Taryn and Jordan's wedding day was meant to be. After weeks of rain and thunderstorms, the sun came out on June 30th and the skies were blue. The day after their wedding, the rain came back.
University of Alberta Botanic Gardens is one of my favourite venues for weddings. It is so beautiful year round, whatever the season. It is also the most wonderful open space.
Aga Khan is the newest addition to the site, and it is truly something to behold. I can't get over how gorgeous the design is, I honestly don't feel like I'm in Alberta when I'm there.
This is where Taryn and Jordan decided to have their wedding ceremony and photography session. And I was lucky enough to be a part of their magical day.
I started filming with the ladies at a beautiful location south of Edmonton. This house was enormous, spacious and perfect for the job at hand. I loved the big windows which just let all that natural light pour in and illuminate the everything inside. Taryn looked calm and excited for what lay ahead!
I was joined shortly after my arrival by the amazing photographer Grace of EarlGray Images. She and her husband Eric did an absolutely phenomenal job throughout the day and have amazing personalities! I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for photographers in the Edmonton area www.earlgrayimages.com
I headed to the ceremony venue before the bridal party arrived and prepared myself for the biggest part of the day. This is the culmination of two lives, two families and many many moments shared. I love the whole experience, it never gets old.
The wedding reception was at Beaumont Community Centre, a new venue for me and a very impressive one! The decor was just beautiful, and the cake had amazingly realistic flowers made of icing!
I had a lot of fun filming the speeches after we ate a lovely meal. A lot of people spoke to the couple which was really touching. I love getting to know so much more about the couple and their wedding party at this time.
I continued filming the night as the couple cut the cake, danced their first dances and partied with their guests. I am so happy for Taryn and Jordan and so excited for everything that lies ahead for them. Thank you for choosing me! I can't wait to create you something beautiful.
