Carol and Chris met online a few years ago and upon their first date, both knew they had something special. Carol and Chris share a quiet comfort between the two of them – they are peaceful, easy people to be around and their wedding day was flawless. Nothing was rushed or stressed, every moment was at it should be… enjoyed.
Rosewood Hotel Georgia was the perfect backdrop for Carol’s getting ready photos with her maid of honour Cindy. Next door, Chris and his best man Levi prepared for the day – I loved the idea of adjoining rooms! The First Look took place on the second floor of Hotel Georgia, highlighting some of the gorgeous interior details before we walked over to Vancouver Art Gallery and the Vancouver Law Courts for more photos. The sky threatened rain all day, but didn’t follow through. ;) For us, it meant a delightful break from Vancouver’s four-month long heatwave and perfect, overcast cloudy skies for photographs.
I loved all of Carol’s details including her dress (it fit her like a glove!! Wasn’t it amazing?), her hair and makeup by the perfectly genius Jayna Marie, the bouquets and all of the mint touches in the best man’s tie, the maid of honour’s dress and reception chairs.
After a Catholic ceremony in a Vancouver church, all the guests were on their way up the mountain in Coquitlam to Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club. The rustic beams in the ballroom were accented by string lights everywhere (my favourite!) and wood table numbers with fresh white hydrangeas. Theresa of Diamonds x Dreams did an amazing job putting all of the decor together at both the church and the reception venue. (She seriously worked so hard!)
Carol and Chris, your wedding was so delightful. Thank you for having me, for being a beautiful couple and for having a gorgeous wedding. ;) I pray your marriage is 10x as beautiful. Love, Jamie.
