Cherry Creek Estates ~ Chicken and Waffles Styled Shoot // Calgary Wedding Planner

I have THE best job in the world, I get to plan weddings!!  Real weddings for real people, who are totally awesome.  BUT a few times a year I also get to do styled shoots!

As an advertiser in Calgary Bride I’m asked to do a shoot for the magazine every year and I know I say this every time but I think this one was really my MOST favourite!!  The theme for the magazine this year was the anniversary edition, so every team was given a different anniversary, ours was the 6th, Candy, Iron and Wood.  When I saw the stunning venue just outside of Cranbrook, BC, Cherry Creek Estates, it reminded me of a southern mansion, and so the chicken and waffles brunch theme was born.

Where vintage meets country, take a peek at the gorgeous photos from 6:8 Photography.

It’s a callaboration, one day spent with a group of crazy talented individuals where we all bring our best to the table and this year was no exception.  A HUGE shout out to everyone involved.
