Jenny and Joe-October 10, 2009

On Saturday, we had the honour in being apart of Jenny and Joe's wedding celebrations.  It was the morning of the first snowfall, with a crisp cool breeze.  The day couldn't have been more perfect.  Jenny and Joe planned a traditional native wedding, which was a first for us! We couldn't have been more thrilled to be able to experience all of the culture and love their family shares.

The ceremony started at 11 am with a beautiful civil ceremony.  The bride was stunning wearing a simple white dress, carrying a feather instead of the traditional bouquet.  After the civil ceremony, the traditional native ceremony begun.  I can't say enough good things about this wedding.

They had the traditional drumming where the bride and groom shared their first dance.  The ceremony lasted about two hours, and definitely brought a tear to my eye.  The bride and grooms love for each other was enriching.  The hall was decorated in the traditional medicine wheel colours (red, yellow, white and black).

This event was also a big one for us because not only were we wedding coordinators, but we also were caterers! Yes, that's right-we cooked! The reception was filled with approximately 90 guests (25 children) and everyone enjoyed our home cooked meal! This is not a regular item on our services, but the bride and groom wanted a yummy home cooked meal and we couldn't refuse!

Alas, here are some photo's of their unique wedding day!
