We all know weddings are going to look different in 2020, but sometimes different isn’t a negative. Different can mean unique, special, and one-of-a-kind.
I would put this wedding in that category.
First of all, this wedding was SO relaxed! We arrived to the MOB’s (Mother of Bride) house before Samantha had even arrived. The salon’s opened just days before and they had gone and got their hair done and then spent some time doing make up and getting ready. We took these detail shots in the mean time.
We headed upstairs to get Samantha into her dress with her mom and sisters. (All of them…. TALL!) Plus some individual bridal portraits.
Samantha had one of the nicest silk bouquets we have seen. Samantha’s reason for artificial? So she can use the bouquet again for her reception next year! #2020WeddingHacks
We then headed to one of Edmonton’s most unique event venues The Foundry Room in the Oliver Exchange Building (Upstairs for Iconoclast Coffee).
We loved the vibe. Exposed brick, giant windows the let in the natural light, good location, and interesting decor!
Just adjacent to the venue space, we had the couple do their first look.
It was time for the ceremony to begin.
Count them. 12 + 2 photographers + 1 event staff. PLUS a bunch on the zoom call just off camera.
Also, just want to say how privileged we feel to be included in the 15! Seriously! Thank you Sam and Mitch!
We stuck around the venue to take some Bride & Groom portraits.
We then headed to the Mctaggart Tree Sanctuary in South Edmonton for some outdoor portraits. The weather was PERFECT!
Just like that. Our first 2020 wedding in the books.
Congrats Sam & Mitch, we wish you two many years of health and happiness!
Can’t wait for your 2nd round next year!
