One of my last weddings of the season was Eoin and Lee’s West Coast Railway Heritage Park wedding. I met these two at the Union LGBTQ+ Wedding Show last October. When they told me about their ideas for their queer train museum wedding, I knew I had to be part of their big day. We met over the summer for their Whytecliff Park engagement session and spending the day with these two made me even more excited for their wedding!
Eoin and Lee’s wedding day started with getting ready at Sunwolf. I went up the night before to document their welcome BBQ and was specifically told that the morning would be super chill and that no one would be “sitting around drinking bad mimosas.” Haha! After getting ready, we took some portraits around Sunwolf before heading over to their West Coast Railway Heritage Park wedding. Their reception was full of personal touches (I have never seen centrepieces that were made up of plastic dump trucks, peanut M&M’s, and miniature bottles of Fireball before!), some of the sweetest speeches I have ever heard, an ice cream sundae bar AND a poutine bar, and a giant dance party. Eoin and Lee crafted the most incredible reception playlist on Spotify and it literally kept their guests on the dance floor all night. It was totally the best queer train museum wedding I have ever been to!
Huge thanks to my second shooter, Jana, for spending the weekend in Squamish with me and for helping me with this wedding!
