A Romantic and Whimsical Summer Backyard Wedding in Alberta – Sarah Pukin

February 18, 2021


Backyard Wedding in Alberta that was the most Romantic and Whimsical as they come!

I’m so excited to show you this stunning backyard Wedding in Alberta. Above all what a crazy ride 2020 was for all my couples. In short the ups and downs the rescheduling and random quick changes to rules had everyone changing plans and rolling with the punches.

For example one of my favourite Weddings from this past summer moved venues multiple times, changed cities, came up with multiple plans and in the end, truly it was a magical day full of love and heart.

The weather for Summer Backyard Weddings in Alberta can be unpredictable but in this case the weather was absolutely perfect.

However to accommodate all rules and make sure guests were safe and happy, their new plan called for a romantic and whimsical summer backyard Wedding ceremony and reception.

For example,  guests who lived together were sat together and those who were compromised were kept at a very safe distance.

Although their original plan sounded absolutely amazing I can’t even explain how much I enjoyed the backyard vibe they ended up going with. It had some of the most beautiful trees – tall and full of life. The space was the most stunning spot for their I-dos.

The backyard was open ended that backed onto the river valley.

Morning Preparation

In the morning I went to the girls and grabbed a few moments of preparation before heading to the Groom to capture some prep photos of him as well before we went to the first look location.

Later these two met on a Family members private acreage for their intimate first look. They shared hugs smiles and laughs as they saw one another for the first time.

Later on the drive to the first look the skies started to look like they might be calling for rain – after a quick sprinkle the skies opened back up to full beautiful bright warmth.

Adventuring together

Before the ceremony we went on a little adventure around the city to grab some moments with their Wedding party. And of course more cute moments of their connection.

As the Bride walked down the aisle a breeze came to the air and the popular fluff started to dance around the backyard – it was something out of a movie. In any case other than getting a big chunk of one in my eye, it was so magical.

(Yes in case you’re wondering it isn’t pleasant getting popular fluff in your eye – it feels like a bug. I waited until after the ceremony to get it out so it’s a moment I’m never going to forget!).

The ceremony was so moving – I love how playful these two are together.

Following the ceremony we went for a few more photos while the backyard was transformed into their reception. A food truck catered an amazing dinner. Everyone was able to choose their own pizza and the food truck even had a wood-burning pizza oven in it. Therefore, not only was it super yummy but such an amazing way to have food at a reception.

I noticed over the last five years a lot of couples who do tent Weddings have food trucks as its super cute and customizable for their guests. I love that they could have their backyard Wedding catered by the food truck! Oh and for appetizers everyone got to choose nachos, dry ribs and chicken wings! It was super yummy!

A tiny Wedding crasher

The reception was topped off with speeches, their romantic first dance and a visit from the neighbours Weiner dog who might have been trying to sneak over for a scratch or two and a pizza crust. In conclusion we will never know his motivation but he was one dashing Wedding crasher.

For those thinking of having a summer backyard Wedding in Alberta I can’t recommend it enough. By comparison it was absolutely perfect – no it wasn’t your traditional plated dinner as most expect but it was so much more than that – it was all of the important things Wedding should be about.

Spending the day with your love, your friends, your family. Celebrating your relationship and commitment. Eating good food having good drinks and making an amazing memory you will have for the rest of your life!
