A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of working with Muriel and her wonderful team from Creative Weddings and Occasions on the wedding of Yinan and Kefei here in Calgary. The ceremony took place at Wild Rose United Church (which has one of the most adorable ministers named Linda!) and the reception was held in the breathtaking Palliser Hotel. The bride’s make up was perfectly done by Trena Laine. Also huge thanks to my second shooter for the day – Lisa McDonald!
What I love about Asian weddings is how much respect they show their parents throughout the whole day, constantly thanking them and making them feel very special. And this wedding was no exception. The day started at the church where family and friends gathered to be with them on their day – it was one of the smallest weddings I have shot, less than 50 people. I love these kind of weddings – intimate and elegant.
The reception room was beautifully decorated by the talented wedding planners and every single detail was perfect. Before the reception started we headed to Stephen Avenue for some couple and bridal party photos and had a blast there. We found a unique location and had a blast creating images for this amazing couple! Ok I have a confession to make, internet, – since I have been playing Angry Birds lately (guilty guilty haha 🙂 whenever I get a shot that I really like I get that winning music from Angry Birds in my mind. There, I said it! 🙂
