The Rustic Wedding Barn, located just outside Steinbach, Manitoba, is one of our favourite country wedding locations! When Chantal & Derek told us they were planning a church wedding at the Ste. Anne’s Church and cocktails and reception to follow at the Rustic Wedding Barn, we were super excited. We hadn’t been back since they had complete their outdoor patio renovations.
The guys got ready at the Roadhouse Inn & Suites Their room was fantastic – lots of room to move about and a great south view! We’re sure they were as excited about the view as we were! Derek and Chantal’s dad’s met up with the boys and there were a few tears shed when Derek gave them a thank you gift – watches inscribed with a heartfelt message to each of them.
We then made our way to meet up with Chantal and her girls at the Rustic Wedding Barn, in the Parlour Room. We love that they have a space onsite for the wedding parties to get ready in. The white walls and rustic barn doors make for great backdrops for us!
The barn doors work especially well when your couples want to do a first look! It’s super cool when the couple gets to talk to each other while they wait to see each other. The looks on their faces were priceless. So much love!!!
These two have gone through so much together over the last year and the support and love they have for each other is so incredible.
Surrounded by friends and family, they were married in one of Manitoba’s hidden gems of a church – the Ste.Anne Roman Catholic Church. This church is one of the oldest parishes in Manitoba. It is absolutely stunning and was the perfect setting for two people to say “I do”.
We headed back to to the Rustic Wedding Barn for cocktail hour, where everyone got to enjoy the new outdoor patio and bar area. What is more Manitoba summer than hanging out on the patio, in the sun, cracking a few and enjoying time with family and friends?
The reception kicked into high gear, with great food, good company, lots of laughter and tears. As the sun began to set, we snuck outside for a few quiet minutes, to take it all in.
Congratulations Chantal & Derek! We are so happy for you!
