RIMROCK RESORT WEDDING, BANFF
When you get engaged in Prague, you are setting the bar pretty high. Some may find that a hard act to follow – but Annette and Patrick rose to the challenge, and planned their gorgeous rooftop wedding at the RimRock Resort in Banff. Surrounded by the beautiful landscape and the love of those who mean the most to them, they shared their vows and made their union official. Though for anyone that knows them, that was merely a formality – they’ve been inseparable for some time.
FIRST DANCE MEGA MIX
This is one of the ways I can tell that I’m going to love working with a couple – they plan a surprise choreographed dance for their first dance, and don’t tell anyone at all. They only told me a couple minutes before hand, just so I knew where to be to shoot it. Little known fact – I was known to tear up the rug back in my day, though I’ve been forced to retire my sweet moves due to uncoolness. Annette and Patrick’s dance routine was impressive – think Jimmy Fallon and Will Smith breaking down the history of dance – it was that good.
THE BEST MOMENT OF MY LOVE
Annette called it THE best moment of her love – having her soon to be husband see her wearing her dress for the first time during their first look. It wasn’t just that he saw her that made it so special. Not often (enough) do I see a groom display his emotions so freely, but Patrick’s reaction was one for the ages. Full on man tears, uncontrollable joy. And it was beautiful. She said she let go of her nervousness in the moments leading up to the reveal, instead replacing it with excitement to see this man, her man. On a day when time rushes by too quickly, this one moment stood still. And it’s a moment she won’t soon forget.
