When we first met Ivy and Jason, we knew we were going to be fast friends. As soon as the wedding talk was wrapped up, we dove into conversation and learned that we had so many things in common! For their engagement session (will have to post this beautiful session up soon - so behind in blogging!!) they took us to their favorite fishing spot. Andrew loves fishing (I usually just read lol) and was super excited to find another rad location to fish.
On their wedding day, Ivy and Jason decided they wanted to do a quick first look before they walked down the aisle. One thing about these two, that we learned very quickly, is that they are madly in love! They both light up when they are around one another and it is just the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Jason is constantly making Ivy laugh and it is clear, from the look in their eyes, that they are meant to be together. After the first look, Ivy and Jason said their "I do's" at the stunning Hastings Lake Gardens. This wedding venue is just gorgeous and is perfect for a summer wedding! The gazebo with it's draping vines, surrounded by colorful rainbow flowers, is a romantic setting for your ceremony. Bonus, it offers you some shade from the sun!! In the back, they have a rustic church, a swing set, and a whole other variety of picturesque props that are fun for bridals. And we had SO much fun with Ivy and Jason's hilarious bridal party. We spent the afternoon laughing and goofing around. We always tell our couples that pictures should be fun and stress-free. Nobody wants to look stiff and awkward in their photos.
Their reception was held at the Robin Hood Association in Sherwood Park. This was first time for us at this venue and it was stunning! The entrance offers sweeping arches and tons of natural light. The way they had set up created the feel of walking into a garden, keeping the theme alive. The night was spent playing games, eating delicious food, listening to heartfelt and funny speeches, and of course, dancing!
Congratulations Ivy and Jason!! Thank you for having us capture such an amazing and fun day! We wish you both a lifetime of love, laughter, and good fishing!
