Summer is flying by and today we’re excited to share a sneak peek from Katie & Dylan’s recent wedding festivities in Sherwood Park, Fort Saskatchewan & Edmonton. We first met Katie last year when we photographed her brother & sister-in-law’s wedding. The day after Melissa & Jesse’s wedding, Katie called us up to tell us how much she enjoyed the experience of working with us and wanted to know if we were available for her wedding the following year. It’s such an honour when we get to work with the same family and we appreciate the trust Katie & Dylan placed in us before they had even seen one photo from her brother’s wedding. We had such a great day with them and their wedding party and it was also great to catch up with Melissa & Jesse and meet their new baby who was born just 5 weeks prior to the wedding.
The day started out with the girls getting ready at Blush Artistry’s salon in Sherwood Park while the guys were getting dressed at Katie & Dylan’s new house. After hair and makeup were done, we headed over to Katie’s moms where they finished getting ready before making our way out to Fort Saskatchewan for their ceremony at Our Lady of the Angels Parish. Since we were already out in Fort Saskatchewan, we took advantage of being close to Jarvis Park and took the wedding party there to do wedding photos. During the summer months, the city employs a herd of sheep to keep the grass around the historic fort neatly trimmed but we discovered that sheep must get a little tired of eating grass all day and get excited by the prospect of eating fresh flowers! After one of the bridesmaids got stepped on and another one was bitten trying to rescue the flower girls’ bouquet from one of the hungry sheep, thankfully the shepherd looking after the sheep herded them up so our group didn’t suffer any additional unprovoked sheep attacks.
After photos were finished in Fort Saskatchewan, we made our way to the Quarry Golf Club in Edmonton for family photos and Katie & Dylan’s wedding reception which included some great patio games like giant Jenga, beer pong and the cornhole game. Partway through the evening, we took a bug-filled golf cart ride out onto the course to catch the sunset and get a few romantic sunset photos before the evening ended.
Enjoy this sneak peek from Katie & Dylan’s big day and stay tuned for more great sessions and weddings coming soon!
Thanks again to all of the other great vendors who we had the opportunity to work with on this wedding.
