Stephanie & Ryan
From beginning to end, Stephanie & Ryan’s wedding day was full of emotion and excitement! They each got ready in separate locations with their closest friends and family; Ryan at their Braeside condo, and Stephanie at a lakeside home in Chestermere. A few tears were shed as Stephanie’s Mom and sister both helped her into her dress, and Dad’s reaction to seeing her was a moment to remember.
They chose The Gathered as the setting for their day and I’m so excited I got to cross this location off my bucket list! Located just east of Airdrie, it’s a beautiful family-run farm and catered event space surrounded by golden prairies and blue sky. With the warm sun shining above them, Ryan & Stephanie read their heartfelt vows to each other. More tears and laughter, and then they were married!
Their reception was nothing short of amazing – in a tent with lighting to die for, rustic harvest tables, wine bottle centrepieces, and a delicious meal freshly prepared and catered by Elaine, Alysa and their incredible team. Ryan’s Dad delivered a very moving speech, and we all got to take part in a meaningful star blanket ceremony. Then the sun set and the party started! DJ Barbu absolutely killed it and the dance floor was packed from the start! We caught a few sunset photos and the night ended with a sparkler send-off. All the best to you both as you continue your journey together!
A huge thanks to the team on this one! For the first time of many more Lauren from White Apple Photography captured some photos throughout the day. Also Sophia Ritz with Todd Kwiczak for capturing our first Cinema for Tkshotz Productions. We are so happy to now offer videography to our company for our photo clients. Make sure you see the video at the end of this blog.
