Zion Baptist Community Church Wedding

Today we are finishing up Natalie & Chris’ wedding photos and we wanted to share with you a few teasers. What started off as 5 to 10 photos quickly grew to over 25 images that we tagged as ones that we wanted to share. That seemed a little excessive for a single blog post, so instead we trimmed it back to mere 21 of our favorite photographs that we feel captured Natalie and Chris’ special day.

Natalie looked absolutely stunning as she walked down the aisle with her father to meet her handsom groom Chris. Their eyes lit up when they saw each other and there was even a hit of a tear from father of the bride as he passed his daughter’s hand to Chris. It was a beautiful ceremony held at the Zion Baptist Community Church in Edmonton, and the pews were overflowing with friends and family.

The afternoon was bright and beautiful and perfect for a trip to Sherwood Park’s Festival Place for portraits of the wedding party and newly married couple. We got to work with our latest lighting system (for all of your photography-minded folks out there) it is an Elinchrom Quadra Ranger and a 100cm Octabox; it was fantastic and we are thrilled with the results!

We returned to the reception which was being held at the Edmonton Hotel and Conference Center for an evening filled with heartfelt speeches and a skit which acted out the meeting, courting and engagement of Natalie and Chris. This skit was written and performed by the clever and creative bridesmaids and it had everyone in tears of laughter. The real party got started with our bride and groom sharing their first dance; they looked like pros thanks to an impromptu practice session earlier in the afternoon.

To Natalie & Chis (and your families), thank you for inviting us to be part of your wedding day and for being such a fun, relaxed and well organized couple. Everyone was so wonderful to work with and you helped us get some really great shots, thank you!
