Tara & Dave are Married at Minter Gardens!

Tara and Dave were married at Minter Gardens this past August, on one of our glorious days of Summer! Their wedding was flawless from start to finish, from Tara getting ready in the morning at a beautiful home in Chilliwack, to their amazing first dance finale at their reception. There were so many wonderful moments that we captured of Tara and Dave and their families and friends. These are just a few of our favourites.

A quiet glance

Their first meetingTara and Dave saw each other for the first time on their wedding day in downtown Chilliwack in an area with lots of history. Tara had such a precious look on her face as she caught a first glimpse of Dave.
