Shelby & John – Rutherford House Wedding

Shelby & John – Rutherford House Wedding
June 28, 2012 Haley Shandro

Shelby & John’s wedding took place on a beautiful summer day, which was good because they had an outdoor ceremony. In Edmonton that’s always a risk since the weather is so unpredictable, but we were lucky enough to have a beautiful warm sunny day for them. Not that I don’t love wedding photography in the rain…but…

If you’re a fan of our Facebook page (and if not, why aren’t you yet?) you will have seen a sneak peek of this beautiful wedding, and now here is the whole story for you.

Florals: The Wild Orchid
Hair: Shelby’s sister
Makeup: Sephora
Ceremony: Rutherford House
Reception: Continental Treat

Shelby & John opted for a first look at the Mettera hotel on Whyte Ave, where Shelby got ready.

Shelby gifted John this beautiful Gibson guitar as a wedding present. I can’t show you a few of the photos that Bruce took of John with his guitar.  Let’s just say he has a sense of humour. Shelby & John met in high school but didn’t start dating until they connected in University, when Shelby saw John playing guitar with his band.

Shelby’s bouquet incorporated beading from John’s great grandmother’s wedding – they share a wedding anniversary as his great grandparents were married exactly 100 years earlier!

The intimate ceremony was followed by a fun reception at Continental Treat restaurant on Whyte Ave.  We used to live right across the street but never went in. It always looked good, so I was glad to have a chance to try it out!  The atmosphere the whole night felt like a fun cocktail party.
