Laura & Chad – Edmonton Royal Glenora Wedding

It was a glorious day on which I had the pleasure of working with Evan Noble. The weather was warm, the skies dramatically overcast, and the joy… The joy was the sort that bubbles and shimmers, that causes giggles and goofy grins.

My day started the the groom, Chad. Talk about unfazed by what the day would hold – he and most of the groomsmen were still sleeping when I showed up! The morning was relaxed and entertaining as the boys, all friends since school days, readied themselves.

On the limo ride from the hotel, we happened to pass the high school that the boys attended together. Since we were ahead of schedule (despite their sleep-in!) we hopped out so that they could explore old haunts and we could capture some fun and nostalgic images of the four of them playing out scenarios from days gone by.

Laura and Chad opted to have a first look.  I love these. There’s something wonderful about a bride and groom getting to spend a little time together before the ceremony. It’s like a secret they get to share. One final moment in which they can take each other’s breath away and and whisper affirmations before taking the plunge.

These two earned a special place in my photography heart as they had budgeted hours for photos. The result? A leisurely exploration of the University grounds and lovely varied images.

The ceremony and reception was held at the Royal Glenora Club and both were a true reflection of the couple: simple, beautiful and filled with laughter. That said, it is a rare wedding at which I don’t shed a few tears. On this occasion, however, at the end of all of the heartfelt speeches, the father of the groom stood up and sang, a capella, “Have I Told You Lately that I Love You” and simply slayed us all.  While the hall was being reorganized from dinner to dancing we snuck away with the bride and groom in the soft evening light…

A beautiful day for two beautiful people.
