Love and acceptance and the best of friends and family coming together to celebrate. Friends were so important for both of them… friends basically helped plan their wedding… I am Daina’s old high-school friend from Moose Jaw, the flowers, DJ, officiant and so on… all close friends of both of them.
What a beautiful and unique location for me. Both modern and classic… The unique things that stood out to me were the bus outback, the string lights out back and then the cool purple uplighting in the reception venue during the ceremony. I certainly wanted to create some creatives in the neat black hallway, but constant traffic and people having a great time making that hard all night, LOL! And then the distillery and area were so nice to photograph in… especially with the busy crowds of people adding to the fun.
That content is only one element of a good photograph… I also strive to capture the emotion, meaning and correct framing in every photograph.
It was an all-inclusive venue that offered great service and allowed them to add elements that they wanted without the hassle many other venues seem to have. With this venue. it was very easy for them to “make it their own” without being told they were not allowed. Plus, the venue is in the heart of their favorite city.
My best friend getting married to his best friend and meeting all of their amazing friends throughout my visit.
I DO NOT get to photograph many same-sex marriages, maybe once a year if I’m lucky. And they are beautiful.
What were some of the best choices Daina and Kirk made for their wedding that you felt positively impacted the wedding experience?
