It was clear after their couple session how much Krista and Keg love the water - their couple session which started on their boat, the Milagro, was fun and lovely! So it made sense that they would have their wedding at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club in Point Grey, with its amazing panoramic water view and with the Milagro moored close by. Earlier in the day we met up with Krista as she was having her makeup finished at her home in Vancouver, surrounded by her bridesmaids, including her sister, and her Mom. Krista looked stunning in her gown and veil and her adorable Betsey Johnson shoes! From their home we'd arranged a First Look between Krista and Keg at UBC. You could see how quickly Krista relaxed the moment she saw Keg for the first time that day. It was a special and quiet moment between the two of them, and one of a few that day.
Our time with Krista and Keg was short but relaxed - the area we used for their wedding location images was beautifully lit by the sunshine and gave us a great opportunity to capture them together as well as with their entire wedding party. Following our time with them at UBC, they got ready for their ceremony to begin at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club. They were married on the outdoor patio, accompanied with live music and vocals, and a ceremony conducted by Marilyn Knipp, a very special marriage celebrant who married us just over 9 years ago!
Some wonderful highlights and moments from their day: - One of our favourite images of the day took place as Krista stepped outside her home to be greeting by a group of 8 year-old girls who were visiting her neighbours - they were waiting to get a peek at her in her wedding dress! - Krista and Keg's First Look was lovely and sweet with just the two of them and a great way to start our location session with them, and their wedding party. - Krista and Keg's ceremony was conducted by Marilyn Knipp - who was wonderfully warm, loving and full of energy. We love her dearly! - We managed to sneak away after the family formals for some wonderful sunny images of them on their boat, and then again before their first dance for a quick walk down to the pier for some sunset images. - The evening ended with a great performance by Side One, a fun and energetic live band with the very talented Rebecca Shoichet and Martin Acosta on lead vocals!

Congratulations Krista and Keg! We loved your day from start to finish! We're looking forward to seeing you both again soon.
Thanks to Erin Bishop of Filosophi Event Planning for her very capable management of Krista and Keg's day (including orchestrating the tight timing for their sunset images!) - it was great to work with her for the first time and she kept the day flowing! And it was wonderful to capture the makeup artistry of Nadia Albano. We also enjoyed working with Trevor Leyenhorst and Lindsey Braacx from Sultan Studios for the first time, who were responsible for filming the day.
And finally, a big thank you to Katerina for assisting us on this beautiful day!
