Lauren and Stephen’s wedding day was perfect. They are such a laid back couple and that made everything go smoothly and without stress. I loved that their personalities were a huge part of their day, especially the little details throughout their reception.
As they were each getting ready, I could feel the anticipation in the air. The girls were quiet as they did their hair and makeup at the salon, and the guys had lots of laughs while they got ready at Stephen and Lauren’s home. Even while the ladies did their final preparation, there was little stress and they all seemed so relaxed. Even as the ladies helped Lauren’s mom tie up her dress, there was a lot of emotion. But the smiles told me that there it was all joy. That was probably my favourite part of the day.
The ceremony was held at the German Cultural Centre in Saskatoon, outside under a canopy of beautiful trees. After it was over, the wedding party and I went exploring. We spent some time at the University of Saskatchewan, roaming the buildings and property to find the best spots for photos. Because their ceremony was early in the afternoon we had plenty of time to explore and that made it even more fun and relaxed.
Then we headed to a beautiful park where the bride and groom rode around on Segways and got some portraits with their fur babies. Then I stole them away for some alone time, because I believe that’s so so important on a wedding day. The bride and groom need to have time together to get used to the idea of being married, and they always seem to be more relaxed when there aren’t people all around. We walked down a beautiful path and got some beautifully intimate photos that are some of my favourites from the day.
After that the party began! It was such a great reception! My favourite part was how full the dance floor was. Everyone was having fun, especially the bride as she danced and sang along to “Let it go” with all the little girls who were there.
There are a LOT of photos in this post, but it’s totally worth scrolling all the way through to see the story of Stephen and Lauren’s perfect day. If you like what you see, please leave a comment for the lovely couple!
