Honestly. This day. It was amazing! SO. MUCH. JOY, Laughter...and a BLIZZARD (so fierce…that it broke our umbrella!!) From the minute we arrived the energy was the amazing - calm, yet excited and you just knew the day would be incredible no matter what! And it was! The best man even arranged all the mens accessories for when Steve arrived! The ladies had some of the most relaxing vibes EVER! We were pumped to see a light snow fall in the morning…and by the afternoon it was a winter wonderland that kept getting whiter! You know it is going to be an incredible day when you ask if the ceremony is inside due to snow/blizzard and the bride says “NO! I love the snow!” We do to Sam! We do too!!
Austyn’s first look as Samantha came down the aisle…you could SEE his breath catch in his chest as she came around the corner! It was stunning - we don’t know who cried more…Austyn or the bridesmaids! The day was filled with moments like their first look! The first dances…we can’t even! They were beautiful - I (Courtney) was crying.
Samantha, Austyn, the bridal party, the guests - these just happen to be some of the bravest people we have ever met!! The bridal party braved the 40-60km/hr wind & snow for photos AND with smiles on their faces! Thank goodness for Raven Lodge! We were able to dip in and out during photos to set up lights without freezing the party…too much!
Congratulations Samantha & Austyn! We cannot thank you enough for inviting us to share in your Winter Wonderland day!
