When I first sat down to chat with Autumn about her wedding day plans, I was immediately taken by her warmth and her candid, open nature. After just a few minutes together, it felt like we had known each other forever. Love having that connection with my couples!
She knew she wanted to have a relaxed, lighthearted wedding, surrounded by the people who meant the most to her & Shannon. The ceremony would be very intimate, and would take place outside at the beautiful Saxe Point Park in Esquimalt. After making it official, they would join their guests at the Fireside Grill for a casual meal & celebration. Simple, full of love, and fuss-free.
Autumn had a clear vision for their photos and I was all over it! The couple preferred a more documentary approach, that captured the feel of the day… candid moments, real emotions, and authentic captures only. Definitely nothing posed or contrived. It was as if they could read my mind!
On the day of their wedding, the clouds rolled in with a good wind, but the chill didn’t dampen spirits at all. There were many tears of joy as Autumn & Shannon exchanged their heartfelt vows and blended their two families into one. It was an absolute pleasure to document this special day… congrats again to this sweet couple! xo
