them along the path leading to the ceremony chapel and around the reception tent, along with hanging bulbs suspended from vintage ladders.
The wedding took place at Asessippi, a ski resort owned by the Brides’ family in the sprawling valleys 4 hours north of Winnipeg in Canada, so not only was it a stunning landscape, but it also had a huge sentimental value (also where Kyle proposed)!
The photos are just….well, you will see!
