Kathy & Ryan | Forest Wedding

My first wedding of the season!  If this is any indication it’s going to be a fabulous summer!!  Kathy was the most chill bride I may have ever encountered and Ryan is the sweetest guy!  They got married out in Kananaskis and it was perfection.  They invited their family and close friends for an intimate ceremony in the forest.  It was just beautiful.

The girls getting ready in a fabulous room at the Four Points Sheraton in Calgary.

I love a crying groom as he watches her walk up the aisle.

Incredible backdrop for the ceremony

I was in love with this woodpile and to my delight Kathy had no problem getting up there for some pictures!

Ryan & his best man Ben (aka mustache) work in forestry.  They informed me that this tree is a real dwarf mistletoe – who knew we grew that in Canada!  So of course we had to take a picture under it.

Ben was integral to this shot!  He did a great job of holding up the umbrella to shade the sun from making shadows on the couple’s faces. 

This is the resulting shot.
