4 weeks…4 weeks until these two say “We do!!” So super excited to share their day with them in Richmond…especially after seeing how much they adore each other from this engagement session in Fort Langley. Kylie Rae loved the idea of balloons as a part of the day…so sweet…and so we wandered with balloons, laughed and enjoyed the evening in Fort Langley. I had a blast and am so thrilled for them as they get married soon.


The more I get to know this couple the more I adore them. Not only are they super creative, with mad DIY skills…but they also drive a scooter…on trips. They are awesome. And their wedding was incredible. So thoughtful, relaxed and classy. Their ceremony at St Joseph’s Parish in Port Moody was beautiful…such a sweet church. And they had a bagpiper…yep…awesome, eh? And then their reception was at the Vancouver Golf Club which is gorgeous…the most beautiful alley of trees for an entrance. But…the Vancouver Golf Club is actually not in Vancouver…but in Coquitlam. Crazy, eh? I might have to ask them one day how that came about…or if you know comment here!!

The details that were done were amazing: DIY scrabble cufflinks, DIY centrepieces, all the flowers were dried and homemade, late night sweets homemade too, and the cake was just a small store cake with a pretty topping and no one knew! Amazing, eh?

The only thing that could have made the day better? Their scooter…I wish it was the going away vehicle!!!

Christie & Malcolm…thank you for bringing me along for your adventure…I LOVED it and can’t wait to hear of all your fun adventures to come.

    We considered the scooter as our wedding vehicle but figured it would just mess up Malcolm’s hair ;)
    Thanks for this beautiful post Damara!ReplyCancel

    Omg Damara I love them. You are amazing. I’m so glad we did this.ReplyCancel

The time that I spent with this couple at Crescent Beach was full of so many things I love. One…Blackie Spit…beautiful locations with weather and light. Then add a couple that is so comfortable just being with each other and laughing. A guy with a bit of mischievousness. A relaxed evening walking, chatting, watching the sun set, and then a surprise. The surprise you might ask? Well…I often ask my couples to snuggle…I don’t know…I like the word. At the end of the night when I got my selfie with them, let’s just say I was surprised!!! You’ll have to wait and see:)

Carley & Greg…you two are wonderful…thank you for such a great evening. Enjoy the photos!!!
