Jillian and Tyson’s wedding was extra special for me. Jillian is my cousin! Our dad’s are brothers. I was so happy when I was asked to photograph their wedding, that I said yes even though I was officially on maternity leave. So many cousin memories, mostly involving playing super nintendo at Jillian’s house when we were kids! Also they had a really awesome inflatable pool in their backyard that I was jealous of. Since I grew up in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere, we would stay at their house when we would go to the big city. It was always very exciting! I always loved going to their house.
They were married in the beautiful new Calgary LDS temple. It started raining as soon as family formals ended, but I actually really love the photos on the temple grounds with the umbrella. As you can tell from the photos, Jillian has a million watt smile. When I had her be “serious” in some of the photos, I hardly recognized her, she really does smile all the time! And Tyson’s red hair. He atoumatically fits into the Hall family with his coveted red hair. I’m already jealous of their future babies which I know will have red hair.
Thanks so much you two for letting me be a part of your day!
Oh and I guess I should explain the cardboard cutout. This is a cardboard cutout of Jillian’s little sister, Lauren, who was unable to be there due to being on a mission. So she hung out all day with us, occasionally creeping people out. I think she scared everyone in the house that morning because she looked so real!
This is when a grasshopper was crawling up Jillian’s dress. I thought it was a spider so I was freaking out too!
The bridesmaids and groomsmen having dance party… look at those moves!
