A crowd gathers on the porch of the lodge and looks towards the darkening sky: two planets are aligning. And in view of this natural wonder in the growing darkness, they party on.
We love photographing the celebrations that pull people away from the pace of city life and invite them to go on morning walks to the water’s edge, to put their cell phones away because the service is spotty, to bask in the glow of the late afternoon sun, to dance until all the stars come out or just sit with friends and chat over well made cocktails and craft beers and good wine because there’s nowhere they have to go and no rush to get there.
Arabelle & Leonard chose to celebrate their love in this way. It was marvelous.
Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island is one of our favourite wedding venues, ever. That’s saying a lot, because we have been to many places for weddings. If we’d known about this gem when we were married, you can bet we would have had our wedding celebrations here. The natural beauty here is next to none and Jesse, who runs the retreat is a top notch human being. If you’re looking for a no-stess weekend with your favourite people ever and a wedding day marked by beauty, connection, and amazing food, head there.
