Christie & Tim’s wedding at The Vancouver Club was my second wedding of the Thanksgiving weekend! Ever since photographing their engagement session in North Vancouver (and Whistler!) back in January, I had been looking forward to this day. Christie and Tim are a joy to be around and I couldn’t wait to see all of their details come together.
When I arrived at Christie’s parents’ home in Burnaby, her and the bridesmaids were excitedly preparing for the day together. In her parents room, Christie had displayed all of her details with style! Her wedding dress and shawl were hung on custom made hangers. Her rings were set next to her garter, necklace, earrings, clutch, shoes, veil and second hairpiece. It was all set in gorgeous light and I was in details heaven! ;) (Ooh and I forgot to mention all the bridesmaid details also laid out with equal style! Matching earrings, clutches, sandals and dresses with custom hangers. Girl after my own heart!)
The ceremony took place at Canadian Memorial Church, one of my favourite churches in the city! I love the old stonework, the red front and side doors and the history of the church interior. Christie and Tim saw each other for the first time in the ceremony and I loved watching both of their smiles as they met at the front of the church. After being pronounced husband and wife, Christie and Tim greeted all of their guests in front of the church with a background of beautiful warm sunshine… when the forecast had called for rain all day. ;) Before leaving for The Vancouver Club, we captured a few quick images of Christie and Tim around the side of the church. I told you I really love those doors!
The overcast light in front of The Vancouver Club made for a stunning backdrop for Christie and Tim’s portraits. Loved how the architecture of the Club complemented their elegant style: black bow tie and long formal veil.
I adored the colour of Christie’s bridesmaids dresses! Baby blue is not a colour I get to photograph a lot in dresses and I thought they looked amazing. How cute is this photo?
Before the reception in the Grand Ballroom of The Vancouver Club, you bet we had to sneak in there for a few portraits! Loved the vision Christie had for her day and how it all came together. Flawless decor!
What a head table! So pretty!
