A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of photographing Yasmeen & Rob’s Lebanese wedding in Edmonton. When two people who come from different cultural and religious backgrounds decide to get married, it’s always such a joy to see how all of the friends and family come together and take the time to learn and pay respect to one another’s cultures and traditions. The breaking down of barriers and tolerance for someone who might be different from you is even more important given the current political climate and divisiveness in the US and to a lesser extent in Canada.

Yasmeen & Rob chose to get married at the home of Yasmeen’s grandparents and it was a full house filled with lots of love and plenty of delicious food courtesy of Stir Catering. Yasmeen got ready there while Rob got dressed over at their house. Just a few weeks prior to the wedding, Rob broke his foot in a judo incident so it made getting around on the day a bit more challenging but Rob was able to wear a peg leg brace which made him a bit more mobile than he would have been with just crutches.

Once Rob was ready, he headed over with his family to greet Yasmeen and her family. They then proceeded to have their ceremony in the family room which was followed by a tradition where close family members give jewelry to the bride and groom. Meanwhile the other guests gathered in the family room to enjoy some dancing and more great food along with some delicious and very strong Lebanese coffee.

After the ceremony and family photos were done, we headed down to MacTaggart Sanctuary to catch the last bit of daylight to do photos with the entire bridal party before making our way over to the Fantasyland Hotel for their reception. Yasmeen and Rob made a grand entrance led in by traditional Lebanese Zaffe dancers from the dance troupe Afrah Al Majd. The rest of the evening featured lots of dancing, more delicious food, and a cake cutting with a traditional Lebanese sword.

Enjoy this sneak peek from Yasmeen & Rob’s Lebanese wedding in Edmonton.

Wedding season in Edmonton is starting to wind down as we head into November but we still have a few amazing weddings to share with you. Up next is Sapna & Scott’s fall wedding that took place inside Zinc restaurant which is attached to the Art Gallery of Alberta in downtown Edmonton. This was the first of two weddings for Sapna & Scott who are planning to have a large Indian wedding sometime in 2019 which will include more of their extended families.

For this wedding, they wanted to go with something much more casual and intimate and Zinc was the perfect venue for their ceremony and reception. Before all of the wedding festivities took place, we met up with Sapna & Scott in the River Valley to photograph them among the remaining fall leaves on a very blustery afternoon. While most of the leaves had already hit the ground, we managed to find a few spots that still had some leaves left on the trees and Sapna & Scott had no problems cuddling up with each other to keep warm. After shooting in the River Valley for a little while, we headed over to the Muttart for a few photos on top of the pyramids before heading back to the Art Gallery of Alberta for a few more wedding photos prior to the ceremony & reception.

Scott and Sapna chose not to have a formal wedding party but opted instead to have their parents stand up with them during their ceremony. After the ceremony and cake cutting, both families sat down to a delicious meal from Zinc that featured a variety of western and Indian dishes. The evening was capped off by a few speeches, the shoe game and a few rounds of shots before everyone called it a night.

We hope you enjoy this sneak peek from Sapna & Scott’s wedding day.

Sapna & Scott are getting married this weekend and we recently had the opportunity to get together with them at their new home in Kesswick which is a brand-new development in Edmonton’s southwest.

Scott loves to watch the NFL and since we did their session on a Sunday, we started out with a few casual photos in their home where Scott was able to enjoy a bit of the game while snuggling with Sapna on the couch. Afterwards we went for a stroll through their new neighbourhood and discovered some beautiful walking trails with views of the river valley and the North Saskatchewan river.

Enjoy this sneak peek from their engagement session and keep an eye on the blog for sneak peeks from their wedding day.
