Grand Wedding at the Hudson


Seth & Bailey
Downtown Calgary, Alberta
Emily Michelson | Calgary Wedding Photographer 


"Our wedding day was so very special to us because our families have known each other since before we were born. Our parents grew up together and stayed friends as they got married and had children. Seth and I began going to the same birthday parties, family gatherings, and summer vacations. However, we didn’t think much of each other until high school, when he started to see me other than his best friends little cousin. After five years of dating, it was so special to have all our close friends and family who saw our relationship progress throughout the years, see us choosing to spend the rest of our lives together at our ceremony. We both said we never felt more loved in that moment.

One of the big things I felt was important at our wedding was the florals. I am a florist myself and have been dreaming of my own wedding flowers for as long as my love for flowers began. Lyn from Flower Artistry created an enchanted garden of florals at our reception and the whimsical, earthy design exceeded my expectations. We wanted to bring the color and drama through with the flowers to still keep an elegant and simplistic feel. The circle of love she created was so beautiful and brought the whole reception together." - Bailey
