I have quite a treat for you today. Steph and Sean’s Cornerstone Theatre wedding in Canmore was beautiful in so many ways. Though they planned their wedding long distance, these two put a lot of care into the planning of their mountain celebration and as a result, the wedding details were thoughtful and cohesive.
Steph blended lavender tones, the texture of succulents and soft rustic touches beautifully. That kind of thing is candy for my camera!
Steph and Sean said their I Dos with the Rockies standing majestically behind them. Their vows were heartfelt and from the moment Steph walked down the aisle, every wedding guest sat in rapt attention. One thing is for sure, these two are loved.
A few words from the bride…
“My favourite part about being married is waking up from the best dream ever and realizing this is real life. Ten days after Sean proposed I got on a plane to Asia and we spent six months of our eight month engagement apart, planning our wedding over choppy wifi, often into wee hours of the morning. Not only that, my five bridesmaids were also scattered across six different countries around the world until days before the wedding. It seems crazy now but I think part of the magic of the day was seeing everything come together in a way that perfectly represented us.”
Cornerstone Theatre wedding
“Part of our desire for our wedding was that our guests would get a sense of who we are as a couple, that glimpses of our love story would be meaningfully woven into all aspects of the day. Our first dance captured this perfectly. After the father-daughter dance, my dad gave my hand to Sean and within seconds we broke out into a sequence of unexpected moves choreographed to a medley of songs significant to us. The shock and awe on people’s faces was priceless but to me the most memorable part was looking into Sean’s eyes and knowing there was no one else he’d rather be dancing with.”
