claire + brad married
Claire and Brad were married standing on a moss-covered hillside in the beautiful forests of Victoria, BC.
With their most dear family and friends surrounding them, they promised their love to each other. The rain had subsided, the air had calmed, and they shared a moment that they will remember forever.
Claire was the most stunning bride, in her custom-made Kathryn Bass dress, standing alongside the beautiful women that made up her bridal party. She was ready to marry Brad, and the time had come.
They celebrated with a toast, and began an evening of dancing, laughter, good food and wine that lasted late into the evening. Their wedding planner, Franziska, had done an incredible job fulfilling their dreams of creating an enchanted evening, full of love and warmth. With chandelier's hanging from the trees and beautiful florals draped over hand-made benches and stumps. The amount of love that went into this wedding - the hand-made chairs from Claire's father + Brad's daughter for each of the flower-girls + ring-bearer, to the poem, written and shared by one of Brad's colleagues. It was a magical night that I will not soon forget.
Thank you two for inviting me to be a part of this day. I hope these photos will act as the avenue to bring back all the beautiful memories from that day, and perhaps even provide to you a glimpse into the moments that you were not witness to. I am so lucky and thankful to call you friends, and I send you all the love in the world.
