Vibrant colours, and even brighter smiles were the themes of Emily + Jeremy’s wedding in the spring of this year. Although you wouldn’t guess it from the general demeanour, we had clouds, rain, wind, and snow on that fine day in Calgary.
This was one of those unions that is truly amazing to experience. Days of this nature are only possible through gatherings that are strengthened by deeply loving family ties, close-knit supportive friendships, and uninhibited expression of self. Gunn’s Dairy Barn in Heritage Park provided the perfect venue for these two to celebrate with their friends and dance the night away.
The glow in the eyes and faces of Emily + Jeremy while in each other’s presence that day clearly showed the strength and respect they give each other, enabling each to grow into their own unique character. It was the same glow that I see on Emily’s father’s face as he throws his arm’s around her after their father/daughter dance. No judgement, never wavering, always supporting. Patience, understanding, gentleness.
This is love.
This, is family.
