Chris and Mallory tied the knot on Saturday, June 26 at Mallory’s parents’ farm near Elk Point, Alberta. With their two young sons and about 50 of their closest family and friends looking on, they said their “I wills” and “I dos” and then, yes, Chris kissed his bride! It was a beautiful wedding, with tears and laughter, hugs and handshakes, small children running underfoot, lush greenery and generous sunshine. A perfect day for a wonderful couple!
Here’s the sneak preview from Chris and Mallory’s wedding ….

Decor was by I Do Wedding & Special Event Planning
Father Sam is from Ireland; I am now convinced every wedding needs an Irish priest. He was fantastic!

This cutter made the perfect backdrop for the family formals, and then a few with the bride and groom, of course!
There were some pretty cool clouds, so we did some off-camera flash techniques!
A nice gust of wind!
The flowers were by The Jungle in St. Paul, Alberta.
Mallory and Chris, thank you so much for choosing Jennifer Jacula Photography! I had a great time photographing your wedding and meeting your family and friends. I wish you the best of everything and we’ll talk to you soon!
