We share a love of good coffee + Harry Styles + that was more than enough to kickstart our love for these two. This was one of our favourite engagement sessions last season. We spent this summer night wandering aimlessly around Bridgeland, stopping for coffee + vinyl browsing + wherever else it felt right, playing around as the sun went down. It felt perfectly casual + full of intimacy + goofiness, just like the best kind of date nights with your best bud.
Nelson + Steph got married at the groom's family property in Crows Nest Pass. From the golden fields, you can see the mountain that he proposed to her on.
They had a friend do the ceremony and he "read" from an issue of Thrasher Magazine. They had guests throw dried flower petal confetti during the recessional. They had a whiskey bar + pizza delivered for their late night snack. They had yard games set up and everyone was playing Spike Ball all night. They changed into comfy (but chic as hell) alternate wedding clothes after the ceremony. Steph surprised Nelson with a Kendrick Lamar track for their first dance.
Instead of stressing about their schedule on the day of, they decided to focus more on the two of them soaking up every moment together + their guests having a good time. Their wedding, like them, was relaxed, creative, and wildly fun.
