We’re so excited to be sharing Amy and Warren’s V Lounge wedding we photographed a few weeks ago! When we first met Amy and Warren last year, we were so intrigued by their passion for scuba-diving that we barely talked about their wedding plans during their consultation! Instead of us showing them our wedding portfolio, we ended up looking at their portfolio of underwater photography of amazing sea life from their many scuba-diving travels around the world. They actually met on a scuba-diving trip in Mexico, and are now diving instructors together!
Amy and Warren are from Edmonton. They often travel to Vancouver and love it here so much that they wanted to have their wedding right in the middle of this beautiful city. All but two guests were from Alberta – how awesome is that! To showcase the city of Vancouver to all their out of town guests, location and venues for the ceremony and reception were really important to Amy and Warren. Their nuptials took place at Arthur Erickson’s Waterfall Building which hosted their intimate ceremony of about 50 people. The ceremony was conducted by the lovely Roxanne Thorton, which included a handfasting ceremony to honour Warren’s Scottish heritage. From there, guests we encouraged to walk around Granville Island and eventually catch the colourful Aqua Bus hired by the newlyweds to charter everyone across False Creek to the Yaletown station. What a cute way to give people a little taste of Vancouver!
As guests made their way to the V Lounge for the reception, we also traveled around False Creek with Amy, Warren and their maid of honour and best man for wedding party photos. We were quite lucky with the beautiful weather we had, considering March can be a very wet month! Typically we’re ok when it rains on a wedding day; there are many backup rain plans in Vancouver. But we especially wanted the rain to stay away from this day for Amy and Warren’s guests as they experienced some of the gems in Vancouver!
We find that the way wedding receptions play out often reflect the type of people the bride and groom are. In this case, super laid back and relaxed. That’s definitely how we’d describe Amy and Warren! We’re so thankful for our couples who give us the time to do a little extra near the end of the night. The V Lounge is pretty cool space, and as our first time shooting there, we were all over it!
We wish Amy and Warren the best time on their honeymoon in Honolulu! Can you guess what they’ll be doing…? Scuba-diving of course ;p
