Paradise Canyon Fall Wedding Photography [Cassie & Christian]

Cassie and Christian, Paradise Canyon Fall Wedding

Cassie and Christian returned to their hometown for their Paradise Canyon fall wedding. They chose a plum colour theme with autumn accents such as pumpkins and orange flowers to match the season. Despite being met with a surprise snowfall the night before the wedding, we still managed to pull out the fall colours from the Lethbridge landscape!

Their ceremony was filled with lots of happiness and laughter, especially when Christian’s nephew tried his best to steal the show. We made use of the beautiful coulees behind the golf course for photos, then headed over to Nicholas Sheran Lake to focus on Cassie and Christian. It’s no wonder Christian couldn’t stop smiling at his beautiful bride! A warm, fuzzy blanket kept Cassie going through photos, and she bravely whipped it off each time. Luckily Christian’s embrace was a warm alternative.

Congratulations, Cassie & Christian!

Waterton Community Hall Outdoor Wedding Ceremony [Jessica & Jordan]

Jessica and Jordan, Waterton Community Hall outdoor wedding ceremony

Everything came together so beautifully for Jessica and Jordan’s Waterton Community Hall outdoor wedding ceremony! The couple chose Waterton as their wedding destination after falling in love with the beauty of the national park. The fire damage hit the treeline after they had already set their date, and construction near their wedding venue in the weeks leading up to the date had them worried. It’s almost as though the town finished all the construction just for them! All worries melted away as they were met with a beautiful, sunny day. Even the wild flowers were still in bloom and matched their purple wedding colours.

Jessica and Jordan incorporated so many fun details into their wedding day! They had enough vintage cars to go around that no one in the wedding party had to go in a boring modern ride. Their two adorable dogs also joined in some of the festivities. They and their wedding party had so much fun cruising around the town. We had such a blast with them!

Congratulations, Jessica and Jordan!

Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden Wedding Ceremony [Mary & Dale]

Mary and Dale, Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden wedding ceremony

I was honoured when a friend asked me to photograph her mother’s wedding. After their children were grown up, Mary and Dale found love in each other and organized a beautiful Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden wedding ceremony. Mary hadn’t had a fancy wedding the first time around and used this opportunity to plan her dream wedding! She chose her favourite colours, planned around one of the most scenic locations in Lethbridge, and looked stunning in her flower crown and lace dress with a full train.

They invited the people who were most important to them to their intimate wedding, including Mary’s daughters in the wedding party. Mary and Dale were all smiles at each other. Dale teared up so many times early on in the ceremony! They are such a sweet couple.

Congratulations, Mary and Dale!

Melinda and Henk, early spring Lethbridge wedding photography

Earlier this year I had another opportunity to second shoot for the lovely Photography by Andrea Hulst when she invited me to Henk and Melinda’s wedding. We started the morning in Picture Butte while the couple got ready at their family homes and then joined them at the Netherlands Reformed Congregation for their ceremony. We spent the rest of the afternoon doing their early spring Lethbridge wedding photography around the river bottom parks, hunting for the first signs of spring that were starting to appear.

Congratulations, Melinda and Henk!

Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding [Raiven & Jonathan]

Raiven & Jonathan, Lethbridge Norland Estate Autumn Wedding

What a fantastic way to finish off the wedding season, with a Lethbridge Norland Estate autumn wedding! We got to spend the day at our favorite venue with Raiven and Jonathan, who are some of the nicest people I have met. They planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony amongst the freshly changed fall colours. I asked the rain very nicely to wait until we were done photos and it totally listened to me ;)

Raiven and Jonathan had such a laid back wedding. Raiven finished getting ready with plenty of time to have a first look with Jonathan then visit with their parents in the social room before the ceremony, and later on their reception felt more like a dinner party with family than a super formal event. With everything taking place at one location, they were able to take little breaks to spend time with loved ones in between photos.

I loved how Raiven constantly burst into laughter throughout the day and how Jonathan fought back tears at all of his first looks at her (her coming down the aisle was even more powerful than their first look!). They are so sweet together and their families are already so close, you couldn’t even tell which half of the couple they belonged to.

Congratulations, Raiven and Jonathan!

Gem of the West Wedding Ceremony [Kelti & Matthew]

Kelti & Matthew, Gem of the West wedding ceremony

Kelti and Matthew held their Gem of the West wedding ceremony on the cusp of autumn with the most important people in their lives in attendance. Kelti is heavily involved in the community so choosing a venue with so much historic value was such a perfect fit.

Kelti, Matthew, and all of their wedding party got ready at the Charles Street Suites, which is conveniently decorated in their wedding colours! They kept to separate floors so that they could share a first look on the staircase before heading out for photos.

Kelti and Matthew both give off so much positive energy and had us laughing all day. It was clear to see why they are so amazing together while watching them interact; they bounce that energy off each other nonstop and hardly ever quit smiling. They, their siblings, and their wedding party were constantly hilarious and never took anything too seriously – even when tackle chases gave way to ripped pants early in the day.

Congratulations, Kelti and Matthew!
