Michelle and Matthew were married this summer aboard the Magic Charm yacht which sails from the beautiful Coal Harbour area of Vancouver. Although they live in Edmonton, Alberta, they decided they wanted to do something special for their wedding day and all of their friends and family. They couldn't have picked a more beautiful spot for a destination wedding.
These are a few highlights from their wedding day!
Michelle got ready with help from her family at her grandparents' home in West Vancouver. We could just feel the excitement when we arrived.
Michelle looked beautiful in her wedding dress - these next few images are some of our favourites of her getting ready that day.
Michelle arrived with her entourage just as the ceremony was about to begin aboard the Magic Charm.
Their ceremony was so lively!
Once the ceremony finished, the newlyweds left the yacht for some family photographs in Coal Harbour, followed by a short session with their wedding party.
After a brief stint, everyone headed back to the Magic Charm before it set sail without them!
Back aboard the yacht, everything looked beautiful for the reception.
There was lots of laughter, tears, and everything in between, once the toasts started.
We saw Michelle and Matthew laugh through their whole wedding day - which was so wonderful to see. And this image on the bow of the Magic Charm really captures Michelle's spirit.
Michelle and Matthew's first dance was all the more special with the live band!
We love bouquet tosses! The scrum for this one was so much fun!
One of our favourite images towards the end of the evening was one that we captured with the Vancouver Harbour in the background. We loved the energy between Michelle and Matthew!
Congratulations Michelle and Matthew! You created a bit of "magic" for your wedding day. We were so honoured to have been your wedding photographers.
And thank you Meralon, my always lovely and talented wife & studio partner, for assisting me on this day.
