Crowsnest Pass Night Time Wedding [Desirée & Craig]

Desiree and Craig, Crowsnest Pass night time wedding

Desirée and Craig wanted to reflect their love for the live music scene by hosting a Crowsnest Pass night time wedding at The Greenhill Hotel in Blairmore. With Craig being a musician, their concert-themed wedding was perfect! In addition to closing out the evening with an open jam stage with their friends, their decorations were accented with records and musical notes.

I noticed back at their engagement session that they have such huge emotions around each other and the wedding day was no exception. Craig was so overwhelmed during the ceremony while Des acted as his rock, wiping away his tears. They later had this hilarious exchange…

Des: Are you okay to drive?
Craig: I haven’t been drinking…
Des: I mean emotionally!

One special touch in their wedding was how much they included Desirée’s son. Not only was he their ring bearer, but he joined them in a hug after the first kiss and had a special marriage certificate to take part in the signing of.

Congratulations, Desirée and Craig!

p.s. Special thanks to Nate at Rydography for filling in for Cam as second shooter / assistant!

Paradise Canyon Summer Wedding [Mark & Shelly]

Mark and Shelly, Paradise Canyon summer wedding

While most of our weddings this year had a huge chance of being rained out, Shelly and Mark’s Paradise Canyon summer wedding never once had that threat. Instead they had an amazing hot day for their outdoor ceremony at the golf course.

They chose to hold both their ceremony and reception at the scenic Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, overlooking the coulees. With Mark’s family travelling a far distance to attend the wedding, it was fitting they got to spend this special day in such a distinct Lethbridge landscape!

It was amazing seeing Shelly and Mark interact with each other. While they are normally very collected people, they couldn’t hold back their emotions at times like seeing each other down the aisle and sharing emotional speeches. I love photographing criers ;)

Congratulations, Mark and Shelly!

SpringBreak Flower Farm Wedding [Travis & Stephanie]

Travis & Stephanie, SpringBreak Flower Farm Wedding

When Stephanie and I rode the school bus together many years ago, I never imagined I’d one day be rolling around in the damp grass photographing her wedding! Her and Travis had a gorgeous SpringBreak Flower Farm wedding and though their ceremony was forced inside from the threat of rain, we were lucky to be able to do all their photos outside. We were especially lucky seeing as how the day before there were tornado warnings!

It was amazing watching the interactions they had with their friends and family as they got ready for the day. I can’t count the number of times people almost broke out in tears, but always managed to catch themselves just in time not to wreck their makeup ;)

One very special part of the day was the inclusion of their dogs (their babies, of course!) Lucky and Luka. The dogs even had a special part in the ceremony as they walked down the aisle inside of SpringBreak garden centre and stood alongside the wedding party.

This was such a happy day for them and their wedding party was so energetic and happy, so they never had a chance to stop laughing.

Congratulations, Travis and Stephanie!

Springbreak Summer Wedding [Colby & Allison]

Colby & Allison, Springbreak summer wedding

Colby and Allison held their Springbreak summer wedding at Hillcrest’s beautiful greenhouse at the base of the mountains. Allison looked like a Greek goddess in her one shoulder wedding dress. Her floor length veil was a perfect accent in the wind that is so common in the Crowsnest Pass, though we had a little less wind than expected so Cam helped out with the veil motion a few times ;)

The wedding party was so much fun to spend the afternoon with as everyone was having such a great time, plus this was my first time having one of my cousins included! Colby and Allison have already been together for a few years and the deep connection and friendship they share was obvious.

The Springbreak Flower Farm was a stunning venue for the whole day, starting with Allison and the girls getting ready at the bed and breakfast and finishing with their greenhouse ceremony and reception. Her and Colby planned their day so their guests could go straight to the party, with all of their photos taking place earlier in the day and their ceremony in the evening. Unfortunately their planned outdoor ceremony was met with rain, but inside the greenhouse was just as beautiful with all of the flowers and lights.

We were so happy that the bride and groom set aside time for evening portraits during their reception. Springbreak had such pretty spots tucked away in it!

Congratulations, Colby and Allison!

Mountain Summer Wedding [Drew and Alyssa]

Drew and Alyssa, mountain Alberta summer wedding photos

Alyssa and Drew had such a beautiful wedding in Lethbridge surrounded by so much love from their families.

The couple originally wanted a mountain summer wedding but with so many relatives who couldn’t make the trip, they decided to keep the party in Lethbridge and just drive out to the mountains for their portraits in the afternoon. After a beautiful drive out to the Crowsnest Pass, Drew and Alyssa got to spend time in the forest and under the mountains, giving them the landscapes they love so much.

Alyssa is a very talented country singer so it was a natural fit for their wedding to have country-inspired themes and involve lots of music! Alyssa even performed at her own reception, which was such a fun touch. I’m so glad we could bring one of her guitars out for photos!

Congratulations, Drew & Alyssa!

Waterton Destination Wedding [Renzo & Erin]

Renzo and Erin, Waterton Destination Wedding

This was a wedding I’ve been looking forward to for a long time! Erin and Renzo first contacted me early last year all the way from San Diego as they planned their gorgeous Waterton destination wedding. I was even more excited when I met them on their planning visit to Canada – they were so pumped about their wedding and wanted to do their photos before the ceremony so everyone would look their best, not to mention how gorgeous they both are!

The day could not have been more perfect. Waterton was less crowded than normal and the heatwave broke for a day (though the church was still pretty warm!). Their large bridal party was so much fun to work with and they had the sweetest, most helpful families. I’m so happy we got to steal Erin and Renzo away for some early evening photos, which are by far my favorite of the day. With the ceremony and dinner finished they finally had a chance to relax and were absolutely beaming at each other.

It was so great getting to spend their reception with them; it ended up being one of the most fun and energetic ones I’ve ever photographed! The dance floor was constantly full all night long and all of their guests were just so happy.

Congratulations, Erin and Renzo! (more…)
