i simply adore countryside weddings, especially when i get to photograph them in my home town of 100 mile house. the flying u guest ranch is such a cool location for weddings or events. i was so honored when calvin+nicki, from smithers bc, found me to document their day. every element of rustic, simple and classy decor was done to perfection.
you know that scene from “braveheart” where he secretly marries her in the woods? that is what their ceremony reminded me of, a picture perfect little secret spot in the woods, complete with the beautiful singing of their friend on guitar. seriously so romantic!
wishing you both all the happiness, laughter and love in this new chapter. your friends and family made me feel so welcome and i’ll always remember your gorgeous day.
