The Wedding Yacht in Vancouver BC

A beautiful bride and handsome groom make for a gorgeous wedding, and it was our privilege to be able to capture the amazing wedding of Clare & Brian. The wedding took place in Vancouver on board The Wedding Yacht. Vancouver is a spectacular city and what better place to experience the sights than on a boat cruising through Vancouver Harbour. The Wedding Yacht is a very neat way to plan a wonderful wedding experience. The yacht was docked near the Westin Bayshore Vancouver hotel where the couple and their huge wedding party of bridesmaids and groomsmen got ready. Clare & Brian are both from the US but fell in love with Vancouver during a visit here and decided it was the perfect place to get married. On their first visit to the city, they had their first meal at Cardero’s and so we took a few photos outside the restaurant. Their friends and family all got to experience Vancouver and Canada for the first time and hopefully many of them will come back in the future! Clare had planned a beautiful wedding, complete with lots of cool details like customized purses from Etsy with individual messages stitched inside for all of her bridesmaids. Brian had one of the most awesome groom’s cakes we’ve ever seen (check it out below). We had set up a first sighting for the couple, and then took some photographs with the wedding party. Next, it was time to board the yacht and float out for the wedding ceremony with Stanley Park as the backdrop. Once the ceremony was over, the party began, and the yacht cruised out into Vancouver Harbour and up through the Lower Mainland. After some fabulous food and touching speeches, the dancing began on the top deck of the boat and the DJ played into the night. The evening was completed with a sparkler exit for the newlyweds. It was an incredible wedding and one that we’ll never forget. Thanks to Clare & Brian, and we wish you a fun and adventurous happily ever after.

Ranche Restaurant Wedding in Fish Creek Park

We had the great pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Karina and Mark at one of our favourite Calgary wedding venues, The Ranche Restaurant in Fish Creek Park. We set up a first sighting for the couple, just outside of the historic Ranche. Mark and his 2 children awaited Karina’s emergence from the doors of the Ranche to see each other for the first time. Their first moments together on that day were exciting and it was the beginning of a fabulous wedding day. Karina and Mark are lovely people and the entire wedding was so much fun. Karina did an amazing job with all of the gorgeous details and final touches, in fact she created a lot of it herself! The day was made complete with a sparkler exit for the couple. We wish Karina and Mark all the best for a wonderful life together.

Rimrock Resort | Banff Wedding Photos

Kerri & Darryl celebrated their love with a fantastic wedding ceremony overlooking the amazing Banff National Park in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The location could not have been more perfect, on top of the Rimrock Resort Hotel on their ideal outdoor terrace (Suite 900) that looks out over the entire townsite of Banff, the Canadian Rockies, and is nestled in the valley separating Mount Rundle and Sulphur Mountain. The terrace is an amazing location for an intimate wedding ceremony, with nearly 360 degrees of spectacular views.

Kerri and Darryl were surrounded by close friends and family, who helped celebrate this beautiful day. The weather was superb and we couldn’t have asked for anything else on this great day, we were so happy to be a part of their wedding. For photos, we went to a few different spots around Banff, including Surprise Corner and the gorgeous meadow on Tunnel Mountain, along with Lake Minnewanka and the Bankhead ruins.

A cute part of the ceremony was Kerri & Darryl’s  dog coming down the aisle as the ring bearer, delivering the rings when called.

Moon Palace Destination Wedding in Mexico Mayan Riviera

The wedding of Yvonne and David was a beautiful celebration of love and locale taking place in the amazing Mayan Riviera outside of Cancun, Mexico. It was an honour to be part of their day and to help capture the memories that they will enjoy for a lifetime to come. Many of their guests came from the Toronto area, where the couple lives. Yvonne looked so beautiful, the dress was gorgeous, and her friend did an incredible job with Yvonne’s makeup. The ceremony site was a wonderful stretch of sandy beach, Yvonne had decorated everything perfectly, and all the details were superb from the basket of brushes to get the sand off guests’ shoes, to the champagne toast and cocktail hour along the ocean front. The wedding took place at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in the Mexican Mayan Riviera. Moon Palace resort near Cancun is definitely a great location for destination weddings in Mexico. Although it rained most of the trip, for the wedding day itself fortunately, it stopped raining and the sky was slightly overcast. It was perfect for the lighting and no one had to squint in the blazing sun or get burned.

Before the ceremony, the couple met around a corner from each other for a gift exchange. We took a photo of them holding hands around the corner but not seeing each other. It was a great moment! The groom went to the ceremony site, David anxiously waited as Yvonne arrived to the ceremony in a horse drawn carriage. Afterwards, the couple shared their first dance together on the beach. The entire wedding was fantastic, and we had a lovely time working with Yvonne and David. We wish them the very best of all that is to come.

The Cochrane Ranchehouse Wedding

Cassandra and Dustin are such wonderful people, perfect for each other, and their wedding was a beautiful celebration made up of close friends and family. We had the honour of photographing their wedding at the Cochrane RancheHouse in picturesque Cochrane, Alberta. Considered a frontier town of the Old West, Cochrane is a great location to get married set amoungst the rolling foothills and with the Rocky Mountains as the backdrop. We previously captured engagements photographs of Casey & Dusty in Bragg Creek last year, which were also featured in the November issue of Weddings in Alberta Magazine, and both of these locations have special significance for the couple. The Cochrane RancheHouse is a beautiful wedding location, and we also went with the wedding party to do photos at McDougall Memorial United Church near Ghost Lake in Morley, Alberta. We had a lot of fun working with Casey & Dustin, and we wish them the very best for their future lives together.

The Ranche Restaurant at Fish Creek Park Wedding Photos

Marnie & Jay were married during a beautiful wedding ceremony surrounded by family and friends at the incredible Ranche Restaurant in Fish Creek Park (Calgary, Alberta). We had a lot of fun working with Marnie and Jay, such wonderful people and it turned out to be a lovely wedding.

The Ranche Restaurant at Fish Creek Park is one of our favourite venues for weddings in Calgary, and it boasts many amazing photo opportunities on the grounds of The Ranche and in the surrounding area of Fish Creek Park. We always enjoy any opportunity to photograph weddings at The Ranche, and the staff is always polite, friendly, and professional. Upstairs there is a small “getting ready” room that has beautiful light and a cute antique mirror table.
