Sometimes in life more is more. As I have been blogging this wedding for days, struggling to post a reasonable amount of photos, I have decided to believe that in this case, for this two day wedding extravaganza, more can be more.

When Jenn and Mike emailed us about their wedding, I had just been looking up destinations for our next family holiday — set to take place at same time, and for the same destination — Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Serendipity.

Jenn and Mike so graciously accepted us, and our son, into their wedding and celebration; it not only made an impact on us, but it made a sincere impact on our son, as he spoke of one day having friends like the group surrounding Mike and Jenn (he has also decided to tryout for the school volleyball team, ha ha).

I first need to thank you both, your families and friends for welcoming us into this incredible celebration!!! Thank you for having us, and for having our son there without hesitation at all. What we learned during this wedding was that you both are so filled with love and joy, grace and kindness… I am so happy you get to have this journey together as soul mates forever and ever!!!!! Yay!

You will see two days of coverage. A tea ceremony, engagement photos, and the wedding day, enjoy!!

Also as a side note, can you seriously be friends with so many hilarious people, and great dancers… best. dance floor. ever.

We shot Kirsten and Braden’s wedding the day after valentine’s day at the beautiful Banff Springs Hotel. It was the perfect setting for a winter wedding in the mountains:)

Kirsten and Braden are both so down-to-earth and easy to be around!!! They have been together for years, which made the celebration that much more special. They also have a beautiful rhythm with each other that can only come from having history — and it was an honor to spend the day capturing this.

Everyone from the day was beyond gracious and giving, and we want to thank you so much!!!

Yay!
