shaughnessy restaurant wedding: christine&peter

September 25, 2012

weddings

Christine & Peter were married this past Saturday, September 22nd. I started with Christine and her bridesmaids at her families gorgeous apartment in Coal Harbour. What a location! Christine is quite possibly the kindest, most genuine-hearted, hospitable bride I have ever had the privilege of photographing. From our very first meeting at the engagement session, to months of emails and now the wedding day, Christine made me feel SO welcomed. She was certain I was the photographer for her from the very beginning and that is a huge honour. Loved watching Christine open her gift from Peter with delight. He had one silly gift, a t-shirt he designed with childhood photos of theirs combined into one picture, and one beautiful gift, a ring box from Tiffany’s. She opened it up and squealed. Her bridesmaids laughed, “Only Christine would be this excited about a ring box!” And as Christine read Peter’s letter she whispered, “I thought the gift was incredible but this is so much more!”

The ceremony took place at eleven o’ clock in the morning at Canadian Memorial Church. As guests entered, both sides of the family stood at the doorway of the church to welcome. I thought that was so special. Christine & Peter had a beautiful, beautiful Christian ceremony. Their pastor spoke about the seasons of life — and how, although this was a Fall wedding, their marriage is in a Spring season. An exciting, fresh, growing season. But then comes summer, fall and finally, the harsh winter. Christine & Peter made a solemn commitment to cling to God and cling to each other through all seasons.

Following the ceremony, this new husband & wife celebrated with 160 guests over a lunch reception held at Van Dusen Gardens’ Shaughnessy Restaurant. Everything was so elegant. From Christine’s stunning gown [Vera Wang!] to the pale pink bridesmaids dresses, the natural-looking bouquets, the groomsmen’s snazzy ties, the succulents at each table [guest favours], the background music during the party… understated elegance. We finished up the day with portraits at Olympic Village.

Christine & Peter, I could not have asked for a better wedding to mark my 100th. Or a prettier wedding dress. Or a more meaningful ceremony. Or better tasting food. Or better weather. Everything was perfect. God’s richest blessings on your future!
