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! 

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!
