Ten days before Emma and Keith's wedding I was visiting them at their acreage south of Okotoks to plan the final details for their wedding photography. I could feel their stress as they had planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony followed by a tent reception...only it was the middle of September and the ground was covered in snow. Luckily, in southern Alberta, winter is never here to stay and on their wedding day you could have mistaken it for the middle of July. Emma and Keith's wedding was an intimate affair with those closest to them. It was really important for them to include their fur family in the celebration: Luna the Black Lab Flower dog, Mugsy the Jack Russel Ringbearer as well as their two horses. Emma and Keith spent the months leading up to their wedding landscaping, renovating and beautifying their property to pull the entire setting together. Emma had some amazing help in her Matron of Honour. It was amazing to watch her do everyone's hair (including her own) as well as decorate the beautiful wedding cake. All of the details of their wedding day were incredibly thoughtful but I think the sign just outside the reception tent sums up Emma & Keith's wedding perfectly: Come as you are, Stay as long as you want (9pm) We're all family here, so not seating plan.
