Britni and Eric’s wedding at the Calgary Glencoe Club was our first wedding of the year. Ryan and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple and wedding to start the year off with. Britni and Eric are huge dog lovers, Eric is a dog trainer, so it was fitting that they would have their wedding ceremony at an off leash park. They chose Tom Campbell’s Hill Natural Park that also provided a great view of downtown Calgary. Of course the day started off with the prep for both bride and groom. We met up with Eric at one of his groomsmen’s condo near Stampede Park. There we found the boy buzzing with excitement for the day and soon shooters of tequila were lined up to get themselves going. When we were done there we met up with Britni and her girls at her parent’s house in Harvest Hills. Of course their place was a buzz with excitement as well but no shooters were found here. Britni looked absolutely gorgeous when she got into her wedding dress. She looked stunning and we couldn’t wait to photograph her.
When we got to Tom Campbell’s Hill, we found ourselves riding on a golf cart to the ceremony location, which was a little further in from the road. Britni arrived in an SUV limo in grand fashion and soon the ceremony would begin. We stayed at the park to do some of our photos of them and wedding party before heading downtown to shoot some more. None of us will ever forget how a downpour of rain crossed the street and then dumped on us. That was one of the craziest weather phenomenons I have ever experienced. It went from no rain to a full on downpour! And course there’s the story with the security guards telling us we can not take pictures on a public sidewalk. We easily won that argument.
Britni and Eric surprised their guests with a Chinese Lion Dance at the reception which was held at the Glencoe Club. The rest of the night was quite the party and we had a great time documenting it all. Sonia Ulmer and her team from Enriched Events did a spectacular job making sure the day went smoothly.
Congrats to Britni and Eric. Your wedding was fabulous!! Thanks for having Ryan and I be a part of it. You both make a great looking couple and I am sure your future human kiddies will be just as good looking!
