A Coal Harbour Wedding | Nicole & Mike

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.

Married at Hycroft Mansion in Vancouver | Wendy & John

We first met Wendy and John back in May of 2011 and it's hard to believe their wedding day has now come and gone! They had a lovely long day starting from getting ready in the morning to their ceremony at the stunning Hycroft Mansion and finally their reception at the Pinnacle Hotel at the Pier in North Vancouver. It was wonderful and fun to have so much time with both of them leading up to their dinner reception. One of the highlights for us was to photograph their ceremony and then part of the creative session with them at Hycroft. We've recently had so many opportunities to photograph in and around Hycroft and it's great to have that level of familiarity with the location. With the changes in season and times of day, it always offers something a little different.

Our wedding day creative session with Wendy and John ended at the area near the Pinnacle Hotel. We love the newly developed area by the pier no matter what the weather holds - although we made the most of the beautiful weather on the day, capturing a final sunset image with Wendy and John midway through their reception.

A special thanks to their fun wedding party as well as their family and friends for helping to create a very energetic day!

A Wedding at Morgan Creek Golf Course | Leslie & Tyler

We first met Leslie and Tyler at the beginning of 2011 - and after a long period we reconnected! And we're glad we did. It's been wonderful getting to know them through our visits with them, their couple session, and finally on their wedding day. Their wedding day started at their home, where Leslie and her bridesmaids were getting ready. We loved a number of little details that we found as we arrived - from the "Keep Calm and .... Get Married' sign (!), to the personalized hangers for the bridesmaids' dresses. We were so impressed with the cake that Leslie's own sister, Jill, had created - and we loved capturing her as she was putting on the finishing touches.

Leslie and Tyler's wedding ceremony was held at the Good Shephard Catholic Parish, an impressive church with beautiful light and a wonderfully warm feeling. Following the ceremony and some laughter and tears, we had a fun and energizing creative session with them and their entire wedding party along the beach in White Rock. The forecast had called for rain earlier in the week, but there was none to be seen on their day!

To end the day, Leslie and Tyler held their wedding reception at the Morgan Creek Golf Course in Surrey, a beautifiul course and a great setting for their evening.

Enjoy a few highlights from their whole day:

A Couple Session at Furry Creek | Monica & Brandon

When Monica and Brandon decided they wanted to hold their couple session at Furry Creek Golf & Country Club, we were thrilled. It's a beautiful location with a great staff - Jill, their wedding and banquet coordinator, has a passion for weddings and supporting her couples that's simply inspiring. She was a huge help to us during the session! Furry Creek weddings and couple sessions are beautiful and dramatic. One of our favourite things about Furry Creek is the way the landscape varies from the mountainside to the beach at the bottom - it's a great location for lots of scenic variety and a very special place for a couple to connect and have fun. Here are a few images from Monica and Brandon's striking couple session!

A Wedding at La Perla | Aissa & Jordan

Aissa and Jordan's wedding seemed to come up so quickly this year! We first met them in early 2011 as they were starting to plan their wedding, and it was only last Fall when we had the opportunity to capture their evening couple session.  Together, they make a fabulous team! And their wedding day happened with great ease, which is a tribute to Aissa and Jordan's planning, and of course their clear idea from the very beginning about what they wanted! Their day was also a first for us in a few ways - it was the first time we've photographed a wedding at the new La Perla Ballroom in New Westminster, and the first time we'd captured a ceremony at the newly built Our Lady of Assumption Church in Coquitlam. Our day started with Aissa getting ready with her family and bridesmaids and ended with the evening reception and dinner at La Perla. Here are just a few highlights from Aissa and Jordan's day.

Congratulations on your wedding Aissa and Jordan!!

Special thanks to Aimée for being part of our team on this day.
