Megan & Bill SFU Diamond Alumni Wedding

I have another delightful wedding to share today!

Megan & Bill were married at the Diamond Alumni Centre on Burnaby mountain this past July. Megan is a PhD student and Bill is a teacher so this was the perfect setting for this academic duo. They had personalized vows and a good friend to officiate the wedding which ensured laughs all round. In fact, being around these two makes it impossible not to smile! Megan's smile is definitely contagious! 

How amazing is her dress from https://www.sposawedding.ca/!?! It was made for twirling as you can see!!

John & Serena's Vancouver condo wedding

When I first spoke with Serena on the phone, I became immediately excited as I realized she was a fellow Brit! Then when I met with John and Serena, I knew I had to shoot their wedding!! We shared the same love for Vancouver and dogs, so I knew it was a match made in photography heaven. They're easy going and nothing could bring them down on their wedding day- Serena had the biggest smile on her face the entire day. It was great! 

John and Serna decided to get married in the garden of their condo building. Now this sounds kind of unusual for a wedding venue (a first for me) but when you see how gorgeous the garden is, I'm sure you'll understand their decision. Luckily, some of the blossom trees were in full bloom and the weather was amazing! 

John got ready in their apartment, whilst Serena stayed with their best man, Lisa and then she put her dress on in the building managers office. Which was another first for me, a bride getting ready in one end of the room whilst Sharon was working at her desk on the other. After the wedding ceremony, we took some shots in the garden and on their neighbours balcony then they headed to Tapshack (their local pub) for some drinks and grub. This was such a fun wedding, my face hurt from laughing and smiling. I've put together a few highlights of their wedding story..

Kyle & Patti's intimate Seasons in the Park Wedding

On March 18th, it stopped raining, the clouds parted and a little sunshine blessed Vancouver with it's rays. Just in time for Patti and Kyle to get married!

It was a fairly intimate wedding with a total of 30 guests and took place at Seasons in the Park. Patti looked gorgeous in her 50s inspired bridal outfit- as she got ready we both gushed about the tv show MAD MEN. So I can see where she got her inspiration. For the cakes/table decor and flowers, Patti and her friends/family had all pitched in and made themselves. I sampled those cupcakes and they were sooo yummy!

Jacquelyn & Brian's Gastown wedding

So I kicked off 2017 weddings with this little gem of a wedding. Jacquelyn and Brian got married on the 15th of January at The Diamond in Gastown. It's my first time shooting at this venue, and I was kinda in love with it, it's an intimate space with beautiful brick walls and window light. 

J&B had their first look at The Landing, which is an office building, but its where they first met so it was very fitting. Fortunately, The Landing has this awesome big arch window which served as a really beautiful backdrop for this occasion. 

I had so much fun hanging out with these two and their family for the day, lots of laughter and tears and some serious kick ass moves on the dance floor..from the dads of course!!
