Roundhouse Community Centre Wedding

Jen and my brother Brandon met almost three years ago at church. Jen’s first impression of Brandon was an obnoxious, know-it-all nerd. She didn’t want to be around him, and couldn’t imagine being his friend let alone his girlfriend, fiancé or wife. Life’s funny that way. Nothing about Jen drew Brandon to her at first either. They both played music at church. When Jen had a question about the music, Brandon would answer her without making eye contact, quickly, and in her opinion, rudely. That’s my brother Brandon, though. He was never interested in flirting with girls just to flirt. When a couple weeks later he started noticing Jen in a different light he was forward with her. (As forward as he could be without scaring her off.)

Jen needed help with getting a new phone. He volunteered to come to the mall with her. They went together and afterwards, the texting began. (On her new phone! How convenient!) Within a couple days, they were browsing the aisles of Chapters book store on their first date with Starbucks in their hands. Those first few weeks of their relationship we had a snowfall (rare in these parts!) and I specifically remember Brandon coming home from a date. The next day we asked what they did. “Just walked around her neighbourhood and looked at the snow.” I loved seeing him happy. He was captivated by Jen.

I LOVED their wedding day and all of the details it included. I honestly can’t believe it’s all over! It was a phenomenal day. Jen asked me to be her bridesmaid… and both of them asked if I would be their wedding photographer, too. I happily said yes to both and then thought, “Oh boy how am I gonna pull this off.” Jen and Brandon were very low pressure and said “Portraits are our priority! Anything else that’s captured is a bonus.”

I loved Jen’s headband. Her dress was from Ivory Bridal in Fort Langley. It came with this gorgeous beaded belt – but she didn’t want any bling taking away from her lace dress. The solution was to take part of the belt, sew it to the dress and take the excess and make a headband. It was the perfect addition.

Portraits were finished! And it was time to head back to Roundhouse Community Centre to get married!
