Kristine and Travis are Married

I was so excited to hear from Kristine about her plans to marry Travis in Victoria this past April. I met them both back in March of 2012 when they were in town for Travis’s brother Jonathan’s wedding to Alexandria. Jonathan and Alex were the last people I expected to get a referral from, since they live in the Northwest Territories, so this was an awesome surprise.

Kristine and Travis had their wedding ceremony, following by a brief reception, at St. Ann’s. They added a bit of Scottish flavour with the exchanging of tartans, and one of the guests even wore a kilt. We took a few quick photos in front of the chapel, before a horse and carriage whisked them away.

For the garter retrieval, they blindfolded Travis and led him over to a bench where Kristine sat next to a guest in a kilt. Of course, he went for the exposed, hairy leg first. 06 11 0016 06 11 0017 06 11 0018 06 11 0019 06 11 0020 06 11 0021 06 11 0022 06 11 0023 06 11 0024 06 11 0025 06 11 0026

Angela and Ben are Married

Angela and Ben got married at The Galiano Inn at the end of March. They live in Edmonton, so winter weather wasn’t a problem for them. It actually started raining just as we were wrapping up the portraits and only drizzled a bit throughout the ceremony.

These guys have amazing taste, making this one of the most stylish weddings I’ve photographed. Everything looked great from Angela’s great choice in hair and makeup artists (check out her gorgeous loosely-pinned hair style and natural but glam makeup), stunning wedding dress, and killer bouquet to the always beautiful Galiano Inn and bridesmaids and groomsmen outfits that matched the ocean views.

The real highlight of the wedding was the energy and spirit of the couple and their guests. They had guests tell jokes at the reception to get them to kiss (they’d only kiss if someone laughed, of course), and their family and friends gave some sweet and funny toasts. The dance floor was lively and fun, making for some awesome action photos, and the couple made sure to visit with their guests who had come a long way to be with them.

I just had to include the below GIF from when Angela walked into the bathroom to put her earrings on, then realized the effect of her hair and makeup. Darn right, you look gorgeous.

Michelle and Vincent are Married

Michelle and Vincent came from Toronto to get married in Victoria just before Christmas. They were in a great mood, despite the wind and the cold. Michelle gave plaid shawls to her bridesmaids, which they made good use of.

We started the day at Michelle’s parents gorgeous house, where there were some sweet family moments. I love the photos of the sister pep talk. All of the girls got emotional seeing Michelle in her dress, then Michelle joined in and out came the Kleenex box.

The ceremony and reception were at Open Space gallery, which provided a very cool blank canvas for these artistic people to style. The wedding had a bit of a Christmas-y feel with red, black, and white decor and some greenery. The toasts were some of the most fun and funny of the year, with people telling stories of questionable veracity, along with some hilarious video and slideshows.

The dance floor was lively, with some mama’s partying it up to Mamma Mia, standing cuddle piles, some killer moves from the wedding party and their dates, and the bride and groom being totally adorable together.
