Rainy does not even begin to describe the wet day we all woke up to on Ashley and Dennis’ big day! Oy…we’re talking 5.5 inches…INCHES!!!
BUT, a little rain, or even a lot of rain could not dampen the excitement and happiness of the day!! Everyone pulled together and with some rubber boots, shovels, big fans and bags of wood shavings, the farm where the wedding was held looked absolutely beautiful!!
I had the pleasure of having Miss Krista Hill with me again for the day…she thought I was joking or overreacting when I told her to bring her rain boots…good thing she humoured me and brought them along!! We rocked our dress pants and rubber boots all day long!
Even though they played a mean trick, the weather gods were certainly smiling on Ashley and Dennis because the rain stopped in time for photos outside and it was a beautiful sight when the late afternoon fall sunshine came blazing through the clouds in time for the ceremony to start! It was a BEAUTIFUL day!! Dennis and Ashley and their families and friends put so much hard work and planning into all of the details and it definitely came shining through! And I must say, Ashley handled the rain with a smile and a “whatever” attitude…I have seen brides melt down over a lot less!!! This bride handled the weather crisis like a boss!!! You can’t change the weather, so no point in letting it ruin the day…so it didn’t!
I have known Dennis since kindergarten, so I was honoured to be there to capture the day as he married the love of his life! He and Ashley and their whole posse of family and friends are so laid back and so much fun that I couldn’t imagine spending that wild weather wedding day with anyone else and still having such a great time!
It was my favourite type of wedding…a farm wedding! Complete with tractors, cows, straw bales, barns…and this one even had a cow ice sculpture and a late-night visit from a famous local french fry truck (shout out to Ken’s French Fries…the BEST fries EVER…my car still smells faintly of vinegar from my snack for the ride home!)
I’m sure I could write more about how awesome the day was, but Ashley has probably already lost interest and scrolled to the photos! Haha So instead, I will just say: Dennis and Ashley – Krista and I had a fantastic day and we were both super honoured to be a part of your big day!!! Congratulations guys and enjoy the sneak peek!!!
