On a pleasant day in June, Lacey and Nick said their vows at the Westminster church in front of their closest friends and family. We had a great afternoon taking photos around Wascana Lake and finished off our afternoon on top of Douglas Park Hill, one of Lacey's favorite spots in the city. Although we needed to use our umbrellas at our first location, the rain seemed to hold up until we were ready to head to the Conexus Art Center for dinner and reception. Thanks, mother nature!

Congratulations Lacey and Nick. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

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.

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!
