Cara and Nate’s Lumber Exchange wedding – lovely, joyous, warm, delightful. Many Canadian accents mixed with raucous Iowan ones.
Manitoba doesn’t have an official motto, (I’m sure, being too stoic to have to crow about itself) But I stumbled upon the motto for British Columbia – “splendor without diminishment.” Seems like a fitting summary for such a splendid couple.
In the spring Cara and Nate went through their favorite
parks for engagement photos.
It was only the start of bringing their shared life into their wedding and photos – Cara and Nate share so many amazing things together – families that laugh, an adorable little pup, and a house.
