AN OUTDOOR WINTER WEDDING // THORHILD COUNTY, ALBERTA
When I first met Karli and Darren in a coffee shop in St-Albert, we immediately hit it off and I knew that their wedding would be one for the record books (and trust me, it was!). We had a great time chatting about their plans and although November at the time seemed very far, the big day came around really quick!
Although November arrived quickly, the snow sure took it’s time to make an appearance! A week to the big day, and we were still waiting for it! Finally, just a couples days prior the skies gave up and we received a small dusting of snow. Not much, but just enough to allow Darren and Karli to make their grand exit on a snowmobile! How exiting!
Despite the frozen fingers and toes, their winter wedding was seriously fun and a success! The tent where guests were to sit was jam packed with friends, family and loved ones. After the ceremony and the grand exit, everybody gathered once more in the Harper family house to enjoy some snacks and hot beverages! I was welcomed in like family and offered a nice coffee to warm the insides (and Bailey’s – which I grudgingly had to refuse, if the photos were to stay straight the rest of the day!).
Last but not least, Karli had her heart set on having some sparkler photos done with her bridal party that night. (Which I was also very exited about!). A testament to how much Karli and Darren are loved, the entire bridal party (without complaint ;) ) followed outside, to spend a good 30 minutes in sub-zero tempretaes wearing nothing but dresses and suits to capture the photos! They definitely were troopers!
How cute is this! I can’t lie and say he didn’t make me tear up a little too…
I played a game of Pokemon in the morning with this little guy! He was also telling me how exited he was about being the ring bearer…
