Milner Chapel Wedding

My second wedding at Milner Chapel dawned a bitterly cold but perfectly clear day in late December.  After the bustle of Christmas but before the rush of New Year's, we snuggled into the ever-cozy, perfectly-charming, vintage-beautiful Milner Chapel in Langley, BC. With the most perfect Christmas charm, the most elaborate handmade details, and THREE pairs of bridal shoes, this Milner Chapel wedding was - to quote Mary Poppins - practically … [Read More...]

Engagement Pictures at Sunset Cliffs
