Calgary Wedding Photographer | Alex & Jon’s Carriage House Inn Wedding

Alex & Jon had a most fabulous and funtastic Carriage House Inn wedding in Calgary this Spring – and what a day filled with hilarious moments, over the top zaniness, and all personality – AWESOME!

We seriously love when couples honour their love, and their story with a wedding that is perfectly ‘them’.  An elevator no look first look, a live-singing band surprise, breakfast for dinner, a breakdancing groom – just a few of the amazingly awesome ways Alex & Jon honoured their love & their story!

We knew not to expect any less from when we first met Alex & Jon at the Calgary Bridal Expo and they excitedly told us their dreams of a Zombie-inspired shoot (stay tuned for our post-wedding Celebrate session with these two!) and then again when we met them for their Banff engagement session at Johnson Lake – click here to revisit their engagement photos.

For their wedding day, Raf first joined them for getting ready photos and then they wanted a no-look first look – that is, they wanted to have a photo and a moment together but without seeing each other face to face. We came up with the idea of using the elevators – which of course, provided much hilarity as the elevator Jon was in kept being called away (with him in it) just as they were lining up the photo haha awesome!

She invited a local live band to sing “All You Need is Love” on their recessional into the mingling area outside the ceremony room. Funny story from this point was that Jon was so excited about having just married his love Alex, that it took him way long to actually realize what was happening outside the room for them.  LOVE it! These two are seriously the BEST!.One Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn Wedding

For post-ceremony photos, Alex & Jon, their funtastic wedding party, and Raf piled into the limo and headed to Fish Creek Provincial Park – such a pretty green space and what a treat to have such beauty bluebird skies, wispy white clouds, and sun for their outdoor photos – what timing!One Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingCalgary_Wedding_Photographer_065Calgary_Wedding_Photographer-179-stitchOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn WeddingOne Edition | Calgary Carriage House Inn Wedding

It was then back to the Carriage House Inn for a rockin’ reception. One thing to know and love about Alex & Jon is that they LOVE breakfast – so obviously it was a no brainer decision for them to serve breakfast for their dinner – so neat!

Meg and Raf were amazing! We met them at the Bridal Expo in September and were immediately drawn to their creative and excited energy. Meg was delightful to bounce ideas back and forth with over e-mail. She was the best at responding promptly. Raf really made us feel comfortable posing on camera during our engagement shoot. It was our first time getting professional photos taken so we were a bit nervous, but Raf was very responsive to our ideas and making sure we had a variety of shots. On the day of the wedding he was on time, dressed nice and up for anything. We had a pretty rowdy bridal party and Raf was great at knowing when to make suggestions and also just capturing us being us. He ended up having to sit on the floor of the limo due to space, but never complained, he was such a great sport and ended up getting some fantastic photos. During the ceremony and speeches Raf just silently did his thing in the background, never interrupting, but also ended up always being right there when we needed him (super powers?). My husband and me are pretty fun and non traditional people, so it was great to have a photographer that was on the same page for what we needed. And given the amount of stress surrounding a wedding, (and minor bridezilla moments) Raf handled himself professionally, but was relaxed and fun to be around (he even solved the catastrophe of the missing signs). We love the variety of packages they offer, and the fact that Meg wasn’t pushy in upselling us. She listened to what we had planned and made an honest suggestion of what she thought we needed and didn’t need. The sneak peek photos we have seen are beautiful and I’m so excited to see the rest of Raf’s work. Our entire wedding party and family were thoroughly impressed with his eye for a good photo opportunity and pleasant interactions with everyone. Overall we couldn’t have asked for a better team to handle our wedding photography, and we can’t wait to work with them again on our celebration shoot.
