I was really impressed by a lot of things, starting with the friendly, kind and super helpful owner, Dave, that greeted me on arrival and had all the time in the world to show me around.
The overall impression of the venue was one of country luxury, with an intimate charm. Perfect for small gatherings or larger parties.
The outdoor ceremony location (there are a few options) was also amazing. On the one side you had the stunning restored Barn and on the other a tranquil pond with trees swaying in the breeze. One felt surrounded by nature, without having to walk deep into the woods.
I also loved that the bride has a little cabin, on the property, where she can do all her getting ready and even stay over for the night before or the night of the wedding. No stress of running from place to place the morning of the wedding.
As a photographer, there is also no shortage of backdrops and interesting elements to incorporate in the photos. We did not even have to leave the venue to create amazing Bride and Groom photos. I also did the formal family photos, close to the trees with the beautiful pond in the foreground.
Here are a few photos to show you how I experienced this amazing venue, and if you were still looking for a wedding venue in and around Winnipeg - I would highly recommend Whitetail Meadow!
