You really can’t get much more quintessential Canadian wedding photography than when a Mountie marries an elementary school teacher on a B.C. heritage property decorated with nearly 90-year-old maple trees.
Now, that’s worth a mic drop!
Kristin & Matt married on July 29th at the Fort Langley Community Hall with family & friends who laugh just as hard as they do. It was a contemporary country themed wedding, replete with lace, sunflowers, country music and lawn games (homemade Yardzee) – sans cowboy boots, tho!
You may remember these two from their Snowy Winter Engagement Session & snowball fight.
As Kristin tells the story, she and Matt met (somewhat reluctantly) on a blind date! Neither were sure about going out with a stranger, but their mutual friend was “very, very persistent.”
Kristin caved and connected with Matt on social media. He suggested a time and place…and the rest…well, it’s history.
Queue proposal story 😉
“Simple, but a little quirky. Matt was working a night shift the evening before my birthday, so I was home alone. I called Matt in a panic late at night, thinking someone was breaking into our house. After checking each room and reassuring me I was just hearing things, the clock hit midnight and it was my birthday.
“Matt told me he had a surprise, but that this particular gift was about embarking on our greatest adventure yet. (I thought he was talking about a vacation, until he got down on one knee…) He said that he couldn’t think of a more personal place to ask than the first home that we made together!” ~Kristin
Whether you’re a quintessential couple or a totally off the wall duo, I love to photograph couples who design their own day.
