What a gorgeous destination wedding for Cathie & Tom at the Tin Poppy Retreat just north of Enderby, BC! A beautiful day with a beautiful couple. Enjoy these images from their special day. 🙂
I had the privilege and honour of photographing the wedding of Chelsea and Ryan in one of my favourite areas of British Columbia – Summerland. The venue was La Punta Norte and it was my first time shooting a wedding at this beautiful Okanagan destination.
The smoke from more than a hundred surrounding forest fires in BC and Washington State had been hovering in the Okanagan for a couple of weeks before the wedding, and it didn’t let up for the big day. Although this smokey reality proved a bit challenging for me (and anyone with breathing sensitivities), the wedding was an extraordinarily beautiful occasion and I wish Chelsea and Ryan all the best on their journey together, as one.
The Sunshine Coast is one amazing place to get married, that is, if you find beaches, forests, waterfalls and magical sunsets romantic. Colleen and Vince had wanted shots that looked less “posed” and were very keen to incorporate the environment into their images wherever possible. I can do all that. The getting ready session was a lot of fun. Like a fly on the wall I tried to capture the fun and excitement of Colleen and her party getting ready for the big moment.
We then headed to Palm Beach, the extraordinary site of this beautiful ceremony.
After a series of family portraits on the grass of Palm Beach park, I took the bridal party out to the tidal pools for some fun (hereafter known as the bridal pools :). They had great energy and were really starting to find their groove for the camera.
Colleen and Vince also wanted some shots in the forests of Powell River. Can anyone blame them? So up Duck Lake Road we went.
The reception was held at Dwight Hall in Powell River’s Historic Townsite. Congratulations go out to Colleen and Vince and their families.
