Both Cassandra and Carlee work for Mary Kay and their makeup was very pretty!  Their friend, Ivy Scott did all the hair for the girls.  Carlee and Michael have a very talented family, Michael's grandparents made the all the flowers for the day.  Carlee's dad's face when he saw Carlee come down the stairs was very touching.  Carlee's mom was also tearing up. Teah Pike, a friend of Carlee and Michael was there as their videographer for the day.  She lives in Lloydminster and has recently started her videography company.  She was great to work with!

After we got the getting ready shots for Carlee, we were off just south east of Spruce Grove to Greystone Bed and Breakfast to photograph the ceremony and formals.  Michael and his groomsmen were looking very handsome.  Michael had on a grey suit while his groomsmen had on brownish pants with brown suspenders, white shirts and teal ties!  The look on Michael's face when he saw Carlee for the first time was the most touching expression I have seen in the past fourteen years!  The ceremony was performed by their worship pastor, Chuck Gasper whose ceremony was touching and funny.  Carlee and Michael chose to write their own vows.  I don't think there was a dry eye in the house when Michael read his.  Instead of a sand or candle ceremony, they decided to pour paint onto a canvas - three different colours to represent themselves individually and then their joining. Such a great idea.

After the ceremony, we got to explore the grounds of Greystone a bit more and discovered so many pretty areas to take photos!  I have so many favourites from this wedding!  Because we had more time, Carlee and Michael also wanted to head back into Spruce Grove to Jack's Drive Inn as it was a special spot for the couple.  That was so much fun!  If you've ever been to Jacks', you know it is not very big and so with a wedding party of twelve, plus us and Teah, we basically filled up the whole inside.  We got some great shots in there and enjoyed a yummy milkshake at the same time!  

We then headed to Woodbend Hall for the reception.  This was a very cool reception.  Not only did they have a coffee bar (as Carlee used to work at Starbucks) and a candy bar, but the menu for the night was Pizza from Royal Pizza in Spruce Grove!  The first dance between Carlee and Michael was so emotional, we didn't even ask them to look at us during it because they only had eyes for each other.  They had two cakes - one a Norwegian traditional cake (sorry, I cannot even begin to try to spell the actual name of it) and then a traditional stunning teal and white wedding cake - both done by Lynn Guenther, aunt of Michael.  The Norwegian cake was a cake of rings and tradition says however many  rings the bride and groom pull up, is how many children they will have. After supper, Michael's cousin, Brendan Mayer (who has his own DJ business) dj'd the dance!

Thank you, Carlee and Michael for allowing us the honour and privilege of capturing the memories of your wedding day!

Fun Wedding Photography at Roger's Place with Kirsten and Jim http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/6/fun-wedding-photography-at-rogers-place-with-kirsten-and-jim For some reason, the first blog I did for this wedding we photographed two weeks ago, disappeared into cyber space.  

On June 9th, David and I were off to the Courtyard Edmonton West to photograph Kirsten's getting ready shots.  Her dress from David's bridal was so beautiful and we loved her veil!  Michelle from Blush Artistry did a fantastic job with all the makeup and hair.  The flowers were done by Petals.  We went downstairs to the ceremony room just prior to the ceremony beginning.  Jim and his men looked handsome in their black tux.  A beautiful ceremony was performed by Carillon Cameron and all the ceremony music was prerecorded by Jim and his twin brother who both play guitar.  It was so special and so wonderful.  The families of both Kirsten and Jim were so amazing to work and to visit with.  

The weather looked a bit threatening outside, so we were not sure if the original plan to head to Hawrelak park for formals was a good idea, so the new plan was to head downtown.  We started at the outside of the Art Gallery of Alberta where we got some fantastic shots of the couple and then the whole wedding party.  With both Kirsten and Jim being huge hockey fans, they asked if we could head over to Roger's Place to do the rest of the photos.  David and I are always excited about new locations and this one was so awesome!  I absolutely love the shots that we got for them and I especially love that this was a dream come true for Kirsten.  I think the only thing that might have made it better would have been if the Oilers had been there and she could have got some photos with them as well.  

After we headed back to the Courtyard Edmonton West for the reception and a yummy meal catered by the hotel.  Revolution DJ provided some great music

for the dance.  The cake was beautifully done by Laurabella Custom Cakery and there was a huge surprise when it was cut - the inside of the cake was done in Oiler's colours - did I mention they were a huge fan of hockey and the Oilers?  

