Stephanie & Ryan - Married!

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

It's the McNally's in the Valley!!!

Sherry and I had a great time hanging out with Stephanie and Ryan on their special day a couple weeks ago! We had the privilege of shooting formal portraits out at Over The Hill Orchard, which, overlooks the beautiful valley just outside of Lumsden. It was hot and sunny day, which a touch of a breeze at the top of the hill. Sometimes, we would get lucky and the clouds would cover the sun for just a few moments. Other times, we'd get all set up for a gorgeous shot and the sun would come blaring through again. Steph and Ryan were so understanding about the weather, and just like during their engagement session, were up to trying anything. We even took a little hike down to the bottom of the valley to see what we could find.

After their ceremony in the basement of the Lumsden hall, Ryan and Stephanie decided to exchange private vows read just between the two of them at the top of the valley. It was a small, intimate moment on their wedding day that I'm sure they will remember forever. The reception was held in the upstairs of the Lumsden hall, one of my favourite places for wedding receptions! We celebrated the new couple with delicious food, fun games and entertaining speeches. Including one very special surprise song performed by Stephanies two sisters. The night came to a close for Sherry and I just before 9 after capturing some lovely first dances. Sherry was able to get some great arial shots from the upper level of the hall as I captured the magic on the dance floor.

All in all, it was an amazing day and such a beautiful wedding. Stephanie and Ryan deserve nothing but the best in their future and I can't wait to see how the rest of their love story unfolds. Thank you for having Sherry and I as your photographers. And thanks to Sherry for tagging along with me in the valley!
