Readymade Community Centre Summer Wedding [Adam & Dianne]

Dianne and Adam, Readymade Community Centre Summer Wedding

Adam and Dianne love the landscape around where they grew up and incorporated it into their Readymade Community Centre summer wedding. All of the rustic walls and buildings around Dianne’s family farm made for great photo backdrops, and her parents house with grand staircase was the perfect spot to have their first look.

Just around the corner from the farm are Readymade and Stafford Park so we didn’t have to go far (we only had to carefully photograph around the people tubing at the lake!). Just after photos, they had their ceremony at the Canadian Reformed Church in Coaldale.

Dianne looked so elegant in her lace wedding dress with a low back and her beautiful auburn hair let down. Adam could not stop grinning at her! He continued stealing glances at her through the whole ceremony even though they had spent the last three hours lovingly looking at each other for photos. In their reception program, they described Adam as “very tall” and Dianne as “not so tall” – so during portraits we made Adam be the one to bridge the height distance to kiss his gorgeous bride ;)

Congratulations, Dianne and Adam!

Heritage Hall Autumn Wedding Ceremony [Trent & Dominika]

Trent & Dominika, Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony

Trent and Dominika planned a Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony and reception and worked beautiful fall colours into their wardrobe, flowers, and décor. Despite a morning of rain, the day turned beautiful right after they said their vows and we were able to go find all the autumn colours they had hoped for.

As Trent’s father so perfectly put it during speeches: “As long as you two keep giggling together all the time, you can get through anything.” I don’t think that Trent and Dominika will ever tire of each other’s company with how much they joke and make each other laugh. They were hilarious and since their first date involved a visit to a liquor store, we even stopped by that same store for a few silly photos on the way back.

Their daughters were so adorable in their little white dresses and probably had more fun than anyone else with how much they danced at the reception! The cupcakes definitely helped them make it through the long day they had :)

Congratulations, Trent and Dominika!

Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding [Robert & Carla]

Robert and Carla, Waterton Bayshore Inn Autumn Wedding

Robert and Carla made sure family played a prominent part in their Waterton Bayshore Inn autumn wedding. Their wedding party was mostly made up of siblings, their small guest count gave them more time to visit with family members, and most importantly, their adorable girls were a highlight of the day and got to enjoy their own special dance with Rob in the evening. They made it obvious what their priorities are in their life together :)

They chose such a gorgeous day at the end of the season in Waterton to hold their wedding. Their orange and red colour scheme perfectly complemented the fall colours and the dwindling tourists meant we got to visit a mostly empty Red Rock Canyon!

Carla and Robert were a joy to work with. They are madly in love and busted out hilarious jokes every few minutes. Their wedding party members were so warm and generous too, so it really must run in the family.

Congratulations, Robert and Carla!

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!

Waterton United Church Wedding [Jared & Jessica]

Jessica & Jared, Waterton United Church wedding

Jared and Jessica put together the perfect wedding they had dreamed of: a romantic mountain getaway that focused on their families coming together and the amazing connection they share. They even opted out of having a wedding party so they could spend more time and attention on their families.

We started the day at their Waterton United Church wedding, which was a perfect mix of sweet, touching moments and their nieces and nephews being adorable.

After the ceremony, we headed to the Prince of Wales Hotel (their favorite viewpoint in the park) for all of their portraits. Both Jessica and Jared were bursting with excitement all day and so full of joy to be marrying their soul mates. Even in the freezing wind, they couldn’t stop grinning!

They finished off their day with a private dinner (and a good shot of whiskey!) at the Waterton Lakes Lodge.

Congratulations, Jessica and Jared!

Coaldale Winter Wedding [Kyle & Annelies]

Annelies & Kyle, Coaldale winter wedding

After standing beside her friend earlier this year, it was now time for Annelies’s Coaldale winter wedding with her love Kyle!

Their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church was very special in that it was performed by Annelies’s grandfather, and even more so that she is the first of his grandchildren to get married! It added such a personal touch to be able to include their family so intimately.

Most of their details were created by people involved in the wedding, but mostly by Annelies who designed all of the paper items and created the bouquets by hand. She has so much talent and it’s not surprising she is a graphic designer.

We had the perfect winter weather for their wedding. November can be quite unpredictable, but we had a gorgeous mix of snow on the ground and enough sunshine to keep them warm when we went out for photos in Lethbridge. Their wedding party was so fun and energetic and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the lineup.

Annelies and Kyle are such a sweet and romantic couple and they really accented that feel with their styling of blush pink, wine, bow ties, and cardigans.

Congratulations, Kyle and Annelies!
