Helen Schuler Nature Centre Rooftop Wedding [Sinéad & Fay]

Friday, August 4th, 2023

Sinead & Fay, Helen Schuler Nature Centre rooftop wedding

Fay and Sinéad had been friends since childhood, but developed a deeper connection as they became adults. Their relationship has remained one of love and continued deep friendship, which was clear in every moment they were glued to each other during the wedding day. Their day celebrated nature and centred around their Helen Schuler Nature Centre rooftop wedding.

Just before the ceremony, they had the sweetest first look in the nature park. Instead of crying, they were so excited! Sinéad could not hide their awe at seeing Fay while Fay excitedly twirled to show off the excellent spin from their dress.

Fay went with a celestial theme for their look, having a star crown and a custom made dress featuring embroidered gold stars and moons. Sinéad embraced sunflowers and had them feature on their shirt, belt, tie, shoes, and floral headpiece. The two love playing DnD and worked their love for that into their details as well! The Round Table was a perfect reception location to reflect their favourite interests.

No queer wedding is complete without a little bit of rainbow, so they worked that into their wedding party colours. Everyone wore variations of green for a nature-centric vibe and had flower crowns, each with a colour of the rainbow. Sinéad’s youngest siblings got to embrace the full rainbow colours in their roles as flower girl and ring bearer.

Congratulations, Sinéad and Fay!


Chinook Lake Micro Wedding [Jensen & Devin]

Jensen & Devin, Chinook Lake micro wedding

When Jensen and Devin approached me about their wedding, all they knew was that it was going to be small and that they wanted it in the Crowsnest Pass. After a few questions they decided a view of Crowsnest Mountain was essential, so I gave them a few location options and other than that they put their complete trust in me! They decided on a Chinook Lake micro wedding and followed all of my advice like the best time of day to have it.

Jensen and Devin fell in love while at work, so the inn where they stayed during shifts was a natural choice for where to get ready. They had an emotional first look there before heading to the lake. Once at the lake, they quickly threw together a guerrilla ceremony in the parking lot to take advantage of the best view of Crowsnest Mountain across the water. The sunset that night was absolutely magical and they topped things off by the girls jumping in the lake.

Congratulations, Jensen and Devin, and thank you for letting me “plan” your wedding!


Castle Mountain Boho Wedding [Chantelle & Josh]

Chantelle & Josh, Castle Mountain Boho Wedding

Chantelle and Josh went with bold colours and rustic details for their Castle Mountain boho wedding. Chantelle’s gorgeous dress was custom made and it is a miracle she was able to get it in time… you may have heard something in the news related to that business! (She managed to pick it up only a week before the bankruptcy shutdown. So lucky!) Castle Mountain Resort was the perfect backdrop for their wedding to reflect their connection to the mountains.

The couple places so much importance on family and made sure they were an integral party of the day keeping all of their parents close during getting ready and having all of their siblings in the wedding party. A great comment during the toasts was that the perfect match for a man with only brothers was a woman with only sisters. ;)

Congratulations, Chantelle and Josh!


Miz City Church Wedding [Jessica & Bobby]

Wednesday, July 19th, 2023

Jessica & Bobby, Miz City Church wedding

Jessica and Bobby went with a Beauty and The Beast theme for their Miz City Church wedding ceremony and reception at the Polish Hall, with romantic red hues throughout the design. They got married surrounded by so many people who love, care for, and support them in their lives. Central to the day were their two children… this was just a day to make their family a little more official :)

After their ceremony at Miz City Church, we took everyone to the river bottom where Bobby brought his beloved Harley Davidson along for photos (and which conveniently matched their wedding colours). Their wedding party managed to pull together enough e-scooters to form Lethbridge’s best dressed biker gang. While this portion of the day was full of laughs, the reception also brought a lot of happy tears during speeches and the formal dances. It was such an emotional, beautiful day.

Congratulations, Jessica and Bobby!


Trinity Reformed Church Summer Wedding [Ashley and Carlo]

Thursday, July 6th, 2023

Ashley & Carlo, Trinity Reformed Church summer wedding

After Ashley and Carlo’s Trinity Reformed Church summer wedding ceremony, the couple had so much fun driving around the city with their wedding party. This was definitely not a serious group of people and they spent the whole day laughing, often even bent over in laughter!

Carlo and Ashley chose some beautiful locations for their photos. After a quick hop over to Pavan Park for family photos and then a visit with their dog Zoe, we headed to Nikka Yuko where they recreated the famous scene from Titanic a few times, photobombed each other, and everyone excitedly took a turn ringing the peace bell.

In the evening they held their reception at Paradise Canyon Golf Resort and the laughter continued with hilarious games (with just the right amount of embarrassment) during their reception program.

Congratulations, Ashley and Carlo!


Norland Wedding With Medieval Accents [Olivia & Marko]

Thursday, June 29th, 2023

Olivia & Marko, Norland wedding with medieval accents

Olivia and Marko managed to incorporate all of their passions into their wedding day. The end result was a Norland wedding with medieval accents that really made a statement! They had a knight escort that guests could battle, custom-made long swords, and the biggest highlight of all, their horses. The couple both arrived to the ceremony on horseback and rode off once they said their vows. (The horses did amazing at their roles aside from some poorly timed poop.)

Despite how grand everything about their wedding was, what really stood out were the simple details. Olivia and Marko show such kindness and love towards each other and their friends. Everyone spent the day being silly and laughing, while taking time for quiet moments when needed. The couple weren’t afraid to sneak out whenever they needed a moment alone and were rarely spotted away from each other even amongst their large guest list.

Congratulations, Olivia and Marko!
