Sheila and Gord were married in late November on the Esquimalt Navy Base. I love the classy touch that the Navy dress uniforms add to the atmosphere of the day. The overall style of this wedding was a wintery sort of elegance, if that phrase makes any sense at all. Anyway, everyone looked amazing in their best clothes, the ceremony was very sweet (and the couple very emotional during it), and it seemed like everyone had a great time.
The girls got ready at The Inn at Laurel Point, where I love to photograph because the rooms have so much gorgeous natural light.
This is one of the few very successful bubble exits I’ve seen. The bubbles continued for quite a while after they exited the chapel. Nice effort, guests!
We headed to Saxe Point for a few photos, though the grass was super soggy and the sky was very bright. I love the west coast winter feel to these shots. Afterwards, we headed to the Admiral’s house on the base, which was a pretty interesting experience. The garden there was gorgeous, despite the cooling weather. Sheila and Gord were their usual sweet and adorable selves.
The reception was at the Ward Room, which was decorated a bit for Christmas. I loved the cozy feel of the room with the bar and big fireplace.
After cocktail hour, the evening continued with funny stories about Sheila and Gord along with some toasts (and roasts). During one such “toast”, Gord’s sister laughed so hard and loud that she cried.
The DJ asked the flower girl what song she’d like to hear and she said “Boom Boom Pow”. When he played it, she displayed some mad dancing skills. Seriously amazing.
