After we got home from Invermere, my fabulous second shooter Dana Cole, thanked me for helping her check “epic barn wedding” off her wedding dream list. I really couldn’t agree more. I have been looking forward to this wedding for quite some time, the thought of travel, the barn, a working ranch, a dock, Meagan’s grandmother’s dress etc etc, was really exciting for me. K2 Ranch is an honest-to-goodness working ranch and it’s not open to public weddings which made this even more special for us! The day started beautifully, the kind of day every wedding photographer dreams of, a beautiful blue sky and big puffy white clouds to tone down the brightness of the sun. After a wonderfully emotion-packed ceremony, we loved joining Meagan and Matt and their bridal party back at the lake house for some snacks, drinks, and a dress change. Oh my, what a second dress. I remember my jaw dropping and saying that I couldn’t believe I could love two dresses on the same day. Meagan definitely chose well. Matt proposed (in an elaborate scheme) on the dock of the lake and it was especially fitting to shoot some portraits there. The rest of the afternoon was spent gallivanting around the Ranch’s property, both Dana and I squealing with delight at every location. The whole vibe of the cocktail reception like something out of a movie. Fantastic food, a canoe filled with beer and Palm Bay, lively conversation and a gorgeous evening. Little did the guests know how much of a treat it would be to see the inside of the Barn set for dinner and partying. We really should have set up a camera to catch people’s reactions as they walked in. I wish there was a picture of Dana and I as we walked in, no doubt eyes wide and mouths open in awe. It’s a beautiful barn filled with so much history and they really did the space justice with their simple touches. As if this wedding couldn’t have any more, the bridal party surprised Meagan and Matt with a flash mob. Your friends don’t get together and practice and perform a choreographed dance for just anyone. They are loved so much. It seems fitting to end this little story here. I hope you enjoy the look back at a most wonderful day.
