I knew Sandy & Corey’s Vancouver Golf Club wedding day was destined for greatness from the almost the minute I met them. With a bucketfull of laughter, a healthy side of sarcasm, and a beautiful collection of emotion-full moments, this was a wedding day that simply could not be dampened by smoke or heat or wind or pandemic. I love every minute of the celebration (even when sweat was trickling down my back :-P) and it all started with one of the more memorable first looks I’ve ever witnessed.
I mean, LOOK AT THAT JOY!
First look over, we moved into the elegance of St. Andrew Kim Parish for the bilingual ceremony (I think that was only my second time photographing a bilingual wedding ceremony!) where the Knights of Columbus welcomed the bridal party with a sword arch! DUDE!
I love the unity candle tradition. It seems to be less common now than it was a decade ago, but it’s one of my favourite wedding ceremony elements!
(Every wedding ought to have a sword arch exit with rose petals. Isn’t this stunning?!)
After the ceremony, Sandy & Corey took a limo ride (is there any other way to do it?!) up to Pitt Meadows for their Pitt Lake bridal portrait session. The smoke definitely added a certain haziness to the scenery, but it sure added a certain air of magic to the landscape. And isn’t their wedding party gorgeous?!
Wind can sometimes be a hard beast for wedding day photos (especially for hairstyles) but oh my goodness I LOVE the whimsy that the wind brings!
I especially loved watching the flower’s ribbons dance in the breeze! And aren’t these florals simply stunning?!
I saved my favourite photo for last. Isn’t it powerful?!
