Point No Point Resort Elopement

The blog is back with a sweet elopement from Point No Point! Its January – the time of year when I finally have time to take pause, breathe, and reflect on the year that has passed. It was an incredibly busy one for us running a business and raising two babies. I am so proud of how much we have accomplished but juggling so many balls means one may drop and it appears to be the one labelled “blog regularly”. So yes I have missed all of you who have been so supportive of my posts in the past and so one of my resolutions is to blow away the cobwebs and find time through the busy-ness to spend some time here. I am liking looking back through the year’s weddings and figured I had better start at the beginning with the first one from 2013 which as it happens was the first one after having two babies and one that I shot solo. I first met Sarah a few years ago when we were both grad students attending a field school. I was struck right away by how genuinely sweet and kind she is. I was so excited when she got in touch to say she was getting married to Jeff and they wanted to elope and she wanted me to come and photograph. She wanted a place on the west coast that was quiet and romantic and perfect for eloping and of course that place is Point No Point Resort. I met them on a perfect May day where they said their vows before the sea spending some time along the beach before a forest walk. What a magical and incredibly romantic place and so beautiful a place elope. Thank you Sarah and Jeff so so much for letting me in on your little secret and letting me capture all the sweet quiet moments of your day.

love everything about these. That hug in amongst the trees, her hair blowing in the wind, the kiss in the forest… truly gorgeous. Hope they’re hanging up large on their walls.

Morgan Creek Golf Course wedding of M&M

011_ elgin heritage park surrey bcWhen my sister Deniel moved to the lower mainland a few years ago my parents and brother were pretty sad. Micah was so sad in fact that he soon followed them and moved into their basement suite. Before he made the move my sister made a new friend Sharalee. One day they were visiting at Sharalee’s house her friend Megan was there as well. Sharalee found out that we had a brother and immediately yelled to Megan – “Hey Megs come and meet your future sister-in-law.” It was a pretty bold prediction that miraculously and lucky for everyone in my family came true!! So last August (yes I am THAT far behind in my blog posts!) Megs became Micah’s wife and our sister. Being the youngest and only boy I imagine it was pretty daunting for Megan to enter the world of our loud and always opinionated family of mostly girls. So when the wedding planning began Deniel and I told Megan we were happy to do whatever so put us to work. This wedding at Morgan Creek Golf Club in Surrey BC was a family labour – weeks of collecting cobalt blue glass bottles and vases, milk glass bud vases, doilies, silver trays, organizing flower orders, making bunting and banners and seating charts. but you do for those you love and we love them very much!! Megan loves deep blue and daisies so that led the theme and we went from there. I channeled my inner florist and with the help of good friends Erica of Rook & Rose Floral Boutique and Vanessa from Verbena Floral Design planned the floral decor and with the help of friends we did the arrangements and bud vases for the table and ceremony. My sister made all the pinwheel m&m favours, the banners, bunting, flower girls pinwheel bouquets and much more. I got out my glue gun and made the boutonnieres and mom found the perfect vintage jewelry set and reconstructed it into earrings and necklace for Micah to give to Megan at their first look. It was the most incredible day and being four months pregnant at the time I cried a lot. I was so honoured to be asked by my brother to stand up with him and when my sister came down the aisle as a bridesmaid and we looked at each other and looked at our brother it was a little ridiculous that I didn’t have any kleenex with me! Looking back at this day I am so thankful for my amazing family and most importantly for the beautiful Megs who is now Auntie Megs to my girls. You can never have enough sisters in life I am blessed to have another one. So congratulations a year later to my little budder and his Megs.

Chelsey - September 14, 2013 - 1:40 pm

Awwww! I love these! Such heartfelt emotion! And seeing that your brother had you stand with him – my mama heart melts. That is so unbelievably cool. And you are right, you can never have too many sisters – I have 3 here on earth with me and 2 by marriage. It’s the best. xoxo.

jennifer armstrong - September 12, 2013 - 1:32 am

that first photo is just amazing. And the b&w ones in the barn. And the close-up of him kissing her shoulder. And the colour photos & all that light on the beach. And those tears at the ceremony. And all your beautiful details. And mustaches. And the littles dancing. Oh my. SO fantastic. Beautiful, beautiful work. Congratulations to you all.

Terry McKaig - September 11, 2013 - 5:19 pm

How wonderful to relive the day through your artful images!! Lovely!!!
