Lucky in love.
They first met on April 13th, 2007 at a club where they danced the night away. Five years later, to the date, April 13th, 2012, they became husband and wife. As lovers of anything to do with water, a river side wedding at the UBC Boathouse in Richmond was the perfect location for them. With 13 attendants in total, colours of coral and sea foam green to compliment their happy and fun personalities, a candy bar and 175 guests, this was truly a gorgeous wedding.
I wish you a lifetime of luck, happiness + love, it was a honour to be a part of your day!
Special thanks to Sandra Hanson for second shooting with me! You are fabulous!

We started the day getting ready at the River Rock Casino Resort…
Unlike anything I’ve seen so far, steve+tabitha had an amazing grand entrance to the ceremony. steve pulled up on a friend’s boat! (Any bride’s interested in this approach, let me know!!)
Accompanied by her father, tabitha was escorted in by canoe…so romantic!
With a musical family, during the ceremony everyone joined in for a special song…a beautiful touching part of the ceremony.
With a love for music that they share, steve designed her ring with a violin and music inspired style. You can see at the top of her ring there are scrolls at the very top and f holes engraved in the sides. It is engraved, “happy, safe and warm” which is what he always promises to keep her.
We set out on their friends boat for a private boat ride for the first part of our formals.
Oh yes, I made them do to the Titanic! Now if i only had a wet suit and underwater camera to get the front view! lol…
Love the colours of the dresses, shoes and flowers!
How perfect do the glasses match the shoes! Love, love, love!
Absolutely love her dress! A perfect choice for her fun and fabulous personality!
Seven little ones were part of the wedding party. Just need to point out how perfectly matched their outfits are! So cute!
And I am done Melissa…
I am out of here! lol…
