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!

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!

Park Lake Engagement Photos [Becky & William]

Park Lake engagement photos

I got together again with Becky and William for Park Lake engagement photos in the summer as a complement to their winter photos. We just missed the downpour when we arrived, which made everything super green and fresh looking at the lake. This time around Becky and William went for a more casual country look that was awesome at the outdoor location. In between all the laughter they share together, these two are masters at the sensual kiss for photos ;)

I can’t wait for their wedding in a couple months!

Coleman Engagement Photos [Stephanie & Travis]

Coleman engagement photos

Stephanie and Travis are getting married in the Crowsnest Pass next year and took advantage of Coleman engagement photos while I was down for the weekend this summer. We were joined by their very well trained dogs Luka and Lucky as a trial run to see if the dogs are well behaved enough to attend the wedding; the dogs listened so well so I think they passed the test!

It was a gorgeous morning at the Miner’s Path and finally cooled off from the rain the day before. Stephanie and Travis were great in front of the camera for their first professional photos!

Galt Museum Summer Wedding Photos [Andrew & Kristen]

Andrew & Kristen, Galt Museum summer wedding photos

Andrew and Kristen planned a very classic, stylish event for their Galt Museum summer wedding photos. Most ceremonies at the Galt take place inside the museum but the couple wanted to take advantage of the gorgeous view of the coulees on the bluff outside. They had the absolute best luck that day, finishing their ceremony in the sun and all photos just before the big storm moved in.

They planned their outdoor ceremony and Galt reception close together so their guests could go straight to cocktail hour. To make the best use of our time, we met up with each part of the wedding party just before the ceremony. No one needed warming up for photos; they all had us laughing immediately!

We loved working with Kristen and Andrew for their photos. They are SUCH a gorgeous couple and looked stunning in Kristen’s high back lace dress and Andrew’s navy suit.

Congratulations, Andrew and Kristen!

Lethbridge Summer Elopement [Tammy & Todd]

Tammy & Todd, Lethbridge summer elopement

Tammy and Todd had a Lethbridge summer elopement of sorts – a small, intimate wedding that only a handful of their closest family members knew about, which gave them a chance to surprise the rest of the family a few weeks later! They chose a beautiful day at the start of summer to have their wedding with not a gust of wind or a mosquito in sight.

After having their ceremony in their backyard, I met with them and their family in Pavan Park for their family photos and then wedding photos of just the couple. Tammy looked amazing in her fitted lace dress and I loved the touches of purple they worked in to their wardrobe.

Congratulations, Tammy and Todd!
