Robbie & Laura // Peace Arch Park Wedding

Robbie and Laura's wedding was gorgeous!  Most of the wedding took place in White Rock (or nearby) on a bright, sunny (and hot) day in July!  We started out with getting ready photos (of both the ladies and guys) in the morning.

I arrived at the ladies' location, where Laura (the beautiful bride) was getting her hair done and her bridesmaids were also getting ready.  Makeup, hair and gorgeous dresses... a perfect combination for details and getting ready shots! :)


Meanwhile... my assistant, Bianca was over at the Ocean Promenade Hotel in White Rock with Robbie and his groomsmen!  Here's a few of Bianca's photos...


Laura and Robbie both wrote letters to each other to open that morning.  We were able to capture some images of them during the time they opened their letters, but it was really neat to have their videographers also record them reading them aloud (a neat memory I'm sure they will cherish!)


Next stop was the church to get married!!!  We headed off to First United Church in White Rock for Robbie and Laura's wedding ceremony.  This would be the first time they saw each other as Laura walked down the aisle! :)  I LOVE capturing the groom's reaction as he sees his bride for the first time. :)  Oh and also a very cute addition to the wedding was Laura's dog, Porsche, who also walked down the aisle. :)


After the ceremony we quickly headed off with Laura and Robbie for their bride and groom portraits.  They chose to have a longer time set aside just for photos of them and the location they found did not disappoint! :)  Laura had found a gorgeous, quiet area with pathways and tall trees...


After Bride & Groom portraits we headed off to Peace Arch Park near the Canadian and US border crossing.   Here we took the rest of their photos with their wedding party before the reception started...


And finally to end off the post... with the reception!  The hall in Peace Arch Park is amazing.  I loved how Robbie and Laura had it decorated.  All of their family and friends celebrated their marriage with them ending off the day with dinner, speeches and dancing.

Here's a few details, guest candids and photos from speeches throughout the evening...
