Cochrane Wedding Photographer | Cochrane Ranchehouse

There’s something so incredible about the wedding of high school sweethearts. Matt & Jenna spent their growing up years together and have already seen so much of life together. Their wedding day was such a celebration of the love they have shared thus far, as well as a blessing for their future. Their family surrounded them as they made vows to one another at the beautiful Cochrane Ranchehouse, and the emotion felt by everyone was evident by the tears and laughter.

The ceremony had to be moved inside due to rain, but then the sun came out and we explored the grounds taking photos and blowing glitter with their awesome bridal party!

One of my favourite things about being a wedding photographer is listening to the toasts and speeches at the wedding reception. It’s so great to hear all the memories and thoughts about the bride and groom both together and separately as children. I always tear up at some point, but at this wedding I was on the verge of blubbering like a baby during one of the groomsmen’s toasts to the groom. He recounted his school days, when Matt was one of the only people to show kindness and befriend him. Call me a sap if you want but that is the kind of story that I hope will be told about my own sons on each of their wedding days. And that is why I love my clients so much – they are kind, genuine people that will love each other well and will build strong marriages and families.

Matt & Jenna – you are absolutely incredible people and I’ve been so blessed to have gotten to know you both this year. I had such an amazing time capturing your wedding and meeting the people closest to you. My wish for you both is that your deep friendship would continue to grow stronger with each passing year, and that your love would inspire everyone around you. Much love – Carlin
