Kootenay Wedding Real Wedding; Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert

I'm not particularly a country fan, but Blake Shelton's appearance as mentor on The Voice may just win me over. I love how he has fathered - my favorite - Xenia along, guiding, protecting and building her up. What a gentle giant!
Enjoy the video of he and Miranda Lambert's country wedding. It may inspire; I love the vintage brooch bouquet and first kiss as husband and wife. And it might just make you a fan.
The bouquet-artist is The Ritzy Rose out of  Columbus, Ohio.  A "husband and wife team of entrepreneur and designer who are always searching for unique items and creating original pieces for our clients."  You can find them here:
Twitter @TheRitzyRose.

Kootenay Wedding; Florist Thanks You

Please see the following message and request from Nelson-ite Nadine who is interested in hearing from you.  If you are not in the market, I invite you to  participate based on past experience as I did.  Thanks again wedding community!

Hello to all involved with the Kootenay Wedding industry.  My name is Nadine Honsinger and I am currently setting up a business, The Green Poppy, a sustainable floral design business located in Nelson, BC.

The Green Poppy is focused on Green Weddings and Events, using local/organic/wild crafted/fair trade import flowers. My target market is bride's or bride's to be. I am currently enrolled with the Community Futures program, performing market research. As brides generally seek us out in the industry I am finding the best way for me to get in touch with them is through you.

I am wondering if it is possible for you to forward this link. It is a brief survey, it will only take a minute to fill out. I thank you for passing this on, if & when possible and I look forward to working with you in the sustainable future.

Yours Naturally,
Nadine Honsinger, The Green Poppy, Nelson,BC

Kootenay Wedding; Help a Bride Out?

Please see the following message from August 2012 bride Ms. M and message Kootenay Wedding if you have any leads apart from what is listed on the site for event planning.  Thanks lovelies!

"I'm mainly looking for someone to help with the decorating-- I mostly have an idea what we're hoping for and would be able to likely find all the elements by word of mouth/do it yourself style unless we find someone who might have some items to rent out as part of their services.... If you hear of anyone that comes on the scene in the next while, please let me know :) Thanks sooo much again for your message back! Your website is an awesome resource!!! I'm from Nelson originally but there has been so many new people, vendors and ideas you are presenting that I wouldn't have thought would be available there, its been so nice to be able to check it out periodically! Thank you for that!"

You're so very welcome Ms. M.  All the very best with your search and knot-tying!  Happy to help,
Kootenay Wedding

Kootenay Wedding; Vibrant Vintage Wedding - A Beautiful Mess

Do you like color? and vintage? and color? and DIY? and color?   Then Elsie & Jeremy's wedding movie is for you.  I was drawn to Elsie's blog, A Beautiful Mess, by it's lovely banner image.  From which I discovered her delicious wedding blog, Le Wedding Party.
Elsie & Jeremy from Goodwin Films on Vimeo.

The rest, as they say, is her-story. 
But her wedding venue is the real deal.  I wish I were as brave and self-assured as Elsie when it came time to planning my wedding!  How about you?  Are you going all out for yours?
