Jordan + Jamie | Saskatchewan Summer Wedding

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Carnduff

Intimate Backyard Wedding in Carnduff

When the news of covid-19 in our country hit, I was devastated for my couples. Jamie & Jordan had been curating an event to celebrate their love and their plans came to a halt. But I have to say, their intimate wedding was one of the most special celebrations I’ve ever captured.

They showed resilience through all they’ve been through and the day turned out to be be true to their love and who they are.

The Wilmot farm was a special location to Jordan & Jamie, not only because Jordan grew up there, but the two call it their favourite place on earth.  They wanted to share this perfect place with the people they loved and treat guests to an evening of celebration to remember.

J + J shared a mid-day first look which Jamie expressed was one of her favourite moments of the day.  They shared a quite moment before portraits began and Jordan knelt down to surprise Jamie with the ring of her dreams.

The rest of the hot & humid summer day was filled with a beautiful ceremony officiated by Jamie’s Aunt, guests were treated to an incredible dining experience followed by an epic party into the night complete with fireflies & a full moon.

I’m so glad the silver lining presented itself and these two, who I consider friends, were able to plan a (smaller) wedding that felt like them, amidst all the so many obstacles they faced.  It turned out to be one of the best love stories I’ve ever captured!
