Life’s Stair Case
CiJae and Scott’s wedding day revealed their history together and touched on the possibilities that these two will accomplish together. Speeches from their family and friends spoke of their love and connection; how CiJae’s face lit up like a christmas tree when talking about Scott, and how Scott was drawn to CiJae at the office.
Scott’s uncle Ted lead the ceremony processions and offered up a unique perspective based on seeing Scott grow up from a young boy to the groom standing before his bride. Along the journey of life there are many ups and downs to contend with which CiJae and Scott have encountered during their relationship. Uncle Ted recounted the time he saw Scott as a toddler climb the stairs to the top of the landing where he expressed his joy in overcoming the dangerous feat. Likewise he concluded they are now standing at the bottom of one of life’s stair cases beginning their climb together.
In a card to Scott, CiJae wrote “What we have has nothing to do with luck”. This line could sum up what these two have worked towards and will continue to have for the rest of their lives. Best friends getting married.
Soft Place to Land
Kris was described as the “calm to her storm” as his calming nature compliments Kimberley’s driven and passionate nature. Kimberley had known Kris for years and their love was officially ignited while Kimberley was away at veterinary school. They struck a cord immediately and their family and friends knew they were meant to be together by the way they talked about each other. During the morning preparations the emotions were running high and came out while Kimberley exchanged gifts with her parents. Her baby bonnet used for her baptism was crafted into a wedding handkerchief by her mother. The connection she has with her father is through their emotions, almost any occasion will move them to tears and this day was intense from the gift exchange to walking down the isle. Many tears of joy were expressed throughout the best day ever. Thank you Kimberley and Kris for allowing us to spend your incredible day together!
Working with Joel Ross is simply a riot and we couldn’t have had a better day together. Thank’s Joel.
And They Will Fly
Next to falling in love, one of the biggest supports any couple can hope to have is their friends and family beside them in their journey together as a couple. Felicia & Jeff are both blessed to have that support and they relish in that. The morning of their wedding, we felt that warmth and invitation to be a part of their day along with everyone there that day.
Both of their personalities and temperaments compliment each other so much, that Felicia’s father commented on the fact that he can’t recall ever seem them in an argument. He also mentioned that they seem to put so much into their relationship and compromise at the right times which this makes it much easier as a father to let her go. Knowing that she’s picked the right guy. The same could be said for Jeff. Sharing their dreams together. We had a great time working with our friend, Curtis Moore again. It’s always a rush to piece together a couple’s story in the form of a Same Day Edit :)
The Pizza Party
Who knew that going to a pizza party just to help a friend would lead you to the love of your life. Cindy & Will know exactly how that story turns out. Right from the first meeting with these two, we could tell there something special between them. Cindy couldn’t take her eyes off of Will all day. She was with out a doubt getting married to her one true love. Will is someone who commands a room as we heard and experienced many times throughout the day (what a great guy). We are so happy to have been able to put this film together for them. They have a great story we have been able to tell. Something we hope they will remember for many many years to come.
It was great working with Kamp Photography – An absolute professional and great guy to hang out with all day. As we have become accustomed to, The Gates on Roblin is an amazing venue. We appreciate everything you do for us. Enjoy the Film!
A Gift from Heaven
Like the title says, it was the way these two came together. It was really interesting to listen to the pastor go through the history of how Ashely and Ryan’s parents met as couples which lead to the story of how Ashley & Ryan finally met. Its not every day you hear the path that people take to eventually find each other. Ashley & Ryan are a very special couple who were destined to meet. It was a pleasure to spend the day with Ryan, the enthusiastic happy guy. Ashley was just the same, her sweet smile and positive demeanour created a perfect recipe for everyone around them. You could feel the connection they had with each other and their family and friends. It created an atmosphere of celebration and appreciation.
We were blessed to have been a part of this day. We don’t take it for granted one bit. Couple trust us to create a memory of the day that will live with them for a very long time. We wish them all the best in their lives together. They are truly each others soul mates. Thanks to Lucky Girl Photography, we love working with you, what else can we say :). Enjoy the film!
It’s Anna, Right?
Anna was described by her sister as being brilliant, kind hearted, athletic, driven, determined, well travelled and at times extremely excitable. A fitting description, we can assure you. Meeting Anna the first time over coffee and again the morning of her wedding, she was so excited about her wedding. And so were we. Her parents were so happy to see Anna and Barak come together as a couple; they both have a great appreciation for family which meant so much.
Barak is a practical & friendly person and it was said that he has a gift for friendship. He’s the one who would get things organized when they all went on camping trips. Barak has Hebrew significance meaning “lightning”, “to give light” and “to be visible”. At the reception, his father had established that the heroic side of that name’s meaning relates to his position as a teacher. He’d coached the students at his school into having a championship volleyball team.
The first time we met with Nada & John they were set on hosting their wedding day in the Rocky Mountains. Their idea of a perfect wedding was being surrounded by the beauty and majestic landscape along with their closest family and friends. The Paintbox Lodge is a cozy boutique hotel in the heart of Canmore, Alberta which the entire family could enjoy together. Having the newly joined families relaxing and dinning together at the lodge was the perfect way to seal this bond.
Nada & John’s story is filled with adventure and includes a group of hilarious friends that set up their first meeting. Jessie & Henry saw the potential the two had together and didn’t stop laying down hints that the two of them should meet. With the Calgary Stampede coming up it was a perfect time to arrange a meet up. And, as they say, the rest is history. With their mutual love of the mountains and outdoor lifestyle they quickly became a couple that sent a lot of time in Canmore. The ceremony was held at the Alpine Club of Canada over looking the treed valley and mountain tops. The Tavern 1883‘s log cabin style restaurant was a great way to incorporate the love of the outdoors for the reception.
We had an incredible time working with Jenn from Open Images and her images of the wedding are gorgeous!
