karissa + kris sneak peek- calgary wedding photographer

On Saturday we celebrated with Karissa and Kris and their friends and family as they were married in a beautiful ceremony at the zoo. Karissa and Kris are madly and passionately in love with one another and it was evident all day- they have fun together and laugh a lot. They also have an incredible group of friends- many of whom they have known for many years- and family and the entire day was a blast.
Karissa and her girls had their natural beauty enhanced by the hair artistry of Chantal Foster (chantallee1@gmail.com) and the make-up of Nicole Wilk (nicolewilk.is@gmail.com). The ceremony took place in the Safari Lodge which had lots of bright light coming in through the big, beautiful windows. The ceremony came to its conclusion with the wedding party sharing a jumping high five and we were off to Stephen Avenue Mall to create some images. Karissa and Kris were awesome and the images, to me, completely reflect their love for one another.
I want to take a minute in the midst of this to commend the wedding part for how well they cared for Karissa and Kris all day. Karissa’s sister Elle deserves particular praise in her role as the maid-of-honour. She was an incredible help throughout the planning phase and all through the big day. She filled her role perfectly.
We arrived at the reception, which also took place in the Safari Lodge, and the transformation was amazing. The tremendous ceilings didn’t take away from the intimacy that was created by the speeches, the moments and the details. The meal provided by the zoo was incredible as always and the cake, created by Frosted Memories, was incredible!
The dancing was incredibly lively because of the music provided by Revolution DJ Services. They are amazing!
Karissa and Kris are an amazing couple and we consider it a privilege that we were able to be part of their wonderful wedding day…
