Bethel Free Reformed Congregation Wedding Ceremony [Dan & Deb]

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Dan & Deb, Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony

Dan and Deb held a beautiful fall wedding starting with their Bethel Free Reformed Congregation wedding ceremony in Monarch, bringing their families together.

Even though the wedding took place in late autumn, we were able to find a few splashes of colour at the University lake and their navy colour scheme looked fantastic against the warm fall hues.

Deb and Dan already share such an intimate bond after facing some hardships together and now uniting in marriage will bring them even closer together. I loved watching the connection they share and barely had to direct them as Dan stole a ton of kisses and Deb grinned ear to ear in his arms. They are such a great match, especially in how Dan’s goofiness plays off of Deb’s deadpan humour!

They finished off the evening by celebrating at the Coast Hotel in one of the ballrooms.

Congratulations, Dan and Deb!

Waterton United Church Wedding [Jared & Jessica]

Jessica & Jared, Waterton United Church wedding

Jared and Jessica put together the perfect wedding they had dreamed of: a romantic mountain getaway that focused on their families coming together and the amazing connection they share. They even opted out of having a wedding party so they could spend more time and attention on their families.

We started the day at their Waterton United Church wedding, which was a perfect mix of sweet, touching moments and their nieces and nephews being adorable.

After the ceremony, we headed to the Prince of Wales Hotel (their favorite viewpoint in the park) for all of their portraits. Both Jessica and Jared were bursting with excitement all day and so full of joy to be marrying their soul mates. Even in the freezing wind, they couldn’t stop grinning!

They finished off their day with a private dinner (and a good shot of whiskey!) at the Waterton Lakes Lodge.

Congratulations, Jessica and Jared!

Coaldale Winter Wedding [Kyle & Annelies]

Annelies & Kyle, Coaldale winter wedding

After standing beside her friend earlier this year, it was now time for Annelies’s Coaldale winter wedding with her love Kyle!

Their ceremony at the Coaldale Canadian Reformed Church was very special in that it was performed by Annelies’s grandfather, and even more so that she is the first of his grandchildren to get married! It added such a personal touch to be able to include their family so intimately.

Most of their details were created by people involved in the wedding, but mostly by Annelies who designed all of the paper items and created the bouquets by hand. She has so much talent and it’s not surprising she is a graphic designer.

We had the perfect winter weather for their wedding. November can be quite unpredictable, but we had a gorgeous mix of snow on the ground and enough sunshine to keep them warm when we went out for photos in Lethbridge. Their wedding party was so fun and energetic and it was great to see a few familiar faces in the lineup.

Annelies and Kyle are such a sweet and romantic couple and they really accented that feel with their styling of blush pink, wine, bow ties, and cardigans.

Congratulations, Kyle and Annelies!

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!

Park Lake Wedding Photos [William & Becky]

William & Becky, Park Lake wedding photos

William and Becky had a beautiful early autumn wedding around their home turf in Southern Alberta. I had already done photos with them a couple times before so I knew how fun they were before we even started. They are such naturals in front of the camera and so crazy in love. It’s been amazing to see how much more obvious their love has become since I first met them in the winter!

After getting ready in Nobleford, we headed over to the Bethel Free Reformed Church in Monarch for their ceremony and wedding service. For their portraits I was excited to finally get to go to the Lethbridge Corn Maze, which has been on my wedding photography bucket list for a while ;) Their time spent not getting lost in the maze was followed by Park Lake wedding photos. We had already done their engagement photos there but with the new autumn colors, it looked like a brand new location and worked perfectly with the yellow bridesmaid dresses.

Congratulations, Wink and Becky!

Intimate Milk River Wedding [Chad & Samantha]

Samantha & Chad, intimate Milk River wedding

After already sharing so much of their life together, Chad and Samantha decided to make it official with an intimate Milk River wedding. Traveling from Calgary with their beautiful girls, they chose Milk River for its proximity to family and small town charm even though neither of them are originally from there. They ended up with a beautiful day where the big, blue rural Alberta skies opened up after weeks of rain and smoke.

They started out their day with a short ceremony at St. Paul’s United Church with only their closest family and friends in attendance. The church had a beautiful courtyard so we mainly stayed there, but had a chance to drive out a bit for views of fields and mountains.

Samantha and Chad are so sweet, which came across in every single interaction with them. They are both so bubbly and happy, it’s clear to see how they are still such a perfect match after all these years together.

Congratulations, Chad and Samantha!
