Calgary East Village Wedding | Lopez & Grace | Calgary Wedding Photographer
I have been so excited to blog this stunning wedding that I got to be a part of on July 28th, 2017! It was such an amazing wedding day so full of tradition, beautiful customs, a ton of love and so, so much fun! Lopez & Grace’s wedding day had touches of both their cultures that blended to make their day unique. The Chinese tradition of the groom paying the bridesmaids to see the bride before the ceremony to the first dance Dollar Dance which is a traditions from the grooms side of the family. I love how they both included traditional aspects but also made their wedding their own. Grace also had four dresses that she wore over the course of the day and each one was more stunning then the next.
Their stunning wedding ceremony was at their home, The Church of Immanuel, and her Uncle had the unbelievable honour of marring them. Such a special moment. Then it was off to Calgary’s East Village to the Simmon’s Building and St. Particks Island for weddings photos. I love the mix or urban and natural locations down there so they got to have a good mix of both. Their wedding party was so full of amazing friends and family that their whole bridal party session had all of us laughing and having such a good time. Their wedding day was also so crazy hot! Calgary is having a crazy hot summer so heading down underneath the George C. King Bridge made for some shade but also some interesting photos.
The Calgary Coast Plaza Hotel was the location for their amazing tiffany blue themed reception. Each table had a different famous Disney couple instead of a table number. How cute is that? The was no shortage of love and pure happiness on their wedding day, and it was so perfectly them! It was such an honour to be apart of their wedding day. Thank you Lopez & Grace for choosing us to document your love story! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!
