K+F's wedding was beyond beautiful, and these 2 are really the sweetest together, the way they light up when they look at each other speaks volumes. My favorite part of their wedding day was the speeches - it's so cool to hear such moving heartfelt speeches and learn all the dimensions of people who are already this interesting. Plus, I love photographing weddings at the Enjoy Center - I'm so happy we have this gorgeous light-filled space as an Edmonton wedding venue option.

Chloe and Shane planned a pretty autumn outdoor ceremony, but an intense early snowstorm meant a last minute change of venue. But it didn't matter one bit, these two took it in stride, and myself, along with a few nearest and dearest, experienced one of the most romantic and intimate ceremonies in a boardroom at their hotel. And of course we still explored outdoors to capture a little bit of that first snowfall magic before their family dinner at El Cortez (YUM!!!) We also took photos in their amazingly decorated space. These two have so much fun together, and I seriously loved photographing their day!
I've known Angela since she was a teenager because I LOVE her family's amazing vegan restaurant in Edmonton, Padmanadi. Every single thing on the menu is delicious (a blend of Indonesian, Chinese, Thai, and Indian veggie cuisine, please go there if you've never been) But more importantly, Angela's family is amazing - the most friendly, big hearted, loving people you will ever meet. I've spent hours chatting with Angela's father Kasim about everything under the sun, they treat all the people who have dined at their restaurant as family.
Wandy met Angela when he began working at the restaurant years ago, and their love blossomed over time, much like the lotus that grace their beautiful restaurant. If you've eaten at Padmanadi, you've been a witness to this special relationship. I was SO thrilled when they were engaged and beyond honored to photograph their wedding. It was also my first traditional Buddhist temple ceremony. I had a hard time making this post a reasonable length because this day was so emotional and special, but here are some of my very favorites !
I'm going to call this one "Rainy day love story at paaaarty central!" (Sexy smooches in a rad old Ford Mustang are an added Hollywood-ish bonus touch!)

Jazmine's smile can light up a room, and Dan totally looks like Malibu Ken. Not only are these 2 complete and total hotties, they're also the sweetest, kindest people ever. They were so happy and just plain excited to be getting married, and their joy during their wedding ceremony was obvious to every single person - these 2 were made to be together. I had so much fun at their Edmonton Valley Zoo wedding! Plus, spring weddings always make me feel so happy and hopeful about summer around the corner!
