This post comes a few months late, but it is definitely no less important!!
Early this year I learned that my father in law was going to be married! Of course was very exciting news as all anyone wants in life is to be happy and find love.
The wedding was set for early May. What was a little interesting was that many of us had never met the bride to be! They had a private courtship and set the date quickly. The night before the wedding would be the first time many of us would all meet in person as several members of family live out of town. It was so great to see everyone together as it’s not often all of my husband’s siblings are in the same town at the same time!
The wedding was going to be small and include only those closest to the couple. I was honoured to be the one to capture it all! I do admit that it was a bit of a challenge as I was not only the photographer, but also a guest which included my 3 kids. So I’m sure you can imagine them running around my feet as we tried to capture these images! Sadly at the reception my oldest had to leave as he wasn’t feeling well – so here I was now with our two youngest trying to eat, feed them and photograph! You’ll see in the pics what I managed to do for a little while to keep them happy.
We planned the family photos and ‘first look’ to take place before the ceremony at Sendall Gardens in Langley. We had a plan to set up the ‘first look’ once Neil arrived… but as I was capturing a few of Deb here came Neil beaming with excitement right past all of us towards her. It was adorable 🙂
As we were photographing everyone I realized that I have captured almost all the weddings on my husband’s side of the family! First was his brother Mike in Calgary, then sister Chelsea in Vancouver and now their Dad! How fun!!
I wish them both a lifetime of happiness and love.
(as we waited for everyone to arrive, I warmed up on my little Nixon 😉
Faith has always been a big part of Neil and Deb’s lives. I asked if there were a scripture that they wished to have the rings captured on
I loved that the one they chose was also one being described in this bottom right image ‘threefold cord can not quickly be torn in two’
