Michael’s sister Alaina married the love of her life, Brock, yesterday at the Four Points Sheraton in Edmonton.  Cindy Gannon of Metro Photo was their wedding photographer, and has now photographed all three of the Shandro siblings; (Krista, Michael, and Alaina) weddings.  We’re really looking forward to seeing the photos!  We loved the work she did at our wedding, and know they’ll be fantastic.  Michael snapped a few pictures during the ceremony, and we were the unofficial official reception photographers.

Here’s Alaina getting her nails done on Saturday.

Mostly I wanted to put this up to show my rockstar hair.  If anyone needs a wedding hairdresser, send me an email and I’ll put you in touch with Dao.

Michael’s mom took this picture while we were waiting to get family pictures done.  I think we’ll have to hire her as a Shandro Photo assistant!

Once we hit the reception, the camera was out in full force.  Everyone said we should put it down and have some fun, but we had to explain that we WERE having fun!  We love what we do so much, it’s hard to let it go, even for a family event.

Sitting at the head table definitely has its advantages.  I was able to get some neat shots down the table from where I was sitting, something that’s not always possible at other weddings! (Plus, we got to eat first.)

This is one of my favorite shots.  I took it from the head table, and caught Michael mid-laugh.

The cake was triple-flavoured.  Top layer: chocolate.  Middle: vanilla.  Bottom: carrot.  Absolutely delicious.  From Safeway!

Stand back!  She’s got a cake knife, and she’s not afraid to use it…

None of us knew what a fab dancer Grandpa George was!  Here he is, getting down with his granddaughter.

Alaina, hamming it up for the camera with a fake toss.

Wedding Bouquet

She got so much distance with the bouquet, it landed at the doors to the kitchen waaaayyy in the back.

It was a great night!  Thank you Alaina, for choosing me as one of your bridesmaids – it was an honour to stand up for you.  Brock – welcome to the family!

    Hi. I noticed that the couple got their cake from Safeway. I have a few questions for them about the cake. Would you please pass along my inquiry! Thank you! David
