Gathered Wedding - Ally & Shaun

The Couple: Ally & Shaun

The Location: The Gathered, Kathryn Ab.

The Date: August 30th, 2020

Take me back to this beautiful summer day at the most gorgeous venue, with the sweetest couple...

To start the day; I arrived at Ally & Shaun's home to capture a few getting ready moments. Ally's dress was so unique and elegant. And as you can see in the images to follow; it suited her perfectly. She looked like a leading lady who stepped right out of a classic black and white movie.

One of my favorite moments of the day was when her dad first laid eyes on his little girl in her wedding dress. Insert blubbering Melanie here. Such a beautiful moment to capture!

Then I was off to the Gathered in Kathryn, Ab. Just a short trip North of Calgary to meet with Shaun moments before their first look! What a handsome groom!

Now it's time for Shaun to see his beautiful bride!

It's safe to say he was in awe! :)

After First Look, we walked around the breathtaking grounds at the Gathered. Filled with grassy fields, gardens galore, goats and chickens and we even had some cows come visit in the background. The were very cute and very curious and even stopped by during the ceremony to say hello!

After spending some time with A&S, it was time for the ceremony! It could not have been a more beautiful day for them. And with all the changes in plans due to Covid; they definitely deserved it!

After the incredibly romantic ceremony, it was off to start mingling with family and friends! And time for the delicious farm to table meal, provided by the amazing Gathered team. I've had the pleasure of shooting 3 weddings at their venue and I a never leave disappointed. Or hungry! #remarkable

The decor inside the tent was simple, elegant and the perfect compliment to the entire feel of the day. Just sweet, simple and full of love and intention!

After dinner we snuck off for some of my favorite photos of the day... SUNSET!

And then it was time to finish off the day with the reception. Filled with love, laughter and happiness. And one very happy newly married couple. Just as it should be!

Thank you so much for reading along. I hope you enjoyed viewing this gallery as much as I loved capturing it! -Melanie, Xx
