Madi & Shane {Elkwater, AB Wedding}

Cypress Hills has always been one of our favourite locations to shoot weddings. I'm not sure if it's the fresh air, the fact that you're constantly surrounded by beauty or just the fact that it's one of our "Happy Places"-but the weddings out here always seem to be so relaxed and beautiful.

Madi & Shane's Big Day was no exception. This was the first time we'd shot a ceremony out on the "Peninsula", and it made for a lovely backdrop to their vows. The afternoon breezed (pun intended?) by without a hitch, with so many laughs, an awesome pizza delivery out to the shoot location (Thanks Cory!) and even allowed for some nice time for the wedding party to take a breather before their reception began. Which worked out perfectly as Matt & I were able to get to the Reception and capture the amazing decor that the Madi and her team had worked so hard on (It was incredible!). 

This reception had so many great hits, from the creative guest book photos, to the unbelievable candy bar. I don't think I've ever laughed harder at the number of kids grabbing entire bowls of candy and dumping them onto their plates. Let me just say though-it kept the kiddos entertained and quiet all through speeches, and the sugar rush didn't hit til it was time to boogie on the dance floor. (I tip my hat to you Madi, the best timed Candy Bar I've ever witnessed!) 

All in all, an amazing day!

Congrats Madi & Shane! You two were an absolute dream to work with!
