Minimalist Summer Wedding at the Lake

April 2, 2024 BY: Amy

“Our love story began at a mutual friend’s 21st birthday party. Little did we know that this chance encounter would change our lives forever. McKinley claims that from that day forward, he knew he was in love. Fate, however, had its own plans, and it wasn’t until five years later that McKinley had the opportunity to reach out. Taking a shot, we reconnected and our love blossomed. Now, we have a beautiful family with two adorable children, Mavryk and Hudsyn. Mavryk, a six-year-old bundle of energy, finds his passion in hockey during the winter and enjoys boating and lacrosse in the summer. Our fearless two-year-old, Hudsyn is a true water enthusiast, loving every moment spent near the waves. A day on the boat with cranked tunes is the epitome of joy for our family. On September 2nd, 2023, we tied the knot at our favourite place—the lake. Our wedding was a minimalist dream come true, perfectly capturing our vision and far exceeding our expectations. It was an intimate affair, filled with love and cherished moments. Our photographer, Schae, was an absolute delight. With an evening wedding and a tight schedule, there wasn’t much allocated time for photos. However, Schae’s easy-going nature and expertise made the our whole experience seem effortless. She followed us throughout the day, gently guiding us when needed but allowing our natural chemistry to shine through. The resulting photos are breathtaking, capturing our genuine essence and creating memories that will last us a lifetime. Our journey together is a testament to the power of love, the beauty of adventure, and the cherished moments that make life truly remarkable.”
