Barbara and Jeff did not have a typical wedding timeline! It involved getting married in Calgary in a full Orthodox ceremony, and then travelling out to Banff for their reception at the Banff Springs Hotel. Always fun to change the script a little bit!

We started with some getting ready shots in Calgary.

I absolutely loved the soft light coming into the room while Barbara was getting tied into her dress. I also love that it was all-hands on deck!

Arriving at the church. As I mentioned, it was an Orthodox ceremony, which means that neither Duane or I really knew what was going on. I really like flying by the seat of my pants like that every once in a while though – so many interesting things to shoot! They may be getting a few extra ceremony photos in their gallery though! 🙂

Putting on the rings. The priest’s face makes me laugh every time I see the photo.

This girl was hilarious. I think she might have found the ceremony a little long. 🙂

And then it was reception time! They greeted their guests from the Juliet balcony overlooking Mt. Stephen hall.
