Our Elegant Country Photoshoot is published in Bridal Fantasy magazine and hits the newsstands the end of January! Rocking R Guest Ranch, just 45 minutes east of Calgary, got in touch with us at Mountain Bride to plan and design this photoshoot and featured two page magazine spread. Our lead Designer & Owner, Lisa Grosso, jumped at the opportunity to showcase an elegant country design. No burlap and mason jars here folks!
“My design focus was light fresh colors, whimsical flower design and natural light photography. It was an easy pick to bring Miranda Weston Photography on to capture the details. I love her work and even more, love working with Miranda!”, says Lisa Grosso of Mountain Bride.
The Bridal Boutique kindly offered our choice of wedding dress to feature from their beautiful collection. By a stroke of luck the day we went to pick the dress, Rue de Seine, one of our favourite wedding dress designers, was having an exclusive trunk show at The Bridal Boutique.
Working with the ladies from Tux n Tulle, hair and makeup stylists was fantastic! “They got my vision from the get go of an upscale country look.” Calgary has so much of our culture rooted in the country; a little western mixed with a whole lot of sophistication. We like to mix our cowboy boots with diamonds and lace.
The venue, Rocking R Guest Ranch, has a beautiful tent that is available for weddings from June through September. The guest ranch has luxury cabins, with a beautiful view of Eagle Lake, open fields and the Rocky Mountains in the background.
