De Winton Community Hall Wedding [Roxy & Josh]

Roxy and Josh, De Winton Community Hall Wedding

Josh and Roxy are high school sweethearts who understand the value of patience. Once they finished university, moved apart and then back together again, and got a house, they decided it was time to take the next step and get married! They planned a laid back De Winton Community Hall wedding with beer coolers and lawn games to keep their guests entertained.

After their outdoor ceremony and some hiding indoors from a thunder shower, we explored the town of De Winton for some major rustic feeling. From grain elevators to canola fields, Roxy and Josh had a country wedding with the Calgary skyline visible in the background. With a handful of siblings in the wedding party to keep teasing them and some long time friends to keep them laughing, Roxy and Josh had the party vibe of the day follow them everywhere they went.

Roxy first came into my life when I photographed her best friend’s wedding six years ago. Their group of friends has been tightly knit since college so there were a lot of familiar faces from the last wedding, with one notable exception! The absence of the maid of honour on Roxy’s wedding day was bittersweet. While she missed her bestie’s wedding day, it was because she went into labour the night before! The wedding day was full of gossip among the guests… “Did the baby arrive yet?” Luckily Roxy came prepared with two best friends assigned to that role and her man of honour did a fantastic job filling both roles (including standing in the rain holding an umbrella over the bride).

Congratulations, Roxy and Josh!

I feel as though the mood of these photos doesn’t match the gangster rap being played in the house while everyone got ready!

Roxy and Josh would have loved to include their cats in the wedding day, but cats are a little tricky! Instead, the kitties were both given little bowties to wear (in red to match both Roxy and Josh’s red accents). Then they spent their time hiding from the house full of people! Roxy was at least able to pull Lucy from her lair for a few adorable photos.

Roxy surprised everyone when she left her otherwise calm and collected self behind and cried through most of the ceremony. She later thanked her man of honour for “holding her snot.”

Josh high-fived as many guests as he could as they came back down the aisle.

Roxy was prepared for her maid of honour’s impending labour and brought along a framed photo from her wedding to use in her place.

A healthy dose of harrassment from siblings always adds a nice touch!

The buttons on Roxy’s bouquet were originally from her mother’s wedding dress.

Roxy and Josh had a full house at their De Winton Community Hall wedding reception!

Their wedding day was a double celebration as it was also Roxy’s father’s birthday! He had hoped no one would notice and was embarrassed when the surprise cake came out.
