Lethbridge Sandman Signature Hotel Autumn Wedding [Stacie & Gerrit]

Stacie and Gerrit, Lethbridge Sandman Signature Hotel Autumn Wedding

Stacie and Gerrit planned a romantic Lethbridge Sandman Signature Hotel autumn wedding with dark grays with deep red accents, all of which looked striking with the fall colours. In mid-October, we’re never quite sure what weather we’re going to get. Stacie and Gerrit were treated to all of the weather! The temperatures climbed early in the day, along with quite a windstorm that drove us indoors for family portraits. We refused to hide from the weather all day and sought shelter in the Helen Schuler Nature Reserve.

While Stacie and Gerrit laughed and had a great time with their wedding party in the river bottom (along with a lot of getting lost in each other’s eyes), the sky became blacker and blacker until we started hearing thunder and seeing lightning! We finished their photos in a downpour before rushing back to the safety of the hotel.

Their reception was filled with so many sweet stories from their families. Wedding receptions usually turn into a bit of a roast, but theirs was mostly a celebration of how loved they are by everyone around them (with a healthy dose of roasting from their siblings).

They took a break from their reception at the Sandman Signature Hotel (formerly the Lethbridge Lodge) for night time photos. Luckily by then the rain had stopped, and the snow hadn’t quite started yet! Stacie and Gerrit embraced tightly on the edge of the coulees – partly to stay warm but mostly because it meant they finally had a moment alone together :)

Congratulations, Stacie and Gerrit!

Quintina & Mike, Readymade Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

During a rare weekend off last summer, I had the opportunity to second shoot for Melanie at Photo Expressions Photography for Quintina and Mike’s wedding. Quintina and Mike had a Readymade outdoor wedding ceremony followed by portraits around the Coaldale area. They were such a happy couple with just as happy friends and spent the whole day smiling and laughing! Even better, they brought their puppy along for the whole day.

Congratulations, Quintina and Mike!

Lethbridge Snowy Late Winter Wedding [Koos & Denise]

Koos & Denise, Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding

When Denise and Koos planned their wedding, I think they were expecting a little more spring than the winter wonderland they received! The tiffany blue and gray color theme they chose looked gorgeous for their Lethbridge snowy late winter wedding, offering a great compliment to the cool hues and bit of blue popping out of the sky.

After their ceremony at the Lethbridge Netherlands Reformed Congregation, we met with them and their family and luckily could keep everyone inside and warm for their portraits. Next we were off to the Broxburn Cafe who generously let us take a few photos inside to warm up. Everything about that location looked fantastic with the wedding colors and their rustic touches. The wedding party was so awesome about sticking it out in the cold and smiling despite the temperatures!

Denise and Koos were so lost in each other throughout the day that they hardly noticed the cold. Their embraces kept them warm and showed off how sweet and caring their relationship is.

At the end of the night we returned to their reception at the Lethbridge Lodge where they had both hilarious comedy sketches and moving presentations from the family.

Thanks to Melanie at Photo Expressions for assisting that day.

Congratulations, Koos and Denise!

Park Lake Summer Wedding Photos [Travis & Janine]

Janine and Travis, Park Lake summer wedding photos

Janine and Travis chose a gorgeous day to get married and spent it with all the people who love them the most. Their wedding party was so energetic and happy throughout the day, and always ready to help Janine with her dress. Janine and Travis are so passionate together and I had to be careful not to direct them too kiss too often, because it was hard to get them to stop!

We started off the day with Park Lake summer wedding photos of them and their families. The lake was nice and quiet (except for the mosquitoes) so we got to have free reign of the place.

Everyone then piled in the limo to head to Lethbridge for photos in the coulees (I’m always so impressed with the ease at which the girls travel down in their heels!) and some urban shots in Crossings.

Congratulations, Janine and Travis!

Henderson Lake Summer Wedding Photos [Rylan & Sarah]

Rylan and Sarah, Henderson Lake summer wedding photos

After photographing Sarah and Rylan before as bridal party members, I was so excited to finally see Sarah in her own white dress!

This was a special wedding for their families as both Sarah and Rylan are the first of their siblings to get married. Each set of little sisters was especially excited to get to dress up for this fun day.

After family photos in Picture Butte, we made the drive to Lethbridge to visit Indian Battle Park and finished with Henderson Lake summer wedding photos, complete with popping their first bottle of champagne.

It was so great to get to work with their group of friends again. This was our fifth time working with some of their friends and they are always so hilarious, outgoing, and make the day so special for everyone involved. This particular day we were treated to watching ice cream battles to combat the summer heat ;)

Sarah and Rylan are so amazing together and completely adore each other. I quickly lost count of how many times Rylan would send her into uncontrollable laughter.

Congratulations, Rylan and Sarah!

Picture Butte Farm Wedding Photos [Jelaina & Daniel]

Jelaina & Daniel, Picture Butte farm wedding photos

I already got to work with Jelaina and Daniel briefly at her sister’s wedding last year so it was awesome to focus on them this time! Following their ceremony and lunch, we started with Picture Butte farm wedding photos at Daniel’s family’s home. They had a beautiful yard with rustic elements and it was a gorgeous day with a perfect mix of sun, clouds, and a breeze.

For their theme they chose an elegant look with soft pinks and grays. It was so classic and romantic! It felt perfect for them; the way they interact is so gentle and caring. Just moments after being silly with their friends and siblings, they can switch to these intensely romantic looks at each other :)

Congratulations, Daniel and Jelaina!
