Nikka Yuko Wedding Photos on a Smoky Day [Jannette & Adrian]

Jannette & Adrian, Nikka Yuko wedding photos

Jannette and Adrian may be one of our most enthusiastic couples this year! They were both very excited about the photography planning from the very beginning and I loved Jannette’s level of involvement in all of her wedding details. Together we reached the decision of doing Nikka Yuko wedding photos for the majority of their portraits. As soon as they walked into the Japanese Gardens (the first time either of them had visited) and exclaimed, “Wow!” I knew we had chosen the perfect location!

The air was heavy with smoke that day but it didn’t get anyone’s spirits down. Everyone spent the day laughing and having fun, and the couple were so excited and willing to go along with every photo idea we had. This meant climbing over rocks in the water and spending a little extra time in a cathedral length veil that was struggling to survive the day!

We had a blast laughing with them all day and appreciated how much time they set aside for portraits, including an extra evening photography session around sunset.

Congratulations, Jannette and Adrian!

Jannette’s veil did not fare well that day! I believe Adrian was the first to step on it that day (just as the day was beginning at the ceremony!). A number of people sewed it back together after the first incident, but it just kept getting stepped on, including by Jannette herself!

It’s surprisingly rare that wedding rings fit together like this, so I did a little dance of joy when I put Jannette’s ring inside of Adrian’s.

After Nikka Yuko, we went downtown to get some photos around the post office building.

After Jannette and Adrian’s reception dinner at the Sandman Signature Hotel, we met back up with them for some evening portraits. We had hoped for sunset photos, but the heavy smoke that day made the sun completely vanish. Instead, we explored the hotel’s courtyard untill it was dark enough outside for sparklers.

Jannette was very excited to do a few sparkler photos, even if it meant a few less for their sparkler exit at the end of the night. Luckily Lethbridge wasn’t as windy as normal so we could pull these off!
