Sandra and Ryan were married on a gorgeous summer day here in Edmonton. After getting ready at her parents' home, (which just happens to be next door to my own; her parents are my beloved neighbours!) and taking some portraits in their immaculate garden, Sandra and her two best friends travelled to the Magrath Mansion. There, in a heartfelt ceremony witnessed my family and friends from near and far, Sandra and Ryan tied the knot. Afterwards, they relaxed with their wedding party, having drinks in the shade and laughing, reviving themselves a wee bit before it was time for more portraits.

Later, guests gathered at Chateau Louis for an evening of delicious food, golden sunset light pouring in through the windows, lovely toasts, the most delicious wedding cake (!!!) and a rocking dance floor compliments of The Barkells.

Sandra and Ryan, I am so happy for you two! Thank you so much for choosing me to document your day. Meredith and I had an absolute blast with you and your families. I'm looking forward to hearing all about your European honeymoon. Wishing so much love and fun in the years to come!

Megan and Jordan were married on a gorgeous day, when the last of the spring cherry blossoms were floating through the air here in Edmonton. They exchanged vows in the breathtaking confines of St. Joseph's Basilica, then we explored some of the city's most picturesque locations for their portraits. They were kind enough to allocate three hours (!!!) for portraits, which was a photographer's dream! It was wonderful to explore at a relaxed pace, taking photos at several locations throughout the city while allowing time for laughter and lots of champagne breaks for the bride and groom and their best friends.

Afterwards, we all headed to Leefield Community Hall for their beautiful, love-filled reception. The majority of Megan and Jordan's family had travelled to attend their wedding, so the mood was festive and ebullient at this "destination" affair. After sneaking outside for some sunset photos, the happy couple joined their loved ones on the already hopping dance floor and swayed along to the sweet sounds of local band Uptown 780.

Megan and Jordan, I wish you all the happiness in the world. You are such wonderful people and it's clear you will make each other deeply joyful. Take care of each other and keep having lots of fun and adventure. Thank you so much for choosing me to document your amazing day!
