Ever since we started photographing weddings, the one venue that has been on our bucket list has been St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Medicine Hat. This majestic and historic structure towers over the Medicine Hat skyline. Not only was it a dream of ours to photograph a wedding at St. Pat's Church, it had been a childhood dream come true for Chantel. She may have been the very first bride we have met who has literally been planning this day since she was 12 years old.
The only thing they may not have planned for was the unbearable heat. One of the hottest days of the year by far. Touching each other while posing was like torture it was so hot, and poor Jamie and the groomsmen were wearing all black. We had to escape the heat, so we made a stop at the local 7-11 convenience store, which was perfect as their wedding day was actually on July 11 or 7-11. How cute! Now these two can celebrate every year with a refreshing anniversary slurpee. We finally made our way indoors at the Esplanade to finish up portraits and enjoy the cool air conditioning I never knew we would be so grateful for.
