Have you ever seen the movie ‘Serendipity’? Well if you haven’t there is a scene at the beginning where two perfect strangers test fate and each go into an elevator to see if they end up on the same floor. They pick the same floor but when a kid gets on the same elevator he pushes all the buttons leading to them going their separate ways. Spoiler alert, they do end up together years later. But I couldn’t stop thinking of this scene at Karla + Matt’s wedding. We were heading down to do the first look at Alchemy bar (so we were already heading to the same floor) but as we got off the elevator the door directly across opened up with Matt needing to be quickly turned around while we hid Karla before the big first look. So they may have been going to the same floor at the same time anyway but I still think it was a magical moment that their paths were so in sync we almost had the first look at the elevator doors. I’m just glad the camera was rolling the whole time.
Venue(s): Getting ready venue was the J W Marriott ICE District in downtown Edmonton, first look venue was Alchemy Bar inside the Marriott, for an indoor photography venue we used Always Occasions at Manchester Square and finally for the ceremony and reception venue we were celebrating at the Foundry Room in the Oliver Exchange building.
