"Let there be more joy and laughter in your living."
Imagine a wedding with a sweet and charming simplicity you thought only belonged to weddings of another time. Well, Kate and Dan's day made us forget that weddings are supposed to be complicated and remember how beautiful it is to celebrate two people falling in love. Their beautiful spring wedding took place at Calgary Community Reformed Church, with an intimate ceremony in the beautiful old sanctuary. Soft white light flooded in through the large glass windows of this historic building as they said their vows to each other.
After the ceremony they had a casual cafe style reception! And then went and took pictures in the city core at locations that held special significance for them as a couple; starting out downtown at East Village by the Simmons Building and the Riverwalk. Latter we ended our day at McHugh Bluff to take advantage of the incredible view of the Calgary city skyline, but more importantly because this was a place were Kate and Dan had spent many evenings together talking an dreaming about their future. We love it when our couples pick a sentimental spot to have their wedding portraits taken, because when there are already memories & history in that place it adds another layer of significance to the stories you will share when flipping through your album with the grandkids one day.
As you'll see in their images these two were naturals, totally relaxed and genuine in front of the camera and so sweet towards each other. And every member of their wedding party showed up to make this day amazing, we were blown away by how kind and helpful they were to us as the photographers.
We are so grateful to have be part of this celebration and once again feel that a couple who started out as clients have become friends! Kate and Dan asked for wedding photos that were not contrived but real and filled with joy. I'll let you been the judge as you scroll through this post.
