A few weeks ago, amidst the sweet calm that follows Christmas, Laura and Bassem said “I Do”. It was beautiful. Capilano Golf and Country Club was the most gorgeous backdrop for a Christmas wedding full of lights, laughter and a touch of old charm. Laura’s dress reminded me so much of one of the Bennett sisters from Pride and Prejudice…loved it. And it felt like being a part of a family wedding, as this was my second time celebrating with the Websters; Laura’s sister was a bride of mine the year before!!
Laura, Bassem…I was so thrilled to spend the day with you!!! You shone joy and excitement and I loved so much how you would whisper to me about how much fun you were having…that this was the best day EVER! You radiated so much love.
And a big shout out to Faith who came along to second shoot with me!
Laura’s Alfred Angelo dress, from Champagne and Lace, was stunning. Wow.
Oh Laura, you are stunning.
I love that in the midst of the excitement and rushing to get things done…two sisters reached out.
Bassem and Laura chose to do a first look…which I love. They didn’t want a long wait time in between their ceremony and reception as they wanted to spend time with their guests…and so a first look was perfect! It allowed time before to be together, to have fun with their wedding party…and to capture moments like this. Can you sense their excitement?!!!
Loved this wedding party!! It was full of family and friends that have become family.
Flowers by Margarita!
Isn’t her dress stunning! That sheer lace overlay…so so so pretty!
Bassem and Laura have the most easy going, laughter and smiling way with each other.
Their ceremony was at Sutherland Church in North Vancouver and it set the most beautiful stage for their vows! After Laura had seen the inside right before Christmas she was so thrilled because it had been amazingly decorated for the season…and they got to have that as their ceremony backdrop! And truly…the people of the church made something beautiful. This was one of my favourite Christmas church do’s. So pretty.
A unique and special part of their ceremony was that they not only took communion but they served communion to their guests. So special and I had never seen that before. Everyone came to the front and either participated in communion or received a blessing from the pastor.
Capilano Golf and Country Club was decorated with beautiful greenery, red bows and twinkling lights…so pretty and an elegant Christmas set up.
Bassem and Laura entered and went directly into their first dance…choreographed!!! It was awesome and super sweet!
During dinner we went outside to do some creative portraits and have a little fun playing around.
Another Webster sister…I’m thinking 3 girls, 3 years, 3 weddings?
One of my favourites from the day…a simple kiss, unplanned, delightfully received.
When looking through these photos I fell in love with these two!! Not only are they darling…but super awesome dancers too!! I think they need to hire themselves out for weddings…bringers of super awesome dancing to the reception.
ONe of the best families ever! Love the Jarvies!!…just missing the best piece, Ali!
Bassem, Laura…thank you for including me in your day. Love you both. Damara
Life has taken over…chasing my moving one…making plans and dreams for 2014…enjoying time snuggling at home and recovering from sicknesses. And my blogging has suffered…BUT I am so excited for all the things that are on the docks to share with you!
So I have opened my Christmas images and just wanted to share one with you all.
Coming into Christmas this year…my little beasts first one!!…I had a few ideas, thoughts, dreams of what it would be like. I knew he would love the paper and boxes, that he would love things he was already familiar with (why I let him play with his toys ahead of time and then Christmas morning…he loved them!), that lots of things other than our little created treasures for him would be way more fascinating…and I also knew the photo I wanted. You know…that picture you have in your head that silently shouts Christmas to you?
This is that photo for me. He was enraptured with the tree and the lights…it had a touch of magic watching his face take it all in. Love all these firsts.
Gorgeous couple with the cutest baby bump + my future nephew + funnest couple EVER = amazing time and amazing images
Quite awhile ago we took some maternity photos…long enough that the little babe is more than 2 weeks old now. Let’s just say blogging is slow these days:) I got to hang out with my brother and sister-in-law, we played in a favourite field in Langley, we took a few photos and it was fun. I loved it actually…ha! My brother and his wife are truly some of the funnest people around. They love candy, movies, popcorn, random jokes, funny faces, awesome things like David Bowie and unicorns. You all need to become friends with them.
I love these three and am thrilled to share some “before” baby shots with you all.
