Lethbridge Backyard Wedding [Kelly & Emily]

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

Emily and Kelly, Lethbridge backyard wedding

What started out as a Hawaiian themed engagement party eventually turned into a Hawaiian themed evening backyard wedding at Emily and Kelly’s Lethbridge home. Emily had her dress and since invitations had already been sent to their family and closest friends, they decided to take the plunge a little early!

Their party started just before sunset, giving their ceremony a gorgeous glow as it went into twilight. They did a spectacular job decorating their yard for the event and ended up with a gorgeous ceremony location. The service was so emotional with lots of laughter and happy tears. It was wonderful to be a part of such a happy event :)

The evening was full of dancing, coconut and pineapple flavored treats, and everyone having an amazing time celebrating the couple.

Congratulations, Kelly & Emily!

Lake Louise Snowy Winter Wedding [Alex & Erika]

Alex and Erika, Lake Louise snowy winter wedding

I adore tiny, intimate weddings and Erika and Alex had the ultimate: a beautiful Lake Louise snowy winter elopement, planned at quite the last minute. With less than a week’s notice (and the day after moving, no less), Cam and I were on our way to Lake Louise to capture the couple’s gorgeous day.

Their ceremony was held at the classic Deer Lodge near the lake and the rustic feel of the hotel was a perfect compliment to Erika’s vintage sense of style; she would have fit in perfectly when the lodge first opened! I loved the contrast to Alex’s modern look of his slim fitting gray suit and matching high-tops.

Erika was hoping for a winter wonderland and she definitely got it! After a very frigid week, Lake Louise warmed up just in time for their wedding photos but not so much that any snow melted away. Even the ice castle was still left standing on the lake. Between the lodge and the lake, we had no shortage of photo opportunities.

Their ceremony was beautiful and quiet, and their officiant took her time to make it that much more special. We were so happy to be able to take part.

Congratulations, Alex and Erika!

Stacey and Danny, Intimate Waterton Mountain Wedding

Danny and Stacey came all the way from Manitoba for their dream intimate Waterton mountain wedding, and they had such a perfect day! With only their parents, siblings, nieces, and nephews in attendance, the ceremony was really quiet and meaningful, and they choose such a beautiful day (no hail storms for once!). They were awesome to work with, especially since Stacey was totally up for scaling the rocks in Red Rock Canyon!

Congratulations, Stacey and Danny! (more…)

Geoff & Stefanie | Lethbridge Wedding Photography

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Geoff and Stefanie held a beautiful, small ceremony for themselves before heading out east to celebrate their new marriage with their full families. They picked literally the hottest day this year and by the end of photos we had all become unable to speak, but at least the photos were still amazing with how gorgeous the two of them are and thanks to them choosing Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden as their location.

After a post-photo cool down, they had their backyard ceremony with their ministers and two witnesses, and then celebrated with cake and iced tea. :)

Congratulations, Geoff and Stefanie! (more…)

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Rose and Dainis came down from Calgary to have a low key wedding with their immediate family present. We met up in the coulees for some family photos and they were such a fun bunch. Rose and Dainis were so adorable and so patient sweating through the super hot weather we had to work with :) (more…)

Paul & Erika | A Lethbridge Wedding

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

Paul and Erika picked a beautiful day to have their cute, intimate wedding (and they picked the BEST possible time of day to have their photos!). Only their parents and one of Erika’s friends were there to take part, and the couple surprised most of their family and friends with the news in the following days :)

They were amazing in front of the camera, which is funny because Paul did not enjoy having his photo taken one bit! Can you even tell? He joked through the whole thing and Erika egged him on just the right amount.

They also brought along their adorable dogs, the slender Olive and Fred the puppy, to take part in some of the photos. I love when people include their animals, and these ones were so well behaved!

After the photos, we went to Ric’s Grill where they had a private ceremony in the upstairs portion of the tower just as the sun was setting. Even though their event was small, it was very beautiful and I’m glad I was able to take part in it :) (more…)
