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.

Shannon and Sean are Married

Shannon and Sean would win the award for funniest couple of the year, though maybe it should be amended to include the wedding party and their families. Shannon spent the morning making faces at the camera, while all of the girls danced around and laughed like crazy. The boys spent a fair bit of time riding around on a scooter in Sean’s parents’ backyard. Once they got together for the first look, Shannon and Sean couldn’t stop talking to each other. I imagine that it’s never quiet in their house, but always full of fun and love.

I quickly learned that the couple’s family are just as spirited as they are, through taking some silly family photos, a lively receiving line before dinner, emotional speeches, and lots of great dancing. We ended the night with some photos of Shannon doing tequila shots with her mom and sister, and the couple showing off their blue tongues from the cake frosting.

Lacey and Kerrie are Married

I wasn’t sure what to expect at Lacey and Kerrie’s August wedding, since we hadn’t met in advance. I was pleasantly surprised by a bride with a very fun and funky sense of style, the coolest bouquet of fake flowers ever, and a totally sweet wedding party. We were also, not so pleasantly, surprised with rain for their Wednesday wedding. The rain moved the ceremony into the greenhouse at Starling Lane Vineyard, which was still beautiful, though it restricted our movement a bit. But Gwen and I were really excited about the fog that rolled in for their Elk Lake portraits. The weather perfectly suited their personal style, and the couple seemed too happy to even notice the rain.

Lacey’s smile was the perfect symbol for this day – so full of joy and unrestrained happiness. I love the moment she saw Kerrie while walking down the aisle: nervousness at first, but a huge grin breaking out as soon as she saw him. The groom and crowd’s reaction mirrored her own. Such a fitting representation of the day.
