Chris & Lina | Grande Prairie Wedding Photographer | Kayla Lynn Photography

I first met Lina as a makeup artist at one of my couple’s wedding, a couple years ago. I remember how friendly Lina was, and how comfortable she made all the bridesmaids feel as she did their wedding makeup. Fast forward two years later, I would have never thought I would be capturing Chris’ and Lina’s big day!! Still to this day, Lina has the same friendly personality that makes you want to hang around all the time, Chris included! These two truly enjoyed their day to the fullest. I could see their excitement through their bright, beautiful smiles throughout the whole day, and we loved capturing it! 

We would photograph their day over and over again any day, if we could!  To start the day, Chris and Lina both gifted each other a vow book with sweet words written inside, as well as a few gifts. As Lina read her note from Chris, her face lit up with joy. She then carefully opened up a small white box. Inside laid the the most beautiful, delicate necklace, with a special engravement on the inside of the box that read, ‘Best Friend, True Love’. She then carefully placed the necklace around her neck, about to marry the man of her dreams! That morning as Chris opened his box full of goodies from Lina, he held the vow book and began to read it. His face lit up, full of joy, as well! Not too long after, Chris shared the warmest hug with his mother. It was the little moments like these we felt so blessed to witness and document through our cameras!

The best part was seeing these two get married. Chris’ and Lina’s daughters were the flower girls, and I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to include them in the wedding! It was so cute seeing them as down the aisle!

Last but not least, there were so many incredible vendors that made their day absolutely breathtaking! Their wedding reception was held at the Pomeroy Hotel & Conference Center, and it was beautifully decorated by talented wedding planner, Rhonda with Changing Dreams to Reality! The design was simple and elegant, yet beautiful! There were elegant florals on each table, gold chiavari chairs placed at the head table and the most DELICIOUS sweets made by Chris’ aunt! I even snagged a few of her soft gingersnap cookies for my drive home, they were amazing!! I wish I could make cookies as delicious as her’s! Victoria with Victoria Brandsma Hair did Lina’s stylish updo, which looked as beautiful at the end of the day!

Chris and Lina, we feel honored getting to spend this very special day, with you two!! You are the reason why we love what we do, getting to photograph couples madly in love and so full of life! Enjoy some of our favorites from your big day!
