Matteo & Brianne | Grande Prairie Wedding | Kayla Lynn Photography

Matteo and Brianne’s wedding day was filled with such love, joy, and beauty. They had a beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Joseph’s, which is easily one of my favourite churches to photograph in because it is so beautifully bright and filled with natural light! Surrounded by their friends and family, it was easy to tell how loved these two are and how supported they are as they officially embraced this new chapter of their lives! 

Having a wedding at the end of May as all the new, baby leaves are poking out is such a lovely time of year, but it can make for some unpredictability as you try to gauge which trees will turn green first! That is exactly what happened with our original photo location, Jubilee Park, which did not end up turning green in time! I was so thankful that Matteo and Brianne were so flexible and totally on board to switch their location to somewhere I knew would make their photos so much better. Just a couple days before their wedding I found the perfect spot for them, and I couldn’t believe how amazing the light was!! It was just a dream! Everything came together so perfectly and when we had the honour of situating Matteo under those beautiful trees and bringing his bride to him for their first look, he wasn’t the only one who couldn’t stop smiling!!  

Speaking of greenery, Grower Direct did such an amazing job with the wedding florals! Right from the first time we met, Brianne expressed how much flowers mattered to her and I was absolutely blown away by how well Grower Direct brought that dream to reality. The creams and light blues were such perfect colours for a light and airy photographer such as myself, and the decorated arch was truly a wonder to behold! 

Since Matteo and Brianne’s ceremony was a traditional Catholic one, they shared their own written vows at the beginning of the reception, which was so meaningful. Their reception took place at the Pomeroy with such beautiful decor, and a huge highlight for me was seeing their amazing wedding cake by Pink Oven! Such a special touch. They had such great guests and the dance floor was a huge hit (especially thanks to Flip Entertainment!), so much so that even Grandma and Grandpa could be found out there busting a move!!

Matteo and Brianne, it was such a joy getting to photograph your amazing day!! I loved getting to work with you both. You two are such a great fit for each other and I’m sure this is only the beginning of many wonderful memories you will create as a couple! All the best to you both as you embark on this amazing new journey together!!
