Chic Silver & Gold Wedding Design

When Nikki Collette Photography came to us with an idea to do a metallic infused wedding design, we were immediately intrigued. After having a chat about her vision, she let us do our thing and we quickly got to work on the design board.

The new Albertan wedding venue, Tin Roof Event Centre, served as the perfect location for this dreamy wedding shoot. Located in Lacombe, Alberta, this venue features grand windows overlooking the fields, a wedding suite for the wedding party, an in house bar and our favourite part – a tin roof.

We decided to shoot the ceremony two ways. One featuring natural light coming from the grand windows. This gave the ceremony a bright and airy look that highlighted the design.

Next we flipped the ceremony space and shot away from the windows, capturing the true colours and finer details of the hand dyed tapestries and asymmetrical floral arch installation. If you look closely, you can see pops of blush pink in the florals and all the nuances of the hanging tapestries.

“We wanted to give the illusion that this wedding was dripping in gold.”




To bring the metallic style throughout the wedding design, we created custom installation pieces that hung from magnetic hooks off the tin roof. See why we love the roof so much? Our couple looked like they were walking through a modern art gallery filled with gold and silver collections.

Even the wedding cake incorporated gold leaves and florals in the design.




We decided to create an intimate sweetheart table for our couple. Each place setting was set with silver charger plates, topped with white plates, blush pink satin napkins, an elegant menu card and a silver diamond shaped place card. We tucked a large dried palm fan between the plates for a unique, boho-esque look.







It was fun playing around with the metallic pieces, adding something to every aspect of the wedding. We even poured gold flaked champagne!

Speaking of champagne, we took a completely different route when it came to the bar. Instead of a classic champagne wall, we created a sophisticated and chic whiskey bar complete with all the fixings. And yes….there was even more silver and gold! The ice was sparkling in edible gold flakes and the drinks were stirred with custom disco ball stir sticks. How cute is that?!

“Kiss me silver and gold…”








The couple’s wedding attire was modern and chic. Makenna wore a sleek, silky wedding dress from Blush and Raven, while Brett wore a warm, modern outfit from EW Menswear. Both located in Calgary, Alberta. Makenna’s jewelry and accessories were minimal and modern pieces that complimented her gown perfectly.
