We had so much fun working with this Monica and Sam and their families on an absolutely BEAUTIFUL day in May. Alberta weather can be so unpredictable but a 28 degree day in Edmonton was not a bad way to start off wedding season!
Sam and Monica started off their wedding day with some games and the traditional tea ceremonies. The bridesmaids began by testing Sam’s knowledge of Monica and their relationship, and if he failed, he was punished. The punishment (Have you ever heard of a bitter melon ice cube?) definitely provided for some priceless facial expressions which are featured in this highlight video.
The couple then headed over to their breathtaking venue, the Oasis Centre, where they were led through a heartwarming ceremony. We were able to capture some magical footage with the entire bridal party at the photo shoot with Nicole Ashely Photography in the river valley where we found some cherry blossom trees in bloom. Back at the Oasis Centre for the reception, the celebration and the games continued. We even got to see a game that we have NEVER seen before at a wedding (and we have been to a few) where Monica and Sam learned how to “dance” from another married couple. If you would like to see two happily married couples shaking their tail feathers and dare I say, twerking, make sure you watch this video until the end.
Congratulations Monica and Sam! It was such a pleasure working with you as well as everyone involved. We hope that you enjoy your wedding video and wish you all the best!
