Olivia & Kelly's Wedding at Camp Chief Hector, Exshaw, Alberta

Updated: Mar 21

This was probably the most emotional I've been at a wedding! Olivia and Kelly's rainy day wedding at Camp Chief Hector had everyone reaching for the tissues. Despite the grey skies and rain, the couple embraced the weather, and celebrated each other in the most beautiful, sincere, and heartfelt ceremony. Olivia and Kelly chose this warm, inviting venue as camp held a special place in both of their lives. Hearing stories shared by close friends and family truly highlighted how loved these two are. Forever grateful that we were able to witness such a beautiful day.

Kind words from the newlyweds:

"Once you’ve given Mel the vision for your wedding, she and her team handle the details so you can truly be present and enjoy your special day. Not only is she inclusive of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, but she is also sensitive to any tricky dynamics amongst guests. 11/10, highly recommend! We hired Melissa Alison Events as our day-of coordinator and began touching base about 6 to 8 weeks prior to our wedding day. We were amazed at how quickly Mel solved problems we had been grappling with for the entire wedding planning process. More importantly, she solved problems on our wedding day that we could never have anticipated. For example, when the only path from where we were getting ready to the ceremony ended up flooded and muddy, Mel arranged for vehicles to transport the wedding party so our clothes, shoes, and makeup didn’t get ruined. Mel was truly like our guardian angel in the lead up to our wedding, and we strongly recommend hiring her as your wedding planner. We’re so grateful we got to work with her!" - Kelly and Olivia
