Are you considering a Nicklaus North wedding? Here’s a recent wedding I captured there for Ali & Kelsey.
Ali & Kelsey were a riot from the very first moment we met. Easy going, trusting and laid back.
Their welcoming personalities were once again confirmed when we got together to capture some E-Session images of them in a beach nearby their home in West Vancouver.
They were avid golfers so it only made sense for them to invite their close friends and family to one of their favourite places in the world, Nicklaus North Golf Course. It was the perfect combination of picturesque views and a relaxed atmosphere with the understated elegance their wanted of their wedding.
It also happens to be one of my favourite places to capture weddings and between all of us, there was no shortage of exciting ideas during the planning stages. From the very first conversation we had, I knew this was going to be a family affair with lots of good stories and laughter the whole day through. What I didn’t expect was how emotional I was going to be as I got to know them and their family. It truly felt like home. I could feel the head shaking moments as some childhood story was being shared by Ali’s brother or the tears of joy as Kelsey’s sister was finally able to welcome Ali as her “official” sister in law.
It was simply perfect.
One of my absolute favourite moments of not only their wedding but of my entire summer was when Kelsey’s siblings surprised the couple with a special guest to sing during their first dance. Luca Fogale, an incredible singer, songwriter from Vancouver, started us off with a gorgeous rendition of the song HOME that left everyone breathless.
Pure Magic, which inspired me to create a little something special for them. that you’ll find at the bottom of this post!!!
