Lauren and Jordan’s all-white wedding was the epitome of elegance! Their celebration featured several sentimental details, such as the ceremony venue, chosen as a nod to the bride’s profession as a music teacher, and their hockey rink-shaped monogram, which served as a subtle reference to the groom’s career in the NHL. See more from Lauren and Jordan’s wedding in the Winter/Spring 2018 issue of WedLuxe Magazine (Vancouver & Western Canada edition).

Winter Wonderland Wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge

Happy Dance!  We were so honoured to create custom wedding stationery for this Calgary couple.  From their unique invitations to the personalized weekend program.  Taking inspiration from Emerald Lake Lodge we created a custom mountain design and added to all their day of stationery needs: signs, seating chart, place cards, map, program, water bottle labels and even their unique wine bottle guest book.  Seeing these images makes us smile.

Congrats Matt and David…may you always be this happy!

The Couple:  Matt and David

 

The Wedding:  Emerald Lake Lodge, British Columbia, Canada

 

This winter wedding at Emerald Lake Lodge is sure to warm your heart! Matt and David opted for a cozy and intimate wedding to share with their family who traveled from all over the world. When it came down to planning their wedding, it was a breeze the help of Lynn Fletcher Weddings who helped them in every way possible. With their hands free of all wedding-related things a week before they said “I do,” Matt and David were able to relax and be present in the moments leading up to their big day. When it was time to celebrate, their small reception had big party vibes from live music provided by Famous Players BandCarey Nash Photography was there every moment and beautifully captured Matt and David’s love for one another.

The Polar Bear Swim! We convinced over 30 people to take a dip in Emerald Lake – a glacier fed emerald green lake surrounded by snow-covered mountains – that was 2 degrees! It was so much fun for both those swimming and those watching.

Know when to stop planning, to trust your planner, and to start enjoying! Our Wedding Planner, Lynn, was the one who told us to do this and it was the best advice we received. We had been in the weeds planning for months (over a year) and we did not know when to ‘turn it off’. Lynn called us the week before and said, “it’s time to let go – no more changes, no more worries”. From that moment on we entrusted Lynn and her team to make decisions on our behalf and we had the best weekend of our lives!

Marc, Dave’s brother, could not get licensed in British Columbia due to Provincial regulation, so our legal ceremony (private) was done 30 minutes before our public ceremony with our family in our hotel room. It was a special, intimate moment, that we did not tell anyone about until it happened.

During the middle of the ceremony a Jay flew in threw the crowd and landed on the sole tree beside us – he sat and watched the whole thing! We were later told by a guest: jays resonate truth, faithfulness, and solidarity because they are vigilant in their tasks. They also keep with the same mate for life, which is symbolic of endurance, patience and loyalty. The jay is an excellent symbol for those wishing to honour their long-lasting bond between friends, family and lovers.

Dave’s brother, Marc, “officiated” the public ceremony. It was one of the most special ceremonies we had ever heard – complete with wonderful detail, jokes, quotes, and our own vows. Nearly everyone watching, including vendors, were in tears at some point. It really encompassed who we are and why we chose to get married.

Emerald Lake Lodge was one of our favourite places to visit since we moved to Calgary. It is isolated, with no cell phone service and no tv’s in the rooms (only wood burning fireplaces!). We wanted our everyone to unplug and relax, spend time getting to know each other and enjoying the mountains.

Lynn Fletcher, of Lynn Fletcher Weddings, was truly amazing. We spent over 18 months working with Lynn and her team planning our wedding – every minute, every detail, every dream. She helped make our wedding dreams come true. After months of planning, her and her team spent four days onsite ensuring everything was perfect. We could not imagine the weekend without her. She is now part of our life forever, as a great friend.

New Year, New Studio

2016 was a year of massive change and growth for The Social Page. As many of you know, after 25 years of retail, we closed the doors on our shopping space, mainly due to a 60% increase from the City of Calgary in property taxes. That, combined with slower foot traffic through the shop, meant we had to make some hard choices. So we choose to refocus our energy back where we started, back to what we love doing and what we do best and that’s making incredible invitation suites.

unspecified-8

With closing our doors, how could that mark a year of growth for us? As professionals, it was a year of incredible gratitude. Gratitude for our loyal customers, for our corporate clients who continued to support a local business and for everyone in the Calgary wedding community who continued to do business with us, despite the uphill battles we were facing. Personally and professionally, we grew, as individuals and as a team.

unspecified-9

Our new location is something we are most certainly celebrating this year. Warm, focused and quiet, our new space allows our award-winning designers and staff to have intimate one-on-one consultations with our clients with fewer distractions. Our new location has convenient free parking right outside our door and makes it possible to continue to offer the opportunity for clients and customers to purchase bulk paper and envelopments. It’s the perfect creative environment for us, and we are so excited to have welcomed so many people through our doors since we arrived in October.

While our design space may have changed, our online store has not! Filled to bring with everything you need to fill out the details of your party or wedding planning, we still offer hundreds of products to create the perfect event.

Our new space empowers us creatively and allows us to continue to focus on our passion and what we do best – creating award-winning Calgary wedding and event stationery.

Our Favourite Ways To Use Fairy Doors

We are so excited to be carrying Fairy Doors in the shop! What’s a Fairy Door you ask? Only the cutest little piece of decor you might have caught a glimpse of out of the corner of your eye. Fairy Doors are small, whimsical doors that you snuggle into existing spaces in or outside your home – places like your garden, your decor, even cakes and pasties if you like! Think of them little mini hobbit doors – the shape and design of Fairy Tales immediately takes your imagination somewhere magical and special.

In the shop, we’re carrying a whole host of Fairy Door kits – from simple doors with doorframe to entire outdoor living spaces (think clean laundry, lanterns and other trinkets). Here are some fun ways we’ve seen people use Fairy Doors, straight from our favourite social media platform – Pinterest!

Tree Trunks

One of the most popular spots to put a Fairy Door, tree trunks become front yards for Fairies as you spruce up the landscaping with rocks, moss, flowers and other natural decor.

Tree Stumps

Tree stumps become fairy and elf mansions when you attach a Fairy Door to them. Basically – this is your chance to build your dream home without budget or second opinions spoiling your fun!

Garden Planters

The easiest place to build out a fairy house is in a garden planter. Attach your Fairy Door to either the base of the planter or tuck it into the flower bed itself to create the illusion of a home amongst the greenery.

Baseboards

Almost like a mouse door, tucking a Fairy Door in an inconspicuous corner of your house will give little guests goosebumps and butterflies at the thought of what’s happening behind the walls.

Telephone Poles

This Fairy Door attached to a telephone pole, as soon on Apartment Therapy, adds a ton of whimsy to this downtown New York street. Actually, check out this entire post for some fun ideas!
