Kristen + Phil // Calgary Westin Wedding // Calgary Wedding Photography

Kristen and Phil had an action-packed Calgary wedding and they did not forget a single detail in treating all their family and friends to a classy and fun-filled day. They began the day with some getting ready photos at the Westin Airport Hotel. From there we headed to Nose Hill for a beautiful first look, followed by some family and bridal party portraits. Complete with family photos with their miniature wiener dog, Doug. Please often ask if we mind if they include pets, we don’t just not mind it, we love it! Plus my volunteer experience with AARCS (Alberta Animal Rescue Crew) mean I have a few tricks up my sleeves to get your pups to look at the camera. Nose Hill was a terrific spot with a variety of options and the weather was perfect. Kristen brought along her grandmother's vintage chair to incorporate into bridal portraits. It's always special to incorporate sentimental items into wedding day photos as it makes for some terrific memories.

After the Nose Hill photos it was time for the ceremony. The ceremony was complete with some amazing live music , which is always such a nice touch. Following the ceremony was a cocktail hour, where Kristen and Phil were able to chat with all of there guests as they had planned for the first look, bridal party and family photos to take place ahead of the ceremony. They were also able to enjoy the timeless and classic black and white photo booth provided by Our Lavish Guests.

Prior to the reception Kristen and Phil enjoyed a first dance in the wonderfully decorated reception hall. The lighting was dramatic and impactful, which really fit with the whole feel of the evening. The meal was delicious and fullowing the that the first dance and parent's dances took centre stage before the dance floor opened up to all of the guests and was packed all night. As the party was taking off Kristen and Phil both changed into their party shoes, and while Phil’s shoes were awesome Kristen’s shoes stole the show - they lit up and changed colour!

Kristen and Phil, your day was amazing! Thank you so much for including us.
