The bride and the three flower girls were so beautiful. Here’s the guys before the ceremony in the rustic rooms at the Fraser River Lodge, one of our favourite venues to photograph in.
The ceremony in the Lodge. Love the detail of the mirrors and mismatched picture frames!
The scenery and the mountains make an amazing backdrop for wedding portraits, then we headed to a hazelnut orchard for some romantic, intimate photos of the couple.
We can never get over the view at the Fraser River Lodge Resort! Here’s the reception with gorgeous details by Alyssa Short Design using mirrors, fresh limes and silver balloons and at the end of the reception a grand exit with balloons and sparklers that looked amazing and dramatic at night.
How THEY MET: “Cody and I met when he came into my work, and then we saw each other out one night and that was it, I was hooked! I know it sounds cheesy but he brings out the best in me and really makes me a better person.
“The PROPOSAL: “On December 21st 2011 our daughter was born, Ryen Elizabeth. She is beautiful, perfect and made us realize that we wanted our new family to be together forever. Cody proposed on April 14th, we didnt realize it but we actually planned our wedding exactly a year to the day he proposed. Cody came home from work one day and he got down on one knee and proposed with our 5 month old daughter Ryen on his knee. It couldn’t have been more perfect!”
The BEST PART about getting married: “I can’t wait to marry my soulmate and continue on this amazing journey together.”
How it all came TOGETHER: We hired Mancy Hutsul and Alyssa Short from Alyssa Short Design. They are a mother/daughter team and are so amazing and helpful with every aspect of our wedding.
