Sheri + Michael. Granville Island Wedding
We met Mike + Sheri last year when we photographed B + T’s love story in Massett in the Queen Charlotte Islands where Sheri + Mike live. We’ve been looking forward to their Halloween wedding and knowing M + S we knew it would be a great time for everyone, but we had no idea just how much fun it would turn out to be! Mike + Sheri are one of the most genuinely happy couples we know and their obvious love of life is contagious! The day started at theGranville Island Hotel in Vancouver in a crazy rush typical of most weddings, and there were so many sweet moments and tears of joy through the day, but never far behind there was always more laughter. The details were simple and flawless with the decorations and flowers by Wedding Design Studio. The couple handed out a gift bag to each guest with gifts from Haida Gwaii; agate, shells, home made wild strawberry and salal jam, and hand crafted cedar baskets. The tables were each named after one of the many beaches in Masset. The reception ended with a masquarade dance and a surprise appearance by Mike in a batman suit to end the day (we kept these photos for later, but use your imagination!).
If we had to describe Mike + Sheri to you, we would say they are real, committed, kind, fun, and not afraid to be themselves. We should all be so lucky.
Here are some photos from our trip to Haida Gwaiilast summer.
