So Raiden is one of the nicest and care free guys you’ll ever meet. Hands down, no questions asked. I’ve known him for 5 years now and was beginning to think that there wasn’t a girl out there that could make him even happier than he already was. As if Raiden’s smile could get any bigger. But I was wrong.. it could.
I don’t want to go all cliche on you, but from what I witnessed, it was love at first sight. Raiden met Shannon at a fishing resort we all use to work at. When he saw this tall, strikingly beautiful woman, he was smitten. Like all “lodge love” it began as just a summer fling, but quickly escalated into a love that would surely last forever.
Their wedding day was the perfect representation of Shannon and Raiden’s relationship; natural, relaxed and full of love. The vibrant fall colours that embellished the meadows up at Mount Washington that day was the perfect setting for their wedding. The serene surroundings at Raven Lodge were breathtakingly beautiful. Friends and family travelled from all over Vancouver Island and Vancouver to spend the weekend celebrating this deserving couple. Shannon and Raiden had planned for a stress free day and they didn’t want it to be all about them. They continuously said they wanted their wedding to be a “big party” that everyone could enjoy. Based on what I saw, I think they got what they asked for.
You guys are those two peas in a pod that everyone else always talks about. I’ve been lucky enough to see you grow together, support each other and continue to be there for one another and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for you. Much love -KBxox
