Shanley & Tam got married back in July and had their wedding at the Marriott River Cree Hotel and Casino, just outside Edmonton. They have finally seen their wedding photos and now we can share it everyone. The wedding started out with the tradition Chinese tea ceremony at both Shanley and Tam’s respective parents’ homes, as they both donned the traditional Chinese wedding clothing. After that we headed to St. Charles Catholic church, located at the edge of north Edmonton, for the wedding ceremony. The church was huge and wide open. The ceremony was nice and before you knew it, it was time to sign the documents. When the ceremony was completed, we headed to an industrial area near the church to do their creative portraits. We found a very cool area and also had a business owner there graciously offered us the use of his warehouse. We had no problems with that and took that offer immediately. On this day we got to work with our good friends Ryan & Luke from Imago Weddings again, so we had to share S&T to make sure we both got what we needed.
When the shoot was all done, we had the reception to look forward to. We all had a feeling these guys were going to throw a big party! And they sure did. When we walked into the room, it was beautifully filled with Tiffany blue every where. The room was the result of the hard work of Renee Chan and her crew from Get Wed. They did a fantastic job. The reception opened with a high energy Chinese Lion Dance. That got the party started! The Calgary Photo Booth, Hoot Booth, made it’s first official appearance and it was a huge hit all night with people waiting in line to use it. The photos from the Hoot Booth gallery says it all! The speeches were filled with laughter, lots of crying and excellent toasts! After the speeches, Shanley sang a beautiful Chinese song to her father that tugged many heart strings. The rest of the night was an awesome celebration with friends and family.
Ryan and I are so honored to be part of your amazing union. Thanks for having us at your wedding and giving us the important job of capturing it all for you guys. Shanley you were absolutely gorgeous and so easy to photograph. Tam, you are just a stud and you know it! I want to be there to help break your bad luck on the Bow River, so don’t forget, we have to get out soon! Congratulations again S&T!
