Securing your wedding venue is usually one of the first major wedding planning decisions (besides your budget!) that a newly engaged couple will make. Location, cost, style and servicesshould be at the top of mind when starting your dream wedding venue search. As a wedding photographer love Trestle’s Edge because it ticks off so many of the boxes I would look for in my own wedding venue. It’s what I call an “all in one venue,” meaning your entire wedding day can take place at one location. That’s easy peasy for everyone involved!

Number of years in business?


What’s your story? How did your venue start?

Our story began like any good romantic comedy… with an optimistic 27-dresses-always-a-bridesmaid wedding enthusiast stumbling on the opportunity to purchase a picturesque piece of land that has long been a best-kept secret for stunning wedding photography.

Transforming the gorgeous property into a wedding venue was a no-brainer. And thankfully, despite facing the usual twists and turns that come with bringing a wedding venue to life, this story has a happy ending…well, more like a happily ever after. In fact, there’s a happily ever after waiting for you too!

What are your top predicted wedding trends for 2021?

Outdoor weddings! All the twinkle and patio lights, simple touches on the tables; table top details which allow for couples to personalize and become statement decor.

Who are your dream clients to work with?

We love couples that come in with a vision but are always open to our suggestions. An organized bride is also very helpful!

Hi, my name is Janelle, I’m a photographer from Edmonton Alberta. I’m all about three things: celebration, connection and client education. My style is relaxed and romantic. I love intimate weddings, the kind where I get to know your family and friends. I thrive when meeting new people. My favourite moment of every wedding is right after the ceremony. This is when your friends and family smother or possibly crush you with either love or cheerful embrace. Bring on the epic dance parties.

  I value connection and celebration of moments over a big production.
