Calgary Wedding Photographer | Bonterra Trattoria
Lisa & Jason’s wedding brings us back to the hot and sunny days of September in Calgary. I met up with Lisa at their home (and I drooled a lot because their house is gorgeous! Was a little bit jealous, I had to admit. The only thing it was missing was a cat, but that problem has been fixed now!) for getting with her and the girls before the ceremony. We headed off to the ceremony at the Bonterra Trattoria on the patio. We’re all there are ready to go until it was discovered that the marriage license was left behind… uh oh!!So things got started a little later than planned, but all worked out in the end! After the ceremony, we wandered the streets around Bonterra Trattoria for the wedding party and couples photos. It was a pretty toasty day and I know walking in heels is awful, but everyone stuck with me to make it through! I have to admit that I get a little sad looking at Lisa & Jason’s wedding photos, and not for reasons you might think. I wish I had a little more time to get more photos with Jason and the boys. Not just the posey ones, but the more real and casual photos, especially with his Best Man Mike. Mere weeks after the wedding Mike was diagnosed with terminal cancer and passed not long after. It was shocking and unexpected and it makes me sad to think how fun and full of life he was on the wedding day and now he’s gone. I can’t even imagine the pain that Jason feels with losing such an important person. Ok, back to the happy… We continued on with photos of Lisa & Jason and we had previously scouted a wall with a crown for photos because, well, Jason’s last name is King… so the crown kinda made sense… the newly crowned Mr & Mrs King! Ok, now it’s reception time and we’re back at Bonterra Trattoria for a seriously tasty dinner that lasts for hours. I’m serious. Hours of so much tasty you will eat yourself into a food coma at least once. Once dinner was done, we were outside for speeches on the patio and enjoying the night air. After lots of laughs and a few tears, back inside we went for the dances. Here’s the story of Lisa & Jason’s Bonterra Trattoria wedding in Calgary!
