Kathy & Shane’s Lovely Fall Wedding at Van Dusen Gardens


Kathy & Shane’s wedding on a gorgeous fall day at Van Dusen Gardens was absolutely lovely. It really was. They were both so so happy and such a joy to be around. I have to admit that I cried editing through their photos I was so moved by how over the moon they were that day. They are an adorable couple who are crazy in love with each other. There were so many beautiful moments that day. Be sure to watch the slideshow above to see them all.

Emma from Elements Modern Weddings did a fabulous job coordinating all of the details for Kathy & Shane. (You’re the best, Emma! We will miss working with you!) We loved all the beautiful florals created by the Flower Box. Cadeaux Bakery made their gorgeous and super delicious cake.

Congratulations, Kathy & Shane! Thank you so so much for sharing such an incredible day with us. It was an absolute pleasure working with you two. We are so very happy for you!

    It was a perfect day and the your pics reflect that (I have no idea how you'll decide which to have framed!). It was lovely to see you again, Kathy, and to meet you, Shane. Your wedding was great fun ... beautiful but highly individual (like the photos...). We hope you manage to squeeze in a stopover in balmy England when you head over for your honeymoon x.

    Wow! Such beautiful pictures ... great subjects and super photographers!! It was such a picturesque wedding. Was good to have a Thanksgiving dinner with you two, and Mom, while in Kelowna. I got the rice stuffing recipe from Alvina, Kathy; will give it a try next time I make a turkey. I passed the Broccoli Salad recipe on to Alvina for you ... hope that she passed it along?! Cheers!

    Just got back a few days ago and finally had a chance to really sit down and look through all the wonderful photos in this post. Holly and Roger you did an amazing job as always, I'm sure Kathy and Shane must be thrilled with the images! I especially love how you incorporated all the fall leaves and seasonal backgrounds into so many of the portraits.

    Shane, congratulations from down under. I so remember you as a little boy, talking into my tape recorder (I bet they don't even have those things any more) when you lived here in Australia a long time ago. I wish you and your lovely bride a life time of happiness! Thank you lovely mother Alvina for sharing these photos with us and once again, wishing you all the best!
