Winter Wonderland Wedding | Rachel & Duncan

On September 22nd 2018 I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Rachel and Duncan’s wedding.

I first met this couple in the summer at one of my mini sessions I held in Sylvan Lake. I immediately connected with them. When we finished our session I rushed home and told my husband that I had just met the coolest couple ever and that I wished I could become friends with them! Well my wish came true! After I sent off their gallery from their mini session, Rachel messaged me and asked me if I would be interested in being their wedding photographer. Of course I said yes!

The day before their wedding, mother nature gifted us with a huge, fluffy blanket of snow! It’s not what Rachel had in mind for their fall wedding, but we made it work and the day could not have been more beautiful! Duncan’s dad took his snow blower and plowed the whole park where the ceremony was held. Last minute they set up a coffee and baileys bar (um hell YESSSSS), rented two big heaters, and supplied all their guests with blankets to wrap up in. The ceremony was simply stunning. Light flakes of snow fell down as they exchanged their vows.

Rachel & Duncan had decided on doing a first look before their ceremony, and I am so glad they did! First looks are my absolute favorite! The day is so stress free when you have all the time in the world for pictures and are able to relax. We even had time to go to Hudson’s for some beers and of course a ski shot! Nothing says Canadian like drinking a shot off of a ski!!

Their reception was held at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club. This venue is stunning. Huge windows surrounded the room and over looked the golf course, They strung up lights and made a HUGE dance floor. The food was mind blowing and they even had a donut bar.

Rachel & Duncan, I am so grateful for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful day. It was like something out of a fairy tale, a true winter wonderland! I wish you both nothing but the best and cannot wait to connect with you again!
