Nicole + Bill Sneak Peek. Calgary Wedding Photographer.

A little over a week ago Jaime and I were privileged to be part of the wedding celebration of our new friends Nicole and Bill. We had been really looking forward to this wedding because of how much fun we had with Nicole and Bill at their engagement session. Nicole has an incredibly beautiful smile- the kind that makes everyone around her smile as well (Bill’s is good too!) and it is almost always on display because of how much fun she has with Bill. Sometimes we have such a good time with couples that it becomes difficult to take pictures because we are laughing along with them- this was certainly the case with Nicole and Bill and this definitely carried over to their wedding day.
The tone of the wedding was set for us almost right away with many very emotional moments happening as Nicole and her girls got ready. When Nicole’s dad saw her for the first time in her dress it was an incredibly touching moment. Nicole and Bill are both the kind of people that a lot of people care for. Their lives are the kind that are infused with friends and family and it is easy to see why when you spend any time with them- they are a wonderful couple. The girls all looked amazing thanks to the make-up and hair artistry of Diva Salon.
The ceremony at St. Peter’s Church was beautiful and had many funny moments that further showed Nicole and Bill’s character and then we headed off to Baker Park and Bowness Park for some portraits. The wedding party was a lot of fun- they were helping Bill climb a tree one moment and then pretending to sleep in the limo the next- it made for a really fun time, a relaxed couple and some amazing portraits!
The reception was held at the Croatian Centre which looked unbelievable thanks to the amazing Firefly Occasions. They do such a great job with decor and planning and helping their clients to be relaxed and have fun at their wedding! The flowers at the reception and the ceremony and those decorating the wedding party and family were done by the extremely talented Lyn of Flower Artistry. We love working with her and anyone who can really impress Jaime with flower design is truly talented indeed! The ceremony was inspired by Ukrainian culture and featured a live band- the Playboys from Edmonton- who were excellent and really kept the party going! The night also included a high-flying Ukrainian dance troupe- the Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Ensemble of Calgary- that performed a very acrobatic routine for Nicole, Bill and the rest of the guests.
Nicole and Bill, we had a blast at your wedding and now feel like we count the two of you as friends. We wish you both love, peace and grace in your lives together…
