David+Dayna’s Wedding | Morgan Creek Golf Course | South Surrey, White Rock and Vancouver Wedding Photographer

they sat across from each other at mutual friends birthday dinner over six years ago. with her striking beauty, both inside and out, david was smitten. with his romantic charm, dayna knew he was it.

the venue was at morgan creek golf course  in south surrey, having photographed numerous weddings there, it certainly is one of my favorite spots. a little piece of heaven tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. david+dayna opted to have a first look and portraits at the one and only vancouver convention centre, which was the perfect choice to match their light pink and bling theme, the convention centre certainly lives up to the bling part!  with city skyline views, water and the mountains, i am definitely going to be shooting there again.  from the friends and family, the emotion, to the time her father and groom seen her for the first time, the dress, the shoes and all things that bling, it was a pleasure capturing your forever.

here’s to a lifetime of sitting across from one another…

xoxo

loved her shoes! she actually put each jewel on herself to go with her “light pink and bling” theme…

every bride should get “lost” in her wedding gown…literally, lol, love this shot of her getting dressed…

they opted for a “first look”, where they have a special moment together before the ceremony. this allows us to capture the bride+groom and wedding party portraits before the ceremony. the vancouver convention center was the perfect location, just might be one of my new favs!

dayna, you’re just stunning…

“selena, selena, selena!” lol, an inside joke, but these guys kept me laughing all night…

loved the “ceremony box set” that was incorporated into their ceremony. the idea is that they will open this box on their 10th wedding anniversary where they have written letters to each other sealed inside. it is locked and remains sealed until that time…

ahhh, love her dress and this shot below…

light pink and bling all the way for decor!

 

slideshow song choice, keith urban “Only you can love me this way”…congratulations!!

Kyle+Megan’s Wedding | Langley Wedding Photographer | Vancouver Wedding Photographer

there she stood, a stunning vision of beauty, making her entrance from the doors that were brought in that belonged to her beloved grandparents. he waited below, eagerly awaiting his bride.

it was the wedding that truly belongs in a fairytale novel. no detail went unnoticed or unthought of and was executed perfectly.  the property that kyle+megan got married on belonged to her grandparents in langley and now belongs to her parents, the future site of their new home. in order to have their dream wedding there, hours and hours of work had to be done, you can see the “making of a wedding” photos below. the property was transformed and it was amazing. from tents, to grass, to a custom built staircase, mason jars, menus intertwined with rosemary and my favorite, the actual doors from her grandparents home, their day was beyond magical. as a surprise to kyle, megan actually sang and pre-recorded their wedding song, be sure to view the slideshow to hear her amazing voice! oh and the super moon was out in full effect, how’s that for a new beginning!

it was a pleasure capturing your day, one wedding i will always remember.

to happiness, your new “super” beginning and to love, always love.

xoxo
