What a day this wedding proved to be for all involved! Between the summer temps that broke +37 degrees Celsius, to a car accident that nearly kept me from joining the reception, to one of the hottest and most lively dance's I've ever photographed, this day delivered! Big time!
Okay, let's back it up... To start, Derek and Falon are without a doubt two of the nicest people you could ever ask to work with and know. From the moment we met, at a great little coffee shop in Canmore, I knew they would be a pleasure to work with. Listening to them describe all of the different places they have visited in the world, and all of the places they couldn't contain their excitement encouraging me to also visit, I knew this would be a wedding to remember.
Let's speed up to June 27th, 2015. The day was clear, warm and bristling with excitement as these two got ready to be married at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club. Solara Resort and Spa provided getting ready locations for both Derek and Falon; they were also the host of their reception. To say this day was hot, would be an understatement! To add to the heat, Falon's dress was hard to beat. She was beyond beautiful in her open back, low cut, beautiful dress. I loved getting to photograph her in it.
Derek and Falon prepared me for the array of characters that would be involved at their wedding, they did not lead me astray. The day and night were filled with laughter, great dance moves and funny characters left, right and centre. I am super grateful I was able to get to know them better, as I almost didn't make the reception... While on route to Solara Resort and Spa, a car rear ended me, causing quite a stir on the path to their reception. Between desperate pleas with the ambulance and RCMP, I was finally freed to join the couple (uninjured!) and capture the many heartfelt speeches and awesome dance moves that ensued.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Derek and Falon for allowing me to be a part of your super, fun-filled wedding day! I wish you both so much joy, adventures abroad and at home with each other, and with the beautiful life you two are building together. You both are one of kind! Much love! xo
Here are some of my favourite images from their day. I hope you enjoy! xo
