Kyle & Meryl are a match made in heaven… or on the running track. At their reception, Kyle’s parents recounted how Kyle had told them that he found someone special in Meryl – “I can’t believe I met someone who likes doing all the same things as I do!” They run, swim, bike & triathlons, climb mountains, and all the time encourage each other to be the best version of themselves.
The morning of their wedding day felt so wonderful. Meryl and her best girls relaxed and had their hair and makeup done while her mom cooked them a fabulous quinoa and salmon lunch. We drove to the first look location while Meryl put the finishing touches on the vows she would later read to Kyle in front of all their family and friends. Somehow I managed to get stung by a wasp (btw who knew wasps could have nests underground??). But the bridal party looked gorgeous in the lavender & sage colour palette, and we had a such a great time taking photos that I (almost) forgot about the throbbing pain;)
The ceremony was held outdoors at the SCA Community Association, and was beautiful and casual. Kyle & Meryl greeted all of their guests after the ceremony by handing out drinks to get the party started! The reception was super fun and laid back, with yummy appetizers circulating and plenty of drinks to go around. The speeches had everyone roaring with laughter and at the end of the night Kyle & Meryl tore up the dance floor in a fast paced two-step filled with enough of spins and dips to make their guests cheer with delight.
Meryl & Kyle – thank you for including me in your amazing wedding day. I’ve had so much fun hanging out with you this year and I think that you are both such incredible people. I wish you a lifetime of joy and adventure together as you keep pursuing your dreams.
Their cute little puppy was even decked out in his fanciest clothes for the special occasion!Even though the day was cloudy we caught the sun right before it dipped below the horizon. Anytime I can sneak in a few shots during this dreamy, golden light my heart does a happy dance:) They make for some of the most romantic photos of the day.
This next photo is a little different than my usual style, but with the vintage feel of the day and a couple who absolutely killed the serious look, we were able to create this photo that looks like something from the 1920’s – and I absolutely love it!
Photography by Carlin Anquist, Calgary Wedding Photographer, Strathcona Aspen Wedding Photographer. I am available for weddings across Canada and accept a limited number of destination weddings each year. Your wedding is a beautiful day, but even more than capturing the flowers and the dress, I want to capture your love; that spark that ignites when you look at your new husband or wife. I want to capture the silly things you do to make each other laugh. I want to tell your love story in a beautifully artistic way that can be told over and over again as your children and grandchildren turn through the pages of your wedding album. If you would like some more information regarding wedding photography collections, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow my most recent work on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google Plus!
