Fort Edmonton Park Winter Wedding. Alicia & Scott.

March 11, 2010

Alicia had always dreamt of a winter wedding. She looked so stunning against the crisp snow and fortress walls of Fort Edmonton Park, trembling slightly in Scott’s arms. It was as if time stood still, inviting us to step through whole historical periods and go back in time over 150 years!  Alicia wanted an antique-old-warm feel to the images and memories – this first photo is one of my favorites. It was the first frame taken after we got out of the car and was meant to be a warm-up, but something special happened…

I knew I had seen horses out of the corner of my eye earlier, but how could I get Alicia & Scott next to them? I decided we should give it a try anyway, and I’m so glad we did! These beauties approached us even before Alicia picked up a handful of hay – it was so serene and special.

    My pleasure Trevor!! Hope you managed to stay warm if your wedding was in Edmonton – the trick for those guys was Captain Morgain Spiced Rum :))
