Double Wedding at Lake Eden Events & Lodging

Updated: Mar 4

So way back in May of this year (seriously time is flying you have no idea) we had the opportunity to be a part of one of the most unique and fun weddings we could have ever imagined. It was a double wedding and yes, it’s just as cool as it sounds! Carol and her sister Elise thought it would be fun to tie the knot together and that’s just what they did! After getting to meet these ladies we can see why. They were both so different in their own ways but at the same time you could tell these two were best friends! Elise’s fiancé Benedikt and Carol’s fiancé Cameron met through their mutual love of these ladies and though they each had their own bridal parties, there was a definite sense of oneness with everybody fully embracing in this special day! Their venue, Lake Eden Events, was the perfect setting to match the spirit of their celebration which was laid back and light hearted! I soon discovered Benedikt was an avid mountain bike racer like myself and we basically became best friends but I digress (lol).

For us one of the most exciting aspects of their special day was the approach! For sure some things about every wedding day are going to be consistent but having 4 separate bridal parties, 3 families, 2 brides and 2 grooms posed an interesting challenge of sorts because it was something we had never been a part of before. Sure we did some of the traditional shots of the Cameron with his groomsmen and Carol with her bridesmaids, but having the added element of being able to mix bridal parties, having two brides and grooms to pair up in unique ways for couples portraits made it just plain rad for wedding photography nerds like us! It was like all the fun we usually get to have x2! If all the laughs are any indication, this one rocked! We hope you enjoy following along as well!
