Yellowhead Brewery Edmonton Wedding
The Timms Centre for the Arts wedding ceremony and Yellowhead Brewery reception of Lauren and Brett in Edmonton, Alberta was a true celebration of a love story years in the making.
When a couple embeds meaning in their milestone day—perhaps reflecting the places they are from, honouring their family and friends who have supported their relationship, or choosing details that reflect who they are as a couple—my heart just soars. This is what life is about!
Amidst the day-to-day, we have opportunities, like wedding days (or graduations, or holidays, or the early weeks after a baby is born) to pause and make meaning of this thing we call life. And, of course, hopefully have those meaningful days captured to look back on for years to come.
Lauren and Brett’s very Edmonton wedding did just that. Every detail made for memories to last a lifetime, to look back on and see that accumulation of the years that brought them to that point. For instance, Lauren and Brett’s love story was years in the making because when they were just teeny toddlers, their dads played in a band together. You better believe that, fast-forward a few decades, their dads got up on the Yellowhead Brewery’s stage to join the live band and played their hearts out! From Zwick’s Pretzels and Moonshine Doughnuts, to invites designed by local artist Jason Blower—this wedding reflected Edmonton, Lauren and Brett, and the big love that surrounds them.
They could not have selected a more perfect venue to celebrate either. The Yellowhead Brewery, in the heart of downtown, is intimate, atmospheric, and makes for a gorgeous backdrop.
Lauren and Brett asked their guests to unplug, which was just another way to honour the day: by being absolutely present. And of course, when all the people you love are in one room, it’s easy to do. For me, this also allowed me to capture everyone in the room engaged with one another. It allowed me to truly assume to role of documenting the day—and to me, that is such an honour because, well, I just LOVE, love!
