A Simple Elegant Wedding in Edmonton, Alberta

It was love at first sight for Carlee and Edwin, who met while working together at Wheaton Honda, a local car dealership. The couple planned a simple, elegant wedding at the Snow Valley Ski Club in Edmonton where their guests enjoyed personalized M&Ms, hip-hop dancers and a festive photo booth. However, both Carlee and Edwin agree that their best moment occurred before the elegant wedding ceremony when they first spied each other in their backyard. “I walked out, tapped him on the shoulder, and we spent five to ten minutes just admiring each other and our day,” Carlee gushes. “It was such a special time for us.”