 

Thank you, Kirsten and Jim for allowing us the honour to photograph such a special day for you.  We loved working with you, your families and your wedding party and photographing you and your wedding party at Roger's Place was so much fun!

Spring Engagement Session with Kristine and Patrick at The Alberta Leg. Grounds http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/6/spring-engagement-session-with-kristine-and-patrick-at-the-alberta-leg-grounds On Sunday, David and I headed back to the Alberta Legislature Grounds to meet up with Kristine and Patrick for their engagement session. We will be photographing their wedding this August at the Hotel MacDonald.  Kristine and Patrick seem to have everything all organized and ready for their wedding day and don't seem to be stressing at all, which is fantastic!  

It was such a bright, sunny day and Kristine was fine with Patrick wearing his sunglasses for some shots - as she put it, she didn't see his eyes for the first year they were together because he always had his sunglasses on.  Nothing wrong with that!  In fact, most of the time I have mine on as well.  I hate bright sunlight on my eyes.

Kristine and Patrick both said they hated having their photos taken and did not take good photos.  David and I took that as a challenge and hope that they will like what we did.  Showing them some of the images on the back of our camera screen, Kristine remained diplomatic the entire time and didn't choose a favourite.  LOL.  As most of you who have been photographed by David and I know, we are very competitive and always trying to get the best shot.  

We cannot wait for your wedding at the Hotel MacDonald in two months and to work with both of you again.  Thank you so much for choosing us to capture these moments in your lives together.

Beautiful Newborn Session with Bayenah and Tammam and Their Beautiful Family http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/6/beautiful-newborn-session-with-bayenah-and-tammam-and-their-beautiful-family On Saturday, David and I were off to Bayenah and Tammam's home to photograph eleven day old, Zaina along with her big brother, Aws and Auntie Yem.  Zaina was an absolutely perfect model.  She slept through almost the entire session and we were able to move her and place her in pretty much any position we needed her to be in.  Her brother Aws was the perfect big brother too.  He held her like a pro and he was willing to help with rubbing her cheek, helping pick out a bow for her head and also letting us know the correct way that the unicorn tutu should go.  Both Zaina and Aws are so photogenic, but then so are their parents and their Auntie.  Auntie Yem was visiting and was such a proud Auntie.  It was fantastic being able to include her in the photos.  

Bayenah had matching robes for her and Zaina and I absolutely love the photos we got with the two of them.  

We truly enjoyed the time we spent with this family photographing them.  Thank you so much for allowing us the honour of capturing these memories for you.

1700s Engagement Photography with Lisa and Joshua at The Legislature Grounds http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/5/1700s-engagement-photography-with-lisa-and-joshua-at-the-legislature-grounds On Sunday afternoon, David and I were off to meet Lisa and Joshua at the Legislature grounds on a very hot spring day.  It was not hard to spot them in the crowd of sun worshippers at the legislature grounds as they were the only ones dressed in 18th century clothing and Lisa also had a beautiful white parasol.  Lisa is very talented and makes all the beautiful clothes.  

Their wedding is coming up very quickly this June and it will be a 1400's wedding with everyone in period clothing, knights, swords, and tournaments  Lady Jeanette will also be giving dance lessons.  We are very excited for this wedding!

David and I tried really hard to do the engagement photos in keeping with the 18th century rules - no showing your ankles, Lisa.  Although we deferred a lot to Lisa for her incredible knowledge of history.  If you ever want to know anything about any century, Lisa is the person to ask.  Also, in this engagement session, there was to be no kissing.  Joshua and Lisa have decided to save that for their first kiss at the alter.  

I hope that we did justice to this 1700's engagement.  Thank you so much Lisa and Joshua for allowing us the honour of photographing this special time in your lives.

