Fun. That is how I would sum up the June wedding of Alyse and Ken. They are a fun, easy going couple with a great young son (Avery) that wanted nothing more than to have an enjoyable day with their family and friends on the shores of Stoney Lake at the popular Viamede Resort.
My time started with Ken, his son, Best-man and father at his parents cottage in the Burleigh Falls area. After the fellows were done, I quickly drove to Viamede and spent an hour with Alyse and her Maid-of-Honor in the newly renovated Honeymoon Suite. After a couple small hiccups with Alyse’s dress were dealt with, Alyse was looking beautiful and set for her wedding day. A short walk from the honeymoon suite took us to the awesome waterfront ceremony location that is commonly used at Viamede. Even with including the unique element of a dove release, their wedding ceremony went off without a hitch. After the ceremony we did a quick group photo of everyone at their wedding (there is a great spot to do this next to the popular ceremony location), we quickly had fun getting the family formals done and went straight into the wedding party and bride & groom photos. With the ease of walking around Viamede, we were at their reception for the exact time we needed to be. This was immediately followed by a very well done meal. I’d like to thank Alyse and Ken for including me in the fantastic meal they had ordered. After the meal some heart felt and humorous speeches were delivered and then there was a quick transition into the dancing. A great end to a great day.
Here are just a few of my favorites from their day.
