Early Spring Lethbridge Wedding Photography [Melinda & Henk]

Melinda and Henk, early spring Lethbridge wedding photography

Earlier this year I had another opportunity to second shoot for the lovely Photography by Andrea Hulst when she invited me to Henk and Melinda’s wedding. We started the morning in Picture Butte while the couple got ready at their family homes and then joined them at the Netherlands Reformed Congregation for their ceremony. We spent the rest of the afternoon doing their early spring Lethbridge wedding photography around the river bottom parks, hunting for the first signs of spring that were starting to appear.

Congratulations, Melinda and Henk!

Norland Estate Wedding Album [Raiven & Jonathan]

Norland Historic Estate wedding album

Weddings at The Norland Historic Estate Venue are some of my favorite to put into albums! I was so excited to receive Raiven and Jonathan’s Norland Estate wedding album after they chose their final images. Their autumn wedding day featured gorgeous warm tones that went perfectly with a chocolate brown design, brown leather spine, and brown cloth bag. I really love how many full page spreads we were able to work into the design.

This is an example of the Modern+ Album, one of the albums offered specially for weddings.

Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding [Raiven & Jonathan]

Raiven & Jonathan, Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding

What a fantastic way to finish off the wedding season, with a Lethbridge Norland Estate autumn wedding! We got to spend the day at our favorite venue with Raiven and Jonathan, who are some of the nicest people I have met. They planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony amongst the freshly changed fall colours. I asked the rain very nicely to wait until we were done photos and it totally listened to me ;)

Raiven and Jonathan had such a laid back wedding. Raiven finished getting ready with plenty of time to have a first look with Jonathan then visit with their parents in the social room before the ceremony, and later on their reception felt more like a dinner party with family than a super formal event. With everything taking place at one location, they were able to take little breaks to spend time with loved ones in between photos.

I loved how Raiven constantly burst into laughter throughout the day and how Jonathan fought back tears at all of his first looks at her (her coming down the aisle was even more powerful than their first look!). They are so sweet together and their families are already so close, you couldn’t even tell which half of the couple they belonged to.

Congratulations, Raiven and Jonathan!

Gem of the West Wedding Ceremony [Kelti & Matthew]

Kelti & Matthew, Gem of the West wedding ceremony

Kelti and Matthew held their Gem of the West wedding ceremony on the cusp of autumn with the most important people in their lives in attendance. Kelti is heavily involved in the community so choosing a venue with so much historic value was such a perfect fit.

Kelti, Matthew, and all of their wedding party got ready at the Charles Street Suites, which is conveniently decorated in their wedding colours! They kept to separate floors so that they could share a first look on the staircase before heading out for photos.

Kelti and Matthew both give off so much positive energy and had us laughing all day. It was clear to see why they are so amazing together while watching them interact; they bounce that energy off each other nonstop and hardly ever quit smiling. They, their siblings, and their wedding party were constantly hilarious and never took anything too seriously – even when tackle chases gave way to ripped pants early in the day.

Congratulations, Kelti and Matthew!

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!

Intimate Southminster United Church Chapel Wedding [Mandy & Chris]

Mandy and Chris, Intimate Southminster United Church chapel wedding

Mandy and Chris had an intimate Southminster United Church chapel wedding in the evening. They included so many unique touches in their ceremony. In place of a sand ceremony, they poured their favorite gummy candies together with their boys, and at the end served their guests champagne in custom flutes with a toast to their friends and family.

After the ceremony, we went out for photos with them and their boys. The boys had so much fun exploring the coulees that their clean suits didn’t stay that way for very long! All it did was add to the realism of what daily life is like ;)

Despite the smokey air, Mandy and Chris were in amazing spirits and so elated to be in each other’s company. Mandy was constantly bursting into happy laughter whenever Chris held or kissed her!

Congratulations, Mandy and Chris!
