After way too long without a blog post, I'm very excited to share Katrina & Steven's beautiful Outdoor Garden Wedding at the English Inn on Vancouver Island. Katrina and Steven were married on the May long weekend in beautiful Victoria, BC. I met Katrina at a bridal show more than a year before their wedding. As she described the intimate garden party they were planning on the island, I knew it was going to be an amazing weekend. Katrina described the incredible venue: "When you enter the grounds, you don't even feel like you are in Victoria anymore. You don't even care where you are, you just don't want to leave." The weather for their wedding was perfect, even allowing for an outdoor dinner reception (something that never happens in Calgary in May!). I love how all the soft blooms in the garden matched perfectly with pink and ivory colours throughout the decor. Katrina and Steven are such a sweet couple. Kris and I were so honoured to travel to Victoria with them and be a part of their family for the weekend. Katrina is a huge Disney fan and there was more than a few times during their wedding where I had to stop and catch my breath because it felt like a moment straight out of a fairytale.
My absolute favourite moment from their wedding day was right after their first dance. The sun was setting outside and we stole them away to race down to the beach and capture a few last portraits. The four of us laughed and ran towards the sun...it was the perfect ending to the day. Honestly, this is usually my favourite part of my job. There are some many intimate moments on a wedding day that I get invited to experience and I cherish every one of them.
