Brittany + Noel - Bonnyville, Alberta Wedding Photographer

From the moment the day began, the warmth and relaxed nature of Brittany + all of her bridesmaids set the incredible tone that was to last throughout the entirety of their day. Their energy was uplifting and inspiring as they helped each other to get ready at Brittany's parents' beautiful home overlooking the river valley on a beautiful acreage just outside of town. Noel asked me as soon as I arrived at his house "How is she looking??", to which I ensured him that she couldn't be any more gorgeous right this very moment. Not only was his kindred bride-to-be incredibly stunning, but also one of the most organized, confident, hilarious, and kind ladies around. Brittany's calming nature was contagious, and was most definitely the catalyst to a beautiful Spring day brimming with honest laughter, pure heart-felt words, and an intimate love. I've known Brittany since we were babies, and I could not have been more honoured to be there to spend the day alongside of her, Noel, and a room full of family. DSC_5285

From the birch candle holders cut by her dad, the centre pieces crafted by family, Β the cake made by a friend, every single detail demonstrated not only Brittany + Noel's shared love for one another, but also the love that they, as a couple, are surrounded by each and every day.

I wanted to give a huge shoutout to my great friend Chelsey Shortman, who was with me every step of the way on Saturday, I know that Brittany + Noel also share a space in Chelsey's life, which is why there is no other person who I would have rather shot their wedding with! Thanks for being SOOO amazing Chels, couldn't have done it without you!
