Amy and John had their heart set on a beautiful Spring Garden Wedding. They picked their wedding day based on when the Lougheed House was available because they had their heart set on ceremony in the formal gardens. Now as anyone who has lived in Calgary for a while knows, June is about the only time of year that we get rain. The day before Amy and John's wedding it was terrible, grey and rainy all day long, so plans were made to move the ceremony inside, much to the bride and groom's disappointment. But on Saturday morning, the clouds cleared and and a we had the most beautiful, sunny day in June. Amy & John decided to do a first look so we could take all their formal portraits before the ceremony. My favourite part of a first look is that it allows the couple to share a private moment when they see each other for the first time. This also allowed John and Amy to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests on the lawn at the Lougheed house.
Often weddings are a celebration of two families becoming one, but John and Amy have been a family for a long time. Their wedding really felt like a celebration of this!
