As soon as you meet Shawnee and Jordan, you can't help but notice the love that is between them and feel uplifted. They both have fun and friendly personalities that put you at ease immediately and make you feel like you have known them for a long time. They are both genuine, funny, and you can tell right away how much they care about their friends and family. Right away, we felt welcomed and a part of their family and this is one of the most wonderful feelings that you can have!
We started our day in Fort Saskatchewan to get ready. Rain was in the forecast but this did not dampen anyone's spirits in the slightest. As soon as the bride and groom were all dressed up we journeyed to the ever-beautiful Hastings Lake Gardens. The sun shone down on us and it wasn't until we were wrapping up the bridal images that it started to rain again.
We headed to the Moyer Rec Centre in Ardrossan for their reception. Their wedding was full of beautiful emotional tributes and mementos to honor family and friends here and those they have lost. Special tables were set up, surprise dances, and touching speeches are just a few of the ways they recognized those that could not be here with us and I will admit that I struggled throughout the evening to keep it together. One of my favourite things about their reception was that they served breakfast for dinner - eggs benny, pancakes, bacon, sausage, and basically everything that you would want! This was a first for us and was a huge hit with everyone there. The night wrapped up with speeches, toasts, and an insane amount of dancing!
Congratulations Shawnee and Jordan - we are so happy for you!! We wish you a lifetime of love, happiness, and laughter!
