Waterton Sunset Anniversary Photos [Haley & Stephen]

Waterton sunset anniversary photos

Haley contacted me with a great vision for Waterton sunset anniversary photos. She and Stephen wanted to celebrate their anniversary trip to Waterton by recreating some of their wedding photos! They dressed very similar to their wedding day with one exception: Haley’s original wedding dress had been stolen during a break-in, and she managed to track down a nearly identical dress. Luckily they scheduled just days before the smoke got bad so we were able to get amazing views of the mountains with only a little bit of haze. After we finished in the town (which has a crazy early sunset thanks to the mountains!) we drove to the lookout to take full advantage of the setting sun.

Bayshore Inn Ceremony and Readymade Wedding Reception [Sarah & Matthew]

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

Sarah and Matthew, Bayshore Inn Ceremony and Readymade Wedding Reception

Matthew wanted to give his bride-to-be Sarah a proper tour of his home town area when they travelled here for their wedding. They hit the best of everything with a Bayshore Inn ceremony and Readymade wedding reception, with getting ready photos in Lethbridge. Arriving for their photos in Waterton was Sarah’s first ever visit to the national park! We all wished for less smoke so Sarah could see how amazing the mountains are, but could catch just enough of them fading into the horizon.

Sarah looked stunning with a classic, romantic look, and Matthew wore his military formal wear. They looked amazing together. Following us throughout the day was their daughter who had so much fun that she couldn’t stop shouting “Yay!”. It was contagious and made everyone around her also exclaim with joy! Sarah and Matthew could not stop grinning at each other and their daughter all day.

After a first look at Cameron Falls, portraits at the Prince of Wales, and an outdoor ceremony at the Bayshore Inn lawn, they and their guests headed closer to home. Their fun reception was held at the Readymade hall where we were joined by all of the guests who weren’t able to make it to Waterton but still wanted to help them celebrate.

Congratulations, Sarah and Matthew!

Waterton mid-week wedding portraits

Ruth and Cory planned Waterton mid-week wedding portraits just before their beautiful ceremony under the mountains. I met with them and their children at Cameron Falls a few hours before their ceremony. Everyone looked amazing! They chose a romantic red theme for their wedding day with tons of gorgeous lace accents. Ruth brought along a lace parasol, wore beautiful white lace gloves, and had a stunning long drape-over veil. Everyone was so happy and excited waiting for the ceremony to come!

Congratulations, Ruth and Cory!

Waterton Community Hall Outdoor Wedding Ceremony [Jessica & Jordan]

Jessica and Jordan, Waterton Community Hall outdoor wedding ceremony

Everything came together so beautifully for Jessica and Jordan’s Waterton Community Hall outdoor wedding ceremony! The couple chose Waterton as their wedding destination after falling in love with the beauty of the national park. The fire damage hit the treeline after they had already set their date, and construction near their wedding venue in the weeks leading up to the date had them worried. It’s almost as though the town finished all the construction just for them! All worries melted away as they were met with a beautiful, sunny day. Even the wild flowers were still in bloom and matched their purple wedding colours.

Jessica and Jordan incorporated so many fun details into their wedding day! They had enough vintage cars to go around that no one in the wedding party had to go in a boring modern ride. Their two adorable dogs also joined in some of the festivities. They and their wedding party had so much fun cruising around the town. We had such a blast with them!

Congratulations, Jessica and Jordan!

Waterton Beachside Wedding Ceremony [Natalie & Scott]

Natalie and Scott, Waterton beachside wedding ceremony

Natalie returned to her family’s home area for her Waterton beachside wedding ceremony to Scott. This beautiful area has always been important to her and she wanted to share it with the love of her life!

Every detail of their day had such personal touches. The wedding date took place on their dating anniversary. Natalie’s father performed the ceremony. Only their immediate families were present to keep the wedding intimate. Scott and Natalie put together her bridal bouquet themselves as a pre-wedding project.

Even in the crazy gusts of wind, Natalie and Scott were full of joy. They could barely make it more than a few minutes without bursting into fits of laughter in each other’s company. They have found such perfect partners in each other.

Congratulations, Natalie and Scott!

Prince of Wales Wedding Ceremony in Waterton [Jennifer & Scott]

Thursday, June 28th, 2018

Jennifer and Scott, Prince of Wales wedding ceremony

It’s amazing to live so close to such a beautiful national park. While most of my wedding clients who get married in Waterton live nearby or at least within Alberta, we have a few each year who make a long journey to take in the beauty of the mountains. Jennifer and Scott travelled all the way from the United States to have their wedding here!

With the threat of rain storms looming overhead, they decided on an indoor Prince of Wales wedding ceremony rather than use the bluff overlooking the lakes. Their ceremony took place in the morning so there were very few tourists in the hotel spying on the event!

Jennifer and Scott had their children stand up with them as their wedding party and only travelled with immediate family, making their beautiful wedding that much more intimate. We had to hold off on family photos because what started as one person in happy tears quickly spread to half of their guests!

We were excited to discover how easy going Scott and Jennifer were. No rain could stop them from getting photos in the beautiful Waterton landscape! They were even willing to brave the rain without the umbrella, which was quickly handed in and out of the photos. Their amazing attitudes let us visit Cameron Falls, the fields full of wild flowers, and the burned trees at the edge of town (almost all in the rain). Despite the cold, they were still full of smiles at each other and lost in each other’s embrace.

Congratulations, Jennifer and Scott!
