This kinda summarizes what this whole day was about. So much love!!
Another gorgeous day for a wedding!! I first met Mat & Nicole at Nicole’s sister, Kristen’s, wedding which I photographed last August! I can’t get over how much these two look alike, and despite their differences, how similar they are. It was such an honor to be a part of both of their wedding days!
Mathew & Nicole are so sweet together. They both have an awesome sense of humor, and I caught them whispering to eachother and laughing numerous times throughout the day. As corny as it sounds, you can kinda feel the love radiating out of these two 😉
I started the day at Kristen’s house where Nicole and the girls were hanging out and getting hair and makeup done. These girls be CRAY!! They were hilarious!!
I couldn’t not include a photo of the most ridiculously adorable little dog I have EVER seen!!
Nicole received her stunning makeup by Allison Giroday and her ga-ga-gorgeous hair by Alex of A La Mode UpDo’s. These girls are wicked talented!!
Oh seriously. I love this shot of you!!
My awesome-sauce 2nd shooter Kerensa Leigh started the day at Kirkland House , where the guys were hanging out and getting ready.
Mat looking very GQ on his wedding day…
Love this shot! Kirkland House has so many awesome nooks and crannies to shoot in!
I so wish I could’ve had an outdoor wedding ceremony! This is so gorgeous!! And those florals?? AMAZINGGGG!! Thanks to the talent that is Flowerella!
SO MUCH CUTENESS!! I can’t even handle it!!
Nicole grandparents are awesome. I had the pleasure of meeting them at Kristen & Ryan’s wedding, and totally fell in love with them. They are so genuine and sweet, and love these girls so much. So special that he walked both of his girls down the aisle!
This is love people.
Making it official!
After doing family photos on the property at Kirkland House, we headed to Tsawwassen for bridal party photos. I had scoped out the area the week prior and found this amaaaazing field of buttercups. The only problem is that you had to walk through a teeny tiny little path and traipse through muck to get there. I am SO STOKED that Nicole trusted me and went for it!! I have so many beautiful photos from this field!!
Such a beauty!!
Nicole gettin all sassy 😉
hahahaha, see what I mean!! These guys are a great group!!
beautiful. Every single one of you.
The light!!! And you two seriously look like you have prior modelling experience. So if you ever run stuck in the employment department? You might wanna pursue a career 😉
STUNNING shot from Kerensa!!
Harris Barn was decorated beautifully for the reception! White wooden chairs with burlap ribbons, white table linens, gold chargers with olive green napkins and topped with an antique key as a gift for the guests, beautiful peonies in all shades of pink and blush, accented with creams and fresh greens, and these ridiculously AWESOME lit up marquee letters!!
