Our Dream Wedding In Edmonton
Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.The morning of Kristina and Ryan’s wedding was a little soggy. Well, a lot soggy actually. So much so that the initial first look location had to be scrapped at the last minute due to the rain and mud. And while that may have been a problem for some, these two shrugged it off like champs. Which totally fits with their personalities. What they were able to do, you see, was make their wedding a completely
relaxed affair, a party all day long, and they did it in style! The relaxed part was key, and was visible in all aspects of their celebration. Kristina opted to go with unique floral hair pieces for her bridesmaids rather than bouquets, each bridesmaid wore her own unique dress, they rented a party bus so they could all travel around together in comfort, and the evening meal was a stand up reception with a fantastic assortment of food and tapas.
“We wanted our wedding to be relaxed and have more of a party atmosphere, while still being beautiful. As I started to plan out a look, I found myself referring to it as A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I wanted a lot of lighting to make it feel almost ethereal, greenery to bring in a natural element and soft touches of creams, blushes and nude tones.” ~Kristina
Great Locations, Wonderful Flow
It’s not surprising to hear the guests had a great time! Kristina and Ryan positively glowed all day long, but what really struck me was the perfect meshing of elements from the day. Their venue, the Yellowhead Brewery, was the perfect size for their guests, making it feel warm and cozy without being too crowded. They opted to go with a first look and a later ceremony to make the experience more
enjoyable for their guests, and it worked exactly as planned. We were able to find some amazing locations for the wedding photos, and I have to say this is one stunning wedding party! And while the day may have started with some dour weather, the storm passed just as the first look was about to happen, and what followed was a fantastic August summer day.
Wedding Dreams Do Come True
This is the kind of wedding I dream of – couples who have a great sense of style and definitely want everything to look great, but when it comes right down to it, they definitely know what really matters – friends, family, smiling, enjoying the moment, laughing a lot, and joining your life to the person who matters the most to you in the
whole world! Add it all up, and it’s a recipe for great photos, and great friendships. It makes me incredibly happy to see two people so clearly into each other! And, it didn’t hurt that despite the early ugly weather, everything came together to help make this one of the highlights of my summer.
