Lena & Mike. University of Alberta Botanic Garden Wedding.

University of Alberta Botanic Garden wedding photography

Lena & Mike’s wedding this August was incredible. They said their “I do’s” at the beautiful University of Alberta Botanic Garden and we had a chance to check out the new Aga Kahn Garden for some photos. Lena & Mike are super kind & fun and it was such a joy to be part of their wedding day.

Here’s what Lena said about the big day: “Some things that really stood out to us were the small, fun, unexpected moments throughout the day, like the huge beetle that landed on my dress during the outdoor ceremony. We also really enjoyed our first dance, as the song was quite meaningful to us and it was a moment in the day where we could really relax and just have a great time! However, the main part that was our favourite was just the overwhelming sense of pure happiness we both felt throughout the day, with all of our families there, our close friends, and of course, each other. It truly was perfect!”
