If there was an Olympic Medal given to a wedding party we would award it to Jenny and Tim’s wedding!
Jenny was one of the thousands of volunteers during the 2010 Vancouver Winter games and was so excited to tell us she knew exactly where she wanted to do her wedding photos, the Olympic Village. Having their ceremony and reception just down the street from the village at Villa Amato (above Mario’s Gelati), the Olympic Village was the perfect photo location and we were so stoked to check it out a week before the wedding. Unfortunately, when we went down to the location there was no access and gates up just like the Olympics! Gutted, we phoned Jenny to tell her the bad news, our new game plan was to drive to Granville Island for their wedding photos. But just as the sunshine came out after days of rain on their wedding day, the gates disappeared and we were the first wedding party to take photos in the village! The beautiful coloured buildings and city skyline just added to the beauty of this couple.
The flowers were gorgeous and designed by Jenny’s cousin who owns Rose’s Flowers and Gifts. They were stunning! Jenny and Tim were sure to add pieces of their personality all over their reception. From the Smurf and Hot Wheel cake topper to the custom m&m’s. Later on after the seven course Italian meal and the late night pizza there was a special treat of a gelati trolley for all of the guests. Free Gelati = a line up and a bride jumping in to help!
We love you Jenny and Tim and are so excited for you to see the photos! Thanks for letting us share in your day. Here are some of our favourites from the day. Enjoy!
Tim and Jenny’s “First Look” How cute are they? Because they saw each other before the ceremony, we were able to run around the village and find some of the most beautiful photo spots ever! Plus, Jenny & Tim got more one-on-one time together before the ceremony.
We see a magazine cover here…Now we know you guys practiced!
One of the best things, we think, is having two of us shooting your wedding at the same time. Above is Amy’s view of Jenny sitting in one of the cars and below is Jen’s view. Two photographers, two views. That’s a win/win!
The art of smizing.
mmmmm mint chocolate chip gelato and not a drop on the dress!
Keith Urban, Jenny’s favourite artist just so happened to have a billboard out side of Villa Amato!
The flower girls and their bubbles.
Tim and Jenny, congrats again!

Between days and days of rain in Vancouver, the sunshine appeared for Jenny and Tim’s wedding day.
How excited were we when we all walked into the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Village with our gorgeous wedding party? Being the first wedding party to shoot on these grounds, it was an amazing day. More to come tomorrow, including a quick ice cream stop at Mairo’s Gelati!
Jenny and Tim are getting married this June and the invitations are out! Tim loves vintage cars and hot rods so to add to their custom invitations he had a friend draw the heart graphic in a car pinstripe design. SWEET! They are also getting married above Mario’s Gelati and Jenni’s favourite ice cream flavour just happens to be mint chocolate chip. So what better marker for the wedding on the map is an ice cream cone! I love it when couples can add personal touches to their invitations.
The best surprise we had for Tim was the closing sticker for the envelope I designed. I took the Hot Wheels logo and added their names and wedding date and Voila! Instant AWESOME! We then added it to the RSVP card, to make it a bit more slick on the back.
We can’t wait to shoot their wedding and engagement photos!
Congratulations Tim and Jenny!
