Lanette and Brody had the most beautiful backyard setting for their ceremony in Grindrod, BC. I wish it was an actual venue as I don’t think I’d ever get tired of photographing ceremonies there! Their reception was super closeby in Enderby. I’ve always loved the charm of the Grindrod and Enderby area, not to mention I want to take photos at pretty much every barn in existence there. Lanette and Brody are such a fun pair and their wedding totally matched that quality. Stage Right Etc decked out the ceremony and reception with beautiful and playful details perfect for a country wedding. I especially loved the hay-bale seats for the ceremony. The day couldn’t have gone better and my second shooter, Carley Bortolin, and I had a blast capturing it all! The only thing missing was Lanette’s third bridesmaid, Jessica, who went into labour during the rehearsal dinner the night before and gave birth to a baby boy at 2:00am on the day of the wedding! Wow – crazy timing! She sent Lanette a super cute text that said, “We both get to keep a man in our life forever starting today!” Awww. : )

First look! Yippee! It started raining just as we were finishing portraits (and stopped before ceremony) – thanks for waiting rain! Loved the fun transportation to the reception for guests and the wedding party! The reception was upbeat and fun from the start. A game of flip-cup determined which tables ate dinner first. : D Brody is uncannily good at catching popcorn in his mouth.
