There are so many things we loved about this wedding! First I (Em) arrived at Katie’s parents house and saw that she was going to get ready in her childhood room, just as it has been since she was young, and I was so excited. I love that all of her special things were around her, her tea cup collection, paddington bear, her dolls and stuffies. It was so sweet to be there in her old room with her mom and her closest friends to prepare for her wedding day. This is our second bride this year with a Lillen dress from Bisou Bridal in Vancouver and it was gorgeous! When she was ready, giant gorgeous bouquet in hand, she stepped out her back door to meet Adam who was waiting for her. The next amazing thing was our first shoot location courtesy of Chesholm farm – thank you so so much to the Chesholms for sharing your beautiful property with us. It was so special for Katie and Adam to have this beautiful place just for them to capture the images in the meadow and barn. The next great surprise was in their ceremony location at the beautiful hidden Lillian Hoffar Park in Sidney – a gorgeous park that we never would have known was there. And then, as if it couldn’t get any better Adam and Katie boarded her family’s old rowboat and he rowed her around the point to their reception at Capital City Yacht Club!! It was so cute to watch them be sent off and as they rowed, a piper led all their friends and family to the reception to meet them for a sangria and lemonade cocktail hour before dinner. Our last favourite part of this wedding was the close bond between Adam and his dad, you could tell they are best friends and the little moment we witnessed between them at the reception was so sweet. The evening was a perfect summer day to promise the rest of your days to each other. We are so so happy for you Katie and Adam and wish you all the best!
