One of the amazing things about our job, is that we're often asked to photograph multiple siblings' weddings in the same family - that was the case with the Malamas family this year. In 2008, we photographed Maryann's wedding, then in 2011, it was Stephanie's turn - this summer, we photographed Nicole's beautiful day - and met her sisters' new babies! Nicole and Mike wanted an intimate wedding that reflected their fun personalities, the beautiful summer colours, and a view to show off Vancouver to their guests. Coal Harbour definitely achieved that - the area is lovely, and showcases the Vancouver skyline extremely well. The surrounding flowers and gardens gave the creative session a perfect background for the couple and their wedding party - Nicole and Mike's attendants were fun ad engaging and clearly had close relationships with the couple, which made for lots of great interaction between the four friends.
One thing that really surprised us, was the appearance of a former colleague of Randal's from his hi-tech days, Wendy Yacboski. Wendy was the officiant for the couple (she did a fabulous job!), and Randal had a moment of his "two lives merging into one"!
The reception featured Vancouver-based caterer, Savoury City - headed by the wonderful Donna Wadsworth and her team, the guests feasted on tasty-looking canapés and a buffet of fine foods. We loved the cupcake display and the colourful array of icing, which matched the colours and mood of the day. Nicole and Mike looked completely happy and joyous throughout the entire day - we really enjoyed capturing their looks, their sense of humour, and their sweetness together.