Beautiful Traditional Filipino Wedding Between Dennis And Marife http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/5/beautiful-traditional-filipino-wedding-between-dennis-and-marife This past Saturday, David and I headed out bright and early to Marife's hotel room at the TownePlace Suites by Marriott for her getting ready shots.  Her dress, which was handmade in the Philippines was absolutely breathtaking.  The detail to it was stunning and it had a beautiful long train along with a long veil.  Marife looked beautiful and her makeup was perfectly done by Makeup by Ruman.  Helping her get ready were her mom and dad who had come in from the Philippines and her sister, Jennifer.  The videographer, Mark Jason Lacson was just leaving as we arrived, but as the day wore on and we got to work with him more, we soon discovered that he was the best videographer that we have ever had the privilege to work with.  The flowers were at the hotel and were so pretty and done by Petals for Less

After this, we were off to the Catholic Parish of Corpus Christi to catch some photos of Dennis and his groomsmen and to photograph the ceremony.  Dennis looked very handsome in his grey suit while his bestman and groomsmen were in black.  As a gift, Marife had given Dennis horseshoe cufflinks and Dennis also had Superman cufflinks, so he wore one of each.  Dennis is a big Marvel Superheroes fan and Marife also had a surprise for him at the reception - but more about that later.

The ceremony was performed by Father Joseph Vadassery and it was a beautiful traditional ceremony.  The flower girls and the ring bearer, coin bearer, bible bearer and rosary bearer were so adorable as were the two boys who carried the "Here Comes your Bride" sign. There was also a candle lighting ceremony along with the veil and cord ceremony.  

After the ceremony, we were off with the wedding party to the Muttart Conservatory  for their formal photos.  The whole wedding party was absolutely fantastic and there was not a complaint to be had about the hot spring day!  They were up for anything we asked of them and I think we got some absolutely beautiful photos for Marife and Dennis.  

We finished up a bit early, which gave the wedding party a chance to relax, grab a bite to eat and freshen up before heading back to Corpus Christi for the reception.  

The hall at the church was beautifully decorated and DJ Red already had some great music playing in the background.  Our photo booth, hosted by our very own Julie was set up and ready to go as well.  I started to work on the slideshow of photos from the day for Marife and Dennis as they had requested and had it done before the bride and groom and their wedding party arrived.  The cake was set up and was incredible (and as we discovered later in the evening, also delicious) and was done by a friend of the bride.  The surprise from Marife to Dennis was that although the cake looked very elegant and stunning from the front, in the back it had a Superman logo which was incredibly well done.  

The meal was one of the best we have seen with so much variety and absolutely delicious and was catered by The Sawmill Banquet and Catering company.  I think everyone enjoyed this delicious spread.  I know we did.

There was quite the number of talented guests at this wedding who sang some songs for the Bride and groom including a very young little girl who did two songs and sang her heart out, a niece of the bride and groom who was also in the wedding party who performed two songs, one of which was written by her, the sister of the bride, Jennifer and even Dennis sang for Marife.

DJ Red kept people on the dance floor the entire time we were there and was up quite often leading line dances for the crowd.  Mark, the videographer was up doing some amazing camera work capturing the dances with a huge smile on his face the entire time.  

Marife did a different type of bouquet toss which was quite neat.  She had a bunch of ribbons in her hands along with the bouquet but only one was attached to the bouquet itself.  The single ladies had to grab a ribbon and the one who grabbed the one attached to the bouquet got it.  Very nicely done!

Dennis also did a variation of the garter toss.  The single men had to take off their shoes, put them beside the bride's chair and they had to race to the spot, put their shoes on and race back.  The winner won the garter.  

Thank you, Marife and Dennis for allowing us to participate in and photograph your amazing wedding day!  We wish you so much happiness in your life together!

Adorable Newborn Photo Session with Yashvir and his family http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/5/adorable-newborn-photo-session-with-yashvir-and-his-family On Friday, we welcomed, Yamanpreet, Navpreet, their one month old son, Yashvir and Yamanpreet's mother and father into our studio.  What a very nice family, we truly enjoyed spending time with them.  Yamanpreet and Navpreet had some great ideas they wanted for their photos and I think we were able to give them quite a few of those even if we put our own spin on them.  

Yashvir was wide awake for most of the session and such big, beautiful eyes.  Yamanpreet and Navpreet were naturals in front of the camera and were so easy to photograph.  

Thank you so much for allowing us the honour of photographing your new son.

Fabulous Spring Engagement Session with Krista and Bryce at Hawrelak Park http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/5/fabulous-spring-engagement-session-with-krista-and-bryce-at-hawrelak-park This past Sunday, David and I headed to one of our favourite spots to photograph - Hawrelak Park to meet Krista and Bryce for their engagement session.  It was a beautiful hot spring day and the park was BUSY.  Krista and Bryce came dressed in the most adorable "Future Hubby/Future Wifey" t-shirts for some of their photos with the date of their wedding on the back.  So awesome!  We had photographed one of Krista's best friend's weddings a few years back and were thrilled when Krista contacted us to photograph her wedding this August in Round Hill, Alberta.  

