We were so happy to see Andrea and Ryan tie the knot! Andrea, event planner extraordinaire from Soiree Event Planning, has been a colleague and friend for several years and we’ve enjoyed getting to know Ryan too. It was such an honour and privilege to photograph their wedding… as well as a lot fun since she brought together many of the awesome vendors we love working alongside. It was a beautiful day from start to finish – the perfect wedding for a wonderful couple.
Andrea’s parents have a beautiful character home that created a stunning back-drop for much of the day. From all the getting ready shots to the first look, everything was elegant and unique. Another original aspect for us was shooting at the Univerity of Manitoba. We’ve been there for weddings before but Andrea and Ryan were the first this year and we chose some new locations. I loved the way everything turned out. Andrea was stunning in a gorgeous, fitted dress and the wind picked up her veil perfectly. Ryan didn’t look too bad either. ;) Another unique touch for us was shooting outside of Investor’s Group Field, which made all the guys (big football fans) pretty happy.
Andrea had always dreamed of a “Father of the Bride” kind of garden ceremony and her dream came true on this day. Her dad worked tirelessly to cultivate a beautiful garden and stunning location for the ceremony; how many brides get married in their parents backyard with it looking like this!
As we moved on to the reception, again everyone was blown away by the beautiful details and touches the couple had chosen for the Manitoba Club. It was an awesome evening with delicious food, heartfelt speeches and a lot of fun on the dance floor – the perfect end to a fabulous wedding day.
There are so many wedding vendors who played a huge part in Andrea and Ryan’s wedding day coming together and we didn’t want to leave anyone out. Make sure you check out the list below to see the artists behind the stunning wedding you see in the photos.
Andre and Ryan, thank-you so much for choosing us to be part of your special day. You guys are a wonderful couple and we were thrilled to celebrate with you on your big day. Congratulations!!!
