Spruce Meadows Wedding – Deanna and Jeff
Walking around Spruce Meadows on a perfect summer day can feel a little bit like being on the set of a Jane Austen movie. There really was no more fitting place for a couple like Deanna and Jeff to get married. They are both so kind and calm; the day was stress-free, something that rarely happens on a wedding day. It was clear to me that enjoying their wedding to the fullest was a top priority for them. To achieve this they wisely hired a great wedding planner, Julianne Young. If couples planning a Calgary wedding could follow me around for a season and see the difference between weddings where the couple hired an experienced planner vs weddings where they didn’t, the main difference they would notice is how much calmer and relaxed the couples with the planners were. Typically this results in a couple who is enjoying their day more. So, basically, I had a perfect couple to photograph at an amazing venue on a sunny summer day. A Calgary Wedding Photographer like myself looks forward to days like these all winter.
There is a lot of love between these two and the guests were so excited to be a part of this day. Instead of talking about it I hope this selection of photos shows it!
We started out in front of the British House with the boys who were patiently waiting for the girls (getting ready inside).
I have had the pleasure of photographing Highland VIP’s 1952 Bentley Mk VI (aka Dorothy) many times and it always adds a lot of class to the photo shoot. Watching it roll down the cobblestone (ok interlocking paving stone, but whatever) with Deanna in the backseat made it really easy to feel like we were in a different century altogether.
I had Jeff patiently waiting with his back turned for the big reveal.

Julianne and her team (Julianne Young Weddings) did a great job on the decor for the reception in the British House. It didn’t overpower the room, just made it better.
What a group!
