The following session was wonderfully captured by our Associate Photographer, Aimée, and her team.
Lauren and Matt had a gorgeous day in July for their wedding - beginning with the girls at the couples' condo in North Vancouver - what a flurry of excitement getting ready! Lauren was surrounded by her sister (MOH), her bridesmaids and her parents, as she stepped into her Alfred Angelo dress. She said it was the first one she tried on and loved it (then proceeded to try on a LOT more, but always came back to this one!). She added her own talent to the dress by making the belt for it - a beautiful piece that pulled it together perfectly.
The boys' pad was overflowing with fun as well - the groomsmen very kindly "christened" Matt by dumping him in his Mom's pool as a way of welcoming him to his wedding day. They all looked handsome (and dry!) though when the suits were donned and ties were made neat. Lauren made a fantastic job of her Dad's tie as well - getting it right first time is something to be proud of!
Next, it was onto the church to let the ceremony begin - in a stately vintage Bentley! West Vancouver United Church was the place everything happened (and also where Lauren and Matt attend). Lauren was on the arm of her Dad as she walked down the aisle - it was a gorgeous ceremony with lots of laughter.
Then it was onto the reception at Capilano Golf and Country Club - where both of Matt's siblings had also been married. They chose this location because of the beautiful views of Vancouver and Vancouver Island (where Lauren is from), and where she and Matt met.
The first dance proved that Matt is very accomplished in this area - it was lovely and fun! Another hit of the night was when Matt and the boys from his fraternity (Sigma Chi) sang for Lauren - a traditional song that is sung to a fraternity brothers' sweetheart - what an amazing sound that was, and truly meaningful for the couple.
Lauren and Matt - we wish you the very best in your future. You are adorable together!
