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!

Heritage Hall Autumn Wedding Ceremony [Trent & Dominika]

Trent & Dominika, Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony

Trent and Dominika planned a Heritage Hall autumn wedding ceremony and reception and worked beautiful fall colours into their wardrobe, flowers, and d├ęcor. Despite a morning of rain, the day turned beautiful right after they said their vows and we were able to go find all the autumn colours they had hoped for.

As Trent’s father so perfectly put it during speeches: “As long as you two keep giggling together all the time, you can get through anything.” I don’t think that Trent and Dominika will ever tire of each other’s company with how much they joke and make each other laugh. They were hilarious and since their first date involved a visit to a liquor store, we even stopped by that same store for a few silly photos on the way back.

Their daughters were so adorable in their little white dresses and probably had more fun than anyone else with how much they danced at the reception! The cupcakes definitely helped them make it through the long day they had :)

Congratulations, Trent and Dominika!

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!

Lethbridge Grandstand Summer Wedding [Don & Cathy]

Don & Cathy, Lethbridge Grandstand summer wedding

I’ve been looking forward to Don and Cathy’s Lethbridge Grandstand summer wedding for a long time now – not just because they were the first wedding booked for this year, but because I’ve been dancing with Cathy for many years now! Her and Don have been a family for quite a while now and decided to make it official with a party for their closest friends and family.

They held both their ceremony and reception on the bright upper level of the Grandstand. Having Norma officiate the wedding was a perfect fit as she’s one of our “dance moms.”

The hazy skies and summer heat made everything look dreamy and warm outside. It was a perfect complement to the natural color scheme of green, orange, and brown they chose for their wedding colors. They looked gorgeous and were so joyous all day!

Congratulations, Don and Cathy!

Henderson Lake Summer Newborn Portraits [Evelyn]

Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits

I love seeing childhood friends starting their families. This summer was Andrea’s turn when her and Tylor welcomed their brand new baby girl Evelyn into their home! Just a little while after Evelyn arrived, we met up for Henderson Lake summer newborn portraits on an absolutely gorgeous evening in Lethbridge. Evelyn was adorable in her pretty white dress and was one of the sleepiest babies I’ve ever worked with, though she did open one eye at me for a moment to check out what I was doing :)

Andrea and Tylor are so in love with her and radiating so much happiness. It’s wonderful seeing them together. I can’t wait to see how adorable she will be dressed at their wedding next year… with Andrea’s amazing wedding planning skills I know it will be super cute!

Outdoor Lethbridge Spring Wedding [Ken & Sam]

Ken & Sam, Lethbridge spring wedding

Ken and Sam were a wonderful couple to start out the craziness of wedding season with! I had already worked with Ken in another wedding party a few years ago but this was my first opportunity to photograph the adorable Sam with him. They are so cute together! They have no problem being silly and are so cuddly and comfortable around each other.

When you have a Lethbridge spring wedding you often face a big challenge – THE WIND! – but everyone was in good spirits and fought through it, chasing any personal items that blew away, and we found lots of little nooks to tuck them into to escape it. The weather only proved how easy going these two are.

Their group was so much fun to spend the day with and we were so happy to be a part of it.

Congratulations, Ken & Sam!
