Let me tell you the story that led up to Mike & Mercedes' perfect day
Mike and Mercedes met one faithful evening at, wait for it, Whiskey Dix.
So yes, good things can come from a girls' night out!
The story goes that Mercedes' friends dared her to use a cheesy pick up line on the first guy she saw. She quickly scanned the room, saw a tall guy wearing a Carhartt jacket, walked straight up to him and said, "Hey, why don't you take your jacket off and stay a while?"
This man was Mike. Little did he or Mercedes know that she had just met a diehard Roughriders fan from Saskatchewan and that seven short years later she would call him her husband!
Mike & Mercedes were an adventure from my first day meeting them. Their engagement session consisted of riding quads and riding away from bears, yet their wedding day was just as it ideally should be: focused on the two of them.
Their day was so perfectly planned out. Mike met Mercedes and myself at the church and after a beautiful first look, we set off for photos around the beautiful grounds in Cooks Creek until their guests started to arrive. Their wedding ceremony was beautiful, family photos followed and then off to Bel Acres to party!
Everything from the meal to the speeches was heartfelt and everyone felt the love in the room from these two beautiful souls.
