There’s a reason that I happen to love fall weddings, and that reason is glaringly obvious in this sweet Saskatchewan affair. Soft fall hues, crisp, cool weather and a crazy gorgeous “I do” celebration? That’s what I call a guaranteed day of lovely, my friends. And when that lovely day is combined with some fabulous fall stylings (think DIY paper florals and mason jar centerpieces) and a bride and groom who could NOT be cuter? Even better. See it all captured by Prairie Lane Photography right here.
From the Bride… Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From the ceremony through to the final dance, we were filled with joy and surrounded by love. The décor, which was such a true representation of both of us, came together effortlessly. The fall weather cooperated and made for a warm afternoon in the sun with our fantastic bridal party. It was a blessing to have all of our friends and family there to share in the celebration – we were overwhelmed with the love and support of our guests. It truly was the happiest day of our lives!
Noah and I first met more than ten years ago when he was playing CIS volleyball with my older brother. My family often went to watch his volleyball games and I knew Noah as the tallest boy on the team. He came to live at my parents’ farm to work in the summer of 2007 and I didn’t think much of it. He was done with university and I was still in high school; I was his buddy’s little sister and he was my brothers much older friend – nothing more. He was a great family friend and sparks didn’t fly between us until three years later when I was finishing university. I ran into him one evening at the bar, gave him a big hug, and introduced him to my friends as “Noah, the boy I’m going to marry!” We soon began dating and two years later were engaged to be married.
I bought Noah tickets to see George Strait for Christmas 2012 and the concert was in North Dakota so we planned a quick weekend trip to the States. We were on our way back home and had to pass through the tiny town of Rugby, North Dakota. Noah had done his research and realized this small town was actually the Geographical Centre of North America. We stopped to take pictures at the landmark and it was there that Noah proposed!
My best moment of the day was after supper, during the program, when one of our groomsman surprised us with a song he had prepared. I listened to him sing and was brought to tears as I stopped and took in that special moment. I looked around the room and realized that every person we loved was there with us, and all of our preparations had finally come together to create the most wonderful day of our lives.
My favorite wedding detail was the décor. From the mason jars to the antique wooden doors to the antlers, it was all such a true representation of Noah and me.
