So a little bid of my driving adventures before we get into the real post – not more than 30 minutes before I arrived for Kirsten + Kyle’s engagement session, my car was pretty much in a ditch and needed to be pulled out by the super nice farmer Paul and his tractor. So to say that driving down to Perth was a bit treacherous at times is a little bit of an understatement.
But it was so a million per cent worth it as these two, in this location, with all this gorgeous fresh, falling snow was absolute heaven and so worth the drive!!!
For the past few years I have posted a Thank You to all of the couples we worked with over the year. It is hard to find new words to describe how lucky we are to be able to capture these big days and really when it comes right down to it I think a heartfelt Thank You is the best I have.
Cultures and traditions are such an important and beautiful part of every wedding day. And throughout the weddings we have been lucky enough to be a part of we have seen a lot of different approaches and takes on North American traditions. But what I really love is seeing different traditions and cultures mixed into one truly memorable day, and that is exactly what Juliet + Blake had planned for their wedding. From Juliet’s accessories right up to their traditional dances during the reception it was so great to see the mix from both Canada and the Philippines.
Colour can have a pretty big impact on your wedding day. Your chosen colour is typically part of your bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, stationary, and general decor. But picking a colour (or a couple colours) to match your personalities and represent your day can be difficult, especially if you are one of those people who doesn’t have one specific colour as your favourite. But picking one colour, or even two, was not what Juliet + Blake had in mind for their day, and I am oh so glad they went in such a vibrant direction!
Valentine’s Day landed on a weekday this year and that resulted in Dave and I celebrating the holiday on the weekend rather than on the day itself. Although to be fair, we don’t really celebrate the holiday most years, as we really just have dinner at home and watch a movie or Netflix together, which sounds sweet and all, but it isn’t really any different than most nights. Anyway, the delayed celebration meant I was able to do something pretty darn special on Valentine’s Day with some incredibly amazing couples.
