Heather and Rex's Winnipeg Wedding
Heather and Rex's beautiful wedding took place in Winnipeg, Manitoba and on the day of their 10th anniversary! How amazing is that?! I met up in the morning with Heather, her lovely bridesmaids, and the mothers of both bride and groom at the Fort Garry Hotel while the girls had their hair and makeup done. We lucked out with some pretty amazing weather that day despite some heavy rain the night before. After bride and groom were all ready, we met at Upper Fort Garry for the first look and the start of the wedding party portraits.
Heather and Rex chose Aspire Studios for a part of their wedding party portraits. Heather also had a vision of having some of the wedding portraits take place in and around the exchange district. However, due to the damp conditions on the streets from the nights rain before we opted to expand our time at Aspire Studios. Following the studio portraits they had a table reserved at Across the Board game cafe. They were able to kick back and relax for an hour or so with their wedding party, have a drink or two and play some board games before the ceremony.
The Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art was the venue for their ceremony and reception. The ceremony took place on the beautiful rooftop terrace and everything ran smoothly with coordination from Amanda Douglas Events. Commissioned by Sheryl Hunnie and filled with personal touches from the bride and groom that truly made their ceremony unique.
The reception started off with a performance by Japanese drumming group, Fubuki Daiko, of which Rex is a member and performed flawlessly at his own wedding! This spectacular drumming performance was followed by an exciting Lion dance! The rest of the reception was filled with heartfelt speeches, the traditional cake cutting, mother-bride, groom-mother dances, and special dances including their grandmothers. It was a truly lovely and unique wedding. Wishing these two a lifetime full of love and happiness!
