Now this was a wedding for the memory bank! This has to be one of the sweetest, most kind, funny, loving, talented and strong couples I have had the immense pleasure of photographing. They are so great! I am so pleased to finally be able to share the magic from their special wedding day at their lovely family farm, McKenzie Farm, near Edmonton, Alberta.
The day started with lots of laughs at the grooms getting ready location. Ryan, thoughtfully, got each of his groomsmen baseball bats that we later took to a park and played around with them. These guys are so awesome! I mean cream of the crop kind of guys. Super funny, kind, always thinking of how to help make the most of Ryan's day. They were an awesome crew to work with!
Bri is one heck of a lady herself. Ironman triathlete, Naturopathic Doctor and what I think is her best quality, a heart of gold. This lady smiles, and the whole room lights up. Seriously they are an amazing couple!
Their day was so beautiful! The fall colours were just starting to come out, the weather was warm and sunny, the scenery could not have been more intimate and beautiful. All of their guests came prepared to laugh, celebrate and be witness to a really loving union between two great souls. The weather held for us all day until the very end of our Bride/Groom portrait session. At that time, the rains came and cooled the day down leading us into one heck of a great reception and party!
I feel so blessed to have been a part of their great day. Here are my favourite images from their wedding. I hope you enjoy it!
Bri and Ryan, my deepest gratitude to you both for having me come along and capture your beautiful union. I wish you both so much joy, love and happiness on your journey together. Much love to you both! xoxo
