Everyone seemed to be either family or a friend that is like family at this 'sea meets prairies' wedding! With Sophia hailing from the west coast and Duncan from Saskatchewan, these two met and live in the middle in Alberta, but traveled to beautiful Stanley Park to say their vows and celebrate. They brought their loved ones together at the Vancouver Rowing Club for a gorgeous day filled with love and laughter.
Sophia wore a gorgeous low-back gown, that looked so elegant against nature's back drop of ocean, trees, and sky. The bridesmaids carried both the nautical and prairie theme wearing navy dresses and carrying bouquets of beautiful bright sunflowers. Duncan and the groomsmen looked dapper in their suits and wore them so well even in the heat! Duncan's matched extra well with the huge grin he wore every time he looked at his bride. These two make such a great pair and we wish them all the best as they take on the world together!
Since we love adventures over to the island, we were already excited to head out to Parksville to capture Rhiannon & James' big day, but after some back and forth communication with these two, we couldn't wait to spend the day with them. They were so kind and sweet! Just before the ceremony, we walked the grounds of the beautiful Tigh Na Mara Resort that sits right above the seemingly never-ending Rathtrevor Beach.
The weather was perfect, the scenery beautiful. The sky gave us that amazing just-about-to-storm look, and just as we expected, Rhiannon & James were such a joy to spend the day with. The ladies looked flawless in their shades of pink and grey, while the guys looked sharp in blue. The four flower girls looked ever so sweet in tutus and flower headbands, and the two little ring bearers so dapper.
Between the ceremony and reception we spent time with the bridal party on the beach and later, atop Little Mountain. We have really been looking forward to sharing this one. Rhiannon &...
We packed our bags and headed into the interior of BC. Just outside of Kamloops, we headed upwards to Sun Peaks Resort. It felt like a secret village nestled between mountains The village area could be likened to Whistler [Or for those of you in Ontario, Blue Mountain)
Mia & Isaac | Gatzke Orchard in Oyama, British Columbia
Mia & Isaac's outdoor wedding at Gatzke Orchard was fun, bright, and intimate. We captured some fun photos in the orchards and surrounding environment. As the sun set, everyone enjoyed drinks, dancing, and conversation, celebrating a day to be marked in Mia & Isaac's memories forever.
This bride and groom had the entire wedding party in Converse shoes. Guys and girls both! Now we have seen some groomsmen in Chucks before, but Isaac and Mia took it to the next level with personalized, graffiti kicks! The groomsmen all received personalized hatchets from Isaac, and Mia's bridesmaids all received personalized accessories, and a handkerchief that she specified was for 'happy tears only'. The wedding decor included some absolutely beautiful bohemian-style dream catchers handmade by the mother of the bride, an orchard full of cherries ripe and ready to eat right from the tree, a cowbell, and not to mention the stunning view of Lake Countr...
