Haley spends a lot of time posting on our blog, so I’m going to give her a break and post a wedding of mine.
You’ll know from Holly & Ben’s engagement post that this was a very emotional wedding – Ben will shortly be moving away and they will start a long distance relationship for a while. We hope these images will bring them lots of joy while they are apart.
Special thanks to Jennifer Bergman of Jennifer Bergman Weddings for doing day-of wedding coordination for Holly & Ben!
I got a real kick out of going to Eveline Charles in West Edmonton Mall for Holly’s hair and makeup – my pictures were everywhere.
Holly looked beautiful in her dress and the colour scheme in their house is great.
I love the photos from Holly & Ben’s reveal (or, first glance) – they chose the Timm’s Center at the U of A, which was perfect with the big sweeping staircase.
Holly asked that I make sure to keep a few of the bloopers from the wedding – this is one of my favourites.
Holly has a quick touch-up before the ceremony at Ben’s family acreage.
The reception back at the Fantasyland Hotel was full of funny speeches, and fun games.
This game was for the prize of the garter. Â All single guys had to dance with these bags on their head, and Holly would choose who was the best dancer. Â She eliminated dancers by taking the bags off their heads, and in the end Ben was the best dancer. Â Although it might have been rigged…
They had a really fun DJ (Joe) who helped out with the games, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Holly & Ben for welcoming me into your wedding. I had a great time with you and your families, and I wish you love and happiness in the next stage of your life together.
