I have been looking forward to Lorraine & Tyrone's wedding since I spoke to them on the phone in 2018, they are the kind of couple who you like immediately and can't wait to see their wedding come together. That's right 2018! To say we have all been looking forward to their day would be an understatement. We have been cheering & keeping fingers crossed for these high school sweethearts hoping they would get to have their day with their loved ones in the mountains and it finally joyfully happened this week-end. As we drove into Field and spotted a black bear we knew their wedding was going to be magical. We spotted a mama bear & her cubs, an owl & her owlet, a moose, and a loon swimming while his mate nested along the waters with their babies. 

Lorraine & Tyrone's day was filled with so much laughter & love and dancing outside amongst the mountains. After almost 14 years of love & dedication they made their commitment official by becoming Mr & Mrs. It was an absolutely perfect day! 

My favourite was getting to witness the personal ceremony they created with Barbara Parker that honoured their family traditions while creating something personal to them.

I have so much excitement for Lorraine & Tyrone's marriage after getting to witness just a tiny bit of how they handled the ups & downs of planning a wedding during an unexpected pandemic with patience, kindness & grace.   

In an absolute genius move Lorraine & Tyrone went right into their first dance after they were pronounced husband & wife. It felt so happy and the perfect way to celebrate!

This photo is one of my favourites that I took that day because I love the story it tells of officially becoming Mr & Mrs with the new shiny wedding ring and the absolute joy on Lorraine's face to be married to her love.

 After the ceremony Lorraine & Tyrone walked back to their cabin and broke out in an impromptu dance along the way.
