Just Married: Jeff and Christine – Part 1 of 2 | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

blog-cj-title11

It was such a privilege being part of Jeff and Christine’s wedding day. These two are really fine people (as are their friends and families!). Their wedding was fun and beautiful and really thoughtful on every level. The ceremony took place at St. Margaret’s Anglican church, and thereafter we hopped around to a couple different photo locations, my favourite being Assiniboine Park’s Leo Mol Garden / the English Gardens. Finally, we ended up at the lovely Qualico Centre for the reception.

I’ve decided to post this sneak peek in 2 parts. Today you get a taste of the first part of the day. Stay tuned for Part 2 where you get a peek at some more Assiniboine Park shots, as well as Qualico reception detail pictures!!

Many thanks, Christine and Jeff, for inviting me to be part of this incredible day in your life! Blessings on you both,

Meg

Just Married: Matthew and Moé | Winnipeg Wedding Photography

W-Matt-Moe-title

Matthew and Moé got married late August, and theirs was a beautiful and memorable wedding. Marcus and I went home afterward feeling both happy for them, and grateful for the privilege of photographing their big day.

These two are a total class act (to quote Marcus) – they were the picture of kindness and grace all day long.  I loved how they went out of their way to create a warm, relational, yet super classy environment for all their guests. In keeping with this crazy summer, the weather didn’t look like it was going to cooperate, but last minute the skies cleared they said their vows during a gorgeous – and rain-free!! – ceremony in the outdoor garden at the Assiniboine Park Pavilion. After some mingling and appetizers (and formal photographs!) everyone headed indoors for a delicious meal catered by and hosted in Terrace in the Park.
It was super cool when part way through the reception Matt and Moé surprised their guests with an outfit change, emerging to cheers and gasps in beautiful traditional Pakistani attire. So fun. Not to mention exquisite looking. I loved the celebration of culture that happened that day!!

Matt and Moé, thank you again for inviting us to capture your wedding day!! Enjoy the sneak-peek.

How cute are these two!?

I met Alysha – what? – a year ago now? She and I clicked right away, and have been in touch off an on over the past year as she and Devin worked out the details of their wedding day… Last fall we met up in Assiniboine forest for a family/engagement shoot. Fun! (You can see those pics here.)

The big day dawned with much excitement and anticipation. And their efforts paid off – from details small to big, theirs was a beautiful day. Thanks for inviting me to celebrate your love with you, Devin and Alysha! Enjoy the sneak peek.

Just Married: Haley and Scott | Winnipeg Wedding Photography

HS-blog-title

Marcus and I walked away from this wedding talking about how super nice Haley and Scott are – seriously, what an awesome, grounded, genuine, kind, cool couple. We felt truly privileged to be part of their day. These two sure love each other A LOT, and their friends and family just added to the joy and warmth between them. It was a great day! (Albeit very, very, very hot — but who am I to complain. I’ll take too much heat over not-enough.)

Enjoy the sneak peek!

p.s. The vests the guys wore are from Guatemala, one of about a bazillion places H&S have traveled to… Also note the sweet travel theme in their reception decor. Love it.

Just Married: Toby and Kevin | Winnipeg Wedding Photographers

Marcus and I joined forces on Toby and Kevin’s lovely June wedding day…. we had a relatively short time to get a whole lot of pictures, so having the two of us going was great (and fun! I love working with him). This couple is lovely and sweet and kind, and between a stroll about the exchange district, an intimate ceremony at Dalnavert Museum, and a photo session in and about the beautiful, historic site, we had a bounty of photos documenting their special day and – more importantly – their beautiful relationship:) Thanks, Toby and Kevin, for giving us a glimpse into your life and love on such a profound day!!

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Just Married: Amy and Clinton | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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.

 

 

Just Married: Shannon and Michael | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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!

 

Just Married: Ronda and Marty | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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!

Just Married: Melissa and Scott | Winnipeg Wedding Photographer

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)!
