Toasting with glasses of bubbly and a few tears of happiness, Tanya remembered to take in the moment. To soak in the fact that her wedding day was upon her, in spite of the bustle of preparations for such an event. She got ready with her mom, her sister, and a dear friend upstairs at The Ranche, the room echoing of the bride’s enthusiasm and sweet spirit…all that was missing was some music, so I supplied my iPhone and soon the likes of John Legend, Ray LaMontagne, and Ben Harper were there as well.
The night before there had been a hint of snow, but the sun shone brightly (and just warm enough) in Calgary last Friday as Tanya and Chris became husband and wife in an outdoor ceremony before fifteen of their family members. They chose the very place where Chris proposed, The Ranche, and it was perfect.
Their wedding stationery was created by the graphic designer groom, Chris himself, and I loved all the detail…can you spot the bride & groom on the porch?
I love these first few moments between Tanya & Chris as husband and wife…
I asked Chris where exactly it was that he proposed, and it happened to be here, where the light was oh so lovely…I had to thank him ;)
To Chris and Tanya, thank you for inviting us to document the start of your marriage! It was such a delight and an honor to be there with your family to celebrate you two. Now wherever your honeymoon takes you this week…Amsterdam, Paris perhaps…I hope it’s nothing short of amazing.
