Edmonton Wedding Planner: Ashley + Sean

Ashley and Sean’s wedding was the perfect combination of tradition and classic elegance meets modern design. They shared a first look at Fairmont Hotel Macdonald where they took photos in the beautiful gardens before heading to St. Josaphat’s Cathedral for a traditional Ukrainian Catholic ceremony. The newlyweds hosted a modern reception at Art Gallery of Alberta, which we dressed up in black and white with touches of champagne and rose gold.

Inspiration to Reality: Sandy + Steve

Sandy + Steve wanted their winter wedding to be dramatic, romantic, elegant and bold. We let the stunning glass ceilings at The Enjoy Centre serve as inspiration for the design, allowing the deep blue night sky to shine through and enhancing it with additional blue lighting around the perimeter of the space. White and gold textured lighting was used to breakup the blue, mimicking twinkling stars. Metallic elements were carried throughout the design to ensure the sparkle of winter was present, while rich tones of cranberry and red florals brought vibrancy and life to the tables. The inspiration:

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Lindsay + Ben

Lindsay + Ben are such a sweet couple. Their October wedding day was filled with big, warm smiles from all their family and friends. I just love the look on Ben’s face as he sees Lindsay walk down the aisle at St. Albert Catholic Parish!

Their timeless ivory and gold reception at Matrix Hotel featured a killer candy bar and amazing entertainment – duelling pianists Jesse Peters and Tiff Hall kept guests on the dance floor all night!

Enjoy a glimpse into their love story captured by Nicole Ashley Photography.

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Katrina + David

Katrina + David were married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony last summer at Edmonton’s Royal Glenora Club. The sun was shining, the skies were blue – you’d never guess there was a torrential downpour just one hour before the ceremony was scheduled to begin! Luckily with some great teamwork we swapped out the chair cushions just in time to seat guests and send Katrina down the aisle looking absolutely angelic.

Just For You Photography was on hand to capture all the beautiful moments of the day, including the couple’s “first look” at The Fairmont Hotel Macdonald. After the wedding Katrina + David enjoyed an amazing honeymoon in Italy!

Edmonton Wedding Planner: Beena + Craig

Avenue Edmonton Wedding

Beena + Craig’s wedding last summer was a fusion of two diverse, vibrant cultures: East Indian and Guyanese. Living apart to pursue their careers, they opted for a longer engagement in order to pace out the wedding planning decisions. We made the most of our emails, calls and whirlwind planning weekends to arrange their festive 400-guest celebration at All Saints Anglican Cathedral and Meridian Banquets.

You can read all about this gorgeous wedding in Avenue Edmonton Magazine’s January 2014 issue. JDS Photography did a fabulous job (as usual) capturing the special moments throughout the day – enjoy a sampling of images below!

In the Limelight: Carey Nash Photography

Carey Nash is an über-talented photographer based in Edmonton, but his work takes him all over the world photographing weddings in amazing destinations – from Los Cabos to Scotland. We’ve had the honour of working with Carey on numerous weddings and we’re excited to share more about his background in today’s In the Limelight feature. At the bottom of the post we’ve included some of Carey’s stunning images from our clients’ weddings. Enjoy!

 +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +  +

Tell us about yourself!

Carey Nash

I was raised in a northern community and found myself drawn to camping, hiking and exploring at an early age. After high school I started out on my first international backpack trip and before I knew it, nearly ten years had passed, and I had traveled around our globe many times. During my years abroad I had the good fortune to meet some great people…two of which, a young Danish photographer and a Parisian artist, set me on my path to photography. I had no formal education in photography but I saw the world quite differently than many others I knew.

My greatest success was meeting my wife Colleen, who comes from a completely different background.  She is well educated and encouraged my passion and has taught me how to pursue my dreams with hard work.  In our nine years together she has given me three amazing little backpackers. I’m goofy, I laugh a lot and I don’t take life too seriously. And when I take photos I don’t just want them to be pretty, I want them to be pretty freaking awesome.

Why did you become a photographer?

At first it was just to document my travels and to have some memories of the amazing far off countries I visited. It wasn’t until I was settling into a permanent life back here in Canada that I started to find people were interested in my images, buying my artwork, and telling me that my pictures told a story and made them want to visit a place they probably never thought they would have.  Since I love to share my experiences with others and love taking pictures, this worked out! Also, I’m a very nostalgic person and there isn’t a photo I have taken that I can’t close my eyes and bring myself back to that moment in time. Photos have that incredible power, which is so rewarding to me. I love being able to resurrect memories for the people I photograph.

Who have been the biggest influences in your life (photographers or otherwise)?

My parents. They had me at a young age and left their remote hometown and followed an opportunity for a better life. Life wasn’t easy when we were young but they taught me to explore, be independent and take risks. For photography, Sebastiao Salgado. His early work is quite dramatic and I am drawn to his framing and powerful emotions.

How would you describe your photography style?

My work has continued to change and develop over the past 15 years. I’m not sure I can label it, but from my travel background I’m drawn to wide spaces and powerful and intense portraits. I lean towards the dramatic even though my personality is loose and light – perhaps that style of imagery is my outlet for my dramatic side?

Do you have a favourite wedding or wedding moment that you’ve photographed?

I’ve been fortunate to shoot in incredible places with fun brides and grooms which has lead to some pretty cool weddings and shots. I don’t think I could pick one favourite and I’m just happy that people trust me with them.   The new father in me has really changed the way I view weddings from when I had no children. Of my three kids I have two daughters, so every wedding reminds me that one day I hope to be lucky enough to walk these princesses down the aisle.

What are some wedding day photography tips that couples should keep in mind?

Each couple and the photographer have their own personality and style. Speaking on behalf of myself I want to remind couples that this day is about bringing family and friends together one time! No two weddings or emotions are ever the same so your day will be yours, and your images unique to your wedding.  So you might have images in mind from Pinterest or somewhere, but it’s likely impossible to replicate them, and they may look forced. Trust whoever you hire on your wedding day to capture the real moments that mattered to you that day and take time to enjoy your day and the people surrounding you.

Jasper Wedding Planner: Violeta + Barry

Violeta + Barry were married at The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge on a hot and sunny weekend last summer. Violeta’s energy and enthusiasm is off the charts, while Barry is the epitomy of calm, cool and collected. They balance one another perfectly, which made the planning process a lot of fun!

The couple decided to make a weekend out of their destination wedding celebration dress and included some additional events for guests to enjoy and get to know one another. The day before the wedding guests enjoyed a fun golf tournament at the Jasper Park Lodge Golf Course – the number one rated resort course in Canada. Following the tournament, the couple held an informal “meet and greet” barbecue to relax with their friends and family in the beautiful setting.

On the big day, the scene at Whistler’s Plateau was absolutely stunning. The combination of Lac Beauvert’s sparkling green water and the majestic Rockies made for the perfect, natural backdrop for the outdoor ceremony. After the happy couple exchanged vows, guests made their way to the Beauvert Room for the reception. The head table featured a showstopping tablescape which epitomized rustic elegance: lanterns, driftwood, candlelight and an abundance of lush florals and ferns.

Guests enjoyed a fabulous 5-star buffet dinner and midnight snack featuring fresh cut French fries, which were a huge hit. As many children were in attendance, Vio + Barry created a “kids’ zone” which included supervised games, activities and movies. The kids had plenty to keep them busy while their parents danced the night away!

Thanks to the brilliant photography of Kelly Redinger, Vio + Barry have some amazing images to help them relive their Jasper wedding weekend.
