Lloyd & Sarah married! Part 2

See part 1 –> here!

Lloyd & Sarah had their ceremony at Assiniboine Park. The thunder threatened and raindrops started but that didn’t stop them from saying their “I do’s” in front of close friends and family! How can you not love a barefoot bride in the park?

Enjoy this lengthy post!

After the rain cleared up we were able to head back outside for some more pictures in the lush greens of the park!

Lloyd & Sarah’s wedding was recently featured in Wedding Bells! In print and on their website!

Here is an excerpt from the feature:

For their wedding day, Sarah and Lloyd wanted their day to be mellow but still elegant. Their venue was comprised of big bright windows overlooking a park and duck pond. The couple was so mesmerized by the beautiful surroundings that they chose neutral colours to complement the venue.  “We incorporated a fun chevron pattern in grey and white in our table runners and stationery,” Sarah explains. “We thought it would keep things from looking too monochromatic. We added some pops of mint in our bridesmaids’ dresses, stationery and table décor for a touch of colour too.”

Just a few highlights of the reception; Thom Bargen served lattes, the couple’s first dance to the groom’s brother Randy playing on his guitar, line dancing and just hanging out with great friends.

All the best Lloyd & Sarah!!!

Lloyd & Sarah married! Part 1

Lloyd & Sarah got married on a warm July afternoon. Rain showers and thunderstorms threatened all day, but despite all that we had an amazing day! It was made extra special by the fact that Lloyd is my cousin and I basically grew up with his family!

You can check out their engagement session –> here!

I struggled with a lot of raw emotions on this particular day. It had only been a week since my dear mother suffered from an aneurysm and she was still fighting for her life. It was painful to see life going on but also a happy distraction to see joy and hope after spending a week in the hospital! But enough about me, lets focus on Lloyd & Sarah!

As usual, I arrived at the bride’s place for prep pictures and Mark headed out to be with the boys! I’ll let the pictures tell their story!

One of the highlights of the day was Sarah’s dad driving her and the bridesmaids to the ceremony in his amazing mint Cadillac! Bonus; it completely matched her colour scheme!

Check back soon, I’ll be posting Part 2 in the near future! Including the rainy ceremony and beautiful reception!

Ryan & Sheena and Baeya!

Sheena has been in front of my camera for many years now; from engagement to wedding to maternity and now a growing family! It’s always a treat to capture her beautiful family.

Last summer we met at the beach for some playing and marshmallow roasting! These images make me long for summer evenings… sigh.

Also if you are in town and looking for an amazing make up artist or hair stylist, Sheena is your girl! –> Foil

Thanks Sheena & Ryan! Looking forward to next time…!

xoxo

Ronnie & Robyn engaged!

Say hello to Robyn & Ronnie! The sweetest couple ever!

Robyn spent months planning for this engagement session! She loves gardening and succulents and all the pretty little details! The original plan was to shoot in her parents’ garden but alas a rainy end to summer left us in mud up to our calves. So they set up on the lawn instead. Which was still very pretty! And the light that evening was magical! Sit back and enjoy all the hard work Robyn put into this pretty little session!

We then headed down the road to the farm Robyn’s mom grew up on!

The evening ended with a spectacular sunset!!

If this is their engagement session, I can’t wait to see the wedding this July!

(ps. the gorgeous quilt seen in these pictures was handmade by my talented niece Rachelle with up-cycled vintage sheets and pillowcases! Interested in buying your own up-cycled quilt? Contact her mom –> here!)

xoxo
