Whitetail Meadow | A Winnipeg Wedding Venue Review

Whitetail Meadow Wedding Venue

I had the great privilege of photographing a couple of weddings at the new, Whitetail Meadow Wedding Venue, just outside of Winnipeg.

As a full time, professional photographer for the last 10 years, it is always exciting when new venues open their doors, especially when it brings something new to the wedding venue scene.

From the Whitetail Meadow Website

“Several years ago, Dave had a vision for a salvaged 80-year-old hip-roof barn and a stunning riverside acreage.  With the help and support of his wife Lori, that vision is now a reality.  Whitetail Meadow. 

Dave and Lori worked tirelessly to restore the building and beautify the grounds to make it a one-of-a-kind wedding and events venue nestled in the Red River valley. “

It is a rustic yet modern wedding and events building.  Original barnwood elements and rough-cut timbers juxtapose the clean, bright walls and ceilings and state-of-the art amenities for a perfect marriage of old and new.

Whitetail Meadow Venue Features:

- Seating for 300-320 guests (Depending on table configuration)
- Fully-Equipped catering kitchen
- Bar area with coolers & ice machine
- Projectors and P.A. Equipment

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!

Have you ever wondered what a Wedding Photographer really thinks about your big day?

Thoughts about a very stormy California wedding

Tony shares his thoughts on an unforgettable, intimate wedding, he documented in California. You won't believe what happened and will be amazed at how the couple just rolled with it. These moments and photos truly are once in a lifetime!

Qualico Family Centre Wedding | Lesya + Kellen

Qualico Family Centre Wedding

One of our favourite times of the year is when we get to do a Qualico Family Centre wedding in Winnipeg IN THE WINTER!

Lesya and Kellen had an amazing wedding with a full traditional wedding ceremony and a very elegant reception with close family and friends. It was a cold day, make no mistake, but that all seemed to fade to to the background with the laughter, emotion and general and genuine feel good vibes.

These are a few of my favourite moments and one photo in particular means a lot to me as a documentarian on people's lives and stories. It's the photo of Lesya holding an original print from her parent's wedding day.

As we learn, as we grow and we win and as we lose - the moments change and the things that remind us of those moments change and one thing that is for sure, is that a photo of a precious moment only grows in value over time.

It was a great honour for Leah and myself to be invited to capture these moments for Lesya and Kellen and can only wish them well and many happy and fond memories as they look back at these photos over the course of their lives. I sincerely hope I am still connected to them, one day, when their kids can have a photos of this day, at their wedding as well.

Congratulations guys. We love you!!

Autumn colours, Prairie Skies and a Hawthorn Estates Wedding. What could be more perfect?

This amazing wedding at one of the most popular venues in Manitoba, was the epitome of what a Fall wedding should look like.

Carrie and Corey put together an incredible celebration, and I couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of it.

What a great pleasure it was to photograph another stunning Hotel Fort Garry Wedding in Winnipeg. This time, Leah and I had the pleasure of spending the day with Carmen, Kevin and their group of lovely family and friends.

We had a magical first look in Assiniboine Forest, before heading to the most elegant wedding ceremony and reception, designed and coordinated by the team at Soiree Weddings & Events.

I can’t be happier with the way the film turned out and wish this beautiful couple nothing but the most amazing adventures, love and laughter on the rest of their journey.
