On a warm evening in July, it was such a treat to document Linda and Jerry’s silver anniversary.  The day was a celebration of family and friends and it was perfectly evident that these two are very loved.  The day began with a vow renewal at the site of their original wedding ceremony, St. Stephen Ukrainian Catholic Church.

Then it was off to The Fairmont Palliser for great food and fun.  It’s always a pleasure to photograph celebrations in the Alberta Ballroom at The Fairmont Palliser.  With hand-painted murals and hues of blue and gold, it’s a warm and elegant location for a wedding.

Linda and Jerry celebrated their Ukrainian heritage by inviting the Suzirya Ukrainian Dance Theatre to wow their guests.  What a treat to photograph these dancers…it really was a highlight for me!

In return, their guests were equally entertaining.  This group performed a rousing rendition of “The Demchuk Bunch”.
