 Their beautiful wedding took place in the small town of Lyalta, Ab, where Brenda grew up on the family farm. Surrounded by close family and friends, these two quiet and humble souls pledged their lives to one another and sealed it with a kiss, covered in floating glitter. No seriously, Jared {who is a Dr. of Physics & Astronomy} paused the anticipated, "you may now kiss your bride" moment, reached behind him to his brothers and they filled his hands with gold glitter.  He turned back to Brenda gave her a huge smile, tossed the glitter high into the air and pulled his new wife in for their first kiss.

Naturally I was in picture heaven!!

The entire day was filled with joy, laughter and smiles to spare, which was exactly what I expected after their fun engagement shoot {click here to see that blog post} a month earlier. For the wedding Brenda {who is one very talented artist} worked tirelessly on all her crafty DYI projects which truly left the stamp of her heart all over their wedding.  I remember Chelsie and I walking into the reception area before anyone else was allowed in, and it immediately felt like home in there. She hand designed and built these stunning wooden photo blocks which featured pictures from her live's journeys, as part of the table decor. After a reach under your seat to see if you are the winner game was announced, some very lucky guests got to take these pieces home! 

My favourite memories of the day would have to be first...Brenda's big laugh.  It might be because she's so tiny, but her laugh is so full and big that it made me want to laugh along with her every time I heard it.  Second would be the way that Jared treated Brenda.  Every single time he interacted with her, he was gentle, he was loving and he was aware of her needs...and that's something that any women lucky enough to find should cherish! The only thing he could have improved on was his wedding dress train holding duties ;)
