It’s a small world. I think we can all agree on that. But when we book a wedding with a couple from Toronto because the bride-to-be happens to be great friends with a girl from Calgary whose sister (that lives in Edmonton) happens to be not only a great friend of ours, but was the bride of one of the first weddings we ever shot as a team, it makes the world seem even smaller!!
Grace & Mark are awesome – let me just get that out of the way. We enjoyed being with them on their wedding day a great deal. They were so laid back and rolled with the punches that were thrown their way. That includes changing the VENUE for the wedding ceremony the MORNING OF the wedding!! That’s right! The weather was not going to be good enough to have the outdoor wedding they had planned for, so they arranged to have the ceremony at the same place they were having the reception. And truth be told, if you didn’t know that fact, you would not have known it wasn’t supposed to have been held at the Matrix Hotel all along. Everything came together so perfectly, it was awesome to be a part of.
Luck was also on our side that day though. We spent our time between the ceremony and the reception at Rocky Mountain Icehouse having some food, drinks, and lots of laughs. The luck I speak of is that we JUST made it to the pub before it started to pour down from the skies. And then we lucked out again when the rain stopped just long enough for us to go out to the alleyways around the pub and get some beautiful shots of this fantastic couple (and their awesome wedding party too!).
Grace & Mark made their way back to Toronto a few days after the wedding but we recently had the pleasure of meeting with Grace when she came back to visit her Edmonton family. Once again we realized why we love doing what we do. We meet some truly fantastic people and love it when they appreciate what we do for them. Grace is certainly appreciative of our work and that makes us grin gigantic smiles!
We leave you now with a selection of the photos we captured on that day in June… enjoy!
