Wedding

Erin + Phil

I honestly don’t think I’ve laughed more at a wedding. Erin + Phil are such a fun and hilarious couple, which I got to see during our consults and engagement session. What became abundantly clear at their wedding was where they got that from. Both their families and their friends had us laughing the whole day. Their July wedding ceremony and reception was held at Lower Fort Garry. These two showed perfectly that you can do a first look, hang out with your spouse all day and it doesn’t take away that emotion when you walk down the aisle. I have had such a blast with these two since the moment we met and I hope our paths cross again soon.

Ashley + JP

Ashley + JP knew that forever was in their future not too long after meeting each other. These two are such a goofy, playful and loving couple, and you can tell they just enjoy always making the other laugh. Ashley + JP had a July wedding at the Niverville Heritage Centre with their closest friends and family present. We stopped by the table at Hesplers Lounge where they had their first date, and were we also visited during their engagement session. They wanted all of their photos done on the grounds to maximize their time with all their loved ones present. That beautiful staircase and all the gorgeous cafe lighting made such a stunning atmosphere. I am so happy for these two and throughly enjoyed my time at their wedding.

Izabela + Evan Married

Izabela + Evan got married in the church that Izabela grew up going to, on a beautiful Saturday in June. The girls all got ready at Izabela’s parents house, and the boys at Evan’s parent’s house. They saw each other for the first time walking down the aisle, a moment they shared with all their closest friends, family, and their two adorable little kids. After the ceremony we ventured around the Forks for pictures, of course stopping at my favourite restaurant, Smith, where Evan’s brother is a chef. The reception was held just outside of Winnipeg, on Evan’s sister’s beautiful property, in a gorgeous clear tent. This day couldn’t have been any more perfect, and many tears were shed through the night as everyone was so overjoyed for this couple that finally got to tie the knot after having life events post pone their wedding for a year. I couldn’t be happier for this amazing couple and hope I get to see their little family again soon.

Chantal + Chris Married

Chantal + Chris’ late September wedding was my last wedding of 2018. This beautiful intimate ceremony in Henteleff Park, followed by a dinner at 529 Wellington was the perfect way to end off my wedding season. They then generously put on a get together with all their close friends and family at their house, with the most amazing “cheese cake” I’ve ever seen.

Brooklyn + Derek

Brooklyn + Derek were married on a gorgeous Saturday in August. They had their first look at St. Vital park, and from that moment until the end of the day, these two could not keep their eyes or hands off of each other. They are such a cute, fun and in love couple that they are such a joy to photograph! After the ceremony everyone headed out to Quarry Oaks for the reception. During cocktail hour the whole wedding party hopped into golf carts and we drove around taking photos all over the grounds. We had such a blast that we stayed out until we absolutely had to get back in time for their entrance. The rest of the evening was filled with great food, laughs, love and probably the liveliest dance floor I have ever seen!

Fiona + Daulton Married

I believe my last post ended off with asking for more backyard weddings…well conveniently my next wedding was another backyard wedding! This beautiful property was filled with stunning trees and large fields, the perfect place for Fiona + Daulton to tie the knot. From the breathtaking handmade backdrop, the mason jars hanging in trees, the amazing food, cotton candy sunset, great conversation and all the love in the air, it was a fantastic day. Enjoy <3

Katherine + Shay Married

Katherine + Shay were married in the beginning of August at Katherine’s parents’ Charleswood home. The girls started the day getting ready at the home and then the limo picked us up to meet the boys at Assiniboine Forest for the first look and some wedding party pictures. We then went downtown for some pictures before heading back to the Charleswood home for an intimate backyard wedding. Luckily mother nature cooperated for most of the day, and waited until just after speeches to start raining. I loved all the happy vibes, tears and intimate nature of the day. Give me all the backyard weddings please!!!

Sam + Tyler Married

Well apparently it’s been about half a year since I’ve blogged a session…So I thought I’d start 2019 off right by blogging this gorgeous July wedding. Sam + Tyler met back in high school (where they took me back to on there wedding day for some pictures) and started their love story shortly after. They had a beautiful ceremony at St Charles Parish and reception at St Charles Country Club. These two were all smiles all day which made for a great time. They are such a lovely, caring and thoughtful couple, I could not be more honoured to have been a part of their day. Also, they probably had some of the most entertaining wedding speeches I’ve heard…especially from the bride’s brother… the bride’s reaction to be seen near the end of the gallery ;) Enjoy

Shelby + Christien

When you plan your Manitoba wedding, you probably don't assume it's going to be 47 degrees for it...well, that's just what Christien + Shelby got. I was so impressed on how adaptable these two were for the day. They were so concerned about everyone's comfort that they encouraged everyone to ditch their formal wear, hop in the lake and change into something more comfortable. Their adorable son Levi, rocked the diaper only look, while top knots and Hawaiian shirts were worn by the rest of the guests. Everyone had an absolute blast, and the dance floor was packed come sunset. We decided to do a portrait session a week later for these two on a "cool" 33 degree day...and a big shout out to the mother of the bride who kept these florals alive and looking well for a week during a heat wave!!! We had a good run going of almost weekly photo shoots there for a bit, but now that the festivities are all wrapped up I have to say, I'm gonna miss this lovely family.

Emily + Jan Married

Emily and Jan's wedding day started off less than ideal, when somehow their venue forgot about their wedding! Only a few hours before the ceremony was scheduled to start, friends, family, the wedding party, and neighbours put together (which was coined the "pop up wedding" by the end of the day) a beautiful wedding at Emily's brother's house. It must have been fate, as Emily's brother's neighbour is an event planner and used all her available resources to get what was needed for this wedding. As stressful as it was for the couple, it was pretty amazing to see a whole community of people show up for them like that. I knew these two were something special, and this was confirmed by seeing how much love and support came through that day for them. I was so happy and honoured to get to capture this day for Emily + Jan as they start their amazing journey together. Congrats you two!
