This wedding was nothing short of perfect! I know I say this a lot but this has got to be one of my favourites. The leaves were changing colours and the temperature wasn’t too hot or too cold. I woke up with that distinct feeling that I’m about to shoot some bangers! Here’s some Assiniboine Park Wedding Pictures!

Morning

After waking up the morning of the wedding I checked the weather one last time before leaving and I saw 90% chance of rain the WHOLE day. No one wants to see that especially for their outdoor wedding. I bought some extra umbrellas and headed to the brides for getting ready. The morning was really chill and we all had lots of time which meant lots of time for dress photos and getting ready photos.

After make up was done and we headed outside for a champagne pop and some outside photos! These turned out soooo good. Because of the chance of rain there was lots of clouds which gave the perfect lighting.

First Look

After everyone was dressed we headed to Assiniboine Park for the First Look. With some quick coordination so the bride and groom don’t see each other too soon we were all set up. As a photographer it’s important I just act as a fly on the wall. Just look how cute this was!

Couple Photos

After all the excitement from the first look we moved into couple photos! These two were so amazing and I got to say it was a blast shooting these photos. About half way through these photos we had the first couple drops of rain… I grabbed the umbrellas I brought and we took some photos with those because why not!  Right after those photos we moved directly into  the bridal party photos. Check them out!

Ceremony

We took a little break from the photos to prep for the Ceremony. If you haven’t seen it, Leo Mol Sculpture Garden has the prettiest ceremony set up! At this point we had next to no rain and the clouds were clearing up so they decided to go with the outdoor venue!

Reception

For the reception we went into the Qualico Family Centre. Which was set up beautifully! We managed to go the whole wedding day without rain so the stress was finally over. The reception was very chill and started with dinner provided by the Venue and we then moved to speeches and then the dance.

Wedding at the Gables Wedding Barn

My wedding at the Gables Wedding Barn was amazing! Not only was the costumer service top notch but the place is just simply stunning. 

If you’re currently searching for a Wedding venue or looking for more wedding photos I’ve shot, than you came to the right place! I’ll also be sharing more of an inside look at what a wedding looked like at the Gables wedding barn.

We started the morning with some typical Detail Shots. These normally consist of some photos of the building, rings, bouquet, and dress photos. Both me and the Videographer (Everett Derksen) found a great spot to put down the ring and shoes for photos.

We then got ready to do some fun outdoors shots with the bride and brides maids before they got into their dresses. I love these shots so much because It’s the perfect way to destress a little and have fun with your friends. 

We planned to do the champagne pop outside in a bit of shade.

Getting Ready

The Gables Wedding Barn has this amazing room in the back for the bride to get ready. Most of the morning it was used for the family to sit around and also for hair and make up. The room also has two barn doors to it. Which are probably my favourite. You’ll see why in the photos below 😉

We then had the first look between the bride and her father as well as with the bridesmaids.

Ceremony

The tears were real during this ceremony! We were so fortunate to have the perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony! A little windy but still nice. 

The Gables Wedding Barn has this amazing field in the background behind the ceremony. The whole thing was just amazing. We got to experience a big Manitoban sky in the background which was just the icing on the cake.

Cocktail Hour

Bridal Party & Couple Photos

After cocktail hour we went straight into some family photos and then bridal party photos. The Gables Wedding Barn has this large open green area that was perfect for groups and couple shots. One thing that made this area so nice is that the sun in the afternoon and evening was back lighting this area. Which is my favourite kind of lighting!

Reception

After the excitement of the couple photos we went inside for the reception. This is where the Gables Wedding Barn really shines. They have an amazing indoor set up and it was perfect for all the guests. Supper was provided by Extreme Fries, they had bottomless poutine. Everyones dream right?!?!

The evening was fill with speeches, dessert, and some other fun. Afterwards we head outside for some dances!

Dances

What a great way to end off a wedding day! The Gables Wedding Barn has this great outdoor area with hanging lights and a comfy sitting area which was perfect for the dance.

Definitely one of my highlights from the day!

Recap

for some odd reason i woke up with the feeling that it would be one of my favourite weddings of 2021 and I was right… The whole experience was amazing! A huge thank you to The Gables Wedding Barn. I’ll link to them below. If you have read this far you should check them out.

Another mention goes out to Zane and Taylor! These two were such a pleasure to capture. Not only were they super organized which always makes my job easier but they were also just a hoot to be around.
