Dan and I had the sincere pleasure of photographing Michelle and Nolan’s wedding two weekends ago! We met with them earlier this summer, and instantly got along. We loved the vibe that Michelle and Nolan gave us when we met them – super chill and easy going! That’s what made their wedding so great; no schedule set in stone, no events every 10 minutes, everything was so simple and laid back that we felt a bit guilty for hanging out with them and their guests!
Michelle and Nolan are also CAT people! Bonus points! Lol! We got to meet one of their kitties at their downtown apartment, and if we had the time, we would have spent all day talking cats!
It was just the four of us hanging out in Yaletown for their photos before their ceremony and reception at Brix Restaurant. It was so easy to photograph Michelle and Nolan, and here are some of our favorites!
We met Michelle at her and Nolan’s apartment, and they had a great little solarium with amazing light shining through. Michelle looks so great here! We planned a little staged “first meet” in the lobby of their apartment. This is where they first met… like ever, in the elevator! Love it!The lobby was so chic that we started off right then and there for creatives!Then onward we went through Yaletown and it’s brick buildings. Played with angles on this structure by the sea wall….If you can’t quite tell, they’re making faces at each other. Kids at heart!Beautiful at the Roundhouse!We can’t get over how awesome Brix is as a venue. Dan and I started to seriously think about switching our venue for our wedding, but our guest list is just too big…so we sorta lived vicariously through Michelle and Nolan’s wedding…! We lit some shots to add a bit of drama for their ceremony entrance…that brick corridor is wicked! We loved how they walked in together, arm in arm!Cocktail time! After a delicious dinner, a few speeches were made. Michelle and her brother listening to some some of them!First dance!It was an awesome day in the sun in Yaletown celebrating Michelle and Nolan’s vows to each other. A simple and intimate wedding it was, and it was perfect.
We wish you guys the best!
