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 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 July I had the pleasure of photographing Amanda and Boyd's wedding in Melville, SK. I went to elementary and high school with Boyd and some members of the wedding party. That certainly made the day a lot of fun. Our 10 year highschool reunion was this year and I was unable to attend becuase I was shooting a wedding, so it was nice to have the opportunity to see some friends I had not seen in a very long time.
Boyd and Amanda had a perfect wedding day. We were lucky enough to have slightly overcast weather the whole day which makes for great picture taking. The day started at Danello Beauty Centre where Amanda and the bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done. The ceremony was held at the All Saints Anglican Church.
For formal photos we headed to Boyd's family's farm. The red barn in his grandmother's yard was an awesome backdrop for this country chic themed wedding (I loved girls cowboy boots, they looked so cute contrasted with the formal dresses!). For the remainder of the formal photos we travelled back to town to the old Co-op creamery. The reception was held at the brand new rec centre on 1st Ave.
