Like most couples Lindsay and Bert expected to plan their wedding together but Bert ended up working in Africa for 6 months. Lindsay did most of the work but Bert did manage some input from overseas. No matter what, they planned a beautiful and relaxed day that was meaningful to all involved. I guess absence really does make the heart grow fonder! :)
Lindsay and Bert included little personal details that made the day feel so special. A really nice touch was when Lindsay received a clutch from Bert’s parents that used to be Bert’s great-grandmother’s. They chose to have the ceremony at the church Lindsay grew up in and everyone was so excited for these two to say “I do”. The ceremony was beautiful and it was hard not to notice the two huge smiles on both Lindsay and Bert’s faces. :)
Since these two have a real interest in architecture we made sure to include the Legislative Building and the Manitoba Hydro Building. In fact, Manitoba Hydro held a special meaning to these two since they met there one evening at a function. Afterwards everyone headed back to the Fort Garry Hotel for a wonderful meal and some really heartfelt speeches. To end the evening Lindsay and Bert wanted a few more shots away from all the commotion and busyness; I love these shots that came at the end of the night!
Lindsay and Bert, thanks for allowing me to capture such an important day in your lives!
