In 2016 the most devastating thing happened not only to the Manitoba Wedding industry but, more importantly, to the Belanger family. You see, Tammy & Rob owned a gorgeous, rustic, wedding venue based in the Interlake just outside of Selkirk, Manitoba and it with all of it’s priceless antiques burned in a horrible fire.
“Out of all these ashes beauty will rise”
In 2017, to the delight of everyone, Tammy & Rob rebuilt Hawthorn Estates in to the majestic structure we see today and we were honored to have Kristine & Kurtis be our first couple to bring us in to this space. You see, we live across from Kurtis’s parents and I (Chantelle) went to school with some of Kurtis’s cousins. And it felt like a very full circle experience.
The day started out moody, we were preparing for an indoor ceremony but as always the universe delivered some glorious sun just in time for the ceremony! The day was filled with fun, and laughter, and family. As we ended off the night Mother Nature decided to give us one heck of a show by showcasing the most red sky we have EVER seen (you’ll see below) This image is almost completely straight out of our camera. We hope you enjoy every detail of this gorgeous day!