Krista and Bryce are so friendly and fun to work with and we got some really great shots for their engagement session.  Although David did tease them about wanting swimming shots and I may have mentioned a shot of them balancing on a very thin downed tree.  LOL.  We had a great time with them and are looking forward to their country wedding!

Thank you, Krista and Bryce for allowing us to capture your engagement photos and soon your wedding day!

They were fantastic to work with and all so sweet.  Baby Patrick was almost a month old, but he was also a month premature, so he was still so tiny.  He was also the perfect model and the photo session went by so quickly because he did not fuss.  Aaron was a great big brother and held Patrick perfectly.  We tried out a new background and some new props with Patrick and he took all the poses in stride.  Everything we tried with him turned out so beautifully.  

Iris and Rommel had the look of very proud parents in each of their photos and again, every pose turned out fantastic.  Iris and Rommel were so helpful during the entire session whether it was helping with background changes, putting props away, helping to fold backdrops, etc.  Thank you so much for making our job so easy!  

We loved photographing your entire family and baby Patrick is absolutely perfect!  Thank you so much for allowing us the honour of photographing this special time in your lives.

Fun Spring Engagement Session with Kirsten and Jim At Jackie Parker Park http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/5/fun-spring-engagement-session-with-kirsten-and-jim-at-jackie-parker-park On Saturday, David and I were off to a new location for us.  Kirsten and Jim have two awesome dogs, Harley and Kokanee and so they chose Jackie Parker Recreation Area for their engagement photos.  What a pretty park!  We loved it!  So many great spots to photograph.  Not to mention how fun Kirsten and Jim are to work with.  They were up for anything and open to all our ideas as well as having some of their own.  Kirsten looked so pretty in her sun dress - so great since Saturday was our hottest day so far at 25 degrees!  Jim matched her nicely in his black shirt and jeans.  

They had the cutest sign made for Harley to wear that said, "My Humans Are Getting Married" in the shape of a heart!  Such a great idea.  Being animal lovers, David and I always get excited when animals are included in our sessions.  

Kirsten and Jim are so in love and it truly shows in their photos.  The smiles on their faces when they are looking at each other says it all.  We can't wait for their June wedding to work with them again.

Thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of photographing this special time in your lives. a couple sit on the grass and leaves with their two dogsEngagement Photography Edmontonbeautiful couple, beautiful location and beautiful dogs!

Fantastic Winter Country Engagement Photography with Kelley and Patrick http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/4/fantastic-winter-country-engagement-photography-with-kelley-and-patrick On Saturday, David and I enjoyed a beautiful drive out in the country as we headed towards Kelley's parent's farm for her and Patrick's engagement session.  Kelley and Patrick live in British Columbia, so although we had met Kelley, we had yet to meet Patrick and their son, Jacob.  

Although the weather was a bit chilly and the wind nasty, we knew we were going to have a great time working with Kelley and Patrick.  Kelley's parents farm is awesome - there were cows, horses, llamas and dogs plus an adorable toddler and a beautiful couple!  And Kelley's parents were so welcoming!  

I could tell right away I was going to be in trouble with the bonding going on between David and Patrick - lol.  Kelley had mentioned she wasn't sure if we would get smiles out of Patrick - but we managed.  And Kelley has such a beautiful smile!  These two are very photogenic!  And then there is Jacob!  Those eyes!  He is so sweet and his smile is a killer as well!  

We got some great shots during the session even while we had sunk knee deep into some snow and my falling backwards into the snow after sinking seemed to provide entertainment as well.  

Kelley and Patrick's wedding will be in September at her parents' farm and we are so very excited because we know it is going to be so beautiful and working with Kelley and Patrick and their wedding party will be so fantastic!  

Thank you, Kelley and Patrick (and Jacob) for choosing us to photograph this special time in your lives!  We cannot wait to work with you again on your wedding day!

