Today is a pretty exciting day as I’ve been itching to share Kari and Derek’s beautiful, Laurel Packinghouse Wedding. Kari is a blogger for Modern Girls in Vintage Pearls, Calgary Bridal Alliance, and The Glitter Guide. Since the time she and Derek booked me to photograph their wedding, I’ve had the opportunity to work with her on many fun projects, so I knew this wedding would be over-the-top-fantastic.
In addition to photographing Kari and Derek’s love story, I had the opportunity to work with some fab wedding vendors that I follow on Instagram, including Created Lovely Events, Vintage Origami and Classic Creations. What a treat!
Without further ado, I’m going to let the images just tell the story. Enjoy!
