Popping in to say “hi”

Connor & Jewel married! Part 2

Finally, part 2! If you haven’t seen the first part of Jewel & Connor’s beautiful wedding, check it out –> here!

Their reception was held inside the barn loft! A very rustic setting with chandeliers and mini lights setting off that romantic atmosphere! Most of the decor was DIY except for some of the gorgeous centre pieces by Academy Florists! A beautiful and delicious table of cheese cakes made by family was on display as you came up the stairs! Also a rustic table with all the ingredients for trail mix as a favour for the guests! Since Jewel & Connor are really into tacos, they scored Winnipeg for the best tacos for months before the wedding! In the end, they fell in love with authentic tacos from BMC Market on Osborne! So tacos were served family style by BMC! Yum!

After lots of laughs and tears during speeches and first dances, a friend of the couple guided the guests through some basic line dancing lessons! A “boot scootin’ boogie” time was had by all!

The evening ended in the big Canada vs USA send off! Lining the barn, waving flags the Canadians belted out “Oh Canada”! Followed by the Americans chanting “U S A, U S A!”

It was an honour to shoot your beautiful day Connor & Jewel! And welcome to the family Connor!!!

Connor & Jewel married! Part 1

Let me take you back to a beautiful day last summer! It was the wedding day of my niece Jewel to her beloved, Connor from Texas!

Remember his surprise proposal to her last spring? See it here for a little history on these 2 lovebirds –> Jewel & Connor engaged! <–

Well after that surprise, it was a whirlwind couple of months where they decided to get married that same year in August! My mom (Jewel’s grandma) suffered from a massive aneurysm two weeks before the wedding. This added a lot of stress and sadness to the planning process. Knowing her grandma wouldn’t be able to attend the wedding and not even knowing if she’d pull through was really tough. But we went ahead with the planning and despite all the raw emotions and tears there was joy and happiness! As per usual, I’ll let the pictures show you how Jewel & Connor’s hopes and dreams came to life. Starting with Jewel and all her bridesmaids getting ready at her parents’ home!

While Mark covered the boys getting ready, I took the girls out for a little pre wedding photo session!

Just a little shout out to Tessa and Heather from Academy Florists who went out of their way to fit Jewel into their tight schedule and come up with these amazing, amazing bouquets! Jewel basically gave them free range and they did not disappoint!!

Moving on to the outdoor ceremony which took place at the beautiful Rustic Wedding Barn in Steinbach!

After exchanging their vows, Connor scooped Jewel up into his arms and carried her down the aisle! Immediately surrounded by family and friends and lots of hugs and tears of joy!

I’ll be posting part 2 soon!
