I had so much fun teaming up with a group of Edmonton-based creatives to create some bridal inspiration for this spring. Here's the first of four looks we shot, a clean and cozy vintage look featuring a pastel blue lace 50s gown, a romantic bouquet of roses and dusty miller, nude peep-toe shoes, and a simple but lovely hair and makeup look. Special thanks to our wonderful model, Hazuki of Numa Models.

LITTLE BRICK WEDDING | LAURA & MATT

Laura & Matt just wanted to have fun on their wedding day. That seems reasonable, right? Well, sometimes the more elaborate and hyper-planned and uber-styled a wedding becomes, the more effort is required from the couple on the day itself... which can lead to less time just enjoying the experience of getting married. For this reason, Matt and Laura opted to keep things as simple as possible.

They got ready at their own home, and shared their first look in their living room. We did their family portraits in their front yard, and their portraits together (and with their darling "dog of honour," Pippa, at home and around their own neighbourhood.

They decided to tie the knot at one of Edmonton's most quaint, cozy and truly lovely cafés, Little Brick. Their guests gathered on the sunny patio outside the historic home and witnessed their exchange of personalized vows. Afterwards, the happy couple joined their guests for dinner and drinks, and an evening of true merriment and relaxation with their nearest and dearest. It was like the very best type of party, with all the fun and no stuffiness or stress.

Laura and Matt, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your wonderful nuptials. It was an honour and a joy and I am so happy for you both!

ST. JOSEPH'S BASILICA EDMONTON WEDDING | MEGAN & JORDAN

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!
