Not quite rain, not quite dry. But super fun.
Kat and I, (yes this means Dan is actually writing a blog post, please excuse the spelling errors) had never met these two before their big day on October 8th as they flew in from out of town the night before to have their very small intimate wedding at M’s mother’s heritage home in Kits. What a blast this day was. Laid back, fun fun fun, and super creative. They combine two very different personalities; she is bubbly and giggly while he has a more subtle sense of humur and a genuine smile.
Enjoy some of our favs!
Oh yes, the day started with a traditional Tea Ceremony to honor the groom’s heritage. But the participants weren’t limited only to his side. Every one gave gifts, received gifts and had a lovely time. So did we!
Some pinning on and touch-ups.
The ceremony and cocktail time was all in this beautiful heritage home. Such a lovely setting with aged timber and antique furniture!
Oh yes and lots of rose petals. You are looking at everyone that was there, we felt so honored to be part of this tight and loving group of friends and family.Okay, serious stuff over! On to some fun and creative time! We checked out a favorite location for rain, as it was now raining…. a bit, then more, then a lot! Welcome to the Arthur Erickson Water Fall Building. We had only limited access this time as there was another wedding rehearsal going on. So thanks to that whole gang for letting us half-crash the party.
We started with a few “Epic” back-lit shots.
Then some beauty shots…. duhhhhhhjust look at her!Yeah, he’s handsome so we photographed him tooWe lit a couple more shots to create some pretty light as now the sky was way overcast and ugly. A whole lot of randomness this day; we were driving, we looked to our left and saw and awesome the wicked doorway of “Three Centuries Antiques“, and so we pulled over abruptly and jumped out for an impromptu photo-session. YAY for random!Then we jetted off to Stanley Park and the Fish House for the reception. BTW, if you haven’t eaten there….. GO EAT AT THE FISH HOUSE!!!! It is superbly amazingly awesome!The night went on with fantastic food, heart warming speeches, and craft time!?!?!!YES, drawings….Artwork. All the guests made personalized cards, cutouts, little pieces of art to go in a large frame at the end of the night. What a cool idea!
It was a joy and honour to be a part of M & A’s wedding day.
