Sometimes it can be pretty sweet having the last word, or in this case, the ‘Last Moment.’ Real Weddings Magazine’s Autumn 2009 issue has just hit the news stands and we are happy to see that the closing image of the magazine is one we captured at Fenella and Jason’s Bowen Island wedding this past July 25th. The image shows their garden reception venue along with bride, Fenella underneath a bright orange sky with dual lightning strikes AND two rainbows- this really was quite the moment in time!
One of the amazing things about this image is that this is the shot straight from the camera, there have been no special effects added to this. Those of you who were lucky enough to be in the Vancouver area that night will surely remember the evening well. With no rain or storms in the forecast that day, everyone was set to go ahead with their summer plans and for us, that meant photographing Fenella and Jason’s big day. While we were on Bowen Island that evening, many people around English Bay in Vancouver were treated to a double light show of both the lightning and the finale of the Celebration of Light fireworks display. The lightning storm with it’s surreal red sky was definitely the most spectacular display of its kind that we’ve ever seen and we watched it all unfold from Fenella and Jason’s outdoor wedding that went full steam ahead, despite having no rain plan. Anyhow, we don’t want to give too much away on their wedding story because we will be running a blog article soon on the whole day experience, and it was a spectacular day, even without Mother Nature and her surreal show in the sky that evening. So, check back soon and we will have more tales to tell.
