Intimate Waterton Wedding Ceremony [Cassie & Chelsea]

Cassie and Chelsea, Intimate Waterton Wedding Ceremony

Cassie and Chelsea travelled south for their intimate Waterton wedding ceremony at the Bayshore Inn. As a child, Cassie would go to Waterton with her grandparents every summer. Choosing to get married there meant that now Chelsea could bring her grandpa back to the park! They could not have picked a more special location :)

Only their immediate family and a handful of friends were present and their wedding took place in Waterton’s off season. It made it feel like they had most of the park to themselves! (Other than us running into a random tour bus full of people at Cameron Falls!)

Their ceremony was instantly adorable as Chelsea started giggling uncontrollably as she came down the aisle. She only stopped giggling to cry at a handful of emotional moments during their vows. Meanwhile, their dogs Rufus and Winston tried to steal attention away by crawling under the guest’s chairs and excitedly jumping on anyone who came too close to say hello. By the end of the ceremony, they were so excited that they could finally get hugs from their moms!

Chelsea and Cassie were so great to work with, happily braving crazy wind and hiking over rocky beaches in their dresses. They rarely quit breaking into laughter and stealing kisses, and we may have caught a few butt grabs when they thought no one was looking.

Congratulations, Cassie & Chelsea!

Heritage Acres Country Wedding [Jordynne & Robbie]

Jordynne and Robbie, Heritage Acres country wedding

Jordynne and Robbie held their Heritage Acres country wedding on a clear and windy day, which is pretty typical Pincher Creek weather! This was our first time at the farm museum and we loved the versatility of the venue.

Jordynne rode in to the outdoor ceremony on her dad’s old Stampede horse Jazz. Not only was it an exciting surprise for guests, but exciting for Jordynne as Jazz was very spooked by the wind and in a feisty mood about this whole arrangement! Robbie meanwhile fought back tears as he watched his gorgeous bride come down the aisle. Even their marriage officiant, a family friend whom you may recognize as a local celebrity, had to stop himself from crying during the ceremony.

The chaos from the wind (and no shortage of beer) had the couple and their friends laughing non-stop. We loved how ready they were to ham it up in front of the camera. Once we sent their friends on their way, Robbie and Jordynne continued to make each laugh like crazy (when they weren’t staring lovingly into each other’s eyes).

After finishing photos around Heritage Acres, we took Jordynne and Robbie to the Boulder Run day use area at the Old Man River Dam. The first hints of fall colours were starting to show and it was so beautiful down by the water. Despite a few close calls, we didn’t lose anyone in the giant gopher holes on the shoreline.

Congratulations, Jordynne and Robbie!

Helen Schuler Wedding Elopement [Amberlea & Kevin]

Amberlea & Kevin, Helen Schuler wedding elopement

Amberlea and Kevin knew they wanted their wedding ceremony somewhere beautiful outdoors while still making everything easy for their small guest list. A rooftop garden was the perfect solution! They decided on a Helen Schuler wedding elopement. Only their limited guests, mostly made up of their parents and children, knew the big secret… until Amberlea posted the news on Facebook to invite everyone to their reception at the Owl Acoustic Lounge later that night!

After their emotional rooftop wedding, they headed downtown for photos of just the two of them. Their vintage Chevy owning friend met us by Drunken Sailor, a very special place to Amberlea who used to work there. It’s also where she bought her wedding dress! We had a bit of a scare when the truck wouldn’t start but it pulled through just in time for us to use it in the nearby alley.

Congratulations, Amberlea and Kevin!

Bayshore Inn Wedding Elopement [Andrea & Jason]

Andrea & Jason, Bayshore Inn Wedding Elopement

When Andrea and Jason planned their Bayshore Inn wedding elopement, it was important that their families be the main focus. Both were bringing their amazing daughters into this new family and they played an important part in the ceremony. Andrea and Jason each read special vows to their new daughters, and the girls then did a necklace ceremony for each other as a joining of new sisters. There was not a dry eye through the ceremony, with Jason’s parents and sister hugging the girls for comfort in this overwhelmingly happy event.

Rain did not damper anyone spirits, and the staff at the Bayshore graciously let us use their indoor space while we waited for the downpour to end. Everything cleared just in time for the outdoor wedding ceremony, with kisses of sunlight right as Andrea and Jason shared their first married kiss! Everyone shared a toast on the Bayshore Chophouse’s patio before we headed over for a few last photos at Cameron Falls.

Congratulations, Andrea and Jason!

Fairfield Garden Wedding Photos [Shaylee and Dennis]

Shaylee and Dennis, Fairfield Garden Wedding

The threat of rain wouldn’t stop Shaylee and Dennis from having their Fairfield Garden wedding at the Lethbridge Research Centre! Ready with a bucket full of umbrellas for their guests, they were prepared to get married outside, rain or shine. Lethbridge cooperated by giving us some lazy clouds that didn’t feel like raining on their day!

From our very first meeting, Dennis and Shaylee’s outgoing, bubbly personalities were obvious. Shaylee beamed with pride that she had been the one to propose and they spoke with so much joy of how they were including their daughters in the wedding day. It was no surprise then that their wedding day was explosive with happy emotions. So many people were crying during the ceremony that it took everything in me not to join them! Shaylee and Dennis alternated wiping away each other’s tears while the sounds of sniffles resonated from their guests.

Once the ceremony was out of the way, the happy crying turned into side splitting laughter. We could barely keep up with taking candids of all the joking around and laughing between them and their wedding party. Eventually we sent everyone away for a break before the reception and focused on some quiet romantic time with the bride and groom.

Congratulations, Shaylee & Dennis!

Henderson Lake Wedding Photos [Jody & Corné]

Jody & Corne, Henderson Lake Wedding Photos

Jody & Corné’s wedding took place on one of the warmest and most calm days this summer, fitting the mood of their laid back wedding. After their ceremony at the Lethbridge NRC Church, we met back up for portraits to make use of the beautiful weather. Their Henderson Lake wedding photos were a perfect place to start as their first date had taken place at the lake. We visited the bridge that Jody best remembered from that day. It was such a cute way to come full circle!

Their small wedding party were fantastic supports for the day. They picked up milkshakes for everyone when the sun got too hot and were constantly joking with the couple throughout photos. However, when they weren’t around, Jody & Corné had no trouble making each other laugh and smile!

Congratulations, Jody & Corné!
