Shannon & Andy – Retro Macrame inspired glam Wedding Calgary.

When Shannon told me she was going to Macrame everything for her Wedding and she had purchased a 70s orange couch for a lounge area I knew this wedding had my name written all over it.

These two unique and chill individuals did everything without following a traditional vibe for their day.

When a random snowstorm that lasted all of two hours decided to drop (just before the beginning of their first look) these two had the perfect fall weather for their wedding day-o-love. We wandered through Kensington for some romantic and organic moments with a few stellar editorial style shots before heading to the ceremony.

Their ceremony included a sweet sand ceremony with their daughter and a beer ceremony with their MOH and Best Man. How cool, right?

Food stations and heartwarming words laughed the night away and brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Can we say Tacos?

Sweet vibes were sung during cocktail hour by the chillest duo Sammy Jean & Jamil Ahmed and the night was danced away to the amazing talents of The Mocking Shadows.

Congratulations on such a wonderful day of memories Shannon & Andy. May you look at these photos and remember everyone’s warm hearts for you both.
