D&B have been guests and wedding party members at a couple of weddings that I have photographed in the past.
This time, it was finally their wedding.
D&B are definitely a couple who LOVE their families, and their families love them.
As I watched the activities over the weekend, I couldn't help but hope that one day my family will show that kind of love and expression to each other.
D wanted to wear her mother's wedding gown for her ceremony.
This was such a lovely expression of tradition and respect, and its very rarely something I have photographed.
You could see how appreciative both her parents were when she revealed the dress to them.
The whole wedding was focused on their friends and family just having fun and a chance to have a weekend together to bond. It was such a great idea to allow the two families more time to become one.

It was such a beautiful small town chapel.

The REALLY Fun Stuff!!

A&T have to be the most steady couple I have yet to work with. Three days before their wedding, their venue was completely under water. They had to scramble to find a location at the last moment, and THEY DID! It was a terrific location, quiet, beautiful and minus the mosquitoes, pretty fun. Best of all, they LOVED to share kisses!
Thank you A&T for allowing me to share the day with you.
Normally my blog posts feature recent work.
Today I wanted to introduce you to a fellow Calgarian and her Amazing Business- Sweetly Speaking.
Meet Barbara Forster
She has been operating Sweetly Speaking for nearly four years, but the business has been around since 2002.
Sweetly Speaking makes almost all their chocolates on-site and the chocolate is sourced from Belgium.
Sweetly Speaking has developed a method to create chocolates that are completely unique to you. They can create a custom mold of almost any object and turn it into an amazing work of art.
Yes, this sculptural piece is made entirely of chocolate.
If you are thinking about an ice sculpture for your wedding, they can create a chocolate sculpture (up to 5ft tall) instead.
White Chocolate, Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, they are all covered.
And of course, custom colours can be created.
When Sweetly Speaking first opened, their only focus was on weddings, but they have expanded to cover a much broader range of occasions and events today.
If you have a theme, they can create chocolates that suit it, whether it is soccer, hockey, cowboys, circus, if you can dream it up, they can probably create it for you.
Sweetly Speaking even has a liquor licence which allows them to create chocolate and wine (or other beverage) gift baskets.
For your wedding you can have chocolate wedding favours, a chocolate fountain, a chocolate sculpture, or even chocolate thank you gifts for your bridal party.
Who doesnt love chocolate.
This is such an incredible wedding. I was absolutely overwhelmed with all the colour and detail available. There was, as I have mentioned before, incredible food as well.
The couple had themed their wedding around fine art, and even had the cake inspired by Van Gogh's 'Starry Night'... So fun!!
This wedding was shot in collaboration with Edward Ross Photography
