Autumn Waterton Lakes Wedding [Kevin & Ashley]

Kevin & Ashley, autumn Waterton Lakes wedding

Kevin and Ashley chose an amazing time of year for their autumn Waterton Lakes wedding; the park was nearly empty, beautiful fall colors lined the mountains, and it was still warm enough to get married outside. Even the crazy wind couldn’t spoil their perfect day! With each gust, Ashley cheered like she was on an amusement park ride because she was so happy to be marrying the man of her dreams.

There was so much joy throughout the day, especially at the reception. The speeches were full of laughter and they both had the hugest grins during their first dance. They are so perfect together!

They held both their ceremony and reception Waterton Lakes Lodge with photos taken throughout the town site and at Cameron Lake.

Congratulations, Kevin and Ashley!

Racehorse Creek Outdoor Wedding [Freddie & Stef]

Freddie & Stef, Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding

Freddie and Stef wanted their laid-back attitudes and love of the outdoors to come through when planning their big day and fittingly decided on a Racehorse Creek outdoor wedding at one of their favorite camping and dirt biking locations.

They chose a gorgeous clearing in the Racehorse Creek area just north of the Crowsnest Pass where all of their friends and family could camp for the weekend celebrations. Of course they brought along all of their “toys” and even included their dirt bikes in the wedding :)

Stef was jaw-dropping in her corseted dress. All of the tears and laughter shared between her and Freddie throughout the day made it so obvious how in love they are.

Their day brought a sampling of all of Alberta’s weather: smoke, sun, wind, rain, and concluding with a dramatic sunset so beautiful that they quickly changed back into their wedding clothes to take advantage of it.

Congratulations, Freddie and Stef!

Castle Mountain Summer Wedding [Shawn & Jori]

Shawn & Jori, Castle Mountain summer wedding

Early on it seemed like nature was conspiring against Jori and Shawn’s Castle Mountain summer wedding. On Thursday the air was hazy with smoke from the forest fires, and on Friday everyone had the shock of August snow! When Saturday rolled around, they got the beautiful summer weather they had hoped for with clear sunny skies.

Jori and Shawn are so passionate together, having their portraits secluded in the forest was just such a natural fit for them. I had immediately noticed how romantic they were at their engagement session, but it was even more so with all of the wedding day emotions.

Castle Mountain Resort was such a beautiful choice for their wedding venue and I hope we can go back there soon.

Congratulations, Shawn and Jori!

Waterton Community Center Wedding [Garrett & Heather]

Garrett & Heather, Waterton Community Center wedding

Garrett and Heather held a summer Waterton Community Center wedding on the lawn below the mountains. It was a beautiful day for their intimate wedding and we managed to keep the day calm by avoiding all of the crowds in the park.

In the evening we returned to the Waterton Community Center for their reception, which was deliciously catered by The Great Canadian Barn Dance.

Heather and Garrett are such happy and silly people (at one point they complained how hard it was when I asked them to be serious for a photo!) that you couldn’t help but feel joyous being around them all day. They just couldn’t stop smiling! It was obvious where they inherit these traits from… everyone in their families was so warm and inviting and had great senses of humor.

Congratulations, Garrett & Heather!

Birds of Prey Centre Alternative Wedding [Donovan & Brittany]

Donovan & Brittany, Birds of Prey Centre alternative Wedding

In what might be one of our most unique weddings of the year, Brittany and Donovan held an Alberta Birds of Prey Centre alternative wedding amongst all of the adorable ducks, owls, and eagles in Coaldale! Brittany loves animals and when they were looking for a unique, rarely used ceremony location, the Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation was a perfect fit.

They had an emotional and happy wedding there with their closest friends and family and then got to play with some ducks and owls before we headed back into Lethbridge. The post office building downtown was a perfect location for their subdued, cool wedding hues (and Brittany’s rad hair) and she rocked her tattoos with her wedding dress while Donovan sported his awesome trademark mustache.

They were a hilarious group to spend the day with and were such wonderful hams in front of the camera. :)

Congratulations, Donovan and Brittany!

Summer Waterton Mountain Wedding [Ryan & Jennifer]

Ryan & Jen, summer Waterton mountain wedding

Ryan and Jen had a summer Waterton mountain wedding, which is always one of our favorite places to visit! Both their ceremony and reception were held at the Waterton Community Center, with their ceremony taking place on the lawn outside overlooking the gorgeous mountains that surround the townsite.

They were hilarious with their wedding party, and Ryan was especially all about jumping into silly poses. We are very grateful to them that they handled the wind so well seeing as how the prettiest places were the ones where the wind could almost knock you down that day!

Congratulations, Ryan and Jen!
