Ali and Ben tied the knot in Riding Mountain National Park a few weeks ago. They were surrounded by family and friends during their ceremony at the beautiful Wishing Well before settling in for a tent Reception, as the rain came down.

Here is a photo highlights slideshow from their day.

Last week I headed out to do an engagement session on a farm close to the sprawling metropolis of Poplar Point…

I was excited because I have never seen that part of Manitoba, but also because, Laura and Darren were super nervous for the session. They have never really had their photo taken and felt they were gonna somehow disappoint me , as they felt sure their photos would not be as good as the other couples they see on my blog or IG feed.

I sent them some comforting words, but did not for one second think I could not capture some photos that would - show who they are, show what it felt like being there, show them a new side of themselves they have never seen - but most importantly, build a connection with them to carry through into the wedding day.

I will not feel like a stranger on their wedding day because of this session… well, and also because I had wine with Laura’s amazing mother in their kitchen on the farm after the session. Once you wine together, you can dine together : )

I LOVE the photos! There are a few of my favourite ones.

Bonus win - I did not get Poison Ivy again…

PS - These farm fields belonged to Laura’s family and we did not damage them in any way. Please respect farmers and their fields, always ask permission and for goodness sake don’t wander in there if they just sprayed!!

What an amazing this wedding at Forth Cafe in Winnipeg turned out to be, despite it raining the entire day!

Yes, another rainy wedding. It seriously has been less than 5 shoots for me this year without rain, but as with my last post, this couple, their family and friends all just chilled and went with it. Being present, enjoying the day and each other.

The ceremony was held in Hermanos restaurant, after it had to be moved inside. The original plan was a “pop up” style ceremony in a park across the river, but the weather just did not want to play with. I was looking forward, as I am sure the couple was, to this informal circle style wedding, but the intimate nature of being in a small restaurant was perfect as well.

The reception was at Forth Cafe on McDermot and wow… just wow… There was an ice cream truck, amazing coffee, 2 bands, 3 different cocktail lounge areas, a clown for the kids, energetic dancing and even a food truck to end the night with.

I was exhausted when I got home, but just LOVE all the moments I was able to witness and capture. This couple also invited me to their Spiritual Ceremony, a few weeks before this wedding and I am moved from that experience to this day. I will do a separate post on that, as it deserves one.

Enjoy a few of my favourite moments from the day. A special shout out to the amazing Alli from Alli Mae Fresh Events for coordinating this day and pulling off an incredible multi location wedding event!!

Highlights from a wedding at the Wishing Well in Riding Mountain National Park, Manitoba.

Although it was raining the entire day, it did not damped the love, happiness nor the festivities in the tent later that night.

The day started at the Manor behind the Wishing Well, and as I was told, the Queen once stayed there on one of her visits to Canada. It really is an amazing “cabin” and the most perfect place for Ali and her friends to get ready for the wedding day.

Through the window I could see a bear playing on an old broken tree, the rain was coming down on the tent outside but nobody was standing looking outside wishing for something else. Everyone was present, happy and excited to be together.

Leah and I enjoyed witnessing a first look, taking the bridal party for photos in the town and then back for one of the most beautiful outdoor ceremonies I have ever seen. Everyone stood around the couple as they declared their love, made their promises and spread their infectious happiness all around.

The speeches were good, but the dancing even better. As usual the Father Daughter dance got me right in the feels.

I hope these highlights bring back the feelings of the day and can be a reminder of the amazing start to their marriage for many years to come.
