The love story of the best friends falling in love with one another is here. Laura and Derek started out "friends" in college but secretly the entire world knew they'd end up together. It just took these two a little longer to figure it out. Once the two started dating, they never looked back and it's been pure magic.
Laura & Derek’s stunning wedding was held at the Mahogany Beach Club here in Calgary, Alberta. Laura’s vision of soft pinks, romantic styling and a summer wedding came to life.
I started my day out with the ladies at a near by hotel where Tuff & Tulle did the styling of the brides and bridesmaid. From there we headed to the ceremony, as it was important to the couple that they saw one another for the first time in the aisle. These two are darling, their ceremony was a direct reflection of their personalities mixed in one. The vows they both wrote so closely aligned with one another, however my favorite part was the simple fact that Laura called Derek out with a subtle “the first time you told me you loved me was on the C-train”, which is definitely not how Derek recalls the romantic story. It caused for a few laughs, and the cutest of glances at one another as they recalled how their love began.
After the ceremony we went to Bankview in Fish Creek for their wedding party images. We were short for time, however with an extremely high-spirited small wedding party we were thankfully able to beat the rain by a mere minute.
This wedding will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s not just because the couples interactions and subtle loving sass to one another, it’s more simply because their family held such a sacred and fun space for these two to celebrate the start of a life together.
