Their first date was a trip to the Human Body exhibit at the Telus World of Science on July 14th, 2008 to look at cadavers. Not your typical first date location but Kim & Tyler are not your typical couple. Kim is a physician and Tyler is an engineer who loves math. The two met in chemistry class and so it was fitting that they have such great chemistry together. 315, 360,000 seconds later, on July 14th, 2018, Kim & Tyler were married at the University of Alberta Botanic Garden surrounded by their closest friends and family members.
The day started with the guys and girls getting ready in the two pavilions located inside the Kurimoto Japanese Gardens. Although the weather in the morning looked a bit suspect, by the time the ceremony rolled around, the rain clouds disappeared and we just had to deal with a bit of wind. Their ceremony was held on the wedding patio and afterward, we stopped by the brand new Aga Khan Garden to do a few photos with the wedding party. Since it just opened a few weeks ago, it’s still a very popular part of the garden so it was challenging trying to do photos with large crowds around but we did manage to find a couple of openings to capture some photos of Kim & Tyler and their wedding party.
From there we headed to the University of Alberta where Kim & Tyler spent many years earning their degrees and then it was off to the Edmonton Riverboat (formerly The Edmonton Queen) for their reception. It was our first time on the boat and the first wedding on the Edmonton Riverboat since it was recently renovated. It made for a really unique reception location and after dinner and speeches, Kim & Tyler surprised their guests with their first dance on the upper deck of the boat and a sunset sail down to the new Walterdale Bridge.
We had such a great day woking with Elyse & the team from Jennifer Bergman Weddings. It was also a chance for us to catch up with one of our past couples David & Alyssa who recently had a little girl named Grace who also happened to be the flower girl for Kim & Tyler. Special thanks to all of the other great vendors who helped bring their wedding to life.
