Japanese Garden Morning Wedding Photos [Brittany & Brent]

Brittany and Brent, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden morning wedding photos

Brittany and Brent had the honor of being the very first wedding to take place at Nikka Yuko this spring. Their Japanese Garden morning wedding photos took place half an hour after the garden opened for the season!

Since their ceremony was not until the late afternoon, Brittany and Brent opted to have a first look in the morning. Rather than see each other for the first time in church, the first look allowed for intimate photos of the exact moment they see each on the wedding day. (We love this because it usually means less stress for the couple, fresher makeup and flowers, and a more relaxed timeline.) We had Brent turn around when Brittany was only a few meters from him. You could see the exact moment the corners of his mouth started to curl up into a smile! Brittany swears his tears were on their way, but Brent held it together!

After the Japanese Garden photos, we headed west for some views of the coulees and then family photos in Indian Battle Park before the couple was on their way to their ceremony. We had so many great moments to pull them away from their friends and family. I couldn’t get enough of how adoringly they looked at each other all day.

Congratulations, Brittany and Brent!

Galt Museum Ceremony and Wedding Reception [Vanessa & Robbie]

Vanessa and Robbie, Galt Museum Ceremony and Wedding Reception

Vanessa and Robbie planned an elegant Galt Museum ceremony and wedding reception on the cusp of autumn. With glimmering rose gold and soft pink accents and well tailored suits, their wedding party looked so sharp!

They started their day with a first look at Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden and had their family join them there for photos. After their romantic and joyfully emotional ceremony at the Galt, we headed to the University of Lethbridge, which is where their journey together began.

The couple placed so much importance on family, including all of their siblings in the wedding party and making sure everyone close to them felt as important as they are. They were so ecstatically happy all day! Even as the pre-dinner sleepiness started to set in, they were still elated to be in each other’s presence and couldn’t stop grinning.

Congratulations, Vanessa and Robbie!

Bayshore Inn Outdoor Wedding Ceremony in Waterton [Julia & Kyle]

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Julia and Kyle, Bayshore Inn outdoor wedding ceremony

Our summer of smoky skies hit its peak for Kyle and Julia’s wedding. The day before their Bayshore Inn outdoor wedding ceremony, the town of Waterton was put under evacuation alert due to a new nearby fire! Luckily the conditions held and everything went ahead as planned. (The happy ending is the next day saw a huge downpour that helped to lift the alert!)

Julia and Kyle have a love at first sight story and continue to look at each other with that intensity. Both of them were so emotional at the ceremony, quickly shifting from happy tears to giant smiles.

Their wedding party kept them laughing all day and made the best use of their half day in Waterton by exploring the landscape. From going barefoot in the water to using downed trees as balance beams, they made use of all the nature around them! Kyle and Julia have such special relationships with their family that their siblings are also considered friends to each of them and were an obvious choice to have in their party.

Once we completed photos in Waterton, we drove out to Cardston for their tent reception at Kyle’s dad’s ranch where they were free to party all night.

Congratulations, Julia and Kyle!

Picture Butte Late Summer Wedding Photography [Makayla & Cornell]

Makayla and Cornell, Picture Butte late summer wedding photography

After photographing many of their family member’s weddings, I was excited to hear Makayla and Cornell were the next in line to wed! We started off their Picture Butte late summer wedding photos at the family’s beautiful property that backs onto the coulees. Just like a few years ago at a sibling’s wedding, the view was very smoky! Luckily the smoke looks amazing in the coulees :)

Their nieces and nephews were (mostly) excited to have a photographer come visit and gave us all kinds of adorable poses! We had quite a few family members tasked with removing photobombing children from photos, and later the dogs and barn kittens started crashing the shoot too!

The Picture Butte Golf Club was very generous with letting us run around the course for photos and explore the grounds with a whole fleet of golf carts.

Makayla and Cornell have such a great group of people they call friends. Like the other weddings, we spent the day in laughter and never knew what silliness to expect when we turned around. They have such great senses of humour and will have an amazing lifetime together making each other laugh.

Congratulations, Makayla and Cornell!

Gorgeous Historic Norland Estate Summer Wedding [Kathleen & Mike]

Thursday, August 16th, 2018

Kathleen & Mike, gorgeous Historic Norland Estate summer wedding

Kathleen and Mike planned a gorgeous Historic Norland Estate summer wedding over the August long weekend. Their wedding embodied summer with bright colours and lemonade!

When Kathleen enlisted her sister for help planning the wedding, any indecisiveness eventually led to her sister Googling “grandma wedding” for the perfect inspiration. Kathleen did all of the cross-stitching that was on display at the wedding. This included table cloths, table numbers, artwork, special charms for each bridesmaid, and even a rocking chair! Family members helped out with other details, including their beloved lemonade stand which was created by Kathleen’s brother in law.

Family played a very important role in their wedding day. Both of their mothers witnessed the marriage certificate, and their daughter had the most important role as maid of honour. On the way to the Norland, Kathleen and her sisters made a detour to the cemetery to visit their father. They kept their eyes mostly dry by bringing a dance party to dad as they delivered his boutonnière!

Between all the silly faces, the constant dance parties that would break out, and Kathleen and Mike’s amazing love for each other, we had such a fun day with them and their friends and family.

Congratulations, Kathleen & Mike!

Romantic Fort Macleod Wedding Photography [Kate & John]

Kate and John, Romantic Fort Macleod Wedding Photography

Kate and John chose a beautiful mid-spring day to have their wedding at the Fort Macleod NRC Church. All day they were full of smiles, joking with their friends but mostly flashing huge grins whenever they caught each other’s eyes.

They picked so many perfect details to accent their romantic Fort Macleod wedding photography. Soft pinks, navy blue, well-tailored suits, a classic rose bouquet, and gorgeous lace detail on Kate’s wedding dress all tied the romantic theme together.

Their wedding party was made up of a variety of family members who double as close friends. Each member was very well selected, constantly going above and beyond to help the married couple by doing things like fixing Kate’s hair, checking in with property owners, and picking up pizza.

Normally I choose most photo locations for my couples, but Kate did all of her own scouting and found some amazing spots! We got to go inside an old wooden grain elevator and visited a few older style houses within Fort Macleod, all with beautiful front porches. Kate has an amazing eye for historic design. Each time we switched locations, I was excited to see what we were going to find!

Congratulations, Kate and John!
