Lethbridge Spring Wedding Photos [Ben & Sheila]

Ben and Sheila, Lethbridge spring wedding photos

Sheila and Ben joined us for their Lethbridge spring wedding photos just after their ceremony on what could have been a rainy day… but as luck would have it, it stopped raining exactly just during our scheduled photo time!

I don’t think I have ever laughed this much from a wedding party before. They wore blankets as scarves, high fived a jogger in the coulees at every bend in his path, the girls ran up the coulees in heels, one groomsman managed to get a girl’s phone number downtown in between photos, and everything finished with endless airplane puns at the appropriate time (though most of those came from Cam once they got going!). Seeing as how I first knew Sheila and Ben for their hilarious piggy back rides, it shouldn’t have been a surprise that they are such a fun group!

We started our photos in the coulees, now a saturated green from all the rain, then headed downtown to some of the most beautiful old architecture. Sheila and Ben have such a romantic, deeply passionate look when they interact with each other and these locations really accented those feelings.

Our last location was a fun one: the airport hangar! Even though we ended up not needing to escape any rain, it was such a great spot to take photos.

Congratulations, Ben and Sheila!

Fort Macleod Spring Wedding [Henry & Kari]

Henry and Kari, Fort Macleod spring wedding

After an entire day of torrential downpour, the clouds cleared and left behind gorgeous, lush green colors for Kari and Henry’s Fort Macleod spring wedding! We met up with the couple for their first look in the Fort Macleod Wilderness Park, where Henry couldn’t stop smiling hearing Kari approaching him. Once they had a few extremely happy moments alone, we went down by the river and the landmark green bridge with their wedding party (with their family helping out controlling traffic!).

After family photos in the park and their early afternoon ceremony, we met back up with them at the Galt Museum for the rest of their photos. They are so happy together and their friends seemed absolutely excited for them, making our job so easy!

Congratulations, Kari and Henry!

Lethbridge Spring Blossom Wedding Photos [Jamie & Sylvia]

Jamie and Sylvia, Lethbridge spring blossom wedding photos

When we booked Sylvia and Jamie’s wedding for early April we didn’t expect we’d be taking Lethbridge spring blossom wedding photos in 27C! This gorgeous day made everyone so carefree and happy. It was beautiful to celebrate this new marriage with the start of a new spring!

After their ceremony and lunch, we met at the scenic Picture Butte Golf Club for family photos. The gorgeous summer-like day meant we had to avoid a few more golf balls than originally expected! The course was so accommodating and Sylvia (plus her brother sporting crutches) got to be escorted everywhere in a golf cart.

We made friends with a horse along the way to Lethbridge, then swung by the University park where we were surprised by the most gorgeous patch of fresh blossoms. We had sent the bridal party away by that point so that Jamie and Sylvia could share some romantic privacy in the beautiful flowers.

Congratulations, Sylvia and Jamie!

Paradise Canyon Winter Wedding [Rob & Kathy]

Rob & Kathy, Paradise Canyon winter wedding

When Kathy and Rob were planning their Paradise Canyon winter wedding, I’m sure they weren’t expecting spring rain! They were given a gorgeous February afternoon for the wedding which let Kathy really show off her stunning champagne lace dress outside.

They had their intimate ceremony indoors at Paradise Canyon with their only their children and parents in attendance. Their children, as well as Rob’s granddaughter, made up the wedding party to make everything that much more special.

Kathy, Rob, and their entire family were such happy people, completely joyous to be celebrating this day. Kathy and Rob are so in love and completely glow around each other.

Congratulations, Rob & Kathy!

Pincher Creek Bloomin’ Inn Winter Wedding [Mike & Lanna]

Thursday, January 21st, 2016

Lanna & Mike, Pincher Creek Bloomin' Inn winter wedding

Mike and Lanna’s Pincher Creek Bloomin’ Inn winter wedding was everything they hoped it would be thanks to the amazing snowy day we had! The Bloomin’ Inn was the perfect venue for the rustic theme they wanted, especially since it’s a working cattle ranch and Mike is also a cattle farmer. While the venue matched their lifestyle, they wanted a different landscape than they are used to seeing and chose to get married closer to the mountains, later having their reception at Castle Mountain.

The weather really delivered to give Lanna the snowy winter day she wanted. Thick snow hugged all of the tree branches, fluffy flakes fell, and not a trace of wind could be found (which is so unusual for Pincher Creek!).

I thought Lanna giggled a lot at their engagement photos, but her wedding day was much more exciting, eliciting endless laughter and huge grins from her! I love how emotional she is and how over the top happy they are together. This postive energy made it easy to hike through several feet of snow to find the prettiest spots on the ranch, and Lanna came prepared with her big boots.

After having their first look out in the snow, their guests started to arrive for their ceremony inside the Bloomin’ Inn.

Congratulations, Mike and Lanna!

Gate Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Graham & Andrea]

Andrea & Graham, Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding

I’m so happy Andrea and Graham kept me in mind so long for their photography and I was able to photograph their Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding! Despite the many years they have already been together, their love feels so fresh and new and I love how sweet and emotional they are together. It’s just too bad their kitty Henry couldn’t have been in the wedding party ;)

Their ceremony was held at The Gate in downtown Lethbridge, which was conveniently close to both their portrait and reception locations. They loved the modern, bright feel of Casa so we did most of the portraits inside the art building. All of the colors there worked perfect with the gray suits and purple accents in their wedding attire.

Afterwards they had their reception at Anton’s Ballroom in the Lethbridge Lodge, which was filled with gorgeous natural light on this warm day and, of course, so much joy from them and their guests :)

Congratulations, Graham and Andrea!
