I am excited to share this classic wedding at the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton on Yasmin & James one year anniversary. With beautiful tones of Purple, Yasmin’s favourite colour which also happens to be the colour of royalty they celebrated the day with their friends and family with an epic dance party to end the night. I was lucky enough to get to photograph their proposal earlier in the year, James had it all planned out with penguins at West Edmonton mall and it was so cute when the two penguins waddled out with a sign asking for Yasmin’s hand in marriage. We also photographed their engagement photos in Downtown edmonton and at the Legislature building. It was pretty special getting to capture all of this for them.
Their day went a little like this… James had a professional shave at Mickey’s barbershop off Whyte Ave while Yasmin and the girls got ready at her childhood home and had makeup and hair done by Sen Studios. The ceremony was held at Strathcona Baptist Church just off of Whyte ave. For photos in between we headed to the University of Alberta campus and wandered around to some of my favourite spots to shoot at in the city and I think they brought even more class to this beautiful wedding day. They handmade their guest favours with their bridal party and they were coasters with maps of Cairo and Chicago – the places that Yasmin & James were born. They had guests travel from Chicago, Texas, South Carolina, California, Mississippi, Ottawa, Montreal, Calgary, and even Mexico!Their flowers were stunning and done by Flowers by Merle, the cake delicious and beautiful was made by Triple L Cakes and of course the other vendors Talent Productions for DJ, A love Story for Video and Legends Limousine helped make the day run smoothly.
When I asked what they love and appreciate the most about each other James said it was a toss up between her eyes and nurturing steadfast spirit. Yasmin’s response was that he is a real man who takes care of us. He is responsible, trustworthy and kind. And of course he brings it on the dance floor with his sexy moves.
Happy anniversary you two! I hope the first year was full of joy and growth.
