| Andrea & Brian | Whistler Wedding |

Whistler Wedding

Vancouver Wedding Photographers

                    We cannot rave enough about Andrea and Brian’s Whistler wedding last month!  Andrea is Dan’s brother’s wife’s sister (everyone got that..!) and Dan has known Kim (Dan’s sister-in-law) and her family for years.  It has been wonderful for me to have been getting to know them as well over the years at various family gatherings!

                    Andrea and Brian met in Australia! She was there for school, he is from Australia, and they met at a bar.  Even when Andrea’s parents went down to visit, she kept Brian under their radar.  It wasn’t until Brian’s eventual move to Vancouver, once Andrea came back from school, that made everyone realize how serious they were.  After buying an apartment downtown and settling into their careers, Brian popped the question in Japan last fall!  It didn’t take long for them to decide on Whistler being the location for the wedding.  Both Andrea and Brian are avid snowboarders and love the mountains.  Every year, they make a trip up to enjoy the fresh powder!

                    For about a week, they rented a spaciously cozy chalet in the Kadenwood neighbourhood near Creekside Village.  There, both families stayed spending time together before and after the wedding.  It was a stark change for Brian’s family who traveled from Sydney’s warm summer weather!  The chalet was also where the ceremony and stand up reception were held for them and their 60 guests.

                    The weather the day before the wedding was stunning.  Snow on the ground, but clear skies and sun all around.  The day of the weather was like a snowstorm come out of nowhere, blanketing everything in sight; we were almost snowed in!  As beautiful as it was, it was still super cold – especially for the girls when we went around Nita Lake Lodge and Whistler Village for photos….your poor feet, ladies!

                    The lovely co-ordinators at Weddings by Bluebird, Heather and Emily, did a wonderful job at staging the house and getting everyone organized as well as making the flower arrangements.  Big Mountain Rhythm provided some soulful live music during the reception while guests were treated to delicious finger food by John Ferris and his team at The Collective Kitchen.  Highlight of the night?  Probably when Brian started drinking beer out of his best man’s shoe…..and then out of Andrea’s boss’ shoe…and we have evidence ;p

                    Congrats, Andrea and Brian!  We hope you have a wonderful honeymoon on your African safari later this August!!

| Amy & Warren | The V Lounge Wedding |

The V Lounge Wedding

Vancouver Wedding Photographers

                    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!

                    Huge shout outs to Tracey Le of Mink Makeup & Hair and Carly & Chloe of Blooming Aisle Floral Design for the flowers AND the day of coordination (you go girls!)

                    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

| Kristi & Todd | Railtown Engagement Session |

Railtown Engagement Session

Vancouver Wedding Photographers

                    Today, we’re happy to be sharing Kristi and Todd’s Gastown/Railtown engagement session!  Their wedding is coming up in less than a week and we’re super excited to be shooting in this beautiful weather!

                    We first met Kristi when she was a bridesmaid at Danielle & Tony’s wedding a few years back.  This group of girls have been each other’s bridesmaids as they’ve been getting married, and now it’s Kristi and Todd’s turn this coming Sunday:)

                    We were lucky to have such an amazing evening as we chased the sun around Gastown and Railtown, finding pockets of light in alleys and through tree branches.  Kristi and Todd rocked it and after just an hour of shooting, we were all done – usually we’re in for a good 2 hours!

                    Can’t wait for their wedding on Easter Sunday!
