We've know Laura for a long time now, and we were so excited to be asked to be part of Laura and Stéphane's wedding day. We had so much fun together for their engagement session earlier in the year, and their great spirit continued on through their wedding day. The day started at the Pan Pacific Hotel, with their ceremony following at the beautiful and warm St. Augustine's Church in Kitsilano, Vancouver, and then with their reception at the Diamond Club at Simon Fraser University. Laura and her bridal party prepared for the day at Vancouver's beautiful Pan Pacific. The view from the hotel delivered a beautiful backdrop for the start of Laura's wedding day. While Laura was having her makeup applied, her mom, bridesmaids and flower girl were also getting ready and enjoying themselves all the while. From the Pan Pacific we continue to capture images of Laura and Stéphane's guests arriving for their ceremony at St. Augustine's Church in Vancouver. Stéphane and his groomsmen arrived at the Church on time. Laura was also on schedule as we'd expect! The ceremony was bilingual and very sweet. We had time for a quick image of Laura before wandering the campus area at Simon Fraser University. Laura and Stéphane enjoyed some brief romantic moments together. After capturing some fun images with Laura and the groomsmen, Stéphane didn't want to be left out! We loved the backgrounds that Simon Fraser University had to offer to create images like this one down one of the corridors. The colours that Laura and Stéphane chose for their wedding were beautiful and rich and matched the ambience of the Diamond Club. Towards the end of the evening, Laura and Stéphane enjoyed their first dance together.
Thank you so much, Laura and Stephane, for inviting us to capture your day - we had a ton of fun with you! Best wishes to you both for your new life together.
Special thanks to my lovely wife and studio partner, Meralon, for all her hard work that day.
