The more we photograph weddings, the more we see the differences and the opportunities that are created in each day. What will stand out for us in Carla and Robert's wedding was the way they completely enjoyed it despite the weather!
We loved capturing the start of their day with Carla getting ready with her bridesmaids and her little Maddox, who arrived in April this year. He was perfectly adorable! And in spite of a busy room where everyone was getting ready, he was completely content to be in Mom's arms.
When we arrived at St Wesley's Church, we were immediately greeted by news that the power was out. It turned out that Carla and Robert were scheduled to get married in the biggest windstorm of the year! For some people that would have been a huge problem, but everyone managed it incredibly well, and this was a situation where having a capable wedding planner like Amanda paid off! The solution of course was to light candles - lots of candles! And of course we were thrilled about that! The ceremony was flawless, romantic, and beautiful. Dan Chambers, who officiated, delivered a kind, caring and supportive ceremony - it was lovely to witness.
Following their ceremony, we spent some time on Granville Island, not knowing if and when the rain would start, but always prepared with umbrellas on hand. Our time with the whole wedding party was fun, and of course the rain did come, but added to the session with some romantic images of just Carla & Robert.
Their dinner reception at the Terminal City Club was a great finish to their day. They did have power and the evening was full of great speeches, great food, and an elegant first dance.
It was such a gorgeous day! Congratulations Carla and Robert - we wish you a life of happiness together (and Maddox!!).
