Bradie & Amanda said their I do’s earlier this month in front of their family & friends and a beautiful Alberta mountain background. Their wedding took place at Heritage Acres Farm Museum– a unique little place nestled in the rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Located next door to the Oldman River Dam, Heritage Acres has relocated heritage buildings is also home to an extensive collection of farm artifacts. There were some stunning areas for photos and the day turned out nothing short of perfect for Bradie & Amanda.
We started the day out in Pincher Creek with Amanda & the girls at the Ramada, and shortly after we met up with Bradie and his crew back at the museum. Amanda looked absolutely amazing in her dress from Once upon a Bride and Bradie was looking pretty suave in his tuxedo (From Moores Clothing for Men here in Lethbridge). The ceremony was soon to start, but FIRST we headed over to a quiet area where Bradie and Amanda did some “First Look” pictures. There were lots of tears, from the bridesmaids, our groom…and admittedly we may have shed a tear or too. It was definetly a special moment for them both before heading down the aisle to say their vows.
Seriously, these two are awesome. A fun picture afterward…they both high fived each other before leaving over to the the ceremony area. LOVE this! 🙂
And there were lots of smiles for this stylish little man as he strolled down the aisle. There ceremony went off without a hitch and was done just in time as a little rain started to fall. It was short-lived and then we started the family pictures. There were lots of laughs as we went through our list of groupings and we met some pretty fantastic people on both sides!
The reception was held in a barn that was the originally owned by Amanda’s side of the family and was relocated to the Museum. The dinner was catered by Prairie Stone Catering, from Claresholm, Alberta. It was a fun, unique assortment of different types of dishes and everyone had nothing but rave reviews about the food.
The wedding cake was made by Amanda’s talented Aunt Myriam, and her own Maid of Honor was the vocalist for Bradie & Amanda’s first dance as husband and wife.
As we were getting ready to head out, there was a spectacular mountain sunset that we just had to capture. We stole the bride and groom for a few final photos together. They both were amazing to work with and I felt honoured to have captured such a special day for them both.
A big congratulations going out to Bradie & Amanda as they start their life together.
