Whitetail Meadow Winnipeg Wedding Venue | Open House

Whitetail Meadow Winnipeg Wedding Venue

I had the pleasure of attending and photographing the very first Whitetail Meadow Wedding Gala, a few weeks back. I really love this venue, and it was very clear from the turn out and other vendors exhibiting, that I am not the only one feeling so.

Banff wedding photography | Meghan + Rob

I must confess...

I had the most amazing time with this wedding. It was my first wedding in Canada where I actually knew the couple as friends. Meghan, grew up with Leah's sister in good old Morden, MB. We were all in Taiwan together.  If you went on adventures in Taiwan together - you've clocked some time.

I enjoyed shooting the wedding, and although I was paid as a professional, I felt like a friend the entire time.  A more behind the scenes kinda feel to the day. 

We had crazy weather. Rain for the morning, cold setting in, then snow to end it.  

For me, having everything hyper focused, it was beautiful to see the love and respect between Rob and Meghan, their friends and family.  What touched me, was the dedication from one of Meghan's Bridesmaids.  Who has liver cancer, received chemo during the day, missioned up the side of mountain paths, but would not miss this celebration.  Meghan and Rob bring this out in the people surrounding them - you can't not want to love them.

Secondly, Canmore, Banff - the mountains. Oh the mountains. When Leah told me way back when that she was from Canada, in my head I saw the Rockies.  Who knew there was not a single bump in Manitoba... 

So, I am making plans to shoot more out there. It is stunning! 

I am really happy with the photos and hope you enjoy some of my favourites from the day.

Elena + Mark's wedding at the Hotel Fort Garry

Ever since I had my Connection Session with Elena and Mark, I knew their wedding day would be special.  They are such gentle souls, so kind to each other. So perfect.

Mark,  just smiles, shrugs and sneaks a glance to make sure Elena approves. He opens the door for her, she looks at him with respect, gratitude and sincere love.  I know - sappy, but that stuff still exists in today's day and age - and it's beautiful. I don't care what people say!

Leah and I had a great day with their friends and family and we managed to avoid the rain. Well, just about.  Here are some of my favourite frames.
