Hastings Lake Gardens Wedding [Sophia & Mark]

Sophia & Mark, Edmonton Hastings Lake wedding

I’ve known Sophia since high school and though we hadn’t seen each other since, I loved watching (via Facebook) how happy she has been for many years with Mark. The two of them are such a great duo and so perfect for each other, and they decided they should finally get married!

They started out the day with a Hastings Lake Gardens wedding ceremony, followed by photos around Sherwood Park and Edmonton, and finally their reception at Royal Mayfair Golf Club. Hastings Lake Gardens was such a gorgeous location filled with beautiful flowers at the main location and fun, rustic backdrops out back.

It poured during their ceremony but despite the weather, they both had the hugest grins and could not stop laughing in happiness! Their great senses of humor made their day beautiful and happy no matter what the weather did, and we even got lucky and had the rain stop in time for outdoor portraits.

Sophia pulled some strings and got us access to an airport runway as one of our locations. Sophia is a pilot so it was such a fitting spot! They kept that theme running throughout their day and did such an amazing job with the consistency. Even their invitations were flight tickets :)

Congratulations, Mark & Sophia!

This is the second wedding I’ve done this year that was crashed by a cat!

The girls prepared for the forecast in advance and were well stocked with rain boots.

Though he wasn’t in the wedding party, Sophia’s pilot friend and his wife spent the day with the group and we made sure to get some flight related photos of the two of them :)

Sophia and Mark did an amazing job carrying the flight and trip theme over into their reception. Absolutely everything was consistent with the theme, from the MC’s dialogue and wardrobe to the table assignments.
