Jaymie and Andrew met when they were both broke college students. On their first date, they pooled their pennies to share some McDonald’s fries. She stole his phone and changed her name to “The Best Girl Ever.” Andrew agreed.

Fast forward a few years to some wine on the patio after a day of yardwork. Andrew, seemingly about to pour another glass, suddenly dropped to one knee. Jaymie thought he fell, and immediately panicked. Flipping into nurse mode, she also dropped to her knees. He was sweating. This wasn’t good. She kept asking him over and over “Are you ok? Are you having a heart attack?”

“No!” he replied, “I’m trying to ask you to be my wife!”

It doesn’t take much more than that to show what kind of people Jaymie and Andrew are. They’re outdoorsy, laid back and spontaneous. Furthermore, they’re incredibly compassionate and thoughtful. As a result, their vision for their Waskesiu wedding was simply that their guests have “full tummies and a cold beverage in hand.” This relaxed ideal carried throughout their day.

The bride and groom got ready in separate cabins at the beautiful Lost Creek Resort in Waskesiu. The girls’ cabin contained a flurry of activity: hair, makeup, joking, visitors, mimosas and ham sandwiches. Jaymie’s mom went on a mission to have all traces of elk poop removed from the lawn at the ceremony site. The guys watched wrestling next door until it was time to get dressed. Jaymie and Andrew met on a private little path in the forest for their first look, giddy with excitement about the day to come.

The lawn of the Waskesiu Community Hall provided the perfect setting for their outdoor wedding ceremony. Guests milled around in the sunshine, hugging and laughing, waiting for the couple to arrive. Jaymie and Andrew said their vows surrounded by family, friends, and beautiful old trees, as Waskesiu Lake glinted in the background.

Their laid-back lake wedding vibe continued throughout the afternoon. After family photos behind the hall and wedding portraits on a quiet little beach, they had plenty of time to spare for a cold beer before the party began! Rustic touches of wood, tin, and burlap decorated the quaint log cabin beside the lake. They also included a few nods to the Saskatchewan setting, with wheat in the centrepieces and artwork in the shape of the province for the guests to sign. With full tummies and cold beverages, parents and friends offered tributes to the bride and groom. Laughter and music filled the hall throughout the night, and the elk bugled outside as the sun set on a perfect Waskesiu wedding day.
