Intimate Backyard Calgary Wedding

Jackie and Graham were one of my couples that had to persevere through planning a wedding during the pandemic. And yet, their stunning intimate backyard Calgary wedding was nothing short of perfection!

Choosing to have an intimate backyard wedding was ideal for these two. Jackie and Graham had just recently bought their first home together.  It was the perfect location to host their family and friends. Both worked so hard to finish renovations for the wedding and I honestly can’t believe how much work they accomplished. So much love was put into this project and I think the couple would agree that it was worth all the hard work!

We were blessed with the most gorgeous Calgary summer day. Jackie and Graham took me to the most epic look out for their First Look and Portraits. We then joined the family back at their home for their beautiful ceremony and had a delicious dinner while listening to heart felt speeches. Both laughter and tears were had! The dancing then begun, thanks to Graham’s mom, and the party was amazing! Still trying to figure out a way to be adopted into this family!!!

Here are the kindest words from the couple themselves.

“In a time when wedding planning was difficult, Sue was dependable, flexible, and always there to adjust to whatever requests we had. When we said we cancelled our venue (twice!) and said we were going to host our own wedding at our new house, she was nothing but encouraging and supportive. Her positive attitude and energy throughout the planning process was only amplified on our wedding day and by the end of our special day, we were calling her cousin Sue because she felt like family. Her knowledge of the wedding industry and local services was not something we expected of our photographer, but Sue goes above and beyond to support her couples whenever possible. These photos capture every aspect of our intimate special day perfectly and we are so excited to have made a new friend in Sue.” Graham + Jackie
