I am SO excited to share this wedding story on the blog today, not only because it was absolutely perfect in every way, but also because this is a couple where I previously had the honour of photographing the proposal! When Ryan told me he was planning to propose during their couples session I was over the moon with excitement, and it was so special to be able to help plan and capture those moments for them. Since then I’ve gotten to know Sarah and Ryan, and I can tell you that they are two amazing people who love each other in a way that I’d once thought only existed in movies, and it definitely shows in these photos!
Narrowing down which images to show here has been very difficult. Each moment of their day was just so special and filled with emotion, from Sarah’s mother tying up her dress and then seeing her as a bride for the first time, to Ryan tearing up as his bride walked down the aisle. It is really so touching to see all of those emotions which most people try to hide, and it gets me every single time. During the reception at the wonderful Medicine Hat Golf and Country Club, after the couple made their grand entrance I could hear the guests behind me whispering to each other, “Doesn’t Sarah look like a princess?”. I couldn’t agree more, she was absolutely stunning!
Another highlight of the night happened about halfway through the couple’s first dance, when a group of kids that just couldn’t wait any longer ran out to the dance floor, and Sarah and Ryan happily embraced them and they all joined hands to dance together! It was one of the sweetest things I’ve ever seen, and later on the dance floor was packed with everyone both young and old having an amazing time dancing, singing and laughing. I would happily relive Sarah and Ryan’s wedding any day!
Before we get to the photos I would just like to give a huge shoutout to all of the other amazing vendors who helped to make this day perfect! I’ve listed the ones I know below so make sure to check them out!
