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.
