Mackenzie & Ian – Winter Wonderland Wedding

Mackenzie & Ian – Winter Wonderland Wedding
March 8, 2012 Haley Shandro

I hope the Poet Laureate from Mackenzie and Ian’s wedding appreciates my alliteration!  Many things made Mackenzie and Ian’s wedding special – in addition to a Poet Laureate who contributed a reading at the ceremony and a speech, the date was in honour of Mackenzie’s grandparents who celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary that weekend.

We love the rustic charm of Mackenzie and Ian’s wedding, and the subtle guinea fowl feather and polka dot theme. It was a beautifully planned and styled intimate wedding.  The beautiful florals are by Laurels on Whyte.

Mackenzie and Ian did a first look before the wedding – it was such a cute moment! We had time to squeeze in a few photos prior to the ceremony.

The ceremony at Grace United Church was very personal, and the very busy little ring bearer kept everyone entertained!

Mackenzie & Ian’s intimate reception at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club was incredibly fun.  Both families and friends delivered entertaining speeches,  and the mood was joyous and celebratory.  The couple reside in Halifax and many guests are from the East Coast, and the MC demonstrated the use of an authentic ‘Sou’wester’ (which this prairie girl had to look up – it’s a waterproof hat). Ian’s cousin made their beautiful wedding cake.

The guy with the medal? That’s the official Poet Laureate for the wedding! How cool!

It snowed the entirety of Mackenzie and Ian’s wedding. It was beautiful, soft, and romantic, and I couldn’t help but steal them outside at the end of the reception for one last photo.

    Gorgeous photos!
    I LOVE the polka dot touches and the last photo is amazing!

  2. Just fantastic work. I love that you mix a contemporary style with a classic style. Like the portraits of the bride getting ready – timeless. But the couple portraits feel really modern. That’s inspiring to me. And most importantly – it always feels natural. Well done!
