Wellbrook Winery Wedding: Carrie + Augustine

Wellbrook Winery Wedding: Carrie + Augustine

We met Carrie and Augustine last fall on a cold and stormy night, seriously we were late to our meeting with them because a tree fell across our driveway! After meeting with them we knew we wanted to document their day and as an added bonus they are the NICEST couple ever! Carrie and Augustine had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and door games earlier on during the day and we met with them at the venue to start with bridal party photos. Carrie's parents actually own the blueberry farm and winery but a farmer lives there and takes care of everything.

We were lucky to work alongside some amazing vendors that made the entire day run smoothly. Carrie and Augustine had everything thought out so clearly and for the benefit of their guests. Cocktails, sushi and appetizers were served the entire time before and after the ceremony so that no one would go hungry or thirsty.

As much as the wildfire situation saddens us, the smoke from a fire in Richmond actually put this beautiful haze over the sun which gave us amazing light all day long and not to mention a bit cooler temperatures thankfully. Augustine cried his eyes out as his bride walked towards him hand in hand with her mom and dad. We were not expecting his but man oh man when grooms cry it just really gets me going and I usually end up in tears as well. Their ceremony was so beautiful and watching these two exchange vows surrounded by their family and friends was a moment to remember.

The reception was held inside a huge barn adorned with long tables, impeccable decor and a delicious family style dinner with Earnest Ice-cream afterwards. Carrie and Augustine thoughtfully made their way to each table of guests, raising their glasses and thanking each one of them. We celebrated into the night and ended our time with a sparkler/ice-cream exit with their friends cheering them on. Thank you Carrie and Augustine for inviting us into your special day, your images speak volumes to what an amazing day it was!

PS. Augustine we might just be in touch when we decide to book a safari trip!

The Loft at Earls Yaletown Wedding: Sam & Evan

Sam & Evan Wedding at The Loft at Earls Yaletown

Sam and Evan were married on one smoking hot day in the middle of July this year and boy oh boy was it a party! This group was SO much fun, seriously they were so easy going and down to just have a good time all day.

Sam got ready at the Westin Bayshore Hotel downtown while Evan got ready at his childhood home in Fraser Heights. Quick side note: Chantelle and Evan attended the same high school and funny enough, Myles and Evan played on the same soccer team years ago, so we both knew a lot of people at their wedding! It's so fun showing up to a wedding and seeing so many familiar faced brought together by a couple.

After a quick limo ride to The Loft at Earls, everyone was seated and prepared for the ceremony to begin. One small problem, Sam and her Dad got temporarily stranded in the elevator. Everyone was in their places, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were standing beside Evan and we were all just awaiting Sam's grand entrance. We waited and waited and waited before a few minutes passed and the pastor went looking for Sam and her Dad, turns out there was a minor mishap with the elevator and they were stuck! Thankfully everything was fine and Sam and her Dad eventually escaped and her walk down the aisle couldn't have been any more anticipated by Evan and all their guests. Sam was just the sweetest throughout it all and they sealed their marriage with a kiss and a cocktail.

It was such a blast roaming around Yaletown with all their friends taking photos and popping bottle of champagne. One of Sam and Evan's request was that we stop at a pub for a drink before heading to their reception and I am so glad they insisted on it! We stopped at Yaletown Brewing and had a few drinks where the staff treated us to a confetti canon upon a cheers from the bridal party, so cool and so much fun. We then headed into their reception where Earls appies were served ALL NIGHT LONG! All praise the food gods because seriously it was 10/10 delicious and then topped off with Cartems Donuts. Gosh we love food!

Thank you Sam and Evan for sharing your day with us, inviting us to celebrate with your friends and family, and for being such a wonderful easy going couple to work with!

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!
