Since we moved over to our new website, we thought we’d share a few of the first few weddings we shot together! Pam & Henry’s Qualico Centre Winnipeg Wedding started out looking like Mother Nature would have a say in changing the day’s plans! When we arrived at the Inn at the Forks, the dark clouds rolled in. As the morning went on, they grew darker and darker, and about an hour before we were set to do their first look, the clouds burst! The power even went out at Pam & Henry’s house, which was where the guys were getting ready!
So we decided to wait a little bit to see if the storm would blow over. Knowing that we had plenty of time before we needed to head to the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden at Assiniboine Park, we did a few photos with the girls inside the hotel, while the guys waited in the lobby.
As luck would have it, we gained a window of opportunity! The clouds lightened and the rain stopped! We found a cute little garden just outside the hotel where Pam & Henry were able to do their first look, with the biggest of smiles on their faces!
We then made our way to the park, where once again, Mother Nature threatened to rain us us again. One thing we’ve become very good at is watching the weather radar! These two had their hearts set on having an outdoor ceremony in the beautiful Leo Mol Sculpture gardens. We decided to wait again for a little bit before making the call. With an hour to go, the radar map looked like we could time it just right! The next wave of rain wasn’t supposed to hit until 45 minutes after their ceremony. Pam & Henry made the call to go ahead with the outdoor ceremony, knowing we had umbrellas ready for them just in case! We are so glad they did! While the thunder rumbled in the background, they were able to have the ceremony of their dreams!
Almost immediately after we all moved over to the Qualico Centre for the reception, the clouds burst once again! It was time to get the party started!
Pam & Henry, thank you for being so adventurous and willing to take a gamble! We had so much fun!!
