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 :)
In January of 2015, I started a 52 Week Photo Challenge. It was meant to be a playful way to document a very pivotal year in my life. I think it's really cool to see everything laid out this way. This was definitely the hardest year of my life with my dad passing in September, but I'm very glad I did this project because it reminds me of all the awesome people in my life who's love and support has helped me through it all.
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 summer Kiersten and Jose were blessed with a new baby boy, Mateo. He is such a cutie. I can't believe how much hair he has! Congratulations Kiersten and Jose!
