Private Farm Wedding Ceremony in Lethbridge [Haley & Ryan]

Haley & Ryan, private farm wedding ceremony in Lethbridge

Haley and Ryan were met with a ton of challenges in planning their wedding. After a year long postponement due to COVID and having to change their outdoor venue from a local park to a private farm wedding ceremony, their wedding day brought a new challenge of rain! If rain on the wedding day is a sign of good luck, it seems even more fortunate that it would stop just as their ceremony began. Their location hosts did an amazing job running around drying off seats and it didn’t take long into the vows for their guests to be able to put their umbrellas away.

This year has been so fantastic for very personal wedding officiants. Ryan’s cousin performed their ceremony, which made it so much more special. Family played a vital role throughout the day as they also had all of their siblings and a number of cousins in their wedding party.

Portraits were done at Pavan Park where the group really got started partying, followed by their reception that night at the Italian Canadian Club. Everyone there was so happy and excited to celebrate the couple; as soon as the dance floor opened, it was packed!

Congratulations, Haley and Ryan!

Nikka Yuko Wedding Ceremony in Lethbridge [Lisa & Jim]

Lisa & Jim, Nikka Yuko wedding ceremony

Lisa and Jim planned an intimate Sunday wedding to celebrate with their immediate families. After a beautiful Nikka Yuko wedding ceremony, we did all of their portraits in the Japanese Garden. Between the heat and the smoke, tourists mostly stayed home and it was like they had the entire garden to themselves!

You only need to spend a few minutes with Lisa and Jim to get a feel for their great senses of humour. Once you meet their families, it’s obvious where they got it from! The day was filled with roaring laughter from everyone and lots of enthusiasm when the Elvis sunglasses were brought out. It’s so important to find someone who makes you laugh. Lisa and Jim absolutely have that covered.

Lisa and Jim were wonderful to spend the afternoon with. We really appreciated that they were willing to take full advantage of the garden’s lack of boundaries when it’s booked for weddings. We had them going even more off-road than normal and it was so worth it!

Congratulations, Lisa and Jim!

Outdoor Waterton Autumn Wedding [Emily & Cody]

Emily & Cody, outdoor Waterton autumn wedding

When Emily and Cody’s plans for a destination wedding in 2020 didn’t pan out, they kept the idea of a destination but made it a little more local! Their families joined them for an outdoor Waterton autumn wedding at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort. With perfect weather, they were able to have their ceremony outside on the resort’s green space. Emily’s dad performed the ceremony, making it extra special. It was such a joyful day for everyone involved. The couple weren’t the only ones smiling and laughing non-stop!

Their wedding was incredibly timed with the fall colours this year! Waterton was covered in rich yellows, reds, and oranges with still a bit of green left, and all of the new growth is so vibrant as it bounces back from the Kenow Fire. We took them to the entrance of the Bertha Lake hike to take full advantage of the colour. Emily and Cody were totally down for a small hike! They even received a few bonus congratulations from the last hikers of the season.

Congratulations, Emily and Cody!

Dwell Urban Venue Wedding Photography [Kit & Tristian]

Kit & Tristian, Dwell Urban Venue Wedding

Kit and Tristian managed to keep their wedding almost exactly as planned, other than having guests sit a little farther apart than they normally would! Their Dwell Urban Venue wedding was full of emotion and huge smiles (and social distancing).

Dwell was where Kit had originally wanted to propose to Tristian, but unfortunately it hadn’t been available for booking that day. It was therefore an obvious choice to be their wedding venue and totally matched the vibe of their wedding. After their morning ceremony, their guests were served treats while we took the couple to the Lethbridge river bottom for photos.

I had so many great opportunities to get adorable sneaky photos of Tristian and Kit. Anytime they thought they weren’t being photographed, they would continue holding hands, laughing together, or even trying out dance moves! I am so grateful to have followed them in this journey from proposal to union and to have seen their bond grow stronger in that time.

Congratulations, Kit & Tristian!

Henderson Lake Wedding Photos [Jody & Corné]

Jody & Corne, Henderson Lake Wedding Photos

Jody & Corné’s wedding took place on one of the warmest and most calm days this summer, fitting the mood of their laid back wedding. After their ceremony at the Lethbridge NRC Church, we met back up for portraits to make use of the beautiful weather. Their Henderson Lake wedding photos were a perfect place to start as their first date had taken place at the lake. We visited the bridge that Jody best remembered from that day. It was such a cute way to come full circle!

Their small wedding party were fantastic supports for the day. They picked up milkshakes for everyone when the sun got too hot and were constantly joking with the couple throughout photos. However, when they weren’t around, Jody & Corné had no trouble making each other laugh and smile!

Congratulations, Jody & Corné!

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

Thursday, June 6th, 2019

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!
