Canadian Rockies Golden Civic Centre Wedding – Alycia & Scott

Alycia and Scott chose beautiful Golden British Columbia for their wedding because it holds such a dear place in their hearts. They recently purchased a plot of land just outside of town and plan to build their future home there. We were immediately on board. They couldn’t wait to visit their property and make photos that they could commemorate their wedding day memories with. (Even if there were approximately 1,000,000 mosquitos waiting to greet us).

This ended up being the most perfect day. There were so many personal touches that made this day unique. Alycia’s mom handcrafted her wedding dress and bridesmaid skirts from scratch! They wrote personal vows to one another for their ceremony and we promise you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. (That’s the kind of stuff that gets us in the feels … and makes for the best photos).

Jen and Selorm’s Stylish Calgary Lakehouse Wedding on Lake Bonavista

We met Jen and Selorm for a beer at Craft Beer Market to discuss their wedding plans. (One of our favourite spots in Calgary for good beer we might add!) It was pretty clear from the beginning that Jen and Selorm wouldn’t just plan any boring old wedding. They had some amazing ideas about how to make their wedding experience memorable for guests.

First of all, they decided on one of Calgary’s top and most sought after wedding venues; The Lakehouse on Lake Bonavista. Three words: Drop dead gorgeous. This restaurant is run by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts. They are known for world class cuisine in world class settings. Definitely a fantastic choice. Secondly, they hired Olivia from Love Crush Weddings for decor consultation and day-of co-ordination. It’s like Style me Pretty and Pinterest had a baby and they’ve posted the photos all over Instagram. That’s how we would describe her style. She’s sleek, modern and whimsically romantic. Those traits are at the forefront of her designs. She pulled the whole day off without a hitch.

Bridal portraits at Baker Park in Calgary by PhotographikTara and Mark’s Calgary Italian Cultural Centre Wedding

From the first skype date we had with Tara and Mark about their Calgary Italian Cultural Centre wedding, we knew this was going to be a match made in heaven. Not just because we were excited to be their Calgary wedding photographers, but because these guys are a perfect for each other. While completing their PhD’s at The University of Western Ontario, they planned their Calgary wedding from across the country. They chose beautiful Baker Park for their outdoor ceremony and the Calgary Italian Cultural Centre for their reception. The food was delicious (thank you Roma Catering!) and the party epic (a big shout to Fayyaz Khimani of Pez Productions for rocking this party).
