It’s hard to believe that over a year has come and gone in the blink of an eye. I’ll never forget the first time I met Kaitlyn and Brodey at a South Edmonton Starbucks because I felt like I had known them both for years. I instantly knew that this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Kaitlyn and Brodey have a love story for the books and it was woven through their incredible wedding day. Kaitlyn even told me ” if you point to something at the wedding I will tell you exactly why it’s there, because it has a meaning.” Every piece of their day had such beautiful sentiment – from their family blessings to friends who came from afar.
We started their day at the Staybridge Inn and Suites to capture these two putting their final touches on before becoming husband and wife. I always like to say that the morning-of is beautiful, organized chaos, and yesterday was no exception! We sprung from room to room catching all of the thing as they unfolded. There were gifts exchanged, tears shed, and some very special moments including a first look between Kaitlyn and her Dad. I’ll leave it at that because I am bound to start crying again – it was SO special!
Kaitlyn put ALL of the good weather vibes out into the universe and somehow managed to discourage rain for the entire day. I’m serious – this whole week called for showers throughout their entire day and we did not see a drop until around 4:00. And it was just that – A DROP! Of course, we had a little sprinkle for our “sunset” photos,” but we powered right on through!
They went forward with their outdoor ceremony at Barbecue Acres on the outskirts of West Edmonton and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Kaitlyn and Brodey had a very special moment on either side of their ceremony doors before walking down the aisle. I will never forget Kaitlyn’s genuine sigh of relief when Brodey grabbed her hand. You could literally see how much he feels like home to her – it was adorable!
I could go on, and on, and on some more about every special touch from their wedding that was a long time coming, but I’ll leave it here.
Kaitlyn and Brodey – I am continuously blown away by your ability to read each other. It’s like you share the exact same wave length and literally know how to make each other feel their absolute best in any given moment. Your wedding day was beautiful, but nothing compares to the genuine love you two have for each other and your families.
Ryan and I are just over-the-moon excited for you both and can’t thank you enough for choosing us to share your special day!