What to Look For When Choosing a Newborn Photographer http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/4/what-to-look-for-when-choosing-a-newborn-photographer mom kisses newborn son on templeEdmonton Newborn PhotographyMom holding beautiful newborn son

Having been in the photography business for over fourteen years, we have seen a lot of trends and heard a lot of feedback from our clients.  So, I thought today, I'd try to help out a bit by telling you what we have heard that's out there in terms of different newborn packages and how to choose the one that is best for you.

When I was a new mom, I wanted photos of my newborn and really none of me.  I hated that I still had those "few pounds" to lose and absolutely did not want to be in front of a camera.  So, I got photos of my precious babies and none of me with them.  I still regret that to this day.  I mean, having photos of me holding my precious bundle in the most adorable poses, who cares about extra pounds.  

So, First, ask the photographer if they are willing to do a family photo as well as individuals of you with baby, dad with baby and any siblings with baby.  Some photographers include this in their sessions while others prefer to strictly focus on the newborn.  

Second, how long are the sessions?  Is there a specific time limit?  And what happens if baby is fussy and you can't get many shots?  Do they reschedule?  

Third, will the session be in studio or in your own home?  We have found that often not only parents but baby feel more comfortable and relaxed in their own home.  Parents have everything they need at their fingertips and have a routine set up for where they feed baby, etc. 

Fourth, how about props, outfit, backdrops?  Is there a limit?   Does the photographer bring or do parents have to supply?

Lastly, experience and safety - how long has the photographer been photographing newborns?  Is there always a spotter for baby?  

Capturing your baby's first few days of life is so important.  Tiny fingers, tiny toes, facial expressions, how really small they are.   The newborn stage is so fleeting, and so amazing all at the same time.  Try to get your baby photographed within the first four to six days of life before they have realized that they can stretch out completely.  You will get the best shots within this time frame as they sleep more and are more easy for photographers to pose.

Talk with the photographer, make sure you are on the same page as to what you are looking for and that you feel comfortable with the photographer handling your little one.  If you are relaxed, baby will be relaxed.  

If you have any questions regarding newborn sessions, you can always text or email us.

Edmonton Newborn Girl Photography with Skyler, Kendra, Kyle, & big brother, Bentley http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/3/edmonton-newborn-girl-photography-with-skyler-kendra-kyle-big-brother-bentley On Sunday, we welcomed Kendra, Kyle and their newborn daughter, Skyler into the studio along with the best big brother I have seen, Bentley.  Skyler was three weeks old and so alert.  She was not having any part of sleeping except for a ten minute stretch here and there.  But, she was absolutely beautiful and those eyes . . .   she was so sweet.

We got a couple nice shots of her big brother holding his newborn sister along with shots of a very proud looking Mom and Dad with their little angel.  Kyle and Kendra were so nice and easy to work with.  We loved photographing their family!

Congratulations on your newborn baby girl and thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of photographing your beautiful family.

Edmonton Newborn Photography to Welcome Baby Jayson http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/3/edmonton-newborn-photography-to-welcome-baby-jayson On Friday night, we were off to south Edmonton to photograph Robyn, Anthony and their new son, Jayson.  Jayson has the blondest hair I have ever seen.  He is such a beautiful baby.  Jayson was seven days old when we photographed him  We even managed to get a smile out of him.  Robyn and Anthony are such great people and we also enjoyed getting to know Robyn's parents and of course, grabbed a couple photos of proud Grandma and Grandpa with their new grandson.

Jayson was a natural model.  His hands always seemed to be positioned perfectly.  We tried out a few new poses with Robyn, Anthony and Jayson including a basketball pose as both Robyn and Anthony are avid basketball players.  

Thank you so much, Robyn and Anthony for your patience with us trying new poses as well as allowing us the huge honour of photographing your beautiful new son.

Thirteen Day old Newborn Photography Session with Jasbir, Mandeep, baby Ruhi http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/3/thirteen-year-old-newborn-photography-session-with-jasbir-mandeep-baby-ruhi On Thursday,  David and I welcomed Mandeep, Jasbir and their new daughter, Ruhi along with Mandeep's mother and brother into our studio to photograph them.  Baby Ruhi, was so wide awake and alert.  She wanted to see everything and fought sleep every step of the way.  She has the most beautiful eyes and extremely long eyelashes.  We did manage to get a few sleeping poses but most of them were her wide awake, looking intently into the camera and almost "posing" for the camera.   We truly enjoyed meeting this family and getting to know them along with spending time with their beautiful baby girl.

