When I think about this couple and their wedding day, I am filled with gratitude and warm nostalgia — these two are a match made in heaven (literally), and I feel blessed to know them, let alone to have participated in their festive and beautiful wedding day. Amy and Clint are amazing people, and have surrounded themselves with amazing people… plus, they share a beautiful faith and made their love for God a central part of their day…. so you can imagine that the day of celebrating was a great one: worshipful, peaceful, fun (and so on).
Wish I could post more pics, but with my wee baby squirming about and only giving me moments here and there to post blogs, this sneak-peek is shorter than I’d like (and does not represent the # of pics I love from this day!). Still, you’ll hopefully get a little taste of things.
Amy and Clinton, lots more pics to come!
In the meantime, enjoy the sneak-peek.
Shannon and Michael could not have had a more glorious September Saturday for their wedding day! The wedding day began in Winnipeg, where I got to photograph the bride and the groom each getting ready… and the we moved on to the ceremony, which took place in a gorgeous church building. I was under the weather that day – not to mention getting larger and more awkward with pregnancy – so my dear, sweet husband joined me (and escorted me from place to place – awww), and we enjoyed a scenic drive out to Gimli together where the remainder of the wedding took place.
Michael’s family has a cottage along Winnipeg Beach, so we spent quite a bit of time there photographing Michael, Shannon, and their wedding party. There were so many fantastic photo sites in that vicinity. I can’t decide if I like the pier or the bridge location better. What do you think?
After a fun photog. whirlwind we headed to the reception in Gimli – which was decorated oh-so-beautifully!! I think Shannon and friends must have slaved over the awesome DIY details for ages! I really loved the warm, organic feel to her decor. She used nice purples, oranges and earth tones, and brought in interesting textured items like burlap, lace, wood, wheat…. very cool! You all may have guessed this already, but I LOVE prairie grasses and birds…. and Shannon and Michael’s wedding featured both!
Thanks, you two, for making Marcus and me a part of your big day. You’re amazing people, a great couple, and we wish you every blessing in your marriage!
I just love this couple. They are some of the nicest, funnest (yes, I know that’s not a legit word), easiest-to-be-around people ever. I had such a great time photographing them and their lovely wedding party (thanks guys!).
Ronda and Marty’s wedding felt like a real celebration of their deep love for each other, and we shared so many laughs during the day. Seriously, we laughed a lot. Besides this, I was nigh-giddy about the fabulous fall DIY touches they pulled together. What a ton of work that must have been! I had to dedicate a huge section of this post just to reception details, and even that photo collection is not exhaustive. Their whole theme – from attire and hair, to decor and food – combined warmth and colour with class.
A few decor/aesthetic highlights: Ronda’s dress. Sparkle-covered pumpkins, and birch logs for votive holders. The use of teal! Leo Mol garden for ceremony and Qualico Family Centre for reception (those two spots are a photographer’s dream).
Sigh… what a great day.
Wonderful job, you two! And most importantly, HUGE congrats on your new marriage, to which your wedding day was a beautiful and fitting beginning!
I had such a good day with these two love birds – and their wonderful wedding party! Melissa and Scott are both kind, thoughtful, excellent people… their wedding day was a great celebration of their love for each other. Icing on the cake: they have GREAT style sense and planned out their day beautifully, putting care into details big and small. They thought of everything (!) – fun props, including a sweet “thank you” bunting; a beautiful vintage car to complement their theme; and countless other clever touches that added to the great feel of their day.
It was a privilege to be part of your big day, Melissa and Scott. Enjoy the sneak-peek of your photographs (lots more where these came from)!
Here it is, folks! Part 2 of 2. Here you will witness more moments with the lovely couple, AND…. catch a glimpse of the amazing DIY details at the reception.
(If you haven’t seen Part 1 already, it can been seen HERE.)
Shoot, I’ve done it again! I could NOT narrow down my blog-photo-choices enough and made a big job for myself, putting together not one, but TWO sneak-peeks for this wedding. Seriously, though, Skylor and Sigrid were so great to work with, and so creative, and so in love…. and although I was exhausted after photographing four weddings over 2 consecutive weekends, I have to admit that I had a really wonderful time with these two (and their awesome people: wedding party/family/guests).
I’m so excited about their pics!!!! You are not going to believe the level of DIY creative-excellence exhibited by these two!
But lest I make it sound like the photos or the creativity are the most important thing here, let me say this: they are meant as the icing on an already substantial and amazing cake: a WEDDING. I am honoured that I got to be part of such a profound and sacred event in their lives!!! Congrats you guys! Every blessing on your marriage:)
And…… enjoy the sneak peek.
P.S. One of the groomsmen is my little brother. He’s looking rather dapper in his orange and blue striped tie. Can you spot him?
****Stay tuned for PART 2 – coming your way sometime early next week!!
I have known Reyna for several years now – Marcus and I are friends with her family. I’ve always found her to be an utter delight! So the opportunity to photograph this beautiful girl and her awesome now-husband Jesse on their wedding day was a happy one for me. These two are SO GREAT TOGETHER: a match made in heaven. What a blessing to be a part of such a rich and meaningful (and fun!) occasion.
All the very best to you both, Reyna and Jesse. Love to you both!
p.s. Enjoy the sneak-peek!!
I am endeavoring to get these “sneak peek” wedding posts up sooner than I typically have…. we’ll see how I do over the next few busy weeks, but this post represents at least one successful attempt! Last weekend Marcus and I had TWO great weddings – one he second-shot at, and one he assisted me hugely with (I also have 2 again this weekend, but that’s another story)…
Ari and Julie’s was the first wedding of the weekend and happened way out in Clear Lake, Manitoba: WHAT A LOVELY PLACE! The scenery was a perfect complement to these very-lovely people. Ari and Julie are warm and kind and thoughtful, and their love for each other is genuine and deep. What a blessing to have a window into relationships like theirs. And what a blessing to be able to capture all that goodness alongside my OWN hubby and best friend, Marcus.
I know I know, I’m being a bit sappy. Can’t help it. I’m a feeler.
Aaanyway, here’s a wee “sneak-peek,” Ari and Julie. Enjoy! Lots more photos where these came from:)
p.s. This was one of the most gorgeous ceremony spots I’ve ever seen, honestly. And check out the amazing, rustic “wedding arch” they constructed. I think it’s just so beautiful. Isn’t it? Wow.
Today is a busy day on the Blue Bird Creative blog!!! Here it is, folks, part 2 of Caroline and Harmon’s sneak peek post:) Woohoo!
p.s. I am SO EXCITED about the pictures from the wheat (?) field. Sigh. I love epic settings on epic days (weddings!).
Okay okay, I couldn’t help myself…. I couldn’t very well cover the whole first part of the day and then leave you hanging about the beeeeautiful ceremony and reception and the amazing creative details Zach/Julie/friends put together for their big day! So here’s part 2 of Zach and Julie’s wedding post.
(If only a blog post could totally capture just how lovely and meaningful the ceremony was… and how touching the reception speeches were…. and how the whole day was just FULL of goodness/kindness/love!)
