Julia and Andrew are originally from California, now living in Victoria, and had a small wedding ceremony with their closest friends and family at the Amethyst Inn. They had their dog, Noodle, as their ring bearer, except he got a little too excited and had to wander around smelling everything when he was put on the ground during the ceremony. Solution: drape the ring bags over his back and attract his attention. He turned out to be the perfect addition to a ceremony that included family heckling the bride when asked if anyone objected to their marriage and lots of laughter combined with tears.
We started the day at their nearby adorable character house and later snuck in some portraits at Government House down the street, even though it rained and got super cold all of a sudden. We ended off the day with some bride and groom portraits at their house, where photographer Julia had the most beautiful couch in front of a light-filled window. Perfect. Julia and Andrew are such a sweet, and silly, couple. I especially love the portraits of them cuddling on the couch, and of course, Noodle had to get in on the action.
