Yay I am so happy to finally blog this beautiful rooftop urban wedding in downtown Calgary. I knew I like Jon and Sarah from the moment I met them. A little shy but so obviously perfect for each other, I was excited to capture that! Then I was blown away buy the elegant details at their wedding. Pine for Cedar did the floral design and just wow - and she happens to be Sarah’s sister in law. Sarah’s gowns with a taupe underlay was both modern and romantic, a stunner from Novia Mia. Jon’s details were hip and fresh. Okay so a rooftop wedding is just so cool, looking down at Stephen Avenue here in Calgary and the heritage facades on the buildings across the street from The Calgary Marriott. Our Mayor, Naheed Nenshi happened to be in a meeting at the hotel and came down to congratulate the couple and was a cool as can be. Sticking to the East Village area for portraits, we found adorable props like local mural artwork and a vintage bike, kindly lent to us by EV Living. It was a day to remember, with a speech from Sarah’s dad that had everyone, including myself howling with laughter and crying.
It was great to meet this adorable couple who travelled from the U.S. to visit Banff. I know I am lucky that in less that 2 hours I can visit Banff National Park and I love to show it off. It rained but that didn’t matter. After their 1st year of marriage, their love shone bright.
Tomorrow is their big day. I can't wait for Melanie and Cori's wedding. They are hilarious and definitely a close and loving couple. It is an honour to be chosen to photograph their wedding as Melanie is a talented photographer herself!
Paige and Kyle wanted to have Lilacs in their engagement photos which I think is so romantic as they met at Lilac festival in Calgary. It turned out to be a dreamy night with this beautiful couple as we explored some inner city heritage buildings and gardens.
