This September, Ashley and Curtis shared their wedding vows during an intimate ceremony in front of family and friends at Truly Unique Country Weddings. These lucky folks are one of the last couples to be married at this fantastic venue. Truly Unique have now retired from the wedding business after many years of hard work and wonderful service. I'm sure TUCW is happy to end their career with such a fantastic couple!
Ashley and Curtis really are fantastic to work with. These two are so relaxed. It must be from all the fresh air they get, hiking and canoeing with their pup Jake. Jake the dog served as an honorary groomsman and he even walked down the aisle with Curtis. He is, after all, an important member of the family!
On this beautiful September morning, Ashley and the bridesmaids started their day at Blush Beauty Bar where the crew did a fantastic job applying makeup to these already beautiful ladies. We then headed over to Ashley's home for snacks, hair, and final touches. Ashley is a very creative lady, which I'm sure serves her well in her Esthetics career. On this special day, she put her creativity to use, preparing a stylish and tasty brunch of appetizers and a DIY mimosa bar. Ashley's gorgeous sense of style was also apparent at the reception that she decorated in her signature chic fashion.
While the girls prepared for the day, Curtis and the groomsmen had a relaxing morning getting ready at his groomsman's house. As typical of most wedding days, the guys had a lot more time to visit and relax before getting into their suits.
In the mid-afternoon, we gathered just outside Regina at Truly Unique Country Weddings. Under the warm afternoon sun, Curtis and Ashley shared their vows in a simple and heartfelt ceremony. Following the ceremony we explored the grounds of TUCW for formal photos. We made sure to include some photos of the couple's canoe to celebrate their passion for adventure and each other. All in all, it was a perfect wedding day. We had great weather, great locations, and an amazing bride and groom. Everyone was smiling as the afternoon turned to evening.
After formal photos, Ashley and Curtis invited their guest to join them for the reception in the tent where they shared a great meal, music, and lots of dancing. Congratulations Ashley and Curtis! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.
This June Tiffany and Daniel tied the knot in one of my favorite cities, Melville, SK. I could tell immediately that we were going to have a fun day. That morning I was greeted at Shear Concepts salon by a smiling bride and bridesmaids, all giddy with excitement. The anticipation of what's to come makes getting ready photos truly enjoyable to be a part of. After hair and make up, Tiffany and the girls got dressed at the home of Tiffany's mother. Daniel and his grooms men had a relaxing morning getting ready at the beautiful home Tiffany and Daniel share.
In the early afternoon Saint Henry's Catholic Church was brimming with family and friends to witness Tiffany and Daniel make their love official. The priest prepared a ceremony that had everyone smiling. We spent the rest of the afternoon taking formal photos around Melville. We made sure to stop in at the Waverley hotel, where Tiffany and Daniel met. Naturally the wedding party stopped for a quick refreshment before we headed to the Horizon Credit Union Center for the reception.
Congratulations Tiffany and Daniel. We wish you many years of happiness!
What's better than spending May long helping your friends celebrate their marriage? Not a whole heck of a lot, especially when those friends are Matt and Linda. These two had such a wonderful day. This is a perfect example of how “keeping it simple” will ensure you have a stress-free and gorgeous wedding day.
In the early afternoon, siblings and parents watched the happy couple exchange vows among the blooming gardens of the Regina Floral Conservatory. Following the delightful ceremony, we visited the Broken Rack for a pint and a “friendly” game of Foosball. After Linda won (or was it Matt who won?) we ventured over to the Mackenzie Art Gallery where we spent the better part of the afternoon chatting, laughing, and taking some gorgeous formal photos. Our last stop before the reception was the White Butte Trails, where Linda and Matt had their first date over 5 years ago!
The intimate reception was held at the White City Hall where family and friends were entertained by a short program from MCs, Tyler and Steve- who had the guests battle in the “Hunger Games” to earn their place at the buffet line. After the supper, guests played board games, laughed, danced, and had a great time celebrating the love of two fantastic people. In addition to being awesome friends and clients, I must also award them 1000 points for their Totoro cake topper! If you are a Miyazaki fan too, I'm sure you will feel just as tickled by their nod to the amazing Director/Animator as I was.
Congratulations Linda and Matt. We wish you all the happiness in the world :)
