A Squamish Wedding is always very special for me. Whistler and Vancouver are often my my most requested locations for Weddings. So when Janelle reached out with her plans of getting married at The Squamish Valley Golf Course I wanted in!
I met Janelle a few years back as she was the first one to cut my daughter’s long curly hair. As a overwhelmed mama listening to her 3 years old asking for a short haircut, Janelle held my hand and did an amazing job. She has this kindness and gentleness to her that I have always admired. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to meet her fiancé as I could only imagine the amazing man she had found for herself.
Janelle and Matt meet at church. She found him to be one of the kindness men she had ever met and he couldn’t take his eyes off of her.
They wanted their wedding day to be authentic and filled with their loved ones. The Squamish Golf Course was the perfect venue for them. It provided them with the gorgeous scenery of the mountain range and the proximity of being able to invite all their close ones.
She decided to get ready in one of the gorgeous cabin at Porteau Cove which provided the gorgeous getaway perfect for her family and bridesmaid to relax and get ready.
While all the guest gathered for the ceremony on the Golf Course, I noticed the boys all gathered to have a prayer and set their intention for the beautiful moment about to happen.
Once their guest were enjoying a great cocktail hour, Janelle, Matt and I took advantage of that quiet moment to go and explore the trails and river close by. It is always such a privileged moment for me when I have the couple all to myself. It is raw, intimate and often the very best authentic emotions and images that I will capture in the entire day. This was no exception.
For a moment, they forgot I was there, they were celebrating their story, their adventure and the beginning of a new chapter.
Janelle and Matt, I cannot thank you enough for your trust, your open hearts and your kindness.
