Alessa + Anthony = Married! || Vancouver Wedding Photographer

What a gorgeous day for a wedding and what a fantastic couple we had to photograph. Alessa and Anthony first met each other at the Maximo Park concert at Richards on Richards in Vancouver. Anthony who has traveled a lot and is originally from Ireland, the selection of Doolin’s Irish Pub as their first date was a good choice.

The ceremony was beautiful at St. Augustine’s Church. Their favourite memory from the wedding day was seeing each other all dressed up at the church for the first time. There was one unexpected moment for Alessa on the wedding day that happened when Anthony went in for a french kiss in the church! Alessa’s favourite colour is purple, {something I learned at their engagement shoot} and with the little touches of different shades of purple really brought everything together. I asked them to describe the day in three words and I love their answer, “Magical. Perfect. Unforgettable.”

I think the most important advice and something every bride and groom has to remember is what Alessa says, “Don’t sweat the small stuff!” Thank you to the bridal party and Alessa and Anthony for letting us be a part of your day. You both were so happy and I can’t wait to show you even more photos!!

Ahem, if you were in the area of Sunset Beach this day you would have seen a lot of glitter flying. I’m still finding it in my camera bag! But I do love the photo in the top right with just that touch of sparkle.

There’s always time for a few candids!

When the sunshine is just in that perfect spot, we can get magical photos. LOVE it when that happens.
We also loved the vintage car. Gorg.

Geeta & Hartley’s Engagement BBQ || Vancouver Wedding Photographer

It has been so much fun planning and working with Geeta and Hartley so far this year. The first exciting event planned was their engagement barbeque. I LOVE the fact that they are into the small details {just like me} and I know all of their family and friends appreciated every little piece. We designed the invitations and all the paper pieces together and the weather couldn’t have been better for photos that day. The sun was shining the BBQ was fired up and they had games like volleyball, croquet, and bocce to play. Next up is Geeta’s shower. Ohhh I can’t wait to start designing for that {and y’all will just have to follow along to find out what we do!}

Guests left their fingerprint and name on the sign in tree and choose a pin, Team Bride or Team Groom.

I love, love the colours they chose, it was so much fun designing the stationery and Geeta, Hartley and friends did such a FAB job displaying everything. It looked amazing.

Team Groom: Hartley and Team Bride: Geeta! Geeta and some of the girls.

Okay so I searched for the straws, but I know they made a difference! I love the look of them I’ll have to stock up for more events {and different colours. I also love the cake pops that Geeta got in her colours, yellow, blue and orange.

Ashlee + Chris = ENGAGED! || Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Oh my gosh, what a great engagement session with Ashlee and Chris. Y’all know that I always want to incorporate the interests of the couple and when Ashlee told me that Chris loves to play video games and they always go to movies I had an idea brewing in my mind! We met at the movie theatre for some video games and well some movie previews before we headed outside.

Ashlee and Chris said that they weren’t sure about getting engagement photos taken but I’m so glad they did, we had such a fun day at the theatre then outside on a bit of a road trip to find a gorgeous location, fighting the mosquitos and well, jumping a ditch and all landing in the same patch of mud. Can I tell you how much I love couples that are ready for an adventure and are ready to smile and have fun in front of the camera. {Even if they aren’t used to it yet!}

I can’t wait until your wedding day guys, here are just a few of my faves.

Kirsten + Joey = Married! || Vancouver Wedding Photographer

The weather has finally changed for the better and it was time for my first wedding of the season. Joey and Kirsten are well let’s face it, so much in love and a dream to photograph. A backyard wedding with family and close friends in attendance was the order of the day and with only the phrase “where are my socks” ringing in our ears I would say it was picture perfect. Here are just a few of my favourites.

A few details before the wedding starts, Scarlett Ballantyne made the girls {and Joey} look gorgeous. I think we were all in love with the tent and chandelier, and the cake! Oh the cake that was not supposed to “slip” in the car, but dang that gravity! Mom to the rescue and the cake looked fab.

amy williams, daydream weddings, vancouver wedding photographer, engagement photographer, wedding photographer, portraits, daydream weddings, wedding photography, vancouver, coquitlam

Grooms take note, one min you may be sweeping the dance floor before your wedding, the next you’ll be in your tux ready to walk down the aisle! Joey you cleaned up great!

I LOVE this photo Joanna captured of Kirsten’s mom looking at her in her wedding dress.
They were so cute saying “no don’t look at me you’ll make me cry!”

Okay this ceremony will go down as one of my favourites and one that had the most memorable lines,
“Joey would you place the ringer on Kirsten’s finger.”

I think this is my fave photo of the day. We’re so lucky to live in BC, where we can step from the forest to the beach in five minutes. Love it!

amy williams, daydream weddings, vancouver wedding photographer, engagement photographer, wedding photographer, portraits, daydream weddings, wedding photography, vancouver, coquitlam

I love these two! Here’s our two views, Joanna’s on the left and mine on the right!

Kirsten you are absolutely stunning.

So it was very important for Joey and Kirsten to get married on June 25, that date didn’t work out locally so they did the next best thing. A little secret wedding in Disney World. They kept it quiet from most of their guests and then announced it after dinner, everyone was so happy and it just added an extra little sparkle to the day.

Okay we know the shoe game, but I’ve never seen audience members play along!
Joey’s dad, Frank, raised his shoe when the question was asked who do you think will change the diapers when you have kids?

amy williams, daydream weddings, vancouver wedding photographer, engagement photographer, wedding photographer, portraits, daydream weddings, wedding photography, vancouver, coquitlam

Oh the camera. I don’t know who brought it but it made the rounds.
It looked real but when you tried to take a photo it gave you a shock. I want one!!!

amy williams, daydream weddings, vancouver wedding photographer, engagement photographer, wedding photographer, portraits, daydream weddings, wedding photography, vancouver, coquitlam

Best first dance ever.

When Joey said, “man after this day I think a piggy back is in order.” And Kirsten looked at him and said, “hop on.” You just have to love them. Here’s wishing you so many years of happiness.
