We were sooooo happy to hear it when we found out Maria and Jon were engaged!! Through our circle of friends, we’ve known Maria and Jon for years and have always felt that they were a truly great pair! This past summer they were married in front of so many friends and their families who came from Vancouver Island and as far away as Sweden. These two live in Yaletown and I love how they really kept their wedding day local to the city they love so much. We simply walked to meet up for their First Look, took their wedding photographs in Yaletown and rode the Aqua Bus to the Olympic village for more wedding photos. Since getting ready, having their photos taken and their ceremony/reception were all within blocks of each other, the whole day was so enjoyable by keeping things simple. Then, after a quick stop in at their lovely room at the Opus hotel, we walked to their wedding ceremony/reception at the Loft in Yaletown. They had a beautiful ceremony in the bar lounge, which felt like a cocktail event, yet ready for a great party! For Justin and I it was extra special, as many of Maria and Jon’s friends are our friends too, which made this an extra nice experience for us too. I’d like to thank Maria and Jon for trusting us to photograph their day as friends and as professional photographers. It was truly a special position for us to be in- to witness and be a part of your super special day.
Jon played a wedding day trick on Maria! He somehow managed to fool Facebook into showing that he had checked in at the Vancouver Airport, moments before he was supposed to meet Maria for their First Look. She knew it was a joke though and responded “…. Are we eloping after all?”
