Pinebrook Golf Course Wedding Photographer
It was a day filled with so much love, and maybe even some divine intervention.
Kelci and Brad had been long awaiting this day – the day when they would become husband and wife. Kelci had everything perfectly organized and ready to go, so that on the morning of her wedding all she had to do was sit back and get pampered with her best girls. These girls had walked with her through various times in her life, and today they all came together to stand beside her as she married her best friend.
Overlooking the beautiful valley at Pinebrook Golf & Country Club, Brad and Kelci pledged a lifetime of love to one another in front of their family and friends. We had an awesome time taking photos with their gorgeous bridal party around the property and then as soon as we sat down to dinner, the storm clouds rolled in and soaked the earth. Then, when dinner was over, the sun came out and gave us an amazing sunset and fiery sky. It was the most perfect day.
The reception was absolutely amazing. Pops of Tiffany Blue throughout the decor, the INCREDIBLE candy bar, and the beautiful, heartfelt and hilarious speeches by friends and family made this wedding so memorable. But I think my favourite memory of all is when Kelci’s grandpa rocked out the dance floor with all the young ladies to the Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. It literally made my whole summer.
Brad & Kelci – thank you both SO much for letting me be a part of your incredible day. You have already been on many adventures together as a couple, but my wish for you is that this journey of marriage would be the most amazing adventure of them all. Much Love!
We had been watching the forecast all week before the wedding and with all the rain Calgary has seen this summer (seriously… enough already) Kelci made sure to have a pair of rubber boots which sure came in handy for our sunset photos after dinner!
I’m just going to put this out there… I will NEVER get tired of candy bars at weddings. Seriously… I love having a little bag stashed away for when I need a sugar buzz while I’m editing wedding photos! This candy bar was put together by the mother of the groom and it was absolutely gorgeous! And tasty!
Brad and Kelci shared their first dance as husband and wife to “Then” by Brad Paisley.
