Holiday Workshop - The Open Trunk Workshop - Calgary Wedding Photographer

A few times a year I get to attend (and sometimes be a vendor in) the Open Trunk Workshops. These incredible workshops are created by my friend and fellow "Golden Girl" Heather, who is also the owner of Orange Trunk Vintage Styling and Rentals.

The Holiday Workshop was held back in November, at Creekside Villa. Nestled in the beautiful town of Canmore with a view of the mountains; this venue is the perfect balance of elegance and warmth.

The workshop was complete with both an engagement session and a styled wedding. Heather thought of every little detail as she always does. And her curated team of vendors made this day simply marvelous! I learned, laughed, connected and laughed some more. I walked away with more knowledge, more friends and some pretty wonderful images, all thanks to this day. And to this amazing workshop!

Please enjoy some of my favorite images from this day, and check out the full list of vendors at the end!

This real life couple that Heather chose for the workshop was perfection! They have such a great connection and are both beautiful souls inside and out.

They even brought their beautiful pooch, Carl. And we all know how much I love dogs!!!

After a beautiful outdoor engagement session, we went back to Creekside Villa for lovely little lunch and began the styled wedding portion of the day.

Every single detail had been thought of and provided for us to have the full wedding day experience. Such an amazing opportunity for each attendee!

That attention to detail though.... Wow!

I've always been a sucker for a pretty bouquet on a one of a kind vintage chair!

I honestly couldn't have dreamed of a more beautiful day! Thank you so much to Heather and all of the amazing vendors who made this workshop such a lovely experience! Can't wait for the next one! - Melanie Xx
