Katie and Tyler. Just a short, sweet, Sunday afternoon wedding. But one of my favourite weddings to date.
Katie and Tyler got married at Gibson Lake in the stunning Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park in British Columbia. The 1hr drive up a very pot-holed forest service road to the lake was not for the faint of heart... but once you arrived, you could see why this adventurous couple chose this spot for the very special day. This is British Columbia at it's finest. Wow!
In front of just 15 of their nearest and dearest, the couple exchanged beautiful handwritten vows. Afterwards guests were invited to take a pebble, infuse it with their well-wishes for the couple, and throw the pebble into the alpine lake. We all stood back in rapt silence while we listened to the splashes, and watched the ripples subside. It was such a beautiful moment.
Afterwards guests were invited to Pitchfork Eatery's (Nelson, BC) cozy outdoor patio to enjoy appetizers and a delicious meal as the sunset. The perfect ending to a perfect day.
Megan and Greg are proof that you do not need to have a 2 year long engagement in order to put together a perfect wedding! These two got engaged in the early spring of this year, and are planning their Kootenay Wedding for September this year.
With just 6 months, or so, to put together a wedding you might think that they were stressed-- but that couldn't be further from the truth. With all of their key vendors booked straight away, they are now just cruising! They are enjoying those blissful 'newly engaged' months, before 'newly engaged' turns into 'newly wed' (which is it's own bliss in an of itself!)
Their wedding promises to be rustic, romantic, and dreamy. And based on how incredible Megan looked for their engagement session, I think it's safe to say that she's going to make one hell of a gorgeous bride. I'm so stoked.
Highschool sweethearts, Chantelle and Austin, are getting married next summer, but wanted to take advantage of these warm summer evenings and do their engagement session straight away. We started the session at Trail's river-front park, Gyro Park. Gyro Park was the setting of many happy memories for these two when they were in their early days of dating, and it was such a treat to return there with them and make some new memories.
After a quick outfit change for the couple, the 3 of us headed downtown Trail for a more urban backdrop. The result, I think, is a session which feels like two totally different sessions. You would never guess that we were only shooting for 1 hour! I cannot wait for their The Josie Hotel wedding next year! Chantelle is going to be such a gorgeous bride.
