Crafted from the Earth: A Bouquet of Love and Sustainability

In today's sustainability-driven era, Michaela's wedding bouquet is a prime example of an eco-conscious celebration. Crafted with love, it embraced nature's beauty and gave back to the environment with care and appreciation. Sourced from local flower farms for the freshest, most exquisite blooms, including Dutch tulips, paid homage to Michaela's family roots, adding a sentimental touch to honour her ancestors respectfully. The bouquets exuded a rustic elegance that was perfectly fitting for a curated country fair vibe.

The Significance of a Bloom

The flowers were more than a mere accessory for this thoughtful day. With the couple's love for nature and the reverence for the land they chose to marry, it was important to consider where the flowers came from and honour the hand and love of our Alberta growers. Each bloom became a symbol of a love that grows, a love that is fostered and nurtured, much like the very blooms that adorned each bouquet. We designed the bouquets to honour the farming background of the groom. We sourced local grains like wheat and other naive grasses to be included in our design. The intentional inclusion of textures was completed with the addition of sea holly, nigella, phlox and scabiosa, and the use of the Panda anemone with their pretty blue/black textural centers. These bouquets were a nod to the couple's love for nature, a story of celebration for sustainable choices and meaningful gestures that make a wedding day special. Our hope is this wedding can inspire other couples to incorporate personal touches and embrace nature; It was a signature expression of a day where every little detail was a story in itself, a story worth preserving.


Capturing the Moments: Storytelling through Photography

The family ranch was more than this couple's venue; it was a canvas that dreams are made of. The stunning backdrops and intimate locales offer endless settings to capture the love and laughter of this sweet couple. The photos tell a story of a moment frozen in time and a day arranged with care, attention and love that celebrated the raw beauty of the Canadian West. The memories of Michaela and Tristyn's wedding at Butler Ranch were immortalized through the exceptional talent of Orange Girl Photography. With an eye for the sublime, each shutter click by this renowned photographer was an act of artistry, capturing the unspoken, the fleeting, and the profoundly beautiful day. The ability to see a story in a glance and a lifetime in a moment sets Orange Girl Photography apart.
