Shayna and Corey met through mutual friends at Greenwater Lake. Corey eventually worked up the courage to talk to her, and the rest, as they say, is history. A year after Corey proposed in just about the most romantic way possible – beside a waterfall in Banff – their beautiful autumn wedding was held in Watson, Saskatchewan.
After their ceremony at Sacred Heart Parish Church, the newlyweds spent some time greeting their guests in the warm October sunshine before the family formals nearby. The wedding party then jumped on the bus and we hit the grids. You know you’re headed to a sweet location when Dad drives the party bus down something that can barely be called a “road”, and it didn’t disappoint. We ended up at an abandoned farm where the muted late autumn colors were a perfect juxtaposition to the sparkly turquoise bridesmaids dresses and bright flowers. The textures of the overgrown yard, in combination with the late afternoon light, added an extra layer of romance to the bride and groom photos. The vintage farm implements and vehicles were perfect tie-in to Corey’s career as a mechanic, and the old truck being one of their wedding colors was just the icing on the cake!
I popped in to their Humboldt wedding reception on my way home, just in time for a creative dance routine by some mysterious old ladies in red hats 😉 Congratulations, Shayna and Corey, on a beautiful, laid-back day filled with love and laughter.
