Romantic Silver and Black Summer Wedding in Calgary, Alberta

When Calgary is lush and green, it is such a beautiful green! Julia and Derek got married in June and Calgary wedding photographer Alan Maudie Photography took this couple and their bridal party for some amazing portraits against the stunning backdrop of the Weaslehead Natural area. Alan is a photographer with an eye for the creative and focuses on highlighting the personalities of couples in their wedding photos. Whether it’s a mountaintop elopement or an urban grandiose affair, Alan is an incredible Calgary wedding photographer whom countless couples have welcomed into their lives for one of the most important and intimate moments of their lives.

Julia and Derek held a sweet ceremony in St. Stephen’s Anglican Church in the heart of the Beltline. After saying their vows and going for photos, Julia changed gowns (there’s nothing we love more than when a bride wears two wedding gowns!) and they hosted their family and friends for a sweet black and silver wedding reception. Hear more from the couple and meet the entire Creative Team after the jump!

From the couple:

Our big day was full of magical moments, but we would say that our dances were one of our favourite parts. Derek and I had rehearsed a dance routine with our instructor, Richard, for over two months to the song “Everything” by Michael Buble. When we got out on the dance floor at the wedding, it was beautiful. We were ready and comfortable, excited, and had so much fun dancing in front of our family and friends. Then, Derek surprised me with a dance alongside his groomsmen! That was one of my favourite moments of the day. It was a hilarious medley, and he and his friends really know how to dance! What a fantastic evening it was.
