On a wet winter day in Vancouver, Keri and Ross tied the knot with style and panache.
Some people fill a room with their laughter – that’s Keri. Bubbly and outgoing, she immediately puts you at ease when you meet. And while she is wonderful on her own, when she is with Ross, she truly lights up.
On a rainy, late winter day in Vancouver, we met Keri and Ross at L’Hermitage. They had decided to have their photos done before the ceremony, and this hotel would be a wonderful backdrop for that. More importantly, it was an even better back-up location given the weather that afternoon. We knew we were on a tight schedule, having to orchestrate the first look, take care of all the “formal” photos and get the entire bridal party to Seasons in the Park. And keeping us on time was the wonderful Christine Jagoe from One by Design.
I already mentioned how dynamic Keri is, and this moment really showcases that. Keri was looking at herself in the mirror and loved what she saw (as she should – she is gorgeous). Her reaction is so perfect, you can’t script moments like this!
A calm moment before we head out to find her hubby-to-be.
Photo Time! We took advantage of some great little spots at L’Hermitage before heading out into the wet Vancouver day.
It was pretty wet outside, but Keri and Ross were open to heading out. Whenever possible, we try to get outside – we love the quality of light in this area, and the minimalist feel of the concrete background.
We arrived at Seasons in the Park to get ready for the ceremony and reception. I love weddings where our couples choose to have both events in the same place, one right after the other. With all the photos out of the way, the bride and groom are free to enjoy their entire evening without interruption from us, and we really love the photojournalistic nature of the coverage we are able to get during that time. Of course, there was one photo we had to get for Keri, on the stairs at the restaurant.
After hundreds of weddings, I still my myself fascinated by all the possibilities in decor. Certainly Darlene from Boquets and Colin from Upright did a fabulous job (as they always do), with both the ceremony and reception spaces.
I love this moment – even though Ross spent much of the afternoon with Keri, he is still so excited to see her walk down the aisle towards him.
This image sums up the rest of the night – it was filled with laughter, dancing, and fun!
