We first met Colleen back in 2008 at a wedding we photographed in Vancouver. So we were thrilled that Colleen and Jason selected us to capture their own day this September. We got to know them over a few opportunities this year, and knew that this day would be special in many ways. They're spirited together with a strong sense of what they want and it showed on their beautiful wedding day. Colleen and Jason's ceremony took place at St. Christopher's Anglican Church in West Vancouver, a lovely and quaint church nestled in a quiet neighbourhood. It's an intimate church that brought a sense of peace to us when we first walked through the door at their ceremony rehearsal. Following the ceremony, we had a great time with the entire wedding party as we strolled along the seawall in West Vancouver. The wedding reception was held at the Capilano Golf and Country Club in West Vancouver - a beautiful private club nestled on the side of the mountain and with a stellar view. The dining area was so elegantly decorated - we loved the details!
Some memorable highlights: - Colleen and Jason's wedding ceremony at St. Christopher's Anglican Church was warm and intimate, with their family and close friends attending. We loved Colleen's smile as she came down the aisle to Jason! - One of our favourite images of the day was created from a moment that Colleen and Jason had hugging and kissing, with Stanley Park and the Lions Gate Bridge in the background - it make us happy to just look at it! - We've been so impressed this season with Capilano Golf and Country Club - this was our second opportunity this year to capture a wedding there and it didn't disappoint. Colleen and Jason's wedding was elegant and beautiful in a perfect setting. The decor was stunning! - Their cake was created by Thomas Haas, and it was gorgeous! We've always been a fan, and seeing one of his wedding cakes was, well, icing on the...
There were many wonderful moments from the day, from Colleen getting ready in the morning as she glanced at her dress, to a moment we captured at the very end of our evening with them. Click on the first image to check out their day!
Congratulations Colleen and Jason - we're very happy for you both, and we wish you much love and happiness together!
There are so many wedding partners who had a hand in creating Colleen and Jason's day. We were thrilled to have another opportunity to work with the mega-talented cinematography team, Rafael and Rachel of Rafael Ziah Franco. Hair and makeup credit (amazing as always!) goes to Gaby of Gaby Ramirez Makeup. Decor and flowers were by Larissa Meade of Bridal Beginnings. And the day went smoothly thanks to the fabulous Devon Hird of Fairy Godmother Weddings, Colleen and Jason's official wedding planner.
A special thank you to Aimée Makris for your creative help in capturing the day.
