I am so excited to share Roxanne and Ian’s beautiful Vancouver wedding on the blog today! East meets west as these two gathered with loved ones on a sunny day in August at the beautiful Bridges restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver. Roxanne, a native of Quebec, and Ian, a Vancity original, make the sweetest couple.
Wedding days are filled with anticipation. Every step, from adding cuff-links to adjusting the tie, feels like a big moment. Surrounded by close friends and family, Roxanne and Ian are reminded of where they’ve been and where they’re headed. Emotionally, it was a wonderful roller coaster of reminiscing and musings about their future.
I just love it when there are kids involved! And this wedding was extra special, as Roxanne and Ian’s 8-month-old baby daughter was present to witness her sweet parents tie the knot. Nieces gather ’round, and everyone knows there is something special about this day that is going to last a lifetime. Roxanne, you look absolutely stunning!

Ah…the first look. It’s one of my favourite moments. Maybe THE favourite moment. There is just so much excitement building up until that second that he turns around and looks his gorgeous bride-to-be in the eyes. It’s true romance at it’s finest! These two held each other for so long, and in that moment, whispered things to each other that only they will ever hear.

Ian’s sister and Roxanne’s brother shared the duty of officiating the ceremony, personalizing their day even more. Laughter was heard across False Creek as tears of joy were shed.
As the sun began to set, the words of love, support and admiration for these two filled the room. They are a lucky couple, just as lucky as their beloved guests are to know them.
Roxanne and Ian, I feel honoured to have been a part of your special day, and I wish you all the love and happiness in the world. Sweet Maelle is so fortunate to have landed you two as her parents. May the spirit of your gorgeous wedding day stay with you throughout life’s great adventure.
I am currently booking for 2017 summer weddings. Please, get in touch! I’d be honoured to photograph your special day.
