Autumn Galt Museum Wedding [Greg & Lasca]

Lasca & Greg, autumn Galt Museum wedding photos

We loved finally starting out the fall season with Greg and Lasca’s autumn Galt Museum wedding here in Lethbridge. They chose a rustic theme with blues and whites that looked great against the yellow outside.

After their ceremony in the Galt Museum’s viewing gallery, we were joined outside by their families. Lasca comes from a large family of brothers so it was a really big deal their only sister got married!

We stuck around the museum area while they had fun with their wedding party and their cute little dog Ketta gave them lots of kisses, then headed over to the west side to make use of the changing leaves. I loved watching when Greg and Lasca let loose and acted silly around each other (including a stick sword fight) and everyone was proud of how well Greg did in the spotlight all day when he’s quite shy :)

Congratulations, Lasca and Greg!

Elegant Calgary Catholic Wedding [Evan & Emily]

Evan & Emily, elegant Calgary Catholic wedding photos

It’s impossible to talk about Evan and Emily’s wedding without first addressing all the crazy little things that went wrong that day. Between rain, incorrect church readings, and car accidents (to only name a few), each new thing that came up had us shaking our heads and feeling piling sympathy for this sweet couple. However, what mattered in the end was that the overall love and happiness of the day overpowered the trivial things and they still had such a beautiful, elegant Calgary Catholic wedding.

Every time Emily looked at Evan, you could see her stress melt away as she shot him her beaming smile. I quickly learned that asking them to look serious in any photos was a challenge ;) They are so supportive of each other and true equals in their relationship.

We already knew the kindness and warmth of Evan’s family from when we photographed his sister’s wedding several years ago, but Emily’s family easily matched that hospitality! (Though the long running joke through the reception is that Evan’s family wins in the quantity of happy tears they cry.)

Congratulations, Evan and Emily!

Racehorse Creek Outdoor Wedding [Freddie & Stef]

Freddie & Stef, Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding

Freddie and Stef wanted their laid-back attitudes and love of the outdoors to come through when planning their big day and fittingly decided on a Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding at one of their favorite camping and dirt biking locations.

They chose a gorgeous clearing in the Racehorse Creek area just north of the Crowsnest Pass where all of their friends and family could camp for the weekend celebrations. Of course they brought along all of their “toys” and even included their dirt bikes in the wedding :)

Stef was jaw-dropping in her corseted dress. All of the tears and laughter shared between her and Freddie throughout the day made it so obvious how in love they are.

Their day brought a sampling of all of Alberta’s weather: smoke, sun, wind, rain, and concluding with a dramatic sunset so beautiful that they quickly changed back into their wedding clothes to take advantage of it.

Congratulations, Freddie and Stef!

Picture Butte Country-Inspired Wedding [Jeremy & Emily]

Jeremy & Emily, Picture Butte country-inspired wedding

We were thrilled to join Jeremy and Emily for the afternoon for their Picture Butte country-inspired wedding. They rocked a classic wardrobe in the beautiful rustic locations we visited.

We met up with Emily and Jeremy just after their family lunch. Jeremy’s family home was gorgeous and had amazing views of the coulees in Picture Butte, made even more dreamy with the smoke that hung in the air. The bridesmaid dresses and bouquets offered a stunning pop of color against all of the subdued tones from the smoke.

Their bridal party members all brought along their partners (some of whom were also in the bridal party) so everyone had fun as we drove around to the photo spots, especially when we reached the playground and the silliness came out.

Emily and Jeremy were so romantic around each other and so in love. When Jeremy said it was getting hard to keep smiling, we had him look at Emily and everyone exclaimed that it was easy now! ;)

Congratulations, Jeremy and Emily!

Derek & Tara-Lee, Coaldale farm wedding photos

Derek and Tara-Lee held a beautiful Coaldale farm wedding this summer, making use of some amazing country locations in the area. The rustic aesthetic was offset with classic touches of lace and soft pink.

After the girls got ready at Tara-Lee’s house (including makeup done by Tara-Lee’s sister, Karina), they headed to the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church for the ceremony. Between all the tears and Tara-Lee never being able to hold back her huge grin, there was so much happy energy there!

They both looked stunning and are always so blissful in each others presence. We had such a laid back day with them while everyone joked around and had fun at all the farms we visited.

Congratulations, Derek & Tara-Lee!

Waterton Community Center Wedding [Garrett & Heather]

Garrett & Heather, Waterton Community Center wedding

Garrett and Heather held a summer Waterton Community Center wedding on the lawn below the mountains. It was a beautiful day for their intimate wedding and we managed to keep the day calm by avoiding all of the crowds in the park.

In the evening we returned to the Waterton Community Center for their reception, which was deliciously catered by The Great Canadian Barn Dance.

Heather and Garrett are such happy and silly people (at one point they complained how hard it was when I asked them to be serious for a photo!) that you couldn’t help but feel joyous being around them all day. They just couldn’t stop smiling! It was obvious where they inherit these traits from… everyone in their families was so warm and inviting and had great senses of humor.

Congratulations, Garrett & Heather!
