Bayshore Inn Outdoor Yard Ceremony [Peter & Monika]

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

Monika and Peter, Bayshore Inn outdoor yard ceremony

Monika and Peter love the outdoors so it was no surprise that Waterton was the perfect fit for their wedding. Their Bayshore Inn outdoor yard ceremony took place in such gorgeous weather with their closest friends and family in attendance. All day they were surrounded by so much love!

They subtly worked a couple of their geeky interests into the wedding with superhero socks, cufflinks, and even underwear, plus a Star Wars wedding band. The rest of their theme had a romantic look with subdued colors and beautiful white wild flowers.

Videography that day was provided by their adorable dog Brian. I’m not sure they’ll be hiring him again after he missed part of their ceremony by rolling upside down ;)

I loved watching Monika and Peter interact with each other. They are so comfortable together and naturally melted into each other’s arms for every photo.

Congratulations, Peter and Monika!

Waterton Extended Family Photos [Janet & the Kids]

Waterton extended family photos

Janet planned a wonderful trip with her children and their families over the long weekend. The whole family spent their weekend visiting Waterton and while there decided to have extended family photos done.

We started out our session at the Prince of Wales Hotel cliffs where “windy” doesn’t begin to describe the gusts that day! (I think that was our trade-off for narrowly escaping the forecast of rain.) We made our time there short so the children wouldn’t hate us too much… just enough time to get a few photos with the amazing view :)

The rest of the portrait session was spent at the gorgeous Cameron Falls, where we managed to sneak in right at dinner time when all the tourists were disappearing. The kids LOVED chasing the many chipmunks there so even when they got tired of photos, they had some good stress relief. It was amazing to see the love between Janet and her family. They are so special to her and she was so elated having everyone together.

Romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn Wedding [Shawn & Adrienne]

Shawn & Adrienne, Romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn Wedding

Adrienne and Shawn held a romantic Waterton Bayshore Inn wedding ceremony in the afternoon along the lake. This beautiful day was an official joining of their families, though they’ve taken on each other’s children as their own for quite some time now!

The couple made sure their family played an important role throughout the wedding day. Each of their mothers signed the marriage register, the wedding party was made up entirely of their children, and throughout the day they were chauffeured by Adrienne’s father in a light blue vintage Corsair car. The car, by the way, was gorgeous, and a perfect match for something old, borrowed, and blue!

It was amazing to watch how in love they are. Shawn could barely fight back tears as he watched Adrienne walk down the aisle and spoke of how meeting her was like a fairy tale. Adrienne exudes kindness and caring when she is near him.

Congratulations, Shawn and Adrienne!

Waterton Lakes Lodge Patio Wedding [Chris & Dara]

Dara and Chris, Waterton Lakes Lodge patio wedding

Chris and Dara had an intimate Waterton Lakes Lodge patio wedding with a handful of the people closest to them. Their ceremony was very emotional with both of them fighting back happy tears and really showed the deep love they share.

The weather that day let them have their outdoor ceremony, though we had to run in at one point when it started hailing during the paper signing! Family photos were then met with a very brief downpour and the rest of the day was like someone flicking a light switch between sun and clouds. Luckily Chris and Dara were so easy going that the weather didn’t phase them at all. Rain or shine, they happily went through their day without so much as an umbrella! All that mattered was each other :)

Once we finished their portraits, they headed back to the Waterton Lakes Lodge for a late sunlit lunch with their family.

Congratulations, Dara and Chris!

p.s. Thank you to Melanie at Photo Expressions for helping out!

Waterton United Church Wedding [Jared & Jessica]

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Jessica & Jared, Waterton United Church wedding

Jared and Jessica put together the perfect wedding they had dreamed of: a romantic mountain getaway that focused on their families coming together and the amazing connection they share. They even opted out of having a wedding party so they could spend more time and attention on their families.

We started the day at their Waterton United Church wedding, which was a perfect mix of sweet, touching moments and their nieces and nephews being adorable.

After the ceremony, we headed to the Prince of Wales Hotel (their favorite viewpoint in the park) for all of their portraits. Both Jessica and Jared were bursting with excitement all day and so full of joy to be marrying their soul mates. Even in the freezing wind, they couldn’t stop grinning!

They finished off their day with a private dinner (and a good shot of whiskey!) at the Waterton Lakes Lodge.

Congratulations, Jessica and Jared!

Weddings with Lorelei Hoffarth in Waterton [Riley & Kaitlin]

Kaitlin & Riley, Waterton wedding photography

I love going to Waterton for weddings, so it was impossible to say no when Lorelei Hoffarth asked me to help her second shoot Kaitlin and Riley’s wedding there. (Plus Lorelei is awesome to work with!)

I started out the day several hours earlier than I’m used to getting up (and survived!) to capture the guys getting ready in Lethbridge before the limo arrived, then hopped on board with them to the gorgeous national park. They had their Waterton morning ceremony on the cliffs behind the Prince of Wales Hotel and it was such a beautiful day for the wedding. Kaitlin and Riley are a gorgeous couple and judging by Riley’s emotional response to seeing her walk down the aisle, their love is so strong.
