Sweet Edmonton Garden Wedding

Marc and Tracy's love story started five years before he proposed, but their romance travelled around the world with Marc popping the question at Disney World in Tokyo! This sweet garden wedding includes a first look that will bring tears to your eyes (just wait until you see the look in Marc's eyes as he sees Tracy), all perfectly photographed by Edmonton wedding photographer MInted Photography. With a gown that we are swooning over, Tracy topped off her wedding style with a light shrug that added a touch of whimsy to her look.

From the photographer: 

Marc and Tracy first met at a music festival, they danced all evening and exchange phone numbers at the end of the night. They started texting each other, slowly getting to know each other and that quickly progressed to late night conversations about our childhood, experiences and dreams for the future. After a few dates, Marc asked Tracy to be his girlfriend, 2 days after her birthday. From then on, Marc had the difficult task of celebrating birthday and anniversary back to back. After 5 years of dating, Marc proposed to Tracy overseas in Japan. It was Valentine’s day and they decided to spend the day at Tokyo Disney Land. At the end of the night, after the fireworks at Cinderella’s castle, Marc got on one leg while Tracy was sitting on a park bench. It was Tracy’s first time in Japan, in the happiest place on Earth, a memory that they will remember forever and hope to revisit on future anniversaries.

The wedding day flew by so very fast, full of happiness, laughs, emotions and happy tears. We were blessed with perfect weather. The day prior was all smoky and very hot with +35 degree weather as they did a Chinese Tea Ceremony whilst gathered with family and friends. We prayed the wedding would have good weather and hoped the rain would hold until the end of the ceremony. Thankfully, it did just that. The morning had a bit of rain, just enough to clear the smokiness away, followed by a mix of sun and cloud for the pictures. The rain, came just when dinner began, we could not ask for a more perfect day. Marc fondly remember the time we took to take some pictures in the rain during the reception, we love the range of photos we had taken during the day. We both loved our first look, we had our family and friends to share in the moment as we saw each other and read our private notes that we had made for each other. One of Tracy’s memorable moment was being able to show gratitude to her parents by thanking them for sacrificing so much to come to Canada in order to provide her and her brother a better life. It was a very touching speech and a special moment for her family. Overall, we are very happy our family and friends took part in our special day and made us feel loved and special.
