Nicole and Damian tied the knot on a chilly June day, the rain made an appearance but that didn’t stop this couple from having a great time and we were beyond thankful for a few breaks in the rain that we could get out and do some photos.
We were booked for a 6 hour package which covered from ceremony all the way to the first dances and into the reception. This is a great option if you are looking to save a little money but still have all the main events covered.
The ceremony was small and intimate with just family and then all the friends came out for the reception. The ceremony was supposed to be outside but with the rain they had to move it in to the Barn which was still beautiful. Nicole and Damian wrote their own vows which had them both tearing up and laughing with each other, I can’t say it enough how much I love when couple’s write their own vows. The awning in front of the barn made if a perfect cover for family photos and then the rain stopped just long enough for us to take some bridal portraits before the reception. The reception was full of fun, joy, and laughter - complete with a synchronized champagne popping and toast. The speeches had everyone laughing, complete with the mother of the bride telling a fun story involving one of Salt-N-Pepa’s popular songs.
Congratulations Nicole and Damian, thank you for trusting us with your big day!
Megan and Matthew tied the knot over the May long weekend at the Jumping Pound Community Hall. We didn’t get any snow but we did get lots of rain, but the rain didn’t ruin these two lovebirds big day. We were able to sneak outside for a few minutes when the rain let up and were able to gets some creative shots inside.
Matthew is from Scottish heritage and I loved all the Scottish details at the wedding. From the Bagpiper piping in the bride, to paying the piper, sharing a dram, the pinning of the tartan (Megan getting her own sash of the clan tartan) and the tartan table runners. The Jumping Pound Community Hall was the perfect rustic backdrop for a beautiful intimate wedding.
Rachel and Cort tied the knot at Heritage Park on a chilly May day. The weather may have been cooler than we all expected but that didn’t stop these lovebirds from having a great time on their big day. Rachel and Cort are such a fun and lovable couple, they are such a joy to be around. In fact by the time we were done shooting my face hurt from smiling so hard all day.
Heritage Park was the perfect backdrop for Rachel’s stunning vintage look and we were lucky to have the park pretty much all to ourselves. The ceremony was perfect in Gunn’s Dairy Barn, from the pianist playing while you walked in to the room to the rustic feel of the barn. It was a treat when Cort (who is a musician) wrote a song for his beautiful bride and performed it for the first time in front all of their closest family and friends.
For 2019 June will be our busiest month, we have a wedding booked almost every weekend - How exciting! Looking forward to all our June weddings made me think of Mike and Damara’s June wedding from last year.
Mike and Damara got married at the Trochu Arboretum and Gardens in Trochu, Alberta which is an adorable hidden gem! If you are ever in the area you should stop by for a visit, and there is even the sweetest cafe there. The location was just stunning and although there was rain in the forecast (And it was pouring our whole drive there) the sun came out the outdoor ceremony was absolutely beautiful. The ceremony was set up on the gazebo and was so romantic, Mike and Damara had wrote their own vows which is always a treat to hear. They had me tearing up one second and laughing the next. The gardens were stunning so we did all the family photos and bridal portraits there, as you can see it was a beautiful backdrop.
They had a family friend taking some photos during the getting ready and reception portions so had booked us for a shorter time. We have different packages to accommodate most brides and grooms needs but we are also able to put together custom quotes. We also take the time to work through your wedding timelines with you so you can just the most bang for your buck and not waste any time.
Lindsay had suggested Griffith Woods to us as a possible location for their engagement session and though we have never shot there we are always game for new locations. We are so happy that she suggested this location it was so beautiful, I can’t believe that we haven’t shot here before!
Dana and Lindsay originally wanted some winter photos, but unfortunately planning a wedding got in the way. We hope they are happy with these early spring photos which will have a nice contrast to their summer wedding photos. We always suggest as a nice option to do your engagement photos in a different season then your wedding as it makes for a nice variety - though we can’t really talk we did our engagement photos almost a year to the day before our wedding!
Dana and Lindsay loved the look of some of our nighttime off camera flash photos so we made sure to get a few after the sun had set. The first shot on this blog that Jared got has to be one of my favourite off camera flash shots yet.
Lindsay looked stunning, I am so impressed she did her own hair and make up. And though it was a bit colder than it looked outside these two were troopers.
Can’t wait for this awesome couple’s Mountain Wedding this summer.
