Leah and Jeff at the Museum of Vancouver
I loooove when my clients and I are on the same page. I wanted to shoot at Granville Island and when Leah sat down in front of me at our planning meeting she said "Let's go to Granville Island, ok?!" Yes!! I also love that Leah and Jeff are ALWAYS laughing. I left all our meetings with a sore tummy from laughing and I knew the wedding day would be much of the same. It was! From the moment Leah began her walk down the aisle, the part of the ceremony when the officiant said the wrong name (and it was her sister's name!), our Granville Island wander, and a rockin' grand entrance to Bad Company's song 'Can't Get Enough (of your love)'... Leah and Jeff's determination to have fun was apparent all day long.

Laughter right away, as Leah motioned to all the guests... "C'mon, stand up!!"

While some couples may have cringed at a name slip-up by the officiant, that's definitely not Leah & Jeff's style. How about a really, good laugh instead?

Did you notice Leah's awesome red lips? Yeah... they kissed off but Jeff was a good sport...

Jeff looking good in his houndstooth jacket, and red pocket square (oh, how I love a dash of red!)

ok, I've had some gorgeous bridesmaids this year but seriously... is this not the sassiest group of girls you've seen? LOVE the headpieces, similar but each a little different!

I hear the 'sexy walk' really just means 'avoiding goose poo'

Leah's laugh... it's one of her best features :)

The decor, truly unique and provided by House of De-Lovely in Langley. These centerpieces were entirely fresh... fresh basil, peppers, apples, grapes... so cool!

Casey & Tony, downtown chic
In Casey & Tony's world (real estate) it's all about Location, Location, Location. Wedding photography often comes down to Timing, Timing, Timing... which certainly came into play this particular day! After driving through some torrential rain to arrive at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, it cleared up in time for the ceremony. And stayed cloudy for the family photos... then the sun made an appearance for the rest of the shoot! The weather wasn't the only timing factor this day. Our shoot consisted of a wander from St. Andrew's-Wesley church along Hornby Street to the Vancouver Art Gallery, then across the street back to the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver for the reception. We spent some time at the building with the gorgeous tile work beside the Sheraton on Burrard. Upon leaving the wedding, that same building was roped off, a Hazmat situation was underway. (Hopefully we don't grow a third eye or something... but the photos are pretty sweet!). When we arrived at the art gallery, there was another wedding party on the steps. They gave us a few minutes to shoot, and we noticed the usual banners that adorn the building had been removed. As we left the area, they were being rolled back into place. How awesome, to shoot at this building without the usual distractions from the architecture!
Thanks to Kerry at Fairy Godmother Weddings for introducing me to Casey & Tony and for her behind-the-scenes magic!

This excited, happy face continued all day long... I've never seen a bride so excited... it was contagious!

Ceremony kiss photos are nice, but my favourite moments often occur just after the kiss ('we're married!!!') and during the signing, when the witnesses are what most people are looking at and the couple is whispering to each other in the background...

I've always loved the reflection of the Hotel Vancouver in the windows of this building, especially fitting as the reception was held on the rooftop...

I couldn't help but notice as I was taking this photo, doesn't Tony's dad Ralph have an amazing smile???

And here I am with this awesome couple, who kept the day full of laughter... who joined us for a mini break after the shoot complete with coffee & room service! Thanks Ami, for this shot!

p.s... You might remember this couple from their engagement shoot. No surprise that Casey's love of dogs was apparent on the wedding day even though Skye and Sako were enjoying a day at camp... Casey managed to cuddle with the Fairmont's hotel dog ambassador, as well as a random puppy on Hornby street! (Imagine the face of the owner as Casey picked up the wriggly, muddy puppy in her wedding gown!)
