Navi being from Winnipeg and Jessica from Edmonton this wedding was spread out between the two cities. The Sangeet portion was in Edmonton and the rest of the wedding was in Winnipeg at Sikh Society Gurdwara and Fairmont hotel. If you love colour like I do then these photos won’t disappoint. The party was rocking from the sangeet all the way to the reception as you’ll see in part two.
There was roughly 2900 photographs delivered to this couple and lots of highlights so therefore two blog posts.
Navi and Jessica are a beautiful couple and such a sweet people. I got to spend a lot of time with them in Banff and on the way back to Edmonton after their photoshoot. Their families were equally as kind through out the whole event and I was always taken care of.
April in Winnipeg however wasn’t as kind to us just like the winter Winnipeg dealt with this past 2021/2022. There was water everywhere, streets were damaged beyond belief and it was difficult finding a location where we could photograph. We ended up at the Monastery in St Norbert that was on the way to Jessica’s place for her Doli. After a few failed attempts at popular photo spots being closed or under construction we were happy to finally start shooting. Even thou we couldn’t go inside the ruins because of snow, water and ice, we were still able to shoot around the building.
Weddings to me are about the couple and their love. However, I believe its more then that. It’s also about relationships, two families coming together and all those moments between everyone. The love and history between the people involved runs so deep that during weddings emotions are super high. With that said, emotional moments are my favourite photographs from weddings because I know how priceless they are.
This wedding definitely has soul, it has love and all those beautiful moments that make weddings absolutely beautiful.
I hope you enjoy these highlights from this beautiful Edmonton/Winnipeg wedding and if you’re finished you can head on over to part 2.
