She a Chevy-driving, cowboy-boot-wearing, wilderness-loving bride. The kind of bride who drives her Chevy to her wedding, pulls on her cowboy boots before walking down the aisle, and bounces (and bounces some more!) up the rutted forest service road for her Sumas Mountain bridal portrait photo session.
“Twirl! Just twirl!”
And so she did.
Each time I asked for a twirl, those satin layers would swoosh into action; between Angela’s giggle and my glee, we were a sight to behold (especially for all the hikers who were jealous of our Sumas Mountain Bridal Portrait)
Angela’s headband was hand crafted with love and is available from The Van Elles on Etsy.
“Oh, don’t mind me, I’m just walking through the wilderness in my wedding gown. I’m awesome like that.”
Angela’s flowers were crafted from seasonal offerings at chain grocery store. More than ever, I am convinced that florists are God’s gift to womankind: piecing together flowers into a aesthetically pleasing bouquet is not for the faint of heart!
The view on top of Sumas Mountain is extraordinary – miles and miles and miles of Fraser Valley to enjoy. Exactly why it’s the perfect view for a bridal portrait.
Choosing a favourite photo is akin to picking a favourite child – it’s impossible, unwise, but sometimes unavoidable. between Angela’s gown, her angelic glow, and that cutest of smiles, that photo [above] gets the “not-favourite favourite photo” award of our evening together.
