GLENDALE GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING, EDMONTON
The clouds were in short supply for most of the day. It was one of those beautifully clear and sunny summer days. The morning went off without a hitch, the bridesmaids successfully humiliated the groomsmen (all in good fun, of course), and Gord was finally able to make it to his bride. Success. In fact, every portion of the wedding was a huge success. The father of the bride was looking for a participate in the wedding somehow, and decided to build an archway of purple trees for the aisle of the church. It took him months to get the design right, the size and spacing, the shapes, but in the end it was beautiful.
If you’ve read any of my other posts, you’ll know I’m a big fan of genuine emotion on the wedding day, and these two held nothing back. Tears flowed, smiles beamed, it was great. The reception was a hit too – Gord and Carrie made their entrance to the Glendale Golf and Country Club wedding reception to cheers and sparklers, and the evening was full of amazing speeches, emotional moments, and wonderful fanfare.
However, there was one moment during the day that was truly amazing. As we arrived to our photo location, a field just outside of Edmonton, we witnessed a massive summer storm rolling through. We were fortunate to not receive a single drop of rain, but were perched on the back end of a raging thunderstorm. The photos are some of my favourites ever.
