Shaun and Gord first met Laura and Brian at Christine and Curtis’s wedding back in 2008. Having been one of the funnest weddings they had photographed we knew that this was going to be another fun day. We were looking forward to seeing Laura’s family again and meeting Brian’s. They are both wonderful families that welcomed us to the day.
Laura and Brian had a superb wedding day!!! It was full of all the important things – Family, Friends, Joy and Excellent MUSIC. Laura was so relaxed all morning. She let everyone bustle around her while she enjoyed her day. Only when it came time to put her dress on did her emotions take over. Brian seemed to be on cloud nine all day, full of jokes, laughter and pride.
They had a lovely ceremony at the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Sherwood Park. The guests were welcomed into the ceremony by a string quartet and the Greenwood Singers sang throughout adding to the beautiful ceremenony. Laura’s dad even stepped in to conduct a piece. La Piazza Dasee provided the flowers for the bouquets as well as adding beautiful accents to the ceremony and reception. After taking some bridal party portraits in the river valley and the University of Alberta we headed over to the U of A’s Faculty Club to enjoy a fantastic reception filled with the requisite heartfelt speeches and, of course, some great music. (Did I mention Laura’s family is made up of talented musicians and singers?!) Laura’s sister Christine sang for them during their first dance. This warmed my heart because I had my sisters sing at Shaun and I’s wedding. It makes for such a memorable moment! The band Aura played for the rest of the night and had everyone up on their feet all night.
Thank you for the wonderful day. Here are a few of the photos that Gord, Shaun and I took.
