Elegant Edmonton Basilica Wedding.
Samantha and Adam’s Elegant Edmonton Basilica wedding was full of beautiful handmade touches, elegant details and a whole lot of love.
We met Samantha (Sam) and Adam two years ago while photographing the wedding of their close friend. When Adam introduced us to his girlfriend Sam we hit it off right away. A few days after they got engaged we received an excited email from Sam asking not if, but when we could photograph their wedding.
Over the last year we have gotten to know Sam and Adam quite well. From their adventurous airplane engagement session, to a Sunday afternoon beers.
Less than 4 months prior to the wedding Samantha’s mother lost a long and hard fought battle with cancer. We saw Adam be right there beside her and her family as they grieved and prepared to celebrate their wedding. Before she passed away, Sam’s mother worked to create all of the centrepieces and handmade details for her wedding. Hours of love went into making sure that Sam and Adam’s wedding was perfect.
St Josephs Basilica in downtown Edmonton hosted nearly 200 guests for Sam and Adam’s beautiful wedding ceremony. Sam looked absolutely stunning in her Beauty and the Beast, Belle inspired wedding dress. Her father and step-father walked her down the aisle and gently handed their little girl to her Prince Adam.
Adam’s grandfather, a retired Catholic Priest was invited to give a reading for the service to help welcome Sam into the family.
With the ceremony finished, the couple and their wedding party were ready to party. The afternoon was a fun and energetic portrait session at the Alberta Legislature building, a romantic walk through the Alberta Aviation Museum and a quick stop at McDonalds before heading to the reception.
The wedding reception was held at the Glendale Golf and Country Club. Guests were treated to an evening of hilarious (and often inappropriate) speeches and heartfelt toasts to the bride and groom.
As a gift to his daughter and new son-in-law, the father of the bride arranged for a fireworks show to get the party started.
Thank you for inviting Deep Blue Photography to celebrate with you and to capture you special day.
