|that's me on the left and the bride on the right|
I mean hello! The prairies and the Rockies, with a gorg bride and groom, and the sun shining, it doesn't get much better!
Before and after the ceremony we had time to kick back and enjoy the ranch - that's H with the Best Man sitting on the front porch, ain't he the cutest!!
The main house of the ranch Hawk's Nest hasn't changed much since it was built in 1923, and looks just like you think a traditional ranch house should look woody and manly.
After the ceremony we all headed back to town and boarded a boat to take a cruise around Waterton Lake. And boy was it the perfect weather for a boat ride.
The bride and groom made sure we all got the party started.
It was a great time to hang out with the bride and the rest of the girls (and the boys too!). The captains' hats were from the stagette, and were a huge hit!
The final leg of the wedding was the reception at the former school in Waterton, a very appropriate venue as the bride is a teacher!
But, I did manage to snap some pictures ahead of time of some of the sweet details before things got underway.
I loved the wood votive holders made by the groom's family with wood from the ranch (and
And their favours of pickled beans, such a perfect choice for this couple as they are "famous" for their homemade pickles (my non-pickle eating husband devours them they are so good!) - we even broke the rules and snuck home with 2 jars ;)
I managed not to trip and fall or let loose with any too embarrassing stories, the drinks flowed and the dancing went late, a good time was had by all. We are so happy to have been able to share in their big day, so thanks guys!
