We got so lucky for Haley and Clinton’s country wedding in Olds, Alberta – it was raining almost every day before this, but on this very special day, the sun broke through and it lit up the day. Country weddings are some of our favorite weddings – the laid back, easy-going nature of the day, the welcoming people that feel like you’ve known forever, and that’s exactly how Haley & Clinton’s wedding was.
Below is just a sample of their day, to see the whole gallery click here.

Your top 3 best moments and why:
The ceremony: it was so beautiful and truly an amazing ceremony surrounded by loved ones
Mom getting lost: although it was stressful in the moment we have a funny story to tell that it wasn’t the bridal party that was late, it was the mother of the bride!!
The people: we are so blessed with everyone that came to support and share our special day with us. we wouldn’t be who we are without them
Wedding song, explain choice for song:
Pushing Up Daisies by Brothers Osbourne: we wanted something we hadn’t heard of and we both like this band, there are parts we really relate to (for example “you turned a stubborn southern boy into a believer” and we always say “we are in this until we are pushing up daisies”
Your top 3 favorite wedding details (cake, flowers, dress, band, etc.) and why:
Cake and Cake cutting knife! our sister did all the baking for us and made the inspiration come to life and the knife is a one of a kind made for us by a loving family.
Flowers: my flowers were everything I wanted and more for the bouquets and the flowers on the centerpieces were from Costco so it shows that you don’t have to spend much to make a centerpiece beautiful.
Table honoring our loved ones: it was really important to us that we remembered and honored our grandparents and honor our parents. we both have strong relationships with our families so we thought that it was important to show that.
Any advice to those that are planning their wedding?
Just have fun. Try not to stress, you don’t have to break the bank to make something beautiful. Ask for help.
DONT FORGET TO GIVE THANK YOU CARDS OUT AND ENSURE YOU WRITE OUT WHAT PEOPLE GAVE YOU AS A GIFT!!! People really appreciate this.
We went to Cancun and lounged at the Barcelo Maya!
