Welcome to the third installment in our series of scholastic articles about our neighbors to the North which we have lovingly titled: Canadian Couples and their Crazy Awesome Canuckery.

Allow us to bring you up to speed on the history of our extensive scientific research: We don’t remember exactly how it happened, but somehow a super awesome couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (which, by the way, is SUPER fun to say so we would highly recommend looking for creative ways to fit that into your everyday vocabulary. You’re welcome.) found our work and decided to book us to shoot their Palm Springs wedding a few years ago. Since then, we have been booked by two other couples from Saskatoon to shoot their Palm Springs weddings.

In our last installment we discussed how our experience with Danya + Trevor unequivocally proved that the stereotype that Canadians are super nice is absolutely true. After further study of Tanya + Brett’s Palm Springs wedding a full year later, we are proud to report that our conclusion remains true. Our Canadian couples and all of their friends/family and other guests are some of the nicest people we have ever met and we genuinely believe that the only conclusion to be drawn is that Saskatoon is filled to the brim with the nicest people on the planet.

To summarize our findings, we had a great time shooting with Tanya + Brett and their friends/family at their small Palm Springs Wedding… and now we kind of want to live in Saskatoon. :)

Ok, so..we can’t decide on which gorgeous model/actress Teresa looks like…but these two should definitely have their own sitcom. It would be about a couple of crazy kids who love Disney, tea, and running for good causes while navigating this kooky thing we call life. We would call it Tea Cups and Jogging (brought to you by Disney? hint hint). It is a hit and you know it! They also had their first date on our (Marianne + Joe’s) wedding day..so we are all pretty much meant to be best friends. Oh yeah, and here are some photos. Enjoy!

Warning: Long post with lots of photos ahead!!

We cannot express how fun and cool Laura and Chris’ wedding was to shoot! We knew the wedding would be a blast as soon as they let us know that it was a fiesta themed event. They picked the theme because when they met they were both working at Mexican Restaurants in Manhattan and they met at their favorite Mexican restaurant! They also had two of the most epic reception surprises we have seen! since Chris had sang at many of their guests weddings, some of their guests and bridal party sang to the two of them! The song was “A few of our favorite Mann things”…and it was amazing. The favorite “thing,” of course, being Laura. Chris and Laura also collected all their guests favorite songs on the RSVP cards and made a MASSIVE mix of all of their favorites to end the night! The dance floor was at full capacity!

So check out the photos of all the awesomeness that is Laura and Chris. :)
