Fall Country wedding-Kerrobert
Oh my goodness where do I even begin with this amazing wedding. Chelsea & Dylan handled 2020 wedding planning like champs. They postponed, there wedding venue went out of business, and then they decided you know what.. lets still get married this year on the farm and make it incredible. Let these two be an inspiration to any couple wanting to get married this year.
Juli and I headed out to Kerrobert for this amazing wedding. Chelsea got ready upstairs while the boys got ready downstairs in their home. In Chelsea's wedding details she had her grandmothers fur coat, and you know we had to show off all the beautiful hand stitching that lined the inside of the jacket. The couple got ready and Chelsea had a first look with her dad once she was in her dress, seriously her dad had one of the best expressions to seeing his little girl for the first time in her dress. The couple exchanged notes to each other and you bet there were tears.
We snuck outside to do a first look with just the couple. There was a beautiful park just across from their home. Dylan was so excited to see Chelsea and they shared a quiet moment together in the park. We had a good giggle afterwards as Chelsea must have come across a lady bug nest in the park and she was covered in lady bugs, however that does mean you will have good luck.
We grabbed the wedding party and off we went for photos. First stop was the classic Kerrobert barn. Every year the graduating class puts their name on that barn, so there are years and years of history there. Its such a cool spot to take photos at. and with it being fall of course we had to take a few photos with treelined pathway. The fall leaves were perfect last year and Chelsea and Dylan had a blast whispering sweet words and giggling to each other while we took photos. We also stopped by the old train station for a few images.
Our next stop was on a hill that overlooked a little lake. Chelsea didn't want a veil all day so she asked me to bring along my REALLY long veil so that we could take some really beautiful dramatic shots overlooking the valley. I would say we nailed it. Shortly after we headed to the farm. The farm dogs had to be in a few photos. The wedding party had a blast and a little bit of a competition. There is really fun shot that has been around for years where the groom or bride shows of their ring and the wedding party goes over the top excited about it. LOL they definitely had some friendly competition going... who do you think won?
Chelsea envisioned a ceremony at sunset and she got just that, a beautiful evening ceremony. There family farm was the perfect place to host there ceremony. Their Jp was fantastic, very professional but still had fun with their ceremony. It was short and sweet but filled with love and laughter. Right after we got everyone together for a sparkler exit, I LOVE these and my word theirs turned out perfectly. We also decided to take a few quick sunset photos and lol Dylan had Juli and I just giggling away with his shimmy dance into the sunset. There is just something to be said about those Saskatchewan skies.
They set up a huge tent and held there reception just a couple of feet away from their ceremony. Surrounded by family and friends and some of the best wedding speeches I have heard in my career the couple had an amazing evening. They played the shoe game, danced the night away and enjoyed some cupcakes and popcorn balls together. I am happy these two decided to have there wedding right where they did and still let love overcome all the challenges tossed there way.
