A Wedding in Coal Harbour | Andrea + Will

We loved Andrea and Will's energy when we first met them last year. They were lovely together and that was beautifully reflected when we captured their couple session in the Spring. With all of the effort that Andrea and Will put into planning their wedding day, we wouldn't be exaggerating to say that their wedding was highly anticipated! Their day was undeniably complete - from some fun times getting ready separately in the morning, to their wedding ceremony at St. Anthony of Padua Church, and their reception at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel in Vancouver. We loved all of the special moments on their day, from the text message Will sent to Andrea, the sweet moments between Andrea and her Mom in the morning, to the wedding party's opening dance number!

Here are just a few of the special highlights from their day:

- We love the passion between Andrea and Will - it's absolutely wonderful to see and to capture. - Andrea and Will's wedding ceremony was special with the musical contribution of Andrea's brother, Brian, a very talented violinist. - Our creative session for Andrea and Will and their wedding party was fast-moving with lots of wonderful stops between Gastown and Coal Harbour. It was fun to see the area in a completely different way - something we love to do every time we photograph there. - Andrea and Will took our breath away when we photographed them in the flagship Fluevog Shoes location in Gastown - the chemistry between them was lovely, and we can't say enough about how beautiful Andrea looked in her dress and veil! Oh, how we love veils... - This was our first opportunity to capture a wedding at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel, a very modern, elegant venue and a great location for Andrea and Will's wedding day.

Congratulations Andrea and Will on your wedding day. You did it well!

A huge thank you to Stephen Bailey of Fluevog Shoes who made our location shoot at their Gastown location possible. We've always been enormous fans of Fluevog's, not to mention the fact that the location is stunning! And a special thank you to Rogue for allowing us to use their lovely location towards the end of our creative session - we saw it in a completely new way and their staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating!

We had a fantastic team of folks who added some special touches to Andrea and Will's wedding day. Andrea's makeup was by the very talented (and great to work with) Nadia Albano. The wedding cake designed by Paula from Aeyra Cakes was gorgeous. And Andrea and Will's day wouldn't have been complete without the professional planning services of Ashley and Dawn from Candeo Weddings - their experience was obvious in the way it contributed to Andrea and Will's day running so smoothly. And finally, it was great working with RF Productions again - a very talented and professional team of videographers.

We also owe a huge thank you to Aimee Makris (as always!) for her exceptional talent in capturing this day with us.