 

Thank you so much, Mandeep and Jasbir for allowing us the honour of photographing such a special moment in your lives.

Fantastic Family Group in our Studio for Extended Family Photos http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/1/fantastic-family-group-in-our-studio Last week, David and I also welcomed Naomi, John and their family into our studio to photograph not only their two children, but also, John's brother and sister in law visiting from Boston and Naomi's sister and her two beautiful girls.  What a fun group this family is!  We had previously photographed Naomi, John and their daughter so it was fantastic seeing them again and seeing how much Imani had grown.  The three women sure knew how to work the camera!  With two outfit changes, they were the perfect models for us.  Of course, John and his brother Daniel also posed great as well.  The kids, well, they listened and smiled and definitely take after their photogenic parents.

Thank you so much for braving the -30 temperatures and coming to the studio to allow us the privilege of capturing such special family memories for you.

Fantastic Family Group at Westin Hotel http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2018/1/fantastic-family-group-at-westin-hotel Last week was a busy week for us with photo sessions.  We were booked by Karen to do her family of 14 at the University of Alberta.  However, the day of, we learned that the University had changed their holiday hours and the doors were now kept locked.  So, we decided to try the Lee Pavilion at the Citadel but unfortunately, that building was closing by the time of the session so we only got a few photos done.  So, the family suggested we try the Westin hotel since it was just across from the Citadel.  Although, not ideal and very busy with a huge conference going on, we were finally able to get some shots in for the family.  

David and I are so grateful to the family for being so flexible with the many different location changes and for being all smiles for the photos.  

 

Thank you for allowing us the honour of capturing your family photos for you.

Thank you so much, Averyl and Levi for allowing us to capture your family's photos.

Family Photos at Hawrelak Park with Tanya, James and their Beautiful Family http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2017/10/family-photos-at-hawrelak-park-with-tanya-james-and-their-beautiful-family I have been a bit lax on our blog posts this past few weeks.  We have been incredibly busy with all kinds of fall sessions along with editing wedding photos from this season.  So, I apologize.  However, all our sneak peeks from those sessions are on our Stolen Moment Photography by Candice Facebook page.

 

On Saturday, David and I headed out for a fantastic fall family session with Tanya, James and their three children, Dakota, Cheyenne, and Kyra.  What a great family!  They were so much fun to work with and had the best smiles.  Considering it is getting close to the end of October, the weather was great!   There were still lots of leaves left on the trees as well as on the ground and Kyra could not wait to have a leaf throwing with her siblings at the end of the session.

Thank you so much, Tanya and James for allowing us the privilege of photographing your family

Beautiful Hot Summer Wedding for Kara and Adam http://www.stolenmomentphotography.net/blog/2017/9/beautiful-hot-summer-wedding-for-kara-and-adam Okay, so I am a little behind in posting this because I left for a road trip to Kelowna with my daughter shortly after Kara and Adam's wedding. and then came home and spent a week in bed not feeling well.   So, I apologize.  Luckily, Kara and Adam are some of the nicest, most easy going people ever.  In fact, even a bridesmaid dress malfunction on the wedding day didn't even seem to rattle Kara.  Everything worked out though when Kara's maid of honour came to the rescue having a brand new black dress in her closet that fit.  The girls' hair and makeup was done by Beauty of DL.  The beautiful flowers were created by Gayle at Champagne Bride on A Beer Budget.  Don't you just love such creative names? 

Kara looked stunning in her dress and she rocked all the poses we asked of her.  She literally had the poise of a model.  Thank you so much, Kara for making our job so easy!  Also making the wedding day run so smoothly was their wedding planner, Debbie Nazurkewick.  She was a dream to work with.  

For their wedding ceremony, we headed to McClure United Church where Father Jim Lochhead performed a beautiful ceremony.  And then it was off to the Legislative Grounds for the formals.  It was a great day for photos and we got some great ones of Kara and Adam and their wedding party.  All of whom looked amazing!

We headed to Delwood Community Hall for the reception.  Dinner was catered by the always fantastic Accapella Catering.  Their very elegant cake was made by More Than Sprinkles.   The DJ from Boom Town Sounds did a great job of keeping everyone up dancing.  

Thank you so much Kara and Adam for being so awesome to work with and for allowing us the privilege of capturing your special day!
