Meghan and Garet could literally write the book on how to remain calm and collected when mother nature throws a thundering curve ball right before your backyard wedding ceremony. As the wedding party lined up to walk down the aisle on the shore of Bow Lake, the first drops of rain fell and sent guests darting for the reception tent! In our experience, there are two things that seem to help in times of inclement weather like this… a place to stay dry, and an open bar. Meghan and Garet’s wedding had both, and with the skilled help of their wonderful coordinator Emily with All the Fuss Events, they simply transformed a delay in their ceremony into a cocktail hour! After a bit, they decided to just have their ceremony under the tent, and soon after, the sun came out and guests enjoyed raw oysters and misty views of the mountains.
Luckily, we had perfect weather for Meghan and Garet’s photos, and with the amazing natural light, our film style of wedding photography seemed to be the perfect fit for their woodsy farm portrait session! Huge thanks to White Barn Farm for providing such a gorgeous backdrop (and sheep!) for photos of this bride and groom.
There were so many things about this wedding that were just fun to photograph–from the 1800’s canon that was packed with gunpowder and then FIRED to seeing Garet perform with his old band K-Rex Struts… but seeing Meghan’s dad row her in a canoe to the ceremony site was particularly close to our hearts. ;) Congrats to Meghan and Garet, newlyweds who already have a head start on weathering storms together.
