Janelle & Daniel’s beautiful beach themed Balzac wedding
Daniel is my younger brothers age and went to school with him, and they became good friends. Daniel’s parents Tracy and Darcy are probably the wildest people you’ll ever meet, constantly having fun get togethers and going on cruises! Our family has gone on a few cruises with the Steinman family to Mexico, and that’s how our families became close.
Janelle was also the same age as my younger brother Jeff and went to school with both Jeff and Dan! Janelle’s family had moved from Saskatchewan to Alberta and she was the new girl at their school. Janelle and Jeff became friends which lead to our families becoming good friends, having dinners at each others places. Jeff and Janelle even went to their high school grad together. Janelle and Dan knew of each other in high school but didn’t hang out… Fast forward a few years down the road, when Janelle and Dan were both helping our family brand calves at our farm. Dan remarked to his friend Bryson “When did Janelle get so hot?” and from there he asked her out on a date and the rest is history! Their engagement session was just a few months ago, You can view their Cochrane engagement session here!
Janelle & Dan’s wedding was special to me in a lot of ways! I believe that the summer they reunited at our family branding was also the summer that I started my photography business. Their marriage brings together two fabulous families who are very dear to my heart– I always joked it will be more convenient now for gatherings at Christmas time if ‘they get married’ — luckily, they did!!! Their wedding day was full of sweet sentiments to each other and hilarious speeches!! Janelle and Dan wanted to feature a lot of local businesses for their wedding, including Daniels families favorite restaurant Paros (also one of my all time faves too!). It was a turquoise and coral beach themed Balzac wedding complete with a sparkler send off at the end of the night!

And as the ceremony started, it started to drizzle!
And then the rain really started to come down just as the ceremony was ending!
The brides family gifted Janelle & Dan a John Deere combine and grain cart in a shadow box. As Gloria said, “These two pieces of equipment have to work together to achieve their goals, just like you will have to do in your marriage.”
And a sparkler send off at 10pm!
