Ursula and Rob ~ August 6, 2011

In the months leading up to Rob and Ursula’s wedding, we had experienced a very rainy, very cold, not-at-all-summery summer. As we planned Rob and Ursula’s big day at their newly-built log home on Gambier Island, which was to feature an outdoor ceremony as well as dinner al fresco, I made many attempts to convinceContinue Reading

Kendall and Chris ~ June 25, 2011

Anyone who spent this summer in Vancouver knows that it got off to a decidedly UNsummery start. June and July were bleak; many Vancouverites hadn’t yet retired their winter coats for the season, and couples planning outdoor weddings were collectively on edge.

Jessica and Dan ~ June 4, 2011
