Rachel & Julius - Vancouver Wedding

A few weeks ago we headed down to Vancouver to photograph the wedding of our good friends Rachel & Julius. The wedding and reception were both held in their friend's wonderful house and backyard. For the bride and groom portraits we headed up to Queen Elizabeth Park prior to the ceremony and were blessed with awesome weather (especially for Vancouver!). Friends and family traveled from all corners of North America to share this special day, and many of their friends played a part in making this wedding as special as it was (credits are listed after the photos). You can really get great insight into the quality of a couple's character by looking at the guests attending their wedding, and wow we could really see the love that their guests had for them!
