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.

Some of Winnipeg’s best Wedding Vendors, had their goods and services on display and the day ended with a lovely Fashion Show. Here are a few photos to show the venue, vendors as well as a little look see of what the Fashion Show was about.

Moody Winnipeg Wedding Inspiration with Regal Undertones

Old World Elegance Wedding Photography & Styling Inspiration

The Millennium Centre is in the heart of the Exchange District in downtown Winnipeg, Canada and one of the most popular wedding venues.

The building is primarily abandoned today, and has the feeling of forgotten grandeur. Peeling plaster has taken on the appearance of beautifully marbled walls, and a forgotten fireplace served as a wonderful backdrop for our table. This aging beauty set the tone for our moody and upscale shoot.

Winnipeg Wedding Photographer veil Boudoir

It was important for us to have the photos illuminate the sensual confidence of our bride, as well as her glowing gracefulness. The dress by Anna Lang was chosen for its flow and movement as much as for the rich earth tones.

You don’t have to be in white on your wedding day – you just have to select a dress that makes you feel beautiful and confident.

We layered the table with classic pieces, adding dark, edgy tones for a modern touch. Don’t be afraid to mix it up!

Calligraphy is such a beautiful way to add romance to your table, and can be used for table numbers, escort cards, or menus. Here we used it to add just the perfect pop of gold.

The elegantly marbled cake design shows that your wedding cake doesn’t need to be overly elaborate to make a huge impact.

The rich color palette was completed with the touches of antique oranges and pinks against the deep purples of the flowers.

The tones selected make this palette perfect for all seasons. With Ultra Violet being the Pantone color of the year, purple tones are everywhere, so we were very happy to be able to share how easily it can be incorporated into your wedding planning.

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!!

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.

Please enjoy their highlights slideshow and a few of my favourite frames from the day. The full link to their entire gallery at the end of the page.

Crystal City, Manitoba | Lori + Spencer wedding

It was one of the hottest day's this summer and we spent it in the Pembina Valley, on dirt roads, in a non AC church and thunderstorm enveloped reception hall.

It was perfect!
