Vanessa & Will. Hastings Lake Gardens & Yellowhead Brewery Wedding.

Yellowhead Brewery Wedding

Vanessa & Will’s wedding this July was incredible. They had a sweet ceremony at Hastings Lake Gardens and an awesome reception at Yellowhead Brewery.  I’ve been looking forward to this adorable couple’s wedding since I got to know them better at their engagement session last fall. They are so kind, down to earth and adventurous and their wedding day was romantic and fun from beginning to end.

Vanessa had been counting down the days until she became Mrs Cronin so there was a lot of joy and excitement in the air that morning. I love this moment when she opened a letter and gift from Will. Beautiful tears of joy.

Vanessa & Will’s ceremony was sweet and intimate. It was full of giggles and emotion. Vanessa was worried she would say ‘waffle wedded’ instead of ‘lawful wedded’ during the her wedding vows… she didn’t!

Vanessa and Will are outdoorsy and love being in the mountains. Whether it’s hiking, skiing or canoeing with their adopted pup Red.
