UBC Alumni Centre Wedding: Jolayne + Weston

UBC Alumni Centre Wedding

So what can we say? We are just a tad behind in blogging and when I say a tad I mean like months maybe even a year.

Anyways we're doing it now and we are starting it off with Jolayne and Weston's UBC Alumni Centre wedding from March. This was the second time we had photographed one of the Whitmarsh sisters and we were so excited to connect with their family and friends again. Jolayne got ready at her parent's home in Brookswood surrounded by her closest friends and family. Let me just say, we LOVE Jolayne and Weston, they are such a sweet, happy and fun couple to be around. After getting ready we headed to their ceremony at South Delta Baptist Church where they made it official with tons of family and friends supporting them and this new journey as husband and wife.

We then made our way to the Centennial Beach/Dyke area for some bridal party photos. The weather was amazing for being the middle of March and dare I say, I wasn't even cold (I'm an always-cold type of person). We loved getting to hang out with their bridal party as we knew some of the girls from Tana and Chad's wedding which we photographed last year! 

We continued our roadtrip onwards to the reception venue at UBC Alumni Centre where we took more photos on the ground of the university because it's just so gorgeous there. Jolayne and Weston celebrated all night long with their friends and family before an adorable bubble filled exit! It may be months later but Jolayne and Weston, thank you for choosing us to capture your big day! 

Golden Eagle Golf Course Wedding: Melanie & Paul

Melanie & Paul Golden Eagle Golf Course Wedding

Before we met with Paul and Melanie for their wedding I had met long before. I attended high school with Paul at Fleetwood Park Secondary and spent 5 years attending classes together. Melanie and I met at our church youth group and spent years knowing each other at summer camps and weekly hangouts, but not talking too much! 

Fast forward almost 10 years after graduation and Paul sent a message to me on Facebook asking if I would be interested in photographing their wedding! Being able to see old friends come together in marriage was a joy to be a part of. 

The wedding day was a hot one! Luckily for their bridal portraits, we were able to hop into a helicopter (thanks to Sky Helicopters!!) to a snowy mountaintop. This was Paul and Melanie's first time in a chopper which made the experience even better, and their faces as we flew over rivers and lakes was priceless. With only a few minutes up on the mountaintop we went to work, and these guys were amazing. So relaxed and calm the whole day, they really made the day that much more enjoyable. Their pictures turned out amazing as a result of this! 

Overall, great couple, great day, and great images to look back on. Thanks to all the amazing vendors that helped make this day so special!

Cammidge House Wedding: Onome & Andrew

Onome & Andrew at Cammidge House Wedding

Onome and Andrew were married on a beautiful day in May of this year. We met them over a year ago over coffee and discussed what they were hoping for in terms of their wedding day. We have to say that we think that they achieved their goal, to get married! Both Andrew and Onome were so calm and peaceful on their wedding day and that really made our job so easy. Their wedding day was actually exactly two weeks after our little guy Aspen was born and Chantelle was still healing so we brought along the very talented Laine Mostert to second shoot. Cammidge House is such a beautiful venue and we were so excited to capture their entire day there (and return later in the year for another wedding). We loved the simplicity of their day and that everyone was so into the dancing during the reception. If you know anything about us, you know that we love a good dance party! It was a pleasure being a part of your wedding Onome and Andrew!
