Now, we've photographed country style weddings before, but this was a new experience for us in a few ways! First, Cailyn and Sheldon's wedding took place at the Historic Reesor Ranch in Cypress Hills Provincial Park. This was our first visit, and we were amazed by the rustic atmosphere. It was perfect for a country wedding! Plus, all of their traveling wedding guests had a place to stay right on the farm!
And of course, there are all types of wedding ceremonies such as the sand ceremony, hand tying ceremony, butterfly release ceremony (which we had at our wedding!!), but this couple celebrated in pure country style with a wood branding ceremony! We thought this was so unique and tied into their wedding theme so well. It was really neat to watch, too, but boy did it smoke up the place!
It was seriously one of the coldest days in August, too, so the ceremony had to move indoors. Fortunately enough, the rain slowed long enough for us to shoot outside with the rolling hills and rustic surroundings of Reesor Ranch.
