This day began with the ladies and guys both getting ready in Osborn area. Jenn & Kevin’s first look happened in their very own home which brought a few tears and many smiles. We then headed off the Cibo’s Cafe on Waterfront for some food, and fun photos of them and their crew. We then made our way to Pineridge Golf club where driving golf carts and dancing around the golf course was just some of what went down. These two celebrated the night away with close family and friends.
Signe and Aaron’s wedding was the perfect dreamy style. The girls got all dolled up at the Fort Garry Hotel while the guys spent the morning perfecting their gaming skills in the Billiards room at the Manitoba Club. The MB club staff along with decor by Planned Perfectly set up an amazing intimate outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. The reception continued upstairs with the most scrumptious deserts catered by the Manitoba Club themselves. Family and friends gathered for speeches and mingling while Signe and Aaron shared their first dance in front of the picturesque night sky window light.
This elegant and intimate backyard wedding was to die for. After a fun-filled morning, Marta & Jon tied the knot in a clear tent perfectly styled by Alex (Alexandra Lillian Weddings & Events). After the ceremony we all headed to Birds Hill Park for some beautiful formal photos before going back to their home to party the night away. Thanks Marta & Jon, for having us as your wedding photographers.
Brandi & Tom Wedding - Log Cabin Tavern, Kenora
This lake side wedding in Kenora was beautiful! We had the best day with Brandi and Tom and all of their close friends and family. We ventured off to take some creative photos in the Lake of The Woods Discovery centre. We then made our way to a hidden treed area along side the water which had the perfect path ways and coloured foliage. The reception was held at the Log Cabin Tavern and the rustic DIY decor made this set up just perfect.
Samantha & Tyler Honeymoon Session - Bali, Indonesia
We were so blessed to be able to join Samantha and Tyler in Ubud, Bali for this tropical honeymoon session. We began by taking a walk around the town through Villas and the sweet smells of locals cooking food The hanging tree vines and shaded pathways made for a perfect start. We then headed to the Tibumana Waterfall about a 20 minute drive from our villa. We had to pay an extra fee for them to allow us to photograph wedding photos but it was so worth it! It wasn’t too busy with tourists as we went in November. Some of the people who were enjoying the water even cleared the way for us so we could get the perfect view of the waterfall behind them. We didn’t have to convince Samantha and Tyler to dip their toes in the water as this 36 degrees day was a hot one!
Damon & Kendell Wedding - Niverville Heritage Centre
Damon and Kendell’s Wedding day began at the Four Points Sheraton in Winnipeg with their Wedding parties. They all got ready while sipping fine wine and laughing away their morning jitters. Their first look took place in the lobby bar which was fitting since Kendell himself is quite the wine connoisseur. We continued the day by heading to Winnipeg’s iconic Forks Market location where the temperatures reached well into the high 30s. We took shelter from the heat inside Via Rail and The Commons and managed not to melt when we spent some time outside around The Canadian Museum for Human Rights for their formal photos. The ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Niverville Heritage Centre where family and friends came together and brought laughter and happy tears for these two and danced the night away. We were happy as photographers to document such an incredible pair.
The Met in the heart of downtown Winnipeg was the perfect location to celebrate Katrina and Eric’s big day. Stylized to perfection by Amanda Douglas Events and her team, this set up was nothing less than a romantic indoor dream. Flowers by Melanie were delivered bright and early while the ladies were made up by Grace Hill Salon and Vow Artistry. Katrina and Eric opted for a first look at Stephen Juba Park alongside the Mere Hotel surrounded by their wedding party. We continued with bridal photos along Waterfront Drive and ended near Bell MTS centre with the pair sporting their favourite Winnipeg Jets hockey jerseys. The night was filled with love as their family delivered heartfelt speeches about the couple. We were even able to capture some shots from the Met’s second floor balcony with the newlyweds. As wedding photographers we love how Katrina and Eric trusted our photo vision and we were so happy to be part of their day.
Julie & Sean Love Story
Julie and Sean opted for a lakeside Love Story session as most of their summers are spent out at Sean’s family cabin. Laughs were had on the dock and running along on their Lac du Bonnet property. We loved the flowers in full bloom and used the landscape as framing for some dancing dips and sweet summer kisses.
This Winnipeg winter wedding styled shoot was an idea we had for quite some time. Travelling to Europe a few times now we’ve seen many European wedding trends and wanted to bring a bit of that vibe back home. The pampas grass was a key element we wanted and Academy Florist brought our hoop vision to life. Eph Apparel, Helene’s Bridal Salon, and FIFTH Hair Lounge & Beauty Bar did amazing at providing the look we wanted for our models. Tricia Bachewich Events was so kind in connecting us with Simply Perfect Decor, VP Calligraphy & Design and of course the venue St. Boniface Golf Club. Together we all put in the work and what came out was beautiful and a Winnipeg Wedding dream.
We loved Kate and Scott’s unique and beautiful wedding. Kate and her family custom made all the decor and set up. It highlighted her sky blue tulle wedding gown perfectly. We ran around the town of Brandon Manitoba capturing their first look and formal photos. They shared a first kiss as husband and wife under a snowfall followed by tequila shots to warm everyone up on the dance floor.
Jackie and Braden said "I do" during a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Ashgrove Acres. Joined by their adorable son Jayden, their "first look" moment is one of our favorites. At the end of the evening this crowd was full of energy and danced the night away!
Moody skies and some trendy decor at Ceilo's garden made for a fairy tale wedding for Kristen and Keith. These two are surrounded by so many loving family and friends we couldn't have been happier to be their Wedding Photographers.
Karen & Jeremy Love Story
Karen and Jeremy’s Love Story began in their beautiful Windsor Park home. Jeremy showed off his amazing cooking skills and their kitty Nala joined in for some cuddles. We finished this Manitoba Fall session at King’s Park with lots of smiles, cozy sweaters and a beautiful Winnipeg sunset.
When Melissa & Gavin asked us to photograph their 10 year anniversary vow renewal we were so honoured. Melissa, of Sugar & Soul Photography, is one of the best Winnipeg wedding photographers around and we were very happy to have her as our own wedding photographer in 2016.
Dozens of their closest friends and family were invited to their cabin in Lake of the Woods, Kenora to celebrate with them after they renewed their vows on a private island across the lake. The location was dreamy and these two were even dreamier.
