One of my favorite things about my job is when I have the honor of capturing the celebration for another past “Kayla Lynn” couples family! While I was photographing Kevin’s and Taylor’s wedding here in Grande Prairie, nearly two years ago, I saw Gerad and Kailey, so in love, dancing on the dance floor together. Little did I know, they would be contacting me, a year later to capture their big day!
I was blown away by the amount of detail Kailey and her family put into this very special day. Considering they had to plan their wedding a few times, due to covid, it all turned out so beautifully. They went from a big wedding venue, to hosting their intimate wedding in Kailey’s parent’s backyard, full of greenery, flowers and gold chiavari chairs. As you scroll through the images, you’ll instantly see the amount of love and hours of work that went into their very special day!
My heart was warmed by the overwhelming amount of love Gerad’s and Kailey’s family and friends have for them. Every click of the camera shutter was capturing a special moment, laughter or tears of joy as they were surrounded by some of their closest family and friends. There were family members, especially their moms, helping make the most delicious meals and making sure their day run smoothly. Gerad’s dad video recorded their entire day. As they walked down the aisle, there was an iPad ready, full of family members who couldn’t make it, congratulating the newlyweds! That itself proves, no matter the distance, Kailey and Gerad are so incredibly loved. It was inspiring to see their families and closest friends join together on their very special day, no matter the distance!
If you asked me what was my favorite part of Gerad’s and Kailey’s wedding day, I would tell you I loved it all. The daddy-daughter first look, the bride and groom first look, their ceremony and reception speeches had many of the guests in tears.
Gerad and Kailey, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for having me capture your very special day. It was a privilege being at your side on the most important day of your lives. I couldn’t have imagined being anywhere else. You two are going to make such amazing parents to your son, and I can’t wait for the day when you are holding this sweet baby boy in your arms. For now, enjoy my many favorites from your big day!
