Emily & Jesse // Wedding

“Our first dance was one of the most special moments of the wedding day. As soon as we settled into each other’s arms and tears of love started to flow, it hit us that we were married. And as we danced outside under the stars, there was an overwhelming sense of calm… it was magical.” -Emily

In the midst of one of the busiest summers of our career, Emily & Jesse’s day felt slow. Slow in all the good ways. A driving down gravel roads through the mountains kind of slow. A relaxed, sunny morning kind of slow. A lingering, al fresco dinner kind of slow. And, it was magical, just as Emily herself felt it, we felt it too. Their intimate wedding tucked away in the mountains just outside of Squamish was really, the ideal day. Surrounded by such a vibrant and loving community of family and friends, Emily and Jesse held hands and exchanged vows and then they partied with their closest friends and family until the stars came out. Emily & Jesse were such a fun couple to work with–they were so open and welcoming and sat us at a table during the reception with family. True gems. We will never forget all the heartfelt speeches, dining in the open summer air, the way their parents looked so incredibly proud, how Emily’s eyes crinkled at the corners when she giggled and how Jesse held his bride in his arms, in complete contentment.

One for the books. Enjoy.

 

Just a short drive from Vancouver, Squamish is such a fantastic spot for a wedding. Emily & Jesse’s day took place at the Eagle Valley Retreat in Brackendale and a lot of DIY love happened to make the whole setup possible. Other Squamish (and area) wedding venues we love include the Sea to Sky Gondola, Sunwolf, Brew Creek Lodge, Cheakamus Centre and Drumkeeran House. If you’re getting married in Squamish or planning an outdoor wedding anywhere else, get in touch!

Mica & Nate // Wedding

“The mountains are calling and I must go.” -John Muir

Married at the San Francisco city hall the year before in an intimate ceremony, Mica & Nate chose to venture abroad for their wedding. The mountains of Pemberton won them over and they gathered there with their friends and family from all over the world to celebrate.

This is a couple who has been through a lot. They have had their fair share of heartache from health troubles, but this post isn’t about the story of their struggle. This post is about a day that was so incredibly beautiful with a ceremony that brought everyone to tears and an absolute feast in the field by the mountain. This is about a celebration of love, of overcoming, of life. This is about two people who so deserved all the joy that surrounded them. This is about a husband who holds his wife in a way that makes her feel like she’s in the safest place in the world in his arms.

If you know Mica & Nate and their story as we do, you’ll share our feelings of deep gratitude and triumph that they were able to enjoy a day so rich with beauty and merriment. Breathe it in, friend.

Jenny & Travis // Wedding

Jenny and Travis tied the knot just outside of Playa del Carmen. With a beachside ceremony in the most beautiful palm tree grove followed by a poolside dinner, we knew things could only get better and better as the day went on. Let’s just say that the evening involved Graeme changing from his suit into swim trunks so he could photograph the dancing that became a full-blown pool fiesta.

A sequined gown. A lush floral arch. A Mariachi band. Churros. Tequilla. A dance party in a pool.

You’re gonna love this.

Jennifer & Jason // Wedding

Jennifer and Jason kicked off 2016 well: with a wedding celebration in the golden sands and abundant warmth of Mexico’s Pacific coast. It was a take your breath away kind of place. With a ceremony in the sand beside jewel-blue waters and dinner and dancing under palm tree branches until midnight when the call of “meet you at the disco!” was met with cheers, it was a day we won’t soon forget. A snippet of their wedding awaits below–enjoy!

Rachel & Bryce // Wedding

You may have the universe if I may have Italy. – Giuseppe Verdi

montpelier wedding photographer-0005This is a story of two adventurous souls who dreamed of something a little bit different for their wedding. Both Rachel and Bryce run their own companies and lead very busy lives, so the last thing they wanted to do was plan a big traditional wedding and the one thing they knew they were ready for was an adventure. So, they invited their close friends and family to adventure with them to the heart of Tuscany, Italy. There were twenty-one of us all together and Graeme and I were welcomed as one of their own; invited to sit at the table next to parents and aunts and friends as the wine was refilled and the many candles burned low.

I remember arriving to the villa on Sunday afternoon and being in awe. It was all golden sunshine and heavy wooden doors and passageways and old keys. Nooks and crannies and windows with unbeatable views. It was beautiful and enchanting.

We were lucky enough to share this place with Rachel & Bryce and all their awesome people for four days. Day one was our arrival and a walk around the villa to explore. One the second day, all their guests arrived and enjoyed a wine tour. After their wedding day at the villa, everyone drove out to the Medieval town of Castellina where the legal Italian ceremony was performed in Castellina’s town hall… which was basically a castle. Rachel woredonned her Grandmother’s wedding dress (oxy-cleaned-in-a-bathtub) for the occasion and it was spectacular. You’ll see.

There are so many things we could gush on about Rachel & Bryce and their amazing adventure wedding. We left Italy with full hearts and we’re so excited to share that journey with you. Enjoy.
