When a unique outdoor ceremony space meets a stunning wedding party you get one perfect wedding day. This classic wedding was held in Big Valley, Alberta. Kari and Dustan chose the Big Valley Roundhouse for their ceremony space and I think it made a gorgeous backdrop. The reception was held at the Big Valley Arena which Kari turned into a fabulous space. Sweetlight Photography captured every detail of Kari and Dustan’s wedding and we can’t wait to share it all with you.
I think Kari had a clear vision of how she wanted her wedding day to be, it was soft, warm and full of pretty touches. The day had a very neutral and clean color pallet with pops of navy. Kari wore a beautiful lace, long sleeved gown, so classic. The bridesmaid dresses were a mix of styles but all stayed in a soft neutral color. The groom, Dustan, wore a grey suit that fit in perfect with the neutral pallet. Then to add a small pop of bold color the groomsmen wore navy suits.
My favorite part of this wedding has to be Kari’s nieces who were the cutest flower girls ever. You can tell how happy these little girls are to share this special day with their aunt. Their flower girl dresses almost matched Kari’s wedding gown, they are super pretty. My heart just melts looking at these sweethearts.
Sweetlight Photography shares…As I styled the details, one of Kari’s niece’s who was a little flower girl kept me company and told me all about her role that day. It was so sweet to photograph bridal details while listening to a 6 year old girl’s view of a wedding! It’s so magical and special to her in so many ways! It gave me a fresh perspective at the beginning of the day and I loved that!!
Kari and Dustan, thank you for allowing me to be part of one of the most special days of your lives and trusting me with the responsibility of preserving your legacy. You two are truly a beautiful couple with big hearts and so many FRIENDS!!! I LOVED working with you and I can’t wait to show off your day!!!
Congratulations Kari + Dustan!!!
