I finally got a chance to put together a full post about Mikayla and Chris’s Royal Victoria Yacht Club wedding from October 10th. These two really know how to have a fun, low-key wedding. They got married in a backyard in Oak Bay, which was lovely on a lucky sunny October afternoon. They had someone play the guitar and everyone broke out their cameras. After the ceremony, instead of walking back down the “aisle”, they immediately broke out the champagne and everyone drank and chatted in the afternoon sun.
We headed down to Queen’s Park after for some photos of the newly married couple. It was so easy to shoot the formals with these two. They were full of smiles and love and willing to get a little silly. It helps that they’re truly adorable together.
The reception was at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club and was mellow and untraditional. They had appetizers instead of dinner, and yummy looking cupcakes from Ooh La La Cupcakes. Lots of guests got in on dancing in this cozy, warmly-lit reception space.
Thanks to Phil for being a stellar second shooter, as usual. Thanks again to Mikayla and Chris for letting us be a part of their day.
