A Botanic Garden Vow Exchange and Tea Ceremony // St. Albert, Alberta
Amanda and Jerry exchanged rings and vows in the rose garden of St. Albert’s Botanic Garden, in front of their closest family and friends. After lunch and snacks, they then hosted a traditional Chinese tea ceremony in the gazebo. The rain held up just long enough for both ceremonies, however it did start sprinkling a little during portraits! No worries here though… with the help of umbrellas and warm hugs they were troopers and stayed out in the cold and rain with me.
We started the portrait session in the gardens of the St. Albert Botanic Park and then headed down to Kinnard Park, just off Jasper Avenue for some downtown skyline photos. The evening ended at the Dynasty Century Palace in China town. Guests enjoyed a traditional 10 course meal, complete with a gelato bar and homemade macaroons from the bride!
