Lauren + Joseph

On Thursday we took a short plane ride over to the land of snow + The Rockies to photograph our 2nd last wedding of the year in beautiful Canmore. Although it was a bit chilly, it was refreshing to see snow!! In my mind I relate Christmas with snow so most times I miss out on the anticipation of the holidays living in Vancouver. Seeing the snow definitely helped get me in the Christmas spirit :) Flying into Calgary always reminds me of the incredible weddings we have photographed in + around the city over the years. This summer we made three trips to photograph weddings all of which were uniquely awesome to each couple. I love that. Our first Calgary wedding of 2013 was on a family acreage just outside of the city. The amount of love + hard work that went into transforming the families yard into a perfect wedding venue was unbelievable. Everything was handmade + perfectly executed thanks to many family + friends + the amazing Shannon from Shannon Valente Weddings. It was a wedding I will never forget for many reasons. It wasn't just the fact that it had a lifesize lemonade stand, or that the girls wore cowboy boots, or that it was on an acreage that made it so amazing. It wasn't just the fact that they added so many personal touches to their day like stitching in a little blue heart in the back of her dress in honor of her grandmother. Or that Lauren made sure to take time to shoot some hoops with her dad + sisters...which was a regular scene growing up. All those personal touches added to the awesomeness of their day but it wasn't my favorite part. It was Lauren + Joseph and their incredible family + friends that made it a wedding I will always cherish in my heart. Every aspect of their day was fun, emotional, and memorable and was all about celebrating with the people that mean that most to them. I don't think I have laughed so much during speeches or had so much fun photographing a dance. Alberta folk definitely know how to throw a party + know how to enjoy it. Thanks to Lauren's dad for showing us his dance moves to "Lonely Boy" which definitely was the perfect ending to an already perfect day.
