Brittany and Trevor's day was relaxed, romantic, and totally them. A chill morning of getting ready with Brittany's mom and best friend led to a gorgeous outdoor ceremony at La Cité Francophone. One of our favourite moments was seeing Trevor tear up as he watched Brittany walk down the aisle, and as his best man comforting him with a pat on the arm. The rest of the day breezed by and even though the rain chased us around during portraits, Brittany and Trevor's elated spirits could not be dampened. The reception was a blast with touching speeches, lots (and lots) of laughter, and some fantastic moves on the dance floor. We were honoured to be a part of this stunning wedding, and that we got to know this wonderful couple so well. Congrats, you guys!
Katelyn and Kyle are two of the kindest, coolest people we've ever met. Their wedding day flew by gracefully and stress-free, making our jobs easy. The ceremony took place on the groom's family farm outside Vegreville, giving us plenty of gorgeous countryside locations to choose from for portraits. The wedding party popped champagne to offer to all the guests, then hopped in the back of the truck to head down the road for photos.
Some of our favourites from the day were the old school RV they travelled around in, the bridal party's bouquets (made by the bride herself!), the 'keep your sh*t together' hanky, the bean bag toss competition, the duelling pianos!! (did you know you could do that?), and the constant smiles from the couple themselves when it sunk in at the ceremony they were actually getting married... after the tears of course.
Okay, I'll stop writing and let the photos speak for themselves. Be sure to keep an eye on the incredibly talented Arrow Films Blog for the wedding video!
Bre & Hunter's wedding was all about the details and quality time. A wedding day can go by so fast and the most important part -- the celebration of your love -- can sometimes get lost in the hustle. That's one reason why we love a first look. Don't get us wrong, there is something so special about seeing each other for the first time on your wedding day down the aisle, but a first look gives you a chance to be alone together, taking it all in, without anyone around (except your wonderful photographers). Then you can head off to do portraits together and finish the day off with a late afternoon ceremony and reception.
And now back to the details... Bre & Hunter's awesome personalities were reflected throughout the wedding in the guys' custom-made suits, their thoughtful Bride and Groom gifts to one another, having their dog, Cola, as the cutest flower girl in the world, their choice of kickass wedding band - The Barkells - bringing everyone to their feet to dance the night away, and with all the family, friends, and guests they chose to be there to celebrate. Our personal favourite, and an extremely special part of their wedding, was their ceremony arch, made with the wood from the devastating Fort McMurray wildfires. Being from Fort Mac, for them the arch was a symbol of hope, strength, and the healing power of love. It was an absolute pleasure being part of such an incredible day.
Congratulations, you two!
Jessica & Thomas' wedding day was incredible. They tied the knot in Wetaskiwin, AB, and we were honoured to capture it all. We loved the special touches like the bridesmaids' monogrammed shirts, the tree planting at the ceremony, and the gorgeous flowers throughout the entire day - put together by the bride herself! We especially loved photographing the quiet moments just before the ceremony, and having the lovely couple alone together for the first time as husband and wife for some romantic portraits. We've rarely met a couple as full of smiles as this one. It was such a pleasure to be there on the happiest day of their lives, freezing all the moments they'll treasure forever.
Congrats, you two!
