:.Katlyn and Riley’s love story
These two love birds met over 10 years ago! A lot of planning went into this absolutely stunning and perfect day, SOO happy I was able to be apart of this magic!
Katlyn decided to have a first look with her father and I can say there were a few tears shed, a very emotional and sentimental moment! The ceremony was held at the Linden Gardens in Kaleden B.C where you felt like you walked into a fairytale. A short and sweet service – the couple stated their love for each other and first kiss as bride and groom in front of close friends and family. Follwing the sweet ceremony, the bridal party was an absolute hoot, cheers to the “BEST DAY EVER!”
Katlyn and Riley are truly made for each other, and I wish the best for them!
Congrats to the newly weds!

Megan and Ryan’s love story..
These love birds tied knot July 15, 2017 at MacMillian farms under an old tree in a grass field surrounded by loved ones!This wedding was extra special for me because Megan and I grew up on the same street in our little town of Castlegar B.C, we grew up together. So many friendly faces from our hometown on their stunning day made my heart smile, you could feel the love in the air. Between the first look with the brides father, mother and sisters, their intimate ceremony, emotional first dances and speeches the day was completely magical. Wishing Megan and Ryan an amazing life together, this is only the beginning for you two!
So much love. xox Ashlee Marissa

April 22, 2017 – A Calgary Wedding! Amy and Brock’s wedding took place at a little heritage park hidden within the city of Calgary, Gunn’s Dairy Barn to be exact! A little vintage blue barn located within a village of old buildings, horse stables and a beautiful dock outlooking the water. Amy and Brock agreed to have a ‘first looks’ which I ALWAYS LOVE!! The expression on their faces – priceless, I know they both will remember that moment forever. The lovebirds wed in the loft of the barn among friends and family for their intimate ceremony. They had a little photo booth set up with props for their guests and everybody danced the night away! Congrats Amy and Brock, wishing you the best life together. Nothing but love for the newly weds!

Hello!! Happy post of the new year, 2016 was a wonderful to me! I grew as a person, and flourished my professional busniess. In total I shot 11 weddings between May and October 2016 – this for me is a life accomplishment!
I L.O.V.E my job, and I love my clients who turned into family. I am so honoured to have been apart of each and every one of your weddings. Each of you let me into your homes, and made me feel like I was part of your families – I am so happy to have been there with you on the most important day of your lives. I always get so excited each and every morning I get to shoot a wedding, I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning, this is how I know I have found my passion and I am so thankful for that. I wouldn’t be able to grow without all the support of my clients.
Cheers to 2017 I can’t wait to see what this new year brings!
Here are a few of my absolute favourites from this past year.
