On a cloudy Saturday in August, Larissa and Brandon said their 'I Do's' at the Central Lutheran Church in Moose Jaw. The beautiful and quaint church was full to the brim with friends and family, making for an atmosphere buzzing with excitement and happiness.
Leading up to the ceremony, Larissa and the bridal party had their hair and makeup done at the Shear Escapes Salon in Regina. We then headed to Moose Jaw to get in dresses and do all the finishing touches. The guys had a mostly relaxing morning as they took their time getting ready at the hotel; although they did discover there is definitely skill involved in properly tying a bow tie. It didn't take long to master with the help of a You Tube tutorial video.
The weather cleared up just in time for formal photos at Wakamow Park followed by a reception at the Heritage Inn. Congratulations Larissa and Brandon! We hope you had as much fun as we did!
This August Nicole and Patrick had a gorgeous wedding in Regina. Although Nicole and Patrick have since moved away from the city, they have gather here again to celebrate their love while surrounded by family and friends. The day started off at the Hotel Saskatchewan where Nicole and her bridesmaids had their hair styled. Makeup was applied by Sara Lindsay at her renowned makeup studio on Hill Avenue. The girls returned to the hotel to get dressed and finish designing their own bouquets. Patrick and his groomsmen spent the morning at Patrick's parents' house, relaxing and getting dressed.
At the Knox Metropolitan Church both Patrick and Nicole beamed with joyful anticipation as they saw each other for the first time that day. After their ceremony we headed out for formal photos at Darke Hall and then to a scrap metal yard. We returned to the Hotel Sask for the reception which was full of great food and heat felt speeches. Congratulations Nicole and Patrick! Hope you had as much fun as we did!
This August we spent a lovely Saturday afternoon in Yorkton photographing Alexandra and Steve's wedding on the Benko family farm. Ward and I both really enjoy shooting Yorkton weddings as they are always a lot of fun. Alex and Steve's heartwarming ceremony was held in front of a beautiful wall that Steven made using re-purposed wood from an old corral. It turned out great and looked beautiful in the pictures! After the ceremony, we continued to Alex and Steve's farm just a few Kilometers away. We spent the afternoon taking photos in their gorgeous yard. It was really a goldmine for photos- barns, bins, wheat fields, and helpful neighbors who were more than happy to bring everyone refreshments and borrow us their rifles from some “authentic” farm life photos. I think it's safe to say that everyone had a ton of fun while the afternoon flew by. As the sun began to set, we headed back to Yorkton for the reception at St. Gerald's Hall. I hope you guys had as much fun as we did. Congratulations Alex and Steve!
In early August Jenn and Nick made their love official in front of family and friends at the Christ Lutheran Church in Regina, SK. I had a feeling we were going to have a fantastic day and I was right. I was told on several occasions that Jenn and Nick are the "nicest people you will ever meet". It wasn't an exaggeration. These guys were all smiles all the time. Their positive and kind nature has surrounded them with a clan of fantastic people which pretty much makes it impossible to have a bad time in their presence.
The girls started their day at Shear Escape Salon while the guys relaxed and got ready at Jenn and Nick's home. Jenn got into her beautiful wedding dress with the help of her mother and brides maids at her parents home. The ceremony that followed at Christ Lutheran was touching and sweet. Jenn and Nick requested a shot of the entire wedding party and all of their guests. We managed to get this shot with the help of a wide angle lens and my awesome husband/assistant Ward hanging out in the balcony so everyone could look up at him for the photo. We don't normally do photos like this but I'm glad we did. It was fun and the result was really cool!
We took formal photos in the beautiful Government House court yard as well as the Marina in Wascana. The day ended with a reception at St. Mary's Hall on Winnipeg Street. Congratulations Jenn and Nick. I'm sure you will have a lifetime of happiness!
On August 16, 2014, Megan and Stephen tied the knot. It was grey and rainy while Megan had her makeup done at Blush Beauty Bar. The skies finally started to clear by mid afternoon, just in time for a beautiful ceremony at Kiwanis Park. After some family photos we headed to Wascana Park and Darke Hall for formal photos. The fun continued at the reception which was held at the Italian Club. Congratulations Megan and Stephen!
