It may have rained ALL day at Dena & Trent’s wedding, but Dena radiates sunshine and even the most miserable day didn’t stop Dena & Trent from fully embracing what the day was and having a pile of fun in the process. Dena is Andrew’s cousin and we knew this wedding was going to be a good one … and it really was!!
When we packed up to head to Saskatoon Friday morning the forecast was calling for mostly sunny & 23 degrees….. by Saturday morning the clouds had settled in and the steady rain didn’t let up until just before Dena & Trent took off for their honeymoon. Everything from the ceremony to the reception had been planned for outdoors & everyone had been working hard making the most beautiful benches and tables, finding a great old piano to have outdoors etc. When we stopped by the location Friday we could not believe how stunning everything was and the attention to detail. By Saturday morning there was a crew of family and friends working together to empty out & convert Dena’s dads potato shed on the property to move the reception indoors. Andrew & I had been in the shed Friday and could not believe the transformation that took place in no time. It was mentioned in the speeches that having the reception in a potato shed was not plan b or plan c, it was more like plan z!!! Someone also was able to round up boxes of ponchos for the guests to wear during the ceremony so that could still go forward outdoors as planned. It was quite a sight seeing all the guests walking from the shelter of the shed through the winding path over to the ceremony location in their ponchos!!
Not only were Dena & Trent such amazing sports but their entire wedding party was too. What could have been the most difficult conditions to shoot in turned out to be such a fun adventure because of the attitude of this group!! Not only was Dena willing to traipse through the muddy grass to change up locations, she just hiked up her dress and ran through, kicking up mud and doing it all with the biggest grin on her face. Don’t be fooled by the pictures with no umbrella either …. the rain was really coming down! All in all, this was a day to remember with this great couple! As I work my way through the photos there are so many memories from the day that make me smile! Thank you Dena & Trent for making the day as amazing as it was.
