Love filled the air in Edmonton this past weekend as we had the incredible privilege of documenting Kathleen and Ernel's extraordinary Filipino wedding day. From the breathtaking ceremony at St. Joseph's Cathedral Basilica to the lively reception at the Matrix Hotel, every moment was infused with pure joy and genuine happiness.
On the morning of their wedding day, Kathleen and Ernel prepared for their special union at the Matrix Hotel, each in their own separate spaces. The guys gathered together, suiting up with a mix of excitement and nervous anticipation. Meanwhile, the girls indulged in the art of pampering; laughter and cheerful conversations filled the room as they shared stories and exchanged heartfelt words. It was a light and joyful morning, setting the tone for the love-filled celebration that awaited Kathleen and Ernel.
As we arrived at the historic basilica, the anticipation was palpable. The ornate architecture and soft glow of sunlight filtering through stained glass windows created an ethereal atmosphere, setting the stage for a truly magical union. Kathleen looked radiant as she walked down the aisle, accompanied by the heartfelt melodies of the organ.
