From the Photographer:
Courtney & Warren were married on a beautiful August day, literally they couldn’t have asked for better weather. They were married at a local church in the town they both grew up on it was a short, sweet and meaningful ceremony. Directly after we went out to the acreage that Warren grew up on out in Ardrossan, Alberta. It meant a lot to the couple that we were able to spend time out at the acreage that meant so much to them. It also couldn’t have been any prettier. Between the rows of trees, vintage truck (which his Warrens brother fixed up for the day), pond and some old farm buildings. Courtney and Warren couldn’t have chosen a better spot for their photos. The reception hall was decorated beautifully by the help of the couples family, they stuck true to the casual romantic feel they they were going for. The couple cared so much about their photos that we were even able to sneak outside in the evening for a couple minutes.
From the Bride:
How did you meet?
We meet when Warren was 17 and I, Courtney, was 15 at a high school party. Warren’s friend was the one who drove me and convinced Warren to come to the party because he originally was not going to come. The funny part of it all was Warren was the only sober boy there and at the end of the night he gave me his number to call him, but the next morning I did not know what was written on my hand. Two weeks later, after my grounding was done Warren contacted me and went on our first date.
What was the proposal like?
Every year for the past few years we go to Warren’s parents cabin at Waskesiu Lake during the July long weekend. The year before the proposal at Pete’s restaurant at the lake I made Warren tell me when he thinks we will propose. At this time we have been together for six years. He said not until I was done university which was in three years. Yet, last summer we did our ritual of going to Pete’s, with me having two years of school left, where Warren tried to convince me to go to a beautiful look out point, I refused because of the horse flys. We than went to get some candy and went to the beach to watch the sunset. I was taking a picture of the sunset and when I turned around to talk to Warren he was on one knee with a box in his hand. I was shocked because I was not expecting him to propose for another two years. I actual asked him in the middle if this was really happening. It was a wonderful feeling to know that I was going to spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams.
What was the best moment of the day?
The best moment of the day was when Warren and me where sitting by ourselves in the church. It was one of the only moments that day we got to spend just the two of us. We were able to laugh and was one of the only times I was not stressed or thinking about anything else other than him. We were full of excitement to finally me married.
