she was the vision of a true princess and he was her prince charming.
norbert+melissa’s wedding was a mix of vintage elegance draped in colors of purples and greys. the venue was nothing short of spectacular meeting their classy theme all the way that was held at the shaughnessy restaurant in van dusen gardens. with a fun wedding party, heartfelt speeches, a slideshow with not a dry eye in the house (including me!) and a bride and groom i feel like i’ve known forever, this was one wedding i that i will never forget.
we started off the day for the bride getting ready and the first look at the river rock casino resort and then headed for portraits at the breathtaking queen elizabeth park. they put so much love and effort into the beautiful decor for the reception and was coordinated by the talented cristie from umbrella events.
norbert+melissa, it was pleasure getting to know you and capturing your forever. wishing you a lifetime of love + happiness…

melissa, you looked so amazing!
i love a first look! this allows us time to photograph the portraits prior to ceremony and then the bride and groom can head to reception and enjoy cocktail hour early!
we headed to the beautiful queen elizabeth park for portraits. gorgeous colors and one fun group to photograph, they certainly kept it lively and the jokes flying!
gorgeous light. gorgeous bride!
this does happen, lol!
we had a few moments to capture a few more portraits after the ceremony, some of my favorites!
so much work and love went into the decor, i am sucker for vintage elegance and they certainly did an amazing job. i loved the photo display below and the frames.
pearls and lace just compliments it all! so dreamy!
norbert’s brother made an amazing slideshow to the song, “hey brother” by avicii made with highlights from childhood videos, not a dry eye in the house, including my own. this songs reminds me of my own brother too. awesome job!
