Maria + Scott are MARRIED!

I met Maria and Scott through Stephanie, a sister and maid of honour to a bride of another wonderful wedding we captured last year. It's been great to get to know them over the last number of months including having the opportunity to capture their engagement session. Their wedding day was beautiful and it was in large part due to Maria's great planning! She left no details to chance and it showed throughout the day.

The day started with a very busy morning at her parents' home in North Vancouver. Maria was very ready for the day! Getting ready The wedding bouquet Scott and his groomsmen were at the Church on time waiting for Maria and her bridesmaids to arrive.

Bride and bouquet Looking out We were so fortunate to have the big blue sky on Maria's wedding day. It made an amazing backdrop for Vancouver's new Convention Centre.

The ballroom was stunning with incredible chandeliers and no shortage of added little touches.

Fun and passion Maria and Scott, thanks for the opportunity to be a part of your very special day! I should also acknowledge your entire (and big!) wedding party who were fabulously supportive, relaxed and fun on your wedding day. Congratulations on your wedding!

Also, a special thanks goes out to Katerina who braved the heat with me to cover this beautiful day.
