You know it’s going to be a good day when you arrive at the bride’s house and hear the words “is it our favourite photographer?”; “it’s our ONLY photographer”. I have had the absolute pleasure of capturing all three of the sister’s weddings in this truly amazing family. Blair, my second shooter extraordinaire, even talked about how we could totally fit in as sisters/or maybe cousins and Blair made sure to get a picture with everyone to solidify that fact. A word to the wise, if she shows up at family events, you’ll now know why. But let’s talk about Alissa and Matt and their beautiful wedding which was held at Canyon Meadows Golf Club in the south end of Calgary. I haven’t had the chance to shoot there yet and let me say that it is a spectacular venue and I highly recommend it. I think one of my favourite parts of the ceremony was the wine box. Matt and Alissa live out in the country and often walk their dog along the nearby abandoned railroad tracks. So Matt handcrafted the box himself and used a railway spike in the design. The wine box ceremony is something that I wish I had done at my wedding- perhaps now that our five year anniversary is coming up, we can do our own version. It’s really something special and would be so wonderful to open in another five years. Because I have been at so many family events, I truly felt like family and it was just the best day. There is a ton of laughter in these pictures and although I am a pretty funny person, most of it is not a result of my jokes. It is simply just an awesome bridal party filled with the best of friends having the best time. We were spoiled with the weather; it had rained all morning and just as we left for the ceremony, the sun came out and gave us a sparkling day. Thank you for letting me capture your love and family and for making me (and Blair) feel so at home.
