Catie & Bryan’s Calgary backyard wedding was the first wedding we photographed which was affected by the flooding in June. They had first planned a reception at the Calgary Glencoe club, and due to the reception having no power they decided to have the ceremony and reception in Catie’s Parents’ backyard; the wedding was overlooking Elbow Park, one of Calgary’s most damaged neighbourhoods. Catie’s family had spent a full week working day and night to save what they could from her grandparents’ home. Drying photographs from the house, and waiting for their own power to return.
In the wake of such a difficult time, the whole family and neighbourhood came out to help make this backyard wedding happen. It was so touching to see all the love surrounding both Catie and Bryan. And to top it off this wedding not only had one of the best groups we have ever photographed, it was a beautiful day filled with all the things that truly matter — family, friends and love.
Thank you Catie, Bryan, and everyone for having us on this special day!!!!
