Melanie & Blake’s wedding day finally arrived on September 22nd in Prince George BC. We have built up a great relationship with them over the past year – first their session with their beautiful baby daughter Leighton, then their Engagement Session at Cottonwood Island Park, then a Bridal Session with Melanie, and of course with lots of discussions about their amazing wedding plans along the way. So it was very exciting to finally meet them at the church for the rehearsal, and of course then again for their wedding day.
Shauna met the girls at Melanie’s place, where Jenni from Shear Intensity was doing the girl’s hair. From there it was over to the Core Salon for makeup, and then back to the house for the finishing touches and putting on Melanie’s intricate lace wedding dress – from the Gallery Bridal Boutique – before hopping into the limo for a short cruise around town before the ceremony.
Dan met the guy’s out at Blake’s parents house where they were getting ready. It was a relaxing morning with lots of laughs, food, and drinks. The guys had their own limo as well, and headed down to St. Michaels Church for the ceremony.
After the ceremony it was into the limo’s once again and over to Fort George Park for a mixture of family, bridal party, and newlywed photos. The fall leaves made for a beautiful background!
From the park it was on to UNBC for some more bridal party and newlywed photos, before heading up to the Hart Community Center for the wedding reception.
The Hart Community Center is one of the top wedding reception locations in Prince George. What an amazing job they do on every aspect of the reception. Everything was awesome – the decorations, the lighting, and the food! And we were happy to see Steve from the PG Entertainment Group would be the DJ for the night.
Great people, great food, and a whole lot of fun. Congratulations once again to Blake and Melanie on your perfect wedding day!

There are a number of wedding locations in Prince George BC, and we had heard that the Hart Community Centre was one of the best wedding reception venue’s in town. However we had not attended a wedding there until this past weekend. What an amazing sight as you walk through the main doors into the reception hall. There were trees with twinkle lights all around the outer edges of the room, chandeliers and strings of crystals hanging from the ceiling along with sails of tulle and white fabric draped across the entire ceiling! And there was a lounge area with pillows on the side of the room between the Drinks Bar and the Candy Bar.
We were happy with the venue, and it wasn’t even dinner time yet. But we could smell the food outside before we even entered, so we were anxiously awaiting the meal. It was certainly worth waiting for. The wedding buffet dinner was glorious! There was Jack Daniel’s fall-off-the-bone ribs, roast beef, yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, perogies (pretty sure they were home-made), a variety of veggies, and a large selection of delicious salads. And then there was the dessert bar. It was about three tables long with more desserts than we have ever seen. We were only guests at our first wedding here, so we didn’t take any photos of the food, but we did take some photos of the decor to share at least.
We have added some photos from our September wedding below, including a few photos of the amazing buffet – that was just as good the second time around! Here’s the link to the full wedding post if you are interested in that as well.
You can click here to view the Hart Community Centre’s Website. They are located on Austin Road in Prince George, BC. This venue books up fast, so much like wedding photography, it is best to book early to ensure your date is available (as soon as you have set your wedding date)
