ACREAGE WEDDING: EDMONTON WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Kristine & Curtis never really knew what they were getting themselves into when they decided to have an outdoor September wedding. In Alberta, we generally will have beautiful weather with a mixture of colour and sun – but that was not the case this year. Luckily for me, Kristine & Curtis were in great spirits right from the moment I arrived (even though it had been snowing and raining for the 24 hours prior to the wedding day, and was still misting). No, the rain did not stop – and no, it did not warm up. It didn’t matter what the weather was like – the wedding was going to happen regardless, and we decided to make the best of it!
Kristine & Curtis never complained about the cold, or getting wet. Instead, they cuddled into each other and we had a fantastic day of photographing! Although there were many things that were less than ideal, their reception venue and DIY decor was absolutely perfect.

I grew up on that acreage (from being brought home from the hospital until I moved in with Curtis). The venue did not exist when we got engaged two years ago.Almost everything that could go wrong did go wrong. My sister-in-law missed the wedding because of an emergency c-section the day before, our ceremony site was in two inches of water a few hours before guests arrived (that path down the aisle was not planned, we called one of my bridesmaid’s boyfriends in a panic and got him to bring loads of woodchips to put down that morning), and our caterer says those were some of the harshest conditions they’ve ever dealt with at an event (their truck got stuck after dinner and we had to pull it out of the mud with a quad the next day). It was still an absolutely perfect day. – Kristine, bride
