Diana & Troy met through mutual friends in Calgary’s soccer community. Talking to each other was easy, but even with their instant rapport, friends had to intervene to get their relationship going. They’ve been together for a while, and have a young daughter who features prominently in their wedding story.

For a couple who love exploring the mountains, Mount Norquay made for the picture perfect location for a wedding. A Banff wedding is always special, particularly when its trails and paths mean so much to the bride and groom. Alena and Erik were set up by friends who knew they would be perfect for each other. They met on a casual date, then got better acquainted while camping. Erik ultimately proposed at the top of the Big Beehive trail near Lake Louise.

Angelo and Athena met online. Agreeing to meet for coffee, the attraction was immediate. That first coffee date turned into a conversation that lasted the entire day, even continuing to a second restaurant. Both of them love the mountains, and they decided that the beautiful scenery of the Banff area would make the perfect wedding venue.

Proposing in a photo booth? Strangely, that’s what Curtis did! But it makes perfect sense when you discover that Curtis and Laura have been together since high school, and have maintained an annual tradition of going to the mall photo booth.

Jared & Rhian are a fun-loving, adventurous couple with a love of the mountains and travel. They’ve known each other since high school, but didn’t become a couple until meeting again at University. 8 years and one shepherd-husky cross later they decided to take the next big step. The Apache wedding blessing meant a great deal to Jared, as it was also spoken at his parents wedding.

Lakefront weddings aren’t common in Calgary, so it always adds a unique and beautiful element to the day. Becky and Bryan really are two of the nicest people you will every meet. We first met Becky a few years back when she was one of Jenn’s bridesmaids. Great to see she found the love of her life!
Scott and Nicole are an easygoing, fun couple. They wanted their wedding to be intimate and romantic. They also wanted the feel of a destination wedding without the big travel budget. So they chose something a little closer to home. The River Café in Prince’s Island in Calgary was the perfect venue.
