Nick & Sarah’s Water Valley Wedding
Red Bloom Photography
So happy to share another beautiful wedding with another one of my amazing couples.
Nick & Sarah had a intimate wedding at one of the cutest little venues in the Calgary
area. They chose Water Valley Church to host their closest friends and family for their
intimate outdoor wedding. This venue is so absolutely perfect for an intimate wedding.
Sarah got ready in the cutest little Gazebo that is on the property and after doing a private
first look with Nick they had their ceremony in this quaint church. Afterwards we header out
on this scorcher of a day for photos…not gonna lie this was one of the hottest days
that I have shot on. I was melting ha ha. We tried to find some shade for a bit of a break from the
heat but when that wasn’t enough I gave them a mini break to cool down in the truck. I really
wanted to go to the River for some photos so we want to the campground where they had
parked their own trailer to find some water. But of course we had the same idea as every other
person in Water Valley that day and the river was packed. But this adventurous couple
said heck yes to beating our way off the beaten path and through the bush to get to a more
private part of the river and it was so worth it. The light was beautiful and there was a ever
so slight breeze off the water.
~ Some words from the Bride & Groom ~
Please share the proposal story with us?
We were on our way to have our annual birthday celebration in Banff (his birthday is December 14th and mine is the 18th)
and we had some time to kill before we could check into our hotel so we decided to drive around the
Minnewanka Loop. We stopped at one of our favorite spots, Johnson Lake, it was -30 out that day and
Nick insisted we had to get out of the vehicle to take some pictures. I reluctantly agreed to get
out and walk down for some pictures since it was so cold out! We snapped a few pictures and the next
thing I know Nick was down on one knee with the ring and asked me to marry him! The rest of the day we
were on cloud nine and had the best time celebrating in Banff!
Most memorable moment from your wedding day?
(How cute they answered the same)
Bride – the first look
Groom – the first look
It was so amazing getting to see each other before the ceremony and have that special moment together.
We think it took a lot of the nerves away too.
When you look back on your day, how would you describe it in 1-2 sentences to people who
ask about your wedding?
It was so intimate! Exactly how we wanted our special day to be. We celebrated with a small group
of people who we love and know us best.
What was the easiest vendor or wedding related decision you made for your wedding day?
and why was it so easy?
(Oh man, I am totally tearing up at their answer. Thank you Sarah & Nick for choosing and trusting me)
There are so many photographers out there that it can be overwhelming to start. We knew the style of
photography we wanted and when we found Monica we knew it would be the perfect fit! After meeting
her for our engagement shoot we were even more assured we made the right decision. She is an amazing photographer,
she puts you at ease and makes you feel totally comfortable!
What was the hardest decision you made for your wedding day? what made it so harder then the others?
Trying to find a perfect venue for the intimate wedding we wanted was difficult. We went back and
forth on where and when we wanted to do it. Then we stumbled upon the Water Valley Church Event Centre
online, we went out to see it shortly after and fell in love. With so many options out there and limited date
availability choosing a venue can be difficult but we couldn’t be happier with our decision!
Advice to couples planning their initmate wedding day?
No matter what do what will make you two happy! This is your day and it’s something you’ll
always look back on and remember. Don’t worry about other people and their expectations,
worry about what will make your day special and memorable!
And now here is Nick & Sarah’s Wedding Story
This cute building was the perfect setting for Sarah to get into her dress.When she was getting ready her dog Cricket was never far from her side.Nick & Sarah chose to do a private first look just moments before the ceremony and when he saw her he gave her a little whistle. So cute.It was such a treat to work with a small wedding party. Sometimes there is 7 on each side and I am trying to get them all to pay attention but these two were a breeze to work with.And a few of their rustic details from the day.
