This was as our second wedding on July Long Weekend, this time in Calgary with the ceremony at St Albert the Great Church and a beautiful reception at Pinebrook Golf Course. When I asked Erin and Matt if they had any preference in terms of style or if they particularly liked any of our other videos at the pre-wedding meeting the response was “All of them”. Well…no pressure then!
Seeing as this was our Feature Package we had three people on hand for the day…Ewen and Steve as the two main videographers and Deanna on the third camera at the ceremony before she took off to work on their Same Day Edit. Erin had one of the most chill bride preps I’ve ever seen…and everyone was ready about 15 minutes early. That never happens. Mira Pucchi were definitely on top of things with the hair and make-up!
Despite threatening rain the weather held and eventually turned out really beautiful for the photo session and then reception at Pinebrook (highly recommended if you’re having a Calgary wedding but want something with a bit of an outdoor/mountainy feel). Christy Swanberg was fantastic to work with and I’m looking forward to seeing some of her shots from the photoshoot. Particularly the sunset one she took off in the golf cart for with Erin and Matt along with Steve hanging off the back!
I can’t wait to put the full video together for Erin and Matt..I got some great shots of golden hour cocktails and ice cream outside the reception…and there were some great speeches to include as well. Stay tuned for this one!
The wedding planner was Sonia from Enriched Events in Calgary…and she did a great job. She was particular helpful in making sure we were all sorted at the reception and for playing the Same Day Edit. In fact the staff at Pinebrook were also very helpful with that which is sometimes rare at a reception.
