I actually don’t know where to start with this post. What a day! What a BEAUTIFUL day! An emotion-filled day for all of us. You’ll remember Jeannine & Glenn from their engagement session back in May in British Columbia. And if you remember that post, you know that Glenn is Justin’s dad… my father-in-law (although we usually like to skip the “in-law” part 🙂
This day couldn’t have come quicker for the two of them. With so much hope in their future, for months they were wanting their future to be the present!! Well now, the day has come and gone… and I’m hoping these photos will help you remember how special it was, how special you are… both individually and together!
Justin & I were so grateful as to how they intentionally made each of us kids feel so special on their day. We were all involved and had our place. I’d say I’m most impressed with my talented Justin who was busy officiating the wedding, being the son of the groom, and second-shooting. I KNOW, he’s amazing right?! Even in our “busy-ness”, we didn’t want to miss out on celebrating and ‘feeling’ the day so we tried real hard to put down the camera at times to just “be” with dad and Jeannine.
We’d love nothing more than for you to enjoy this slideshow of their wedding (with a few video segments fused into it).
I love this egg Jeannine got from the Ukraine. She bought two… one I used in their engagement shoot and this beautiful one.
While Justin was hanging out with his dad at the house, I was with Jeannine at the salon.
This is Aubrey, my favourite brother-in-law… ok so he’s my only brother BUT he’s still my favourite!!
The next two shots of Justin’s are full of amazing emotion between a dad and his daughters.
So gorgeous and beaming with joy!
Minutes before the ceremony started… love it!
Let’s pause here for a funny story.
Let’s go back 5 years to when Justin and I got married. Of course dad officiated our wedding, but when he pronounced us man and wife he said: “Mr & Mrs Justin and Melanie Boudreau” (Boudreau was my maiden name). None of us noticed until someone mentioned it later and then of course we all had a big laugh about it (and we’ve never let Glenn forget it either)!
So when Glenn asked Justin to repay him the favour by officiating his wedding to Jeannine, I had my suspicions that Justin would do the same. And of course, he did.
“Let me introduce you to Mr and Mrs Glenn and Jeannine Boyd, I mean Driedger” 🙂 So fun.
Me and my two lovely twin sisters *whistles*
Here’s another great moment when Jeannine surprised Glenn with a ‘bouquet’ of wheat.
Only a few months ago Grandpa Driedger passed away, and of course Glenn was so disappointed to not have his dad with him on his special day.
His dad was a farmer and so Jeannine really wanted to have some wheat in some of the photos to remember him by. Special.
What’s a wedding without your two best friends: Heidi and Gerald!
Hmmm this looks familiar 🙂
Jeannine’s niece was looking so fierce. I loved her look!
LOVE these two moments with Glenn’s mom on the left and Jeannine’s sister on the right.
The Driedger family at their best!!
You can totally sense the love and joy from these two. bliss.
Dad & Jeannine… much love to both of you! Thanks for entrusting us in capturing all the special moments of your day. It was nothing less than a joyful celebration for you and our family!
