Susan & Dobby had their wedding here in Calgary in September. I still remember they first time when they walked into my house for their wedding photography consultation. I remember thinking, wow, they look so young… and then it made me feel old. In fact Dobby is good friends with my cousin, who was one of his groomsmen. These 2 are one of those couples when you meet, you just know that they totally belong together.
We started off this day with quite a lot of laughs. When Dobby and his boys showed up to Susan’s house, they were forced to do things by the girls that could only be described as mean, but in a good way. First off they had to wear some depends diapers, which of course made them look absolutely silly. And then they were given a giant candy ring and were made to dance to Beyonce’s, “put a ring on it”. After that, they had to eat mystery ice cubes. I can not describe how they tasted but the photos are worth a million words.
They had the traditional Chinese tea ceremony at both homes. The wedding ceremony was held at the Wedding Pavillion just off of 16th Ave in northwest Calgary. It was there we did Susan’s getting ready photos in the bridal suite. After the ceremony, we took photos inside the Pavillion. We took advantage of every corner of the pavillion before heading out to Bowness to photograph their wedding party.
Susan and Dobby also have a dog that they dearly love. We all headed out together to pick up their dog at the dog sitter because they wanted a few photos of them with their dog. Their dog was extremely happy to see them!
The wedding reception was held at the Regency Palace in Calgary’s Chinatown. The rest of the night was quite the party with all their friends celebrating the first wedding of their young group.
Congrats Susan & Dobby! You guys are a great example to your friends and everybody around you. You both express love and respect for each other without holding anything back. You both will be a true inspiration for all. Thank you for trusting Ryan and I with your big day. See you at the Dome. ;)
