Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the Wishing Well in
Riding Mountain National Park

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.

Family and Friends are invited to click here to view all their photos from the day

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.


A Winter wedding at La Lune Wedding Venue in Winnipeg

La Lune Wedding in Winnipeg

Well, the plan was to have an outdoor La Lune Wedding, but mother nature had other plans and in the end, it turned out to be the best plan. We should just open our hearts and go with whatever the day brings you.

The rain turned to snow, the laughter to tears, the tears to smiles, the sitting to dancing and the day into night. It was perfect in every way.

Congratulations Meagan and Jarod. You had an amazing wedding, and I loved being there and capturing it all!

It feels good to be back home with Leah and the kids, but I did not plan on returning from tropical paradise to more snow…

The wedding in Cuba was amazing, and the heat… oh man… the heat and humidity was glorious!! Beach weddings are my favourite. I feel right in my element. I look forward to sharing more previews and the full blog feature in the coming week.
