Norland Estate Winter Wedding at Christmas [Kendra & DJ]

Thursday, December 16th, 2021

Kendra & DJ, Norland Estate winter wedding at Christmas

Kendra and DJ already have a family together, but their Norland Estate winter wedding was a party to make it official! They invited their closest family and friends and themed the event around the Christmas holidays. Kendra hoped for snow but in true Lethbridge fashion we got a wind warning instead. In the end this worked to our advantage because it gave us the most beautiful golden hour!

Despite the wind, everyone was great about taking photos outside. There was even enough snow left for Kendra’s wintery wishes! Once twilight hit, we went back out for a few more photos. The gazebo is so beautifully lit at night and the Norland looks incredible decked out for Christmas.

Their daughter Addison had an absolute blast all day and didn’t even need a nap break! Kendra and DJ made sure a lot of the day focused on her. After she spent the afternoon getting ready with her parents, she was ready to greet all of their guests and then take part in photos. She didn’t mind the wind one bit! At dinner, she got to sit right between her mom and dad at the head table.

It was so great to spend another day with this sweet family (we also did Kendra’s brother’s wedding).

Congratulations, Kendra and DJ!

Pincher Creek Wedding Album Design [Dixie & Trevor]

Pincher Creek wedding album

Designing this Pincher Creek wedding album meant I got to relive how fun Dixie and Trevor’s wedding was! This Modern+ Album came with the wedding package they chose, and they had me choose the photos that go in it. For their reception, I designed with more of a collage style because they had way too many hilarious and emotional moments to choose from, like their garter removal prank or their huge dance circle with every guest up on the floor.

The charcoal leather binding and slate coloured album bag were a perfect complement to the silver colours in their wedding palette.

Italian Canadian Centre Autumn Wedding [Nicole & Brandon]

Brandon & Nicole, Italian Canadian Centre autumn wedding

Nicole and Brandon’s Italian Canadian Centre autumn wedding was well worth the wait! Their wedding planning started pre-COVID and they were finally able to have the wedding they wanted with all of their family and friends there.

Back in high school, they had made a bet with a staff member that if they got married, she would come to the wedding. That bet came to fruition, and they had her perform the marriage ceremony! Their vows were full of laughter and happy tears, especially when they first saw each other in the aisle. All of Brandon’s tension melted away when he had his first look at Nicole, and she was overcome with very teary smiles.

They booked a fantastic car to get around for their photos, a classic Lincoln from 94 Cabs, which made for amazing photos. This was the very first wedding the car has been used for since it was restored, so it was quite an honour to try it out. We had such a great time out for photos with them, especially thanks to their hilarious friends who had no shortage of great poses and jokes to make the couple laugh.

Congratulations, Nicole and Brandon!

p.s. A huge thank you to Matthew from Aspire Photography who helped me out when Cam wasn’t feeling well!

Via Church Autumn Wedding in Lethbridge [Andrea & Jeff]

Andrea & Jeff, Via Church autumn wedding in Lethbridge

Andrea and Jeff had always planned to keep their Via Church autumn wedding small, but had no idea it was still going to fit within the new rules when they were only booking one month out! With just their immediate families and a few close friends in attendance at Via Church in north Lethbridge, they didn’t have to modify their guest list at all.

This was a very special ceremony for them. Jeff’s father is involved in the church and performed part of the ceremony. Andrea’s son was their ring bearer, a very important role when they otherwise didn’t have a wedding party.

After their ceremony, we headed to Pavan Park for family photos. All of the cousins loved playing together in between posing, and luckily everyone was a really good sport in the usual Lethbridge wind! Once their family headed out, Andrea and Jeff finally got to enjoy each other’s company and really relax together.

Congratulations, Andrea & Jeff!

Trinity Reformed Church Autumn Wedding [Rebecca & Colin]

Rebecca & Colin, Trinity Reformed Church autumn wedding

Rebecca and Colin planned their Trinity Reformed Church autumn wedding with splashes of yellow, which worked out perfectly with the fall colours in Pavan Park that day! We were originally going to do portraits at Henderson Lake, but after a windy week I’m so glad we made the decision to switch spots.

I first met Rebecca at her sister’s wedding a few years ago, so it was amazing to see her again so in love. Her and Colin are a perfect match, constantly making each other laugh. I think there were a few times they got so caught up in the moment with each other that they forgot their wedding party was even there!

We did all of their portraits with their wedding party before their ceremony, which was a perfect way to spend the warm afternoon. Their families then met us at Trinity Reformed Church for their ceremony. The church’s long aisle and steps to the alter were perfect for showing off Rebecca’s beautiful long lace train on her wedding dress.

Congratulations, Rebecca and Colin!

Star Creek Falls Wedding Photos in the Crowsnest Pass [Tara & Marisa]

Thursday, September 30th, 2021

Tara & Marisa, Star Creek Falls Wedding Photos

Marisa and Tara got engaged while on a mountain climb (while Marisa was injured, no less!) and make frequent trips to go explore the mountains with their three dogs. They combined their love of outdoor adventures with Tara’s hometown to have an intimate mountain themed wedding. The couple wanted to do Star Creek Falls wedding photos prior to their ceremony, so we met up with them in Coleman for a mini hiking adventure.

Tara has tons of experience walking out onto ice rinks in heels after hockey games, so a little hike to Star Creek Falls with Marisa was pretty easy in comparison. Yes, she wore her heels the whole way, even over logs and wet rocks! We were thrilled that they were up for going all the way to the base of Star Creek Falls, which is incredible for photos.

After portraits, we journeyed to the other end of the Crowsnest Pass. Their ceremony was held outdoors at Tara’s parents’ place where we were joined by their friends and family. This was such a fun event! There were so many happy tears during their personal vows, and once the reception started, everyone there could not stop smiling. Tara and Marisa have such an amazing relationship, and everyone near to them shares in that joy.

Congratulations, Tara & Marisa!
