This past Saturday, David and I were off to the home of Landan and Katelyn for the bride getting ready shots. Katelyn's dress from Mina's Bridal was absolutely stunning and she looked so beautiful in it - just like a princess. Her and all her girls were getting ready there which included her entourage of very professional -like flower girls (5 to be exact). They had the "v" formation down to a science for coming down the aisle at the beautiful Morinville Catholic Church. Katelyn had her hair done at Foiled Rotten/Central Hair in Spruce Grove and her makeup done by Melissa Bell Makeup Artistry and let me tell you, Katelyn's eyes popped! Her makeup was amazing. After we finished with her getting ready shots, we headed to Morinville where Landan and his guys including his two ring bearers were waiting for us at his parents' home which was a mere three minute walk from the church. We got shots of him and all his entourage walking to the church looking handsome in their tuxes by Derks - let me tell you, that does not happen very often. It was a great idea for some unique wedding photos.
Their ceremony was a full mass officiated by Father Trini who gave a lovely service. It may have been a bit too long for the ring bearers who looked very tired - as you can see from one of the photos we got during the service. I just love getting shots of kids being kids at weddings - they are so adorable. We finished off at the church there with family photos and flower girl and ring bearer shots. Four year olds can be unpredictable and the four year old ring bearer really did not want photos taken - but he finally did get into some which was fantastic. Although one of his uncles did do a funny imitation of him at the formals - see photo below. Which goes to show you what a fun wedding party this group was. You can see how incredibly kind and sweet the bride and groom are as we found out that on both the bride and the groom's side, they have known each other for a very long time. Check out the awesome bouquets which stood up all day long from Flowers on The Fly.
After formals, we were off to The St. Albert Kinsmen Banquet Centre for the reception. The yummy meal was caterered by Acapella Catering who always do a great job. Grindstone DJ did a great job of keeping everyone on the dance floor and the cake was so delicious and done by Jenric Mojica. Check out the cake toppers - willow tree figurines that Katelyn and Landan put party hats on! Love it!
Thank you so much, Katelyn and Landan for allowing us the privilege of capturing your special day and getting to know your amazingly kind family and friends.
