Now husband and wife, Clement & Cassandra met through friends, they worked in the same building and didn’t even know it. They began visiting on coffee breaks and hanging out with friends after work…then at Christmas 2007 Cassandra received the gift of a lifetime; her engagement ring! Immediately, the wedding planning began and on July 25th I was able to record special wedding day moments for this amazing couple.
We started with a few photos at the salon and then went to Cassandra’s house to put the finishing touches on (ie: her dress!!). With one more touch of lipstick and a dash of perfume we were on our way to the Melton Building downtown Edmonton for the “first look”. The location was perfect because this was the building that they both worked at when they first met!
Cassandra hid in her doorway as Clement walked down 103 Street – my heart was racing, I can’t even begin to imagine how they felt. Next thing you know they were back-to-back against each corner of the building still without a glimpse….it was then they held hands and Clement swung Cassandra around the corner… and for that moment the world stood still and this moment was theirs, all theirs!!!
After wrapping up photos downtown and a quick stop at Louise McKinney Park for family photos, we made our way to the Edmonton Petroleum Club for one of the most elegant ceremonies I’ve ever seen. Cassandra and Clement had the aisle lined with parasols and scattered around the room was 1,000 folded red paper cranes. Every detail was covered; from the color red being incorporated on Cassandra’s dress, to the inscribed wedding rings, the personalized chopsticks as favors, the bridesmaids carrying fans not flowers, to the delicious bubble tea served during cocktail hour. And how could I not mention the amazing lion dance that was put on as their grand entrance!!!
These pictures are just a glimpse of their beautiful day! Congratulations Clement & Cassandra. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at your wedding and a big thanks to Sonia Worobec for assisting me that day.
