Mount Norquay Banff Wedding Photos [Alena & Erik]

Erik and Alena, Mount Norquay Banff Wedding

Erik and Alena began planning their Mount Norquay Banff wedding well in advance. It was so exciting when the date finally arrived as this was our first time photographing a wedding in Banff!

The couple got ready in adjacent rooms at the Hidden Ridge Resort so we were able to easily bounce back and forth between them. While we were there they opened heart felt gifts from each other. They hadn’t even seen each other yet and the tears were starting!

Their ceremony took place outdoors at Norquay under the gorgeous mountain vistas. Everything was so beautiful there that we didn’t need to travel very far for their portraits! Wind blew smoke from the forest fires to line the mountain tops, but enough of the amazing view still peeked through the haze. The best spot to make use of this was when we rode the chairlift up to the Cliffhouse Bistro. Even with the smoke hugging the mountains, it was so scenic. While up there, Alena and Erik were serenaded by some tourists who gave their well wishes. :)

Alena and Erik are so perfect together. I loved watching the kind way they interact and the twinkling in their eyes when they look at each other. It was amazing for them to be surrounded by their dearest friends, especially since it’s all thanks to these friends that the two of them met in the first place!

Congratulations, Erik and Alena!

Southminster United Church Wedding Ceremony [Willianne & Steven]

Willianne and Steven, Southminster United Church Wedding Ceremony

After meeting in New Zealand, where Steven is originally from, he and Willianne chose Canada as the perfect place to have their wedding. The couple moved back to Alberta in the days leading up to the event and many of their friends and Steven’s family made the long trip to join them on this special day.

They began the morning with their Southminster United Church wedding ceremony. Since their wedding had hints of a country feel interspersed throughout the day, the church perfectly complemented it with its vintage wood detailing.

After a family lunch in Indian Battle Park, we set off for photos. We were lucky again to work with a couple who had such a romantic feel to their interactions and their entire day! Willianne and Steven radiate a peacefulness when they are in each other’s arms and were so sweet to watch.

Willianne chose her parents’ yard for their outdoor reception. What a gorgeous venue it made! Their beautifully landscaped yard in the country side was set up with a large decorated tent, different treat stations, and a BBQ dinner prepared on site. It was a perfect venue for mingling and laughter on such a nice summer evening.

Congratulations, Willianne and Steven!

Bayshore Inn Outdoor Summer Wedding [Nicole & Derek]

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Nicole and Derek, Bayshore Inn Outdoor Summer Wedding

Nicole and Derek planned for their beautiful day to take place in Waterton, a favourite travel destination for them, with a Bayshore Inn outdoor summer wedding. Their theme of “Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars” was gorgeously put together with star decorations, motifs of constellations, and a blue colour scheme to reflect the dusk sky.

They are both so easy going and able to laugh about things that go wrong. This came in handy with some of the memories they made that day! The mere 30 minutes it rained all fell on their outdoor ceremony, but with enough umbrellas and speedy vows, they didn’t have to compromise and move the wedding indoors. Just when they thought that was enough of a challenge, Nicole angered an entire colony of ants who got trapped in the lacy layers of her dress! She rolled with it and once we teamed up to clear them out, she was happy and ready to go for photos again :)

We spent the day with them and their fun wedding party visiting Red Rock Canyon and Cameron Lake. The free Canadian parks this year meant these beautiful locations were packed with tourists, but we used photography magic the best we could to make it look like Nicole and Derek were sharing private, intimate moments without a hundred eyes watching them!

Congratulations, Nicole and Derek!

Lethbridge Research Centre Wedding Portraits [Kim & Nathaniel]

Kim and Nathaniel, Lethbridge Research Centre wedding portraits

I know it’s early in the year, but I think Kim and Nathaniel may be one of my most passionate couples this wedding season. The way they looked at each other and snuck kisses even when the camera was down was so romantic!

We started out the day greeting them as they arrived at the NRC church in Lethbridge and followed Kim as she walked down the aisle to her soon to be husband. For photo locations we focused on Lethbridge Research Centre wedding portraits, which was stunningly green this time of year, followed by a quick visit to Henderson Lake and the old red firehall downtown.

Kim and Nathaniel were surrounded by so much happiness and laughter throughout the day. From Nathaniel’s friends’ dry humor to Kim’s sisters’ theatrics, we rarely stopped laughing!

Congratulations, Kim and Nathaniel!

p.s. Thank you to Melanie from Photo Expressions for being my second shooter for the day!

Waterton Lakes Lodge Winter Wedding [Jeremiah & Hannah]

Jeremiah and Hannah, Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding

I’m not sure I have ever seen two people as excited to get married as Hannah and Jeremiah! Their relationship was love at first sight and it shows in how passionate they are around each other. It was hard to spot them without giant smiles while in each other’s company all day.

They planned their big day as a mini-destination trip with a Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding, and man did they ever get winter! Waterton was covered in several feet of snow with a fresh snowfall just in time for their wedding. For once, it wasn’t windy there! Their wedding party were great sports to go out in that much snow and we all lasted pretty long out there considering the temperature.

Both their ceremony and reception were held indoors at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort and they had beautiful lights set up behind the head table stage that made a perfect backdrop for both portions of the day.

Congratulations, Jeremiah and Hannah!

Lethbridge Snowy Late Winter Wedding [Koos & Denise]

Koos & Denise, Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding

When Denise and Koos planned their wedding, I think they were expecting a little more spring than the winter wonderland they received! The tiffany blue and gray color theme they chose looked gorgeous for their Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding, offering a great compliment to the cool hues and bit of blue popping out of the sky.

After their ceremony at the Lethbridge Netherlands Reformed Congregation, we met with them and their family and luckily could keep everyone inside and warm for their portraits. Next we were off to the Broxburn Cafe who generously let us take a few photos inside to warm up. Everything about that location looked fantastic with the wedding colors and their rustic touches. The wedding party was so awesome about sticking it out in the cold and smiling despite the temperatures!

Denise and Koos were so lost in each other throughout the day that they hardly noticed the cold. Their embraces kept them warm and showed off how sweet and caring their relationship is.

At the end of the night we returned to their reception at the Lethbridge Lodge where they had both hilarious comedy sketches and moving presentations from the family.

Thanks to Melanie at Photo Expressions for assisting that day.

Congratulations, Koos and Denise!
