Norland Winter Wedding Album [Kaylene & James]

Norland winter wedding album

Kaylene and James had me design their Norland winter wedding album from the ground up, starting with selecting all of the images. I have just as much trouble narrowing down the photos as my couples do, so trust me, this is quite a task!

The album uses a clean white design with monochromatic details to match the gray, silver, and black colours that were used in James and Kaylene’s 1920s inspired wedding at the Norland Historic Estate.

This is an example of the Modern+ Wedding Album with a charcoal leather spine and a black fabric bag.

Lougheed House Evening Wedding [Lisa & Skylar]

Lisa & Skylar, Lougheed House evening wedding

Lisa and Skylar had a romantic and festive Lougheed House evening wedding in Calgary. The Christmas decor of the Lougheed House matched their red colour scheme and Lisa’s gorgeous red wedding dress. With the historic site already being decorated for the holidays, no extra decorating was needed for their wedding!

The wedding festivities began just after dusk with their ceremony. Their 14 year relationship in no way diminished their passion for each other, judging by their reactions! Skylar started loudly sobbing when he saw Lisa walk down the aisle, which resulted in her sobbing, and I almost joined them it was so intense! The crying soon turned to laughter as Lisa’s brother David performed the hilarious first part of the ceremony. Not only was it the funniest wedding ceremony I have ever attended, but it definitely hit a record for the most swearing during a ceremony!

After a quick toast to their guests, we explored the house with Lisa and Skylar for their photos. Luckily the weather was just warm enough to get a few photos with the beautiful exterior of the historic house.

We finished off the evening with their over the top family speeches which had everyone in tears of laughter, followed by some equally hilarious dance moves for the first dances. Lisa, Skylar, and their families fully embrace their humour and wackiness and it made for such a joyful wedding!

Congratulations, Lisa and Skylar!

Waterton United Church Winter Wedding [Candace & Davis]

Candace and Davis, Waterton United Church winter wedding

Candace and Davis wanted to keep their ceremony small and decided on an intimate Waterton United Church winter wedding. Their immediate family was there by their side, and everyone else will get to join them for a bigger party next year!

It was a beautiful day in Waterton with fresh snow and clear skies. We could see the amazing mountain views, and Candace surprised herself (and all of us) with how warm she was outside for photos in just her dress! The town workers were busy clearing paths around the park, allowing us to go to some of the most beautiful views despite the huge snowfall the day before.

Congratulations, Candace and Davis!

Snowy Heritage Acres Wedding [Brietta & Samuel]

Brietta and Samuel, Snowy Heritage Acres Wedding

When Brietta and Samuel had planned their autumn wedding, they had visions of golden colours and warm sunshine, not the snowy Heritage Acres wedding they ended up with.

There’s something about doing photos with Brietta and Samuel that always makes it snow! While snow in April for their engagement session wasn’t seasonally inappropriate, a September blizzard to rival the ones we get in winter came as a bit of a surprise! Brietta and Sam had chosen September for their wedding date for it to be more reliably warm than October. Sam had many family members and friends travelling from Brazil to share the day with them and they had hoped not to shock them with cold weather! The Brazilian guests didn’t mind and spent all day laughing (and shivering, especially shivering) because for many of them, it was the first time they had ever seen snow. They experienced a delightfully stereotypical Canadian trip!

The weather required a few modifications to their wedding. Brietta’s dad found a way to vent heat into their venue. You see, their barn reception venue is only used during warmer months and not heated! The wedding party gifts were not intended to be so seasonally appropriate but definitely came in handy that everyone received embroidered wool socks and scarves! They were meant to be a keepsake and instead became part of the day’s wardrobe, while perfectly matching their burgundy wedding colours.

Despite the weather, Brietta and Sam had the most amazing day. Emotions flowed freely all day and nearly everyone cried at some point during the reception. Their wedding party were amazing supports who wiped the snow off the couple, helped them through snow banks, and pumped up the music in the limo to get everyone feeling warm again. The blending of families and cultures was truly a cause for celebration.

The wedding day was too chaotic for their beloved dog Bakon to come along, but he was there in his own special way by leaving fur on all the bridesmaids’ clothes earlier that day, having many special mentions during speeches, and having his own section in the reception slideshow.

Congratulations, Brietta and Samuel!

Galt Museum Winter Wedding in Lethbridge [Jordanna & Deiter]

Jordanna & Deiter, Galt Museum Winter Wedding

When Jordanna and Deiter booked their Galt Museum winter wedding, they had their fingers crossed for a white wedding. You never know when you’ll get spring in February in Lethbridge! Even though it was cold, they missed the worst of our winter cold snap and were treated to a beautiful fresh coat of snow on the ground.

Jordanna wore a gorgeous red cape to stay warm in her wedding dress in the snow. Her dress itself was stunning, and a very proud internet order success story!

You’d never know by their faces how cold they were. Everyone was full of huge laughter all day and were incredible at tolerating the cold to get outdoor photography. Jordanna and Deiter were even more cute together than at their engagement session. This was especially true during their ceremony where they quickly switched back and forth from tearing up to huge grins.

After our very chilly photos outside, they warmed up with drinks at Italian Table before their reception back at the Galt Museum.

Congratulations, Jordanna & Deiter!

Calgary Lougheed House Wedding Album [Edina & Eric]

Edina & Eric, Calgary Lougheed House Wedding Album

It’s never too late to get an album! Edina had planned on creating her own, but a few years (and kids) later, she passed the torch back to me to help her out. I had to go back in the archives a bit to create Edina and Eric’s Calgary Lougheed House wedding album and loved revisiting this beautiful wedding. This is still one of my favorite winter weddings to date!

Edina and Eric chose some of the more dramatic black and white images that were taken inside the historic Lougheed House. These made for gorgeous large featured images.

This is an example of the Modern+ Wedding Album with a charcoal leather spine.
