Christine & Brett’s Touching Wedding at the Arbutus Club

CFBJw-1666Christine & Brett’s wedding at the Arbutus Club was so touching, with so many lovely moments throughout the day. Christine & Brett beamed with joy and we think they might have the cutest first look photos we’ve taken yet – we loved how they peaked around the corner at each other and giggled. Their families are so close and they all clearly love each other so much. Roger caught a beautiful moment of Christine’s mom crying as Christine left the house and she then laughed when she realized Roger was capturing it all. We really were honoured to be so kindly and openly welcomed by Christine & Brett and their family and friends into such a special day.

Denise Elliott and Kimberley Ashley had Christine and her maids looking absolutely gorgeous.  Oasis Flowers created all of the gorgeous florals that smelled as good as they looked. DJ BFad knows how to get the party going. He had the dance floor packed immediately and we’re sure it was like that all night long.

Christine & Brett, thank you so very much for sharing your wedding day with us. We are thrilled for you and we wish you a lifetime together filled with joy. Congratulations!

    Holly and Roger,
    You two were amazing on Christine and Brett's wedding day! You captured so many special moments. You were everywhere, but were not obtrusive in any way. Holly, I appreciate your calm demeanour in moments of panic and Roger, you can run! These sample pictures are beautiful, and I think you have captured all the love on this day! Thank you so much!

      Sharon, thank you so so much for your kind words. It means so much to us to hear that we were unobtrusive. There was so much love that day at the club. It was such an honour getting to witness it all.

    I shared these pics with a couple of my students today after school. We were all practically in tears with how beautiful and happy everyone looks. I will be looking at then over and over. Thanks sooooo much for letting me see the collection. Where can I see the posed shots we did after the wedding, before the reception?

The effort and energy you put into that day is apparent in the results. Thanks so much for preserving this day for us so beautifully.

    In my unbiased opinion as father of the groom all the pictures are great! Holly and Roger , I can't believe how hard you guys worked. The pictures taken on the dance floor were great, you guys really know what you are doing!

    What beautiful photos. I love the mix of tender shots (Brett and his grandma before the wedding, both moms getting teary-eyed) and fun shots ("Bob" giving his speech - priceless memory!). Thanks for helping us remember a wonderful night with your artistry.
