Charlie & Shaylah were married at the beautiful Norland Historic Estate just outside of Lethbridge.  The elegant style of the wedding decor was perfectly paired with the beautiful grounds and style of the bridal party.  Shaylah had her makeup done by the talented Svitlana from BilanaBeauty and hair was done by Ashlee Fehr. She’s an instructor here in Lethbridge at Purely Inspired and we loved this classic look she put together for Shaylah.  Follow more of her work on instagram@ashleefehrlommer

Shaylah looked absolutely stunning as she finished off the final touches before the ceremony with her dress by ABC Bridal in Edmonton, Alberta, which was designed by Alfred Angelo . The beautiful flowers were made by Shaylah herself  and was the perfect addition to the style of her dress.

Shaylah made the choice to do a first look with her dad of her all dressed up before heading down to the ceremony.   This was an absolutely precious moment and we were so glad that time was made for her and her dad to take a few minutes and share this moment together.  When getting ready for the ceremony, often things are rushed, and making time with parents before the ceremony can be truly memorable.

Charlie and his crew got together before the ceremony for some good laughs, and met up with his parents for a few pictures as well. Time well spent while making some fun memories!

Everyone was ready, and the ceremony was about to start!  All eyes were on Shaylah as she was lead down the aisle by her dad with Charlie watching as his beautiful bride approached.  The emotion was high and the air was filled with love, support and tears from family and friends who came to witness these two join together as one.

After the ceremony we headed out for the formals. The guys looked pretty styling in their suits by Derks Formals and the bridesmaids look absolutely amazing in their gowns from Davids Bridal.  Charlie and Shaylah were blessed with the most beautiful September weather, fantastic bridal party,  and our time with them was nothing short of exceptional as we were able to capture some exquisite shots of the two of them.  The  warm Fall lighting had hit just at the right time.

Following the picture part of the afternoon, we headed into the ball room as they announced the bridal party.  Charlie & Shaylah had chosen to do their first dance just before the dinner started and was the perfect way to start the party party of the evening with food by LA Chefs Catering.  We loved the authenticity these two shared throughout the day, and loved capturing some of the special moments shared to look back on and remember.
