Jenna + Ryan's Elkwater Wedding Proposal

We recently photographed Jenna and Ryan's wedding in Elkwater, and it was every bit as perfect as their engagement session last summer.

They invited me out to their farm near Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park where they told me their endearing wedding proposal story. Initially, Ryan thought about having a photographer capture the proposal, but opted for a private and more intimate proposal. Luckily, we went on an excursion around their farmland to the very spot where Ryan popped the question and took a few shots to replay the moment!

On the day of the proposal, he told Jenna that one of the cows got out and needed her help to find it. They jumped on the ATV and off they went. As they drove through the picturesque landscape of their cypress hills acreage, Jenna unknowingly searched for this imaginary livestock. Once they reached the edge of the coulees, they peered out to see nothing but the beautiful view... and Ryan down on one knee.

And that's where their wedding journey began. We will share more about that in another blog post.

Adam + Chelsea's Elkwater Engagement | Cypress Hills Wedding Photographer

Adam and Chelsea have a very romantic tie to Elkwater in Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park. This happens to be where Adam proposed to his future bride and where these two have decided to begin their forever. 

Luckily, we were able to get together early this year to photograph their engagement photos in the foggy winter weather at the same park. Although we have fairly mild weather in this corner of Alberta, we still had a bit of festive snow on the ground and found a fire already going near the snow hill where these two cuddled up before heading toward the lake.

Chelsea showed her crafty side with these amazing signs and their parents found the most perfect ring box for their wedding. We cannot wait to see what these two have planned for their big day.
