Julie and Dan’s Eclectic Wedding on the Wedding Chicks!

September 17th, 2014

I’m so thrilled to have my work featured on the Wedding Chicks blog today! Julie and Dan’s wedding was one of my favourite styled weddings I photographed this year and the Wedding Chicks really did it justice with their post. I love all the comments from Julie in the post as well.

Thank you Wedding Chicks!

Lauren & Brett – Summerland, BC Wedding

September 7th, 2014

What a knock-out of a day! Every detail was so gorgeous and Lauren and Brett and their friends and family were such an awesome, fun group to capture. Lauren and Brett chose to have their wedding at Brett’s parents property in Summerland, BC. It is a stunning spot and Created Lovely really did it justice with her beautiful, complementing decor. There were so many unique touches like the amazing custom-made stage the family had built for the ceremony. Amazing!
I loved the colours and styling of the bride and bridesmaids so much. I was definitely a little blown away when I walked into the girls getting ready to see 8 equally stunning ladies in front of me. It was a big, fun wedding party that listened to my direction to boot, so I loved them all right off the bat. : D Thanks very much to Simone Wittenberg for second shooting/assisting me for this wedding!
There was so much love surrounding Brett and Lauren for their big day. Everyone put so much thought and heart into their speeches and I’m glad Limelight Studios was there to capture them as they were all worthy of being enjoyed again. I was so in love with the clear tents used for the reception. The light was perfect for photos and the beautiful evolving sky, showing through the roof of the tent, created such a fantastic effect for photos as the night progressed. Le sigh. I was a click-happy girl. So happy for these two that they had such a perfect wedding day! I don’t think it could have gone any better.

Check out Limelight Studio’s video post of the big day. They did such a fantastic job. Grab the Kleenex!

Christine & Matt – Bottega wedding, Kelowna, BC

August 22nd, 2014

Christine and Matt chose the stunning Bottega for their wedding in Kelowna. I LOVE the mix of modern and rustic at Bottega. It’s such a beautiful venue. Christine and Matt are such a fun pair and they and their wedding party had me and my lovely second shooter, Katie Nugent, cracking up all day. In the images below, you will definitely get an idea of some of the things that had us laughing. Fun times! We got to work with an awesome team of vendors as well, including the always hilarious and fun DJ Haymaker and the delicious food of Details Catering. Such a fantastic day! So happy for these two and their adorable daughter, Vivian.
