I’m kind of feeling like Nathan needs to switch careers… I am sure he is a a fine engineer, but he’s gotten pretty good at the whole wedding planning thing. Michelle and Nate’s wedding day couldn’t have been any more smooth. Their big day was held at Nathan’s parent’s house, on a charming acreage in Nanaimo. The Mr. & Mrs. along with all of their guests, who came near and far, prepared themselves for a weekend of camping, dancing and socializing.

I think it’s appropriate that I switch Michelle’s career as well. It was apparent to me that she should be a stylist. From head-to-toe, Michelle did a brilliant job at selecting the perfect outfit for a backyard wedding. She took everyone’s breath away, but most importantly, she blew Nate off his feet.

You two have been so wonderful to work with. Your kindness has made this process so amazing and the fact that you are photogenic sure didn’t hurt!

Michelle put her bouquet together herself.. maybe she should be a stylist and a florist?

When I asked them to climb up the rocky terrain, Michelle and Nate didn’t hesitate. They were on the same page as me…. “anything to get the shot!” I’d say it was worth it.
