Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding [Jennifer & David]

Jennifer & David, Southern Alberta Art Gallery Wedding

Jennifer and David have already built a life together but decided to make it official this year! They threw a party for their family and closest friends by having a Southern Alberta Art Gallery wedding.

The years they’ve already been together have only made their love grow deeper. They had the hugest grins when they saw each other during their first look and constantly fought back tears during the ceremony at the SAAG. They are such a sweet couple and are so perfect for each other.

Their reception at the SAAG was filled with lots of dancing and laughter. Instead of a sit down dinner, they served a spread of creative (and delicious!) appetizers from LA Chefs, allowing their guests more time to mingle.

Congratulations, Jennifer and David!

Waterton Lakes Lodge Winter Wedding [Jeremiah & Hannah]

Jeremiah and Hannah, Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding

I’m not sure I have ever seen two people as excited to get married as Hannah and Jeremiah! Their relationship was love at first sight and it shows in how passionate they are around each other. It was hard to spot them without giant smiles while in each other’s company all day.

They planned their big day as a mini-destination trip with a Waterton Lakes Lodge winter wedding, and man did they ever get winter! Waterton was covered in several feet of snow with a fresh snowfall just in time for their wedding. For once, it wasn’t windy there! Their wedding party were great sports to go out in that much snow and we all lasted pretty long out there considering the temperature.

Both their ceremony and reception were held indoors at the Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort and they had beautiful lights set up behind the head table stage that made a perfect backdrop for both portions of the day.

Congratulations, Jeremiah and Hannah!

Kananaskis Delta Lodge Wedding [Daniel & Jena]

Jena and Daniel, Kananaskis Delta Lodge Wedding

Jena and Daniel are one of those couples who cannot be subtle about how much they are in love. From the way Jena bends over in laughter from Daniel’s jokes to the way they clutched each other during the first dance, their emotions for each other are so intense. It was amazing to watch!

Their wedding party matched their excitement and were constantly joking and having intense fits of laughter. They could not have chosen better friends to stand beside them.

They planned a gorgeous Kananaskis Delta Lodge wedding with soft lavender colors and details to match the beauty of the mountains. With so many amazing spots at the resort itself, we never had to leave the site. Moss covered streams and mountain vistas were all within a two minute walk of each other!

Congratulations, Daniel and Jena!

Crowsnest Pass Private Estate Outdoor Wedding [Shaun & Jill]

Jill and Shaun, Crowsnest Pass private estate outdoor wedding

Shaun and Jill had a rough start to their year but their wedding more than made up for that with how flawlessly it went, thanks in huge part to the many hours both of their mothers spent planning and organizing!

They held a Crowsnest Pass private estate outdoor wedding ceremony under Turtle Mountain in Jill’s parents’ yard. I refer to their ceremony venue as a “private estate” not because it technically is one, but because the term “backyard” doesn’t do it justice! This amazing property is beautifully landscaped and runs along the Crowsnest River. Jill’s family put so much work into getting the property set up for the wedding, with huge tents for the guests to sit under, ample parking, and refreshments. I love how they set the guests away from the ceremony so that it still had a very intimate feel.

Jill and Shaun are both very down to earth, happy people, making it such a pleasure to be around them for the day. Their commitment is so strong after already being together for a number of years and they are so comfortable with each other.

One very special part of the day was that they hired a bagpiper to celebrate Jill’s Scottish heritage and they got him to come along for extra photos, giving us a custom soundtrack for the day!

After portraits, we headed to the MDM Community Centre (the old elementary school of both me and Jill!) for their reception.

Congratulations, Jill and Shaun!

Italian Canadian Club Spring Wedding [Andrea & Tylor]

Andrea and Tylor, Italian Canadian Club spring wedding

Weddings are so much more fun to be involved with when I have an emotional connection to the couple. Having known Andrea since grade one made working with her and Tylor that much more amazing! I love seeing how incredibly in love they are and how happy he makes her.

It was no surprise that Andrea put together such a beautiful wedding when she herself is a wedding planner (check her out at Elegant Weddings and Events!). They chose a gorgeous theme of purples and blues for their Italian Canadian Club spring wedding, accenting their wedding party in lilac while they wore blue. Andrea was so in love with her colour scheme that she wore two dresses for the wedding: a more traditional white tea cup dress for the ceremony and a beautiful floor length blue reception dress.

Their daughter Evelyn, adorned in purple lace, obviously stole the show ;)

Congratulations, Andrea and Tylor!

Gate Lethbridge Autumn Wedding [Graham & Andrea]

Andrea & Graham, Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding

I’m so happy Andrea and Graham kept me in mind so long for their photography and I was able to photograph their Gate Lethbridge autumn wedding! Despite the many years they have already been together, their love feels so fresh and new and I love how sweet and emotional they are together. It’s just too bad their kitty Henry couldn’t have been in the wedding party ;)

Their ceremony was held at The Gate in downtown Lethbridge, which was conveniently close to both their portrait and reception locations. They loved the modern, bright feel of Casa so we did most of the portraits inside the art building. All of the colors there worked perfect with the gray suits and purple accents in their wedding attire.

Afterwards they had their reception at Anton’s Ballroom in the Lethbridge Lodge, which was filled with gorgeous natural light on this warm day and, of course, so much joy from them and their guests :)

Congratulations, Graham and Andrea!
