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
