Love Knows No Bounds - Vancouver Wedding

Bride & groom relaxing in the park

Love knows no bounds, this is definitely true for this lovely couple. They first met online and quickly grew close and starting talking often over skype. The bride lived in California and the groom in Vancouver so she came up an visited for a few weeks, then later found a job in Vancouver and the rest is history. We have been honoured to tell the story of our friends weddings through the years and this one was incredibly special to us. The wedding was held in a friend's backyard in Vancouver and it was very intimate and special memory for all in attendance.

We snuck away with the bride and groom to the close by Queen Elizabeth Park and got to capture them having a quite moment alone (ok so we were there... so "mostly alone"). Typically this is the first time that a couple has a few moments available to reflect on the fact that they are now officially a married couple.

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!
