A little bit about the wonderful couple: 

I'm 27 years old born and raised in Calgary. I moved to Belleville Ontario to go to college where I met jimmy who was born in Germany from a polish family and moved to Canada and was raised in Aurora, Ontario.
We met the first week of college through roommates and instantly connected we became fast friends. After a couple months we realized we liked each other and started hanging out more one on one rather then the group setting you normally always find in college. We bonded over music, movies and sports. We dated for 3 months and i returned to Calgary for break and missed him quite a bit. When I went back to Ontario I stayed with his family for a weekend and we made the official boyfriend and girlfriend status. The first summer after college jimmy came and lived at my parents house for the summer. He did that every summer we were In college. After we graduated he managed to get a job at city TV in Calgary where he has been since this past May. Through the years we've gone on many road trips, concerts, camping adventures and travelling.
We got engaged last October when we took a three week vacation to Bali and Thailand he proposed to me the second week of our trip while in Ubud, Bali. I had saved up for this gorgeous private villa that overlooked the rice paddies with an infinity pool.
The whole proposal day was pretty awesome! I had been sick the day before so he found this American pub and we went and played pool and ate French fries and nachos while drinking American beer! Which I was pumped for since I had been so sick from the local cuisine ha :( when we returned to the villa it was covered in flower petals and Lilly's and there was a bottle of wine chilling! Which was a big deal because the wine is so expensive there and all I wanted to as a glass of wine the whole trip! So I actually thought jimmy was doing a nice romantic gesture! I was so excited about the wine I told him I would grab some tunes and a deck of  cards and we could drink the wine! He seemed confused and when I returned with the cards I said oh you haven't poured the wine yet? And he got down on his knee and proposed! I was pretty shocked ha it was a wonderful night with danced drank wine and swam. We didn't tell anyone until we got home and surprised my parents and had people over to tell them the news!

Shawnessy Barn Wedding

From the lovely bride:  The whole idea behind our wedding was to have a huge celebration of our love for one another and bring in the New Year with all of our friends and family. We wanted it to be very laid back and relaxed with games and ice hockey, and we really could not have been any happier with how it turned out! Steven and I are very adventurous and have a passion for being in nature, wether it is canoeing, kayaking, hiking, ski touring or fishing and hunting. We felt that it would be cool to bring that out in our wedding through writing our own vows and the overall décor of the wedding venue. Most of the decorations were hand made by myself and Steven using birch bark and pin cones collected from our various canoe trips to Churchill Rivers in Northern Saskatchewan, which was represented by a small canoe paddle displayed with the taboggan. The birch bark was used to wrap around mason jars and the pine cones for my bouquet and to hand from all of the chairs with twine rope. With that being said, we really wanted a DIY wedding not only because of our meager budget of $4,000 but to really represent whom we are as a couple. We also wanted our ceremony to involve all of our family and friends with the smudging ceremony and have it represent what it means to us. The smudging ceremony symbolizes the start of great new beginnings, it is a ritual that cleanses the mind, body and spirit. Recapping our wedding together, I think our favourite parts of the day were sharing our vows with one another surrounded by all our family and loved ones. The hockey and ice skating was awesome. It was great to get outside and play, that was half the fun of having a winter wedding.The poleroid Photo Booth with the silly props for our guest registry was ridiculously fun, we were able to capture some great moments and felt that it was a fun way to keep track of everyone who came out!  We loved the Go Pro mounted to a 40 ounce bottle of Appletons rum, it was used to film all of our guests partaking in the fun, plus we got some great footage of peoples grimacing faces. The vintage ski, donate by my grand-mother, reclaimed into a shot ski really represented our passion for the mountians. The Minute to Win It games to get Steven and I to kiss, the speeches our family and friends prepared for us and of course pigging out on all the Boston Pizza! I am sure we could just keep going on and on about the day and into the night, the count down to the New Year with fire works and sparklers, watching the fireworks and dancing till we couldn’t stand anymore.

Blue Meadows Wedding

Scans by: PhotoVision Prints | Venue: Blue Meadows | Rentals: Special Event Rentals

A few words from Lisa, the bride: The girls started the morning with mimosas, getting our hair and makeup done in our home. It was a nice relaxing morning. The boys got ready together while having a beer and hanging out. The boys met us across the park from our house where Ryan and I got to see each other for the first time. One of my favourite moments because it was just us. He looked so handsome in his dress uniform.

The girls and boys got their one limos where we had some drinks, relaxed and took some photos in the River valley. The weather was perfect for the day. Sunny and warm with a early morning sprinkle of rain - just a little good luck for the big day!

The ceremony was our absolute favourite part! It was a little grass nook under some trees with an aisle lined in flowers and all of our loved ones. We were so lucky to have our friend Derrick play the bag pipes as the boys entered and Ryan's Uncle Paul and cousin Brie Sweet on the piano and trumpet playing our song 'Come to me' as the girls walked down the isle. On my Dad's arm I walked to Ryan where we said our "I do's" with the help of the Edmonton police Chaplin Lawrence.

The rest was was history. Beautiful photos of Ryan and I in the valley at Blue Meadows by Justine Milton. A love filled reception MC'd by Ryan's cousin Adam Sweet. Delicious food by my cousins catering company K&K catering. Dancing and celebrating till the early morning.

The wedding is more than we could've have ever imagined. Ryan and I are so fortunate to have so many wonder friends and loving family that could spend the day with us.
