Justine & Connor’s wedding was so beautiful and elegant. With a 1920s style and Fort Edmonton Park as a backdrop, guests were treated to an intimate ceremony full of emotion, and an entertaining reception complete with live band.
Justine is a driven businesswoman, with her sister Kendall she owns Poppy Barley Made to Measure Footwear. I am now a proud owner of beautiful Poppy Barley boots, and I’m anxiously awaiting my custom flats to arrive. I know Justine won’t mind me hijacking her wedding blog post for a little shout out to Poppy Barley! My boots are so comfortable, even for shooting an all day wedding, and I’ve always had trouble (like many other women) finding boots because of large calves and flat feet, and I was so happy the day my Poppy Barley boots arrived. They fit like a glove! I respect Justine a lot for her ambition and commitment to delivering an excellent product.
The same elegance that Justine brings to her business she also brought to her wedding to Connor. They are a wonderfully in sync couple, and complement each other well. Connor gifted his groomsmen custom embroidered pocket squares for the wedding with different quotations. On his was written something I certainly agree with: “Better to like 1 year a tiger than 100 years as a sheep”.
These two have already achieved so much success in life, and we wish them even more as they go forward together in marriage.
I’m completely in love with Justine’s dress. Absolutely stunning, and unique.
The ceremony was beautiful and emotional, and the tears flowed very freely. The small church at Fort Edmonton Park was perfect!
The cake table was a bit different, with homemade cookies instead! Beautiful florals by Dasee Floral Boutique.
Justine and Connor made it a priority to spend time with their guests during the cocktail hour. It was a wonderful atmosphere in the Hotel Selkirk lobby.
Connor is a lawyer, and Justine’s dad made him sign a contract that there were no returns or refunds allowed for Justine. I’m not sure it’s a binding legal document though…
My second shooter Melissa managed to capture a ghost at the Hotel Selkirk!
