Jen & Pierre

It seems like our last few weddings have featured rain during the day.  It was no different for the wedding of Jen & Pierre on September 7th but that didn't stop us from doing everything we could to get great images for them (we love a challenge!).

We started the day photographing each of them getting ready then headed to the park behind their house for the First Look. This is where the couple get to see each other for the first time. It’s always a very special part of the day that Dave and I love setting up with a couple.

From there we set off to the formal photo part of the day – this is when the rain started. We managed to very quickly get a lot of photos of the couple and the wedding party before making our way to the ceremony in Cardiff Park.

The rain continued throughout the ceremony but it didn't matter… it was a very beautiful ceremony! (And it was funny to see the Justice of the Peace trying to read his words on his rain-covered iPad!)

Once the couple were officially married they got back into the amazing vintage cars that were loaned to them by a family friend and we took a few more photos of the newlyweds at their house before moving on the reception.

Jen did a ton of work on the rustic decorative elements for her wedding and they looked fantastic. She enlisted the work of Sofia from Awespiring Weddings to make sure everything was taken care of for her big day and it was very much worth it. The Morinville Community Cultural Centre looked so great. The flowers that Fabloomosity provided were beautiful – Jen could not have loved her bouquet more.

One of the highlights of the reception was the slideshow that was prepared by Jen’s cousin Lauren. It featured still images, videos and some hilarious interviews with family and friends. Definitely the most creative slideshow we’ve seen so far!

After a great meal, a cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss and first dance by the couple, it was time to party. And we have to say that it was awesome to see such a happy group of people dancing up a storm on the dance floor.   

We wish Jen & Pierre a very happy life together and thank them for allowing us to be a part of their excellent day.

Take a look at some of the moments we captured on the day:
