Having met when they were 15, and dating for the past 9 years, Justen and Stephanie’s love is one for the story books.
Meeting for the first time on Kal Beach for the Canada Day fireworks, they have been inseparable ever since. Guests during the reception, spoke of their contagious love for one another. Telling stories of how Stephanie always makes sure she is home when Justen gets home from work, love notes that they leave each other and how their own love has helped mutual friends meet and start their own love story too. They have brought a number of couples together!
Their Wedding day, started with Justen getting ready at Stephanie’s parents house and all the girls getting ready at the ever lovely Sparkling Hill Resort and Spa.
The boys were gifted with engraved lighters and the girls received the most beautifully engraved pendants (that they all adorned for the Wedding) and earrings.
There was so much love present among friends and family that it made the day so joyous!
For their First look, we used a beautiful little gully near sparkling hill and minus all the snakes that we saw slithering on the rocks that appeared to be going into hibernation mode, it was the perfect moment. They were both so excited to see each and get their celebration started. Justen’s face, when he saw Stephanie for the first, time says it all. He loves his girl with such a passion and love that it’s inspiring.
The barn at Lone Pine Ranch was also something out of a Wedding Magazine. So much love was poured into the little details and décor; from the mother of the bride creating all the florals and center pieces to the homemade raspberry jam and bottles of home made wine that went home with guests as parting celebratory gifts.
There was so much more I could say about this day, but I just want to say how thankful I am that Kate and I got to spend it with such an amazing group of people!
A big thank you to Dee and Gina at Lone Pine Ranch for bringing such an amazing venue back to life. It’s an absolutely gorgeous location for a Wedding!
