Gosh, as I sit down here to write this post and look back at these photos, I’m reminded of so many truly awesome, sweet moments from Emily + Brad’s wedding day. I posted a lot, I know, sorry. We just enjoyed their day so much and I feel like between Justin and my photographs, there were so many golden moments captured that we wanted to share.
Their whole wedding day took place in Yaletown, so we could easily walk from hotel to their wedding day photo session, to their wedding ceremony in Yaletown, all by foot. I love that, because it opened up opportunities of spontaneous random acts of kindness by strangers as we walked around. 🙂
Emily started the day with her girls getting elegantly ready at the Opus Hotel in Yaletown, meanwhile the guys weren’t far down the road, but had such a different getting ready experience at Barber and Co. getting all shaved up while playing billiards. Even the wee ring bearer got a quasi-shaving experience. 🙂 It was so sweet that he was included too!
Emily and Brad had their wedding day first look quietly in a small square in Yaletown and then we continued with their wedding party and then just the two of them for their wedding photo session in Yaletown. We then continued our easy stroll to their wedding ceremony at The Roundhouse.
Emily and Brad were so pleased to be married by their friend and pastor, Matt Menzel from Westside Church, who brought their faith to the forefront in a touching and personalized wedding ceremony with their friends and family around them. The red brick walls of The Roundhouse and the skyscrapers tall around them, made for a really unique urban backdrop to their cocktail party…along with the super tasty popsicle-cocktails they had!
Emily was truly a DIY bride who created so many details together with her friends. She made the bouquets (and so much more) and friends helped with etching the vases, making signage, her cake + cupcakes, MC etc were all done by friends! Oh and her cousin was her planner! Go team! (and i know I’ve missed so many other talented people who helped)
Emily and Brad had an impressive first dance which kicked off a great night of awesome moves for their great celebratory party!
