I loved getting to work with Michael and Liana for their wedding in Canmore, Alberta this past August 2015. Their wedding day called for quite a bit of rain and occasional thunder storms. It rained (very hard) when we wanted it to, and cleared just enough to provide some really lovely, moody wedding photos when we wanted the rain to stop.
This couple loves the outdoors so much. It is ingrained in their past times, their work and their connection to one another. It was so great to work with them, and know that going outside for portraits was the only options for the day. I also loved their decorations for their wedding! Lots of outdoor themed table settings and name cards were made by the Bride herself. She did such a great job!
The couple got ready in beautiful rooms provided by Solara Resort and Spa in Canmore, AB. The mood was light, relaxed, but full of excitement for the day ahead. Michael and Liana got married at Our Lady of the Rockies Parish in Canmore, AB. It was my first time photographing a wedding at this church. The service was lovely.
After an afternoon of wandering the valley bottoms and some hillside sites in the Canmore area, we retreated from the cool weather to the comforts of the Cornerstone Theatre for the reception. Lots of humorous speeches and children playing about, lead to a wonderful wrap up of their day.
Thank you, Liana and Michael, for bringing me along to document your day and feel like a member of your family. It was so great getting to work with you, and your families! Warmest wishes for a great life adventuring alongside each other. Many blessings to you both, xo
I would also like to thank Andrew Lunt Photography for coming out and offering a hand at their wedding.
