Lethbridge Winter Wedding [Jennifer & David]

Lethbridge winter wedding

This post is a little late, but Lorelei had first dibs on showing the photos :)

Last December I had the pleasure of second shooting for Lorelei Hoffarth for Jennifer and David’s snowy Lethbridge winter wedding. It was extremely cold that day so we mostly stuck indoors with Casa, their church, and their reception venue, but at the end there were brave enough to head out with their fur shawls for a few snow pictures too!

I started out the day with the boys at Casa, and soon Lorelei and the girls joined us.

Sunny Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Josh & Cheryl]

Cheryl & Josh, sunny Lethbridge autumn wedding

It’s a little harsh to start your wedding day needing an EpiPen, but Cheryl and Josh are tough and had an awesome day despite the rocky beginning (plus it sure adds to the quirky memories of the day!). We had perfect weather for a sunny Lethbridge autumn wedding, with beautiful fall colors to make their vivid wedding party outfits really pop.

After the girls got ready, we headed over to the Immanuel Lutheran Church on the west side where the minister worked awesome Star Wars jokes into the ceremony. The west side had so many amazing locations this autumn that we didn’t even have to leave it until it was time to go to their reception at the Italian Canadian Club :)

There were a few wedding party crossovers from previous weddings and as usual, they were such a fun group! Cheryl and Josh are amazing in front of the camera and you can tell how madly in love they are every moment they are together.

Congratulations, Josh & Cheryl!

Elegant Crowsnest Pass Wedding [Jeff & Kayla]

Kayla & Jeff, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding

Kayla and Jeff had a beautiful, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding at the end of summer with so many well thought out details! The hints of pink, gold, and white throughout their day added perfect touches and I especially loved their matching balloons (a special thanks to the bridesmaids for inflating those before the ceremony!).

I love seeing how happy Kayla and Jeff are around each other and they were just as cuddly as at their winter engagement session, even though they didn’t need to keep each other warm this time!

They started their day with a ceremony at the Catholic Church in Blairmore and followed with a reception at the Coleman Sportsplex. They did a gorgeous job working their pink and gold colors into the decorations and candy/sundae bar, and you couldn’t recognize the venue as being a curling arena!

Congratulations, Kayla & Jeff!

Mountain Summer Wedding [Drew and Alyssa]

Drew and Alyssa, mountain Alberta summer wedding photos

Alyssa and Drew had such a beautiful wedding in Lethbridge surrounded by so much love from their families.

The couple originally wanted a mountain summer wedding but with so many relatives who couldn’t make the trip, they decided to keep the party in Lethbridge and just drive out to the mountains for their portraits in the afternoon. After a beautiful drive out to the Crowsnest Pass, Drew and Alyssa got to spend time in the forest and under the mountains, giving them the landscapes they love so much.

Alyssa is a very talented country singer so it was a natural fit for their wedding to have country-inspired themes and involve lots of music! Alyssa even performed at her own reception, which was such a fun touch. I’m so glad we could bring one of her guitars out for photos!

Congratulations, Drew & Alyssa!

Lethbridge Rural Summer Wedding [Alyson & Jordan]

Jordan & Alyson, Lethbridge rural wedding

Jordan and Alyson had such a beautiful Lethbridge rural themed summer wedding with touches of wheat and wild flowers to complement all of the other vintage and lace details they included.

They had their afternoon wedding ceremony at Marantha Church in West Lethbridge. The two of them were so amazing to watch. They could not stop smiling at each other and laughing with joy through the whole ceremony (plus a bit of happy crying, of course).

For photos, they chose such a personal place: their own farm. The farm had such beautiful old buildings and lush green wild grass, making it such a gorgeous location for photos. Just down the road was Jordan’s family’s farm, which allowed us access into the bright yellow canola fields. I just love when canola is in season and so saturated like that!

Their reception was held back in Lethbridge at the College’s DA Electric Barn where they served donuts instead of cake :)

Congratulations, Jordan & Alyson!

Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Amelia & Abram]

Amelia & Abram, Lethbridge spring wedding

Amelia and Abram chose early May for their Lethbridge spring wedding and we had a beautiful day with sunshine and all of the new leaves starting to peak out.

One really fun part about the day is that we did the photos in reverse order, starting with their reception details. Amelia and Abram chose to do their personal portraits before anything else and it worked out hugely in our favor since the early afternoon was beautiful and sunny but it was pouring when we left the church after their ceremony! (I won’t even get into the stupid snow that happened after that.) They couldn’t have timed it better :)

I mentioned before how Abram hates having his photo taken, but you could tell he was so smitten by Amelia because he was grinning all day… he probably forget we were taking his photo ;) Amelia was full of huge laughter around him and their families, and she looked so stunning.

They chose the Lethbridge Lodge as their main location both for getting ready and their reception, so it was a natural fit to do many of the portraits there as well. After photos were finished, we headed over to the beautiful Nobleford Christian Reformed Church for their sweet and thoughtful ceremony.

Congratulations, Amelia & Abram!
