Saskatoon: Elegant Spring Wedding

From the photographer, Monica of Red Bloom Photography:

As a wedding photographer I feel deeply honored to get to tell the story of people’s weddings with my photos. And when those couples are people that I am deeply connected to, there is no greater honor than that. I was beaming with joy when my beautiful cousin Stephanie got engaged to her handsome high school sweetheart Erick. I waited patiently for them to ask and when they did I did the biggest happy dance!!!

Erick and Stephanie got married at St. Philip Neri Parish and they had their reception at the Western Development Museum. We did all of their photos at the University of Saskatchewan, starting in a nice garden and then moving into the central area of the campus and in front of one of the stunning brick res buildings. The couple is big into the outdoors – hiking, skiing, camping, etc. – so they wanted a elegant weddings with simple natural touches.

I am not going to lie, I teared up a few times on this wedding day, and smiled until my cheeks hurt. I loved all the speeches, how my aunt mentioned how proud Stephanie’s dad would be of the man she chose to marry, and how everyone talked about how hard working and driven this power couple is.  The funniest speech was when Erick‘s mom said “When your son marries the girl who’s big sister is the childhood best friend of his sisters husband… you might be a redneck!”

From the bride, Stephanie and groom, Erick:

Special family touches really made the day unique for us. Our photographer and our florist are the bride’s cousins and the rehearsal dinner was prepared by aunts and uncles. It was very special to have their extra special touches on the day.

Stephanie: My most memorable moment of the day was reading the thoughtful note and opening the personal gift from Erick. It was a chance to settle down for a few minutes and really take in the loved ones around me and the fact that I was about to marry the love of my life.

Groom: I will never forget the look on Stephanie’s face as she walked down the aisle, as that was the only thing I could look at. It wasn’t really until after the ceremony that I realized what Stephanie’s wedding dress actually looked like.

Advice to couples planning their wedding day: Step away from your guests and the party for at least 15 minutes, just the two of you, to reflect on the day and enjoy each other’s company. We spent this time walking around Boomtown at our reception venue, the Western Development Museum.

Stephanie and Erick – June 4, 2016
