Sarah and Michael spent their first date two-stepping to a live Country band.  That’s when she knew he was the one.  During a gorgeous night in Puerto Vallarta, on a romantic Rhythms of the Night dinner cruise and show, Michael surprised Sarah with a ring and asked her to be his wife. It seems these […]

  One of my favourite weddings to date!  It was the biggest backyard celebration I have ever seen, complete with a giant reception tent, gorgeous ceremony set up, live music from Shantelle Davidson, bouncy castles to keep the kids occupied, and beers around the fire pit. Gaylene and Brian were happy to host the best […]

A place both the bride & the grooms mother are from, the final resting place of the brides grandparents, but most importantly a place where the brides parents met thirty two years ago the brides hometown of Janvier AB. Located 110Km south of Fort […]

When coast to coast comes together you get a fun filled, carefree celebration full of love.  This British Columbia girl met her Newfoundland guy at a party.  She cried on her way home, her heart full of joy, she knew she had met “the one”.  Judy told this story during the reception, excitedly telling us […]

Where to even begin with this one. When Carlene called me for maternity photos, I wondered where the time went.  How did we get here so fast?  She was barely a teenager, a lover of volleyball, an outgoing happy girl just yesterday, I swear.  As I photographed her and Chris together that first time, with all […]

During all weddings, I focus so much on the bride and groom, and those first few rows of family and closest friends at the ceremony, that I rarely truly see the faces of everyone else present and witnessing two beautiful people make lifelong promises to one another.  Shannon and Trevor’s church ceremony was no different.

Kaitlin was the type of bride that had everything organized weeks ahead of time, schedules laid out and a clear vision of how the day will go.  By the wedding day she was ready to relax and take it all in. While Events with Vizability worked their magic in the ballroom downstairs, decorating the room […]

As the saying goes, “everything happens for a reason”.  That couldn’t be more true for these two.  Their story is really something that touched me and many other of their guests.  I won’t tell the full story here, because it really is theirs to share.  I will say that after heartbreak and tragedy, Tracy and Mark […]

Brittany and Blair were planning a wedding at MacDonald Island when the wildfires happened.  Like many other evacuees, they were forced to reassess plans, priorities, and for at least a week during the most uncertain times, the future of their life in Fort McMurray.   As you can imagine (or as you know!), life was […]
