Rustic Wedding

Nicole and Damian's Calgary Shawnessy Barn Wedding

Nicole and Damian tied the knot on a chilly June day, the rain made an appearance but that didn’t stop this couple from having a great time and we were beyond thankful for a few breaks in the rain that we could get out and do some photos.

We were booked for a 6 hour package which covered from ceremony all the way to the first dances and into the reception. This is a great option if you are looking to save a little money but still have all the main events covered.

The ceremony was small and intimate with just family and then all the friends came out for the reception. The ceremony was supposed to be outside but with the rain they had to move it in to the Barn which was still beautiful. Nicole and Damian wrote their own vows which had them both tearing up and laughing with each other, I can’t say it enough how much I love when couple’s write their own vows. The awning in front of the barn made if a perfect cover for family photos and then the rain stopped just long enough for us to take some bridal portraits before the reception. The reception was full of fun, joy, and laughter - complete with a synchronized champagne popping and toast. The speeches had everyone laughing, complete with the mother of the bride telling a fun story involving one of Salt-N-Pepa’s popular songs.

Congratulations Nicole and Damian, thank you for trusting us with your big day!

Megan and Matthew's Rustic Calgary Wedding

Megan and Matthew tied the knot over the May long weekend at the Jumping Pound Community Hall. We didn’t get any snow but we did get lots of rain, but the rain didn’t ruin these two lovebirds big day. We were able to sneak outside for a few minutes when the rain let up and were able to gets some creative shots inside.

Matthew is from Scottish heritage and I loved all the Scottish details at the wedding. From the Bagpiper piping in the bride, to paying the piper, sharing a dram, the pinning of the tartan (Megan getting her own sash of the clan tartan) and the tartan table runners. The Jumping Pound Community Hall was the perfect rustic backdrop for a beautiful intimate wedding.
