they sat in my kitchen while i stood at the stove making grape juice. they told me about the past and predicted the future, highlighting some of the struggles they have already faced and looking forward to the adventures to come. levi talked a lot about his pursuit of janelle and she would smile and nod and blush and then in her own thoughtful way inject her perspective on their courtship. their wedding, they hoped, would be a sweet union of tradition and fun all set in the place they met and eventually fell in love. they wanted to honour their families and celebrate with the friends who had watched as their relationship had grown and cheered them on when they got engaged. and they wanted everyone to relax and enjoy themselves in the beauty of God’s creation, from little cousins to grandmas and everyone in between. as i walk through the images of this day, i feel it all. all those hopes and wishes and plans…they were all wrapped up in this beautiful package called levi & janelle’s wedding day.
if you are interested in talking about having me join you at your wedding, send me an email and let’s chat!

one of the amazing things about this couple is their mutual admiration for each other. they clearly see their partner as a gift…it comes out in the way they look at one another and how highly they speak of each other. it’s beautiful to witness.
we went to the mountains together and they did not disappoint. here is levi & janelle.

paulina & jamison.
their story is one of serendipity; chance connections, mutual friends, shared faith and a love for cats.
jamison had gone back and forth about how he wanted to propose and had all sorts of grand schemes in mind, but once he had the ring in hand, all of those plans fell to the wayside. he literally drove from the jeweller to the grocery store to buy out their flower department. he then proceeded to turn her apartment into a floral wonderland, remembering to lock the cat away in the bathroom, but forgetting that it was probably not a good idea to leave a vacant apartment with candles lit (details, details). paulina was giving him a haircut that afternoon and as he sat in the chair, the nerves started to rise and he could barely contain his excitement. when they got home and walked through the door, the tears started to flow and she agreed to be his wife.
when they decided to get married, they knew a couple of things: they wanted a beautiful backdrop and they wanted it to be small. so with their immediate families and a handful of their closest friends in tow, they headed to ucluelet to spend a few days together…not only to get married, but to visit, surf, relax, eat good food and celebrate in a way that was comfortable and beautiful and so connected.
