Lethbridge Research Centre Outdoor Wedding Ceremony [Krysty & Kole]

Krysty and Kole, Lethbridge Research Centre outdoor wedding ceremony

After Krysty styled her engagement session so beautifully, I was excited to see what she had in store for her wedding day! Her and Kole carefully planned out each beautiful detail of the day, from their lemonade stand to keep their guests refreshed at the ceremony to their 200 sparkler exit at the end of the evening. Continuing with the cycling theme, they featured gold-painted bicycle wheels as decorations, Kole wore cufflinks shaped like bikes, and they rented a tandem bicycle for their wedding photos.

Their Lethbridge Research Centre outdoor wedding ceremony could not have taken place on a nicer day! They had warm sunshine and no wind, while just a hint of the autumn colours were starting to appear. Their ceremony was so emotional with each of them fighting back tears through their huge grins.

Krysty’s attention to detail gave us so much creativity during portraits (they also rented a super cool large vintage couch!) and their wedding party made the day so much fun. We even took a detour to visit the Love and Records music festival. Kole and Krysty were just as photogenic as at their engagement session so they made our job pretty easy ;)

By reception time, everyone was ready to party. The dance floor was never empty and grandma danced more than anyone else there! Krysty and Kole totally nailed their first dance choreography after their many dance lessons… even though it was Krysty’s first time ever doing it in the wedding dress.

Congratulations, Krysty and Kole!

Norland Summer Wedding Portraits [Willene & Joel]

Willene and Joel, Norland Summer Wedding Portraits

We’re so lucky to be able to photograph so many of these dreamy, romantic weddings this year! Willene and Joel wanted the majority of their photos to be Norland summer wedding portraits so we started off with a first look at the Bed and Breakfast. Willene loves the gazebo at The Norland so we hid Joel away in there to greet his soon to be wife. The way they immediately melted into each other’s arms was so beautiful! They could barely look away from each other all day and were so sweet to each other.

Willene and Joel were smart to start photos in the morning. They managed to skip some of the hottest hours of the day in the comfort of the air conditioned church, and returned to portraits a little later in the day once the sun was lower. The heat made getting ice cream at Henderson Lake and dipping their feet in the lake that much better!

Congratulations, Willene and Joel!

Bethel Free Reformed Congregation Wedding Ceremony [Dan & Deb]

Dan & Deb, Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony

Dan and Deb held a beautiful fall wedding starting with their Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony in Monarch, bringing their families together.

Even though the wedding took place in late autumn, we were able to find a few splashes of colour at the University lake and their navy colour scheme looked fantastic against the warm fall hues.

Deb and Dan already share such an intimate bond after facing some hardships together and now uniting in marriage will bring them even closer together. I loved watching the connection they share and barely had to direct them as Dan stole a ton of kisses and Deb grinned ear to ear in his arms. They are such a great match, especially in how Dan’s goofiness plays off of Deb’s deadpan humour!

They finished off the evening by celebrating at the Coast Hotel in one of the ballrooms.

Congratulations, Dan and Deb!

Coast Hotel Indoor Lethbridge Wedding [Lane & Kani]

Lane & Kani, Coast Hotel indoor Lethbridge wedding

When Lane and Kani booked their Coast Hotel indoor Lethbridge wedding, they had no idea how lucky they’d be to have a roof over their ceremony! If the amount of rain that day was any indication, they will have an exceptionally lucky and happy marriage :)

The couple chose a number of western elements for their wedding theme, from Lane’s western formal wear with bolo tie to Kani’s gorgeous lacy high neckline on her dress. The rustic wood doors they had as a backdrop for their ceremony looked amazing re-purposed behind their head table later on, while the artwork in the Coast Lethbridge Hotel lobby perfectly complemented the rest of the theme. We may not have been able to go outside in the cold to find the autumn colors, but the lobby conveniently had them all right there for us!

Kani and Lane really focused on family for their wedding with both of their children playing important roles. They were truly meant to find each other and have found a perfect match.

Congratulations, Lane and Kani!

Charles & Leanne, Lethbridge wedding photos

Charles and Leanne held a beautiful autumn wedding split between Fort Macleod and Lethbridge this October. They were so easy to photograph, the way they just naturally fell into each others arms. Even with the distractions of all of their friends and family, they always gravitated to each other and I rarely saw them not holding hands or with an arm around each other. On top of that, their bridal party was so fun, happy, and energetic and made the day just fly by!

I met with them just after their ceremony at the Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Fort Macleod, and after finishing some family photos and stopping at the awesome old green bridge, we headed into Lethbridge for their portraits and reception at the Coast Hotel. It was such a beautiful sunny day, made even more wonderful by the fact it was supposed to rain and possibly snow that day!

They chose such great colors for their wedding and the autumn leaves really complemented the bridesmaid dresses. I really love their lemon centerpieces as an extra splash of yellow :)

Congratulations, Charles and Leanne! (more…)

family with two boys

Landon and Pearson are a year older since I last saw them, which means they’ve had a lot of time to perfect their strangle hug they like to do :) Melanie and Doug brought them in for the day and we had a beautiful afternoon for photos; luckily just enough snow melted that we got to see the crunchy autumn leaves again! The boys were just as full of energy as before (if not more) so they definitely keep their parents active. (more…)
