I started off the morning with the men, who were getting ready in Room 206 at the Lethbridge Coast Hotel. The guys were wonderful right from when I arrived – even arranged some details for me so that I could take some photos! Nick’s gift to the men were some wiskey glasses with each of their names engraved on the surface.

Next, I made my way over to the ladies, who were already looking beautiful, since their hair and makeup was already complete! Karen, the maid of honour, even helped me rig something up so that we were able to hang the dress in the window – which made for some gorgeous shots.

When everyone was ready, we made our way down to the Ballroom for Shawna & Nick’s indoor wedding at the Coast Hotel. Everything was decorated with white, and looked very elegant.

The Ceremony was an emotional one, with Nick tearing up (this happened to be Shawna’s favourite part of the wedding day – since she had told me earlier in the day that he “wasn’t a cryer”)!

After the ceremony, we headed just outside of the Coast Hotel to take some family photos! The spot that we chose ended up being just lovely, with some gorgeous lighting a a beautiful reflective surface behind us. This is only a very small fraction of the family groupings that we photographed!

With the family photos complete, we formed a little van-convoy and headed over to Henderson Lake for some bridal party and bride & groom formals. Lethbridge decided to welcome me back with a lot of wind – which made for some pretty hilarious photos as well:And now, my favourite part – the bride & groom at Henderson Lake.

Finally, we drove back to the Coast Hotel Lethbridge for their reception in the Ballroom on the main floor.
