Beth and August's beautiful wedding day began in the elegant Rosewood Georgia Hotel. In the bedroom of the spacious suite, Beth was pampered with makeup and hair, surrounded by her Mom and besties - and of course, the gorgeous white dress. In the groom's room, August was as cool as a cucumber and looked dashing in his suit and tie. Bringing the couple together for the First Look is always one of our favourite parts of the day, and the lobby bar of the hotel was the perfect place for a private moment. Of course, their doggie, Mikaela, had to join them for a few shots before being whisked away to her dinner and bed.
Stanley Park Pavilion was the backdrop for the ceremony and reception, and the park also offered a beautiful, easy stroll for Beth and August as we wandered with them, taking "a few" pictures as we went. They looked completely relaxed together, and it's easy to see why they are a great match - always kind and patient with each other - a great recipe for any relationship.
The ceremony, give by Vancouver, Officiant, Jay Lundgren, was a hoot, and guests were treated to a sunny day with a slight breeze that kept moisture (mostly) away. Family photos were followed by a cocktail hour, and then it was into the reception - beautifully decorated by planner, Emma McCormick, as well as friend, Marion Groot. The room looked like a sea of wood, greenery, and candles, which gave the room a rosy glow as the afternoon turned into evening. Family speeches were given (and more than a few tears were shed), and Beth and August celebrated their first evening as husband and wife.
What a gorgeous day it was to spend with you, Beth and August. It will no doubt lead to many more - thank you for inviting us to capture it :)
