Anita + Jesse :: Trash and Trade (Part III of III)

Words by Maureen Young

Edmonton Wedding Photographers

Love, love, love how destination weddings = a day or two after for creatives with the newlyweds!  We had a blast with Anita + Jesse’s entourage (a.k.a members of the bridal party) as we went to Hard Rock Resort & Casino and the local market for days 1 & 2 of the creatives.  Our original plan for the market was put on hold by more thunderstorms but we found a luxe locale and spot of sunshine.

Lifeguards warned us off the beach as thunderstorms were, yet again, approaching.  Much to  Jesse’s dismay neither of us were prepared to dive in after him  so he couldn’t play in the crashing waves.  Sorry Jesse, Rina’s had just 1 too many instances of losing her shorts in calmer waters!

Day 2 we went to the local market with bodyguards Ray & Colin to keep the vendors at bay.  Anita got her groove on and danced in the streets, much to everyone’s delight as tourists and vendors who cheered from the stalls.  She also found a shawl in the same colour as the bridesmaids’ dresses and we all chipped in so she could have a souvenir of her Dominican wedding.

Anita bought her dress in China and never had any intention of taking it home with her, even though her mother-in-law was quite keen for her to have it for the Edmonton reception (although we all joked it was for Jesse’s sister Marianne to have for her wedding day).  Instead, Anita wanted her dress to give someone else’s love story a stylish flourish who otherwise may not be able to afford it.  A pregnant vendor asked Anita for the dress as she was hoping to get married after the baby was born.  Anita was super happy that her dress would give another girl the opportunity to have a beautiful wedding and traded the dress from some jewellery and a sundress (well she couldn’t exactly walk around nude!)

Edmonton Wedding Photographers

Thank you Anita + Jesse for having us out to your wonderful and crazy wedding.  Your friends and family were awesome and we got a chance to hang out with everyone, seeing some old pals and meeting some new friends. Your free spirited personalities go soooo well with us!

Loved your Edmonton reception as well!

Love. You. Always.
