Canmore Wedding Photographer :: Terri & Darryl
The sun was rising beautifully as my team drove into Canmore Aug 25, 2013. We met Terri and Darryl separately to start the day. Both nurses, Terri and Darryl were calm, cool, and collected while getting ready with their bridal party members. The excitement of the day was built slowly as we inched closer toward the reveal.
For the reveal, Terri met Darryl in the field by the abandoned coal mine entrance. They were so excited to see each other for the first time, and we couldn’t resist the urge to play with the moment a little. We had Terri edge slowly toward her groom, and she was happy to play with us as we had her cover Darryl’s eyes, and hug him, all while he couldn’t see more than her forearms. When we finally let him turn around, they shared a few moments to themselves, and only we were there to witness it. They embraced for quite some time and you could tell they were really caught in the magical moment.
We spent some time getting the formal shots out of the way so that they could go straight from their ceremony into visiting and partying with their guests. Right before the ceremony on the lawn at the Canmore Nordic Centre, the clouds rolled in and it looked for a minute like it might rain, but then the clouds opened back up and they were showered in the most beautiful sunlight at the altar.
The guests were ready to party, and after a few great speeches from family, and an entertaining round of the newlywed game, Terri and Darryl took to the dance floor to start the party off.
It. Was. Perfect.
