Atchelitz Thresherman’s Village Wedding │ Pete & Abby

unique-wedding-photography-in-vancouver-canadaIn August I had the pleasure of shooting one of the most laid-back couples of the year, at the most unique location, in some crazy weather. Pete & Abby both work on farms, so they decided to incorporate the farm “feel” into their wedding by hosting their guests at the Chilliwack Atchelitz Thresherman’s Village. They were hoping to be able to say their “i do’s” on a beautiful grassy area beside a creek, but the weather had very definite other plans. The wind was howling, and we even had thunder and lightning!! The rain held off until after the ceremony, even know though we were kept comfortable under a beautiful log overhang, but then it came down with a vengeance.

Following the ceremony, we took advantage of cover under the Bailey bridge and hung out for photos with the bridal party. From there we warmed up with some shots and champagne at Duke’s Pub, and then with no convincing needed at all, Pete & Abby agreed to stop near Bridal Falls for some rainy shots in the woods. We had literally 5 minutes to set this up and shoot these before having to leave for the reception, but those frantic 5 minutes were so worth it!! One of these shots is the one they decided to blow up and have printed on canvas for their home.

The reception was held under tents at Abby’s parents property, and it was the perfect ending to a perfect day. It was cozy, full of vibrant energy, and we were stuffed full of amazing food and drinks courtesy of Catering Visions. These guys smiled and laughed through all the rain and wind, and it ended up being an absolutely fantastic day.
