Kelsey and Nick, there is so much to say about your beautiful day! From the moment I arrived at Kelsey’s Dad’s home in Kitsilano, Kelsey and her bridesmaids seemed relaxed, excited and truly ‘living in the moment.’ The house was still decorated from an engagement party/welcome-to-the-wedding-weekend celebration a few days before. Frames photos of Kelsey and Nick, balloons, an XOXO sign, it was pretty cute.
Kelsey is radiant. She’s so obviously gorgeous and chose the most stunning gown. We were laughing in the morning saying, ‘It feels like butter!’ And her dress certainly did. It was stunning and we had brilliant wind most of the day, moving her dress and veil to perfection. I loved the First Look moment with her dad before heading off to the ceremony at St Andrews Wesley Church.
This was only my second time photographing at St Andrews Wesley Church, and ahhh, I feel so grateful to have been there again! It is a stunning venue and the pastor was incredibly sweet. My favourite moment was seeing Nick during the ceremony watching his bride walk towards him. He was using all his strength to not cry and it was so great. You could see how captivated he was by Kelsey’s beauty, character and strength.
After the ceremony, we visited Vanier Park for portraits of the wedding party before driving to Granville Island for their reception at Dockside Restaurant in Granville Island Hotel. Kelsey & Nick’s day was personal, well-planned and felt like an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family. I was incredibly honoured to be their photographer and I hope these images do their amazing day justice! Enjoy their Dockside Restaurant Wedding on Granville Island.
