Well, what can I say about these two lovebirds? I hadn’t met Lisa & John until the Tuesday before their Saturday wedding (which is often the case for couples that don’t live in Winnipeg but are getting married here) but we had been in contact for over a year before their big day and so it was fun to finally put the faces to the names! These two are the cutest together..and have a very fun story about how they ended up together. Turns out that Jonn & Lisa actually lived next door to each other as kids so John literally married the girl next door! Lisa was good friends with John’s sister and kept in touch after she and her family moved to Alberta. So visiting John’s sister in her 20′s, Lisa was reacquainted with John over the internet (via his sister) and the rest is history! Planning a wedding from two provinces away can be stressful so Jennifer from Wink Wedding Planning did an amazing job of orchestrating the day and making it that much more enjoyable for John & Lisa, without the stress! Their intimate wedding ceremony and lunch reception was held at the always fabulous Terrace 55 at Assiniboine Park. From the beautiful location to the yummy food, I LOVE shooting weddings there!

did you know that Barbie has her own shoe line for women? Well, she does! How hot are these?!

Lisa, not even in her dress yet and already stunning!

These vintage pearls belonged to Lisa’s Great-Grandmother and her Mom restrung them with a vintage brooch to add just enough bling to be perfect!


Isn’t the terrace at Terrace 55 the most ideal setting for a wedding??

After the ceremony, we snuck away for some photos..and I’m glad that we did because the clouds rolled in and the rain began just after this…

Villa Flora did a stunning job on the bouquets!

The birdcage veil, the vintage pearls, the antique lace wedding dress…it was all so gorgeous!

Lisa’s dad telling the story of how they used to live side by side…

Since it was an late morning ceremony and a brunch reception, the food was more fun than formal…coconut shrimp, mini cheeseburgers (so good!), and a dessert and candy buffet…lunch heaven!

This little boy would just NOT stop laughing…so who am I to argue?

the same went for the girls…

I love this little sneaky grin…

and then the rain started…

and rain or shine, the bride just kept on smiling :)
