When Jason and Chelsie got up to the podium to express their gratitude to their family and friends, Jason talked for a bit about how privileged he and Cheslie felt for the life that they have been able to live. These two understand that gratitude is an intentional way of living; not just a bookend on a wonderful day of celebration.
I mention this, because it’s not often that a speech from the bridal couple makes me stop and think about my own life. I have much to be grateful for as well. Much of it has to do with the fact that my camera gives me opportunities to meet people, and go places that I would never otherwise get access to. I show up on a wedding to tell other people’s stories, but in the process, I get to add people to my life that enrich my own story.
The ceremony was held at Greystone Bed and Breakfast, which is just a few kilometers west of Devon, Alberta.
We also stopped at the Edmonton Corn Maze. I have never actually been in a corn maze before (is that weird?), but I had always thought that it would make an interesting spot for portraits. Turns out I was right!
