Luke + Laurelle's Wedding at St. Patrick's Church

Luke and Laurelle's Medicine Hat wedding was just a fairy tale! Their ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Patrick's Church where these two had the best wedding kiss ever captured (if we do say so ourselves). Very few couples attempt the dip and kiss; and even fewer provide the best angle for us photographers to catch the moment, as well as any guests reaction! Well done, Luke!

After we took a few photos with the couple and their family at the church, they took a well deserved break to ride around in the limo just the two of them while we spent time with the wedding party. This is the first time any couple has included "alone time" in their wedding schedule and IT IS BRILLIANT! Although it may cut into the time used for photographing portraits, more couples should consider making room for this as it may likely be your favourite part of your busy wedding day.

The father of the bride shared the most memorable speech at their Esplanade wedding reception. It had everyone in laughter and tears as he reminisced about protecting his baby girls from young suitors. He even brought out the baseball bat that he used to intimidate these young men. As part of his speech, he passed down this bat to his new son-in-law so he could protect his future grandchildren just the same. What a welcome to the family and start of their new life together!

PS...
One of our favourite behind the scenes shots at this wedding includes one of our favourite groomsmen... neither of us were blessed with height, so he helped out and Mitch jumped :)

Cara + Devin's Esplanade Wedding | Medicine Hat Wedding Photographers

Could not wait to photograph Cara and Devin's wedding ceremony on the Esplanade roof top Terrace overlooking the South Saskatchewan River in Downtown Medicine Hat. Just like any outdoor wedding, you have to plan for inclement weather, so we have not had the best luck with previous weddings planned on the terrace being moved indoors last minute. However, this lucky couple had the best day!

With the exception of running a little behind schedule for the ceremony, it was a spectacular wedding day! These two were surrounded by family and friends, not to mention a sweet little boy whose family would be made complete. The wedding reception is usually where kids really unwind at a wedding, too, but this time it was friends and family who enjoyed a wild night! We have never seen a more incredible dance off EVER! We had to fight our way into the crowd to capture the antics unraveling. What an entertaining experience!
