Empire Ballroom Hotel MacDonald Wedding
Angela & Des’ fall Hotel Macdonald wedding was beautiful! We started out at home with 2 tea ceremonies and some fun door games before heading downtown to the Citadel Theatre for their wedding ceremony. Like most fall weddings, we saw sun then rain and then sun again… oh Edmonton. We went to the river valley for the first round of photos and then back to Hotel MacDonald for more photos on the terrace. After photos the wedding party took a break and we photographed all the awesome details in the Empire Ballroom for their reception. It was s fun night and Des and the boys surprised Angela with a special dance! Here’s the story of Des & Angela’s Hotel MacDonald Wedding!
