Cody and Nicole’s gorgeous rustic summer wedding was full of so many great moments! From our arrival time, the Ruzika and Woodbury families were nothing but kind and welcoming! Watching Nicole’s mom Shannon help her get into her wedding dress was so emotional… after the wedding Nicole would be moving to live with Cody…obviously right? But not just down the gravel road or to another community…TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. To Indiana…in the USA. So those little moments in the upstairs bedroom, fastening buttons and holding in tears were a little more than just doing up a dress. Watching her come down the stairs in the house that she’s lived in for almost ever and seeing her dad Gord look at his little girl all ready to be given away was a tearjerker too. Even her bridesmaids; Janelle, Halley, Reale, Cayla and Alli were choked up at the sight of Nicole!
These ladies were the perfect choice to stand for Nicole on her wedding day! And look at them…they’re all so beautiful!

The wee little flower girl Hattie and ring bearer Brayden realized that all eyes were on them during their walk to the front of the church 😂
The Ruzika Family raises Percheron horses, so after the ceremony, Nicole, Cody and their wedding party caught a ride with some heavy horses!
Cody’s groomsmen Chase, Connor (not with a K), Kyle, Neal and Kent, were such good sports during photos! They came all the way from Indiana to stand up for their pal and they all rocked their Canadian socks like nobody’s business!
Budding Ideas in Killiam did such an beautiful job on the wedding bouquets!!
This is one of my favourite photo sets from our wedding party portrait time!! Janelle and Nicole’s dads are cousins. They’ve grown up their whole lives together, pretty much lived at each other’s houses. They used to convince people that they were twins although they look nothing alike!!
With all the pressure of the day disappearing, Cody and Nicole had some time to just be with each other…and the photos are gorgeous!

Nicole’s coworkers presented her with this fancy schmancy bib to protect her wedding dress during dinner!
Best man Chase had a TON of cue cards for his speech and cracked us all up!
This ferocious beast has made it’s rounds through different horse barns and was presented to the couple 😂
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house watching Gord and his girl dance their father-daughter dance ❤️
Kelly got some dancing in too with her boy!
Thank you so much Nicole and Cody for choosing me to be a part of your wedding day and for making my team feel so welcome!
A huge thank you to the Central Alberta Wedding Vendors that were a part of this amazing day!
