I had the privilege of photographing Shelley and Don’s wedding yesterday and being a part of this very special day.
The venue for their event was Terrace 55 in Assiniboine Park. The setting was amazing. Everything was elegant and very well planned. I loved the dream catchers that adorned the ceiling of Terrace 55. Each dream catcher was hand crafted and was different. You can see the dream catchers in a couple of images in this gallery. The light in this restaurant is a dream for photographers. Most wedding venues are dark with no window light and this spot is the exact opposite.
I can’t say enough about this couple. Don is a stand up comedian http://www.donburnstick.com/ and really is a fun and funny guy. Don can be serious but he also kept us laughing during the photo session. Make sure you have a look at the one where Shelley is in the foreground and Don is the background in the park. Shelley and I hit it off right from the start and I hope we can continue to keep in touch. There’s a lot more to this lovely woman than you see on the surface and I have enjoyed getting to know her. The love between these 2 people is apparent when you see them together.
I wish you both many blessings.
Here is a short slide show and a gallery of images from the day. The images in both are the same.
