Northern Alberta Destination Wedding

post by matt

My little sis got married this weekend! I’m (Nat) originally from western Canada, so we made the trip out there for her wedding. I was matron of honor, so Matt was shooting without me for this event. It was a beautiful, ‘warm’ day in Northern Alberta. Larissa & Carl put a lot of work into the details of the day, so it was fun to help them capture those details and moments throughout the wedding.

The girls got ready at Brookshire Manor, a beautiful bed and breakfast, just outside of the city. Then it was off to St. Joe’s Catholic Church for the ceremony. The church was just built a couple of years ago & is a beautiful setting for a noon wedding, lots of natural light. Canadian weddings are typically a bit longer than American weddings, so we had all afternoon to get shots of the wedding party & the couple. Since it was only Matt taking the pics this time, he appreciated the extra hours and was able to get some really fun shots in a few different locations. We even had a bit of a break & a drink at Better Than Fred’s, thanks John.

Then it was off to the reception. The Sexsmith Civic Centre was decorated beautifully and the evening was a huge hit. Carl had a couple of his friends prepare a delicious meal, that was complimented with homemade sourdough bread by Loaves. The party didn’t stop until well after midnight! Congrats sis & bro in law! We love you guys and we’re so honored we got to be a part of your day.

The Brookshire Manor had huge windows that made the getting ready shots so much fun.
