Laura & Joe’s wedding has a really cool small-world subplot to it…we’ll get to that in a minute.
Meet Laura. In a word: stunning.
We met Laura through her friend Stephanie, who’s remarkable Trash the Dress session has graced our walls for months.
So here’s where our subplot starts. Â I wasn’t actually at Laura & Joe’s wedding – Michael and one of our second shooters did the honours. Â The reason I wasn’t there, is that one of my oldest friends Queenie was getting married on the same day. Â We went through awkward junior high hair styles, high school drama, and making it in Univeristy together, so there was no way I could miss her wedding.
I did go to hang out with Joe and his boys getting ready, which was SO much fun (thanks guys!) I can’t quite explain how much fun it was, but let’s just say there were omelettes, a little bit of South Park, and a guy with his own hair straightener.
While I was there, I got a phone call from Michael, who was at the salon (Beauty Lounge on Jasper Ave) with Laura. Â And who was with him? Â Queenie! Â As fate would have it, she was getting ready at the same salon as Laura! Â It was really cool for me because I got a chance to talk with Queenie before her wedding, and Michael (who was going to miss it) got to wish her well for us.
Here are the two gorgeous brides getting ready, and the amazing downtown salon.
You can see Queenie’s wedding photos on Perspective Eye’s website (great to meet you Gabe!)
I love this snap Michael got of Laura stepping out of the car.
Laura & Joe’s ceremony and reception were at Blue Meadows, and I love the strong colour theme and decor that transformed the venue. Â The bridal party strolled down the aisle to the ‘Pink Panther’ – fun!
Laura & Joe made the fabulous decision to book the Art Gallery of Alberta for their photos (a good choice because the weather was a bit sketchy) – Michael loved working in there and would recommend it to anyone looking for photos with really awesome light and cool architecture.
Everything about this wedding was unique – from the decal on the dance floor to the belly dance performance that wowed the guests.
Congratulations Laura & Joe! Â Your wedding was beautiful, and you have been such great clients.
