Gorgeous summer light made for a very special wedding day for our long-time friend Kerri-Rae as she married one of the most incredible men we have ever met. Russ is sweet and caring and he opened his heart not only to Kerri-Rae but also to her two incredible little ones. The story of how they met and fell in love melts our hearts but what really stands out most to us is the moment Russ decided to propose to Kerri-Rae, he didn’t ask her first, he asked her children if he could marry their mom. (bring on the happy tears)
We never thought we would consider a wedding with 400 guests as "intimate" but it’s the best way we can describe their wedding. Every year Russ holds an annual stampede party at their acreage just outside of Calgary and people from all over drive up set up tents and campers all over the property. So when Kerri-Rae and Russ were planning their wedding they decided it was the perfect time to have their wedding during the annual party so that everyone could come out and celebrate.
Weddings are such a perfect excuse to get together as a family, especially when everyone is located in different parts of the world. From the tall trees that lined the driveway, the beautiful tent from Dew Dat Productions, the mobile beauty spa Glamaway Beauty, the lawn games and the camp fire, their wedding took us away from the everyday stress of the city to a magical country wedding so full of tears, laughter and hugs. It was the perfect day for the most perfect couple.
Thank you so much Russ & Kerri-Rae for having us come celebrate your union together, we are truly honored to have been part of your amazing day and even more happy that you two found each other.
