Jen & Chris

Jen & Chris had the perfect Victoria wedding with a first look in the gary oak fields of Beacon Hill Park and a ceremony with high tea reception in the Fairmont Empress’ palm court. There are a lot of great wedding venues in Victoria but the Empress just has this extra special something.  There really is nothing like it and the palm court is especially beautiful with the coved stained glass ceiling, marble mosaic floor, and colonial pillars.  High tea was the perfect afternoon recetpion with the tiny sandwiches, pastries, and of course fancy tea cups.  We had such a grea time exploring the Empress with Jen and Chris.  Even though in grade one she did form part of the membership of the Fight the Boys Club of which Aaron was a target because, well, … he is a boy so therefore he had to be fought:)– we considered it water under the bridge and we were so happy to be there to witness Chris and Jen’s big day.  All the best to you both!

that 1st shot of her looking up at him is just so sweet. Love it. Beautiful capture. And your details are delicious (as usual).

Elizabeth & Egidio

Elizabeth & Egidio had such a sweet August wedding at the Sea Cider farm & Ciderhouse in Saanich. There were so many beautiful details to this day with gorgeous flowers from Rook & Rose, Elizabeth’s stunning dress by Vancouver designer Lillen (yes this is the 3rd Lillen dress for us this season and we love them!), a vintage hanky passed down from Grandma, his and hers John Fluevog shoes, a classic car, and well a table full of pies for desert! We loved that Egidio picked out the design for his boutonniere of rosemary and lavendar and even better that he chose to keep the little tag from Rook & Rose that said “groom” fixed with a tiny clothespin as he wore it through the day. The boutonnieres were such a nice tough as you could smell their fragrance as those who wore them went by. And then there is the bouquet!!!!  I think this is my favourite – I love all of the deep rich colours and the wildflower look about it – so so beautiful. It was a gorgeous day and while the wind kept us from the beach we had such a great time with them at some heritage barns and the apple orchard at Sea Cider. They spotted a rake and Egidio asked if they could be American Gothic farmers – which last seconds before they cracked up which was even better. It was a really warm evening which was so perfect for their first dance out on the patio with the summer moon low in the sky over the water.  We were so happy to be a part of this day!  All the warmest wishes to you both!!

Oh how I love these! I so enjoy seeing what you guys have been up to! I just love the tender glances you captured during their day. You captured what love feels like. :)

The photos are stunning!! The American Gothic farmer series, from stern to crack up, is a personal favourite. I won’t make the mistake of saying that the photos look better than the real thing, as was the comment for our wedding photos… but definitely as beautiful as the real thing!

Richard Hurley - October 4, 2011 - 4:00 pm

Jessica - October 4, 2011 - 3:31 am
