Sunshine, a nice breeze, the appearance of dramatic clouds and then some rain. You never know what’s going to happen on a wedding day, but trust me when I say an outdoor wedding is always a good idea!
Sarah and Braden live in Edmonton, Alberta, but we traveled to Saskatchewan for their wedding. They planned their day at Firesong Resort on Fowler Lake. They wanted a wedding that gathered their families together, and the resort allowed them to have everyone stay at the same location for the weekend.
The day gave us every mixture of weather – wonderful sunshine, dramatic rainclouds (and then rain!), and then a stunning sunset. I will always, always encourage couples to have their first dance outside, in the open air, in that incredible light. It’s priceless!
Sarah and Braden chose to have a First Look, and we had it on the dock of the lake. What an incredible location for a First Look! The perfect way to have additional time together, and to have a private, intimate moment together before the wedding day runs away from you.
When the rain came, she ran for shelter with a huge smile on her face. He watched her with complete love on his face. What a fun, perfect wedding day memory.
We had a blast at this wedding, and we’re so honoured we were chosen to photograph it. Thank you so much for having us Sarah and Braden!
