Kim & Matteo’s Chic Pink and Pewter Wedding with a touch of Hockey


Fairmont Palliser wedding

While planning their big day, Kim and Matteo made sure that their family and friends would have an awesome time celebrating with them. They didn’t have a theme but they kept things cohesive with a chic pink and pewter color motif that tied together a smattering of elements that spelled “them”. Kim and her mom DIYed the flower arrangements for a personal touch, and casual, funky details like sparkly pink Toms for the girls + a pink tie and polka-dot socks for the guys added a relaxed vibe to the party. You will also see some really cool  portraits of the couple with their hockey sticks, a nod to the sport that brought them together, as well as a fun surprise during the reception — a ceremonial hockey face-off on the dance floor.

We have Calgary-based Anna Michalska Photography to thank for the gorgeous photos. Enjoy!

I’m happy to have the lovely Kim right here to tell us all about her and Matteo and their special day:

I am born and raised in Ottawa, ON and my husband is a born and raised Calgarian.  We are both big into sports, especially hockey.  We actually met in 2008 playing floor hockey.  We are both very much homebodies and love hanging out together.  We are that annoying couple that does everything together.

I grew up in a Jewish household and Matteo grew up in a Catholic household.  We really wanted to mix the two religions throughout our wedding so we were married in a Catholic church but did some traditional Jewish dancing at the reception (like the Horah).

We wanted our wedding to be an event our family and friends would remember.  We were very adamant that we wanted our guests to enjoy themselves just as much if not even more than we did.

Another thing that made our wedding very much “Kim & Matteo”, we didn’t even plan.  Matteo‘s brother surprised us during his speech with a ceremonial hockey face-off on the dance floor, equipped with mini sticks and all.

Words of advice from the newlywed:

Enjoy the planning.  Enjoy the day.  Just enjoy every moment.
