Rachel + Ian have the most contagious energy, always laughing + smiling, that you naturally gravitate towards them in any room. They are the couple that you want to know + have in your circle of friends, because you are 100% guaranteed a memorably FUN time of side splitting chuckles when you’re around them. From our very first meeting I couldn’t get enough of this two + their big smiles + the very obvious adoration that they share for one another.
While planning their wedding from Winnipeg, Rachel + I would check in via text + email, + as the days drew closer to their wedding day, I couldn’t wait to be reunited with his bubbly babe! As I entered their hotel room at Caesars Windsor, Rachel met with in the cutest PJ set (also matching her Bridesmaids) with the famous big smile, mimosa in hand + offering me 1 myself haha. Seeing her in the centre of all of her closest girlfriends, you could see that each + every gal was connected to this babe’s amazing energy + so happy to he apart of her crew!
As Rachel slipped into her Pronovias gown with most gorgeous floral appliqué bodice, every gal around her was gushing about how drop dead gorgeous this raven haired babe was. I especially loved how her gorgeous fresh floral bouquet by The Bourbon Rose Floral Design Co. perfectly accented her jewel toned lip.
Rachel + Ian planned to have a First Look early in the day, so that they could spend the day together + not feel rushed, but instead relish in every joyful moment of their day. With umbrellas in tow, these two shared their First Look at Willistead Manor, under the sprinkle of some good luck rain showers. The rain didn’t phase them 1 bit + those winning smiles never faded.
We wrapped up their Creative Session with their fabulous crew of friends + family, + then made our way to The Water’s Edge Event Centre to prepare for their Wedding Ceremony. Gold glitzy sequins, champagne linens, crystal chandeliers + deep gem stoned florals adorned the room decorated by the lovely Allure Events, as their guests witnessed these two say their I Do’s.
Their Reception was full of energy + a whole lot of emotions, especially happy tears during some truly heartfelt speeches. I myself was teary snapping the Father-Daughter dance, seeing Rachel’s Dad get misty eyed in the moment.
Rach + Ian from the second you booked me I had been looking forward to every hang out, every shoot, every phone call + message. I just can’t enough of you two + I can see why everyone around you loves you so much, myself included! xo
Here are a few of many favourites from their gorgeous Fall Wedding!
