I was welcomed with opened arms when I showed up at the gorgeous beach house in Nanoose Bay that Tyler, Kristen and her parents had rented for a couple of weeks. Pre wedding they relaxed and took in the beautiful views of Vancouver Island. This set the tone for their wedding day- Both Kristen and Tyler were as calm as the sea.
They opted to do a first look before their ceremony, which gave them a chance to privately soak in the beauty of one another. The look on Tyler’s face summed up his forever feelings for his bride-to-be.
After we took some photographs outside the beach house, we headed over to Schooner’s Cove where we continued our little photo sesh. Being the artsy guy Tyler is, I thought the marina would be the perfect place to shoot. The colours and textures would give us lots of diversity and would also represent the fun, vibrant people that Kristen and Tyler are.
The ceremony took place at an oceanfront property in Parksville and was followed by an intimate backyard reception at a family vacation home. Tyler definitely deserves to be credited for all of the personal touches -everything from the table settings to the cafe lights that were strung on the balcony.
The love present at their wedding was overwhelming. I had very quickly passed just the “photographer” stage and felt like I knew Kristen and Tyler on a whole other level. Witnessing them vowing to spend the rest of their lives together was one thing, but being there when they told all of their closest family and friends that they were going to be parents put me and my emotions right over the edge.
Kristen and Tyler, I will be forever thankful that you found me in your google searches. Whether you decide to move to the island or not, I would love to keep in touch. Much love -KBxo
