Jen + Allan’s Wedding | Vernon + Armstrong

I always say that I cry at every wedding I attend, even the ones that I photograph. I usually get misty at some point during the speeches and maybe the vows. I wasn’t expecting to almost sob when Jen and Allan’s oldest daughter saw her dad before the ceremony, ran into his arms Β and yelled “Happy Wedding Day Daddy!!!” Yep, I needed a tissue after that.

The ceremony site, Mackie Lake house in Vernon BC http://www.mackiehouse.ca/ an absolute dream to photograph

The girls sneaking a peek at the ceremony before it started

Allan and his adorable flowergirl (and Daughter!)

I like to think that the men usually keep their sunglasses on so that we don’t see them crying

The new Mr. and Mrs. Phelan!

Jen’s fab siblings! Big shout out to the both of them for being very helpful whenever I had a question πŸ™‚

Watching Jen try and get into this car was hilarious…note the bars on the inside of the car….

During the time that we should have been taking photos, it was pouring. Not just a little bit of rain, I mean POURING. So we went inside for a few bevys and a break. Note that a mommy’s job is never done, even when she is a bride πŸ˜›

Once that very large cloud passed us we had some beautiful bright blue sky!

I love a bride in Cowboy Boots.

And then as soon as the reception started…..this happened…

After dinner we snuck out to take more photos that we couldn’t get due to the rain

Are they not adorable?

Congratulations to a great couple, and new friends πŸ™‚
