I’m not sure how I get so lucky with being connected with amazing people like Kyle and Alana. From the first time I met them in Starbucks I knew it was the beginning of a wonderful friendship. Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know these two. Their love story began back in summer camp when they were younger. It wasn’t until years later that they were reunited and so were the sparks. Their day began so relaxed. There were no nerves as they knew they were meant to be together. How can you be nervous over that? It was a day of overwhelming love. Love for each other and love for their families.
After a relaxing morning of getting ready we headed out to the ceremony. A beautiful little church just outside Calmar. This church isn’t just a church. This church was the same church Kyle’s grandparents got married in, his parent’s were married in and now Kyle and Alana. I’ve never photographed a Ukrainian Catholic Ceremony before and wow what a gorgeous ceremony. From the candles that were carried in memory of loved ones no longer with us to the live choir singing amazing hymn’s in the balcony. These two have waited along time for this moment and the joy on their faces once they were pronounced husband and wife was contagious.
We headed out side and did portraits around the church. There was an amazing stone bell tower with a gorgeous arch. Architecture can add so much to an image, plus it had great light on a bright, hot August day. Their wedding party, which consisted of all of their brothers, surrounded these two with jokes and laughter. I can’t imagine a more perfect wedding day.
Kyle and Alana, no one deserves this perfect day more than the two of you.
I am so beyond happy that I got to be there to witness the beginning of your legacy. Thank you a million times over for being so incredible. I hope this new adventure together gets better each and every day. Your joy is contagious and I absolutely loved being surrounded by it on your wedding day. Cheers to many more decades of love and happiness!
