Vanessa and Katrina’s Jericho Beach wedding at Aberthau Mansion was one for the books! They contacted me about shooting their wedding after seeing photos from Lau and Meg’s UBC Botanical Garden wedding.
These two did their wedding entirely their way and it was such an incredible day. Not only were their outfits and decor fabulous, but they opted to have their legal ceremony (officiated by the wonderful Karen Ell) prior to all of their guests arriving so that their ceremony could be officiated by a close friend and completely personalized to them and their story. Their ceremony included dancing, a land acknowledgement, a grounding exercise for all of their guests, and some of the most incredible vows I have ever heard. I was so grateful that they invited me to be part of their special day with their friends, family, and chosen family as it’s not one I am soon to forget.
Huge thanks to my second shooter, Jana, for helping me with this wedding!
