Steph and Donovan’s Grant notley gazebo wedding amidst beautiful outdoor of river valley in Edmonton, Alberta

03 Jul Steph and Donovan’s Grant notley gazebo wedding amidst beautiful outdoor of river valley in Edmonton, Alberta

Shraddha Rathi was working on the images made in Banff National park for Cristie and Ryan when she received a phone call from Stephanie who started the conversation with ‘I am not sure if our budget would allow us to have you shoot our wedding next month …’ and as the conversation progressed she revealed that its a very small outdoor ceremony on a Sunday morning with the beautiful river valley in the backdrop and Shraddha said  ‘I will want to meet you for a coffee’

Following a few days Shraddha and Steph were at a starbucks in south Edmonton when they bonded over cuppa as Steph revealed that they are planning a big wedding in 2017 but for now due to certain family reasons (She comes from Hongkong while Donovan is born raised in Alberta) they are holding this small ceremony and she would only want DreamGraphers to shoot it even though its just a small event but it means a lot to her…over the course of coffee Steph told the story of how they met as she was at the same tennis court as Donovan always played and shared a game and before they realized they were spending all the time together not just a game !

At 10 PM on the night before the big day, Shraddha received a phone call from Steph and conversation went something like:

Shraddha : ‘ Shouldn’t you be asleep for the early start tomorrow? ‘

Steph : ‘ ummm so much to do ! I was wondering is its possible to do First look photos tomorrow morning ‘

Shraddha : ‘ Lets see, just wait for my call in the morning…and dont show up until I ask you to ‘

Following that Shraddha called Donovan and made arrangements to meet a bit early away from the ceremony location for a surprise and this is what happened …

Shraddha made sure to capture that connection between them on their wedding day by making extra time to take them to the same tennis court where their eyes met first and their love flourished 🙂stephanie-donovan-260stephaniedonovan-307-2stephaniedonovan-310stephaniedonovan-324 stephaniedonovan-337stephaniedonovan-338 stephanie-donovan-299stephanie-donovan-306
