Canadian Reformed Church Winter Wedding [Meaghan & James]

Thursday, February 24th, 2022

Meaghan & James, Canadian Reformed Church winter wedding

Meaghan and James made their Canadian Reformed Church winter wedding extra personal by including family members in all of the important parts of the day. James’ older brother performed their ceremony, which made it more special but also meant a few hilarious jabs at James were included. Their twin nephews did an amazing job as ring bearers, and siblings were included in their wedding party so they could spend all day together. Meaghan’s little sister may be one of the youngest maid of honours we’ve had, and she did an amazing job helping her sister!

Both of them were a little nervous excited in the morning, but that all melted away once they saw each other at the church. James absolutely lit up once Meaghan and her father came through the doors. He looked like he was fighting back exclaiming, “Wow!” out loud. :)

After weeks of little to no snow, their wedding day ended up being one of those rare days the snow came down! Meaghan and James were able to get the winter wedding they had hoped for (who would have thought February would be so warm?). Luckily the sun was also out and the bridesmaids all had shawls. We appreciate everyone freezing to get such great photos in the river bottom :)

Congratulations, Meaghan and James!

Drumheller Bridal Prep Photography [Nika & Her Bridesmaids]

Drumheller bridal prep photography

Nika and Amir had to change their wedding plans a few times to get exactly what they wanted despite COVID restrictions, and finally settled on Alberta’s badlands as the perfect spot! I got to meet Nika during her Drumheller bridal prep photography, and she picked such a beautiful space for it. They had booked an Airbnb so they and their entire wedding party would have enough room to get ready together.

We settled in the master bathroom for the perfect combination of aesthetics and functionality. Nika’s maid of honour was extraordinary in her role and even did Nika’s hair and makeup!

Norland Estate Winter Wedding at Christmas [Kendra & DJ]

Kendra & DJ, Norland Estate winter wedding at Christmas

Kendra and DJ already have a family together, but their Norland Estate winter wedding was a party to make it official! They invited their closest family and friends and themed the event around the Christmas holidays. Kendra hoped for snow but in true Lethbridge fashion we got a wind warning instead. In the end this worked to our advantage because it gave us the most beautiful golden hour!

Despite the wind, everyone was great about taking photos outside. There was even enough snow left for Kendra’s wintery wishes! Once twilight hit, we went back out for a few more photos. The gazebo is so beautifully lit at night and the Norland looks incredible decked out for Christmas.

Their daughter Addison had an absolute blast all day and didn’t even need a nap break! Kendra and DJ made sure a lot of the day focused on her. After she spent the afternoon getting ready with her parents, she was ready to greet all of their guests and then take part in photos. She didn’t mind the wind one bit! At dinner, she got to sit right between her mom and dad at the head table.

It was so great to spend another day with this sweet family (we also did Kendra’s brother’s wedding).

Congratulations, Kendra and DJ!

Pincher Creek Wedding Album Design [Dixie & Trevor]

Pincher Creek wedding album

Designing this Pincher Creek wedding album meant I got to relive how fun Dixie and Trevor’s wedding was! This Modern+ Album came with the wedding package they chose, and they had me choose the photos that go in it. For their reception, I designed with more of a collage style because they had way too many hilarious and emotional moments to choose from, like their garter removal prank or their huge dance circle with every guest up on the floor.

The charcoal leather binding and slate coloured album bag were a perfect complement to the silver colours in their wedding palette.

Italian Canadian Centre Autumn Wedding [Nicole & Brandon]

Brandon & Nicole, Italian Canadian Centre autumn wedding

Nicole and Brandon’s Italian Canadian Centre autumn wedding was well worth the wait! Their wedding planning started pre-COVID and they were finally able to have the wedding they wanted with all of their family and friends there.

Back in high school, they had made a bet with a staff member that if they got married, she would come to the wedding. That bet came to fruition, and they had her perform the marriage ceremony! Their vows were full of laughter and happy tears, especially when they first saw each other in the aisle. All of Brandon’s tension melted away when he had his first look at Nicole, and she was overcome with very teary smiles.

They booked a fantastic car to get around for their photos, a classic Lincoln from 94 Cabs, which made for amazing photos. This was the very first wedding the car has been used for since it was restored, so it was quite an honour to try it out. We had such a great time out for photos with them, especially thanks to their hilarious friends who had no shortage of great poses and jokes to make the couple laugh.

Congratulations, Nicole and Brandon!

p.s. A huge thank you to Matthew from Aspire Photography who helped me out when Cam wasn’t feeling well!
