Courtney & Chris’ Stanley Park Wedding

Courtney & Chris had such a special day. We were really looking forward to their wedding, to see these two lovely opposites be married. We always feel so honoured to do the work that we do, and it makes it even more special for us when we are able to photograph friends tying the knot. Their wedding was on a wet and soggy day this August however  as Courtney put it, it didn’t rain on her parade. The Stanley Park Pavilion was overflowing with love for these two. I have to admit that I did let out a little tiny sob and choked back tears of joy when Courtney walked down the aisle. Chris was bursting with emotion during the ceremony and Courtney kept on trying to make him giggle which was so sweet to see. The reception was wonderful in the beautiful and charming ballroom at the Pavilion. All in all it was an unforgettable day.

Thank you, Courtney & Chris, for having us along on your fabulous wedding day. Congratulations!

Holly & Roger

Chris was getting ready in the hotel room where he and Courtney were going to spend their wedding night. Being the lovely man that he is, he had bought roses and put them all around the room.

Their cake topper was adorable. It even had a little sign saying “no hunting” which was so funny. Courtney is a vegetarian and Chris likes to go hunting. It is true that opposites do attract and go so well together.

Julie, Courtney’s sister, and my fellow Queen of Buttons, made buttons for every table instead of using table numbers.
