It was like something out of a movie. In fact, I’m sure it’s the storyline to several romantic comedies. Girl travels to best friend’s cabin for a summer weekend. Girl and friends head to local bar for a fun night. Guy spies Girl across the crowded room. Girl spies Guy across the crowded room. Flirtations from a distance ensue. Best Friend gets fed up, pulls Girl and Guy together and implores them to dance. And dance they did. If this was indeed a romantic comedy, there would be more hilarious adventures, perhaps a hiccup or two, but inevitably, our two heroes end up together and live happily ever after. Which is exactly what happened in the case of Lauren and Adam. A filmmakers dream, rather, a photographer’s dream. I shoot at Silvertip and in Canmore a lot and was determined this season to seek out some new fun spots for the creatives. I was especially excited when Lauren and Adam loved my new choices too- albeit for the burrs we encountered at one site- oi!!! Fun fact, burrs really do their job well. And that one job is sticking to things. ugh. Anyways, I loved the mix of romance and laughter and well, beer. Beer is always a good choice and a great way to end a photography session. The ceremony was held at the gazebo site on the Silvertip grounds and wonderfully officiated by Rick Kunelius. Any officiant that gets a couple and their audience laughing is AWESOME in my books. Something that seems to be repeating itself is this beautiful little moment where the dad looks at his daughter as he’s walking her up the aisle. It’s as if he’s taking a moment and jetting back 20something years to the first time he held her as a baby. It must be a surreal moment. It’s a moment that I love seeing again and again. The reception was held in the grand pavilion framed by the beautiful stone fireplace and curated by the lovely Callandra of Postcard Weddings. Speeches (oh the speeches!) and dancing capped off a really, really wonderful day. Oh and doughnuts. Doughnuts were eaten. No. They were devoured. Doughnuts were a very, very good idea. Congrats to Lauren and Adam! Enjoy!
