Erin and David (Weller!) at Monk McQueen's
It's actually somewhat difficult to think of the groom as 'David' when literally everyone, including Erin, call him by his last name, Weller. Somebody made a speech about not believing him when he said "My name is actually David" after knowing him as 'Weller' for so long. So, in keeping with everyone else, I'll call him Weller also!

Erin and Weller met initially in Australia, his home country. They re-met again, this time in London, England, when Weller found Erin in a London tube station after a particularly bad night. (There's a good story here, trust me.) He took her home, tucked her in, and literally became her knight in shining armour. My words, not theirs. They've had many more travel adventures and with another chapter of travel in their lives coming up, it was a beautiful day spent in Vancouver with friends and family from Australia and Canada... complete with plenty of Aussie/Canadian rivalry! Erin & Weller were going for a chic "Sex & The City" vibe for their reception and the rainbow of colours worn by their guests lent an amazing burst of colour to so many of the photos. I've never seen so many HAWT cocktail dresses in one place in my entire life!

The first dance shots are definitely among my favourite of this wedding season, I love playing with off camera flash and sometimes the stars simply align... A sultry, sexy and playful dance to Nina Simone's 'Feeling Good'.

We begin with Erin and her gorgeous gown from Something Blue. I heard it so many times that day... "She looks like a skinny Marilyn Monroe!!"... she indeed was stunning...

There's a story behind this shot... and it's got something to do with goats. My favourite part about taking this photo was the sound effects that went along with it...

Absolutely gorgeous floral work by Granville Island Florists and decor by Bridal Beginnings

Debra and Jamie... one year to go!
I first met Debra and Jamie at the Ontario wedding of Ewa and Chris. Debra and Jamie met 6 years ago when Jamie was working on Debra's apartment building back east. Jamie eventually brought Debra a coffee, but apparently it took him about 2 weeks to actually ask her out. This engagement session took place September 4th, exactly one year until their wedding! Jamie's been away for weeks at a time for work, he'd just come home in time for this session. Suffice to say, there was a whole lot of happy embraces during this shoot... and a lot of whispering... hmmm... Whatever was being said it made Debra smile and laugh constantly... and I just love the outcome!

Kari & Patrick Jones-Jones :)
Kari & Patrick, high school sweethearts, and they already share a last name.
After getting to know these two a little bit better during their engagement session, I was really excited about the wedding day... we had so many laughs! They're both scuba divers and are planning their delayed honeymoon in Australia.
After a sun soaked ceremony we made our way to the shoot location, a dilapidated barn beside what turned out to be a potato field. The light was awesome, the boys had fun exploring, we didn't get kicked out... good times!
Kari's dress was a custom creation by Pure (something)clothing co. - a local dressmaker I'm very fond of.
Thanks for sharing your day with me, the day that 2 Jones' became 1.

This is Amber ripping it up on the dance floor to her favourite song, 'All the Single Ladies'... it was awesome!!

A very merry un-birthday Tea Party in Wonderland
When my friend Tairalyn over at LahTeaDah throws a tea party, it isn't any ordinary tea party... but a full-fledged trip down the rabbit hole into Wonderland. Complete with tea menus and yummy tea delicacies.

Katy, wearing her couture-inspired Chesire Cat design... if only I had a mind that could come up with this stuff!
